ROMNEY CLUELESS ON THE ECONOMY And the federal Government. Romney want to hold Obama responsible from day one when unemployment was 8.7% and rising and 8 million jobs had been lost and rising. We are still feeling the effect of 8 years of Bushs plundering and out of control spending. After three years it is still way to early to start blaming Obama for the condition of the economy. One thing we can blame him for is because of his hard work he avoided the worse depression ever. The fire Bush started did not go out when he left office, but thanks to Obama its just smoldering embers and another four years and I have confidence that the fire will be out. Romney is clueless on how the economy and the federal Government works. If its not broken, dont fix it.
