Romney To Swing State Governors: Shut Up About All The Jobs

(Read the full article here: Romney To Swing State Governors: Shut Up About All The Jobs)

PoliticOlogy has reported before about the problem Mitt Romney is having campaigning against Barack Obama’s terrible economy in swing states where the economy is actually rebounding at above average rates.
