Former President Bill Clinton marveled at how Barack Obama caught all the breaks in his 2012 presidential campaign, allegedly saying “he’s luckier than a dog with two d*cks.”

That’s what Clinton would tell close confidants in light of GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s constant stumbling, according to a new book “Double Down” written by journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

“Romney’s ineptness staggered Clinton,” the authors wrote.

“He really shouldn’t be speaking to people in public,” Clinton reportedly said in reference to Romney’s “47 percent” comment that was seen as a setback in his bid for the White House.

Clinton supposedly said he had a personal admiration for Romney as a decent family man, but that he “was in the wrong line of work.”

As for Obama’s take on Clinton, according to an account of the book by The New York Times:

When the two of them golfed together in September 2011, an effort aides hoped would bring them closer, they did not even finish 18 holes. Mr. Obama succinctly expressed his view of Mr. Clinton to an aide after coming off the course at Andrews Air Force Base.

“Obama grimaced and replied, ‘I like him … in doses,’ ” the authors write.

Their relationship did eventually improve, as Clinton delivered a prime time speech at the Democratic National Convention in September in support of Obama and campaigned heavily for him in the lead up to the election.
