Gov. Romney has posted a new op-ed on his Facebook page before it has even been posted on the New Hampshire Union Leader’s site. This is the first time I can remember Mitt making his Facebook page the only place to read one of his op-eds even if it will only be for a short time. When Mitt announced his exploratory committee with a tweet, Facebook post, and YouTube video, we noticed, and now this is another example that is indicating Gov. Romney’s campaign is going to be very savvy and comfortable with all of the new media that many other campaigns are struggling to utilize properly.
Anyway, the new op-ed is called Obama is Not Serious About America’s Financial Health, and if you listened to any of Gov. Romney’s radio interviews last week, you’re probably familiar with Mitt’s argument. If not, make sure to read it for yourself. I’ve lost count at how many times Gov. Romney has pointed out what should’ve been obvious to the current administration and to the majority of the media. Sometimes the issues seem to complicated for the media to tackle, but Mitt has a way of boiling down the issue to a simple and understandable argument that will make him a great President. It sure will be refreshing after 4 years of our current president who muddles up issues rather than clarifying them.
Since Gov. Romney is scheduled to be on Greta tonight, I bet some of the conversation will be on this op-ed, so don’t miss it.
Governor Mitt Romney – ON THE RECORD at 10pm / Monday: Make sure you watch…… http://fxn.ws/fnBtZt
UPDATE by Jayde – The Wall Street Journal has published an article on Gov Romney’s op-ed today:
The average voter probably doesn’t pay as much attention to the bond market as Mitt Romney does, but that didn’t stop the former Massachusetts governor from using a threatened downgrade of U.S. debt as a chance to criticize President Barack Obama.
In an op-ed in Monday’s Union Leader in Manchester, N.H., the former Massachusetts governor accused the president and his top advisers of downplaying the news last week that Standard & Poor’s had lowered its outlook for U.S. debt for the first time since it began those appraisals in 1941.
