Bill Clinton: Mitt Romney's business record 'sterling'

Bill Clinton: Mitt Romney's business record 'sterling'

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.

Good, I hope more and more dems speak up if not for Romney directly at least speak up for BAIN.

Obama, Axelrod,and Company, can keep throwing that stuff out there, but none of it is going to stick.

When the likes of Clinton and others in the Party come out and make statements, like the above, it proves that they are barking up the wrong tree.

Anyone who bothers to research Romney's record with Business in comparison to Obama's, can plainly see that there is absolutly no doubt as to who has a better understanding of how the system works.

Of course if your entire experience is that of being a Community Organizer and Politician and you have been schooled by the likes of George Soros and Bill Ayres, you cannot be expected to understand anything about Capitalism.

A very common rumor(fact?) is that Clinton despises obama. If so Clinton may work to undermine the obama campaign. Clinton is far more "slick" than obama. Clinton can function on his own. obama is dependent on handlers and teleprompters. Bill may also be thinking Hillary in 2016.
