Meet Mitt Disingenuous Romney
Conservative news media Bloomberg reported that Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign had asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his praise for the improvement of state’s economy since the message is contrary to the presumed GOP nominee’s allegation that Obama has ruined the nation’s economy, and it is progressively getting worse under his reign.
Several Republican governors in the states of Ohio, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin have been touting about improving economies, and their claim is chipping away at the central theme of Romney’s campaign that President Obama has made it worse.
After eight years of disastrous financial mangling of Bush administration, in which time the budget surplus achieved by dept handling of Bill Clinton was turned into deficit, and the nation lost millions of job at an alarming rate, Obama not only stopped that hemorrhage of losing jobs in his very first year, he created steady positive job growth. Obama inherited a recession, and GOP took a vow to oppose any measure by him that could help the nation’s economy, and despite that he had been successful in arresting the free fall that Bush era had experienced.
If Obama had not been able to turn the economy it was because of relentless opposition from Romney’s own party who had vowed to make him one time President, as proudly announced by Mitch McConnell. Despite the GOP opposition, the economy had been improving and in Ohio, the Governor John Kasich was taking credit for the state’s falling unemployment rate and addition of 75,700 jobs in the last year.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder announced on June 19 that the state’ jobless rate had dropped to 8.5 percent in May from 14.2 percent in August 2009. Governor Robert McDonnell in Virginia aired an ad in April proclaiming net job gains since he took office in 2010. Even Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker maintained that his success in defeating his recall was due to the state’s falling unemployment rate.
Now Mitt Romney whose whole career in Ben Capital was based on destroying jobs, and was called a vulture capitalist by his own Republican rivals during the GOP nomination for destroying jobs, would have us believe that he would create jobs if he can get in the White House?
