MITT ROMNEY for President 2012's blog listings. Feed Zend_Feed_Writer 1.10.8 (http://framework.zend.com) http://community.beliefnet.com/httpcommunity.beliefnet.com Romney Keeps Economic Focus with New Op-Ed Romney Keeps Economic Focus with New Op-Ed
As America's economic situation continues to worsen, Governor Romney penned an op-ed in the Boston Globe which placed much of the blame for our current economic situation on President Obama's policies.
Here's a excerpt from the piece, entitled  "Grow Jobs and Shrink Government":
      His policies are anti-investment, anti-jobs, and anti-growth. Raising taxes -- with a 15 percent hike on certain small business corporations, new taxes to pay for ObamaCare, and an increase on the dividend tax from 15 percent to nearly 40 percent -- depresses new investment throughout the economy. Promoting an open-ended cap-and-trade tax dissuades expansion by employers in the energy sector. Bowing to the demands of unions to tilt the table in their favor -- with proposals for card check and mandatory arbitration as well as the installation of a labor stooge at the National Labor Relations Board -- chills new hiring.
The piece garnered praise from conservative circles for taking Obama to task for his economic policies and keeping the focus on substantive issues. Washington Post staff writer Chris Cillizza reacted to the op-ed in a blog entitled "Mitt Romney's Unswerving Economic Focus":
"Romney's message disciple -- it's the economy, stupid -- is also aimed at portraying him as the most serious candidate in the field, the candidate not distracted by the bright, shiny objects thrown at him on a near-daily basis by various interest groups and the media. It's an interesting (and smart) tactic."

Mitt contributes $17,500 &endorses 4 Oregon candidates Today, Mitt Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC announced the endorsement of the following four Oregon candidates and said it is contributing a total of $17,500 to their campaigns:
 
Chris Dudley: Chris Dudley, a successful businessman, philanthropist, and former professional basketball player, is running to become Oregon’s next Governor. For more information about him and his campaign, visitwww.chrisdudley.com.
Congressman Greg Walden: Congressman Greg Walden currently represents the 2nd Congressional District of Oregon and is running for reelection. For more information about him and his campaign, visitwww.waldenforcongress.com.
State Representative Scott Bruun: Scott Bruun, a state representative and businessman, is running to represent Oregon’s 5th Congressional District. For more information about him and his campaign, visitwww.joinscott.com.
Rob Cornilles: Rob Cornilles, a successful business owner and active community leader, is running to represent Oregon’s 1st Congressional District. For more information about him and his campaign, visitwww.cornillesforcongress.com.
 
The PAC also announced that it is sending Dudley’s gubernatorial campaign a $10,000 contribution, and that it is sending the Congressional campaigns of Walden, Bruun, and Cornilles each a $2,500 contribution. 
 
 “Rather than enacting pro-growth policies that will encourage private sector growth and put people back to work, far too many of our leaders are instead turning to the false promises of big government and slowing our economic recovery. Oregon – and our nation – needs leaders who will say no to the culture of higher taxes, higher spending, and higher debt, and that is why I am proud to stand with these candidates today,” said Romney.
