That Flip, He's One Smart Bidness Man!
Willard "Mousse/ Muff/ Flip" Romney's latest strategy is to puff up his business experience as a credential for fixing the economy. Yes, Willard, if we only had a former bidnessman at the helm of state today, why this econo -- what? Dumbya was an oil man and baseball executive before he was governor of Texas and preznit? How did a sharp guy like you let that one get by you? Oh, you have to take a call from Gov. Schwarzenegger? Go right ahead.
Meanwhile, WaPo's Ruth Marcus ranks the economic stimulus plans of the various Democratic and Rebunglecan candidates. Here's what she had to say about bidnessman Willard's:
"(Grade) D. Romney's plan is way too big ($233 billion) and badly constructed (most of the stimulus goes to business breaks, his individual tax credits don't go to those who need them most, and his huge, long-term tax cuts would harm growth if not paid for). You don't have to be a Harvard Business School grad to understand that encouraging savings is not stimulative."
