The Obama campaign’s main platform is to attack Mitt Romney on his wealth. The “Buffet Rule” and the President’s incessant class-warfare sentiments seem to be, at least to his campaign advisers, his only hope for reelection. Because touting economic growth isn’t working, nor is it going to, as his promise in 2008 took a rather painful nosedive.
So Obama attacks Romney on Bain Capital, thinking that demonizing him as some out-of-touch corporate sleezebag is going to secure him a second term.
But according to CBS News, that’s not happening:
As the president has stepped up his attacks on Romney and his record at the private equity firm Bain Capital, Romney has indicated, during this crucial period to define himself to the electorate, he is not going to take the attacks lying down.
“He just doesn’t have a clue what to do to get this economy going. I do,” Romney said during an interview with Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin.
Romney railed against Obama’s assault on his time at Bain Capital. In the interview Romney scoffed at the President’s qualifications when he embarked on his 2008 presidential campaign.
Even more consequential, though, is Obama’s relentless drive to push a Marxist economic agenda.
