Romney blowing too much smoke.

Mitt Romney, the front runner in the Republican Party nomination race is not pulling punches, with respect to a new Obama campaign advertisement, calling it "an infomercial", among other things.

He is always giving the impression that he is the one better to solve the nation's economic woes more efficiently than any of his colleagues running in the race; however, there is no actual proof that he can.

He then jumps over the political fence and attacks President Barack Obama's campaign strategy to enumerate his achievements and accomplishment, since he took office. The extraordinary, and burdensome effort to pull the economy from the abyss of disaster during his first two years at the White House, are somewhat inculcated in that advert.

Then comes out Romney to pull the wool over the eyes of the American people that he has managed a few businesses and also the 2002 Winter Olympics games and so he is a genuine challenger for Obama in the 2012 presidential election.

He has to bypass his rivals in that contest to place himself as the alternative person "to put the economy back on track," as he has often been alleging all along on the campaign trail. He is somehow making it look like the Republican Party nomination is his to take.

Nobody can deny that he has propped up some businesses and stopped them from going under; but his methodology to do so has not always been right. He has also failed miserably in other ventures, and so his record has really not been one to write home about.

With his attack on the Obama advert, he is merely throwing dust and creating a cloud of uncertainty to undermine the the truth in it. That he (Obama) has struggled with the economy and high unemployment until now, and that his efforts are beginning to bear fruit; of which the mainstream media are witnesses.

That is the real truth, as the country has come a long way from an economic situation comparable to the depression of the dust bowl era of the 1930s. A recovery is underway and the unemployment rate is gradually going down under Obama, and therefore he, Obama, has every right to be proud and to talk about his goals so far.

Romney's own closest rival in the Republican race, Santorum, is not even trustworthy of him (Romney), and though as a political colleague, he (Santorum) has this to say about him, "Gov. Romney reinvents himself for whatever the political occasion calls for." (Huff Post, 02/10/12).

He may blow as much smoke in the campaign as he likes, but voters will be able to see through it and choose the person, who is doing the job right or the person, who is just making promises that he will (in the future) do it right.

Can Romney be trusted to do a better job? Many Americans doubt it.

      I can't stand when campaigns do bad mouthing or mud tossing. Makes me think of a child having a tantrum.
