President Obama responded to Mitt Romney at the town hall debate, after Romney said that he and former President George W. Bush were two different people.
“The last point I want to make is this, you know, there are some things where Gov. Romney is different from George Bush,” Obama said. “You know, George Bush didn’t propose turning Medicare into a voucher.
“George Bush embraced comprehensive immigration reform. He didn’t call for ‘self-deportation.’ George Bush never suggested that we eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood. So there are differences between Gov. Romney and George Bush, but they’re not on economic policy.
“In some ways he’s gone to a more extreme place when it comes to social policy. I think that’s a mistake. That’s not how we’re going to move our economy forward.”
