Romney: Obama desperate for 'a twig to hold on to' on economy

Romney is focusing on the economy and says Obama is looking for a twig to grasp !!

He could be right since the past few weeks have been a problem for Obama on economic issues. Obama does seem to be grasping at straws and chasing shadows.

Especially with those insane claims that HE of all people are somehow "thrifty"

Obama & Co. have topped out the spending limits more than any other administration in history, and has borrowed to the max !!

Currently, Obama has out-spent Reagan by almost 2x and Eisenhower by 6x !!
(inflation adjusted dollars)

Mitt Romney sought to portray President Obama as desperately looking for "a twig to hold on to" with the economy while campaigning in swing-state Colorado on Tuesday.

But as the Republican challenger renewed focus on economic issues, his presidential campaign was besieged with questions about Donald Trump's controversial "birther" comments.

Romney hit many of his core economic talking points while stumping in Craig, Colo., arguing that the "president's policies made it harder for America to get on its feet again."

"His campaign these days is trying to find a twig to hold on to ... things are getting a little better in this country, but it's not because of his policies, it's in spite of them," the former Massachusetts governor said.

Let's see if the next jobs report lowers the unemployment rate due to people dropping off the unemployment benefit rolls

Corporate profits are at an all-time high.

General Motors is alive and Osama Bin Laden is dead -- both contrary to Mitt Romney's expressed intentions a few years ago,

Even employment figures are up a bit.,

OK, the statistics aren't yet terrific, but Dubya beat the economy black and blue before handing it over to Obama.

Time to stop blaming W. Bammy had his chance to fix or at least start fixing things. Instead he prioritized his socialist agenda. He killed jobs and wasted money at every single opportunity. Not that Bommy would be any better. TPTB want this nation destitute and devastated. Bommy/bammy will both follow their orders to destroy this country whatever it takes.

Not to sideline yet another bash Obama circle-jerk but do people truly believe Romney, the Republicans or David Copperfiled for that matter could be doing any better? The world economy is in the toilet and swirling the bowl. We are inextricably linked to that economy, like it or not. Over the past decade or so TPTB have done everything they can to facilitate companies moving their operations (read: jobs) overseas and NOW they complain about slow job growth? WTF? That and the Wall Street screw-up that ended the housing market is what killed the economy. Our manufacturing sector has been gutted. The construction industry (second largest job losses) and its related suppliers arevdirectly tied to housing. When it tanked, they tanked. Look at where the job losses came from. It's all talk --- from both sides. If any of you are deluded enough to believe that Romney or anyone else has some magic secret plan to fix things you are truly, truly lost.

In case you can't tell, NO I do not believe bommey is any better than bammy. It is Ron Paul or no one. Most likely no one.

Obama did what he was programmed to do.. just as Romney will be. Soon enough we will all hate Romney. Why? Because he's one of them! A corporate, fascist, big government, stomp on the little people type of dictator. And it is our fault for allowing this to happen because we cannot unite for one bloody cause!

/end rant

Wait a minute.

I thought Biden confirmed that Obama already has a Big Stick!
