Last night Bill Clinton stood on the DNC stage and told tall tales about the Obama’s presidency, Romney’s positions and the American Economy.  But then again he had no other choice,  Clinton is seen as more moderate and better respected than Obama. The Reelection campaign hopes that some Clinton “Good Will” rubs off on Obama.

Clinton and Obama have never been bosom buddies, except when political expediency has driven them together.   In fact a recent Politico piece  featured some of Bubba’s best jabs at Obama.

This  fun commercial from Team Romney reminds us that yesterday’s speech had nothing to do with Bubba supporting Obama and had everything to do with Bubba wanting to be adored by the DNC masses.
