(CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said at a campaign stop in Adel, Iowa Friday that Democrats shouldn’t be “measuring the drapes and getting the carpet all ready“ for the White House.
“American is not happy with how the war in Iraq has gone, and is angry, but is not ready to put somebody in the White House who would turn America into a European-type state,” he said.
Romney took shots at each of the three Democratic front-runners. Specifically, he charged Hillary Clinton with promoting economic policies that are “out with Adam Smith and in with Karl Marx.” He also criticized John Edwards for his May comments referring to the War on Terror a “bumper sticker slogan,” and painted Barack Obama’s willingness to talk with enemy states as “a left turn Americans don’t want to take.”
