The debate question Romney can’t answer?

Ed Kilgore at DC Monthly says President Obama should ask Mitt Romney this killer question for which (Ed thinks) there is no good comeback. This is the debate question Romney can’t answer:

“Governor Romney, how exactly do your economic policies differ from those of George W. Bush?”

Liberals are so dumb. I would love to be asked that question.

Here’s my comeback: “Honestly Mr. President, I’m still trying to figure out how your policies are any different from George W. Bush’s.”

I would also have loved it if Lloyd Bentsen had said to me: “Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy, I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of my, Senator you’re no Jack Kennedy.” 

Here’s my comeback:  Wait for the audience to quiet. “Well, for that  my wife has reason to be thankful, (long pause) but let’s just say you’re absolutely right sir. I am no Jack Kennedy and clearly no Loyd Bentsen either. That’s two for me, two for my wife, and none for you.”
