Readers keep quoting me one line from the Romney-Doocy interview this morning, here’s what he said, plus the video:
Fox News’ Steve Doocy: “Governor, what do you make of the letter that Bob Dole wrote to Rush Limbaugh that says, ‘Lay off of John McCain he is conservative enough?’ Do you buy that from Bob?”
Governor Romney: “Well, it’s probably the last person I would have wanted to have write a letter for me. I think there are a lot of folks who tend to think that maybe John McCain’s race is a bit like Bob Dole’s race. That it’s the guy who’s the next in line. He’s the inevitable choice and we’ll give it to him and then it won’t work.
“I think that the right course for a winning campaign against someone like Barack Obama is going to have to be somebody who can speak with energy and passion about the future of America, not another Senator who can say, ‘Well here is what I did on bill H-1234. Here is what I did on my committee assignment.’ The American people are so tired of listening to Senators talk about their bills and their committees. They want to know how somebody has accomplished something for the people of their state or their city, somebody who has built a business, who ran the Olympics. They want somebody who has been in the real economy to fix our national economy.”
