Obama: ‘We Tried Our Plan, And It Worked.’
National Review ^ | 7-26-2012 | Jim Geraghty

Obama: ‘We Tried Our Plan, And It Worked.’

Jim Geraghty

As stressful as “You didn’t build that” appears for the Obama camp, I think this presidential assertion is going to be more damaging:


VIDEO LINK

Forty-one straight months of unemployment above 8 percent,  8.2 million people working part-time who want full-time work, a record 88 million Americans not in the labor force, 1.9 percent GDP growth in the past quarter, more bad GDP numbers expected tomorrow, a stagnant housing market, $5 trillion in new debt, the downgrading of the U.S. credit rating,  38 percent of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, 45 million Americans on food stamps, food prices continuing to increase dramatically, the poverty level likely to rise to the highest level in nearly fifty years

… and this means the plan “worked”?!?

Between “the private sector is doing fine,” “you didn’t build that” and “we tried our plan, and it worked,” the president sounds unhinged.

I said this yesterday but these ads write themselves. Geraghty lays them all out. Rattle off all of the bad economic data followed by Obama saying “Our Plan Worked”. It would be devastating.

It did work!

His plan was to kill freedom and free enterprise and replace it with Marxism...and things are going precisely according to plan!

If Zero's plan was to

1.) Destroy the American economy

2.) Divide the country by race and by class

3.) Set back race relations 50 years

4.) Dangerously weaken America's military

5.) Severely weaken America's foreign relations

Then yes I would agree ... his plan has worked. Otherwise his is delusional

There’s lies, damned lies, and (phony) statistics. Zer0 is a master at all three.

You didn’t build that.

Spread the wealth around.

The private sector is doing fine.

We tried our plan and it worked.

Obama: ‘We Tried Our Plan (fabricating Federal Grants for phony crony capitalist projects), And It Worked (we siphoned a ton of public money to my bundlers).’

Not really. He is not the problem. The part of the electorate that believes him is the problem.

When the population is as dumbed down as much of ours is, you don’t have to be that smart. You just have to promise free stuff and they’ll believe anything out of your mouth.

Obama's final plan looks something like this...

Obama's plan for America does not end well, and it's a rerun, a film we've seen before.

Nah Obama your plan didn’t work. About everything you buy is made somewhere else. Bring the jobs home to America.

Not to hijack the thread, but here's an idea for another ad for Romney:

Highlight the number of fundraisers and campaign events during the past six months (50? 60?),

Highlight the number of Jobs Council meetings in the past six months: ZERO

There's only one job that Barack Obama is concerned about: HIS.

You’ve got that right, CL. 30 years ago this guy would be a fly-spec on the political map, now that people have become complacent, dumbed down, and divided, we have this turd.
I can’t believe the polls. I can’t believe that people with any common sense would vote for this man again, after what he has done to the country. Then I see the MSN and realize he gets not one iota of bad press.
There is truly a disease in our country. Liberalism has taken a foot-hold, and dumbed down such a wide swath of people that feel government is the answer to all our problems. I don’t have a lot of hope for us any more.

His plan was to rip the American public off and it worked.

I believe that's not far off the mark, there's enough parallels that it's scary.

Obama Jivethon's Lying Circus' hilarious wild comic parody of an American administration, We Tried Our Plan, And It Worked. They make Monty Python's Flying Circus look positively gloomy.

Obama: ‘We Tried Our Plan, And It Worked.’

So did Stalin's....even though 20 million complied only because of military, political, and economic force aided by starvation. Really great plan!

That would make for a good ad.

BTW, you’re not hijacking the thread. The general theme is that Obumbler is unhinged and only concerned about himself. How to counter that is certainly worthy of posting and you have. :)

The fool doubtless signed on to exactly that plan, but really, the guy is just a frontman. The Alinskyite left that sheperded him along his whole life wrote the book. Bambi just moved the ball down the field. Now that he’s served his purpose, he’ll take the fall.

Ow!
Goose-steppin’ mama under-cover charge
Goose-step mama taken by and large
While you tinker with some tailor
someone soldier to a sailor
Goose-step mama
Oh yeah!
Goose-step mama
Goose-step mama boogie all night long
Goose-step mama you can do no wrong
You know how to reassemble
clumsy hands and knees that tremble
Goose-step mama
Oh yeah!
Goose-step mama
Wooo!

You’ve got something that makes you something
something tells me loud and clear
In the end it comes to nothing
You’ve got nothing to eins zwei drei vier

Goose-step mama with your rock ‘n roll
Goose-step mama with your heart of gold
You don’t like to see men suffer
Love is tough but life is tougher
Goose-step mama
Oh yeah!
Goose-step mama
Wow!

-The Rutles

Even if the plan failed, millions think it is a success. The people are too uninformed to make a good choice, even if a good choice were available.
