Five years ago congress said that to open government oil properties to allow oil companies to drill would be useless because it would take at least five years to be productive. Good goin' congress. We are still buying oil from countries who raise their oil prices which raises our food prices and kills jobs. We need someone in the oval office who has proof of accomplishment. Obama has proof of having a mouth and nothing else. My idea of Togetherness is not standing in a soup line and the rich serving.
One of Romney's great skills is the ability to turn around failing enterprises. He did it with private firms while he ran Bain Capital; he did it for an indebted Massachusetts and he did it for the Olympics. He needs to do it for his campaign now.

Neil Newhouse, Romney's pollster, attempted to soothe worried Republicans last week by stressing that the race remains extremely close. But the fact that Romney's pollster isn't worried is itself worrying. By rights, Romney should be 10 points ahead. They seem to think the bad economy will automatically win this race for the Republican.
