Since this is Obama’s first time challenging the incumbent for the Presidency, I guess he can be forgiven for always harping on Romney’s record, how he’s bankrupting the country and . . . wait, it isn’t his first time running and Romney’s not the incumbent.
Doesn’t seem like it, does it? Obama is talking about how Mitt Romney wants to take us in the wrong direction, how his plan is going to ruin our economy, cost us jobs, put us into more debt.
Hmmm . . . sounds familiar, somehow.
But I know why he’s not talking about his record. Because he is talking about his record, only he’s calling it Romney’s future record.
When Obama took office, gas was only around $1.80 a gallon. It’s now over $3.50.
When Obama took office, unemployment was 7.8 percent. The real numbers show it’s over 10 percent, although even with the Whitehouse’s estimates, it’s 8.2.
When Obama took office, people on Welfare had the dignity of incorporating a work program into the monthly help they receive. With one fell swoop, Obama made sleeping sufficient for getting a check.
After Obama took office, a brand new all-time record low for new home sales was set. Then in 2009, again, another new all-time record low was set. Same thing in 2010, and another new record low in 2011.
Obama was the first President to walk out on an Israeli Prime Minister – Benjamin Netanyahu – showing gross disrespect to and for our only middle east Democratic allies .
So it’s no wonder he is running like he’s the challenger. He can’t speak of how great our economy is doing, he can’t boast of new housing starts, new jobs, new growth, lower living costs, lower gas prices, he can’t run on anything significant with regard to our economic status except to spew out the same scare tactics he tossed out when he was running the first time. It’s déjà vu. He simply parrots his old line of how Romney will be, “. . . uh . . . you know, uh . . . bad for the country!”
Hey Barack, way to send one right into the bull’s eye.
