How can anyone be so out of touch? The woman's house is GONE and he tells her to go home and use the phone?
"Romney shook hands with National Guardsmen outside the U.S. Post Office and talked with a local resident, Jodie Chiarello, 42, who lost her home in Isaac's flooding.
"He just told me to, um, there's assistance out there," Chiarello said of her conversation with Romney. "He said, go home and call 211." That's a public service number offered in many states."
I guess Mitt left his wallet at home lol. Dork.
Voters are going to have to put a ton of confidence in his business experience if they think he's going to know how to create 12 million new jobs. On the other hand, according to Moody's Analytics job creation is going to happen no matter who is in the White House. This sounds like Nixon's secret plan to end the war, remember that one?
12 MILLION JOBS
The claim: "Unlike the president, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs."
The facts: This sounds like a pretty bold statement, especially considering that only two presidents -- Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, who both served two terms -- created more than 12 million jobs. Romney says he could reach this same goal in just four years, although the policy paper his campaign issued contains few details. It is mostly a collection of policy assertions, such as reducing debt, overhauling the tax code, fostering free trade and so forth.
But the number is even less ambitious than it sounds. His pledge amounts to an average of 250,000 new jobs per month, a far cry from the 500,000 positions a month that Romney claimed would be part of a "normal recovery." In recent months, the economy has averaged about 150,000 jobs per month.
The Congressional Budget Office is required to consider the effects of the "fiscal cliff" if a year-end budget deal is not reached, which many experts think would push the country into a recession. But even with that caveat, the nonpartisan agency assumes that 9.6 million jobs will be created in the next four years. Moody's Analytics, in an August forecast, predicts 12 million jobs will be created by 2016, no matter who is president. And Macroeconomic Advisors in April predicted a gain of 12.3 million jobs. In other words, this is a fairly safe bet by Romney.
