President 2012: Mitt Romney FINALLY Weighs Into Debt Ceiling Deal

Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney talks with reporters in Allentown, PA, June 2011

At least he didn’t flip-flop. Mitt simply waited everyone out.

Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today issued the following statement on the deal to raise the debt ceiling:

“As president, my plan would have produced a budget that was cut, capped and balanced – not one that opens the door to higher taxes and puts defense cuts on the table. President Obama’s leadership failure has pushed the economy to the brink at the eleventh hour and 59th minute. While I appreciate the extraordinarily difficult situation President Obama’s lack of leadership has placed Republican Members of Congress in, I personally cannot support this deal.”

Better late than never, I suppose…..
