Video clip of Republican presidential candidate and then-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, defending President George W. Bush’s economic record in 2004, that is pertinent to this year’s election. In the clip, Romney urges voters not to blame the President for problems with the economy, saying that doing so is “poppycock.” Said Romney:
“An effort by one candidate to somehow say ‘Oh, this recession and the slowdown in jobs was the result of somehow this president magically being elected…’ people in America just dismiss that as being poppycock. And they recognize it as that.”
