Mitt Romney won't let reality take him off message (Jessica Rinahldi/Reuters)
So Mitt Romney gives a speech
about how President Obama's economic policies suck and how his experience with leveraged buyouts at Bain Capital means that he would do a better job.
The problem is, he gives the speech on the same day that the new jobs report shows continued jobs growth in February, an upward revision jobs growth in December and January, and the strongest 12-month stretch of jobs growth in more than five years.
So what does Romney have to say when reporters ask him about those numbers?
After his event, Romney declined to answer reporters’ questions about the Friday’s jobs report.
Shush, y'all. Stop your giggling. Romney's refusal to comment makes total sense, you see. Romney's campaign is all about Obama's failure to create jobs. And he's not going to let some pesky facts take him off message.
