President Obama likes to use the analogy of the economy as a car.
He needs the public to believe Republicans drove the car into a ditch.
The recession began in December 2007 and Democrats had control of the Congressional purse strings beginning in January 2007.
Obama's been behind the wheel since the end of January 2009 and he has either driven us back into the ditch (Jobless claims rise to highest level in 9 months), or we remained in the ditch and he's driving us full speed into the drainage pipe (Weekly Jobless Claims Post Surprise Jump, Hit 500,000).
And the scientific community is united in that fact!
Time to pit and change drivers.
My hooptie rollin', tailpipe draggin'
Heat don't work an' my girl keeps naggin'
Six-nine Buick, deuce keeps rollin'
One hubcap 'cause three got stolen
Bumper shook loose, chrome keeps scrapin'
Mis-matched tires, and my white walls flakin'
