Mitt Romney Event in Hillsborough, NH ~ full video impressive

Mitt Romney Event in Hillsborough, NH

Mitt Romney used a 19th-century stone bridge here today to anchor his attacks against President Barack Obama, calling the 2009 economic stimulus the “largest one-time careless expenditure of government money in America’s history.”

“We have behind us a Greek chorus. And I say that because they remind us that this president is leading us toward Greece, and one reason we need to get rid of [Obama] is to make sure we don’t continue [to] have the kind of deficits that lead to Greece,” Romney saod. “So I hope that they keep up with their Greek chorus over there. My guess is that when the president speaks at the Democratic convention in Charlotte this year, he will not have Greek columnsTHIS RIGHT? behind him because he won’t want to remind people of Greece.”

“This is the absolute bridge to nowhere if there ever was one,” Romney told supporters as he motioned to the stone bridge behind him. “That’s your stimulus dollars at work — a bridge that goes nowhere. And so I hope that the president comes here, and takes a look at some of the stimulus program, there’s a long list by the way.”
Known as Sawyer Bridge, the Granite State’s bridge isn’t the same “bridge to nowhere” that was repeatedly invoked during the 2008 presidential race as an example of government waste. That bridge was in Alaska.

“It is without question the largest one-time careless expenditure of government money in American history, and the bad news is it was not just wasteful spending,” Romney continued. “It is wasteful borrowing as well because we still are going to be paying on that debt for years and years and years.”
