Skip to comments.The Left's Lamest Defense of Obama Yet

Politics: Liberals now say the president can't be blamed for the lousy recovery because he couldn't get his agenda enacted even when Democrats held a supermajority in Congress. And we should be confident in his leadership?
On the stump, Mitt Romney has started a new and very effective line of attack against Obama. "He got every piece of legislation he wanted passed, and it didn't work," Romney told Politico this week. "I think (voters) want someone who has a different record, and I do."
Paul Ryan used the same attack line in his first speech as Romney's VP pick. "No one disputes President Obama inherited a difficult situation," Ryan said. "And, in his first two years, with his party in complete control of Washington, he passed nearly every item on his agenda. But that didn't make things better."

Sounds like we need a different President then. Why double-down on failure?
Follow that with President Clinton worked with Newt Gingrich and the GOP to reduce spending, balance the budget and enact welfare reform.
President Obama is incapable of working with anyone.
How do you argue with imbeciles like that? Logic and facts obviously don’t even make a dent.
It isn’t that the summbich didn’t do anything, it’s that what he did made things worse. Way worse.
THE CHOOM GUY
Obama was a Choom guy,
Puff, puff, puff.
Fried his brain,
Sucking on his Nipple-weed
When things got tough,
Dumbing down his brain
To fit right in,
Getting into Politics,
Where there is no sin.
Then came the Con,
From Chi to DC,
Where incompetence can hide
AND be very PC.
Nobel Prize, and Corporate Jet,
Goes to the Choom guy,
Puff, puff, puff.
They obviously don’t want to admit that their ideology WAS implemented, full-bore, and it caused misery and poverty, not utopian success.
The agenda is more important than 0bama, so they’ll throw him under the bus in order to defend their ideology.
I received a great one on another forum,
“Ted Kennedy was only available to vote 74 days during the 2008-2010 elections.”
The Tea Party blocked the Senate from passing a budget.
It's not like their model was never tried. It was. It was called East Germany.
Romney is running a better campaign than I thought he would. Obama has been on his heels throughout.
