Three holes in Romney's economic plan

    Romney is not going to fix the nation economy. That is the dream. He is not able to fix/prepare his Income Tax Returns for at least for 5 years, how can he manage the shaky economy which has made super economists sweat.

    Based upon what little we know so far....

    Obama's plan could have an annual revenue change of $150 billion.
    Romney's plans could have an annual revenue change of ($200 billion).
    Gingrich's plans could have an annual revenue change of ($800 billion).

    Funny, this sounds like everything else that he's done. It's missing important points.

    Only three CNN?
    Mittens is timid, tepid, two-faced, and transient, and his so-called solutions to the real-life problems that this country faces reflect these traits.

    1. Housing – He already stated that the foreclosures should not be rescued in order to allow "rich folks" to buy up the property and "rent" it out – no wonder he fails there.

    2. Taxes – He pays 13.9% taxes on income that is NOT "workable" income like most Americans do every day – and he even wants the rate to go down even further in a round-about way. If ginGRINCH has his way, he would drop the rate to 15% which means Romney will pay 0%.

    3. Spending – He's got it wrong here also because he wants to CUT spending but falls short on what programs he would cut to do so. That's because he's used to "spending" and does not have to worry about "budgeting" in his life!!

    In the end, it's President Obama that will get it all straight!! Obama 2012!

    The GOP is the party of We can't. We won't. We obstruct. We don't care about Americans, we will do and say anything to be in control. They pour gasoline on the fire and then blame Obama all the while standing there doing nothing. By the way, I'd vote for Romney before I'd vote for Gingrich, but I'd vote for Obama before I'd vote Romney.
