Scott Brown: ‘We Would Not Be Worrying About Ebola’ if Romney Were President

Former Massachusetts Republican senator and current New Hampshire Senate candidate Scott Brown thinks that a lot of things would be different in the world had his friend Mitt Romney been elected president in 2012, including the Ebola crisis. During a Fox News Radio interview with Brian Kilmeade Friday, Brown said “we would not be worrying about Ebola right now” if Romney had won.

“Gosh can you imagine if Mitt was the president right now?” Brown said, reflecting on Romney’s role as a surrogate in his current campaign. “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.”

Brown did not elaborate on what Romney would have done differently to prevent the Ebola situation — nor did Kilmeade press him on the issue — but when reached by The Hill for comment, Brown spokesperson Elizabeth Guyton issued this statement:

“This is nonsense. Scott Brown was making the point that Mitt Romney would be handling these crises much more effectively than President Obama, whose failed policies Jeanne Shaheen has supported 99 percent of the time.”
