Bill Clinton invokes Romney's 'daddy' in speech to auto workers

News

Speaking at the United Auto Workers National Community Action Program Conference in Washington on Thursday, former president Bill Clinton criticized Mitt Romney for opposing the auto bailouts. And he totally went there.

"Every time I hear Mr. Romney talk about this, I think his daddy must be turning over in his grave," Clinton told the union workers. George Romney, Mitt's father, served as president of American Motor Corps. in the 1950s and early '60s.

On "Fox and Friends" this morning Romney's wife Ann shot back. "Mitt’s father would be cheering and would be with Mitt a hundred percent,” she said. “What Mitt suggested was finally what happened, is that they went through a structured bankruptcy. It’s exactly what ended up happening — Mitt just said to do that before they already spent $17 billion."
