Solyndra is to Obama as Bain Capital is to Mitt Romney. Neither political weakness is really sticking with the American public, but both campaigns feel the need to dredge it up repeatedly. It beats having a frank and healthy debate about the economy.
Earlier today, Mitt conducted a secret press conference at Solyndra headquarters. Why was it secret? Because Obama!
“The reason for keeping it quiet is because we knew if word got out that Solyndra would do everything in their power and the Obama administration would do everything in their power to stop us from having this news conference,” an aide said in a briefing en route.
What would Obama do? Place the Mitt Romney campaign on his kill list?
The press conference may be seen as tit-for-tat (tits and tats, both things that can disqualify a president) for David Axelrod's speech in Boston about Mitt's term as governor.
Axelrod called the press conference to hammer home the Obama campaign's critique of Romney's time as governor…
…Romney supporters who showed up for the event. Holding "Obama Isn’t Working" and other pro-Romney signs, they blew bubbles at the stage and loudly chanted, "Where are the jobs?" and "broken record."Blowing bubbles at the stage is the most adorable heckle. Obama supporters should retaliate by showing up to Romney events and throwing Corgis.
