Forum Post: Mitt's Massachusetts Excuse: I Inherited a Recession

"For months, GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has falsely claimed that President Obama "did not cause this recession, but he made it worse." This week, Romney charged that Obama "started off by blaming George Bush, and that worked for a while but, you know, after three and a half years that wears kind of thin."

Governor Romney might want to rethink his strategy of accusing President Obama of playing the blame game on the economy. After all, on Wednesday his campaign defended his dismal record in Massachusetts by protesting Mitt "took office at a time when the state was losing thousands of jobs every month." And as it turns out, Eric Fehrnstrom and Team Romney have been claiming Mitt inherited a Bay State recession for years."

HAHAHA oh irony

the recession is due to the 1% fucking over the 99%

it has little to do with any president and more to do with the 1% and a bought congress.

Congress writes the budget, not presidents.

So Republicans get free reign to attack Obama, but Romney gets to brush off his ineptitude with this lame excuse?

That's the way it works on this forum. The Republican trolls get to post their anti-Obama threads and they're never deleted while anyone who wants balance gets called an Obama shill.

I don't want ANY partisan crap on these boards. Mods: Take it all down!
