Obama’s Math Mish-Mash, Romney’s Expertise, Speaks on ECONOMY in Ames, Iowa

Mitt Romney has criss-crossed the nation many times listening to and speaking with small business owners and everyday Americans deeply concerned about the economy. He’s pictured at such a meeting at Brewery Bar IV on June 19, 2011 in Aurora, Colorado. (Photo – John Moore/Getty)

A couple of nights ago, President Obama admitted his MATH challenges to Jay Leno. Do you think his deficiencies just might have something to do with his economic challenges? Like his bullheaded thinking that government is the engine behind America’s economy? (Notice: I did not use Obama’s “bull******” word.) What about his failure to understand that continually spending more than we take in has put us on the rickety road to ruin? Does his aversion to arithmetic prevent him from grasping that he’s added almost as much debt held by the public as all prior American presidents in history? How about the President’s choking on things like, oh… say, a FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BUDGET?

Take a look:

Leno: Here’s Samantha from Colorado: “When you help your daughters with their homework, is there a a subject you struggle with?”
Obama: Well, the math stuff I was fine with up until about seventh grade.
Leno: Yeah.
Obama: But Malia is now a freshman in high school and — I’m pretty lost.
Obama: Fortunately, they’re great students on their own. and, you know, if something doesn’t work, I’ll call over to the Department of Energy and see if they have a physicist to come over.

How about we call Mayflower moving company and get the math mish-masher out of the White House? We’ve got someone running for president whose passion for numbers, economic analysis, and results is part of his DNA. Undergirding it all is his passion for helping people. It’s helped him turn around failing businesses, a state in trouble, and an entire troubled winter Olympics.

How did Romney learn so much about numbers, economic analysis, and business? Glad you asked! Here’s how:

Romney attended Stanford University for a year before serving 30 months as a missionary for his church. He then headed to BYU (where Ann was attending) to study English and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Mitt wanted to pursue a business career, but his Dad advised him that a law degree would be helpful to him, even if he didn’t become a lawyer. So, he enrolled in a grueling, newly-formed, joint four-year Doctor/Master of Business Administration program coordinated by Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School. It was a rigorous, dual course of study. (He and Ann were married by then and were busy parents to two small children. Ann also determinedly finished her undergraduate work by taking night courses at Harvard University Extension School. In 1975, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in French language from BYU.) With hard work, discipline, and dedication, Romney graduated in 1975 cum laude from the law school in the top third of the class. He was named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top five percent in his business school class.

★ Also worth noting: We’ve got a vice-presidential candidate, Congressman Paul Ryan, who also runs arithmetic circles around Obama and Biden.

You’ll like this: Romney for President today launched four excellent new videos on SterlingBusinessCareer.com. It’s a NEW website highlighting Governor Romney’s successful achievements in the private sector. When you stop by, you’ll hear from folks who worked at businesses benefitting from Romney’s work. Romney for President says, to date, the campaign has released 17 different videos documenting The Gov’s private-sector experience. The videos have been viewed over 125,000 times.

Here’s one of the new vidoes: ‘Uniquely Qualified’

If you missed it, Romney delivered a fantastic economic speech today in Ames, Iowa. Watch it here!

★ While Romney was standing with a stalwart crowd of patriotic Americans in blustery, chilly Iowa today, speaking on matters of great importance, and while further incriminating news about Benghazi was breaking, President Obama put on his suit to rock with MTV host Sway Calloway. No calling in (like he does for those pesky security council meetings); MTV deserved his presence! Listen to this hard-hitting question and how Obama rambles trying to give a presidential answer:

JOBS: Mitt Romney Uniquely Qualified, NEW Videos of Private Sector Success

Unlike Barack Obama, Mitt Romney KNOWS how to create jobs…

Shining a spotlight on Governor Romney’s phenomenal achievements in the private sector, here are three NEW videos released today by Romney for President on website SterlingBusinessCareer.com.

