Economists For Obama? WHICH Economists?

Huffington Post said that "Economists Back Obama", then the story that followed stated they were "business executives from Europe, NOT economists.

LONDON, Aug 17 (Reuters) - "Twice as many business executives around the world say the global economy will prosper better if incumbent U.S. president Barack Obama wins the next election than if his Republican challenger Mitt Romney does, a poll showed on Friday. Obama was chosen by 42.7 percent in the 1,700 respondent poll, compared with 20.5 percent for Romney. The rest said "neither".

[Bill's Note: So, what this says is that European "business executives", all of whom have successfully destroyed their own countries economically with their liberal, entitlement policies, think Obama is the better person to be president. This, in itself, is reason enough to vote for Romney.]

The lamestream media went on to say, "Romney's choice for running mate gave him no immediate boost to his White House prospects, a Reuters/Ipsos poll suggested on Monday."

That's strange - I have seen most polls, and the vast majority show a substantial boost for the Romney/Ryan ticket. Since Romney announced his VP pck, contributions surged into the millions, and most "swing states" now show Romney with a lead. Sounds to me like the lamestream media and thier biased pollsters are trying to convince us that things are rosey for Obama, in the hope that conservatives will figure they may as well not even vote, that it would be a waste of time.

MEANWHILE... a group of over 400 American economists - 5 of which are Nobel Laureates - have backed the Romney/Ryan plan. But you won't hear THAT from the lamestream media.

The economists who signed on to the pro-Romney statement said, "We enthusiastically endorse Governor Mitt Romney's economic plan to create jobs and restore economic growth while returning America to its tradition of economic freedom."

Romney's plan, they said, "is based on proven principles: a more contained and less intrusive federal government, a greater reliance on the private sector, a broad expansion of opportunity without government favors for special interests, and respect for the rule of law including the decision-making authority of states and localities."

"In sum," they say, the Romney economic plan "is far superior for creating economic growth and jobs than the actions and interventions President Obama has taken or plans to take in the future."

Well, folks, I have said this before - in spite of every pundit that says this will be a close race, I still think it will almost be a landslide for Romney.
