Romney Says Obama’s ‘Lack of Focus’ Led to Failure on Economy

Feb. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a potential 2012 Republican presidential candidate, said President Barack Obama focused on overhauling the U.S. health care system to the detriment of the economy.

Addressing the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington yesterday, Romney denounced the Democratic president’s $862 billion stimulus program enacted one year ago.

Obama didn’t know that “the number one cause of failure in the private sector is lack of focus, and that the first rule of turning around any troubled enterprise is focus, focus, focus,” Romney told the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington yesterday. “His energy should have been focused on fixing the economy and creating jobs. He failed to focus, and so he failed.”

If this is their best hope for 2012, well, this country is screwed. The lack of focus comes from the last administration. Apparently people forgot that the Dems were elected in 2006 because the economy was starting to really go south when the republicans screwed everything up. Romney can blame health care all he wants, I'd rather blame the Iraq war for the reason we're in this mess.

So where is he wrong ?

Like people keep blaming Bush for taking his eye off the ball ( Bin Laden) Obama has done the same thing with the economy. He was more interested in bailing out his union buddies , and trying to cram thru a health care bill that no one wants, than create jobs, and get the economy going again.

He failed completely in regards to the economy. He never intended to fix it, he would rather pass blame , than take any himself. He points fingers at the wrong people for the mess this economy is in.

If you remember the economy didn't start tanking till the Dems arrived in 06, My personal feelings is they tanked it on purpose. The Dems were loosing on all fronts, the only possible thing they could run on is if the economy tanked. SUPRISE ! 06 came the Dems came , the economy tanked. Put blame where it belongs.

you need look no furhter than Dodd, Frank, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Geitner, Burnanke, ACORN, Fanny, Freddy. that's who desrves the blame.

So the Dems tanked the economy on purpose to get elected and Obama only wanted to bail out his union buddies? It'd be easier for Obama to create jobs so his union buddies would be happy but that just makes to much sense. Frankly, it wasn't Obama's fault that health care took so long, it was Max Baucus. Obama's problem was he just wasn't as tough with his own party when he needed to be.

I'll play this game as well based on your logic! It's just like the Republicans who are only good during wartime so they go to war! Then if you question their policies then you're anti-American! Hell, one could even speculate that Bush let 9-11 happen because before the attack his approval ratings were bad and the only thing going on at the time before the attacks was the big debate about stem cell research that he didn't fund. Then miracuously Bush's approval ratings were through the roof and the GOP took control over the government. When a persons argument is only based only on speculation, it's pretty poor logic.

Bloodstone, you and I will probably never agree when it comes to politics!

Agreed ! see we agree on something ... :mrgreen:

using you're logic, In order for you to believe what you are saying you would have to believe President Bush has no problem killing 3000 Americans for a poll jump. 🙄 cmon, I don't think you even beleive that.

Tanking the economy is right out of the Alinsky playbook, the progressives have been trying to do it for decades, that's why they hate capatalism. Well now you have many progressives in Obamas' administration. what do you think is happening? Everything this administration has done or is doing is the complete opposite way to jump start an economy.

Heatlh care was just a diversion so you didn't see the war he was waging on the economy.

Nope, I don't believe it, so no worries! I was using that as an example to see if you'd budge on your position. That's why I used the argument about Bush/9-11 and wartime Republicans. Obama does not have as many progressives in his administration as you think. Do you really think Rahm Emanuel is progressive? Howard Dean is the reason Obama and the Dems picked up as many seats as they did.

That's what's wrong with politics, the dems did not purposely tank the economy to win Senate seats. Voters were fed up with Republicans, so they got their butts kicked in the last two elections. Now they brand themselves as a 'new party,' who will run things differently. 🙄 Like Kieth Olbermann said, "a new party run by the same damn people."

hmmm, I was pretty sure it had to do with the lefties bashing our President for 8 years straight.

Then when all else failed they needed to run on something, tanking the economy fit pretty well. If you remember McCain was even till he postponed his campaign to help with the stimulus bill. after that it was all down hill.

Now mind you many Republicans would not vote for McCain, because he is not a true conservative. That's what the country wants . Obama ran very middle of the road, then veered hard left when he won.

Nobody said Romney was the best hope in 2008 or 2012, but Romney it right about Obama. The democrats definatly ran us into a ditch every effort they had to crucify Bush. And the Democrats own all their last year with Obama, failing in a stimulus package, and a farce of a health care program. They are now cancelling major military programs, announced to the ememy when we will with drawn, and have made many major foriegn policy blunders with Russia and Iran.

I don't know much about american politics..or canadian politics..so I should probably stay out of this left punch ,right punch, kind of battle,and hope that something that can come out straight through the middle...clear, and honest, as well as really seeking to serve "the people",would hopefully some day emerge.

If I was an American, I'd be voting for someone like RonPaul..really like how he explains things....what I've seen...and I think hes right when he says the first thing that needs to be dismantled in the US..is the CIA!!

(sighs) 😕 😯 I know that won't be kindly taken by some of you, but
thats how I see it as well....I like Ron Paul..like a smart grandfather,or father...who seems to have insight into some deeper issues,that really affect all north americans.

anyhow 😕 nuff said from the canadian 🙄 Embarassed sorry..had to say it 😀

Ron Paul appealed to many people, but ran as a republican and hardly won any delegates. I'm still not clear if he switched to an independant or just refused to conceed as a republican. The 2 most major people to emerge outside Democrats and Republicans in recient history have been Ralph Nadar and Ross Perot. It is really a shame we do not have a 3rd party that is as big and has the clout of the Dems and reps. Kind of like a lower, middle, and upper class structure, when you loose the middle class we will collapse. I would think have a 3 party system could serve the same purpose. Intead of 2 parties outnumbering each other or just conflicting, a 3rd equal party could allow us to get some real work done running the country. I think we are proving that a completly Democratic White House and Congress is failing, and in th process have done things like locked the Republicans out of the process, which sounds like Dictatorship. they have the numbers to just tell them stay at home, we can do it without you. Very Dangerous behavior for a Democracy. The Repulbilcan States are being denied representation. thats why our Congress is defined the way it is.

Greeney, a 3rd party in this country is needed at least all of us can agree on that. But to say the Dems are running this country like a dictartorship, may be fair, it's also the same as when the Republicans were in control under Dubya. When both parties are in power, they both run the country as a dictatorship. Ron Paul is a Republican that I like so it'd be something if he switched to an Independent.

Both sides can agree on one thing as you said, when the middle class dissapears, we're going to collapse. Looks to me that trickle down economics didn't work or ever has. The country is built from the bottom up, not the other way around. When the rich get the money, no way were they ever going to give it to give to people that are 'less than them.' That's the ultimate goal of capitalism isn't it, get enough money so you can retire and do what you want right?
