Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said the Gulf oil spill has proven President Barack Obama “is totally out of his depth in dealing with a crisis.”
Romney, once and probably future candidate for president, spoke to fellow Republicans in his keynote speech at their Washington state convention.
He told them Obama should have brought in experts from BP, other oil companies and universities, listened to their ideas and chosen the best solution.
“He hasn’t even met with the chief executive of BP. How can that be?” Romney said. “Instead he’s trying to figure out who to blame. We don’t want a politician trying to find blame, we want a leader who will get things done for America.”
