Romney: Obama Administration Giving ‘Billions’ to Obama Donors’ Businesses

The Romney campaign, perhaps with an eye to pushing the media narrative away from Bain Capital, is focusing this week on the Obama donors who have benefited from his administration.

“There is no question but that when billions upon billions of dollars are given by the Obama administration to the businesses of campaign contributors, that is a real problem particularly at a time when the middle class is really suffering in this country,” Mitt Romney charged this morning on Fox and Friends.

“This is a tough time for the people of America,” Romney added. “But if you are a campaign contributor to Barack Obama, your business may stand to get billions of dollars or hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from the government. I think it’s wrong. I think it stinks to high heaven and I think the administration has to explain how it is they would consider giving money to campaign contributors’ businesses.”  

The campaign also released a web video on the theme: ‘Political Payoffs and Middle Class Layoffs.’ Watch:
