Asked if he believes Obama is a socialist, Romney replied, "I'd say he's a real liberal. He's not in the mainstream of the Democratic Party. I think he's more liberal than that. I don't think mainstream Democrats like Hillary Clinton, would be excited about the proposals he's made. And I think his comment about redistributing income is one which would certainly scare a lot of people. Certainly scare away a lot of jobs, hurt the creation of small businesses, which is of course, been the source of job growth in our country.Poor Mitt. He cain't help it. People in Massachusetts recognize socialism like a fish does water, ie, only in its absence.
"So, I think he's off of the left wing of the party. And after all, that's how his votes have also lined up."
