Even though Mitt Romney hasn't released a single plan or strategy, recent polls indicate that the American people feel he would be better at handling the economy. First off, the polls miss a few valid points. 1. The press has given Obama negative press for 15 straight weeks while Mitt has actually been the darling of the so-called left wing media. Mitt Romney’s media coverage has been more positive than President Obama’s, study finds - Political Intelligence - A national political and campaign blog from The Boston Globe - Boston.com 2. Mitt has received this positive press without a single idea being presented to the public. 3. People assume because he made a lot of money at Bain, he must be good, "how" he made the money hasn't been considered. We can take a look at their backgrounds and their very public choices about the future of the auto industry to get a glimpse of how either president would affect the future economy. To understand Romney's position on the auto industry, take a look at his "public" track record at Bain and the Olympics [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GpfeAIRYYHk]Romney - Several hundred million $ from govt. for Olympics - YouTube[/ame] Mitt thanking the senate for the "several hundred millions dollars" of taxpayer money they gave him for the Olympics. Enough said from Mitt himself about the Olympics. And Bain? Remember they refused to invest in the car industry. And when Mitt worked there, they specialized in bankruptcy. Which would have made that industry a good choice. The Republicans only policy is "cut taxes". Romney's only experience is "go bankrupt". This is why Mitt refuses to release his tax returns during his time at Bain. Remember, Obama stepped in and saved the auto industry. Not just auto's, but also steel, plastics, textiles, small restaurants, housing and everything supported by the auto industry. No one was willing to invest in that industry. The damage to the economy would have spiraled down and thrown us into a great depression if we followed Mitt's plan of bankruptcy. And Mitt's record as governor? 47th in job creation. Even though unemployment was low in his state, when he entered office, it was lower than the national average and higher when he left. The only state that lost more jobs was Louisiana which was hit by hurricane Katrina. It took a category 5 hurricane to keep Massachusetts from being worst in the nation. Once the press and the Obama campaign zeros in on their actual records, it will be interesting to hear the candidates dialog. Just once I wish the Right Wingers at USMB would fight facts with facts. If they have a different take than reality, please, post it. Mitt himself backs up my position.
