Mitt Romney changes the subject back to the economy

After congratulating President Obama for his part in the Demise of Osama Bin Laden, Romney wasted no time in stepping on Obama's parade by changing the subject back to the economy.
Romney was in Nashua, N.H., today, where he met with local business leaders and several local politicians.

"The enduring issue," Romney told them, "is the strength of our economy and our ability to create good jobs."
Business Owners told Romney that they are struggling with rising fuel and health care costs and getting the capital they need to expand.

Romney pointed out that there should be a cap on the regulatory burdens they face. He said anyone proposing a new regulation would have to remove an old one.

There is a video snippet of part of the event that you can view here.

Romney in NH today:


WASHINGTON -- Likely presidential candidate Mitt Romney this morning said President Obama deserved to be credited with an “enormous success” for overseeing the mission that killed Osama bin Laden.

“We’ll all remember where we were when Osama bin Laden was finally killed,” Romney told reporters this morning, according to an NECN video. “I congratulate the president, the intelligence community, our military. It’s an extraordinary accomplishment.”

“The bad guy took one in the eye,” he added.

Romney, who is considering vying for the role of occupying the Oval Office, was also eager for some more behind-the-scenes details.

“I look forward to hearing more,” Romney said. “How did we find out where he was located? What sources of intelligence were developed over the years? How many blind allies did they have to pursue until they finally found this guy?”
When asked whether the killing of the world's most wanted terrorist made Obama unbeatable in the 2012 election, Romney said, “I don’t think so.”

“I don’t know whether it helps or hurts politically the president but I really don’t care,” Romney said. “The right thing is we got the bad guy and the nation celebrates that. We’re all Americans. This is not a Republican or a Democrat thing. This is an American thing.”

Amen to that.
