Obama campaign: Does Romney “even understand how our economy works?”

posted at 12:41 pm on July 24, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Steel yourself — these three minutes of relentless condescension, smarmy incredulity, and stunning misinformation are not easy to sit through.

I hardly know where to begin. Ed already handily addressed the Obama campaign’s continued and hackneyed insistence that Mitt Romney is taking his “you didn’t build that” line “out of context” — and I’m rather inclined to agree with Mitt Romney that the context makes the president’s remarks decidedly worse. I’ve been mentally tracking Obama’s various iterations of “the government more or less invented the Internet” since I first noticed it popping up during his 2011 State of the Union address; it’s a small admission, but it’s a clear and loaded indicator about how he thinks individuals’ success and our country’s prosperity are a magnanimous gift from the federal government.

The other money line from Ms. Cutter, however, ran thusly: “Apart from the flagrant hypocrisy, these attack ads make you wonder: Does he even understand how our economy works? We build our businesses through hard work and initiative with public and private sectors working together to create a climate that helps us grow. President Obama knows that.” Wow. I can’t fathom why they’re so eager to invite such obvious counter-punches, but here it is — President Obama’s policies have been running this economy for well over three years, and it is still in shambles. In fact, practically every indicator is currently heralding the United States’ decline back into recession, and no amount of “headwinds” or “inherited problems” is going to help Obama save face on that one.

Americans are hurting, and despite all of the Obama campaign’s attacks against Romney’s business record, it’s getting less easy to convince them that Obama is an effective steward of the economy. These days, with all of our big-government rules and regulations, it feels like the private sector is more often fighting the public sector for survival than working with it, and President Obama’s solutions always seem to involve more government. As Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has said, President Obama has never even run a lemonade stand — he had a comfy career in academia and limited time in the private sector before turning to community organizing and public office, and voters are more willing to trust Mitt Romney‘s experience on that score now that Obama has a record of mega-fail behind him. Nice try, though.

I can’t follow her. Her delivery is so impassive and the content flits from one thing to another without really explaining the significance. As an informed person, if I force myself to make sense of what she’s saying, I can figure out why it’s supposed to be significant…but who is this supposed to appeal to?

I can’t be mad at this it is so inane. Her words and delivery are so disconnected, her snort after “he didn’t say that” and her constant grinning prevent me me from taking her seriously. Putting on my Independent hat, I come away with a sense that there is a mishmash of stuff, that maybe Romney is being somehow a little hypocritical though I don’t recall how, and that Obama still wants to do really good stuff for the economy. To Obama, I say: more like this and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!

Crispian on July 24, 2012 at 3:34 PM

Or, taken the other way, if Romney is so “conservative,” why did he not support Reagan during the Reagan years as he himself admits, or why did he vote for Paul Tsongas in ’92 as a registered Democrat, or why does the company that he founded fund Democrats as you yourself concede? Curiouser and curiouser.

casuist on July 24, 2012 at 2:34 PM

There you go assuming “facts” not in evidence, again.

1. I am not nor have I ever been a Republican.

2. Other than 1988…when I was growing up in London…and Lady Thatcher was in 10 Downing…and I was 10 years old, I am not nor have I ever been a Conservative.

3. I am not nor have I ever been a “fan-girl” of Mitt Romney’s. In fact, I have been vetting and exposing Mitt Romney — along with Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, and others — on my blog for a very longer time.

I’ll see your Paul Tsongas and raise you:

Mitt Romney: Flip-Flopping Away, Flip-Flopping Away. You Know The Weaker Your Foundation, The More You’ll Be Flip-Flopping Away

M2RB: Paul Simon

Now, let me be perfectly clear, I didn’t go through the hassle of becoming an American citizen only to watch another Labourite-asshole like Barack Obama bankrupt my country, regulate and strangle the free market to death, and transform the countryty from one where the individual is emphasised to a government-centric society. If I wanted that, I would have just moved from Londonistan to Scotland or Wales where government spending accounts for around 75% of the economy, which is about as close as you can get without full-scale Sovietisation.

I’m a libertarian, but I will do whatever it takes to get Barack Obama out of the White House and, if you ever want to see abandon the Galt position that I took when Obama came into office, you had better hope that Romney wins. Until then:

FUND YOUR UTOPIA WITHOUT ME™

I can outlast Obama. Can you outlast more and more of people like me Going Galt? More importantly, can America survive 4 more years of Obama?

