Obama: GOP Agenda So Outdated, Like “Black-and-White TV” …Update: In Other Words, Back When the US Had Robust GDP – Unlike the Obama Years

Barack Obama slammed Republicans today for pushing free market capitalism at the Tampa convention.
It’s so “last century”… like “black-and-white tv.”

Obama thinks more big government socialism will do the trick.
The Hill reported:

President Obama blasted Republicans Saturday for an agenda he said was so “last century” that it was like watching “black-and-white TV.”

Obama addressed a campaign audience in Iowa as Democrats prepare to begin their convention next week.

The president said that Republican nominee Mitt Romney offered voters a “rerun” agenda with few details at the GOP convention, which ended on Thursday.

And, the crowd of idiots behind him just chuckled right along with him as if his statement was profound and really made sense.


UPDATE: Obama’s writers should have done their research before they wrote that line up on the TelePrompter.

Back in the heyday of the television, from 1947 to 1953, when more than half of Americans bought their first television set, the GDP was 4.3 Percent.
The GDP under Obama is a horrid 1.48 Percent.
Historically, from 1947 until 2012, the United States GDP Growth Rate averaged 3.3 Percent
