    I see now where Romney is running an attack ad using some of the negative things President Clinton said about then Sen Obama back in 2008 when they were practically opponents.. The Romney campaign is desperate and pathetic and if they are not careful the Obama people could turn the tabels and use negative things Republicans said about him in 2011/2012 from Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and even Rush Limbaugh. And if they want to go further how about some of the stuff said by John McCain in 2008 and also Donald Trump. It's all on YOU-TUBE and can be found very easily. The Romney folks are not very smart when it comes to this.

    Bill Clinton is honest.

    and after Romney hiring his side kick Paul Ryan and getting reviews like this...

    Paul Ryan‘s speech at the Republican National Convention last night was filled with “blatant lies and misrepresentations” according to an op-ed in Fox News, the all-but-official news agency of the GOP. That’s pretty shocking, since Fox News serves as the Republican paper of record.

    Romney knows he's on his own and is like a bully on a playground about to get his butt kicked...START THROWING THINGS while you're running away!

    Now it's starting to look like Obama really needs help with his re-election. Shouldn't Obama be able to win on his job performance, I mean everyone speaks wonders of this man, they speak of all his accomplishments and then he has to have Clinton go out and win him his re-election.

    If Clinton has to win Obama his re-election than definitely Obama is not as great as Democrats say he is nor has he done the fabulous job Democrats claim.

    There is only one reason why Bill Clinton is supporting President Obama. If Romney wins this election, he will definitely serve two terms, making it impossible for Hillary to be President. If Obama wins, then she is a shoe in for 2016.

    Good ole Bubba. We can count on him.

    He's mentally younger than Mitt.

    Mitt has early on-set dementia. Look up the signs and watch him. You'll see.

    The Senior Citizens in Florida will understand President Clinton when he explains how the Rob-Me Romney and Lyin-Ryan budget will trash Medicare and hand Social Security over to the fat-cats on Wall Street. Romney says that's an exageration... he says "trust me"... He says we won't hurt those who now have coverage... Does he think Senior Citizens want him to hurt their children or grandchildren? How selfish does he think we are?

    Those folks who got thrown in the street with no pension by Bain Capital trusted him. He won't even show people his tax returns but he wants us to "trust him"? I don't think so..

    It sounds like Bill Clinton should go give a lift to the pizza shop owner that had his business drop off after his amazing media hug with the president.
