Well, I'm glad we got the explanations out of the way, because it just so happens that today, Mitt Romney held a campaign event at a closed factory—the idea being that he'd blame President Obama's economic policies for the closure.
Problem 1, identified by CNN's Jim Acosta, via Twitter:
Romney OH event site is a factory that closed when Bush was in WH. Yet Obama isn't working banner on scene. http://pic.twitter.com/...Problem 2: The plant was formerly a National Gypsum Co. installation. The National Gypsum CEO, Thomas Nelson, appears to be a big Republican and Romney donor. Which means a prominent Romney supporter decided to close the plant (during the Bush administration), and then invite Romney to come to the site and blame the decision on Obama.
And of course, there's Problem 3: If you're already nationally infamous for having made your multi-million dollar fortune from pocketing the payroll and pensions of workers whose factories you acquired and then closed, should you really be having campaign events at closed factories at all? Why not have one in a car elevator, while you're at it?
I tell ya, it's like an early birthday gift or something.
