Bill Clinton is speaking out about Mitt Romney and Bain Capital, and his remarks cast a good light on Mitt Romney, and his time at Bain Capital.
President Clinton told CNN’s Harvey Weinstein that Mitt Romney’s business record at Bain Capital was “sterling” and was also a “good business career”.
Clinton doesn’t feel the necessity to lie for Obama, and attack the good work of a conservative, in order to boost the chances of the worst president in US history to be reelected. (only to do more damage to our country and economy)
I have always trusted President Clinton, and think that, besides the whole Monica Lewinsky ordeal, Mr. Clinton usually tells the truth, even if it is not what the rest of his party wants to hear.
USBACKLASH would like to commend President Clinton on his ongoing bipartisanship and fairness, not seen from many other Democrats.
President Bill Clinton veered sharply off message Thursday, telling CNN that Mitt Romney’s business record at Bain Capital was “sterling.”
“I don’t think that we ought to get into the position where we say ‘This is bad work. This is good work,’” Clinton said. “The man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.”
Clinton also went on to say that Romney’s time at Bain Capital represented a “good business career.”
The Obama campaign is in the third week of an all-out assault on Romney’s time as a corporate buyout specialist — accusing the GOP nominee of bankrupting companies and laying off workers all while pocketing a profit for himself and investors.
But the negative tenor of their attacks on an influential segment of Wall Street have made some Democrats uncomfortable. Clinton is the highest profile Obama surrogate so far to show discomfort with the attacks on Bain, with the former president even praising the company and Romney’s record. Newark mayor Cory Booker and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick also both declined to press the attack against Bain.
In Booker’s case, he released a YouTube video clarifying his comments after calling the Obama attacks (and Republican counter-attacks on Obama) “nauseating” — all while being publicly chastised by top Obama staffers.
