Mitt: “I didn’t say things are worse”

Oh, but you did:

Romney expanded on that thought on Monday, again from New Hampshire:

“The people of New Hampshire have waited long enough. They want to see good jobs. They want to see rising incomes. They want to see an economy that’s growing again, and the president’s failed. He did not cause this recession, but he made it worse.”

But on Thursday, when questioned by an NBC producer why he believes the Obama polices have hurt the America’s financial recovery, Romney did some back-tracking.

“I didn’t say that things are worse,” Romney said, speaking in front of the boarded-up Allentown Metal Works, a steel plant Obama once highlighted as benefiting from the stimulus.

Dear Mitt: if you can’t stand by what you said the previous day about the devastation Obama’s economic policies have wrought, then exit. Please. For everyone’s sake.

Why am I surprised? Via Dan Mitchell, a Conan O’Brian joke:

Experts are predicting that in the first Republican debate, Mitt Romney will face his fiercest ideological opponent: himself from four years ago.

Professor Jacobson rightly reminds of the Lombardi Rule:

[Obama] is driven folks, and single-minded in his desire to force on this country his vision. And right now, the betting is that we have at best a 50/50 chance of defeating him.

Not motivated for 2012 yet?  Still planning to sit home if your candidate doesn’t win the Republican nomination?  Want to go third party if we get someone too RINO-ish as the nominee?

Fight to get a conservative the nomination, but remember the Lombardi Rule takes effect the nanosecond the nomination is decided.

Defeat Mitt in the primaries. He must not be our candidate lest we end up with a “slightly less” big-government, I-believe-in-climate-change, let’s empower the nanny state, RINO.

  1. Romney makes me edgy. He’ll get my vote in the general election, but I just can’t go with him in the primary.
