"He's a true-blue fiscal conservative and he's spelled out exactly how he's going to hold down spending in Washington," Weld said as he accompanied Romney on the first of his four public stops, a visit to the Windham Junction country store.
Two years ago, Weld, who has moved out of Massachusetts, accepted the Libertarian nomination for Governor of New York.
Weld pledged to remain on the Libertarian Line and run in November even if he doesn’t get the GOP line, for which he’s fighting former Assembly Minority Leader John Faso.
He had no hesitation sounding like a Republican on either occasion.
Weld singled out Romney's pledge to veto any federal spending more than inflation, minus 1 percent. Weld also expressed affinity for New Hampshire's tax-wary residents, noting he spent childhood summers in the state and celebrated the state's motto by proclaiming, "I'm one of these people who's heart lifts when he sees a 'Live Free or Die' sign."Today, he added his name to the list of supporters of Barack Obama!
"Senator Obama is a once-in-a-lifetime candidate who will transform our politics and restore America's standing in the world," Weld said in a statement released Friday.How does a Republican repeat these Obama campaign talking points without the guarantee of a payoff? Barack has never transformed anything in his life!
"We need a president who will lead based on our common values and Senator Obama demonstrates an ability to unite and inspire.Common values? Are those the values of Acorn, Bill Ayers, Reverend Wright, Tony Rezko, or perhaps Reverend Pfleger? Being a politician seems no different today than being a Hollywood actor.
