Mitt Romney Talks Debt Ceiling at the Rotary Club in Portsmouth, NH (FULL VIDEO 07-14-11)

It didn’t take long for Mitt Romney to field a question on the debt ceiling negotiations today during an event at the Portsmouth Rotary Club in New Hampshire.

After Romney’s opening remarks – and promising the audience that he wasn’t going to “be the cure to their insomnia” – he took questions from the audience.

The first one asked what he would do regarding the debt ceiling if he were president.

“The answer for the country is for the president to agree to cut federal spending and cap federal spending and put into place a balanced budget amendment,” said Romney. “That for me is the line in the sand.”

“It is within the president’s power to say to the leadership in the house and the senate that ‘I’ll cut spending I’ll cap the amount of spending and I’ll pursue a balanced budget amendment and if the president were to do that this whole debt limit problem goes away,” he said.

Finally, Mr. Romney is showing some leadership. I am glad he finally stood up to Mr. Obama and told him he had to cut the spending because we are 'eating the peas. I am glad that he also recognized that we have to deal with entitlement. It sound like he fixed his state's education system, but it is still a shame that he ruined his state's health system.

The citizens of Massachusetts don't seem to agree with you, OJ. They seem to like it by fairly wide margins according to all the polls I've seen, save that one outlier.

So why do you keep saying that?

I guess you missed the more recent polls that RW posted. In any event if the people of MA do not mind waiting longer to see a doctor, I guess whatever floats their boat.

RW is a credible and objective source for Romney info? That's a good one. Good to see OJ showing a little humor.
