Romney, McDonnell call into Bolling's radio show
Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling played radio host this morning on WRVA in Richmond and welcomed fellow Republicans, possible presidential hopeful Mitt Romney and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, onto the program.
Romney, former Massachusetts governor and a 2008 presidential candidate, talked about the man currently occupying the White House.
"I don't think an unbiased observer would give Obama a passing grade in his first year,'' Romney said. "It was a lost year unfortunately. The first rule of any kind of a turnaround is to focus your efforts and unfortunately instead of focusing his efforts on the economy and creating jobs the president used his political capital and his energy to go and sell a healthcare plan and the more he sold it the less attractive it was and the American people ultimately rejected that plan and, as a result, we really lost a year."
Bolling served as chairman of Romney's presidential campaign in Virginia. Romney campaigned for Bolling as well as McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
Romney, as you would imagine, declined to say whether he would run for president again.
"That's something Ann and I going to be thinking about probably sometime after the November election,'' he said. "Right now our priority is to get some governors, senators, congressmen and women elected and see if we can't bring some balance back to Washington."
Bolling filled in for the vacationing Jimmy Barrett from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m.
"I've noticed the weather's improved dramatically since you've been reporting the weather,'' McDonnell quipped. "Good job."
