The general election campaign unofficially kicked off Tuesday withÂ Mitt RomneyÂ continuing to sharpen his criticism of President Obama, saying a second term for the incumbent would be dangerous because he is not being upfront about the policies he plans to pursue.
The Romney line of attack echoes that ofÂ Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of theÂ National Rifle Association, who has warned his groupâ€™s supporters that the president is trying to lull them into complacency and then would use a second term to â€œdestroy the Second Amendment.â€
Republican concerns about a second term were exacerbated by an exchange Mr. Obama had last month when he told Russian PresidentDmitry MedvedevÂ â€” in a conversation caught on an open microphone â€” that he will â€œhave more flexibilityâ€ after the 2012 election to work on issues such as missile defense.
â€œHe is clearly trying to hide from us what he intends to do,â€Â Mr. Romneysaid at a town-hall meeting in Delaware. â€œYou donâ€™t say that to the head ofÂ RussiaÂ without making it very clear to anyone listening that you have plans after your re-election that are different from those that youâ€™re willing to tell the American people. So, heâ€™s going to hide, and its my job to seek â€” and our job to seek. It is going to be a hide-and-seek campaign.â€
â€œThis plays right into what people already know about him: He says one thing to get elected and does something else once he gets elected,â€Â Mr. NorquistÂ said. â€œHe told him, â€˜Iâ€™m going to tell you now that I will do something different than what I will tell the American people.â€™ What do you think is said when they step into a dark room?â€
