We have to quibble with Mitt Romney here. His statement implies the failed president is an intellectual.
He’s being too kind.
Mitt Romney looked to seize the offensive in his campaign against President Barack Obama Tuesday night with a hard-charging and sustained attack on the president’s leadership. Calling Obama “intellectually exhausted,” Romney charged his rival had made “wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency” and failed to live up to the promises he made as a candidate in 2008.
“Another outrageous charge just came a few hours ago in Virginia,” Romney said of Vice President Biden’s warning that Romney would put them “back in chains.”
“And the White House sinks a little bit lower,” he said.
Romney’s speech on the streets of downtown Chillicothe – the last event on his swing-state bus tour – was elaborately produced. The campaign blocked off several city blocks and hung a giant flag behind the site where Romney would emerge from his campaign bus to be greeted by throngs of supporters waving signs and flags.
And they’re turning out in droves to see Romney (via Instapundit). You know they’re worried seeing these crowds, so expect before long the sniping to begin about “how white” or “how angry” the crowds are. It’s coming, folks.
