Mitt Romney claimed he had balanced the budget during the 2002 Olympics.
I’m surprised Rick Santorum didn’t challenge him given that he has pointed out that Romney sought federal money to save the games.
It was a missed opportunity for Santorum.
UPDATE: O.K., maybe not. But Santorum gave a rather convoluted explanation of earmarks. Romney acknowledged seeking federal money for the Olympics and said to Santorum, “While I was saving the Olympics, you were saving the Bridge to Nowhere.” This conversation isn’t helping Santorum at all.
