Post-debate analysis in October gave Mitt Romney high marks for his descriptions of bipartisan work as governor and for his promises of bridging the divide created by President Obama who rarely meets with members of Congress now.
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton’s former Senate state director, Gigi Georges gave a strong endorsement of Governor Romney. Another Democrat crosses the line to run from Barack Obama. Her endorsement also carries a terse rebuke of President Obama as a failure:
“For most of my life, I’ve been an active Democrat,” said Gigi Georges. “I am proud to have worked for President Bill Clinton and then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and, during that time, I saw firsthand what can be accomplished by strong, bipartisan leadership. I know what it means to work across the aisle on issues that are important to the American people. And that’s why I am supporting Mitt Romney. Governor Romney has a plan to restore the prosperity this country deserves and expects. He will work with people of good will no matter what their party, and he will pursue the policies that are in the best interest of our country, no matter who proposes them. That’s what President Obama promised to do four years ago. But like so many of his promises, bipartisan cooperation is just another one he has broken. We can’t have four more years of failed policies and two parties that can’t work together. We need the change Mitt Romney is offering.”
