Over the weekend Gov. Jon Huntsman (R-UT) dropped out of the race and endorsed Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) for President. In the process, he tried to eliminate all of the anti-Romney video he produced during the campaign, but as Taegan Goddard points out “nothing disappears from the internet” and the Democratic National Committee created this video from their archives.
Meanwhile, faced with criticism of his record at Bain Capital, Romney has dialed back his claims from “we helped create over 100,000 new jobs” to “we started a number of businesses, invested in many others, and that over all created tens of thousands jobs” and finally to Romney’s latest ad which claims “thousands of jobs”. Steve Benen wonders:
By next week, I expect Romney to tell us, “I probably created a handful of jobs.” The criticism and scrutiny of Romney’s record of mass private-sector layoffs appears to be taking a toll on the Republican’s rhetoric.
