The Bain of Obama’s Economic, Presidential Existence: Romney Preferred by 2 to 1 Margin over Obama to Handle the Economy …
The “Bain” of Barack Obama’s economic existence …
Try as Obama might, but his attack ads against Mitt Romney’s business record and Bain Capital have failed miserably. Obama has spent millions of dollars on negative ads trying to smear Mitt Romney and it did little to nothing. Much like Obama’s presidency, the Obama ads have been an epic fail.
The economy, job creation and unemployment are the number one issue fir the upcoming 2012 Presidential election. According to the most recent USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, Mitt Romney is preferred over Obama 63% to 29% in handling the economy. Even more amazing is that those surveyed say Mit Romney’s background in business, including his time at the private equity firm Bain Capital, makes Romney capable of making good decisions, not bad ones, in dealing with the economy. So much for Obama’s trivial and petty political ads against Romney and Bain Capital that have proved to be misrepresentations. American know better, they are more concerned with the economy, not attack ads from a failed President.
Despite concerted Democratic attacks on his business record, Republican challenger Mitt Romney scores a significant advantage over President Obama when it comes to managing the economy, reducing the federal budget deficit and creating jobs, a national USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds.
By more than 2-1, 63%-29%, those surveyed say Romney’s background in business, including his tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital, would cause him to make good decisions, not bad ones, in dealing with the nation’s economic problems over the next four years.
The findings raise questions about Obama’s strategy of targeting Bain’s record in outsourcing jobs and hammering Romney for refusing to commit to releasing more than two years of his tax returns. Instead, Americans seem focused on the economy, where disappointment with the fragile recovery and the 8.2% unemployment rate are costing the president.
Powerline discusses a point that many have pondered, including us at Scared Monkeys … how on earth is Barack Obama above water, tied in the Presidential polls or even close when there is just one disastrous poll after another stating that no one trusts him with the economy? Ultimately, the answer is that the polls are probably not as close as the vote will be in November. When give a choice of 4 more years of the nightmare of Obama and a change to bring back American exceptionalism, the voters will go against Obama.
