Romney's 'Worst Fears' About Obama Came True

In a new introduction to his book, "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness," former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) says that his worst fears about Pres. Obama have come true and suggests that both Obama and Vice Pres. Biden are guilty of worsening the economic downturn.

"I wrote this book in the months immediately after Pres. Obama's Inauguration," Romney writes. "Since then, my worst fears about the President have come true. Rather than focusing his energy and political capital on solving the economic crisis, he exploited it to promote his extreme liberal agenda. The economy will of course right itself -- every recession inevitably comes to an end. He and Vice President Biden will undoubtedly take credit, but they in fact have made the downturn deeper and longer."

Romney is making multiple television appearances today to coincide with the paperback release of his book, stopping by "Good Morning America" earlier today, where he defended the Massachusetts health care law he helped craft as governor that featured an individual mandate. The law could prove to be one of Romney's biggest liabilities with conservative voters should he launch a White House run, which looks like a near certainty.

Romney will appear on "Piers Morgan Tonight" and "The Late Show With David Letterman" later Tuesday.
