Rep. Blackburn: Clinton Pointing to Failed Obama Policies

By    |   Sunday, 12 April 2015 12:18 PM

Hillary Clinton's attempt to point to the future of America's children in her presidential campaign will serve only to remind voters of the failed policies of her Democratic predecessor, President Barack Obama, says Rep. Marsha Blackburn.

Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, appeared Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union,"  saying that the 5.5 million more people in poverty and a labor force participation rate lower than it has been since 1978 isn't really something the former secretary of state wants to remind people of.

"She knows that all women want … the gift of opportunity for their children and grandchildren," Blackburn said. "But this administration has on so many different fronts short-circuited that and has made the situation worse."

Clinton would be wiser to run against Obama's record, Blackburn said, because what has happened during his years in office "makes it much more difficult for our children and grandchildren to have a fruitful, productive, free life."

Clinton is expected to announce her candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president on Sunday. She'll be followed on Monday by Republican Marco Rubio.

"We've got a team full, and a deep bench," Blackburn said of the large GOP field. "When they look at our bench they see people that are new faces, that are very diverse, that have big-tent ideas."

Clinton, on the other hand, reminds people of the scandals she and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been accused of, she said.

Clinton, who served as Obama's secretary of state, also reminds people of what they don't like about the president, Blackburn said, citing "Obamacare, which they want repealed, and the Keystone Pipleline, which they want passed."
