Where’s The ‘Beef’? Clinton’s Answer To Romney Snark

For Mitt Romney, the president’s greatest vulnerability seems to be that Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton — and he is seeking to exploit that perception in his public speeches attacking the incumbent. On Tuesday, the presumptive GOP nominee drew the contrast for an audience in Iowa, harking back to a famous Clinton speech in 1996.

“Almost a generation ago,” said Romney, “Bill Clinton announced that the era of big government was over. Even a former George McGovern campaign worker, like President Clinton, was signaling to his own party that Democrats should no longer try to govern by proposing a new program for every problem. President Obama tucked away the Clinton doctrine in his large drawer of discarded ideas, along with transparency and bipartisanship.”

It was boilerplate Republican rhetoric — and didn’t accurately reflect Clinton’s record or views. He has spoken out strongly against austerity in recent months and wrote a book last year calling for more and smarter public investment that sharply criticized the Tea Party anti-government ideologues to whom Republicans like Romney constantly pander.

But then Romney took the snark a bit further, as Nia-Malika Henderson noted in the Washington Post, when he insinuated that the president is still feuding with his Democratic predecessor.

“It’s enough to make you wonder if maybe it was a personal beef with the Clintons,” said Romney.  ”Probably, it runs much deeper than that.”

So far Clinton hasn’t taken this bait, declining to respond directly even as he campaigns around the country in selected Democratic primaries. But a spokesman indicated that anyone wishing to understand the former president’s  attitude toward Obama — and Romney — might consult a speech he delivered more recently than 1996. Specifically, his remarks at an April 29 fundraiser for Obama hosted by close Clinton friend Terry McAuliffe at the former Democratic Party chair’s home in McLean, VA where he left no space for misinterpretation about his opinion of the man standing next to him:

    I always liked the Clintons – and Hillary is now an exceptional public servant. Even the Republicans have a hard time finding fault with what she is doing. After Obamas 2nd term I sure hope she will be our President for 8 years…..

    Romney has a lot of nerves talking about Clinton, I thought it was about jobs, jobs, jobs. Now that his true record on job creation is being exposed, like Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry started before the Republican party told them to stop, he’s shifting to the deficit, President Obama already said that we need to get the debt under control in a balanced way, not by giving more tax cuts to the rich, and cut meal on wheels, to name a few poor program, for heaven sakes.

    What a compliment for Romney. Clinton vs Obama. But to no avail, over spending and no budget is a way of life all to end in November.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_B6RROC4IUESHT322QS5VJVPYRM Lynda

      The idea that a budget is an absolute is an anachronism. The revenue required to keep the wheels of government turning have continued to operate without that precious budget. Funding is found and things continue as before. Spending is the responsibility of the Congress as outlined in the Constitution. Spending is on the way down and the numbers clearly show, however far too many believe otherwise. The GOP members of the House only this week explained that they no longer intend to cut the military spending that they agreed too just months ago. Seems that nothing they claim to support actually needs more the lip service. Keep in real.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Hi Lynda! I must say that I agree with you. Those budget things and adhering to Constitutional responsibilities are just WAAAAYYYY overrated aren’t they? I mean, why does Obozo even have to follow anything that stupid document says anyway? Why cant he just declare Congress useless and fire them all so he can remain dictator forever? Bernanke will continue to just keep printing money and all of us will live in fairy tale land forever, right?

        Keep telling yourself that, Lynda. Keep telling yourself that. Dont forget to wear your tinfoil hat and click the heels of your glass slippers 3 times! Everything will be OK with Comrade Obozo at the helm!

        Have a nice day!

          From your reply one can only assume that you have no problem with the leadership of the GOP breaking their own agreement. I suppose that is part of that helpful gridlock that you so love. Get a grip on reality and keep it real. Trillions of dollars were suppose to coming out of the Pentagon and the rest of the budget…so nothing being done is a good thing? Are you for real?

          • ObozoMustGo

            Lynda, you wont find me defending the incompetent leadership of the current Republican Congress. They are old timers that have been giving in and compromising with the devils on the left for too long. Although, this year they seem to be standing their ground much better. Gridlock can be a very good thing sometimes.

            Have a nice day!

            No Obozo isn’t for real! He’s on drugs so nobody much likes him!

