Halperin: Romney's 'safe, generic' Iowa campaign leads him to top of poll

12/30/11 04:43PM

Mark Halperin, Time Magazine: "Mitt Romney is running a low-risk campaign. He is doing some interviews, but his stump speech…is about the Olympics.

I’ve been in very tough races in Pennsylvania…I’ve been scrubbed and scoured, and people know if there’s anything out there, it’s out there. And that’s a good thing. There’s no surprises, and I’ve got a strong, consistent conservative record. I’ve been married one time with seven children. I live a pretty boring life except for the fact we have seven children. That keeps us pretty busy. But there’s really authenticity here that’s gonna go out there and fight the battles and be the sharp contrast to Barack Obama. read more
