Mitt has got nothing

He can't run on his record.



(I hear outsourcing jobs overseas, I think Bain)

He spent most of the campaign running away from his record as Governor.

Any mention of it leads to whining.

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.”

Mitt's campaign is driven by lies, excuses and whining.

Now that he's running away from Bain, all he has left is his dismal record as Governor and a health care law he has retroactively disowned.

1. In the mean time the President is looking stronger by the minute

Man he looks good, the President that is. His policies sound great, his initiatives are spot on. We've got one hell of a good man as Our President no matter what the naysayers might say.

4. Maybe it's time for Wikileaks to step in

 

with some leaked tax returns.

Surely someone besides the IRS has
these apparently damning documents.

Hopefully, is just a matter of time

.. tick, tick, tick.

12. Former McCain campaign operatives had 23 or so years of Romney tax returns

 

dating from the 2008 campaign because McCain required them of prospective VP candidates.

McCain didn't pick Romney, and he hasn't been out there on the hustings for the Mittster, either.

19. Sunlight makes him nervous as hell

 

"what if they really see that whole Bain" thing?

Moonlight makes those close to him eat and
brandish lots of garlic.

It sucks to be Mitt these daze, and there's
no way around it.

11. He can't run on EITHER of his records now. Which leaves him with his skin color.

We did him the courtesy of ignoring his record as governor of Massachusetts -- including his health care plan and his destroying records of his tenure.

Now he's trying to run on this record at Bain -- but not the parts that don't make him look good.

Which leaves him with "Vote for me -- I'm not the black guy."

13. It just keeps getting worse for him, and it's going to get a lot worse

Obviously Willard has something to hide with his tax returns, and most likely it's pretty significant. I think he had hoped to wait until right before the election to release them, but now he's not going to have a choice. Furthermore, now that he's made a big deal over it, it's only going to make what's in there seem even worse.

15. Whatever he's hiding must be worse than the ass-kicking he's taking on NOT

releasing them. So it must be pretty good.

20. Mitt's problem

Releasing the tax returns is one issue. Then there are all the lies. He has to address dozens of questions (http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002952482), including where he lived, whether or not he attended meetings and the signatures.
