|Once again, Dan Rather is not fucking|
The ads weren't so bad until I started hearing Romney attack ads ad nauseum. What was absurd though was the content of these ads. I'll just share a couple of them with you.
In the first ad, the voiceover girl says "While Mitt Romney was governor, Massachussets fell to 41st in job creation in the country." Only a moron would fall for that horse shit, and here's why. You know what Massachussets' unemployment rate was for 2011? 6%. SIX PERCENT. And for anyone who has any basic understanding of economics, what is the magic number for what we consider full employment? 5%
So sure, Massachussets wasn't creating any jobs, but it also had the 11th lowest unemployment rate in the country. I guess we'll have to see if their unemployment rate rises, but my guess is that they're doing fairly well. Sorry to break it to these idiots, but you can't grow a whole lot if there's little room to grow in the first place.
The second ad is even more laughable. "While governor, Mitt Romney rakced up over $2.1 billion in debt." Wow. How much debt has Obama racked up as president?
The best part about these ads is that they always end with the same phrase: "Romney economics didn't work then, and they won't work now." Wow, I didn't realize that racking up debt was strictly Romney economics. And apparently he sucks for having a low unemployment rate.
I'm not going to vote for the guy, but these ridiculous attack ads just go to show how dumb they think the American people are. Maybe they think only idiots listen to Pandora?
