President Barack Obama has a new campaign slogan.
“Yes, we did.”
Campaigning in Missouri last week for Senate candidate Robin Carnahan, then in Nevada for Harry Reid, President Obama “field-tested” the new slogan. Attacking Republicans, he said “they wouldn’t have set the economy back on track, or passed a health care overhaul or financial regulatory reform.” He also said that GOP control of Congress would usher in another era of a “you’re on your own philosophy.”
Republicans immediately responded.
“Yes, he did.”
Yes, he did increase the deficit to record highs
Yes, he did keep spending
Yes, he did let his friends pile pork onto the the defense spending bill
Yes, he did set new records for one-day spending
Yes, he did bow to foreign leaders

Yes, he did raise taxes
Yes, he did shove mandatory healthcare down our throats
Yes, he did refuse to let any crisis go to waste
Shall we continue?
