At CPAC, Romney offers red meat -- er, cake 

Speaking at CPAC today, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney compared Obama to Marie Antoinette, citing the president's response to increasing unemployment rates. “It could be worse” sounds scarily like “let them eat cake,” said Romney—“excuse me, 'let them eat organic cake.'”

Romney's digs at Obama's failures—including a “they get, we give” foreign policy— have been main points of his long-running presidential campaign. His Obama put-downs served as a segue into a not-so-subtle “if I were to run for president, it wouldn't take me two years to wake up to the economy crisis.”
