Poster boy for the 1%?

alsson:

“People ask me, `What would you to get the economy going’? and I say, `well look at what the president’s done, and do the opposite.”

— Mitt Romney

Now does that sound like a strategy, or a petulant candidate?

(via think-progress)

Both. Let’s let a real executive give it a whirl. We might actually have some collaborative leadership for the first time in decades.

By putting the poster boy for the 1%, an individual emblematic of the ditch derailing the Republicans and their banker buddies rigged up? By putting a guy into the nation’s executive suite who is surrounding himself with the same advisors and staffers that also aided and consulted the previous president, who arguably may be one the worst presidents to ever serve (who also touted his “business” acumen)?

Really? Seriously?

Do we want to relive that period of massive job losses (occurring under GWB watch, and after a few months into Obama’s term, abated, and reversed course)? Granted, rate of job recovery is not ideal, but at least it’s not nosediving like it was 2008-2009.

Let’s take a look at stock market performance under Bush, and then, now under Obama.
