Bill Clinton hits Romney on taxes, debt in New Hampshire

Source: la times

“A guy with a tax account in the Cayman Islands is attacking other people for not wanting to pay income tax?” Bill Clinton asked Wednesday. “That’s like Congressman Ryan attacking President Obama for having the same Medicare savings he did. When you really bust somebody for doing what you did, it takes a lot of gall.”

Clinton mocked Republicans for harping on the growth of the national debt under Obama, particularly given that Romney has proposed additional tax cuts and refused to specify alternative revenue sources.

“So their debt plan is to make it $7 trillion worse!” he said. “How can you take this seriously?”

“I am telling you, nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. But the president’s economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run, and a vision of ‘we’re all in this together’ is a heck of a lot better than ‘you’re on your own,’” he said. “There is no ‘you’re on your own’ country in the world succeeding like those who have a good, ‘we’re all in this together strategy.’”

3. Sorry Granite Staters, but he should be in Florida.

He's needed to reassure voters there after letting Romney get away with the $716 billion Medicare Bullshit during the first debate.
