This reminder is coming today from the GOP presidential campaign of Newt Gingrich:
In New Hampshire on Sunday, while picking up an important endorsement from U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Mitt Romney declared – apparently – that Republicans had been snookered by President Barack Obama. From Politico.com:
“He’s done nothing,” Romney claimed. “It is another example of failed leadership. He has not taken personal responsibility to get the supercommittee to find ways to balance the budget and cut spending.”
The Republican presidential front-runner also claimed Obama had “set a trap” by including an automatic $600 billion dollar cut in defense spending in the case the supercommittee failed to agree on a deficit reduction package.
