This makes no sense at all. Hillary Clinton is running around the country touting Obama’s record and policies. She has even suggested that she will carry on what he’s started.
So why is her husband saying the economy under Obama has been awful?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Bill Clinton Takes Shot at Obama Economy
Former Democratic president Bill Clinton criticized the state of the U.S. economy under President Obama while campaigning for his wife Hillary on Tuesday.
Speaking at a campaign event in Indianapolis, Indiana, Clinton told a crowd of supporters that the economy has not improved in recent years to help those Americans who are struggling.
“But the problem is, 80 percent of the American people are still living on what they were living on the day before the [2008 financial] crash,” Clinton said to the audience. “And about half the American people, after you adjust for inflation, are living on what they were living on the last day I was president 15 years ago. So that‘s what’s the matter.”

Will anyone in the media ask Hillary and Bill to explain their contradictory messages about Obama?
