Did Bill Clinton slam Obama? MLK didn’t die so you could whine about gridlock

There is no love lost between President Obama and former President Bill Clinton, and it’s always amusing to watch Clinton take a swipe at his successor – the blamer-in-chief.

During Wednesday’s speech at the 50th anniversary celebration of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, Clinton said that while “political gridlock” is nothing new, “we face terrible political gridlock now.”

“I respectfully suggest that Martin Luther King did not live and die to hear his heirs whine about political gridlock,” Clinton said.

“It is time to stop complaining and put our shoulders against the stubborn gates holding the American people back,” he continued to applause.

Just last week, Obama appeared on CNN to complain that some Republicans actually want to work with him and don’t want to see a government shutdown, but fear backlash from Rush Limbaugh and the tea party if they don’t toe the proverbial party line.

Do you agree that Clinton’s words were a jab to Obama?
