    Romney Says He Was Handed a Bad Economy

    LMFAO. And what the hell do you think President Obama was handed?
    Only the 2nd worst recession in our history.

    Mitt Romney has been dogged by an unfortunate statistic for his entire campaign: When he was governor, Massachusetts ranked 47th in job creation. President Obama’s campaign has ramped up the attack this week in response to Romney’s assertion that he knows how to create jobs — a fact he says is backed up by his record in the private sector. Sunday, Romney’s campaign struck back with a new line of defense: Romney stepped into a serious situation and improved it.

    If it sounds familiar, it should — it’s the same line of reasoning that Obama is using to persuade voters to stick with his policies.

    Twice on Sunday, Romney’s advisers appeared on television armed with different numbers than the ones wielded by the Obama campaign. On ABC’s “This Week,” Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter and top Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom duked it out over Romney’s Massachusetts record.

    Massachusetts “did fall to 47th out of 50 in jobs creation,” Cutter said on ABC’s “This Week.” “Wages went down when they were going up in the rest of the country. He left his successor with debt and a deficit, and manufacturing jobs left that state at twice the rate as the rest of the country.”

    Former Presidenty Bill Clinton said Romney economics would be “crazy.”

    “Their economic policy is austerity and unemployment now, and then a long-term budget that would explode the debt when the economy recovers, so the interest rates would be so high, nobody would be able to do anything,” Clinton charged.

    “So the politics is wrong on the Republican side, the economics are crazy,” Clinton said, adding that Obama has “made the best of a very challenging situation.”

    “The alternative would be, in my opinion, calamitous for our country and the world,” Clinton concluded.
