Obviously we all understand that while Mitt Romney may not have been a perfect (or even close) candidate for President, he was worlds ahead of the man who resides in the White House today. Would our nation still be in some trouble under a Romney Presidency? It’s likely. The Senate is still Democrat, and so has the power to lock things up when they don’t get their way. However, a Romney Presidency may have meant some drastic fiscal differences and a much healthier climate for business.
A few months ago the popular culture website, Buzzfeed, did a piece entitled “Was Mitt Romney right about everything?” The premise being that so much of what Romney said would happen under another Obama term, has already come to pass. Also, many of the soundbites that Romney was ridiculed for also proved to be prescient.
Well, another one of those moments has been dug up. Ironically, it comes from the lefties over at Talking Points Memo (TPM), who thought they’d caught Romney in another flub. What they actually recorded for posterity, was the proof that Republicans had warned the nation about what a disaster a second Obama term would look like. So, thanks TPM for proving us right.
“You know that if the president is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in Congress. I mean, he’s ignored them, he’s attacked them, he’s blamed them. The debt ceiling will come up again, and shutdown and default will be threatened, chilling the economy.”
Man. That Mitt Romney almost sounds prophetic.
