  •  Don't see the appeal here. (0+ / 0-)

    Romney could say "I'm not running to make myself better off, I'm running to make the American people better off and they are not."

    The other thing is that it chaps me that the investor class IS better off while most of us have to say it was worse 4 years ago and could have been a whole lot worse, but things are still awfully tough.

      of Romney asking this question of the American people while hiding his own increase in wealth during the Obama administration?  You don't see how average folks would find it astounding to see how he DOUBLED his wealth over the past four years?  Nope.  I think this is perfect to expose the real Romney and why he's hiding his returns.

    •  He would never say that because that's not who he (0+ / 0-)

      is. That thought would never cross his mind (running to make the American people better off). I think the line works.

      •  Of course it would never cross his mind -- (0+ / 0-)

        that's what he has a campaign staff for, for Pete's sake! And his campaign staff would certainly instruct him to say something like that.

        Through careful management, my assets have continued to yield returns despite many obstacles. And that is the careful, productive management I will bring to the job of leading our national economic recovery. Unfortunately for the American people, President Obama has not been as careful in his management of our finances; his wasteful tax-and-spend policies have caused a devastating increase in the deficit and severely hindered job creation.

          typical pack of lies, start to finish - especially the finish, which is easily disproven.  Obama has lowered the deficit and increased jobs by over 4 million and the only people hindering job creation are REPUBLICANS in Congress.  Obama introduced a jobs bill months ago and Republicans in the House won't even CONSIDER it.

          In the end, Romney will have to drop his, "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" slogan 'cause it's now blowing up in his hypocritical face.

          Best. President. Ever.

        •  Campaign staff?! You mean the same people... (0+ / 0-)

          that forgot to tell him to mention the TROOPS in his speech?? Yeah, sure, they'd tell him what to say...

          Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed...
