Debate number 2 of 3. Lots of dumb things said, but this one’s quick and easy. Romney says:
I ran the Olympics and balanced the budget.
Good job, Mitt. Remind me, how did you manage such an impressive feat?
Oh right, with “enormous spending and services of the federal government.” (Romney’s words.) More specifically, “with $342 million in direct federal funding and an additional $1.1 billion in indirect financing from Washington.” (Huffington Post and CNN’s words.)
So what’s the plan when the budget you’re trying to bail out is the federal government’s?
