Clinton touts Obama and warns against Romney
David LauterCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Declaring that "America is better off" than it was when Barack Obama became president, former President Clinton lauded the record of his Democratic successor and skewered his Republican rival, depicting the choice before voters as one between "a winner-take-all, you're-on-your-own society" and a "we're-all-in-this-together society."
His voice thinner and raspier but his oratorical gifts unchanged, Clinton delivered a 48-minute address that alternated between lengthy discussions of policy and partisan jabs leavened with humor and admonitions that "this is important, I want you to listen."
Mitt Romney, he said, would "double down on trickle down." His own administration had balanced the budget four times, simply by "arithmetic," he said. By contrast, Romney's "numbers just don't add up."
