Romney: Hillary’s ‘in With Karl Marx’
Posted on Jul 22, 2007
Sizing up Hillary Clinton’s economic outlook on a campaign stop Sunday, rival presidential candidate Mitt Romney took aim at Clinton’s approach, accusing her of harboring ideas more in line with “Communist Manifesto” author Karl Marx’s theories than those of capitalist champion Adam Smith.

His prime target was Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton just gave a speech the other day about her view on the economy. She said we have been an on-your-own society. She said it’s time to get rid of that and replace that with shared responsibility and we’re-in-it-together society,” Romney told the crowd. “That’s out with Adam Smith and in with Karl Marx.”
