From CNN's Carol Costello:
Bill Clinton, the last two-term Democratic president, may have thrown cold water on President Obama's bid for a second term.
Clinton told the conservative website "Newsmax" that now is not the time to raise taxes saying, "I personally don't think we should be raising taxes or cutting spending, either one, till we get this economy off the ground. This has been a dead flat economy."
However, in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Clinton blasted Republicans for their anti-tax ideology and said he'd support the president's millionaires tax.
Nevertheless, conservatives are thrilled about Clinton's comments to "Newsmax," with Congressman Eric Cantor saying, "I hope President Obama will heed the advice of President Clinton and drop his demand for one of the largest tax increases in American history."
