Clinton Says the Country is a Mess

Bill Clinton writes in his new book, Back to Work, that last summer's political fight over raising the U.S. debt ceiling made the nation look "weak and confused" overseas, the AP reports.

He also "describes the current state of the country as 'a mess' and largely blames the anti-government sentiment embodied in the tea party movement that has held sway since the 1980s. But Clinton also criticizes Obama and other Democratic lawmakers for not making a stronger case for the steps they took to stabilize the U.S. economy in 2009, like the bank and auto company bailouts and the $787 billion economic stimulus program."
