Democrat: “It’s hard to sell that we’re in this mess because of Bush and the Europeans”

Barack Obama

Sure, it’s hard to keep peddling the canard that Obama’s dreadful economy is Bush’s fault. But that won’t stop them from still trying to sell that bullshit. Following Friday’s abysmal jobs report, the talk turned to how it enables Mitt Romney to distract from ObamaCare or something. Sure, keep telling us that.

After a lousy week marked by yet another flip-flop — his Massachusetts health care plan wasn’t a tax until GOP hardliners forced him to reverse himself — Romney is finally off the defensive — and President Obama is back in the unenviable position of explaining why the sluggish economy isn’t his fault.

“We think health care will help us rally our base,” a Romney strategist told the Daily News, “but every day the narrative stays on the economy is a day we win.”

A Democratic counterpart didn’t disagree.

“When you’re explaining, you’re losing,” he glumly noted, citing a hoary electoral proverb. “It’s hard to sell that we’re in this mess because of (George W.) Bush and the Europeans — even if it’s true.”

The June numbers aren’t good, which is why Obama handlers predictably argue that not too much should be read into them. But there’s no way to spin away the sobering reality that private-sector job creation has tanked — now we’re creating jobs at just one-third the average for the first three months this year.

Worse for Obama, with only four more months’ worth of numbers before the election, it’s growing late in the election cycle for a dramatic move upwards.

Yet the numbers aren’t catastrophic; the economy is still growing, just not enough for Obama to claim bragging rights.

Eight years ago when unemployment was way lower and more jobs were created, some clown from Chicago told us how awful it was. His name? Why, Barack Obama, of course.

    Considering that fifty-two percent of Americans were stupid enough to buy into the democrat bullshit in 2008 the donkeys WILL play the same hand again. Hopefully enough of the idiots who voted for the Kenyan empty suit will wise up. I have my doubts but one can always hope.

    I’m still amazed this fake composite asshole masquerading as president hasn’t been impeached and convicted. It’s a monument to the fear the average politician has of being labeled a racist. If Omama were a white man he would have been gone a year ago. His transgressions against the Constitution make Nixon look like a girl scout. Never underestimate “white guilt”.

    It’s hard to sell anything when you’re an idiot. It’s harder still when you gleefully blamed everything, including double yoked eggs on W, but now you want to pretend that it’s a small world after all. It might have helped if you hadn’t pretended that you’ve been living under a rock since 2000 and “didn’t know how bad things were” until you finished settlement and took the keys to Marine One.

    Well, it’s also a hard sell because it’s inaccurate. Obama’s porkulus and healthcare tax have put so much pressure on job creators, they can’t properly function. And let’s all remember, when Bush left office, unemployment was around 6% and the country was enjoying a AAA credit rating.

    It also doesn’t help that some loud-mouthed moron claimed in 2004 that adding 350,000 jobs per month is a bad sign for the economy, but adding 80,000 in 2012 is “a step in the right direction.” Wow, I hope that guy gets fired for being such an idiot. ;)

    W0rst president ever.

    It’s good thing that 95% of the MSM are big-gov totalitarians or Obama would be in the mid teens. Of course their viewpoints don’t affect what they propagandize, just ask them…or Obama.

    Just like they will keep demanding business records on Romney’s off-shore accounts to distract from the fact that right now, more Americans want to see Odrama Queen’s Documents than there were American Citizens who ever voted for Odrama Queen. We want to see his Forensically investigated Birth Certificate, his school records, his Passports – all of them – his adoption records, his college records and transcripts and diplomas, his law license and Michelle’s and the documents on why they relinquished their law licenses, and documents of the relationships they had with the Joyce Foundation, the Chicago Annenberg Foundation, the Chicago Climate Exchange, the Chicago Shore Bank, and the various other enterprises and fellow POLITICIANS who were also associated with each of these AT THE SAME TIME as Odrama Queen was.

    THEN we’ll decide if Romney has anything we feel NEEDS to be vetted as badly as Odrama Queen i9s SCREECHING FOR as he tries to distract from his own lack of transparency and the FACT that HE TOOK ON MORE TAX CHEATS into his White House Administration than all previous Administrations PUT TOGETHER.

    How many $$$Millions has Odrama Queen NOW spent to HIDE his Personal Documents? One article a few days ago said JUST ON HIDING HIS DOCUMENTS ALONE he has now spent $12 Billion – yeah – WITH A “B” BILLION!

    That would not surprise me considering the number of different cases he has managed to squash, and one of the last, also a few days ago, the Judge announced the Dim Party has the right to decide if their candidate is eligible or not, and that it is NOT up to the Constitution or the Law or the VOTERS AGREEMENT with LEGAL TERMS OF ELIGIBILITY and whether the candidate meets those provisions or not.

    Wow: Judge Says ‘Law’ Doesn’t Apply to Obama

    “A Circuit Court has decided that Florida election law applies to everyone but Barack Hussein Obama. In response to a suit brought by Florida resident and Democrat Party member Michael Voeltz challenging Obama’s eligibility to the Florida ballot, Circuit Court Judge Terry Lewis ruled that Florida election law “…is not applicable to the nomination of a candidate for Office of President of the United States.” This means that the Florida Statute which says, “the… nomination of any person to office…may be contested in the circuit court…by any elector or any taxpayer…” is null and void when it comes to Mr. Obama’s nomination to the presidency.”

    “It’s hard to sell that we’re in this mess because of (George W.) Bush and the Europeans — even if it’s true.”

    Problem is, it’s NOT.

    Someone needs to fling Fannie Mae back in the Democrats’ faces. That’s when this economic nightmare began.
