Romney: Obama Should Have Been A Governor First
Does Mitt Romney think only governors should become presidents?
Speaking in a county that Obama narrowly won in 2008, Romney tried to pair his criticism of the president with some backhanded compliments, telling his audience here that Obama is an “eloquent speaker.”
But in noting Obama’s lack of legislative experience before winning the White House, Romney suggested the president might have been more successful if he’d started “perhaps at a lower level.”
“Governor may have been a better job for him to have started with,” Romney suggested.
