Mitt Romney revisited Bill Clinton’s White House escapades during an interview with NBC’s David Gregory on Sunday, saying the former Democratic president “embarrassed the nation” and “breached his responsibility as an adult and a leader.”

The 2012 Republican nominee for president made the remarks while discussing the resurgence of talk surrounding Bill Clinton’s sexual dalliances with many women, including White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Led largely by Republican senator and 2016 presidential hopeful Rand Paul, Republicans have tried to put Hillary and other Democrats on the defensive, calling Bill Clinton a sexual predator who disrespects women.

Romney pulled no punches against Mr. Clinton, but also criticized Paul’s strategy of lumping Hillary with her philandering husband. “[President Clinton] embarrassed the nation, he breached his responsibility, I think, as an adult and as a leader, and in his relationship — and I think that’s very unfortunate,” he said.

“But I don’t think that’s Hillary Clinton’s to explain,” he added. “She has her own record, her own vision for where she would take the country. And I think that’s something that should be debated extensively in the 2016 campaign.”
