I guess this means Billy Boy got taken to the woodshed for his “anti Obama” remarks:
Former President Bill Clinton apologized on Thursday for comments earlier in the week that undermined President Barack Obama’s efforts to raise taxes on upper-income Americans at the end of the year.
In an interview with CNN, Mr. Clinton sought to align his position with that of the White House, saying he agrees with the president’s call for letting the Bush-era tax cuts expire for families earning more than $250,000 at year’s end.
“I support his position,’’ Mr. Clinton told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
At issue is the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts in January 2013. Mr. Obama, in agreeing to temporarily extend the tax cuts in 2010, vowed to veto any future measure that would leave intact the tax cuts for upper-income Americans.
In an interview on CNBC Tuesday, Mr. Clinton suggested that the tax cuts should be extended for all taxpayers until early next year.
“What I think we need to do is to find some way to avoid the fiscal cliff, to avoid doing anything that would contract the economy now,” he said.
