Mitt Romney dares to espouse his sensibilities towards the MIDDLE CLASS. Really, Mittens, REALLY?
Again, it was Harwood who got to the heart of the matter, pivoting from a question about
Romney’s seemingly shifting views on an auto industry bailout to a query about
whether he lacked a core.
It has been a charge that has dogged him since Romney abandoned his 1994 and 2002
support for abortion rights, his 2003 backing for a regional greenhouse gas
pact, and the endorsement of gay rights he expressed during his 1994 Senate
campaign and 2002 candidacy for Massachusetts governor.
Romney replied this time: “I have been married to the same woman for 25 – excuse me, I
will get in trouble – for 42 years. I have been in the same church my entire
life. I worked at one company, Bain, for 25 years. And I left that to go off
and help save the Olympic Games.”
In his campaign for president, Romney has championed free markets and vowed to shrink the role of government. The Republican has argued that his business acumen makes him the best candidate to fix the nation’s economy and bring down the stubbornly high unemployment rate. Romney’s opponents point to his business career as evidence that he is willing to cut jobs and benefits.
The story of Bain’s failed investment in the Kansas City mill offers a perspective on a largely overlooked chapter in Romney’s business record: His firm’s brush with a U.S. bailout.
WHY WON’T MITT ROMNEY SHOW US HIS TAX RETURNS?
