Four Years and Three Days ago:



http://hotlineoncall.nationaljournal.com/archives/2008/02/obama_on_romney.php

OMAHA, NE -- Barack Obama called Mitt Romney's candidacy "ineffective" on the day that the former MA governor exited the presidential race.

Romney, who dropped out of the race for president today in Washington, said in his exit speech that the GOP must unify and not allow Democrats to allow the country to "surrender to terror."

"Well my reaction to Mitt Romney's comment that's the kind of poorly thought out comment that led him to drop out," Obama said during a press avail on his campaign plane. "It's a classic attempt to appeal to people's fears that will not work in this campaign. I think that's part of the reason he was such an ineffective candidate."




Nailed it then, still valid now.

You can take the candidate out of the ineffective but you can't take the ineffective out of the candidate.

2. Thanx!!!

True then and true now. The real "terror" at that time was Bush's extremist and disastrous domestic and foreign policies!
