    Mittens will be in Florida today. Maybe he can explain the Ryan plan that will eliminate social security as we know it. There are a few seniors in Florida who might be affected. Want to bet that he will flip flop so the seniors, armed with shuffleboard sticks, don't run him out of the state?

    By a few seniors in Florida, I meant several million.

    If we had followed Mittens advice and let Detroit fail, not only would GM and Chrysler gone down, so would the manufacturers and suppliers of auto parts. That would have meant that Ford would have been bankrupt, as well, because they would not have been able to get parts either.

    I think Camp Obama has taken the entirely wrong approach with their Bain Capital narrative. They have jumped straight to the conclusion without bulding the back story. They make the naive assumption that everyone knows the details of Bain, which they don't. People need to be reminded over and over again of Mitt Romney's claim that he was a job creator at Bain. Romney claimed to have created 100,000 jobs while "at Bain", but has since backed off of that ridiculous claim. It is Mitt Romney's supposed job creation skills that need to be attacked, first and foremost. Camp Obama is playing this backwards and it will backfire badly on them.
