Today, Sandra Fluke will be campaigning in the swing state of Colorado for the President. Try as she might, the ‘Rubber Maiden’ will not distract us from the true message of this election year: Obama’s failed economy.
No, we’re not okay. No, the economy isn’t turning around. No, we’re not out of a recession. No, people aren’t going back to work. No, no, no, no. OBAMA HAS A RECORD SO LET’S PLAY IT!
Since Obama doesn’t like to deal in facts but rather uses so-called everyday people to share their tales of how Big Government isn’t doing enough for them, allow me to share some sobering FACTS about Obama’s economy and record. You'll notice how the numbers grow bigger as the list goes on.

So tell me, will seeing Romney’s tax returns for the past 40 years create more jobs? Will the Rubber Maiden’s sexual health pay down the deficit? Will Harry Reid’s slanderous attack stop the corruption in this administration? Have you noticed that Obama hasn’t held a presser that allows for questions in more than 7 weeks? Isn’t it interesting that more and more minions are answering questions for Obama instead of Obama himself? Don’t be fooled by someone yelling ‘Squirrel!’, especially you bitter clingers. Keep your sights focused on the big game. Obama will soon be coming for your 2nd amendment rights as well.
