Romney Slams Hillary as Marxist

I'm a Fred man...but I like a lot of what I am hearning from Mitt Romney lately--especially this:
"Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney took aim at Democratic rivals on Sunday, calling them all unprepared to lead the country and comparing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's economic plan to that of Socialist Karl Marx. "It would be helpful to have a person leading the country who understands how the economy works and has actually managed something," the former Massachusetts governor told reporters after a Republican fundraiser. "In the case of the three Democratic front-runners, not one of them has managed even a corner store, let alone a state or a city." Romney targeted a recent economic policy speech by Clinton for special criticism. Clinton said "we have been an on-your-own society. She said it's time to get rid of that and replace that with shared responsibility and we're-in-it-together society. That's out with Adam Smith and in with Karl Marx."
Republicans have seemed far to reluctant to take off the gloves and to expose the unrelenting calls for Socialism for what they are. Good for Romney for having the chutzpah for calling this exaclty what it is. He is a very intelligent man and he has turned around some really bad situations. If he doesn't win, he would make a hell of a VP choice for Fred Thompson--an ideas man with practical experience in "making it happen."