In 1986, Mitt Romney and Bain Capital helped found Bright Horizons, a childcare business that established company-sponsored day care centers at corporations, hospitals, universities, and government agencies. By providing on-site day care, Bright Horizons makes it possible for parents to stay close to their children while at work.

Though the company did not make a profit in its first five years, Bain Capital stuck with the business to help it succeed. Today, Bright Horizons employs 20,000 workers, pays employees above-market wages, and has consistently been ranked as one of the “100 Best Companies To Work For In America.” Additionally, Bright Horizons has been a good corporate citizen by being actively involved in charitable and youth-wellness causes. First Lady Michelle Obama and others have praised Bright Horizons for serving “as an example for child care centers nationwide.”

Bright Horizons Co-Founder Doug Wooden with former employee Kim Bealieu:


PHYSIO-CONTROL

Mitt Romney and Bain Capital invested in a defibrillator manufacturer facing an existential crisis following years of regulatory shutdowns. As the only investor willing to take on such a large risk, Bain Capital succeeded in turning around Physio Control and saving hundreds of jobs. Romney’s and Bain Capital’s support helped Physio Control design and distribute portable defibrillators, which have saved countless lives since their introduction in the 1990s. Unfortunately, Obamacare will place onerous new taxes on medical device manufacturers like Physio Control, killing jobs and stifling innovation.


MASLAND

Masland designed and manufactured components for car interiors for companies like Ford, GM, and Chrysler. Under Bain Capital’s ownership, the business took off and created hundreds of American manufacturing jobs in Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and California. Bain Capital also supported Masland’s innovative benefits program that let every worker share in the company’s success; every Masland employee received the same benefits package regardless of rank. When Bain Capital sold its stake in Masland in 1993, the business employed over 3,000 workers, and Masland’s Carlisle, Pennsylvania plant had grown into the largest automotive carpet plant in the world.


That’s what we’re talking about, America! Mitt Romney = JOBS!

Obama’s Credibility is Severely Degraded by Battleships and Benghazi

Mr. Obama’s condescending comments in the debate last Monday evoked embarrassment for him as his stature seemed to diminish right in front of my eyes. As if this much younger man with virtually no leadership experience 44 months ago feels so elevated as to lecture a proven, seasoned leader such as Mitt Romney. Mr. Obama’s hubris knows no bounds. The nature of narcissism is such that humility is rarely felt by a man that places high value in the power he thinks he possesses.

The WSJ editorial board published a short column titled, A Game of Battleship? Mr. Obama’s supreme confidence in slamming Governor Romney on the size of the Navy serves to only compound a growing sense among Americans that Obama’s credibility is eroding.

And so the question is not a game of Battleship, where we’re counting ships. It’s what are our capabilities.

That was President Obama at Monday night’s debate, rebuking Mitt Romney for noting that the U.S.Navy is the smallest it’s been in nearly a century and may soon get smaller. It would be nice to think the President has been up late reading Alfred Thayer Mahan. To judge by the rest of his remarks on the subject, he hasn’t.

We mean Mr. Obama’s well-rehearsed jibe that “we also have fewer horses and bayonets” than we did during World War I. This was followed by the observation that “we have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”

Yes, Mr. President. And we have fewer of all of those things, too.

Many historians believe that President Reagan defeated the mighty Soviet empire economically; that by building a strong national defense, the Soviet Union was constantly keeping up until it effectively went broke.

When the Soviet Union fell in 1991, the Navy counted 529 ships in the fleet, including 15 aircraft carriers and 121 nuclear submarines. In 2001 the Navy was down to 316 ships, with 12 carriers and 73 subs. In 2011 the numbers were 285, 11 and 71, respectively. On current trajectory, Mr. Romney said, “we’re headed down to the low 200s,” a figure Mr. Obama did not dispute.

