Washington, Oct. 26 (ANI): Former President Bill Clinton is “disturbed and ticked off” by much of what he’s seen from the mid-term election campaign.

Speaking at a rally for 28-term incumbent Representative John Dingell, Clinton argued “right-wing rhetoric” against government spending does not accurately frame how Democrats have tried to aid a country still reeling from a recession, and showed frustration that the attacks against Democrats seems to have stuck.

Politico further quoted him as saying: “I almost gag when I hear these Republicans lambasting the president and the Democrats in Congress, ‘Oh, they’re such big spenders, they’re just crazy, they’re quasi-socialist,’” he said during the rally at the University of Michigan.

“I have a simple question: Who’s the last president to give you a balanced budget?

“I like all this enthusiasm, but frankly there are a few things about this election that have gotten me somewhere between disturbed and ticked off,” he added.

Clinton said he understood why voters are so concerned about the economy, but that voters often forget that things have improved in recent months. (ANI)
