Hot Air interview with Mitt Romney

posted at 2:35 pm on May 16, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Earlier today, I had an opportunity to speak with Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney about the campaign and the economy, as well as Romney’s official endorsement of Connie Mack in the Republican primary for the US Senate race in Florida.  Governor Romney is traveling in Florida today, and while he and Mack have often appeared together, Romney’s official endorsement came today.  I got the first opportunity to ask him about it, and Romney cited Mack’s fiscal conservatism and leadership in the Republican Party as the reasons why he makes the best candidate to go toe to toe with incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson for the Senate seat in November.

We also talked quite a bit about the economy and spending, the two big themes for Romney this week on the campaign trail, but the talk turned more to debt.  We spoke about the unfolding crisis in Europe, especially Greece, which Romney said was a warning signal to America and its political leadership.  Romney is “very concerned” about Europe, and it underscores the need for a balanced budget, which he pledged to pursue as President.

Romney also scolded the Obama campaign for its attacks on his term at Bain Capital, especially when Obama showed up that very night to a fundraising event hosted by Tony James of Blackstone, another private-equity firm.  Romney tells me that Bain and Blackstone occasionally invested in tandem, and that he has respect for their work, because it’s the same work he did at Bain.  I asked about the JP Morgan loss, and the impact of Dodd-Frank, which Romney agrees did nothing to end the Too Big To Fail problem. Be sure to watch it all.

Romney sounds too intelligent to be running for president. No wonder Obama’s people keep avoiding talk about economic issues.

We’ve had a hit piece in the WaPo.

We’ve had the attack on venture capitalists.

I’m wondering just in the grand scheme of things Obama will start the smear campaign because Romney is a MORMON!

I would not be surprised at all to learn that someone with too much time on their hands and a bit too nosy has been compiling a dossier on AP and/or a profile to try and figure out exactly who he is.

Meanwhile, no doubt AP sits back with a chuckle. The anonymity is half the fun. :)

Maybe if it was a typed interview, that would be a little weird though. I don’t think Ed even knows who he is. I always imagined AP’s paycheck is sent to him in an envelope taped to the underside of a park bench. Mystery man.

So far so good. The curious thing about Romney is he seemed to be running a general election campaign in the primary and now seems to be running a more aggressive primary style campaign moving on to the general. He says the right things (mostly). Let’s hope he delivers so we don’t have to primary him in ’16.

Ah, the sweet, sweet flavor of talk on the dissolution of Medicaid.

On the other hand, Romney weighing in on tax hikes in Greece is troubling.

Naw, mate, Ed did well. He’s one of our own and, when he gets follow-ups from this interview, he’ll press the questions.

By the way, I have ringside tickets for the next Hewitt-Caddell cage death match I can let you have really, really cheap.

You interested?

The War Planner on May 16, 2012 at 3:30 PM

I’ll be frank with you: This is the first time I have ever heard Mitt Romney’s voice. Seriously!

I don’t watch TV, don’t listen to radio, and intentionally avoid situations where I will hear things I don’t consciously choose to hear. I similarly have only heard brief seconds of Obama’s voice since October 2008. The instant O’s voice is broadcast somewhere without my consent, I either turn off the volume (if the device is under my control), or literally plug my ears or exit the room ASAP.

Anyway, Romney’s got more of an accent than I expected. Ed sounds like a hyper-informed policy wonk with top-tier radio skills — a rare combination!

Zombie on May 16, 2012 at 3:30 PM

It’s nice that Ed doesn’t have to worry about getting a haircut if he asked the wrong questions.

CorporatePiggy on May 16, 2012 at 3:31 PM

Romney stepped in it, endorsing Connie Mack. George Lemieux is the better candidate and he just might win the primary. Mack is a train-wreck waiting to happen. Romney should have either stayed out of this or done his homework. He did neither so, in cases like this he may not be much better than Obama.

bflat879 on May 16, 2012 at 3:32 PM

Ed, what, no questions about the things that really, really matter — Seamus abuse, teenage homo-haircutting, steel plant shutdowns, unaccomplished wife, car elevators, his religious “cult”, etc.?

You just may be at risk of losing your press pass and, worse, your invitation to the White House Correspondents Dinner. /

Ed Morrissey… SCORE!!!

Mazel Tov!!

