Mitt Romney rejects the “Balanced Approach”

Remember that section of the presidential debate where President Obama talked about a balanced approach to taxes and spending? And remember how he tried to chastise Mitt Romney for refusing President Obama’s balanced approach?

BelieveinAmericaIn Mitt Romney’s book he explains why he soundly rejected President Obama’s so called balanced approach.

“Our untenable spending habits were at the root of this past summer’s crisis over the debt ceiling. President Obama’s insistence on a “balanced approach”—by which he meant a combination of spending cuts and tax increases—would have put a seal of congressional approval on a baseline level of spending significantly higher than when he took office. That is precisely why the President’s approach had to be soundly rejected. He wanted to move the country in the wrong direction of more taxes and more spending at a time when both are smothering the economy.”

Overspending is a national problem and I’m so looking forward to having Mitt Romney in the White House so we can put his mind and talents to work solving, rather than perpetuating this problem.

  1. As a long time supporter of Mitt Romney I didn’t see any place that he misrepresented, let alone outright lied about his own political positions. What are you talking about? And factually challenged? You’ll have to help me on that one also.

    And if what you say is true, then why didn’t President Obama call him on it? Isn’t that why we have debates?

  2. It’s both scary and amazing that voters would be that easy to fool. Mitt Romney has one hyped up performance in a debate where he was energized, forget that what he said was mostly distortions, misrepresentations and outright lies of his own political positions and the Presidents. Mitt presented his case well, but he was factually challenged and for the voters to ignore that is beyond credible belief, it’s scary! It makes one wonder what they read or watch or if they even understand basic issues going on in this country!
