How to Counter Obama's Blame Bush Argument
Romney's debate performance was so fantastic that it's easy to overlook one more thing he can do to complete the rhetorical, analytical, factual, and forensic demolition of the president's position on the economy.
"We tried that before", Obama says again and again in reference to Romney's economic perspective, presumably because it's easy enough for him to understand and because he thinks whipping up enough Bush hate can generate a victory even if all else fails.
If Bush was so bad, why did Obama rehire Bush's Fed Chairman, Mr. Ben Bernanke?
Look at Helicopter Benny these days! Just a couple of weeks ago he chased more moribund mortgage bonds with 45 billion in made-up dollars (sound familiar?) and said he'd no plans of stopping to boot.
Yep, if you're not tightly linked to federal politicians or New York banks, you'd better be a federal politician yourself if you expect to make any money in this economy.
Surely the genius knows what debt monetization is?
Isn't that what he was discussing with the Marxists and feminists at Occidental?
How can the president possibly explain his decision to retain the same ultra-powerful banker that ran the latter part of the Bush show, and then target Romney as backwards when Romney wants to get rid of the counterfeiter?
It gets even more delicious when one realizes that the reasonably foreseeable result of re-upping Bernanke was the accelerated enrichment of already engorged shadow bankers at the expense of people working for a living or looking for a job.
There's an election to win! Why not bubble up stocks by destroying more yield and savings? Plus, people on food stamps don't have savings, so they're getting their fair share by not losing anything.
As long as it's "cheap" now for the overmatched smirker to "borrow," everything's fine (he'll pay us back with sound money called SDR's when he's done working)!
Obama's relationship with the Federal Reserve and Wall Street is as dirty as any President's has been.
When you throw in the IMF, Obama proves to be dirtiest. Romney should say these things in as diplomatic a way as possible.
What can Obama say in response -- that Lenin told him he would need big banks?
What's the rare fail at Bain businesses next to the rapidly descending dollar?
