Short version: Pretend I haven’t been president for three and a half years, that Dems didn’t have carte blanche in Washington, DC for two of them, and that we didn’t just overhaul the health care system.

From the AFP:

US President Barack Obama said Saturday the United States needed to do more than just reclaim jobs lost to the recession, as he called for rebuilding the economy to make it secure for future generations.

“Our mission isn’t just to put people back to work – it’s to rebuild an economy where that work pays; an economy in which everyone who works hard has the chance to get ahead,” Obama said in his radio and Internet address.

The comment came after new Labor Department statistics showed that the June jobless rate was unchanged from May at 8.2 percent, with 12.7 million people in the ranks of the unemployed.

The administration has vowed to keep building and rebuilding the economy in any and every way as long as it’s not supply-side related until they stumble upon an alternate reality in which their policies actually work.

Here’s Obama’s full weekly address:

Apparently rebuilding an economy is strenuous and dangerous, because everybody’s going on disability after over three years of tirelessly pounding nails in America’s economic coffin.

As evidenced by their latest ad embedded below, the Obama campaign’s only hope is to run against Mitt Romney as if he’s been the incumbent and hope nobody notices:

The claims in the above ad are similar to the ones in a previous Obama ad that the Washington Post fact checker threw more Pinnochios at than Geppetto trying to repel a home invasion (even though the ad cited as a source a news story from… the Washington Post).
