The Obama campaign destroyed with one graphic

The Democrats are desperate to have this election focus on anything other than the rotten economy and Barack Obama’s miserable stewardship of it. Hence the flurry of “squirrels” we’re supposed to be distracted by: the fake “war on women;” Romney’s dog; same-sex marriage; and, oh, by the way, did you know Obama killed Osama? The troops are doing it “on my behalf.”

Anyway, the next time some Obamaton tries to convince you the election is about “social issues,” show them this, courtesy of The Pew Trusts (PDF):

Obama's record: people unemployed for more than a year.

That’s the equivalent of a two-by-four to the head of a stubborn mule.

Or an Obama supporter.

    ….b-b-b-but BUSH!

  2. Sefton says:

    The real eye-catcher; the trend line shows a 10% increase from 1970 to 2008…
    then it skyrockets 20% from 2008 to 2012.

    But Tango’s correct, the default excuse is the deniers cry.

  3. JoAnna says:

    Agreed with Tango and Sefton. Whenever I bring up Obama’s dismal economic record, the battle cry is, “He inherited a bad economy from Bush! It’s all Bush’s fault!”

  4. Drew the Infidel says:

    The “millionaires and billionaires, Granny over a cliff, blame Bush” party line and now these latest insults to the voters’ intelligence are already running out of steam and the election is still a full half-year away. What I see is a “war is won” mentality and a lack of a sense of urgency in the commiecrat ranks, as does James Carville. In the coaching sphere, these little stunts are called “bulletin board material”, inflaming the opponent.

    RE: ‘two-by-four’: The difference between the mule and Obama/obamatrons is that the mule will pay attention.
