-- Mitt Romney, at a press conference in June 2006 saying reporters were unfair to hold him accountable for disappointing jobs data.

When he was right, he was right.
So long since that was true, unfortunately.

What a veritable flood of good information you folks are !!!
You are right, he was whining and Obama took great notes. It is a shame to see you support Obama's whining and chastise Romney for paving the way.

That's where you are wrong,<u> he wasn't whining. He was stating a fact.</u>

Whining, if that's what you wish to claim (it wasn't whining), about some childish reporters' theories that once elected, everything necessary to change an ECONOMY can be done immediately. That's untrue, and as Romney is quoted to say, silly.
It's more a dishonest attack than a realistic question, unless the reporters were wholly unknowledgeable (as they may well have been, of course).

Actually, my post would have been first! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif I was writing a long reply to egor and then thought, what's the point. No amount of logic or facts can affect him. He has proved that time and time again.

I didn't know if that would translate as what I learned to say when things were said at the same time, as a kid.
Yes, you did beat me, although not until I had hit 'post,' when I then saw your reply ahead of me. At the time, the board showed about 10 seconds difference for the posts.
