Bill Clinton Walks Back Romney Compliment: ‘He Is Wrong On The Economy’
Mediaite ^ | June 2nd, 2012 | Frances Martel

Posted on 06/02/2012 11:28:44 AM PDT by mdittmar

Former President Bill Clinton had some kind words for Mitt Romney earlier this week, when he called the former Massachusetts Governor’s business record “sterling.” In a rally in New Jersey yesterday, however, Clinton appeared shocked that anyone would think his faint praise meant anything other than ceding what was true to the other side, rather than any ringing endorsement. Clinton blamed the “tea party” for a climate where civil discourse was unacceptable.

How queer. The Tea Party rallies were nothing less than clean, patriotic, flag-waving, patriotic, upbeat affairs.
Yet, the likes of Hussein Obama and Bill Clinton villify them. Yet, strangely, the dopeheaded Occupy love-ins, or rape-ins, unruly,violent, nasty, dopeheaded affairs have been praised and applauded by Hussein and Bill (and other Democrats).

Obama must have told Clinton if he doesn’t do what he says he will take away his whores that he keeps on the side. I noticed a pimple above Clinton’s lip yesterday, Im assuming its herpes

It really is amazing. It also shows the power behind obama. Clinton has now got to go out and say “Romney’s business career was sterling but he don’t know as much about the economy as obama does.”

I pray at least 10% of the total number of voter who vote democrat are paying attention to the absurdity of their party.

Little Clintoon threats of “see how much damage I could do if you don’t meet Hillary’s expectations”. We know that the last thing on the mind of the Hillbilly Mafia is the well being of this nation. The first thing is personal profit. How frightening is VP Hillary, only a heartbeat from Bill being President again.

BJ Clinton got the "3 a.m. phone call" from the BO that went something like this:

"If you don't keep your mouth shut and I lose this election, instead of having ol' Hill busy for the next four years after I name her to the VP slot to replace Slo-Joe, she'll be watching your every move for the rest of your life!"

Clearly this frighten dear Billy enough that he nearly tripped over himself retracting his remarks ...

My thoughts as well. It's fun to watch the haughty Bubba, who considered Obama as someone to serve him coffee a few years ago, now, bow to the One as the One bows to King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

Well, too bad Billy’s facts are all about Strawmen and Red Herrings, because those are all he’s got. And yes, I think he’s trying to find another broad while he’s at it.

So - who called Billy up and “corrected” him? Is Obama REALLY big enough to have done this? Soros? Or maybe this came out of the Bilderberg meetings this week?

Questions for Bill Clinton:
1) Which strikes you as a better prospect for fixing the economy: a man with a “sterling business career”, or a man who has spent three and half years destroying jobs, wrecking business, expanding government, and running up unprecedented debt with nothing to show for it but failure?
2) If Romney is “wrong on the economy”, are you seriously suggesting that Obama policies were right?
3) If so, does Obama propose more of the same for another four years?

Slick Willy would be a great guy to have a beer with. I really like the guy personally. It’s just his politics that suck. If the choice today was between Romney and Clinton, I would definitely vote for Clinton!

I expect FReepers to bring it on to me but, really, a few of my best drinking buddies are liberals so WE NEVER TALK POLITICS! We are, after all, God’s children. We should all get along on a personal level is all I’m saying.

Have you seen him lately? They showed the clip on FNC in which he basically endorsed Romney. He looked about 80 years old as well as very thin and drawn.

There’s no love lost between Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Clinton may figure that Hillary would have a better chance of winning in 2016 if Obama was defeated this year. It’s hard for the same party to win the Presidency three times in a row—it has only happened once since the end of WWII and that’s because George H. W. Bush benefited from Reagan’s popularity and Dukakis’ incompetence.

So far, I am favorably impressed with Romney’s rapid response team. That is so much better than McLame’s team.
