Romney the Raider

As this article explains, Mitt Romney has been under fire for his time as as head of a private equity firm.

His rivals are attacking him for firing people. This is hilarious, given how this is exactly what Republicans are expecting the next President to do. Do they think cutting government spending will all come from more efficient cost controls? It is not possible. Federal workers will be affected. The next president will need the stomach for it.

Agree with your premise he was trying to deliver a message of strength and strength needed, but with campaigns turning on a dime depending on every single word spoken this is not a welcome situation for Mitt's staff to have to do damage control upon. At the end of the day, some simply focus on what was said rather than why it was said...or in what context.
