Romney Confronts His Own Criticisms of McCain
By Michael D. Shear
PHOENIX -- Is Mitt Romney ready to debate Joe Biden? That was the question posed to the possible McCain running mate by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer.
Biden, Romney said, is an "impenetrable thicket of words. I don't know if anyone is ready to debate him."
Blitzer then showed a series of clips from a Republican primary debate, where Romney listed a litany of things that were wrong with McCain, including: that McCain is "outside the mainstream of Republican thought," was a driving force behind the McCain-Feingold
campaign finance bill and the McCain-Kennedy immigration bill.
And, he said, if you're endorsed by the New York Times (as McCain was) you're not a real Republican.
What does Romney say now?
"That just points out that John McCain is his own man," he said.
