Mitt Romney sat down for an interview on 'Face the Nation,' fielding hard balls not typically thrown at him on Fox News. Meanwhile, Obama strategist David Plouffe darted among four other Sunday talk shows, zinging Romney and defending Obama's controversial moves.
It wasn’t exactly the Spanish Inquisition (no verbal water-boarding), nor was it anything like a proper press conference where reporters could tag-team him.
But there were follow-up questions. Three times, for example, Mr. Romney ducked answering whether he’d repeal President Obama’s order regarding the children of illegal immigrants brought to this country.
That’s a tough one for Romney, who’s feeling pressure from some prominent Republicans (Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Haley Barbour, among them) to back away from the very tough line he took on immigration during the GOP primary debates.
