Update

Been on DU )first time in years) looking for that poster. Didn’t find it, but I found one of the most mind boggling cause for celebration

Kristol Blasts Romney For Ignoring Afghanistan, U.S. Troops In Convention Speech

More pertinently, they do not like this meme at all

It’s time to retire the “Are you better off then you were 4 years ago” stupidity.

One campaign meme on Facebook answered this by “Of course we were better the day Obama took office, because Bush was gone. *can’t find me asthey didn’t like my comment)  Fair enough, but any good news since?

Here’s a by the numbers answer

Gross Domestic Product
Fourth quarter, 2008: -6.2 percent
Second quarter, 2012: +1.7 percent

Jobless Americans
January 2009: 11.1 million
Now: 12.8 million

Unemployment rate, overall
January 2009: 7.8 percent
Now: 8.3 percent

Median family income
2008: $52,029
End of 2011: $51,413

and more.

The more notable comment in that Facebook exchange: Better disappointment than disaster. Which still doesn’t reach the heights of Avrosis comparing Obama to chemotherapy

or a mattress collecting your broken bones after a fall