    • ObozoMustGo

      dl… you’re right on! Most Americans recognize a failure when they see one, and Obozo is the most recognized failure in America today. He will be defeated in a landslide election to Mitt Romney. But the hardcore leftist nutjobs that dominate this sea of insanity called The Memo have no clue what’s coming. They’re insulated in their own little leftist nutjob world that represents maybe 20% of Americans and they rarely poke their noses out from under the rocks where they live.

      Keep fighting the good fight.

The insults clearly point to a failure to actually consider your own remarks before engaging your mouth. You should consider some anger management classes.

They claim Obama has spent so much on vacations, when they are the ones who won’t lift a hand to help work with our Country and are on recess most of the 3 years in question. You sir, fall under the label as a tool as well.

  • jmurray1933

    When Mitt attacks personalities, he is simply avoiding the issues. Someday he may learn that such personality razzle-dazzles are not what an election is all about. His devotion to criticism only reveals his own shallow approach to problem solving and his inadequacies as a leader. Bill Clinton shouldn’t waste his time replying to this trash. Likewise for the President.

    Republicans love to speak about what other people are thinking or what their actions mean, they also love to take words and actions out of context and give them a completely new twist. This is their typical spin, spin that only the dumb Republicans listen to. It helps bring Republican voters to the poles, that why they do it. It is also why it so important for Democrats to vote even if our President looks like he is ahead.

    • Grandpa_In_The_East

      Elsa, You turned on the light bulb above my head.

      I am guessing the Republicans are divided into three groups:
      1. The 1%
      2. The loyal lacky Republicans who believe they will join the 1%
      3. The “dumb” Republicans.

      It is the latter that are the most dangerous, I think.

We, via Presidents Obama and Clinton, definitely need to respond and not let such ignorance from the Republicans’ heart throb go unanswered.

      Elsa, if were only the dumb Republicans who were listening, Romney wouldn’t stand a chance of course, but it isn’t. The lies, misinformation, mischaracterizations, etc. on the part of the right wing talking heads and slimers is hitting a nerve with a lot more Independents and a few not so bright Dems also. They are actually believing some of the crap that the Republicans are spewing because the President and his supporters, up until now, have done a woeful job of countering their absurd depictions.

    I don’t know what people see in the Republicans. They haven’t had anybody even half-way human since Regan. The party of no. The party of mean. It’s not surprising that they’re trying to Co-op Clinton now, after all they put him through during his time in office. Clinton will support Obama, because that is the right thing to do!

  • glad2bout

    I agree with Mitt’s former Republican primary opponent, 19th Century Rick (Santorem), about one thing (and one thing only). Mitt seems to be the weakiest of the Republican contentors to represent that party. He has changed his positions so much that it does seem as though he will be running against himself in this upcoming election. Obama can probably just sit back and watch Mitt debate himself. Who knows, there may even be one debate in which the only participant is Mitt so he can do just that. It is really disappointing to see that certain segments of our population hate Obama so much that they have said they will vote for Mitt anyway. I can only hope that sanity will prevail. No matter how much some people disgree with what Obama has done, he is still better than Mitt who cannot even make up his mind as to what he will do or what his positions are. Heaven help the country if Mitt wins. Rick was right-on regarding Mitt.

    It’s time to challenge those within the Republican party who keep preaching about the “failures of Obama.” All must be reminded that it is not Obama’s failures, but the failure of the Republican congressman who continue to block Obama’s agenda — a plan designed to lead the United States away from a despirate job situation toward full employmenrt and a stable economy. My service as an officer within the military taught me a vital lesson. Everyone must work together, as a team, while facing any challenge. Division within leadership will bring guaranteed mission failure and disaster. Wake up, Americans, and let those who have but one agenda — to have Obama serve only one term — know that it’s time to get in step and march to one drum. God help us if Obama fails to win a second term.

    • ObozoMustGo

      Colonel… thank you for your service to America!

      However, you’ve taken and swallowed the wrong bait, buddy. Obozo has been a disaster for America. He had full control of the house and senate with super majorities for 2 full years. We saw what his plan for America was and judging from the November 2010 election, we Americans OVERWHELMINGLY went against Obozo and elected to have a Congress that would act as an airbreak on his leftist and socialist agenda. In other words, we were scared to death of his agenda and WE WANTED GRIDLOCK! Gridlock is a good thing when we are preventing disaster.

      Obozo will lose the coming election in a landslide just like he deserves to lose. Maybe he can be king at the UN or something. Just get him out of the White House and out of our government for good!

