Skip to comments.Mitt Romney: Obama 'is learning on the fly'
Posted on 03/20/2009 10:00:48 AM PDT by GOP_Lady
Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008, but John McCain snagged the nomination. This businessman and politician is keeping a critical eye on how things are shaping up in the presidency he wanted, and he shared his views on Thursday night's "Larry King Live." He gave a sharp critique of President Obama's performance and shared his thoughts on Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin and stem-cell research. The following transcript is edited for brevity and clarity:

“learning on the fly?”
Bill Clinton must be tutoring him ;o)
Saying that O is “learning on the fly” is a polite way of saying it.
The only choices I can see are “learning on the fly” [as in ignorant] or purely [Saul Alinsky trained], [Soros planned] evil.
learning on the fly?......
Leaning on the Constitution!
You don't have a government take punitive action against a small group of people. Frankly, it's unconstitutional, in my view.
Or as the fliers used to say, “seat of the pants flying.”
What’s his fly got to do wit da constitooshun?
Why does Mitt make the completely unsupported assumption that he is learning?
Compare Romney to that classless twit in the WH, no comparison.
Oh, wingin’ it!
Hmmmm. Where does he see evidence Obama is, “learning?”
This is not the time for a president who is on the job training. Obozo and the democratically controlled Congress are a disaster, far worse than when it was under republican control! I actually long for those days again!
What evidence do we have that he’s learning? Smirky’s too busy running around seeking adulation. All of Clinton’s needy narcissism without the charm.
Didn’t know Romney’s wife has MS...
For some reason, the words “Yoicks! And away!” [BONK!] come to mind.
Yes, Ann has MS. My younger sister has it as well.
That was a childish & mean spirited attack - grow up!
This is a president who is learning on the fly.
He certainly is.
He and his handlers are hurriedly and clumsily trying to correct our (The Constitution is fundamentally flawed ) nation.
The AIG bonus language was buried in the fine print of legislation.
That is likely the tip of alarming new laws that will surface in time out of legislation that our Congressmen did not have time to read before enacting.
The current emotional kneejerk by Congress to punish the recipients of the bonuses attempts to do damage to at least 3 separate contracts:
1. The contract between AIG and the employees who did whatever they did for the bonus.
2. Any agreement reached between AIG and the government officials that put the deal together.
3. The bail out the Congressmen put into law in the performance of their employment contract with their constituents.
I don’t see a lot of learning going on.
The “Magic Negro” is indeed on the fly, but he ain’t learning anything.
“Magic Negro” Registered Trademark, LA Times
It is, in fact, very close to a bill of attainder.
Flip Romney—the media’s favorite Republican. Yawn.
I really liked Romney in the debates. But he was out of contention by the time my state voted. So was Guiliani, my second choice.
I worked for McCain, and voted for McCain, and gave $$ to McCain, but Romney and Guiliani I really thought were better all-around candidates.
Oh, I don't know. Both, when elected, run to the left...
Mitt, and others, warned us earlier about Obama's inexperience. Nobody cared. Mitt expressed it well, again, last night:
This is a president who is learning on the fly. He's never turned anything around before. He hasn't had the experience of leading a nation or a business or a state in trouble. And the first rule I can tell him is focus, focus, focus. Focus on the job at hand, getting this economy going, and making sure there are no errors, no mistakes, no excessive spending. It's too risky, given the fact that the economy is hanging by a thread....
....But I can say in my view, Barack Obama is ripe for criticism. This AIG mess is certainly at his doorstep. The fact that he's not spending his time focusing on managing the economy, but is instead in Hollywood tonight and working on cap and trade and health care and other issues, diverting from the issue at hand, I think is certainly fair game to be discussed.
No, thats still McVain who brings his fat bimbo daughter along for the ride.
Romney looks like Reagan compared to the twits in the Congress who vote for Zero's 2009 budget. Despicable.
You are exactly correct.
??..Thats like saying that since both Clinton and Reagan were left handed, whats the difference?..Obama is a commie nitwit and Romney at least knows who the base of the Republican Party is, for Cripes sake.No comparison.
The thing Romney has going for him is he's been outside of it , and he is an experienced politician with good ties to the base. Take it or leave it, we're in sorry shape right now.
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. "Outside of it." Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
So Romney was IN IT, just like socialized medicine, BIGdig coverup, ....
Up yours, Snidely. Im just stating the facts, keep the name calling to yourself. You voted for Bush the compassionate socialist the last two times, so you ought to snake away somewhere and lick your wounds.
Whats his fly got to do wit da constitooshun?
Sorry, he’s not leaning on the constitution, he’s peeing on it!
Right...yeah, those 2 comparisons are the same thing.
That’s the best I’ve ever heard it said. 0 has all the needy narcisissm of Bill Clinto with none of the charm (even as I suffer to use Clinton and charm in the same sentence when so very many better nouns exist.
That is stupendously classess. Are you trying to match 0bummer?
Those of you who opposed Romney bear a lot of the responsibility for the situation we are now in with Obama.
Although my candidate was Tancredo, I also realized that unfortuantely he had little chance - MSM simply would not allow it.
Hillary Clinton wants to run the largest enterprise in the world. She hasnt run a corner store. She hasnt run a state. She hasnt run a city, Romney says in the spot. She has never run anything. And the idea that she could learn to be President as an internship just doesnt make any sense.
I wonder how long till the rest of America realizes that Emperor Obama has no clothes
Romney is like a Department Manager who learns his division is going to be eliminated. So he applies for CEO of another company before his current place of employment fires him.
At the job interview, Romney inflates his resume and over exaggerates about his accomplishments. The Human Resource lady listening to him, rolls her eyes and thinks to herself, Does this guy believe half the things he says? A few weeks later, Romney receives the rejection letter. He then screams anti-Mormon bias.
