In an interview with NBC’s Today, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney said of President Barack Obama’s Administration over the past two years: “It’s failed.” Romney will formally launch his campaign for the 2012 Presidency on Thursday.
“He’s been one of the most ineffective presidents at the job at hand that I’ve ever seen,” Romney said in the NBC interview, according to a POLITICO article. “The number one issue he faced walking in the door was an economy in fast decline. He didn’t cause it, but he made things worse.”
“If I become president, I will repeal Obamacare,” said Romney, who is expected to run into trouble on the campaign trail over healthcare reforms he passed as Massachusetts’ Governor. “My bill was 70 pages. His bill is 2,700 pages. In those extra 2,630 pages, he’s doing a lot of stuff that is just devastating to the health care (sic) system in this country. He’s wrong.”
Despite his controversial status among conservatives, Romney seems confident about his bid. “I do give myself better than 50/50 odds, but it’s up to the American people. I’ll tell them what I believe and if that works, great.”
