Romney knocks Bryan Fischer‘s ’poisonous language’

Mitt Romney

Speaking at the "Values Voter Summit" in Washington, D.C, on Friday, Mitt Romney criticized the "poisonous language" of Bryan Fischer, a leader of the American Family Association. Fischer spoke directly after Romney.

From Politico:

“Our values ennoble the citizen and strengthen the nation. We should remember that decency and civility are values too,” Romney said. “One of the speakers who will follow me today, has crossed that line, I think. Poisonous language doesn’t advance our cause. It’s never softened a single heart nor changed a single mind.”

In his speech, Romney also hit at President Obama's economic policies. "To help create jobs, it helps to have had a job," he said. And sounding a bit like Donald Trump, he said he would "finally clamp down on China."
