BILL CLINTON: Mitt Romney's Policies Are George W. Bush 'On Steroids'
Business Insider ^ | April 30, 2012 | Grace Wyler

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney finds himself battling attacks from not one but two Democratic presidents today, after former President Bill Clinton compared presumptive Republican nominee's platform to a juiced-up version of President George W. Bush's policies.

The comments, made last night during Clinton's first joint fundraising appearance with Barack Obama, represent the harshest iteration yet of the Obama campaign's new "Romney is out-of-touch" attack line.

Here are excerpts of Clinton's remarks, per the White House transcript:

...When you become President, your job is to explain where we are, say where you think we should go, have a strategy to get there, and execute it. By that standard, Barack Obama deserves to be reelected President of the United States. And I'm going to tell you the only reason we're even meeting here. I mean, this is crazy — he's got an opponent who basically wants to do what they did before, on steroids — which will get you the same consequences you got before, on steroids....

The rapist has no business remarking about Carter when he is just as big an idiot as Carter, now he’s attacking Bush.

Democrats don’t have the decency to fade away, their egos won’t allow it.

Must we listen to this sanctimonious nonsense from a national embarrassment who made many of the decisions he made with his pants around his ankles?

Are zer0 and hitlery offering billyboy all the interns he could ever want? or Is there money in it somewhere? If billyboy is going to the highest bidder, mitt must be having trouble finding interns.

How slight is the depth of statesmanship in the democrat party that an impeached former president and accused rapist is an honored spokesman.

“Mitt Romney’s Policies Are George W. Bush ‘On Steroids’”

Actually, I think he’ll be just another Republican big-government “conservative”, like Bush.

But if the article’s title is true, then Zero’s economic policies would Bush’s on steroids, meth and crack, shot out of a rail-gun.

If by that he means wild, out of control spending that seems frugal only by comparison to Obama’s insane spending binge then yes, Clinton is right.

Willard has given them the green light to open up their campaign against him. So far, polls reflect none of that. Willard’s negatives will be driven up higher as he is portrayed as an extremist, against women, against blacks (mormonism’s history), the elite of greedy wall street 1%ers, etc. Surrogates, like Clinton and operatives, will be making these attacks every day from now on. Get used to it.

It has started.

It won’t be a problem for me, especially when I have come to view the term racism as now coming to mean “not democrat” anyways.

Does this mean all the sexual campaign take-downs are completed and kaput? Then ... this is going to be one boring election cycle.

LOL Rummyfan. From the photo ... zer0 appears to be thinking, who thought of this? or he’s about to show how big a zer0 (zer0) is? or when in doubt bring in the clintoons?

Just what we don't need, Slicks stupid opinion.
Sorry Slick Larry Flint gave his opinion earlier and as despicable as he is, he is the pope compared to your sorry ass.

When Bill Clinton can account for the Loral kickback cash from the Red Chinese, I'll quit asking why he's not in Leavenworth.

If anyone in America believes Bill Clinton is in Obama’s corner, think twice!!! Bill and Hillary Clinton hate Obama, but.....they will cuddle up to him until the time is ripe for shoving Obama over the cliff. Truth be stated, Obama is flailing widly, seeking politocal traction in any manner or form.

When he crashes, as he will, Bill & Hillary will be standing there, dumping Obama over the cliff while smiling, and....then Hillary hits the POTUS chase. The Obama magic is gone, he is fading and fading fast. The Clintons will be ready, willing and able to pick up the pieces and move forward without the hated Obama, who be listening to the of the flushing toilet, taking him to forever obscurity.
