Mitt Romney was on Meet the Press today. David Gregory asked him several questions that he did not answer, directly or indirectly. Finally Gregory asked, “Will you balance the budget in your first term; is that a commitment you can make?” Romney replied, “I’ll balance the budget by the end of my second term. Doing it in the first term would cause, I believe, a dramatic impact on the economy. Too dramatic, and therefore, the steps I put in place, we put together a plan that lays out we can get to a balanced budget within 8 to 10 years.”
I wish he’d lay it on the line and tell us how he intends to do what he says he can.
