Romney is Bush II - Same policies that crashed the global economy, same policies that continue to spew CO2 into the atmosphere to feed rapid climate change; same policies that turn public tax revenue into private wealth in the name of 'smaller government'

|Yesterday, presumed GOP nominee Mitt Romney made a major campaign stop at the shuttered factory where then-candidate Obama spoke in 2008. The National Gypsum plant has since closed, and Romney said that fact "underscores the failure of this president's policies with regards to getting the economy working again."
But Romney's implication that the plant's closing is a result of Obama's economic policies is undercut by the fact that the plant closed before Obama took office. The factory closed in June 2008, when George W. Bush was still president.
This isn't the first time the Romney campaign has tried to blame Obama for something that happened under his predecessor....
