Mitt vs. Hillary
“It would be helpful to have a person leading the country who understands how the economy works and has actually managed something,” the former Massachusetts governor told reporters after a Republican fundraiser in Nashua, N.H. “In the case of the three Democratic front-runners, not one of them has managed even a corner store, let alone a state or a city.”
Mr. Romney, who leads Republicans in New Hampshire, has focused his criticism in recent weeks on Mrs. Clinton, Sen. Barack Obama and former Sen.John Edwards rather than rival Republicans, the Associated Press reports. It’s a strategy he hopes will help him maintain his lead over Sen. John McCain and former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani.
“I wanted to focus on the Democrats,” he said. “By and large, the best way to further my interest is to let people know what I would do and to distinguish that from what the Democrats would do.”
“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,” Mr. Romney told the crowd. “That’s out with Adam Smith and in withKarl Marx.”
No stopping them
Charleston, S.C., the scene of tonight’s debate between Democratic presidential candidates, will also be the scene of the latest protest against Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton by the folks at StopHerNow.com.
A plane chartered by the anti-Clinton Web site will fly over downtown Charleston this afternoon flying the “Stop Her Now” banner, said Dick Collins, founder of the site.
“We want Senator Clinton to know that wherever she goes, we will be there exposing her liberal ideology and hopefully crack a few smiles along the way,” Mr. Collins said.
StopHerNow.com previously flew its slogan over Dallas, when Mrs. Clinton visited that city for a June 15 fundraiser. In addition to the aerial stunt, Mr. Collins said his group has also responded to the request that questions be submitted for the debate via online videos at YouTube.com, posing questions about the Fairness Doctrine, illegal immigration, and health care.
“Senator Clinton’s liberal voting record on the immigration bill, her statements on government-controlled speech and government-sponsored health care in America are just a few issues we hope to expose in the next debate,” Mr. Collins said.
“We have become the most interactive presidential education Web site on the Internet,” he added.
“Law-abiding Americans and legal immigrants are sick of the revolving door that allows convicted criminal aliens to be set free to wreak havoc and violence across the country,” syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin says in an online video ad for a new site, DeportThemNow.com.
