Now that Obama's catchphrase "Romney Hood" has failed as demonstrably as everything else the president has attempted, he's breaking in a new slogan on the campaign trail - and it's a pip! He's accusing Mitt Romney and the GOP of promising economic growth through "trickle down fairy dust." Which gets a big laugh from Obama's supporters, who know there aren't any fairies because they were all trampled to death when Barry rode into Washington on his unicorn!
But in keeping with his goal of making sure no American lives happily ever after, Obama is weaving other fairytales into his current speeches.
Specifically, he's claiming that under the Ryan budget plan (which is not on the GOP platform, and was killed by the Senate) Mitt Romney would only pay a tax rate of one percent.
"That's a pretty good deal, just paying one percent in taxes when you're making millions of dollars," the president sneered. "Now here's the kicker - they expect YOU to pick up the tab!"
Unsurprisingly, this line causes the president's Occupy-friendly audiences to "boo" enthusiastically and look around for carts with which to drag evil small business owners to the guillotine.
The problem is, Barry produced this factoid with all the flair of a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat - but it's not a rabbit, it's a baldfaced lie with no basis in reality.
And the hat he's pulling it out of looks suspiciously like his rear end.
