Clinton: Romney's Right, the Economy Isn't "Fixed" -- and Obama Knows It

Is this a gaffe by Clinton or is he retaliating to Obama for using Hillary? Clinton usually says what he intends to say, so it seems like the latter. He gets to throw in a dig, then sound likes a loyal trooper by asking voters to give Obama more time.

I bet if you heard the whole thing you'd have Clinton saying that O can't fix it because of a Republican Congress.

If Obama had fixed at least SOME of it in the first two years, the Repubs would never have gained the House.

Hard truth-telling from an unlikely source, given his history.  I give you former President Clinton, campaigning in Ohio this afternoon:

Message: Romney's right.  The economy stinks.  Obama recognizes this painful reality, and wants to cry.  Of course, Clinton went on to make his now-familiar "but look at all the terrible 'Republican' policies that got us into this mess" argument, urging Ohioans to give The One some more time.  Obama needs that time, you see, to raise taxes...
