Rendell Critiques Clinton Camp, Worries About SEPTA Strike

rendellIt’s not an October (or November) surprise that Ed Rendell went off-message.

The former Governor criticized the Clinton campaign’s response to FBI Director Jim Comey’s letter to Congress.

“I think that’s, I wouldn’t do that [attack Comey],” Rendell told radio host Rich Zeoli on 1210 WPHT Philadelphia. “Again, you know, I’m not running the campaign by any means, but I wouldn’t do that. I agree with you.”

“Although I will say the more that comes out about this, the stranger it is,” he continued. “Like the agents had this material or knew about the existence of the material at the beginning of October and didn’t tell the director until the end of October. That makes no sense at all. So the more that this comes out, I think the more facts that come out, the better it is for Secretary Clinton but I agree with you, I wouldn’t attack him.”

Rendell also added that he felt the news would make the contest in Pennsylvania closer.

“I think the FBI stuff gave a boost to Trump, not because it changed anyone’s mind but because I think it took a couple of Trump voters who were pretty discouraged last week with all the news about the polls and stuff and probably weren’t gonna vote and now they’re on fire and they’re gonna vote, so I anticipate, as I said last week, but I even anticipate it more so that it’s gonna be a close election here in Pennsylvania.”

Additionally, he is afraid that the SEPTA strike in Philadelphia could adversely affect Hillary Clinton’s electoral chances.

“This will hold down the turnout in Philadelphia and the Philadelphia area,” he posited. “I guess that would be good for Donald Trump. Who knows? A strike like this usually gets settled. Now, usually. When I was Governor, there were two SEPTA strikes and we settled them both within 12 hours of the union going out on strike. I don’t know, but if it exists until next Tuesday, it’s real problem and a real plus for Donald Trump.”

  8. Ed knows the money is in the middle and he has been happy to plop his fat ass down there and every once in a while give it a little wiggle to the right to juice the cash flow. He used to remember he was on the side of poor and powerless people, but that doesn’t seem to matter to him now that he’s mainly a talking head.
