Sen. John McCain, right, joins Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at a campaign stop for Romney at the Boys & Girls Club in Salem, N.H., on Thursday.

Fresh off his historically narrow victory in Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses, Republican presidential pageant favorite Mitt Romney beefed up his attack rhetoric against his would-be opponent, Barack Obama, on Thursday by lashing out against the president’s latest big appointments. Romney’s leap of logic from “crony capitalist” to “job killer” seemed a bit spurious and hard to follow, which can mean only one thing: He’s ready for the campaign trail.  —KA

BostonHerald.com:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney unleashed a new assault on President Obama today, charging him with “crony capitalism” after he made three new appointments to the National Labor Relations Board—long hated by businesses who say the board favors unions.

“This president is a crony capitalist. He’s a job killer,” said Romney at a morning town hall in the Granite State. “This president said he wants to create green jobs, I think he wants to give jobs to the people who gave him the green.”

Herr Romney blames Obama when there’s a rise in
unemployment.  Herr Romney, on the other hand, does not
credit Obama when there’s a drop in unemployment.

As usual, Herr Romney would have it both ways.

In my many years of following the rhetoric of party
lines and their relationships (or lack of it)with the
average american (which if it could even be evaluated
by some measurable truth) might indicate that the
violations of human life and values have exceeded the
received and perceived results for our Nation not by
battling on the REAL ISSUES by rather living on their
own illusions,using the insults of the present and
resurrecting the dead issues of the past. Our hope is
not in the candidate but in PEOPLE as human beings
worthy of life,liberty and the pursuit of
happiness!History always repeats itself, and politics
and power are no different. Always remember that WE
THE PEOPLE are created with a desire to give, share
and believe in a way that promotes values that are
never really able to be taken away by a political
party or an individual!

I’m still waiting for the national media to explain how Romney, the corporate raider, killed off tens of thousands of jobs and stole pension money from the workers (all legal, of course).  Meanwhile, Romney claims he created a hundred thousand jobs all by himself…except they’re probably in Asia.
