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.....

Yes, and he can be used by Democrats as well. I wonder if this bozo thinks that somehow this will win votes?
Bi-partisanship is a crock. FUBO.
mccain and lieberman doing “bipartisanship”,
while looking like they’re married.
Of course he can. He has more in common with them than with conservatives or even Republicrats.
Like by signing RomneyCare with its individual mandate.
This is why the MSM calls him the LEADER.
No thank you...I have seen enough remakes of The McStain Mutiny.
But can he work with Republicans? (who aren’t RINOs)
I’m sick of this POS already. pander pander pander
Then the b*tthole can simply become a dim bulb crat.
RINOmny, just go away.
Romney is the PROVEN backstabber.
He should be saying how he will smash their faces in and stomp their guts out.
Romney is the best Democrat runnning for President in this election cycle. How much funding is the DNC providing to run his campaign?
Has anyone seen anything like this since, oh let's say 1964?
Remember Bush ‘41 had a deal with the Democrats over taxes as did Regan. How long did those deals last?
Romney has just disqualified himself as a serious candidate for President. The reason for this disqualification is he has no real-world operational assessment of how the Democrats are going to behave when he becomes President.
“We, the People” have been down that path too many times to believe that the Democrats currently in power are going to change, ever. Our candidate for President must reflect the same reality!
Because he’s a democrat, as well.
“Romney says he can work with Democrats”
Um, yeah....that’s part of the problem Mitt. We don’t need another Republican President that can work with the enemy, we need one that can destroy them as a viable political machine. Mitt, it just ain’t in ya.
