Just folks: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and wife Ann greet people during a campaign stop at Charlie Parker’s Diner in Springfield, Ill., on Monday.
Maybe he should hold this kind of optimistic talk until after the election, but on Monday, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said he thinks things are looking up for our recession-ravaged economy. Just not as much as they would have been had he been in charge over these last three years. —KA
Los Angeles Times:
“I believe the economy’s coming back, by the way,” he said on Monday. “We’ll see what happens. It’s had ups and downs. I think it’s finally coming back. The economy always comes back after recession, of course. There’s never been one that we didn’t recover from.”
But Romney continued: “The problem is this one has been deeper than it needed to be and a slower recovery than it should have been by virtue of the policies of this president. Almost everything he’s done has made it harder for this economy to recover and that’s from Obamacare to a failed stimulus to massive deficits to Dodd-Frank. The list goes on and on.”
