Limerick Ode To Magical Mitt Romney

I like the way Paul Krugman sizes up Mitt Romney’s “plan” for our economy:

As many people have noticed, Mr. Romney’s five-point “economic plan” is very nearly substance-free. It vaguely suggests that he will pursue the same goals Republicans always pursue — weaker environmental protection, lower taxes on the wealthy. But it offers neither specifics nor any indication why returning to George W. Bush’s policies would cure a slump that began on Mr. Bush’s watch.

In his Boca Raton meeting with donors, however, Mr. Romney revealed his real plan, which is to rely on magic. “My own view is,” he declared, “if we win on November 6, there will be a great deal of optimism about the future of this country. We’ll see capital come back, and we’ll see — without actually doing anything — we’ll actually get a boost in the economy.”

Limerick Ode To Magical Mitt Romney

Paul has slashed Romney’s plan down to size:
The mere fact of Mitt’s win would give rise
To a positive feeling
And thus, fiscal healing.
Vote for Mitt — get a magic surprise.

    haha…yeah i think we tried that magic before,
    my guess is he’ll start a new war

  2. I like the idea of a “magic surprise.” As you probably know, Krugman has long attacked Paul Ryan’s budgets for their “magic asterisks.”

    “Magical thinking” is okay for children, but not a potential President of the United states.
