John Heilemann on Hardball: Romney Hasn’t Thought Through His Stance on the Housing Crisis


Our own John Heilemann visited Hardball today to discuss Mitt Romney’s recent comments that the country’s foreclosure crisis should “run its course,” saying this makes the candidate appear “totally ignorant.” “He is supposed to be the guy that has private-sector experience … that he actually understands how things happen in what he likes to call ‘the real economy,’” Heilemann said. “There aren’t that many people who think that it is a healthy thing for the economy to continue to let this play out.” What’s that saying about people living in enormous houses?
