At a campaign event last night in Boston, President Obama criticized “Romney and his Republican allies” for refusing to raise taxes on the rich, insisting to his audience that  Clinton brought about the prosperity of the 90′s by raising taxes.

“We created a whole lot of millionaires to boot.  Businesses did just fine,” he insisted as the crowd applauded. “And you know there are plenty of patriotic, successful Americans all across the country — I meet them every day — who’d be willing to make this contribution again because they understand there is such a thing as the common good.  They understand that we’re in this thing together.”
