NEW YORK (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton on Wednesday said Democrats still can pull the November elections out of the fire if they refute Republican arguments and keep the vote from becoming a referendum on President Obama.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Mr. Clinton warned that “if it’s a referendum on anger, apathy, laced with amnesia, they’re going to have a problem.”

Mr. Clinton said the Democrats should be telling voters that they gave the Republicans eight years “to dig this hole,” double the debt, not produce jobs and then have a financial collapse — so they should at least give the Democrats four years “to dig out of it.”

If the Democrats fail after four years, he said, “throw us out, but don’t bring back the people who dug the hole.”
