Romney’s bipartisanship vow: He and Ryan will ‘reach across the aisle’
Question of the Day
“Our discussion repeatedly circled back to the nation’s single most important challenge: pulling the economy out of the doldrums, getting more Americans back in the workforce in meaningful jobs with promising futures, and getting the federal government on a track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner that the country demands,” the editorial board wrote. “Which candidate could forge the compromises in Congress to achieve these goals? When the question is framed in those terms, Mitt Romney emerges the stronger candidate.”
“The best way to put it is, in Florida, I would rather be us than them,” he said, pointing out that he has not met a single person who voted for Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential race that is voting for Mr. Obama. But he has met plenty of people who voted for Mr. Obama and now are going to vote for Mr. Romney.
“People are hurting in Florida,” he said. “People have seen their houses decline in value, they lost their business, they are working twice as hard and making half as much, and they rightfully blame this president and his administration over the last four years for many of the policies that are holding our economy back.”
President Obama was campaigning Saturday in New Hampshire.
