Reporting from Concord, N.H. As Democratic and Republican leaders in Washington struggled to find agreement on spending cuts and extending the debt limit, Mitt Romney struck a conciliatory note in New Hampshire on Monday by lamenting partisan feuding while touting his record of working with Democrats -- even the Senate's onetime liberal lion Edward M. Kennedy.
Taking a pause from a fundraising tour for two campaign appearances, Romney faced questions from voters that reflected frustration with the gridlock in Washington.
During a business roundtable at a technology company in Salem, state Sen. Chuck Morse pressed Romney to explain how he would unite "a country that's very divided." Morse told the Republican front-runner: "Quite honestly, it's not working and they're not getting the message in Washington right now."
A short while later, at Lincoln Financial Group in Concord, Romney's first questioner told the former Massachusetts governor that he was troubled by how polarized the country had become.
"We're either on the extreme left or the extreme right, but in the past America has become great by compromise and going down the middle of the road," said independent voter Stephen Smith, 57. "What do you propose doing to bring America back together?"
The questions were a reminder of the competing imperatives that Republican candidates face in New Hampshire: They must win over the party's most passionate conservatives while also appealing to independent voters who can cast ballots in the first-in-the nation primary next year.....

Gee whiz, closeted Socialist Democrat Slick Willard saying he can work with Democrats. What’s next ? A declaration that the sky is blue ?
Just go away, Mitt. Please.
Fagedaboutit! Adios McRomney.
So far the only ones I have seen that I like are Palin, Trump, Cain and Bachmann...
The rest can take a flying leap...
I want a really hard edged candidate or I stay home...
In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.
“The Great Compromiser”. That ought to solidify the base.
OK, so who do we have that can beat democrats?
And it went over like a lead balloon. Now if Romney can "Leverage Democrats", he might stir up some support.
Romney is either a complete idiot or he thinks he has the primaries wrapped up and is positioning for the general. Hillary made the later mistake last time.
Certainly he can work with Democrats—HE IS ONE.
A blind man can see through Romney.
Why can’t RINO Republican leaders? Maybe they don’t want to.
LOL The McStain Mutiny, How apt.
So, he admits that he can cooperate with the National Socialist Party that is driving our country headlong into totalitarianism.....
Well, let’s have the coronation now!
Mittens and Huntsman are fighting it out for the dem crossover vote in New Hampshire.
Hasn’t he been doing that all along.
Well, if “work with Democrats” is shorthand for “drive a stake through their hearts, eat their fresh carcasses and crap them out on the Senate floor,” then I think that’s just great. Otherwise, GTH Romney.
What a panty-wearing wimpy pathetic thing to say. You don't work at all with the RATS. The evil rat party needs to be destroyed politically.
Working with the RATs means one thing -- more government.
A happy day for all conservatives will be when Mitt realizes he will NOT get the nomination.
