Mutt’s minions cite studies - out of context - to prove he has a plan to help the economy


Mutt’s campaign goons responded to the fire their taking from economic analysts by unleashing some artillery of their own.

The bombs were duds.

They released a paper by four decorated economists associated with the campaign — Glenn Hubbard, Greg Mankiw, John Taylor, and Kevin Hassett — that tried to lend some empirical backing to “The Romney Program for Economic Recovery, Growth, and Jobs.”


Economists to Romney campaign: That’s not what our research says


Even these studies that the Romney campaign’s economists handpicked to bolster their case don’t prove what Mutt’s minions say they prove.

And some of the key policy recommendations that flow from those studies are anathema to Mutt’s campaign. In perhaps the key policy area highlighted by these studies, the Mutt campaign doesn’t have a formal policy. (Anyone surprised?)

If this is the best they can do in support of their economic plan, it’s not likely to quiet the critics or anyone else who can read.