The President is right that the ships the U.S. puts to sea today are, for the most part, much more capable than they were 20 or 30 years ago. But that’s true only up to a point. Aegis cruisers and destroyers responsible for defending their immediate battle space are now taking on the additional role of providing ballistic missile defense. The tasks multiply, but the ships aren’t getting any additional missile tubes.
[...]
Concerns about ship numbers may seem passé. They also seemed passé to many in the late 19th century, which is exactly why Mahan wrote “The Influence of Sea Power Upon History.” If we’ve again become cavalier about maintaining the freedom of the seas, it’s because a powerful U.S. Navy has accustomed us to indifference. Weaken the Navy further, and that’s a luxury we’ll lose.

Ultimately, it is the credibility of the POTUS that allows him to retain authority through reelection. One definition of credibility is “worthy of trust.” The complete erosion of trust was so complete with Presidents Johnson and Carter they lost a second chance to serve (President George H.W. Bush lost mainly because his vote was bifurcated with Ross Perot). It has become most apparent to me and many other Americans that President Obama is no longer worthy of our trust. Daniel Henninger’s weekly column in the WSJ is excellent on this subject: Suddenly, a Credibility Gap:

There have been only two events that could be said to have caused significant movement by voters in the campaign. One was the Oct. 3 Denver debate in which Mitt Romney disinterred political skills that stunned the incumbent and woke up a sleeping electorate. Race on.

The other is Benghazi. The damage done to the Obama campaign by the Sept. 11 death in Benghazi of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American colleagues has been more gradual than the sensation of the Denver debate, but its effect may have been deeper.

The incumbent president has a credibility gap.

The phenomenon of a credibility gap dates to the Vietnam War and the presidency of Lyndon Johnson. The charge then was that LBJ wasn’t leveling with the American people or Congress about Vietnam. The credibility gap was hardly the only thing that caused LBJ to withdraw from the 1968 election, but it eroded support for his presidency.

Credibility gaps can be unfair things. They generally involve difficult foreign affairs in which presidents possess information and realities never revealed to the general public, presumably for its own good. That may be what this White House believes about Benghazi. But it is also true that only this White House knows why it allowed the Benghazi disaster to drip though the news from September into October, with no credible account of the attack, even as reporters for newspapers such as this one got the story out.

In time it was no surprise that people began to ask: Was the White House hiding something about an event of enormous gravity to protect the president’s candidacy? For much of the American electorate, that would be cause to start marking down a presidency.
[...]
Even by the standards of our celebrified culture, Barack Obama’s personalization of the American presidency has been outsized. He and his political team sought this aura. Hillary and the rest of the cabinet receded, while he rose. In Monday’s debate, Mr. Obama stumbled into a summation of his status: “This nation, me, my administration.” L’etat, c’est me.

Until now, it worked. Despite an awful economy, the president’s likability numbers held firm. Many wanted to believe in this larger-than-life president. His clumsy handling of Benghazi, however, has opened a gap in the president’s credibility…
[...]
It may be that voters think both candidates have stretched the truth, but credibility is the coin of a presidency. The political cost of devaluing that coin is higher for an incumbent seeking a second term and higher still for this one. Two weeks from Election Day, Barack Obama has been shown in Benghazi to be a president with feet of clay. It may well take him down.

Contrast Mr. Obama’s loss of trust or credibility with the following statement made by Governor Romney in Colorado this week when he walked out to speak at a much larger audience than he had expected; as reported in The Ulsterman Report:

“Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy. Please give me the strength Lord.”

Mitt Talking Points

For those of us talking to friends about why Mitt over Obama, I thought I’d compile a few talking points:


1. National Debt.

national debt

–Obama has significantly added to our now $16 trillion in national debt and has had over $1 trillion in deficits in each of his four years, after promises to cut deficit in half. Obama still has no plan, unless you count the glossy photo brochure with re-tread unfulfilled promises from 2008. Romney / Ryan do have a plan.


2. Bipartisanship.

–Mitt has been a model of bi-partisanship, which will be needed to reduce the deficit. Obama has blamed a GOP Congress for his failures.

