Mitt Romney Says Obama Gives Liberals Too Much Clout on Healthcare

"Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney says President Barack Obama is struggling to get a healthcare bill because he has been too deferential to the liberal wing of his party.

Interviewed from Boston Thursday on CBS's "The Early Show," Romney said he thinks the president must shoulder the blame for the gridlocked situation surrounding healthcare legislation. Obama has allowed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others to have too much influence, he said.

"If the president wants to get something done, he needs to put aside the extreme liberal wing of his party," said Romney, who ran for the Republican presidential nod last year. "
