Round 3: Obama. Any questions?
Déjà vu, or did Romney repeat Obama last evening? Was that pathetic, or what? The man had no original ideas which was obvious in his, Me too! answers. The only separation was, ironically, the stronger adhesion between Romney and Bebe than he and Obama. Attention: Florida! It seemed like each man was running for PM of Israel.
A trillion more dollars for the military. Interesting in that the military didn’t ask for it. Military welfare. In fact, GOP legislators are calling for more military welfare [ie, jobs] in their districts. Romney too. Does the governor want more frigates, too?
Romney memorized lots of data and attack lines but it was obvious that he didn’t know what he was talking about. The GOP spinmeisters were out in full-force last evening hoping to salvage Romney’s sinking ship. Too late, blub, blub…
If anyone with an open mind believed from the performance last evening that Mitt Romney would make a strong Commander-in-Chief, then the Governor is indeed an excellent charlatan. Twelve million jobs too boot. Does anyone wonder, after ruminating on that bit of trivia, what kind of job? Where? How? And more importantly, how much does it pay?
Would that be 12M executive-type jobs [excuse me: positions]? Perhaps lawn maintenance for the one-percenters? Tar sand excavation in the middle of North Dakota? Twelve million ‘good’ jobs, he promises. How does Romney’s definition of ‘good’ differ from a laid-off worker in rural Ohio? Or would any job be a good job for someone out of work? Is that the bait? Let them eat cake.
Do the math. 12m ÷ 435= 4600 Yes, 4600 new jobs in every congressional district in America. Is that 4600 small businesses burgeoning? Or is that one manufacturing plant with 4599 job-openings? Perhaps 460 new pizza joints with 10 workers each? Or could it be 2300 mom and pop stores?
President Obama said that Romney’s economic ideas are stuck in the 1920’s. And his military ideas are from the 1800’s. Any questions?
