Cantor Not Worried About Romney’s Negative Press Abroad

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor on Friday expressed confidence in Mitt Romney amid a flurry of international headlines mocking the presumptive GOP nominee’s missteps in London this week ahead of the opening ceremonies for the Olympics.

When asked on CBS’ This Morning whether he was worried about any repercussions from the gaffes, Cantor said: “I’m really not,” adding: “Barack Obama started his campaign and had great international headlines and I think what we saw there is some of the allies have turned on him.”

Romney, who successfully managed the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, was slammed in the British press this week for suggesting that London might not be ready to host the Games.

 

Cantor also weighed in on the country’s economic outlook ahead of second-quarter GDP numbers, to be released later this morning.

“I think we’ll see disappointing anemic growth numbers,” Cantor said. “I know that unemployment has been above eight percent for 41 months. That’s unacceptable and that’s what this election is about.”

Cantor added that Romney is the right choice to get the economy back on track, saying that the Obama campaign’s attacks on the presumptive GOP nominee’s time at private equity firm Bain Capital are an attempt to distract from Obama’s economic record.
