Two weeks later, he attacked President Obama for allegedly “hiding” his second-term agenda from the American people.
Josh Lederman of The Hill has the report, which includes a subtle reference to the psychological defense mechanism from which the former Massachusetts governor appears to be suffering:
Romney projected the confidence and certainty of a presumed nominee as he railed against what he called Obama’s attempts to hide the ball from the American public.
“He does not want to share his real plans before the election, either with the public or with the press,” Romney said. “He is intent on hiding. You and I will have to do the seeking.”
In politics, this is called campaigning.
In real life it’s called hypocrisy.
In the Republican Party it’s called leadership.
