There are somethings Bill Clinton does better than anyone else, one of those being eviscerating political opponents with a smile. Yesterday, in Vegas, Clinton gave his take on the first debate. Video and transcript after the jump.

I had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. I mean I saw...I thought 'Wow! Here’s old moderate Mitt. Where you been boy? I missed you all these last two years!' ...Now the problem with this deal is the deal was made by severe conservative Mitt. That was how he described himself for two whole years until three, four days before the debate they all got together and said 'Hey Mitt, this ship is sinking faster than the Titanic...So just show up with a sunny face, and say 'I didnt say all that stuff I said the last two years'...You gonna believe me or your lying eyes here..Come on...What are you doin?...And if I had been the President, I might have said, 'Well, I hate to get in the way of this...I miss you!'

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
