President Obama, writes Sean Higgins in the Washington Examiner, “may have been forced from the campaign trail back to Washington, but he still has former President Bill Clinton out there stumping for him. Exactly how much help the former president is giving the current one is another matter.”
Higgins scores the former president for attempting to politicize the hurricane and offering an incoherent critique of Mr. Romney. This is not the first time Clinton has attempted to make the case for Obama in a manner little likely to sway undecided voters or to prevent wavering supporters from changing their minds.
Yesterday, Clinton told a gathering of Obama supporters in Youngstown, Ohio about a conversation he had had with the incumbent which makes that latter look like, well, to borrow an expression of one of their partisan predecessors he just can’t stand the heat.
I saw the reports of Governor Romney’s latest ad saying that the president had allowed Jeep to move to China… And so this morning, before he left Florida and went back to Washington, he said, “You know, of all the things Governor Romney has said that probably hurts my feelings the most.”
