Romney Delivers Red Meat Rhetoric To CPAC Crowd

Instead Romney stuck to the guaranteed applause lines, mocking liberals, President Obama's overtures to the business world, "European solutions,'' and organic food. He offered a sweeping indictment of liberal policies on education, government welfare and the economy. "Liberals should be ashamed that they and their policies have failed these good and decent Americans!'' he said. Romney also stuck to another surefire crowd pleaser: touting American exceptionalism. "I will not and I will never apologize for America!'' he said. Romney's presidential bid is widely viewed as a certainty, and his wife, Ann Romney didn't play coy when she introduced him. "'I for one would like to see him lead the country as president of the United States,'' she said.
