Bill Clinton tried to help President Obama recover from a poor debate performance last week by offering “a withering new critique of Mitt Romney,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
“I had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did,” said Clinton. I thought, ‘Wow, here’s old moderate Mitt. Where ya been, boy?'”
He suggested a retort for Obama: “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. And I miss you.”
