That's the challenge we face in this race of poor and unemployed

The AP reports "Romney says Obama's jobs record a failure":

Mitt Romney on Thursday visited a factory shuttered when George W. Bush was in the White House, and said its lingering idleness marks a failure of President Barack Obama's economic policies.

"Had the president's policies worked it, would be open again," the Republican presidential contender told a small audience seated in the cavernous space. Obama visited the factory — then open — during his 2008 campaign for the White House, and Romney's aides chose the site specifically for its presumed political advantage.

So we should return to Bush-esque Romney economic plans? This guy can't articulate what he's going to do different than Bush economically. All he has articulated is a repetition of Bush: tax cuts (for the rich), deregulation, etc, etc.

Except for the political symbols brought in for Romney's speech — among them an American flag and a big sign that said "Obama Isn't Working," — the factory is a nearly empty, dusty shell of a plant where workers once turned out sheets of wall board used in housing construction.

I suppose we should blame Obama for the housing crises that shuttered this factory too. This guy has no chance.
