As Mitt Romney’s running mate prepared to address the Republican National Convention on Wednesday, Florida Rep. John Mica declared in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV that President Obama has become the defender of the “status quo.”
“Tonight we’ll hear from Paul Ryan. Tomorrow we’ll hear from the next president of the United States — Mitt Romney — and I’m excited about that,” said Mica from the Newsmax box overlooking the convention floor.
He said that President Obama has done little to ease the difficult economy for most Americans
“The status quo is his. It’s three-and-a-half years later. We’ve got high unemployment — stagnation,” charged Mica, who chairs the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. “I’ve been out talking to graduation classes. Millions of graduates (are) coming out of colleges now not having jobs or economic opportunity; millions of Americans having lost their homes with these cooked up plans; stimulus packages that turned to be bait and switch operations. The public is wising up.”
