Romney For Obama in 2004? Blaming President For Economy, Job Market Is "Poppycock"




Flip Flop Romney

"Do you want to stay with the President who is rebuilding the economy, who is creating jobs or do you wanna stop midstream and find someone new who says he's gonna raise taxes?"

"I believe that raising taxes can do nothing but slow down the economy."

"I don't know an economist in the world that says, no, the right way to get an economy going is taking money away from the people.

"No the right way to get an economy going is to give incentives to the people and to put money in their hands"


Study: Romney Plan Would Raise Taxes On 95% Of Americans


Mitt Romney’s tax plan would be a boon for the wealthy, but a tax hike for 95% of Americans, according to a new nonpartisan study.

The report by researchers at the Tax Policy Center, a joint project of the Urban Institute and Brookings Institution, examined Romney’s suggestion of an across-the-board 20% income tax cut financed by closing existing loopholes and concluded there was no way to make the numbers work without burdening the vast majority of Americans with higher taxes.

Romney has not said which tax breaks he would end to finance his plan, but he has suggested that he would only look to breaks that benefit the wealthy. The report concluded that notion is a fantasy no matter how it’s constructed: There simply are too many middle class tax breaks on the table to avoid skewing the burden against the average American.

“Even if tax expenditures are eliminated in a way designed to make the resulting tax system as progressive as possible, there would still be a shift in the tax burden of roughly $86 billion from those making over $200,000 to those making less than that amount,” the report reads.

2. Old Campaign Videos: The Gifts That Keep On Giving

Old campaign videos: the gifts that keep on giving. Since President Obama isn't going to run a Dukakis--Kerry Little Lord Fauntleroy political campaign against R-money, I hope these clips are used to their hardest-punching, most effect.

4. His videos of past speeches

are a gold mine. He doesn't know from whence he speaks or what position to take from one day to the next.