3. Mitt’s a Model of Success.

–Mitt’s business, personal and government life are models of success. He’s actually done what Obama has promised: balanced budgets, turned broken enterprises around. Obama can’t seem to get past his own pride.

4. Four More Years?

–We have experienced 4 years of Obama. To expect better the 2d term is, by definition, insane. He knows he can’t change Washington from the outside.

5. Historically Low Employment.

–3.5 years of unemployment over 8%. If people hadn’t left workforce unemployment today would be over 10%.


6. Obama’s Work Ethic.

–Obama seems to show up about half the time (famously missing security briefings, unbelievable number of golf games). Mitt is already preparing just in case he wins the election, so he’ll be ready to hit the ground running.

7. Obamacare.

–This is our last chance to unwind Obamacare. Otherwise all the taxes, future healthcare rationing, lack of doctors and other problems will be permanent.

8. Supreme Court.

–Between 2 and 3 Supreme Court justices are likely to retire during the next 4 years, a liberal, a conservative and a swing justice. The next president will likely stack the court for a generation, either right or left.

9. Mitt Has a Plan.

–Mitt has a 5 point plan for economic success, Obama only attacks Mitt; does not have a real plan. Mitt’s plan: expand energy, build workers’ skills, cut deficit, focus on small business, promote fair trade. Obama’s: raise taxes, keep spending.

10. Stuff Obama Says (Odd Priorities; Egotism).

–Stuff Obama says: 4 deaths in Libya were a “bump in the road.” “If you have a small business, you didn’t build that.” Conservatives cling to guns and religion. He tells the Des Moines Register he has a plan to deal with immigration but wants to keep it off the record. Telling the Russian president he’ll have more flexibility when he doesn’t face re-election. I could go on.

11. Newspaper Endorsements.

–Reno Gazette Journal and a slew of other papers just endorsed Mitt.

12. Weak Foreign Policy.

–Obama’s foreign policy isn’t working; projecting an image of weakness has invited attack. First US ambassador to be killed in 30 years after security assistance was requested; the White House was alerted but did nothing while a drone watched. Stories out of the administration were inconsistent for weeks.

13. Twelve Million Jobs.

–Mitt has promised to create 12 million jobs in his first term.

14. President Biden?

–If anything happens to Obama, Joe Biden would be president.

I know there are others. My imagination tends to wane in the wee hours of the night. Add to comments what your talking points are…

Des Moines Register’s Dramatic Front Page: Obama Denigrates, Romney Rises

Obama’s Pamphlet? Romney to Deliver Significant Economic Speech in Iowa

Photo – Eric Thayer / Getty Images

BIG News…

Governor Mitt Romney will deliver a significant economic speech this Friday in Ames, Iowa.

CNN:

His speech will be delivered in Ames, Iowa, and is aimed at “reinforcing the big choice in November,” a top campaign adviser told CNN.

At that rally in Reno, Nevada, Romney also underscored his argument that Obama is not advancing an economic plan.

“We’ve had four debates and he hasn’t been able to describe what his plan is to get this economy going,” the GOP candidate said. “You can boil what he’s saying down to four simple words, and that is: ‘more of the same.’”

Romney’s economic speech comes on the same day he and running mate Paul Ryan will rally supporters in Ohio.

Isn’t it telling that throughout all these months of Obama not drafting a budget, avoiding meetings with his security council, whacking the ball on the golf course, shooting hoops, throwing White House parties, appearing on late night talk shows, hanging out with Anna Wintour, Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Eva Longoria, and more, and blah blahing about Big Bird, binders, and bayonets, he couldn’t put together a pencilled paragraph on what he plans to do, if elected, for the next four years.

