Romney Blames Obama For His Light Campaign Schedule
You see, it’s the president’s fault for not accepting federal funds in 2008 that forces Romney off the campaign trail.
Romney, who has come under fire from Republicans for not holding enough public events, told reporters that it was Obama’s decision to not use federal funds in 2008 that is forcing the Republican to spend more time behind closed-doors fundraising instead of out greeting voters.
Romney held no public events on Saturday, instead fundraising in California. He had one rally on Sunday in a Denver, Col. suburb. His campaign is launching an Ohio bus tour on Monday with vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan. Romney won’t join the bus tour until Tuesday.
“I’d far rather be spending my time out in the key swing states campaigning, door-to-door if necessary, but in rallies and various meetings, but fundraising is a part of politics when you’re opponent decides not to live by the federal spending limits,” Romney said without being asked about his campaign schedule.
This is an odd comment coming from a candidate who beat the president in fundraising every month until August.
