Last time I wrote, the "47% gaffe" was being pressed. Its ripples have mostly faded. This past week it was "ZOMG RICH GUY DOESN'T GROK PLANE WORKINGS", which really was a pathetic display by an increasingly desperate acolyte MSM. It also set up your Double Standard of The Week (tm): What if Romney had stated that he wanted to export more jobs?
Again, the Management would like to know if he was reading off a teleprompter.
We also learned that the Libya situation was much worse than we thought. And, of course, violent protests are still occurring outside embassies as I write this. See yesterday's post for Obama's embarrassment at the UN.
Other memes repeated: "Romney's Worst Week Ever", "Polls Show Obama Pulling Away", "Mitt's Taxes: Not Enough He should Pay More He Payed Too Much", etc.
And so today we got some very depressing economic news: real GDP for Q2 has been lowered from 1.7% to 1.3%, which is f$%king abysmal.
The other barrel of the economic shotgun: durable goods collapsing 13% in August. Head over to Dedicated Tenther for the breakdown.
All in one week. Amazing.
In summary: the "Mitt's Taxes" meme was shattered, unrest still burns in the middle east, the domestic economic situation gets downgraded "expectantly" for the 10e8th time.
The Team O dam is going to burst. Axlerod et al better come up with one helluva squirrel before the GOP starts crackin' wise. "Forward" isn't going to pass muster.
I predict some new BS by tomorrow afternoon.
Obama thinks about voters the way Acme thinks about Wile E. Coyote.
