    Romney campaign said to ask Scott to downplay economic gains

    June 21 (Bloomberg) -- Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state’s economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee’s message that the nation is suffering under President Barack Obama, according to two people familiar with the matter.

    Scott, a Republican, was asked to say that the state’s jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency, according to the people, who asked not to be named.

    Who did? I love anonymous sources. Oh wait a state headed by a Republican is doing well, hmmmm, maybe the Romney camp should use that as a model for a national campaign.

    Is reading too difficult? It's a wire article from Bloomberg.

    What a moron. Romney wants governors to understate their states' economy, so he can look more needed. Amazing.
