QUICK TAKE: Romney Compliments Obama for Some Proposals

Mitt Romney didn’t hate President Obama’s State of the Union address.

“I have to compliment the president on adopting a whole series of ideas that I’ve been speaking about for the last several years,” Romney told NBC’s Brian Williams Tuesday night. Those include harnessing domestic energy resources and cracking down on China for its trade practices.

But Romney questioned Obama’s failure to fix the economy over the past three years, especially when Democrats had control of the House and Senate during his first two years in office. “The people in Florida that I’ve talked with… they want someone who knows how to fix things,” he said.

 

Romney delivered a preemptive rebuttal to the address early Tuesday, saying that the speech would consist of “divisive rhetoric from a desperate campaigner-in-chief.” The GOP hopeful said that if this was his first State of the Union as president, he would “have the courage to tell the American people how it is and tell Congress what we really need to do” rather than putting an excessively positive spin on the state of the country.
