He also criticized President Barack Obama’s leadership on getting a farm bill passed by Congress.Romney is so accustomed to lying, he just can't stop. There isn't an issue that he won't lie about. The unfortunate fact for Romney is that there wasn't a bipartisan failure on this bill at all. The Senate passed its version of the bill with very few problems, back in June with 16 Republican votes. The House Agriculture Committee passed a crappy farm bill, with too egregious cuts to food stamps.
“People have been waiting a long time for a farm bill,” Romney said, saying the president “has to exert the kind of presidential leadership” to get such a bill enacted.
But the nihilists in Boehner's caucus said no, they wanted deeper cuts and more pain, and that was that. Boehner refused to take up a bill that he could pass, one that Democrats would join him on. Boehner political calculation is the reason there is no farm bill. For the first time in modern history. And Mitt Romney just lied about it. Of course.
