Mitt Romney Calls For Audit Of Federal Reserve… All Eyes to the Front!
Leaving little doubt regarding his feelings on the growing influence of the Ben Bernanke led Federal Reserve, GOP candidate Mitt Romney says its time for an audit investigation into the FED: (ht/ Ulsterman..
Romney supports audit of the Federal Reserve
Borrowing Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign push, Mitt Romney said Monday he thinks the Federal Reserve should face an audit.
“Very plain and simple, the answer is yes. The Federal Reserve should be accountable. We should see what they’re doing,” Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, said at a town hall in New Hampshire.
Mr. Paul, the Texas congressman who is still technically in the running for the Republican nomination, though he does not have the delegates to win it at next week’s convention, made an audit of the Fed a chief part of his campaign.
The GOP’s platform committee begins meeting later Monday, and Mr. Paul is seeking to have a Fed audit included as an official position of the party. Gov. Bob McDonnell, the platform committee’s chairman, told The Washington Times last month that he supported accountability at the Fed, and said the committee was looking at a number of Mr. Paul’s ideas.
Wall Street Insider, over the course of numerous interviews, pointed both to the need to do battle against Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve, as well as demanding I and others maintain respect for many of the ideals represented by the Ron Paul campaign.
It certainly appears something has taken place behind the scenes to bring those ideals into the Romney campaign and the GOP platform.
That kind of “something” normally takes influence – and that kind of influence normally only comes from those with considerable resources.
ROMNEY TEAM IN THE ZONE
As the Obama campaign staff rehearse with Obama for a surprise press briefing capitalizing on the opportunity for gaining political points by reigniting the now old and tired “war on women” theme-
“Think on this though: is that the WH staff is divided on whether or not to run with this one. They are not sure some guy running for Senator is right to try and make a national campaign issue out of it and they fear the Romney team has a prepared response to create backlash. This shows a couple things. One, *Romney and Ryan are totally in the Obama team’s head.* Got them biting each other up pretty regular now. Second, they are losing confidence in how to run a national campaign big time.”
“Obama was pushed out onto the stage with some crib notes and instructions to wait for the abortion question. The question came and the president read from his notes. If you find a video of it, you will notice him looking down at those notes. I had to laugh when Obama tries to manufacture outrage when he gets to that word.”
