Just before yesterdays White House jobs summit, Mitt Romney minced no words in blasting President Obamas economic policies.
Like other presidents before him, Barack Obama inherited a recession. But unlike them, he has made it worse, not better, Romney wrote in an opinion piece published yesterday in USA Today.
The former Massachusetts governor - who made his name and fortune at private equity firm Bain Capital, ran for the GOP presidential nomination last year, and could very well run again in 2012 - derides Obamas economic know-how.
His failure to stem the unemployment tide should not have been a surprise. With no experience whatsoever in the world of employment and business formation, he had no compass to guide his path, Romney wrote.
Romney also joined in the GOP criticism of White House remarks that the $787 billion economic stimulus is working, and accused the administration of trying to disguise the truth by touting inflated figures of jobs created.
Focusing solely on jobs created while ignoring the far greater numbers of jobs lost is Harry Houdini economics, he added.
Romney laid out his own 10-point plan, including freezing stimulus money that has not been spent yet and redirecting it to the private sector; granting more business tax breaks; not allowing George W. Bushs tax cuts to expire at the end of 2010; ditching the cap-and-trade climate change legislation; and approving free trade agreements with Colombia and other countries.
Democratic National Committee spokesman Hari Sevugan defended the stimulus program, citing a study this week from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that estimated the stimulus saved or created between 600,000 and 1.6 million jobs through September...

Bob Riley will be the next president, God willing.
He is anti gun rights, pro-abortion, pro nationalized health care, hell he is Obama.
I notice he doesn’t, or at least the Glob doesn’t, say anything about his position on Obamacare. Does he want to do a gigantic Romneycare instead?
Romney is a two-faced, two-bit, political whore who would do or say anything to get elected. I will never forgive that treasonous bastard for taking a stand with PlannedParenthood and the liberals FOR abortion, gay rights, gun control, socialized healthcare, etc. We can thank HIM and the RINO traitors like him FOR Obama!!
Piss on Romney!
We like to think business cycles of the past are sort of just that, a think of the past. But is it really true? That is, are recessions cyclical or randomly occurring? The statement Romney makes about other presidents inheriting recession made me think about this. Reagan inherited one, then Clinton did, then Bush did, then Obama did. All separated by just about two terms or 8 to 9 years. 1980-1983, 1991-1992, 2000-2001, 2008-200?. Interesting.
Like other presidents before him, Barack Obama inherited a recession. But unlike them, he has made it worse, not better
I don't think that's fair.
Remember - FDR inherited a recession, and made it worse. So Barack is not unlike every other president.
You can't blast what you believe in. Nobody cares what Mittens thinks. Time to do more important things. What a waste of Internet space.
willard: “my healthcare socialism is better than obama’s socialist healthcare”.
Boy I knew if I read the posts I could feel the love. But you are correct. In the future don’t hold back on how you feel about Mitt-Witt. :-)
“including freezing stimulus money that has not been spent yet and redirecting it to the private sector; granting more business tax breaks”
Um... How about just giving it back to the taxpayers?
“Piss on Romney!”
Just muss his hair. That’ll make him look the whore he is.
I wish this spineless POS would just go away to a cabin in the Wasatch Mountains and die there.
“Um... How about just giving it back to the taxpayers?”
Or paying down the national debt...
RINO Romney: I dont like Barry’s plan because I didnt think of it first...
A metrosexual hissey fight?
let the bitch slappings begin.
"Come and drink my brand of koolaid ... Because if you'll remember many conservatives, such as the Great Rush Limbaugh, really liked me after I gave my "Mormon Speech" back in 2007!"
Romney should give it up already.
