I was watching Rmoney on the local Chicago ABC affiliate news last night railing against all failed Obama efforts to grow the economy, when the reporter noted that the owner of this manufacturing firm was a Rmoney supporter but admitted that his sales have grown 80% in the last year and he has hired new workers.  

Above the din inside the Acme Industries precision parts factory, Romney repeated his claim that after three-and-a-half years of 8 percent-plus unemployment, President Obama's economic policies are not working.

"The median income of an American family is down $4,000 a year since President Obama has been president," said Romney.

Even so, Acme Industries CEO Warren Young, an ardent Romney supporter, reports the company's sales increased 80 percent in the past year, and the factory has hired new workers.

"I think that's an indication that the Obama policies are working rather than the opposite," said Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston).

You know, that failed Obama economy on small business right?

First diary so apologies in advance for any errors!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
