Romney Campaign Does Impossible: Gets Obama to Brag About Rick Scott

He's pointing at us! He is pointing at us!
Bloomberg had an interesting scoop yesterday: The Mitt Romney campaign asked Gov. Rick Scott to tone down his bragging about Florida's economy because it was interfering with Romney's message of economic apocalypse under Barack Obama. The report also said Scott "was asked to say that the state's jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency," because, hey, let's just make things up now.

In any case, it got lots of attention and gave Florida's unemployment rate national publicity Scott could never buy. It makes one wonder where the Bloomberg leak came from... but it also gives the Obama campaign a new thing to make fun of while it sends out about a splagillion emails a day about the DREAM Act: Late yesterday, they sent out a fake letter "from the desk of Mitt Romney."
Aside from, you know, the words, it looks kind of real -- that address in the top right really is Romney's campaign mailing address. Only in an election year could Obama be putting his arm around Rick Scott.

Yeah, funny fake letter. However, Obama takes pandering to a new low by BEGGING for your birthday money. Obama’s website on Thursday featured the pitch: "Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up? Let your friends know how important this election is to you — register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl. Setting up and sharing your registry page is easy—so get started today." I expect this will be taken down soon. Even democrats are complaining.


Layoffs and firings will continue as the economy improves!