    Romney is an absurd and prolific liar. I am a Democrat, but in the past I have had respect for most Republicans. However, the Republicans of today have turned extremist and many of their views are absolutely beyond the pale. You can’t even have a civil discussion with a Republican anymore without them turning purple in the face and screaming at you.
    The fact is, the economy is steadily improving and we have a lot to thank President Obama for. I believe President Obama kept us from falling into a deep Depression, given the outrageous mess that Bush left him. Romney says that he will be better at job creation than Obama — well when Romney was Governor of Mass. the state was ranked 47th in the nation in job growth! Romney rails against Obama’s health care plan but he approved of the same plan for Mass. and apparently Mass. is doing just fine with it. I can’t believe anyone in their right mind would vote for the likes of Romney.

  • ObozoMustGo

    DISTRACTIONS………. DISTRACTIONS…………….. DISTRACTIONS……..

    BH Obozo has had a sum total of 1 (one) success. Ordering the killing of OBL. That’s it. There is nothing else in 4 years. Nothing. And even that isnt really as big a deal for him as it is for the soldiers who actually did the mission.

    Lets take a look at some of Obozo’s other “successes”…….

    1) Obozo comes into office $10T in debt. 3.5 years later, $16T in debt, and growing quickly.
    2) 2 years complete control of the government. NO budget as required by the Constitution. Still has no budget. The one budget he presented that was actually voted on by the Senate wend down to defeat by a vote of 97 to 0. Nice work Mr. President!!! THAT IS an accomplishment!
    3) A new bankrupting entitlement program called Obozocare jammed through congress against the vast majority of Americans who were against it (and still are) and with the blessings of the idiot Nancy Piglosi who said “we have to pass the bill before we know what is in it”. And after all that, the crowing achievement of this president will be struck down like a rabid dog by the SCOTUS. Nice work, Mr. President!
    4) Persistent unemployment that has been the worst since the Great Depression, especially among blacks and young people. His administration keeps claiming unemployment is going down, but in reality, they manipulate the formula by reducing the # of jobs available. And then they claim that over 8% unemployment is good! Quite an accomplishment in propaganda, but not economics, Mr. President.
    5) Promises to close Gitmo…. instead, he spends $750K on a soccer field for terrorists. Dont get me wrong, Gitmo should stay open. This is an example of how stupid and naive Obozo really is. Nice accomplishment, Mr. President!
    6) Gas prices are up 100%++ across the nation. And Obozo is so dumb he actually believes that increasing supply has no effect on prices… what an idiot! Blocking EVERY permit that has come before his administration and blocking pipelines that increase supplies does HAVE consequences, Mr. President. Gas prices are through the roof! Nice going Mr. President!
    7) Real inflation rates are close to 8% or higher. Who measures inflation without food and fuel??????? Obozo does! Another strong achievement in propaganda, Mr. President!
    8) SOLYNDRA!!!!!!!! need I say more?
    9) OK, I will. SOLAR TRUST… another BILLION DOLLAR boondoggle in your attempt to play venture capitalist with taxpayer money that actually goes to your FAT CAT financier friends who are big donors. Nice money laundering accomplishment, Mr. President! Should I say more? OK.. I will…
    10) ECOTALITY – Another “green” Obozo investment disaster. Obozo gave them $115 MILLION. The SEC investigates fraud at the company. While that’s going on, Obozo gives them another $26 MILLION…. What an idiot! Nice accomplishment Mr. President!
    11) Fast and Furious!!!!! If this was a Republican Admin, all of you nutjobs that write on this web site would be going justifiably ballistic!! It would be the lead story on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSLSD, CNN, etc. etc.
    12) Same with the crook Jon Corzine. He steals $2B in client money, much of it farmers money, to cover his own bad bets. Then he gets to continue on raising money for Obozo like nothing ever happened. Where is Eric The Incompetent Holder? ……… crickets………. crickets……….. crickets………. Thought so!

    I’ll continue to refocus the discussion on what is important and not these foolish smokescreens the left throws up to obfuscate Obozo’s true failure as a socialist in the White House.

    Have a nice day!

      Five things you should know about clean energy investments.

      1. The 1603 grant programs support up to 75,000 jobs and 23,000 renewable energy projects during the height of the recession. According to the National Renewable Energy Lab the program played a major role in maintaining momentum–helping support $25 billion in gross economic activity.

