Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney thanked Bill Clinton for praising his business record at Bain Capital.
Clinton called Romney’s business record “sterling” on CNN.
Take that, Barry.
The Politico reported:
Mitt Romney on Friday thanked former president Bill Clinton for complimenting his work at Bain Capital, saying he was “happy to see President Clinton…called my record superb.”
“I think Bain Capital has a good and solid record. I was happy to see President Clinton made a similar statement … and called my record superb,” the Republican presidential candidate said.
On Thursday evening, Clinton had called Romney’s business record “sterling.”
I don’t think that we ought to get into the position where we say ‘This is bad work. This is good work,’” Clinton said on CNN Thursday. “The man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold.”
Romney, who was formerly the CEO of the private equity firm, said he was “very proud of my record” at Bain Capital.
“I understand that over the last 28 years, according to a letter they wrote to their investors, 80% of the businesses Bain Capital invested in grew during the period of Bain Capital’s ownership. That’s a pretty good record,” said Romney.
