This Railroad Retirement issue has been boiling just under the surface for months now – I first reported on it back in August when I ran the piece “Breaking: Obama Attacking Romney On Railroad Retirement, The Biggest Stealth Issue Of The 2012 Election.“ Since then I have been amazed the traffic it continues to receive.
This piece has been sitting on the back bench over at im41 quietly getting thousands of hits, but when checking the blog traffic — as most bloggers do — I noticed that the thread was getting a huge amount of hits from Gov – domains. Shorty after, Romney ran a rebuttal to the BLET lies at aboutMittRomney.com.
It is a complicated issue so I am not going to go into the details here, but I wanted to share it on Zilla’s blog because Romney has stepped up and put this potentially election changing controversy to rest.
Now every railroader (tons of swing state voters) who reads the clarification will likely change their vote from Obama.
I have done a lot of work on this, but I would love pass the baton to someone more well-read like Stacy McCain.It would be well worth someone’s effort.
Just to give you an idea as to the story’s potential, my thread has received over 300 “Facebook Likes.” That is unheard of for a little 1500 to 2000 daily hit blog like im41.com.
Zilla – when you feel like it, please pass this along to your contacts.
Thank you (Also I added your eagle to the Conservative Blogs Central banner. I hope you don’t mind. I consider it the highest praise I can give a fellow blogger)
