President Clinton Praises Romney, Criticizes Obama Campaign
Former President Clinton said in a television interview on CNN Thursday night that President Obama's re-election campaign should stop focusing on Mitt Romney's private equity business, Bain Capital, and that Romney's business background does make him a strong presidential candidate.
"I think he had a good business career," Clinton told guest host Harvey Weinstein, a movie mogul who is one of Obama's top fundraisers. "There's no question that in terms of getting up and going to the office and, you know, basically performing the essential functions of the office, the man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold."
Clinton encouraged the Obama re-election campaign to focus on the "real issues" of what Romney will do as president and how that compares to what Obama has done.
"The Obama proposals and the Obama record will be far better for the American economy and most Americans than those that Gov. Romney has laid out," Clinton said. "And that's what the election ought to be about."
