Obama's Mitt Romney ad sounds like a Polish joke on the one hand; and on the other, it is a perfect example of an out of touch presidency.
President Obama is calling attention in a television ad to Mitt Romney's tenure as Mass. Governor, but all he is really doing is begging the following embarrassing question about his own self:
Which is worse, 48 contiguous states suffering under the terrible economic failures of the Obama administration for the past four years, or one state governed by Romney suffering less than perfect economic conditions while Bush was in office?
The answer is going to kill the re-election campaign of the president, of course, and he should know it. It highlights all that's wrong with his administration: They remain clueless economically.
And if Romney is to blame for a poor economic performance during the height of the country's struggles under the Bush presidency, then 1) why does he think blaming Bush should justify his failures, and 2) what kind of picture does that paint of Obama four years later, after he's been able to throw money at the Bush problem in the trillions?
"It is the economy, stupid," and blaming a one-state governor for his four-year presidential errors just isn't going to cut it in Obama's Mitt Romney ad. The public isn't that dumb.
But it looks like this presidential re-election race choreographer might be. And according to USA Today, Obama thinks attacking Romney with old statistics (from 2003-2007) will somehow color Americans feelings about his current poor ones, like the 2012 stats that show the economy is still in the tank four years after he took office.
