Lord knows this guy has failed at everything in life, but maybe he should try stand-up comedy. I mean, really, this stuff is knee-slapping material. And hey, what better time for a distraction than after the worst possible foreign policy week possible?
A new ad released Saturday by President Obama’s campaign represents the strongest retort yet to Republican candidate Mitt Romney’s question about whether Americans are better off today than when Obama took office.
The ad, titled “The Question,” recaps the 4.4 million jobs lost during George W. Bush’s last year in office, adding that the economy has now seen 30 straight months of private sector job growth.
It goes on to contrast Obama’s proposed tax hike on families making more than $250,000 a year with Romney’s stated goal of cutting the income tax by 20 percent and closing loopholes in the code, moves which some independent tax analysts say would raise the tax burden on the middle class.
“The real question is: Whose plan is better for you?,” says the ad.
The minute-long video features excerpts of convention speeches by Obama and former President Bill Clinton defending the first term record and vowing not to return to Republican economic policies that Democrats blame for the recession.
This moron obviously hasn’t been food shopping or by a gas station any time lately. It’s laughable he’d try this strategy, but the bankrupt media will let him get away with it. Part of the medi push is demoralizing you with dubious poll numbers.
But despite the jobs data, polls post-convention show Obama expanding his lead nationally and in key swing states. A New York Times/CBS poll released Friday shows Obama up 3 points, with Gallup’s daily tracking poll showing him up 6 and Reuters-Ipsos placing him ahead 7 over Romney.
Of course they ignore reliable polls where Romney is leading,
