Here’s some footage of Bill Clinton’s keynote speech at the International Association of Fire Fighters’ conference this morning, where he assailed Texas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry as a “good-looking rascal” whose anti-government platform was “crazy.”
I emailed a Perry campaign spokesman this afternoon for response and will update when it comes in.
The video and transcript are below.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made an unflattering cameo in a video created by the International Association of Fire Fighters that was shown at the group’s Health and Safety Conference this morning.
Before Bill Clinton’s keynote speech — where he called Texas Governor Rick Perry a “good-looking rascal” whose anti-government rants were “crazy” — the union showed an eight and a half minute video, criticizing lawmakers who are cutting fire department budgets.
Footage of Christie appears just before the 3:00 mark, when a narrator says the union is exposing politicians “as phonies with an extremist political agenda.”
Bill Clinton said newly announced presidential candidate, Republican Governor Rick of Texas was a “good-looking rascal” whose railings against the federal government were nonsense.
Speaking at a fire fighter’s conference in midtown Manhattan this morning, Clinton said, “I got tickled by watching Governor Perry announce for governor, for president. He’s a good looking rascal.”
The audience — members of the International Association of Fire Fighters from across the United States and Canada — laughed.
