    CBS:Bain attacks aren’t damaging Romney or Class division not working, how about race?

    President Obama is losing ground in the latest polls to Republican challenger Mitt Romney, who’s pushing back against Democrats criticizing his business experience.

    As the president has stepped up his attacks on Romney and his record at the private equity firm Bain Capital, Romney has indicated, during this crucial period to define himself to the electorate, he is not going to take the attacks lying down.

    “He just doesn’t have a clue what to do to get this economy going. I do,” Romney asserted in an interview with Mark Halperin, of Time magazine.

    Romney responded aggressively Wednesday to the Obama campaign’s attack on his work as CEO of Bain Capital and questions about his qualifications to be president.

    In the Time interview, Romney turned the tables, almost scoffing at Mr. Obama’s qualifications when he ran for president in 2008.

    “Right now,” Romney told Halperin, “we have an economy in trouble, and someone who’s spent their career in the economy is more suited to help fix the economy than someone who’s spent his life in politics and as a community organizer.”

    “vulture capitalism"
    another shallow talking point

    Free trade will benefit all
    Prosperity is not a zero-sum game in free markets

    However gov'ts that crowd out investment and stratify
    society with regulations that benefit donors and friends
    ie crony capitalism, statism etc
    never works for the majority of the people

    Really, if this is such a pressing issue
    Papa Obama should call for more tariffs

    That will really fix our economy

    By who's standard is he the underdog?

    By most accounts it's actually the other way around.

    The Bush's were life long businessmen and they left us with a bad economy.
