Yes, Mitt Romney Thinks We Need to Have More Drywall Factories

Paul Krugman:

Economics and Politics: Mitt Romney gave a speech at a closed Ohio drywall factory, which he tried to use as a symbol of Obama’s economic failure…. Even regular reporters noticed that the factory in question closed under, yes, George W. Bush — a fact Romney failed to mention…. What I didn’t see mentioned was the point that this was a drywall factory — that is, a supplier of a product largely used in home construction. It’s one thing to say that Obama should have revived the economy as a whole; it’s another to say that he should have brought back the housing bubble!
