Bill Clinton Praises Romney's Time At Bain

Bill Clinton pulled a Cory Booker when he praised Mitt Romney's business acumen and time at Bain Capital. Booker is the Newark, New Jersey mayor who initially told Barack Obama to back off on the Bain criticism. Clinton also suggested Obama do the same thing.

Clinton praised the GOP nominee for having a “sterling business career” and urged Obama to call off his campaign’s broadsides on Romney’s time as CEO of Bain Capital, a venture capital firm.

“I don’t think we ought to get into the position where we say this is bad work, this is good work,” Clinton said during a CNN interview.

“There’s no question that, in terms of getting up, going to the office, and basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man who’s been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.”

Those sound bites are going to wind up on some Romney ads.

Clinton is Wall Street whore who help to deregulate the financial sector of the American economy and is greatly responsible for turning American into a banana republic. He is defiantly a closet republican.
