Romney right about one thing, and wrong about another
From Colorado Springs comes the Romney right: “Romney said the influx didn’t create a lasting solution.” Yep. Government expenditure on bailouts and infrastructure improvement was an expensive stop gap measure to stabilize the economy. It added to the debt though produced jobs, reducing unemployment and giving the economy to build capital for reinvestment.
Wrong Romney said that “Obama needs to get out of the way.” Nope. Correct Obama is working with business and industry and guiding Congress to produce favorable legislation to renew manufacturing America and to bring jobs back that were outsourced.
So, we don’t need to change what is not broken. The President is the right one, the Congress is wrong, and so is Romney the wrong choice for 2012.
“Romney: Obama needs to "get out of the way"
February 04, 2012 6:40 PM
Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney stopped in Colorado Springs on Saturday. But not for very long.
Though more than a thousand people turned out to hear the former Massachusetts governor speak at a hangar near the municipal airport, Romney spent less than 20 minutes talking to the crowd. Still, several said he was inspiring.
“Two words: character counts,” said local merchandiser Chris Jensen.
Leading the GOP primary field, Romney didn’t mention his Republican primary rivals, but spent his entire speech slamming President Barack Obama on nearly every topic imaginable.
“We elected this president to lead. He chose to follow. Now it’s time for him to get out of the way,” Romney said.
In Colorado Springs, he hammered Obama on the economy, the national debt, energy, the military, and perhaps the biggest political anvil this year — health care. Although Romney instituted a health care reform plan in Massachusetts similar to what Obama pushed at the federal level, the former governor promised the crowd that his first act as commander in chief would be to get “Obamacare” repealed.
Romney also hit the top topic of 2012: Jobs.
He pointed to the rally’s host, Springs Fabrication CEO Tom Neppl, and said it was the private sector thatwill drive the American economy to recover from recession, not the $840 billion stimulus package signed by Obama in 2009.
Though Springs Fabrication received stimulus money in 2010, Romney said the influx didn’t create a lasting solution.
