Romney: Obama Exploited Financial Crisis to Promote 'Extreme Liberal Agenda'


Romney goes hard-line against Democrats, too -- sounding more like potential 2012 rival Sarah Palin than the former governor Massachusetts, who made his reputation reaching out to the opposition party in his state.

"They simply do not believe in America as it was shaped by the Founders,'' he writes. "They do not believe that the principles and values that made America a great nation still apply.''