Suddenly, after the lights on the last presidential debate were turned out, the very next morning in Delray, Florida, Obama was ballyhooing a booklet of 20 glossy pages he’d pasted together on how he plans to continue to destroy America undo the mistakes from his first four years. For all the fake noise he’s made these many months about Romney not having a plan (which Romney did and continues to have) Obama never mentioned a peep about NEW plans when they could have been discussed and examined and in a debate. But, hey. That’s his M.O.; think back on the way Obamacare slimed into being. Transparency and Obama are like a tomcat and a bubblebath. Ain’t gonna happen.

Shortly after word of Obama’s pamphlet sailed across the universe surrounded with the gilded halo of the mainstream media, I was pleasantly shocked when CNN’s Jessica Yellin declared Obama had nothing new; it was what he’s been saying for months, just old stuff in a glossy booklet.

It’s too little, too late, same ol’, same ol’, so sad, too bad.

From The Wall street Journal (Obama was speaking of his sudden, sparkly new plans):

I won’t be running the okey doke on you,” he [Obama] added.

Voters may okey doke themselves if they believe this document, which is heavy on backward-looking and discredited factoids and light on economic specifics.

Tune in, America.

On Friday, you’re going to hear a successful, proven leader, job-creating businessman expound even further on how we get out of this mess. You’ll see the difference between our okey doke, slowpoke President and masterstroke Mitt Romney.

NEVADA: Taking Action to Get Out The Vote — Duty Calls

By Rachel Anderson

I had the opportunity to depart to Las Vegas, Nevada for three days last weekend to be a part of something monumental for America. As the 2012 Presidential election is at its peak, with only 11 days to go and a close race behind us, nothing but determination has motivated hundreds of volunteers from all over Utah and California, including myself, to get Mitt Romney elected in the White House.

Rachel Anderson

With Nevada being one of the twelve swing states for November’s election, I couldn’t help but sign my name up to make sure Romney got the good ole Sin City’s votes.

As I stood in line with 100 other students and retired adults getting ready to board the bus, the Romney Campaign volunteers handed each one of us “Romney/Ryan 2012: Believe in America” stickers. At that moment, all I could think to myself with a smirk on my face was “Move it or lose it Obama, my man Mitt’s taking over the White House!”

With previous experience volunteering for Prop 8 my senior year of high school in 2008, I kind of had an idea of what this experience was going to be like; knocking on doors, making phone calls, being an awesome representative for what is right…you know, the usual civic duties. Although I’m not the happiest or nicest person when it comes to walking around for hours in dry desert heat, I sucked it up and told myself this was for America.

Friday night we arrived at the Marriot hotel in Las Vegas around midnight. Our trip leader started passing around envelopes with our names on them that included a deployment schedule, 30 bucks cash for food and hotel room key. I thought to myself… “Mitt really knows how to take care of his people and keep his supporters happy, even in Vegas!”

8:00 Saturday morning, we found ourselves waiting for the bus to take us to Brady Industries where everyone would meet for instruction. After listening to a welcome speech from Jim Davies, Ann Romney’s brother, they immediately put us in vans and sent us to a Republican rally put on by the Mitt Romney Campaign. After a couple hours of food, comedians, speakers and radical rallying, we were then sent out to different parts of the town with bags full of, Romney/Ryan fliers, early voting location fliers, Dean Heller fliers, pens, and precinct bubble-in forms with registered voters names. We then started our quest to receive either support or straight rejection for the Republican Party.

The next two days involved constant walking and making phone calls; talking to many proud supporters of Romney, encouraging them to vote early in hopes to receive support for the Republican ballot, in which most already had. Aside from the excitement we received from Romney supporters, we also ran across many pro-Obama supporters. Some closed the door on us, some yelled at us and some even called the cops on us. It made me wonder why all these people were so angry towards everything that comes near them.

As the hours cruised on by and the day got hotter by the minute, I ran into a lady, in her 70’s who really stood out to me. As we were walking through her neighborhood, she asked what we were doing. I told her we were part of the Republican Party reminding voters to vote in hopes to receive support for Romney and Ryan. With a bitter sound to her voice, waiting for her to yell or kick me off her property, she said this:

I’m a Democrat. Born and raised a Democrat. But I’m voting for Romney. We need to save this country.”

