Hilarious: Obama Swing-State Ad Claims Voters Better Off Than Four Years Ago

Barack Obama

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,

    The one good thing about this national security fiasco is that Obama is finally willing to talk about the economy. I guess even Obamanomics looks good compared to American fecklessness in the face of the entire muslim world’s self-immolation.

    Mr. Romney’s campaign now has a feeling of desperation.
    This perception drives him to say more and more desperate things.
    It is like an airplane going into a tailspin.
    Very hard to pull out of such a downward spiral.

    I’m doing much better than I was 4 years ago. My wife is doing much better. Most of the people I know are doing much better. Are we doing something right, or are those of you who are worse off doing something wrong?

    Geepers mister, are you buying gas at some special place? Or groceries? Do you have investments that aren’t being effected by the artificial low interest rates? Do you not have any relatives employed overseas by the State department? Or the US military? All of your relatives are dodging the high unemployment? Good to know.

    Gas prices are actually hit their high point 4 years ago in 2008. They have been fluctuating since, but never reached the high levels of 4 years ago. Groceries are about the same. I’m making a lot more. A whole lot more. The stock market has also rebounded and is higher than it was 4 years ago. No relatives in the military or working for the government. Mostly doctors, engineers, and scientists. And yes, all my relatives (And almost all of my acquaintances) are dodging the high unemployment. Actually the company I worked for went under back in 2008, but I worked two part time jobs while going back to business school and ended up with another, and much better, position at another company.

    Jobs and opportunities are out there.
