Romney Uses Factory As Backdrop That Closed–Under George W. Bush
Someone didn’t do his or her advance work.
Mitt Romney spoke at a shuttered drywall company visited four years ago by then-candidate Obama to make the argument that Obama’s record has yet to live up to his lofty rhetoric.
On an empty warehouse floor, Romney laid the blame for the company’s fate squarely on Obama…
“Had the president’s economic plans worked … it would be open by now, but it’s still empty,” Romney said. “It underscores the failure of this president’s policies with regards to getting this economy going again. The other day, the president was in Ohio, and he said that this campaign was going to come down to his vision. His vision for America. If you want to know where his vision leads, open your eyes, because we’ve been living it for the last three years.”
The company actually shut down in June 2008, months before Obama took office and his economic policies took effect.
