Mitt Romney Does Not Want Positive Economic News To Be Made Known

June 21, 2012

Talking down the economy is such slimy Republican tactic.

“Romney’s presidential campaign asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state’s economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee’s message that the nation is suffering under President Barack Obama, according to two people familiar with the matter. Scott, a Republican, was asked to say that the state’s jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency…

“A Romney adviser made the request this week to Scott’s staff after press releases from the governor’s re-election campaign and Internet messages from the Florida Chamber of Commerce trumpeted the state’s drop to 8.6 percent unemployment rate in May from 8.7 percent in April, the people said. The national unemployment rate is 8.2 percent. Scott’s news release said the jobless rate had dropped 11 consecutive months in Florida and asked supporters to ‘spread the news’ on Facebook, Twitter and by e-mailing their friends. Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an e-mail that Romney frequently praises governors ‘for their ability to overcome the job-stifling policies of the Obama administration.'”
