Former US Prez Carter 'comfortable' with Romney but believes Obama will win re-election

Washington , Thu, 26 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 26 (ANI): Former US President Jimmy Carter has said that he would be "comfortable" with a President like Mitt Romney, but believes that current US President Barack Obama will keep his job.

"I'd rather have a Democrat but I would be comfortable. I think Romney has shown in the past, in his previous years as a moderate or progressive, that he was fairly competent as a governor and also running the Olympics," Politico quoted Carter, as saying.

He further added, "He's gone to the extreme right-wing positions on some very important issues in order to get the nomination. What he'll do in the general election, what he'll do as president I think is different."

Carter reportedly said that Romney's success thus far proves that he has the 'skill to out-run his reputation as a flip-flopper'.

"Romney already has a reputation of being changeable in his positions. And so I think that's a stigma that he's already been able to weather at least in the Republican primary. If he moves back more to the center position on some major issues, I'm not sure he can suffer anymore as being changeable," Carter deduced.

Carter was seen to be of the opinion that the presumptive GOP nominee, Romney has "gone too far in the conservative positions to suit the average American. That's why I think that President Obama's going to be re-elected." (ANI)
