James Carville’s polling firm to Obama: Nobody believes that the economy’s recovering anymore
Hot Air ^ | 6/12/12 | Allahpundit

Posted on 06/12/2012 6:20:53 PM PDT by Nachum

Tough stuff from Team Serpenthead. What’s a president to do when he can’t run on the idea that America’s better off now than it was four years ago? Simple. Run on the idea that America will be better off four years from now if it gives him another term. 2008: The future is now. 2012: No, wait, we mean the future is now.

Hope and change — they’re always a day away.

What is clear from this fresh look at public consciousness on the economy is how difficult this period has been for both non-college-educated and college-educated voters – and how vulnerable the prevailing narratives articulated by national Democratic leaders are. We will face an impossible headwind in November if we do not move to a new narrative, one that contextualizes the recovery but, more importantly, focuses on what we will do to make a better future for the middle class.

It is elites who are creating a conventional wisdom that an incumbent president must run on his economic performance – and therefore must convince voters that things are moving in the right direction. They are wrong, and that will fail. The voters are very sophisticated about the character of the economy; they know who is mainly responsible for what went wrong and they are hungry to hear the President talk about the future. They know we are in a new normal where life is a struggle – and convincing them that things are good enough for those who have found jobs is a fool’s errand. They want to know the plans for making things better in a serious way – not just focused on finishing up the work of the recovery…

Back in 2009, OZERO took an economy that was om the verge of going bad and created a DISASTER with his big tax hikes and spending binge. It will take years to recover from the damage.

I’m getting a kick out of the price of gas coming down. $3.49 here. This started after Barry said there was absolutely nothing he could do to bring cost of gasoline down. LOL! Way to go Barry. You should have kept your big mouth shut.

Bob Beckel was on Fox news this morning and stated, but without much enthusiasm, that Americans are better off today then they were four years ago. It was really pathetic to watch that liberal goon trying to sell that drivel.

President Choom Brother says the private sector is doing fine.

Oops, that huge idiotic lie didn’t work. Blew up in his face, big time, politically.

So he told the opposite to see if that continued to fool his faithful idiot followers.

It probably will. Because some of them will believe whatever he tells them, even if it’s the opposite from the previous day.

Choom on, Choom Brother. The lemmings are sure to follow.

“I got cussed out on facebook because I shared an article about obama girl from 2008 is not backing obama this time.”

That is because the Truth burns like fire for those not use to hearing it. imagine the Truth of God and how it will burn those who have rejected his Truth, sort of like being in Hell for eternity I think.

I honestly believe that if Romney is elected, he streamlines Federal Tax Regulations lowering rates and eliminating loop holes. He reigns in the EPA (fire a vast majority of those in the department and reduce their funding by 50% or more) and eliminates regulations. The economy will quickly recover.

If he unshackles the oil producers and ramps up production, the economy will boom!It only took 18 months for the economy to turn around AFTER Reagan pushed through his plans, Over the objections of his ‘friend’ Tip (drunken Lout) O’Neal. By the time he ran for reelection the economy was growing at close to double digits in GDP growth and millions of NEW jobs where added to the economy!

I can’t imagine, or maybe I just don’t want to, what it must be like to have to lie constantly and to always have to fear that someone in the media is going to say out loud what everybody already knows and then to have to personally attack anyone who tells the truth. All it would take is for someone in the dominant liberal media to turn on him and cry that the emperor has no clothes and it would be over.

focuses on what we will do to make a better future for the middle class.

That's the LAST thing they want to do, provide specifics. Obama has campaigned for 5 years now and has yet to offer any concrete solutions. Anytime he gets anywhere near a detail folks can instantly recognize, "hey, that's not gonna work!"

Anyone with a half brain would know What Barry meant was there was absolutely nothing he wanted to do to bring cost of gasoline down.

At the present oil is now in a state of surplus and the price is falling. Barry can't be too pleased about that, but before the election he will swallow his pride and take credit.

We also should be dismantling the entire ridiculous edifice of unionized state and local government “services” that we don’t need. This country did fine in the days before we had big, over-paid police departments, for example. These days, we spend BILLIONS on “law enforcement” yet crime keeps soaring by the year. That’s because the police unions, the liberal judges, public defenders, communist social workers, etc. have no interest in “fighting crime.” They NEED crime in order to justify their bloated salaries, gold-plated benefits and fat pensions. I say dismantle the whole thing and go back to the principle that YOU protect YOUR place, I protect MY place and what few cops we need have a lot of ... latitude... to deal with the bad guys.

Same thing with teachers. Back when America made sense, teaching was something we trusted young, Christian women to do for a few years before they got married. We didn’t pay them much, but they could teach the kids to to arithmetic, write and read the Holy Bible. When teaching became a “profession” it started attracting liberal parasites whose main goal was to indulge their own vanities, collect outrageous and — again — get a ridiculous benefits and a huge pension that keeps them on our payroll for life.

The only people better off today than 4 years ago are the Prisoners at Guantanamo.

Wait till the truth comes out about how bad and corrupt Obama’s White house has become. I think it will be the worst since Grant. He will become a terrible joke.
