Nearly a week after President Obama stopped his campaign’s momentum with a lackluster debate performance, former President Clinton sought Tuesday to help him recover by offering a withering new critique of Mitt Romney.
“I had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did,” Clinton told nearly 2,000 supporters at a campaign rally for Obama and other Democrats. “I thought, ‘Wow, here’s old moderate Mitt. Where ya been, boy?’”
Clinton compared Romney’s performance in Denver to a sales job at the Boston private equity firm where the Republican presidential nominee made his personal fortune.
“It was like one of these Bain Capital deals, you know, where he’s the closer,” Clinton said. “So he shows up, doesn’t really know much about the deal and says, ‘Tell me what I’m supposed to say to close.’ The problem with this deal is the deal was made by severe conservative Mitt,” alluding to Romney’s description of himself in February as having been a “severely conservative” governor in Massachusetts.
A few days before the debate, Clinton added, advisors had urged Romney to recast himself as a moderate.
With a mocking tone that drew hoots of laughter, Clinton imitated Romney saying, “I don’t have that tax plan I had for the last two years. Are you going to believe me or your lyin’ eyes here?”
Clinton, who electrified Democrats in September with a rousing testimonial for Obama at the party’s national convention, did not directly criticize the president. But he told the crowd what Obama might have told Romney as the Republican sought to reposition himself with a centrist’s tone on healthcare, education and other issues.
“I could have used you in that healthcare debate when I was trying to enact a national version of the Massachusetts law, and you were all of a sudden condemning what you had been for,” Clinton said. “And I miss you.”Share on Facebook
