Romney: ‘I Was Happy To See Pres. Clinton’ Call My Bain Record ‘Superb’

Last night, President Bill Clinton hopped on the off-message bandwagon, refusing to attack Mitt Romney‘s record at Bain Capital. Unsurprisingly, the Romney campaign took note, with the nominee himself thanking Clinton for his kind words, during an interview on CNBC.

Asked about why he hasn’t more publicly embraced his past in private equity, Romney replied that he’s happy to do so. “I’m very proud of my record,” he said, noting that applies to his past as the governor of Massachusetts, “leader of the Olympics,” and “certainly at Bain Capital.”

Eighty percent of businesses Bain invested in grew during the period of Bain’s ownership, he said, and five percent went bankrupt. The Obama administration will only focus on that small percentage, he said, before going on to note the remarks Clinton made last night.
