Romney To Obama: Welcome To Ohio, Champ. Where Are The Jobs?

Obama is “officially” kicking off his campaign today, a notion that even many in the media found absurd, understanding that Obama kicked off his 2012 re-election campaign about 5 minutes after he stepped into the Oval Office. Anyhow, Romney has an Ohio challenge for PBO. A few choice snippets. You have to read it in full for the full effect, one in which I hear an adult speaking in a calm voice, as opposed to Obama’s whining, blamestorming one

(Romney 2012 and Cleveland Plain Dealer) Dear Mr. President,

Welcome to Ohio. I have a simple question for you: Where are the jobs?

As we enter the fourth year of your term, unemployment is over 8 percent and has been for your entire term. Nearly 23 million men and women are unemployed, underemployed or are no longer even looking for work. In the face of such challenges, many Americans have simply given up hope.

I recognize, of course, as do all Americans, that you inherited an economic crisis. But you’ve now had three years to turn things around. The record of those three years is clear. Your policies have failed, not only in Ohio, but across the nation.

I like the way he hits Obama up with “inherited”. Every president inherits issues: it’s what they do about them that matters. Obama decided to use the economic downturn, which was a world-wide issue, to reward campaign contributers with the power and money of the US government.

Mr. President, forgive me for being blunt, but when it comes to economic affairs, you’re out of your depth. Unlike you, I am not a career politician. Unlike you, I’ve spent more than two decades working in the private sector, starting new businesses and turning around failing ones. Undoing the damage you’ve done will be a daunting challenge. But I’ve learned a thing or two about how government policies can kill private investment and stifle job creation and I have a plan to get government out of the way.

Who would have predicted a far left ideologue with no private sector nor executive experience would be so incompetent?

Mr. President, while campaigning for the presidency nearly four years ago, you declared that you were “absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”

Mr. President, the American people are tired of the grandiose promises. And they are even more tired of the paltry results.

And tired of legislation that was unpopular before it passed, and even more unpopular now.

Mr. President, your promises now ring hollow. If you have brought new ideas to Ohio for creating jobs, why have you waited three years to unveil them? Have you suddenly had a revelation, or is it because 2012 is an election year? Whatever the case, what you are offering Ohio now is too little, too late.

Don’t expect an real or new ideas to be trotted out today or in the future. It will be about simply raising taxes on people who succeed, on people who create jobs.

What Ohio needs — what the country needs — is not four more years of economic mismanagement and failed leadership. It needs a fundamental change in direction that, by returning the country to the principles of limited government and free enterprise, would unleash the potential of the American people.

Romney may be a bit squishy when it comes to some social issues, and we aren’t quite sure about his foreign policy, but, I believe he will be fantastic on the economy, which is one reason I support him. He understands the Way Economies Work.
