Make him run on his record.
Via American Power, with hat tips to The First Street Journal and Pirate’s Cove, here’s an ad from the Romney campaign that takes the recent awful jobs report and does the one thing President Obama doesn’t want — hold him accountable:
And if you want a graphical account of just how bad the economy has been under Obama and the Democrats (1), here’s a chart comparing job losses and recovery for every post-WWII recession:

Forget the fake “Republican war on women” and the class warfare and Romney’s dog and all the rest. They’re just distractions. Cries of “Elvis!” Squirrels meant to make us look anywhere but where we as citizens and voters should be focused: on the economy and Obama’s record. (2)
If nothing else moves us –not the cronyism and corruption, not the growing regulatory Leviathan, not the sniveling weakness in foreign affairs, not the contempt for the law and the Constitution– at the very least, and by Obama’s own standard, his performance on the most important issue to most Americans, the economy and jobs, should make us vote to send him into retirement.
Don’t let yourself be distracted. Hold Barack Obama accountable.
Make him cry.
PS: Romney 2012.
(1) Yeah, I know. “He inherited the greatest crisis since the Great Depression from Bush!!” Grow up. The Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress from January, 2007, through January, 2011. They continue to control the Senate, and they’ve had the presidency since January, 2009. They own this so-called “recovery.”
(2) Want more proof that Obama’s term is the second term of Jimmy Carter? The number of people participating in the labor force –that is, actually looking for work– is the lowest since 1981. Thanks to Obama and the Democrats, people are just giving up.
