Romney: This election is about the economy!

Public: Fine. Tell us the details of your plan to improve the economy.

Romney: Uhhh … I shouldn’t have to talk about that because this election is about my experience as governor of Massachusetts.

Public: Fine. Let’s look at the facts, statistics and details of what you accomplished as governor.

Romney: Uhhh … I shouldn’t have to talk about that because this election is about my experience at Bain.

Public: Fine. Let’s look at the details of what you did, and when, while at Bain.

Romney: Uhhh … I shouldn’t have to talk about that because this election is about my experience and ability in creating jobs.

Public: Fine. Let’s look at the facts on how many jobs you actually created within the U.S.

Romney: Uhhh … I shouldn’t have to talk about that because this election is about my success at leading the 2002 Olympic Games.

Public: Fine. Let’s look at how much federal subsidy money you took to get the games operational.

Romney: Uhhh … I shouldn’t have to talk about that because this election is about my abilities to fix the country’s financial situation.

Public: Fine. Let’s look at your tax returns to see how you manage your own finances.

Romney: Uhhh … I shouldn’t have to talk about that because this election is about Obama’s war on religion!

Public:  Mr. Romney, exactly what *ARE* you willing to talk about as part of this campaign?

Romney:  My past, my taxes, my time at Bain Capital, that’s all personal. I would hope we can have a campaign focused on the issues rather than one of desperation and lies as we’ve seen from the Obama campaign.

 

So, to summarize, for the past decade, Mitt Romney has said that the PRIMARY REASON he should be elected president is because of his masterful skills and experience in business and finance, and that his experience as governor prepared him for the White House better than anyone.

And now,  now that his past and all that vaunted experience is being exposed as a pack of lies, mistruths, distortions and “retroactive reality,” he wants to take discussion of his professional past and business experience out of the candidacy equation?

Sorry, Mitt. Not only will that dog not hunt, it won’t even get into the crate on the roof of the car.
