Poor Mitt Romney. He might have the picture-perfect Hollywood looks of a president, but he keeps stumbling, bumbling, and fumbling along the campaign trail like he’s in a Three Stooges slapstick comedy.

He recently traveled to Elyria, Ohio, for example, for a carefully-staged photo-op meant to cast him as an economic heavyweight, while simultaneously portraying President Obama as a pratfalling economic lightweight. To give Romney’s show a powerful punch, it was set in a closed drywall plant owned by the National Gypsum Company. This starkly-vacant scene, plus Romney’s dark vision, delivered the desired message: Obama’s policies equal abandoned factories and lost jobs.
