Mitt fabricates a record for himself to give President Obama a fabricated report card

Mitt Romney Gives Obama A Report Card

In a speech in Colorado Thursday, Mitt Romney debuted a “presidential accountability report card” he said shows President Obama’s failures during his first term in office.

Romney Camp Defends Poor Jobs Record: He Inherited A Bad Situation

Pema Levy

Mitt Romney has been dogged by an unfortunate statistic for his entire campaign: When he was governor, Massachusetts ranked 47th in job creation. President Obama’s campaign has ramped up the attack this week in response to Romney’s assertion that he knows how to create jobs — a fact he says is backed up by his record in the private sector. Sunday, Romney’s campaign struck back with a new line of defense: Romney stepped into a serious situation and improved it.

If it sounds familiar, it should — it’s the same line of reasoning that Obama is using to persuade voters to stick with his policies.

Twice on Sunday, Romney’s advisers appeared on television armed with different numbers than the ones wielded by the Obama campaign. On ABC’s “This Week,” Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter and top Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom duked it out over Romney’s Massachusetts record.

Massachusetts “did fall to 47th out of 50 in jobs creation,” Cutter said on ABC’s “This Week.” “Wages went down when they were going up in the rest of the country. He left his successor with debt and a deficit, and manufacturing jobs left that state at twice the rate as the rest of the country.”

1. Scorecard. Magic.

It would be mostly incomprehensible to the uninformed voter, I fear, even if there was any truth to it.

Up an down arrows, too much reading!

I"M COMFOOSED!1!!

3. So, it's not an issue with the willfully ignornant, uninformed voters.

Not a problem.

4. Willfully ignorant, uninformed voters will get aroused by anything that appears to shit on Obama.

I just don't find the scorecard clear or compelling.

I think Obama's crew is much better with messaging and clarity.

That was basically my point.

6. That scorecard looks like it was put together by some unpaid intern.

Weak sauce.

8. SMELL the details!

"Sell the Mystery, not the Mastery" works in Corporate American Sales, Mittens.

We the Voting Public kind of want to know how you're going to . . . "fix" this

Of course, we all know the answer to this . . . the usual high amount of Reaganite hyper-capitalist horseshit until we move to Mittens' utopia of Pure Capitalism and, in turn, something similar to South America in the 60s-70s.

We just want to hear it from you, greasy.

9. Just imagine what they will come out with two weeks before the election.




... when there won't be time enough to correct their lies and distortions.

The MSM would always rather go with the lie and distortions than the corrections.
