Romney — after days of squabbling — also threw in the towel on the crime issue, saying Rudy did a great job and he(Romney) really wasn’t all that responsible for crime. He said: “I think we all recognize that the mayor did a wonderful job at reducing crime in the City of New York. I’m not a mayor, I’m not running for a mayor’s job; I didn’t have a police commissioner. But I did take the actions that I could, as a state governor, to improve our state police, to strengthen our state police, to be able to put in place the DNA laboratory — we more than tripled the size of our DNA laboratory — and did the things we could to improve crime — our crime enforcement. And I’m proud of the fact that we were able to reduce crime during my tenure.”
Glad we cleared that up.