      2. The production tax credits help leverage up to $20 billion in private investment annually. With this key tax credit in place, wind industry has dropped by 90% over the last few decades. Iowa now gets 20% wind penetration–bring the state over 215 business that support 5,000 workers. For the rest of the nation the industry supports 75,000 jobs, with 30,000 in manufacturing.

      3. Those dreaded loan guarantee programs are expected to cost $2 bilion less than budgeted. According to John McCain National Finance Chairman, Herb Allison, the cost to taxpayers will likely be far less than initially thought. In fact, over the past 20 years of experience, the U.S. government has shown a knack for managing risk–with loands and loan guarantee programs only costing the tax payerss 94 cents for every $100 dollar invested. (Private markets are no where that efficient and cost effective_

      4. Home weatherization grew 1000% from April to June of 2011, creating 14,800 jobs. The Obama administration supports the Better Buildings Initiative, a program that has leveraged billons of private dollars to upgrade more than 4 billion square feet of public and private building in the next two years. That’s enough demand to support over 100,000 jobs.

      5. And don’t forget that ARPA-E has supported dozens of potentially groundbreaking technologies in advanced materisl, renewable fuels, electricity generation, wate heat and battery storage.

      Pretending that the future will not happen in the United States and that it is agreeable that China and the rest of the world eat our lunch in renewables is not very good policy or thinking.

        Lynda… like a good dutiful leftist nutjob, you copied that propaganda junk straight off the thinkprogress web site that is the epitome of the phrase “there are lies, damnded lies, and then there’s statistics”. What a bunch of crap!!!!

        The so-called job creation numbers are so much hyperbole and leftist wishful thinking that it’s laughable. I’m surprised they didn’t say anything about “jobs saved” which is the biggest joke of a made up statistic there ever was. Then again, it wouldn’t surprise me to find out that in the lies above they have included “jobs saved” in the numbers, but just forgot to mention that. It’s the leftist way to lie and leave out critical info in order to paint a specific picture that is not real, but works for their propaganda purposes. Witness ABC’s and CNN’s intentional doctoring of George Zimmerman’s pictures and 911 call. They made it up. All leftists in the media are liars.

        Who actually believes that you can loan someone $100 and it only costs you $0.94 cents, and that’s a good thing? Well, leftist nujtobs believe that in leftist nutjob world. Think about it. If a bank loans you $100, how much do they get back? They get the $100 back PLUS interest. So they actually make money on the loan, not lose it! Even if the numbers are real (which they are not), it’s still taxpayer money that these lousy stiffs called politicians are playing with.

    The day after the election someone at your house better hide all the sharp objects and spike all that victory party punch you wont be needing with a nice dose of thorazine. Come to think of it they really should start on that now just to make the world a better place.

    Actually, I was thinking that Mitt Romney is such an empty suit that he should stick to filling himself out and not snarking as ex and current Presidents whom he doesn’t belong in hte same room with let alone the same political office. Ole Mitt is a fraud from the top of his sticky, icky head to the bottom of his $500 shoes that he was able to buy at the expense of people he fired after buying companies they worked for. He knows how to CREATE jobs alright, for him and his Pals kids at the ‘firm’. What a loser.

    First – stop lickingGOP (Goofy OLd People boots – you will never get to be the 1%, dream on baby. Your facts – are wrong – go back to drawing board. Bain-Damon Corp. swindled taxpayers on Medicare scam of 25M. Paid 119M in fines. Mitt was on board and pocketed 500K from Damon.. Romney Tayler Charitable Trust in 2007 pledged to invest in companies that deal with Iran. 20072008 purchased and sold investment shares in COmpanies that deal with Iran, Gazprom, Total, Schlumberger and others.In 2007 he said thet he hoped that Romneycare would be a model for the nation, now he denonce that. He is flipping and flopping like a fish out of water. I can write many things more about Romney and his Bain and where his money comes from. I am sure you don’t.
    Go and buy youself Sketchers shoes, they will slim you down, give some brain and will open your eyes. It’s shoes for Dummies. 60% Americans will buy a dog doodoo in a chocolate if Republicans will spin it that it’s good for you and Faux News, Rushie, Hannity will tell you to buy most of you will beat the door down to buy it no matter that it’s BS and it tastes like BS. You will like it no matter what. Your brain do not register the shitty taste even if your taste buds tells you it’s doodoo. Your mind is so closed that even sledge hammer can not open to let the light on. Vote for brighter light bulbs like you other Idol’s did. Light bulbs and what people do in their bedrooms is more important that economy, jobs and world peace. You are perverts. Take the hood off, you will see and hear better. Ignorance is a bliss and curable, but stupid is forever. Have a nice and better tomorrow Mitt.

