Team Obama’s Latest Howler: Does Romney ‘even understand how our economy works?’

Posted by on Jul 24, 2012 at 9:20 am

Really, it can’t get any dumber than this. Is this really their pushback after Obama was exposed for his class warfare rhetoric? A guy who’s never held a private sector job is going to lecture a hugely successful businessman?

“Apart from the flagrant hypocrisy, these attack ads make you wonder – does he even understand how our economy works?,” Cutter asked in a web video released on Tuesday. “We build our businesses through hard work and initiative with public and private sectors working together to create a climate that helps us grow, President Obama knows that.”

Except, um, you didn’t build that.

    I’ll be honest with you.I have no clue how Obama’s grow the middle out economy works either which is one of the many reasons why I am voting him out.
    We need a president with a logical tact when dealing with the economy.

    It’s easy. Government taxes you and hires more government workers. Ta-Da! Jobs created. The higher the taxes, the more jobs created.
    Move on now, lesson over.

    “does he even understand how our economy works?”

    Let’s compare tenures:
    Unemployment in MA hit 4.7% during Romney’s time as governor, while unemployment nationally remains stuck at 8% during Obama’s and has never actually been all that much lower.

    So, who doesn’t have an idea of how our economy works? A better question, why on Earth would anyone on Team Obama invite such a comparison and counter-attack? Are they panicking so much that they fail to realize such amateur mistakes?
