The uber-religious GOP congressman from Iowa, Steve King, told a rally there Friday he knows how Mitt Romney as President would make important decisions. King, with Romney next to him, said he probed Romney about it and came away liking the answer.
“When you’re in the White House, in the Oval Office, and you’ve heard from all of your advisers, all of the smartest people that you can put together, it’s the toughest decision a man can make; (that) a mortal can make in this life," King told 2,600 of the party faithful at Northwestern College in Orange County, Iowa..
"And you know that some people are going to live, maybe live better. And some people are going to die as a result of the decision that you make. How do you make that decision when it’s time to kick all of your advisers out of the room, and close the doors, and turn down the lights? And Mitt Romney said to me, and America: 'I get down on my knees and I ask God.'”
King: "Don't doubt this man's faith"
King also spoke about U.S. President Barack Obama. He said the values of Iowans were "values of faith, and family, and freedom, and free enterprise, and constitutional conservatism and self-reliance” and that “the president of the United States undermines our values day after day, after day.” He did not say how Obama was undermining the values of Iowans but he did offer more on Mitt Romney and his faith.
“Don’t doubt this man’s faith. Don’t doubt his convictions,” the Iowa congressman said about the former Massachusetts governor. “Do not doubt his patriotism or his faith and his love for Jesus Christ our savior.”
Romney and Obama each did some campaigning in Iowa Friday.
