Mitt Romney Says Bill Clinton Told Him Hurricane Sandy Won Obama Election

WASHINGTON -- Mitt Romney claimed during a call with donors on Wednesday that he received a call from former President Bill Clinton, who told Romney that had it not been for Hurricane Sandy, he might have won the election.

ABC News offers the following transcript of the former GOP presidential nominees comments:

I spoke with President Clinton the day before yesterday, he called and spent 30 minutes chatting with me. He said a week out I thought you were going to win. And he said, but the hurricane happened, and it gave the president a chance to be presidential, and to look bipartisan, and you know he got a little more momentum, and of course he also said that when he was watching Ann speak at the Republican convention, he decided he was tempted to join the Republican Party. So he may have just been effusive with generous comments as he chatted.

<snip>

The former president would not be the first to frame Sandy for Romneys loss. In the days leading up to the election, Republican strategist Karl Rove and aides within Romneys campaign began pointing fingers at the hurricane for halting the candidates momentum. Republicans also decried top Romney surrogate New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for lavishing the president with praise over his response efforts in the wake of the storm.

<snip>

A spokesperson for Clinton did not immediately return a request for comment.

3. Clinton is simply wrong.
But at least he said something that made Mittens feel better. This appears to be a priority for Presidents Clinton and Obama, making Republicans feel better when the Democrats do something Republicans might get ruffled feathers over. Third way is right. Get it?

5. Thing is, I am sure Bubba knows that.
Bill Clinton is one of the smartest, best-informed people I have ever heard speak; and the subject at which he is the very smartest and best informed is American politics.
