Romney Out of Hiding

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Aug• 01•11


Mitt Romney has done a very good job — politically — in staying above the debt ceiling fray for the past several weeks.  It is no easy feat to do that as a Republican front-runner for President. 

Today Romney emerged from hiding on the issue with shot-gun barrels blazing at President Obama.  Said Romney: 

“As president, my plan would have produced a budget that was cut, capped and balanced – not one that opens the door to higher taxes and puts defense cuts on the table. President Obama’s leadership failure has pushed the economy to the brink at the eleventh hour and 59th minute. While I appreciate the extraordinarily difficult situation President Obama’s lack of leadership has placed Republican Members of Congress in, I personally cannot support this deal.”

Given the highly-conservative audience Romney needs to appeal to in the coming months, I’d say he and his campaign played their cards on this perfectly.
