Hey, Let's Call Romney Dumb. Wait, That Won't Fly; Everyone Knows It's Not True. How About Evil? Good, Let's Go With Heartless Vampire. Shit! That's Not Working. I Know, "Out of Touch" Has Worked Before. But Damnit, It's Not Working Now.

The Wimp Factor: Crybaby Obama Asks His Mommy to Check Her Numbers and Make Sure There Aren't Some Super Secret Mystery Jobs She Forgot To Count, Boo Hoo Hoo

First, from Moonbattery, via the very clean LauraW, comes this picture of the Wimp Factor:

By the way, I guess this is second: Like three weeks ago Laura Ingraham was all like "Get off the Jet-Ski, Romney! The American people don't want to see you on a Jet-Ski! With your wife. On vacation."

I ignored this because, well, people paid to talk are going to talk. Manufactured content. Whatever.

But I really thought this was dumb. Are the American people really dazzled by the ultra-exclusive technology of the Seadoo? Is this something that the average person thinks, "Gee, it's too bad I'm only in the middle class, because I could never possibly go to a lake and rent a Seadoo for a couple of hours"?

It's a freakin' Jet-ski. People have seen them. Many have actually ridden them. It's not a personal spaceship, you know. It's not made of gold.

Next thing they'll be saying "Don't you dare to go to beautiful Mount Airy Lodge in the Poconos, Mitt Romney. You don't want to flaunt your wealth by getting exclusive tickets to the beautiful Mount Airy Lodge, also known as the Millionaire's Playground, also known as 'the place where they laugh at the Bildersbergers.' Why, the average person watching an ad for the beautiful Mount Airy Lodge, at 10:30 in the morning, at home, on a weekday, during a rerun of Jeanie, could never dream of actually booking a room there, nor bathing in its heart-shaped tubs."

And then God Forbid he goes to a Lazer Tag arena. Talk about exclusive.

What the hell was I talking about? Oh right.

Instapundit links this old link of an old post. Obama's a baby and needs his ba-ba.

One of my favorite moments from the new book The Escape Artists: How Obama's Team Fumbled the Recovery:
Energy was a particular obsession of the president-elect's, and therefore a particular source of frustration. Week after week, [White House economic adviser Christina] Romer would march in with an estimate of the jobs all the investments in clean energy would produce; week after week, Obama would send her back to check the numbers. "I don't get it," he'd say. "We make these large-scale investments in infrastructure. What do you mean, there are no jobs?" But the numbers rarely budged.


This Is a Good Pic Too: Via Lauren.
