Mitt Romney: Who really has the power in Washington?

Question: Who really has the power in Washington?

Mitt Romney:A lot of people have power in Washington, and I must admit I get tired of the fact that people in Washington care more about power than they do about getting the job done for the American people. And I’m not gonna worry about who’s got power if I’m fortunate enough to be there. I’m gonna worry about getting America right for a change for the American people by ending illegal immigration; by making sure policies don’t make it hard for families to be successful; by helping our schools; by getting us off of foreign oil – by finally ridding ourselves of the peril of foreign oil; and by working with our friends around the world to help end the threat of global jihad. Let’s get the job done in Washington and listen to fewer politicians that just talk about themselves and about their prospects for their own future.
