Mitt Romney: Obama Not A Socialist, But A "Big Government Liberal Democrat"

(RealClearPolitics) - Presidential candidate Mitt Romney would not call President Obama a "socialist," instead saying he is "just over his head" and a "big government liberal Democrat."

"You know, I prefer to use the term that he’s just over his head,” Mitt Romney said on FOX News' "O'Reilly Factor" tonight. "I consider him a big government liberal Democrat. I think, as you look at his policies, you conclude that he thinks Europe got it right and we got it wrong. I think Europe got it wrong. I think Europe is not working in Europe, and I’ll battle him on that day in and day out. But I’m probably not going to be calling him names so much as calling him a failure."
