Mitt Romney:  I  HAVE A BOLD, FIVE  POINT PLAN THAT WILL GET THIS COUNTRY MOVIN’ AGAIN……

1)   Achieve energy independence

2)   Trade that works for America

3)  Provide Americans with the skills to succeed through better public schools,

4)   Cut the deficit, reducing the size of government and getting the national debt under control ..

5)   Champion small business.

For anyone born before 1996, this is all completely new….  but for the rest of us;

2004  George W. Bush….. I  HAVE A BOLD, FIVE  POINT PLAN THAT WILL GET THIS COUNTRY MOVIN’ AGAIN……

1)   To encourage investment and expansion by restraining federal spending, reducing regulation and making the tax relief permanent.

2)   We will make our country less dependent on foreign sources of energy.

3)   We will expand trade and level the playing field.

4)  We must protect small-business owners.

5)  We must cut Federal Spending.

Then there was John McCains bold new plan.

John McCain — I  HAVE A BOLD, FIVE  POINT PLAN THAT WILL GET THIS COUNTRY MOVIN’ AGAIN……

1)  I will open new markets to our goods and services..

2)  I will cut government spending.

3)  We need to shake up failed school bureaucracies with competition, empower parents with choice.

4)  We all know that keeping taxes low helps small businesses grow and create new jobs.

5)  We’ll produce more energy at home.

See any similarities?    Here is the proper Obama response…

“We tried that.

We tried that in 2004.  Four years later we had an re-election of that policy in the middle of a economic collapse.   My previous opponent, John McCain, lost to me, because he held too tight onto that same platform;  he didn’t change from what we all saw, didn’t work… .

Now let me show you, what does work….

Over 5 million private sector jobs created since my team took office.

New housing starts now higher than when I took office.

Consumer confidence now higher than when I took office.

A Stock Market now higher, than when I took office.

Gas Prices, now down to about the same as three weeks before I took office

General Motors again became the largest seller of cars in the world.

Coal exports are now the highest since 1981.

More homegrown gas and oil drilled in the United States then before I took office.

Natural Gas Prices a hell of a lot lower now than when I took office.

Renewable Energy, off the charts higher now than when I took office….

Middle America is paying far less taxes than when I took office.

So don’t you go chasing after the first $5000 suit that says he can do better…  Do it like your grandparents did… Say .. “Show me… Show me how this will work, cause I’ve already seen how it don’t work….  I saw in 2004. I saw in 2005, I saw in 2006,   I saw in 2007. And I sure as hell saw it in 2008…”.   Now don’t tell me discussion about your track record in Massachusetts is now off limits, cause governor… even Texas Republican Rick Perry called you out to say, ‘boy,  you sure messed up there…..

Cause bottom line is… what we did… worked… Together, we, the people, put ourselves to work and together, we did this… We said, let’s get this done, rolled up our sleeves, and we did it…  This is really about you, your work, your effort…  And now, the other side is saying,  we need to change direction because  YOU didn’t work hard enough…  And now, the other side is saying, we need a change in direction because YOU didn’t work cheap enough; and now the other side is saying we; need a change in direction because YOUR collecting benefits that cost too much…   Well, I got news for the other side…  We pulled ourselves up after you knocked us down with your 5 point plan!  We pulled ourselves up, after you pulled the rug out from under us with your five point plan.  We pulled ourselves up, after you crashed the economy following a laundry list that does nothing but put OUR money into your’s and your friends pockets. and call it a 5 point plan…..  We’ve been there, Mr. 5 Point Plan, and we aren’t going back again Mr. ex-President Bush,   or is it Mr.  ex-presidential hopeful  Senator John McCain,  or is it the shape-shifting Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, one day a moderate and the next Attilla the Hun.. … Doesn’t really matter who it is, it’s exactly the same plan… no matter whose face it is wearing…

America, we have seen what works.  We have seen what doesn’t..  We’ve won our regular season…  They lost…  We got just one more big game, and then….  It’s time to take this country off to the playoffs….
