Scott Brown: US Would Not Have Had Ebola Crisis With Romney

By    |   Friday, 17 Oct 2014 10:54 PM

New Hampshire Senate hopeful Scott Brown declared Friday America "would not be worrying about Ebola right now" if Mitt Romney had been elected president.

"Gosh can you imagine if Mitt was the president right now?" Brown said on Fox News' Brian Kilmeade's radio show Friday. Audio was posted onto youtube. 

"He was right on Russia, he was right on Obamacare, he was right on the economy. And I guarantee you we would not be worrying about Ebola right now and, you know, worrying about our foreign policy screw ups."



Fellow Republicans applauded the remarks, pointing out Romney himself had the same view of President Barack Obama's and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's handling of the outbreak, The Washington Post reports.

While campaigning in New Hampshire this week, Romney blasted both the president and CDC and joined the growing chorus calling for a ban on flights from West Africa.

"Look, this administration couldn’t run the IRS right, and it apparently isn’t running the CDC right," Romney said at the time, The Post reports.

"I’m glad he’s stopping campaigning for a couple of days and finally focusing on this. This is the lives of the American people, and we have to treat this with real seriousness and sobriety, and I don't see that yet."

Brown, who is challenging Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, has stumped with both Romney and Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul this week, The Post reports, praising both men but reserving particular praise for Romney amid persistent talk he's weighing a third presidential bid in 2016.
