3 Things to Tell Anyone Considering Voting for Mitt Romney


I know it’s hard to believe but Romney voters are out there. The key thing is to not argue with them. Arguing often makes people defend a position they don’t actually have.

So I suggest you just say this:

Well, things are much better off now than they were when Bush left them. 27 months of creating jobs. We’re out of Iraq and bin Laden is gone.

And then I’d add one of these Romney doubt macros:

1. In the last half century, the economy has produced 66 million private sector jobs— 42 million of them under Democratic presidents, 24 million under the Republicans. So you pick.

2. Mitt Romney plays a lower than 15% tax rate, probably about half yours, because of the Bush tax breaks for the rich, which he wants to increase. Those tax breaks for people who don’t need them put us trillions in debt and didn’t create one job. Do you really think Mitt Romney needs a tax break?

3. Mitt Romney is very rich and that’s great. But what he got rich doing was using downsizing and outsourcing to make huge fees for himself, often at the expense of workers. The last two businessman Presidents were Herbert Hoover and George W. Bush. Remember how they worked out?

What’s your best Romney doubt macro?
