PGH Quick Take – Mitt Romney Makes it Official!
Mitt Romney wows the
crowd camera with news that will come as a shock to, well, nobody. With a two and half men minute video, Charlie Mitt announces today that he is forming an “exploratory committee” to kick off his campaign for president of these here United States of America. And another shocker, he does it from New Hampshire. Politico has the full story.
Mitt’s theme appears to be “President Obama’s policies have failed.” Which seems like it might be a hard sell given that Obama took office inheriting a well-underway economic near-depression rivaling the big depression itself, then immediately slowed the job losses, and now is creating jobs, all while being fought tooth and nail by the Republicans (and some Democrats) in Congress. So I guess failure in Romney’s eyes is “Obama didn’t fix the mess we gave him fast enough.”
