Mitt Tries to Break Up Barack and Bill

Excerpts of Mitt Romney's prepared speech for his visit to Iowa Tuesday show that the Republican presidential candidate is still trying to break up the Clinton-Obama alliance that's developed between the former president and the current one for the reelection effort. "Even a former McGovern campaign worker like President Clinton was signalling to his own party that Democrats should no longer govern by proposing a new program for every problem," Romney planned to say. "President Obama tucked away the Clinton doctrine in his large drawer of discarded ideas, along with transparency and bipartisanship. It's enough to make you wonder if maybe it was a personal beef with the Clintons ... but really it runs much deeper."
