Mitt Romney and his push for 2008 stimulus

Mitt Romney has been discovered contradicting himself and his past positions on too many occasions to count. The newest discovery in the paper trail of flip-flops is what Romney said about the need for a stimulus.

In the latest Rewrite on The Last Word, Lawrence O'Donnell described how, in four years alone, Romney "has talked his way from being a classical Keynesian to a Communist."

In 2008 when the economy fell off the cliff in the months after the presidential election, Mitt Romney thought something had to be done ASAP. Even though we had a lame duck president, George W. Bush, and a lame duck Congress, Mitt Romney thought our economic situation was so dire that we needed action from Washington.

On December 19th, 2008, in an op-ed for The National Review, he wrote, "What is Washington waiting for? The inauguration is less than five weeks away: At the rate we've been going, another 500,000 jobs will be lost by then... Congress and the president must act now."

Romney closed his piece with this dramatic order for Congress, especially Republicans in Congress. "The Democrats may want to wait for Obama, but the country needs action now. Republicans can — and must — play an important role in shaping a stimulus bill that makes sense for America and lays a foundation for future prosperity and growth."

He's singing a different tune now. According to Romney now, "a stimulus approach has not worked. The idea of item by item, looking for a quick solution and throwing gasoline on the fire — that hasn't worked. The first stimulus of almost $800 billion didn't create private sector jobs....The president needs to put aside all these stimulus plans, and instead work to restructure the foundation of America's economy."

To O'Donnell, the "restructure the foundation of America's economy" is a "purely Communist idea."

Some scumbag Democrat stole a Romney sign from my front yard last evening.

To think the Democrats present themselves as the party of tollerance is laughable.

They are nothing more than NAZIs.

I guess I now have to get the sign stored in my garage and put that up, as I knew some lowlife Democrat would do this.

Democrats, the party of the criminal mind, hate, no tollerance.

Save our patriots & ambassadors.

Vote Romney/Ryan 2012!
Please.

Let's see what sort of obfuscation this will bring, if anything at all.
2008....
A Republican Stimulus Plan
Act Now
By Mitt Romney
....So this is surely the time for economic stimulus. But — and this is the crucial point — the government can’t just make itself bigger and more oppressive in the guise of stimulating the economy. That would make matters worse. Nor should we forget that fiscal stimulus is but one part of the solution. As Christina Romer, Barack Obama’s designee as chairperson of the Council of Economic Advisors concluded from her study of the Great Depression, bad monetary policy was its greatest cause and good monetary policy was its most effective cure. The Fed should continue to expand the money supply. And, it should confirm that it will not tolerate deflation — the pain of inflation pales in comparison.
That being said, a stimulus plan is needed without further delay....

So maybe you should watch this so you won't be so clueless.

Like the original—which now has 1.8 million views and growing—this video is a reminder that no matter what Mitt Romney says he believes, you can be pretty damn sure that not too long ago he said that he believed the exact opposite.

Romney Offers an Economic Stimulus Plan
Mr. Romney used the proposal to distinguish himself from his rival Senator John McCain, who declared in a recent debate that his short-term approach to an economic slowdown was to cut spending.
“That is not stimulative,” Mr. Romney said of the McCain approach.
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/19/us/politics...
That is what is 2 trillion increase in military spending is - a stimulus action.

Romney wrote an Op-Ed in the Times in December of 2008 & outlined his plan.

His plan differed with Obama's only in military spending. Romney believes military spending is the best stimulus action.

What the hell are you talking about Carol? Investigations were begun by federal prosecutor John Durham into the treatment of detainees and included the deaths of two detainees ,Gul Rahman and Manadel al Jamadi but no charges were ever filed let alone dropped.
There's no evidence that any useful information was ever obtained by torture and Bin Laden's whereabouts was determined by good old fashion intelligence work using tips to get the name of Bin Laden's courier and ultimately tracking him to the compound.
Obama deserves a lot of credit for making the risky decision to send the SEAL team in. The result was not only the death of the most notorious terrorist of our times but a treasure trove of intelligence found on computer flash drives recovered from the compound.
But what the heck Carol, just keep pulling stuff from your tuchus; it's amusing as hell.
It's amusing and astounding beyond words
