Romney continues to boldly look backward, according to ThinkProgress:
With the constant stream of Wall Street donations flowing into his campaign coffers, it was only a matter of time before GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney called to repeal Wall Street’s number one enemy — the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law. Though Congress enacted the law to provide vital consumer protections and to prevent Wall Street from spurring another financial crisis, Republicans have continually attempted to cripple the law piecemeal, either by attacking the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau or weakening derivatives regulation. But Romney decided yesterday that a repeal of the law was necessary because, in part, the law’s length is too “overwhelming”
That's funny, because I'd think a majority of voters would say that Dodd-Frank was literally the least Congress could do in response to Wall Street's excess. But Mitt continues to look out for his favorite people. And he's in full retreat from common sense on climate change, too. Not even three months ago, he said greenhouse gases were the cause of global warming. Yesterday, he said he wasn't so sure:
"Do I think the world's getting hotter? Yeah, I don't know that but I think that it is," Romney said, as reported by Reuters. "I don't know if it's mostly caused by humans."
"What I'm not willing to do is spend trillions of dollars on something I don't know the answer to," he added.
