The unreported story that upsets me the most!
Obamas campaign speeches regularly contain the claims that:
1.Bushs tax cuts and de-regulation caused the recession, 2.Obama stopped the second Great Depression, 3.His policies are working, 4.A very slow recovery was inevitable, and 5.No one could have done any better.
Investors Business Daily columnist, John Merline, shows that these claims are false.

I tweeted this to a couple Romney campaign people last week. I saw the original article and found it to be the best, most comprehensible piece demolishing the Obama reelection campaign on the economy I’ve ever seen. It was incredible.
This is basically just a recap piece of the original.
