Yet another GOP candidate who doesn't stand a chance against this President. Romney's farcical presence insults the dignity of the Presidential process and the office itself.
He would make a fine candidate for the Donkey party.

But back on topic, does someone have a link to the Romney plan (the actual plan, not news stories about it)?

You can download it here:

The democrats didn't have complete control, the republicans still had the filibuster (which they abused) more then any other congress in US history. The right wingers are hellbent on destroying the country.

not the same and you know it. We say everything that happened or didn't happen the first 2 years. We saw a budget proposal (by the Republicans) that went nowhere because of the senate. I could go on and on, but I am probably wasting my time cause some of you have your heads in the sand most of the time.

The fact that you're attacking Romney and Perry is quite refreshing, I love smell of fear coming from the left these days. Better get your obama plates while you still can.
What is "I love smell of fear". Are you Tarzan? We don't shine shoes anymore BS in fact romney can shine my shoes since he is and still will be unemployed.

My favorite is that he'll try to phase out ALL taxes on dividends and capital gains on folks making $200K or less. To me, if that is done all sorts of money will flow into the stock market, providing needed capital for a bunch of companies. It would also kind of be the equivalent to making the caps unlimited for retirement investing on those folks making $200K or less. That's a great idea.

One thing I think he'll get some heat over is the China stuff. He wants to declare them a hostile manipulator of our currency, but he never addresses the Fed's own manipulation of our currency... which is potentially the more evil thing. China owns plenty of our debt; their currency manipulation props the dollar up, doesn't devalue it like what the Fed does. Now I realize that hurts exports and jobs, but it also stabilizes or increases the value of the savings people have and their home values. Now, all the other stuff he wants to do about China is great; the trade deal enforcement, get tough on copyright/intellectual property protection there, etc. Fine.

He will also probably need to expand upon the proposed free-trade deals with Columbia, Phillipines and South Korea as well as the change to a US territrorial tax instead of worldwide. Those things don't make good soundbites, although they may well be good economic policy.

Overall good stuff and way more specific than anything Obama has ever presented.

He does seem to sort of disappear for some reason. Today he came out with a solid economic plan, which is more than anyone else has done. Unfortunately, including the President.
