Romney Goes Out In Public. Will He See Shadow And Disappear?
Governor Romney’s strategy to date has been to minimize television appearances and wait for those around him to implode. It worked great until the emergence of Newt Gingrich atop the polls. Now Romney is making appearances, and we can see why he was laying low. He told the Washington Examiner that he exaggerated the virtues of his health care accomplishments (h/t Steve Benen):
BYRON YORK: Governor, on health care, you’ve often said that the health care plan that you’ve created in Massachusetts would be a good model for some other states. You said, “Maybe not every state, but most.”
ROMNEY: I don’t think I said “most,” but —
YORK: On “Meet the Press” in 2007.
ROMNEY: Oh did I? Did I make that exaggeration? [Laughs].
YORK: So, what are some of the states that today would benefit by adopting the system that you created in Massachusetts?
ROMNEY: In its entirety? Not very many.
Given Gingrich’s propensity to say very stupid things, maybe Romney should return to his old strategy.
