Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defended the DNC strategy of attacking Mitt Romney as the GOP’s presidential choice before the first primary vote is even cast.
“We’re focusing on Mitt Romney because the American voters should be afraid of the prospect of Mitt Romney becoming president of the United States,” Wasserman Schultz said.
Accusing Romney of having “no moral core, no conviction,” the Florida congresswoman said that because of all the different positions Romney has taken he “probably has trouble keeping track of where he stands on any given day.”
The DNC has stepped up its attacks on the former Massachusetts governor since his Tuesday interview with Fox News’s Bret Baier, releasing a Web video Wednesday calling the interview “disastrous” and promoting the Twitter hashtag #QuestionsMittLikes.
