Face It, Dumbos/Morons! POTUS 44 Has Done A Better Job That St. Dutch (POTUS 40)

The double-canard of 2014 is that St. Dutch (POTUS 40) was the best POTUS in recent memory and POTUS 44 is the worst president over the same period. See Adam Hartung's comparison of POTUS 40 and POTUS 44 on Jobs, Economic Growth, and Investing. Today's Deadline Poem considers the dilemma of Dumbos/Morons to explain away the accomplishments of POTUS 44's administration in comparison with that of St. Dutch. POTUS 40, like his Dumbo/Moron admirers, is all hat, no cattle. If this is (fair & balanced) political reality — not political fantasies, so be it.

We hate the programs he’s pursuing.
We’re sure that up Obama’s screwing.
So what about the stats we’re viewing?
They must be someone else’s doing. Ω
