New Romney ad: Secretary of Business?

posted at 11:21 am on November 1, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Professional politicians don’t usually throw their opponents a bone this big in the final week of an election — which is why this qualified as an Obamateurism yesterday, of course.  Truly professional politicians don’t bury the bone, either, but chew on it, and Mitt Romney delivers today in an ad attacking Barack Obama for going to his first instincts to deal with his failing economic policies:

Barack Obama recently said he might appoint a Secretary of Business.

His solution to everything is to add another bureaucrat.

Mitt Romney understands business and knows what it will take to create jobs and get our economy moving again.

He’s done it before.

He’ll do it again.

One point the ad doesn’t mention, but is worth making: even when Obama adds bureaucracies, he ignores them.  He created his own blue-ribbon panel to deal with the deficit, Simpson-Bowles, only to completely ignore their recommendations in his two successive budgets (neither of which got a single vote of support in Congress in three floor votes).  Obama formed a “jobs council” of CEOs and economists directly to the point of his “Secretary of Business” response, and then went several months without meeting with it.

That flub gave Romney a chance to hammer home his closing message on jobs and the economy.  It’s a good punch; we’ll see if it scores a knockout.

If Obama bothered having cabinet meetings or talking with his cabinet secretaries he’d already know we have a department of business. It’s called the Commerce Department but it seems he’s unfamiliar with it

I know it’s getting late in the game, but Romney seems to be able to roll out campaign ads at the drop of a hat.

I’m not sure if it is something he could use. Or would it be used against him by the libs saying that he’s anti immigrant?

I think we need a Secretary of Bureaucracy. The job of the secretary will be to coordinate the different bureaucracy and streamline their functions. All departments will report to him or her and provide detailed action plans, agendas, and goals for streamlining their departments and avoid unnecessary paperwork.

One of the first jobs of the Secretary of Bureaucracy will be to form a commission. The job of this commission will be to evaluate government commissions to ascertain their effectiveness. All commissions will have to report the SOB commission and hold regular meetings to explore ways of increasing efficiency and reduce unnecessary meetings.

With the growth of the Internet, the SOB will form a Web-based task force. The purpose of the Web-based task force will be to create a Web site exploring ways of making Web access more efficient. All government Web sites will have to create portals to interact with the SOB Web site. The SOB Web site will multicultural, multilingual, gender neutral, sexual preference inclusive, and handicapped accessible. All Web developers will coordinate their efforts with the SOB Web site to explore ways of making Web development more efficient with less overhead.

Another important task of the SOB will be to reduce the number of unnecessary meetings. Meetings will be held immediately and often to explore ways of reducing meetings.

PackerBronco on November 1, 2012 at 11:32 AM

Yeah, but a company Romney used to run tried to save some other company but eventually had to lay people off after Mitt left to go save the Olympics and there are people still pretty bummed over that because it’s not fair and Obama will be more fair when he becomes president so you should vote for him.

Wait, what? Obama has been president for 4 years? No way.

He also changed his registration from Independent to Republican. He loves Romney and Ryan. And this is a kid who supported Obama in 2008 and Kerry in 2004.

My 28-year-old nephew visited us this week on his way from Montana to a winter job in New York. He filled out his absentee ballot, straight Republican. He said he is a pretty hardcore Libertarian but did not want to waste his vote.

The R’s volunteering at the polls should count the number of people entering, preferably on record or aloud, and compare them with the total number coming out of the precinct. It will not stop cross-state or double voters, but will prevent ballot stuffing, which is the primary source of voting fraud in urban areas.

Mittens just brought Trump in to do robocalls for you.

That is the most desperate/pathetic thing I’ve ever heard.

Question is, will you continue to cheerlead for your country’s failures for another 4 years instead of manning up and putting on your big boy pants?

What’s wrong with a sec-biz? MORE people in the government working on the problem isn’t a bad thing. It means more heads going together brainstorming solutions.

I thought Members Only jackets were out of style.

I think they are about to change the brand to “Costco Members Only”.

Yeah, we’ll call it the Department of Economic Planning. Probably can find some good ex-Lobbyist to run it, you know somebody that has all the right connections to industry to really make this thing work for the good of society. Just for the duration of the current emergency of course. How about that Wesley Mouch guy I’ve seen on TV?
