Worse Than Bush

Mitt Romney has made Obama’s failure to improve the economy his campaign theme, and has claimed that Obama’s polices have made the recession “deeper and more painful.” Recently various left-of-center commentators have ripped Romney for this statement, on the grounds that most economic indicators have been improving (even though they’ve been improving far too slowly).

The problem is that Romney hasn’t specified a baseline. It seems clear to me that Romney is saying that Obama inherited a recession from George W. Bush and then made it worse than Bush would have. Romney’s on safe ground making that claim, because it’s totally unfalsifiable, as are all of Obama’s boasts about the recovery (…”jobs created or saved”).

Also…Romney’s probably right.
