Obama: We Tried Our Plan and It Worked

By Douglas V. Gibbs

First, like the Marxist he is, Obama gave us "You didn't build that" without government's help.
Now, he says the liberal left, through his presidency, tried their plan and it worked.


Let's see, even with their manipulations of the numbers, the unemployment rate is over eight percent (near twenty percent in reality), 88 million are out of the labor force, less than 2% GDP growth, a stagnant housing market, trillions of dollars in debt, unconstitutional executive orders, unconstitutional czars, unconstitutional regulations, a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating, 8.2 million people underemployed, 45 million Americans on Food Stamps and the democrats are trying to increase that number with ads, poverty worsening. . . and this guy says his plan worked?

On what planet?

Okay, so let's see - he has said the private sector is doing fine, you didn’t build that, and now “we tried our plan, and it worked.” Talk about out of touch not just with the American People, but with reality.

Liberalism truly is a mental disorder.

Most voters - particularly low-information "independents" - like to claim that the don't like negative political campaigning/advertising. It's transparent halo-polishing, because if their proffered sentiments were genuine, then negative campaigning/advertising wouldn't work, and political campaigns wouldn't employ it so eagerly.

The reason it works is simple: to raise doubts about "the other guy". Take Bill Clinton's Mediscare fusillade in 1996. It's point wasn't to actually make voters believe that Bob Dole was the devil incarnate, come to abolish Medicare, take away Granny's Alpo, a flame-thrower to her snow bank, and drag her off to hell. The point was to make people hesitant to give New Gingrich and the GOP Congress cart blanche to *maybe*, *possibly* "cut" Medicare. For low-information voters, such doubts are all you need to plant in their sterile minds. That wasn't the only reason that Dole lost - there were a panoply of them - but this was near or at the top of the list.

Red Barry has been trying to do this to Mitt Romney - or "kill" him, in Obamunists' "civil" parlance - but it hasn't worked. Why? Because what they consider to be epithetical - "Rich," "Businessman," etc. - isn't axiomatically negative outside the extreme Left. Actually, to most Americans, having a successful CEO with what even Sick Willie called a "sterling business record" in the White House sounds pretty darned good compared to the SCOMF "occupying" it now.

That's what makes what Jim Geraghty called O's "unholy trinity" of Kinsleyan gaffes the other side of that same coin. Rather than "vet" Romney as the mustachioed plutocrat from "Monopoly," what The One has actually done is vet himself as he never was four years ago. Coming on top of his disastrous record of over three years of (in reality) double-digit unemployment, de facto permanent depression, cosmic debt, all of it shoved down the collective throat of the public against its will - or what I like to call "governance by the double-extended-middle finger" - paired with all the BS pie-in-the-sky promises he made, it's the final nails in his electoral coffin.

There's only three months and change until Election Day. Far from it being just too late to turn around, the economy is actually deteriorating, and at an accelerated pace. Now he's given us a tripartite window into his Marxist-Alinskyist soul. And his forfeiture of credibility long ago caused the public to tune him out, depriving him of his erstwhile greatest strength: his supposed oratorical eloquence, and thus any chance to repair this critical self-inflicted damage.

This election is over. The only remaining questions are by how much Governor Romney will win, and will the Li'l ex-president go quietly.
