It's called "spin" my man. I hated it when republicans kept saying during the election that Obama couldn't run on his failed record, therefore he had to conjure up Big Bird, Bain capital, class warfare, etc, when actually Obama was "spinning" his 4yrs of leadership as great and wonderful. More than half the country said at the time of Obama's re-election that his rough 4yrs of economic progress was Bush's fault. All "spin" my man. Obama is a great messenger, but unfortunately a socialist tyrant adored by the mainstream media.
