What ‘contradiction’? [Darleen Click]
This is more JeffG’s bailiwick than mine, but even I understand this attempt at “gotcha” is full of crap
Mitt Romney Speech Line Contradicts 2009 Claim He Wanted ‘Liberal Policies’, Obama ‘To Fail’
Despite saying he wishes “President Obama had succeeded, because I want America to succeed” in his GOP convention speech, Mitt Romney hasn’t always felt that way.
Just after Obama was inaugurated, Romney explicitly said he wanted the president to fail:
I want liberal policies to fail. I want him to fail in trying to put in place a health care plan that takes away the private sector from health care. I want him to fail in this cap and trade program as long as China and Brazil and Indonesia are not going to play in it. But I want him to succeed as a president, meaning, I want him to succeed in strengthening our economy, keeping us free, bringing our troops home in success from Iraq and Afghanistan. But I don’t want his liberal policies to succeed.
Did the scribbler of this piece, Paige Lavender, not even read the quote she lists?
The mind, it boggles.
