(CNN) - GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign issued a statement after former President Bill Clinton's address to the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, saying Clinton "drew a stark contrast between himself and President Obama."
"Bill Clinton worked with Republicans, balanced the budget, and after four years he could say you were better off," Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams wrote. "Barack Obama hasn’t worked across the aisle – he’s barely worked with other Democrats – and has the worst economic record of any president in modern history.
"President Clinton’s speech brought the disappointment and failure of President Obama’s time in office clearly into focus,” Williams continued.
If Bill ever wants to come lead Canada, he would win in a heartbeat. That is an invitation by the way...
Good point the Republicans refuse to work with the POTUS,and are bent on destroying him instead shame.
If Bill ever wants to come over and lead Canada, he would win in a heartbeat. That is an invitation, by the way...
Romney is a fake and a joke...
Ryan Williams..go to bed with your statement
I LOL'D at the GOP response.
Is the GOP serious? It's Obama who has refused to work with them.... Yeah, the GOP hasn't made their refusal their number one priority.
Just the type of response that you give when you don't actually have a good response.
It's so funny how Republicans would just like everyone to pretend that Bush never happened... "Obama has the worst economic record of any president in modern history." REALLY? How can you even say that with a straight face. Are these guys just stupid? Worse record than the guy that drove the country into the largest recession in generations just in time to hand the country off to the Dems with record debt and a broken, rigged tax system?
Republicans are hopeless people... so far from reality. It's just beyond frustrating to keep hearing this instead of having discussions about REAL issues.
I watched the speech and that's not what I got out of it at all. I guess Republicans do live in a parallel universe.
Man, Obama may not be clinton but Romney is definitely GW Bush's clone. If I were the bishop I would lay off Clinton and focus on lying hoping the flock will just believe him.
I listened to the speech and that's nor what I got out of it at all. I guess Republicans do live in a parallel universe.
Amazing. Republicans opposed _every_ initiative of Obama, while Obama tried to bend over backwards to accommodate Republicans. And they now they're telling that Obama has failed to "reach across the isle".
It' amazing how Romney can just ignore the entire content of that speech and STILL come away blaming Obama for the mess that the Republicans left him...
Too bad there is nothing to contrast between Willard and "Dubya".....
It is entirely possible that Obama has not worked across the aisle because the admitted plan of the Republicans is to obsruct every offer made. You cannot have a bipartisan effort if only one group is willing to compromise.
One thing the Republicans do not understand is that compromise is not: "Our way or the highway"
They still won't mention GW Bush's economic record will they ?
Those that live in denial , stay in denial !
Nice try, Romney. I am an independent and was on the fence until listening to Bill Clinton tonight. He convinced me to vote for President Obama. I have children and elderly parents, and can't afford to vote for Romney.
Ryan Williams, I hope that not everyone with the last name Ryan is a liar, first Paul Ryan during his convention, and now you? You may be able to fool your blind followers. But we have seen the republicans in congress for the last 31/2 years make public their only agenda, make sure Obama is a one term president as your supremee leader Rash Limbaugh has directed your party to do. Not this time, I know your party wants to take America back, but we want to take America forward. BARACK OBAMA 2012, 2016, 2020, 2024. 2028, 2032, 2036, 2040, 2044, 2050........................When the republicans in congress turned down the offers from Barack Obama to help with the unemployment mess that your party created, your party said no. and no, and no. So don't be a LIAR like Paul Ryan.
Its a shame that even after those remarks from former President Clinton that Republicans cannot see that America is changing. We are no longer misinformed about the facts. With today's technology, it takes a few simple clicks, the ability to research, and arithmetic, to know that what was said is on point. Its okay to be for one side or the other but America wants people in office who are going to be real and fight for American equality, because we are all AMERICANs. This is our country and we want what is best for it.
It's time for the Rep party to get their heads out of the sand. It's only driven by greed and ego neither of which is beneficial to the greater interest of the entire country. Just because you have money does not make you a better person or more important than the common citizen. It's time to come down off your high and might pedestal and work together for the greater good; something that has not happen since Clinton. This party has done nothing helpful or supportive, and has only worked to stop anything that is , all in an effort to stop this President. YOUR PARTY has done a great injustice to our wonderful country. Shame on you!!!!!
Contrary to what Bill Clinton said, I think Obama could have doen a bettter job of the economy if he had focussed on the Economy at a critical time instead of Health Care Reform. That he remained hell bent to pass the health care reform even when he knew the Economy was so bad just goes to show that he is an he doesn't have the flexibility to make a complex economy work
Obama is so done.No way he will be reelected.
Arithmetic lesson is what Mitt and the rebuplicans need.
Well, you know... Romney's campaign is correct. Clinton gave a great speech, but Obama is not Bill Clinton. Never has been, never will be.
Obama didn't work with Republicans? Well, it's sort of hard to do that when they are calling him a liar in the middle of a joint session of Congress, and Jan Brewer is sticking her finger in his face. It seems that the Republicans didn't want to work with him. I would buy that argument if they had reached across the isle and he had turned them down.
