GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney sharply criticized President Barack Obama over the state of the economy, saying "Barack Obama has failed America." That's was the first of many lies. Fact is President Obama has created over 2.5 million jobs across America. Romney attacked Obama for expanding the role of the federal government, adding, "we are only inches away from ceasing to be a free market economy. I will cap federal spending at 20 percent or less of the GDP and finally, finally balance the budget." His comment about free market was completely incorrect. US is still the world's strongest free market. Nevertheless, we saw what happened in 2008. We don't to repeat 2008 in 2011. President Obama has repeatedly said when the free market doesn't operate the way it supposed to, the government has to step in and regulate it before burning out millions of taxpayer money.
"From my first day in office my number one job will be to see that America once again is number one in job creation," Romney said when he announced his candidacy. Now how can he do that when he said in he released in April that he only created few 100 jobs throughout his private-sector career! In the same video, he went on to say that, "some I succeeded, but sometimes I failed," sometimes he sucked. We can't afford a president in the White House who sucks sometimes. Also, let's not forget RomneyCare! He passed universal healthcare in Massachusetts, but now he practically opposed what he signed into law. Can't wait to see how that's going to play out in 2012 election campaign.
"Since Mitt Romney bowed out of the Republican Primary in 2008, he and his handlers have been meticulously planning today's announcement – banking on a 2012 New Hampshire primary victory to slingshot him to the nomination," says Ray Buckley, chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic party. "However, the problem for Mitt Romney is that the reason Granite Staters rejected him three years ago remains the same today: they believe he is a wishy-washy, flip-flopping politician who will say anything or take any position to suit his own immediate political needs."
National Democrats are also characterizing Romney as a "flip-flopper." The Democratic National Committee is out Thursday with a web video titled "Romney: Same candidate, different positions."
