So, when Romney wins, how long do we wait before blaming him for the economy?

Since so many here already have their minds made up about not only who they are going to vote for, but are certain beyond any doubt who will win, it is time to move on.

Romney is an economic "genius" whose entire campaign is based on the idea that Obama didn't get the economic recovery going fast enough.

So how long should we wait until Romney deserves the same blame for not getting the economy going?

I did some searching to see how long various CP members gave Obama prior to blame:




6 months - petegz29
Biden doing damage control on economic situation

58 Days - HonestCheiffan- Obama It's not my fault, Blame Bush

51 days - patteeu (Velvet Jones and BucEyedPea agreeing)- Obama lied the economy died

39 days - memyselfI (and HCF and others agreeing) - 6000 here we come Yikes Doombama is tanking Wall Street

(-69) days - Bootlegged Obama elected market down 520 points

and (-101) days Bootlegged
http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showt...+blame+economy


So, what are the guidelines on how quickly to credit/blame Romney?

He'll need the first 6 months just to get that smell out of the White House.

I suspect many on here who were quick to point fingers at Obama(doesn't include you) will be a lot more "fair" to Romney and give him plenty of time to excuse himself.

A year into it Mitt and his wife will still be finding bristles from michelle's back in the carpet and drains. He's got to rise above that no matter how disconcerting it is.

Define "quick". Selling the country on an unemployment rate under 8% if an $800 billion stimulus was passed should expect scrutiny when it doesn't happen.

That was a myth. It was a forecast included in a government bureaucrat's assumption model. It wasn't campaigned upon or reduced to a promise in a speech or anything. (bear in mind I was anti-stimulus as designed).

Mitt Romney has many such promises, including the magical reduction of the deficit while increasing defense spending and cutting tax rates massively. He offers few details though, so I assume he will want wiggle room on those when they fail.

He's also made many statements like "In Year one I will do x" or "On day 1 I will do y"

Well, since Obama is still shifting blame to Bush, I suppose you would have to wait at least four years.

It isn't a myth. Sending your minions out in the national media to sell an idea then not walking it back makes you just as guilty IMO.

I'm not aware of any public/media relations effort to sell the plan with a promise of under 8% unemployment. Was there a particular effort that I missed?

Yeah really every democrat is not allowed to say a thing until 4 years from now.

Cause Romney can just say that it was Obamas fault. If they can't accept that ten they admit to their hypocritical views

However, as a republican I give Romney 2 years. I'd he hasn't put forth at least half of what he sai he will then he deserves to be voted out in 2016.
