Double down on stupid.
Via The Hill:
Former White House Press Secretary and Obama adviser Robert Gibbs dismissed Mitt Romney as no “economic savior” Sunday.
Top advisers to both the president and his GOP challenger sparred on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” continuing the argument what voters should take from Romney’s long tenure at private equity firm Bain Capital.
Gibbs kept up the president’s line of attack, arguing that Romney’s time investing in some companies, some of which ended up failing, does not qualify him to claim a profound understanding of what the economy needs.
He said his time at Bain is “the central and only point that Romney brings up. . . that would make him an economic savior.”
“What Bain Capital never did was focus on job creation, that’s not what Bain Capital does. It loads up companies with debt, it takes money out of those companies and pays those investors,” he added. “It’s not about job creation, and that is what Mitt Romney is running on.”