I have a fall-back plan and a parachute. Do you? Go ahead and reelect Obama. As they say, good luck with that, my dear chap!

On the other hand there is straight shooter (oh dear I used that word) Romney who has run a business and helped other business to be successful.
EEEEEEEKKKKKSSS!!!!!!

Well, by that statement she proves without a shadow of a doubt she is willing to lie and say anything to further her agenda.

I wonder what this “Democrat Operative” knows .. What qualifies HER to make a statement such as she did..

It is plainly obvious that Obama hasn’t the foggiest how the economy works.. Funny how people that have never even run a lemonade stand think they know more about business than a man who has been involved in business and sucessful at the highest levels most of his adult life..

The Democrats are a pathetic bunch of liars..

onomo on July 24, 2012 at 4:48 PM

Romney needs to start countering these videos. Let’s be honest about the appeal to the target market: white males between 18 and 35 (internet users). The video has apparently gone “viral,” however one defines that since different definitions apply across the net, because you have a relatively cute blonde woman who smiles and preens for the camera and explains how the evil Romney is lying about our President and how he “guts” companies rather than help them.

Of course, the bullet points she listed in favor of the President are throw aways – for example, Pell Grants? Really? Even the Washington Post is decrying the amount of debt students are getting into to go to school. Pell Grants are a drop in the bucket and this is what she offers as evidence of the President’s support of small business?

Yet, this is not what is important. The pretty woman nodding at me and telling me Romney is evil is what is important. I’m not trying to be sexist – if anything the ad is blantantly sexist because it is using the pretty blonde to explain things to us. Put Axelrod up there to say the exact same things and I’ll bet you the video doesn’t go viral. The Obama campaign knows this and that’s why sweet Ms. Cutter is giving us a lecture about something she knows nothing about. Ms. Cutter went to Smith, then straight to law school at Georgetown and then straight into politics, no stopping. She has never started a business, owned a business, run a business, employed anyone, hired anyone, (my guess is) fired anyone, or paid anyone a dime. Like most of the Obama administration, she is and always will be a government employee (or political or “non-profit,” which is the same thing.

Romney needs to get a truely intelligent, but attractive (because we have to play by these stupid rules) business woman out there who can explain why Ms. Cutter and the President are just dead wrong. Until he starts playing hardball, 21st Century style, he is going to lose this race.

studentofhistory on July 24, 2012 at 4:52 PM

Isn’t this the same chick that got into a heap of trouble a couple of weeks ago for calling Romney a felon? I would have assumed she was fired then. If this is the best the Obama campaign can hire this is going to be a landslide victory for Romney in November. I guess you have to be stupid to say any of this with a straight face like you believe it.

casuist on July 24, 2012 at 4:37 PM

You should care because I am a 34 year-old woman with a JD from an Ivy League law school, who used to pay a lot of Federal income taxes. Since Obama has been POTUS, I’ve been on strike and avoid Uncle Sam on Tax Day.

I have never taken a penny from the government nor will I. I can outlast Obama by simply living off of principal and arranging my affairs to avoid funding his utopian idiocy. In fact, this is exactly what I have done.

I am one of many and belong to an ever-growing network of people, who have gone dropped out and are on capital strikes. As our numbers grow, what happens to your tax bill, my dear?

Exactly. Like I said, I can outlast Obama. Can you?

PS: I don’t ask you to take responsibility for me at all nor will I ever. In the same vein, if Obama is reelected, I don’t want to hear your belly-aching over the next 4 years as your taxes increase and liberties decrease.

Dee2008 on July 24, 2012 at 5:11 PM

Again, I don’t think the particulars of what she is saying are important. Look at the bullet points she gives – their idiotic. She could have talked about the particulars of the stimulus, or the crowdfunding act, or any of the other irrelevant but great-sounding efforts of this administration. Instead, they chose education, small business tax cuts (which everyone knows are offset by the tax increases elsewhere) and infrastructure. Even college graduates stuck at home with their parents, jobless, don’t care about Pell Grants. The formula is: relatively pretty woman + somewhat smart talking economic banter = viral.

studentofhistory on July 24, 2012 at 5:22 PM

The irony coming from Osquanderer’s campaign is excruciating. I think Romney should use Overspender’s overspending in a campaign commercial as an example of his underwhelming knowledge of Econ 101: don’t spend more than you take in or you go Baroke. The campaigner-in-chief’s fundraiding stops now outnumber his golf dates something like 109 to 101, and counting, on both.

