Gee, thanks Bill! Clinton says Romney is RIGHT and the economy is ‘not fixed’ . . . and how he thought Obama ‘was going to cry’ during debate

Bill Clinton has conceded that Mitt Romney is correct that the economy is ‘not fixed’ and said he thought Barack Obama was going to cry during Tuesday’s debate ‘because he knows that it’s not fixed’.

Former president Clinton, speaking in Parma, Ohio, during a campaign event with Bruce Springsteen, immediately added that Obama offered a better plan than Romney for getting out of the rut during the next four years.

But his frank admission about the state of the economy was immediately seized on by the Romney campaign as bolstering the republican argument that a change of leadership in the White House is needed.

‘Governor Romney’s argument is “we’re not fixed, so fire him and put me in”. It is true, we’re not fixed,’  Clinton said at in Parma, Ohio. ‘When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said in the debate, “I had so much hope four years ago and I don’t now”, I thought he was going to cry because he knows that it’s not fixed.’

This was a reference to a question from Michael Jones, a young undecided voter, at the debate in Hempstead, New York.  Read more:

  1. Well let’s see … considering Bill has never liked Obama, and vice versa, and considering Obama turned Bill down for assistance with debate prep before the first debate, and has since he postured himself so that the State Dept would appear more negligent than he and the “situation room” are with regard to Benghazi, is it really any surprise?

    I imagine in his heart of hearts Bill would rather Romney to wins. Why? Because it’s the only way Hillary would stand a chance in 2016; considering no American would vote Dem for another 8 years after Obama; if he gets another term and moves ahead with proposed EPA restrictions and the rest (which by itself will destroy our economy against a global market). Not to mention that Obama would likeley be impeached anyway after the election, once Congressional hearings begin over Benghazi.

    Bill knows Obama is a self absorbed amateur who he has to pander to in order tow the party line, nothing more. Bill on the other hand was a self absorbed master negotiator, and still is; there’s a difference =]