Just from those simple words, it was a humbling experience for me. Knowing and seeing that people with different views and beliefs than the rest of us can see the danger and despair our country is in. It doesn’t matter who you are – your race, religion or what you believe – we are Americans; this is America and we need to work together to fight for our country. We don’t want any of this Obama ‘change’ talk that is dividing our country while we watch it crumble from the laziness of our current president. In fact, why would we ever want a president that can’t even man up and take responsibility for his own actions?

Let’s vote for a man that can rebuild a foundation for our country and bring hard work, education and belief in God back in this country; a man that we can not only trust, but that can be a strong leader and representative of our nation. Romney is the man to help mend our nation and bring us back together as a country and to save the citizens of America. He is a true American and stands up for what is best in this nation. This short three-day weekend in Vegas helped me to realize the importance of the 2012 election and the impact it will have on all of American society. With a few parting words – make your vote count and let’s kick Obama out of the White House!

Romney/Ryan: Resounding, Resolute Support at Red Rocks, CO!

Thousands upon thousands came to hear Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan speak last night at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, near Morrison, Colorado. NM Governor Susana Martinez, and entertainers Kid Rock and Rodney Atkins, also shared the stage with Romney and Ryan. Click on image to enlarge.

What a night!

In spite of gridlocked traffic hours before the event began, from near and far, they pressed forward. Driving up mountain roads, through the rocks they came…

As far as the eye could see, thousands of Romney/Ryan supporters made their way to magnificent Red Rocks Park, Colorado, for a chance in a life-time to see Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan – together for the first time in the beautiful Centennial State. The venue filled to capacity; many were turned away.

Sarah Hoyt at Instapundit.com writes:

Romney Ryan Rally at Red Rocks: [W]e left our home in time to get there just before five under normal conditions. About thirty miles out, the highway became a parking lot, where we got stuck for the next two hours. The freaky thing was the lines extending behind us at least as much. The highway exit was closed, but we’re conservatives/libertarians, we find ways. So we went back roads, parked in way outlaying parking lot (for another facility) and tried to walk. Only the people ahead of us were getting turned back at the door, so we all walked back to our cars shouting stuff like “Romney” and “Soon a real president.” Look at those pictures and let me tell you, at least that many of us were turned away or prevented from approaching.

See 360 photo posted here (scroll in/out, click two circles at top for 360 degree views).

As the enormous crowd waited to hear Congressman Ryan and Governor Romney (who, by the way, was fresh off his third and final well-executed debate with Obama), entertainers Kid Rock and Rodney Atkins wowed them.

Up-and-comer New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez – the first female Hispanic governor in the history of the United States – was also on hand to rev up the massive audience. (Remember her terrific GOP Convention speech?!)

Martinez:

Now, President Obama rattled off a “cute” joke last night about defense planning not being a game of Battleship. Well Mr. President, our BUDGET isn’t a game of Monopoly, either! Attacking Mitt Romney is NOT an agenda. Four more years, like the last four years, is NOT a solution.”

You see, this election, we’re not just picking the next president for four more years. WE are picking the direction and course of our country for a generation. It doesn’t matter which generation you come from – this is the most important election in YOUR generation!

Colorado Rockies first baseman Todd Helton also popped on stage to voice strong support for Romney and Ryan. (*See press release below).

If there would have been a roof to raise, this Romney/Ryan rally would have blown it clear up to the moon shining down on them.


UPDATE - Highlights not included on above video:

Romney supporter: “I have been at Red Rocks because I’ve lived here and I have never seen a crowd like this!

Another supporter: “It’s on fire! Red Rocks is on fire because Mitt Romney is here. And, we are thrilled to be a part of it.”



A view from the top… “More people came than the amphitheater could hold. Momentum grows even more!” (Photo and comments from @dmitchell624)