    I am glad that you point out the absurdity of Romney trying to co-op Bill Clinton and some Democrats! It’s too late in the game for him to think that anyone takes him serious, let alone the Clintons and Jimmy Carter! It is hilarious that Romney tries to poke fun at anyone, or thinks that he can use divide and conquer tactics to appeal to some Democrat voters. The covert message he is trying to convey did not work in 2008 and will not work in 2012.

    It is obvious that he has no plans for America and have shown by his Swiss bank accounts, his Cayman Island accounts, and investments in numerous foreign countries, that he could care less about Americans as long as he and his family and friends are living well.

    It is not even worth trying to respond to some of the responders trying to defend Romney. They seem to not have a clue as to what is acceptable for public discourse!

    WE SHALL CONTINUE OUR FORWARD THRUST moving out of Economic Disaster and not BACKWARD TO PRE-2008.

    Obama/Biden supporters keep up the good work and use your energy getting the message out to everyone you know! The proof is in the pudding!

    The reason Mitt is dragging out this one is because he and the Republicans have nothing intelligent to propose.

    The old “create division” ploy that the Republicans are always trying to use………..Romney is pathetic.

  • suskopo

    If the Democrats can highlight the flaws in Mitt Romneys skewed character…to the people, they will get it. It should be a danger signal to our Democracy. Mit Romney will shred into pieces all those views that guided the founding fathers into embarking on this journey through Democracy. It is amazing how money can blind Americans as to the common thread we are precariously hanging on in order to safeguard the liberty and justice FOR ALL, for which our young soldiers put themselves in harmsway in support of our liberty and freedom. He already displayed lack of reverence for the TRUTH. He truly thinks he can lie his way to the White House.

      He’s gotten everything else with his money, why not! Money seems to be the word of the day!

  • Thepiedpirate

    could this rag be any more of a joke?

    • ObozoMustGo

      Hey pirate… The answer is a resounding NO! The Memo is nothing more than a part of the leftist Obozo reelection campaign propaganda machine. And I am the life raft of truth in this leftist nutjob sea of insanity.

      Keep coming back and poking the useful idiots in the eyes. It’s all in good fun!

      Have a nice day!

      Obammer… I only had to get as far as “LIBERALS ARE AS DUMB AS ROCKS” to click the like button! :-)

      Most of the leftist nutjobs and useful idiots hanging around this sea of leftist insanity would vote for Obozo even if he was caught on tape performing lewd acts with an underage boy or girl. I dont concern myself with those idiots. But there are a scant few people that seem to be at least a bit objective. And that’s who I post for.

      Keep fighting the good fight. Obozo’s going to lose in a landslide. And he knows it.

      Have a nice day!

      Socialism is big word for someone,especially for a scared, closet bigot!!

  • Thepiedpirate

    Joe Conason is so dull and lacking incite… If Lawrence O’Donnell, with his .000001 market share was supposting this spitoon; it would already be gone. No worries – no one will miss it. No one.

    Not just his stories, his positions too. This guy changes his mind based upon what direction the wind is blowing. He is truely a man with no true convictions. He will say whatever he feels those he is courting for votes want to hear. It will really be interesting when we get to the debates. He can debate Obama in some debates and himself in other debates. I just wonder if he’ll stay at the same podium when he debates himself or if he will walk back and forth between podiums as he argues against the same things he was in favor of when it suited him as governor of MA, etc. If Obama and the Dems can’t expose this guy as the politically empty suit he really is they are truely inept. I say let the fun and games begin. If the Dems are sharp as they should be, Mitt will be in for it. Yes, the Tea Partiers, right-wingers and some independents will still vote for him no matter what, but hopefully the majority of the voters will see through his masquarade. He would make a awful president and hurt a lot of people (but none in the 1%) in this country.

  • glad2bout

    Just one more thing. Ryan will bury us all if he were to get his way. Make no mistake about it, he will do just that. He will do that because he doesn’t care how badly he hurts the people who work or have worked for the Federal government and the reason for that is because he feels that the Federal workforce is part of the problem. Very important that all Federal workers, retirees and their families vote in this election. A Romney-Ryan victory could be a bad game-changer for all of us. Heads-up.