Del Dolemonte on July 24, 2012 at 5:09 PM

There’s nothing shocking about causist. His attempt to equate Romney with Obama is completely predictable.

Do I approve of everything that Romney has ever done? Not even close, but I know that he doesn’t hate the free market.

Many Americans focus on Obama’s government-centric and advocacy for government dependency and — rightfully — point out that he is instilling a sense of entitlement and a lack of desire to pursue success in younger generations. Too many, however, miss the other side of the coin, which is just as critical. The United States needs people my age to be incentivised to become as successful as possible. It needs this to survive.

The more Obama demonises success and initiative, the more people say, “Why even bother? All I’m going to get in return is a bunch of obscenities thrown my way by smelling OWS kids that believe I should pay off their $100,000 debt that they incurred majoring in LGBT studies with a minor in Puppetry.”

The demographics in the US over the last 4 decades, especially, are why SS/Medicare are bankrupt. When the first SS cheque was mailed out to Ida May Fuller in 1940, there were 159.4 workers paying for her. In 2010, there were a mere 1.75 workers paying for each SS recipient.

America cannot afford more people like me to Go Galt and more will, as they did during the atrocious 13 years of Labour, if Obama is reelected.

Team Obama lives in a different reality, a socialist fantasy world. A parallel relaity in which a guy, Obama, who has never had a real job in the private sector, who has never run even a lemonade stand, can claim he knows more about how a free market economy runs than a man, Romney, who built a very successful investment firm that saved many failing companies and that helped establish and build several very successful new companies.

Team Obama lives in a socialist fantasy world in which Romney did not really build Bain or help build companies like Staples. Those enterprises are simply a by product of government.

Even the Commies running China understand how a free market economy works better than Obama does.

I believe that this is the idiot who started the “felon” meme.

Personally, I think the Romney campaign should sue her on libel/slander charges. I know he’s a “public figure” and a candidate, but even for them, there is a line where negative speech becomes legally actionable, and I’d think that crossed it.

If nothing else watching the Dems try to backtrack would be entertaining, and if they didn’t back down and “apologize”, the discovery could be … enlightening.

Considering the ratio of workers to those on SS disability is 16 to 1, I doubt Barry knows how the economy works. Or more people would have jobs instead of going on disability when the unemployment ran out. Good news – the number of people on disability went up by about 20,000 so far this month.

This woman has no soul and no reflection in the mirror.

If you are in your forties and fifties and you are still hiding your grades from college, I have a problem with you.

Well, Obama has no clue what is going on with the economy at all. Got that, Ms. Cutter…..

Does Obama understand what work is?

Obama campaign: Does Romney “even understand how our economy works?”

They may be right. Long-Legged Mack Daddy and his gang seem to know exactly where and how to cripple it most effectively.

Your honor, that b1tch is crazy.

But this is the whole point, innit?

Republicans, moreso conservatives, do understand how the economy works. However, liberals, moreso progressives, have a completely different understanding view of how the economy works. That view is at best idealized and at worst divorced from reality.

We conservatives win independents when we can show that to all points on the intellectual spectrum, from hard-working 8th grade drop-outs who can balance their personal budgets to the left coast scientist whose PhD required hard data and not merely chalkboard dogma.

If you check her wiki, you see she was a spokesman, for a hedge fund, JC Flowers, founded by a former Morgan partner, which tried
and failed, at acquiring sallie Mae, Northern Rock, et al.

At least this lady is more photogenic than DWS: still couldn’t make it all the way thru clip, tho’.

The cute little “poodle” should know that Romney has more business experience in his little finger than Obama would ever have, and that is the reason the voters have lost patience with President Obama. He had his chance, now we will give Romney his chance to turn things around.

“…the public and private sector, working together…” Gee, that sounds an awful lot like “…you didn’t build that by yourself…” Nice try, Stephanie.

I’m not convinced Romney does understand how our economy works — at the macro level.

But I know who really doesn’t have a clue!
