Bill Clinton in Palm Beach: “frustrated and angry” voters make bad decisionsby George Bennett | January 19th, 2010
During the 1994 midterm elections, Republicans capitalized on voter dissatisfaction with Clinton and congressional Democrats to take control of the House and Senate.
In remarks at The Breakers tonight, Clinton didn’t mention the special Senate election in Massachusetts, but said the current political debate in America isn’t addressing solutions to health care, energy and education.
“I find a lot of the rhetoric in this election season largely irrelevant to what’s going on,” Clinton told an audience of about 500 Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County donors. “….My experience is when people are frustrated and angry and they act on their frustration and anger, they’ve got about a 75 percent chance of making a bad decision — not just in politics, but in life.”