JohnGalt23 on May 16, 2012 at 3:34 PM

I’m in the Lemieux camp. Mack just screams politician to me, I don’t care for him one bit. First of all, the family business is politics. Theres your first problem. Second, he’s married to a California Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack. Either they don’t live together, they both live in Washington, or one of them doesn’t live in their district. I don’t like any of those scenarios. Mack just seems a bit slimy, personally, and an establishment hack to boot. Lemieux comes across as honest, and I tend to like his demeanor.

A big challenge for Romney is the unavoidable fact that the federal government has grown so big, that making the massive cuts required is going to throw a lot of people out of work… and increase unemployment. I don’t see any way around this. To get the government off our backs, Romney is going to have to fire a lot of people, and the protests are going to be ugly.

cane_loader on May 16, 2012 at 3:58 PM

Happy Nomad on May 16, 2012 at 2:53 PM

And this one worries me. Not because of Romney, but because his fellow members will be all over the blogs calling names and offending everyone who asks a simple question or challenges a doctrine or claim. Hopefully, the faithful will stay out of the weeds and let Ann take care of it. “This is what gives me joy and spiritual guidance and it harms no one nor does it advocate harm.” Say that and then let it go.

I’m wondering though if Obama for once understands that if he makes religion a pi**ing contest, he’s got the good Reverend Wright and Black Liberation Theology. Even I, who knows a lot about both theologies, think this would be a wash. David Axelrod has to know that also because they’ve tried and it didn’t take.

aunursa on May 16, 2012 at 2:40 PM

Capt. Ed has always been able to score some good interviews the past few years on TEMS. He’s got some pull out there :)

Just sayin’ here, a bit OT, but there is a far different “aura” if you will, around Romney as the GOP’s nominee than there was for McCain 4 years ago after he clinched. It’s more subdued now…and although there’s always going to be some criticism, there is very little anti-Mitt stuff floating around in the comments. With McCain, he was getting the brunt of the attacks on him from conservatives more than from Democrats. And that was during the general election.

McCain lost, arguably for a few reasons, but it’s always been my take that unless we can rally around our candidate and get him (or her) cross that finish line, we can’t win…and that was instrumental in affecting McCain’s support. When your own cheerleaders turn on you, it’s trouble.

Romney may not be perfect, but The One is horrible…another four years of this crudola and America get’s flushed further down the drain.

JetBoy on May 16, 2012 at 4:11 PM

..and increase unemployment. I don’t see any way around this. To get the government off our backs, Romney is going to have to fire a lot of people, and the protests are going to be ugly.

cane_loader on May 16, 2012 at 3:58 PM

..I seem to remember (1) Reagan telling the unionized ATC folks to take a hike and (2) the unemployment rate being in the 7s before he waltzed to re-election in ’84. If the economy is going full steam and cranking up jobs, then gummint employee demonstrations will be a big nothing burger.

Besides, will you blow a box of Kleenex over the prospect of those fat-asssed pension-suckers walking the bricks? I sure as hell will not.

The War Planner on May 16, 2012 at 4:12 PM

Oh yes. And congratulations on the interview! I’m encouraged that Romney appears to be reaching out to those who were ready to quit the field entirely after the primary. Good job for you and good job for Romney.

Kataklysmic on May 16, 2012 at 3:15 PM

So far so good. Was a little wobbly in the beginning, but it seems he has a decent staff and maybe he has been paying attention the last few years. Also being the adult of the two helps a lot.

The nice thing about having bad or no expectations of Romney is that there’s lots of room to be pleasantly surprised.

The other nice thing is that he doesn’t have to go hard negative, but just keep on track with the issues and he should be fine. Now what he will do about those issues is another story, but one thing at a time.

kim roy on May 16, 2012 at 4:29 PM

cane_loader on May 16, 2012 at 3:58 PM

Valid concerns. Government must be cut. Perhaps an all around 5-20% pay cut, or a reduction in hours per employee, or reductions in benefits with hiring freezes would be a way to ease the transition. We have had the current 40 hour work week for a long time. It may not be the best model any more. Perhaps we should be going to reduced work weeks and shared schedules with pro-rated benefits.

JetBoy on May 16, 2012 at 4:11 PM

I agree, JB. We need to do whatever it takes to help Romney push that Marxist nightmare Obama out of the White House. Although Romney was not my first choice, so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised by him. He’s smart and he works hard and he’s not afraid to take it to Obama (unlike McCain). After that last round of primaries when some interviewer asked Romney what he’d like to say to Obama and Romney replied “start packing,” I laughed out loud because it was exactly what I was thinking too. I think I may have underestimated Romney.

AZCoyote on May 16, 2012 at 5:18 PM
