Romney says he’ll balance the budget in “EIGHT TO TEN years”, slams Obama for not doing it in FOUR



Here’s something you may have missed during last night’s debate. Although the debate was supposed to be about foreign policy, it often veered back to domestic policy and the economy. During one of those veers, Mitt Romney said this:

Come on our website. You look at how we get to a balanced budget within eight to 10 years. We do it by getting — by reducing spending in a whole series of programs.

Eight to ten years.

But wait. He also said this in the same goddam debate:

The president hasn’t balanced a budget yet.

So, let me get this straight, Governor. You say you can’t balance the budget in less than eight years but you’re criticizing the President for not doing it in less than four? The level of hypocrisy displayed with this is almost breathtaking.

Really, Governor Romney, we’re not as stupid as you think we are.
