Just like Willard wants it..No need for common folk when giving a speech about the economy.

The few Wall Streeters who showed must have liked what they heard. His tax cut scheme has been determined to amount to a $80 break for the bottom 20% and $260,000 for people like Romney. Oh, and it puts the country further in debt while gutting Medicare and other programs.

Let's put all policy considerations aside for a second. This comes down to basic competence.

Even if having Romney appear before a handful of people in a huge, empty stadium was the Dec's idea, WHERE THE HECK WAS ROMNEY'S TEAM??? And, since his team failed him, WHERE THE HECK WAS ROMNEY??? Hasn't he got the brains to take one look at this set-up, and put the kibosh on it? And, we're supposed to hand this guy the keys???

This will go down in history as an all-time goof in election campaign optics, rivaling Dukakis bobbing along in that oversized helmet, driving that tank.

That's President Willard to you...and I hope you're one of the moonbats who is going to flee to Europe after Dumbo gets canned.

President of the Foot in Mouth Club....I think Willard will be taking one of his wife's "pricey Cadillacs" back to whatever factory he was made in. He'll need a good tune up before 2016.

He still has a ways to go before he's calling Special Olympics kids "retarded" like Dumbo does, but maybe by 2016 after his first term. You never know.

Willard had nothing to do with that. The Detroit Economic Club ran the event.

Can you imagine if Romney had said something so completely assinine...they would still be talking about it.
