Yes, that's right, 2007-2009 is the "Obama Recovery" because Barack Obama was actually elected President in 2006, it's just nobody knew about that except for Mitt Romney. No, really. Time machine, a calculator and three llamas. All he needed. I read it on the Internet under "Mitt Romney Thinks Voters Are Complete Idiots."
Gotta love how Obama's getting pinned for losing jobs in 2007 and 2008, right? You know, while Bush was President? Team Romney's explanation:
And the Romney folks say that's not what they did at all. They suggest critics take a look at the legend, which explains that the red line represents the recession (the 2007-2009) and the blue line is the 24 months after the recession was over -- in this case, 2009-2011 when Obama was fully in charge.
Right. Sure, that makes perfect sense. And a guy who can't even give a plausible explanation for what caused and WHO caused the recession is supposed to have a brilliant plan to save us if only we elect him.
Gosh, I feel more confident already.
