(CNN) – He may be the leader of the Republican Party, but President Bush’s name has seldom been uttered during a recent GOP presidential debate.
When asked Thursday if he’d run on the Bush record, Mitt Romney demurred, saying he’d instead run against Washington because the government is "fundamentally broken."
"When Republicans act like Democrats, America loses," he said.
Nobody and I mean NOOObody in their right mind would embrace the Bush record. Romney is a lot like him though, he doesn't care about the voters, like Bush doesn't care about what the public wants. Me boss you not mentality.
I'm a democrat but Mitt Romney is the smartest candidate of all parties.
Romney sounds like a typical politician trying to get elected by saying anything to fool the ignorant voters of this country. He is no different than Bush and it unlikely to change anything. The fact that he agrees with the Bush stimulas plan speaks volumes.
The trouble was and is that the republicans are not acting like democrats. they are acting like republicans. under the democrats we had posperity. gas was cheap, not to mention milk and other commiities. under the republicans we have has war and prices out of control. and tax cuts for the richest people in the country. way to go Mitt.
Geez, CNN, yet another comment taken out of context! If you watch the debate, his answer about running against Washington came several sentances LATER! His main point - the ONE HE ACTUALLY RESPONDED with was that he'd run on his OWN RECORD. His point about Washington was a secondary point. Where is your journalistic integrity, CNN?????
Mitt is a phony.
He'll say anything to get elected.
That's always been his MO, why stop now?
