“He and virtually all the people around him have never worked in the real economy,” Romney said in the message. “They just don’t know how jobs are created in the private sector. That’s where I spent my entire career.” – Mitt Romney Announces 2012 Presidential Exploratory Committee
Pres. Obama hasn’t one clue how to inspire job creation in the private sector. It’s hard to imagine anyone worse on the economy, believing that taking money out of the economy is the answer; particularly since he doesn’t even want to hail how he steered the American economy away from a near disastrous depression.
At least Mr. Romney also understands the core problem in the economy. It’s just watching this video he doesn’t look like he can sell it.
Romney also makes another classic candidate mistake by trying to appear as someone he’s not. He’ll never be the average guy, never. So whoever advised him to stand in this setting wearing these clothes should be fired.
It’s a mistake Donald Trump would never make. He’s an egotistical, misogynistic, birther front man, but he is who he is and he’s not going to make the mistake of trying to remake himself for the masses. It would be impossible anyway.
Someone on my FB page asked whether he’s the new Bullworth. I think that pegs it. Trump claims he’s the Obama campaign’s “worst nightmare.”
The comments come after Plouffe joked on ABC’s “This Week” that he would love to face off against Trump in a general election match-up.
“I saw Donald Trump kind of rising in the polls. Given his behavior, and the spectacle of the last couple of weeks, I hope he keeps on rising,” Plouffe said with a smile. “There’s zero chance that Donald Trump would ever be hired by the American people to do this job.”
But Trump contends the opposite is true:
“I am not the person they want to run against,” he said. “They know it, and I know it, and I know it for a fact. Because I have a lot of people that, frankly, are contributors to him and they tell me, ‘Donald you are not the person you want to run against.'”
Trump, Pawlenty, Santorum, they’re all minor league players, with Trump a wild card who isn’t afraid of anything, because he’s not looking for anyone’s approval. He’s also got nothing to lose, which is always dangerous in an election season where volatility may be the foundation. His patter on China is the best in the field until and unless Jon Hunstman gets in the game.
As for Trump being Obama’s “worst nightmare,” I doubt it. His worst nightmare is if Democrats do what they should and walk away from Pres. Obama’s disastrous path, just saying no. That’s it. I’m through. No more. You’re on your own, pal. Then go concentrate on good progressive candidates.
Though if Trump throws down, I won’t miss one Republican debate. His candor is just, well, entertaining.
Oh, and mark tomorrow’s date. It’s RomneyCare’s anniversary.
