“We Tried Our Plan — And It Worked”

July 25, 2012 at 2:04 pm

“We tried that and it didn’t work,” Obama said of Mitt Romney’s proposed tax cuts and spending cuts, which he dismissed as a Bush-style “top down” economic policy.  “Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan — and it worked,” he added later in the speech.  “That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election.  That’s why I’m running for a second term.”  Obama made these comments in Oakland, where the unemployment rate was 13.7 percent in May 2012. The national unemployment rate is 8.2 percent — up from 8.1 percent in May — for the second straight month.

  1. Because if you keep saying it… it might become true.

  2. reggiec says:

    The only way Obama can make statements like this is a complete detachment from reality. I believe another word for that condition is insanity.

  3. Bill M says:

    We need Gingrich’s system to be implemented: 4 hours after the presidente speaks, Romney adresses the same croud and rebuts the lies.

  4. He’s smoking something!!!

  5. DWynne says:

    wow – could HE BE any more clueless? Hey Barry you soooo gotta GO!!!

  6. Steve Gross says:

    For the sake of my grandchildren dump this lying, enemy of this great country. Mitt Romney may not be perfect but he’s 10,000 % better that the destroyer in the white house. PLEASE USE YOUR HEAD. Look at what’s happening to my, OUR country!!!!!!

  7. will says:

    I am not too crazy about Mitt, BUT, if the devil himself or Adolf Hitler is running against Osama, aka, commander in chief of the U.S., he’s got my vote.

  8. William H says:

    Well, his plan DID work. Its justthat his plan was never really about jobs, reviving the economy, and so on.

    Obama’s plan is all about using division and blame to enroll more and more Americans on the Big-Government mule wagon.

    Working nicely, oh yes.

  9. Edward Miska, Sr says:

    How can anyone even suggest that the current Administration plan did anything but fail to develop any lasting jobs. The great GM & Chrysler job save was for Unions & not for the average unemployed person.If we measure unemployment rates in 2009 and 2012, what changes was the 6 trillion budget deficit & the prospect that soon China will own us.

    Komrades .. when Big Boss speaks Party Truth, you can bet your rationing stamps it is true.

  11. Rob says:

    I can’t even stand to look at the guy any more. I just can’t believe all the sheep in this country, WOW! How totally un-informed, out of touch, liberal media mesmerized, anti Amreican, socialist do you have you be to even listen to this pathetic piece of political garbage????

  12. The only “plan” Obummer has tried is raising taxes on everybody making more than $125 K a year after promising to leave alone anybody making $250K or less per year. He jumps for joy when a company goes bancrupt due to his punishing taxes. He was ecstatic to learn that he had been the cause of the demise of the country’s largest and oldest coal company.
