Romney to GOP Governors: Shut-Up About the Improving Economy

The Romney campaign wants the Governors of Ohio, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin to shut-up about the improving economy and get on board with the Romney message that all is lost unless we elect Train-wreck Romney.

In fact, all is lost if Train-wreck Romney somehow gets himself into the White House, at which time he plans to strip away our  new rights to health care and raise income taxes on low income people by 60%.  (!)

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state’s economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee’s message that the nation is suffering under President Barack Obama, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Rick Scott, a Republican, was asked to say that the state’s jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency, according to the people, who asked not to be named. What’s unfolding in Florida highlights a dilemma for the Romney campaign: how to allow Republican governors to take credit for economic improvements in their states while faulting Obama’s stewardship of the national economy. Republican governors in Ohio, Virginia, Michigan and Wisconsin also have highlighted improving economies.
