Romney, McDonnell call into Bolling's radio show

Anita Kumar

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."

I would venture to say the economy and employment would be in considerably better shape right now if Romney were president instead of Obama.

I am certian Romney would've prioritized the Nation's problems and concentrated on solving those most pressing. As an experienced mangager who has returned many failing enterprises to success, he no-doubt has the skills needed to be President in these challenging times. Obama simply had no executive experience and has been unable to focus and accomplish anything.

The country (and the World) is paying the price for American voters putting a novice in charge of the largest organization in the World.
