Bits of speech which was why this -- for going on too long -- He saw a lot of the classic hallmarks of the Bill Clinton's speech down home humor a lot of long key substantive talk.
He made one assertion that I think will be much debated in the days to come.
And it might have been the most important thing he said which was there was he said listen to be very carefully.
No one who found the damage that Barack Obama confronted on this first day in office to this economy.
Could have -- at all within four years but remember what Barack Obama himself President Obama told The Today Show in 2009.

It'll be -- -- to see.
Whether the president's held accountable for that or whether in fact -- Bill Clinton's vision of -- in irreparable damage was done.
And what or or whether he should have cleaned up within three years and should have a one term profits.
-- -- through political history but I thought of Abraham Lincoln reminded face and slightly more trying to -- -- -- could be to speak and he did see great deal of improvement over four years.
But having said that.
Everyone was worried I guess of the Obama White House how far this president would go.
-- to defend the president president he obviously went way -- -- delivered a great speech.
But there are a lot of -- -- quibble with two of the Medicare savings that he alluded to.
-- some of the overall.
Gains and advantages stimulus.
The auto factory jobs number that is hotly debated because it could just explain the role.
Of others in the auto industry the Toyota -- on -- that might or might not have benefited from that stimulus we -- a date this -- nauseam but but.
Did Bill Clinton -- -- rationale for explaining.
The tepid this of this recovery and that the trend is your friend.

Navy blue war you know what the died -- -- put -- months prior -- that this is what's good.
Here was Bill Clinton's most important accomplishment of this evening.
Every one of the Democrats packing this -- leaves here feeling good about themselves as Democrats.
Feeling good about the idea that the democratic president can be good for the economy.
And -- all the millions watching at home.
There's a very high strong chance that -- to turn off their TV tonight after the don't want to -- -- -- Feeling good about themselves as Democrats.
And I think that we -- tornados -- names.
To energize that base insane way Republicans said.
They succeed energizing -- -- of Tampa because that seems to be when it comes down to write get out your cheerleaders.
We'll see in a few days time whether there's any significant convention bounce here -- whether there's any significant.
Mobilization and even those bounces can be illusory but John McCain got a greater balance the Barack Obama for years ago.
That's -- -- but but the point is that Bill Clinton enables all the people here to feel as if they're on the right track despite what all the polls show us which is that majorities of Americans don't believe we're on the right track right now and of course he framed as a choice.
And and really -- the fight to governor Romney on welfare reform on Medicare and Medicaid.
On student loans and of course we heard from other speakers -- like -- flock.
And and the number of others who took the flight to the Republicans are on the gender basis.
You know what I did it's knowing enough about health -- -- -- is united I've known him.
There are a lot of they had an unexpected because there -- a lot of ticked off governors there are a lot of surcharges that have.
On to the point where a poll more than 5000 doctors had more than 45 wondering about the -- being in the professor and so does all that to address but but.
To the only that.
This is allows the electorate to say all right we'll forgive you for the low grade point average because we think you're still -- Promising student.
Well well or in -- we think you can do what Bill Clinton is done and what Bill Clinton is saying you can do.
I think it was an important speech that laid the predicates for President Obama on Thursday arcades.
-- you very.
