I don't hate Romney.

I hate what he stands for. And I hate the lies. The incessant, unapologetic lies. But I don't hate Romney either. Don't know him.

Again, I agree with you that Obama needs to point out that the stock market has doubled during his reign, unemployment is the lower than when he took office, the national debt is growing at a slower rate than under bush (16% vs 13%), GDP has been growing since he took office (it was declining for several years before), etc.

And if Rmoney tries his "successful businessman" BS, point out that he started his business with a loan from his rich daddy, he promptly drove that business into the ground and begged for (and received) a government bailout** (skimming $10M from FDIC in the process), and then proceeded to drive companies into bankruptcy by loading them with "consulting fees". He walked away with the fees, and those businesses had to lay off thousands of employees as they went under.

Made him rich, but it's hardly what I would call a "successful businessman". Successful businessmen build something, contribute something. Think Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Gordon Moore, etc. Romney was a vulture tearing apart his weakened victims.


**Apparently bailouts are OK when Mitt wants them, but not OK when autoworkers want them.
