Picture the American economy as a car. It was stalled on the side of the highway when Obama took office. Obama has since taken the wheels off and put them in the trunk, put solar cells on the top of the car and poured soybeans in the gas tank. Right before the election, Obama painted racing stripes on the car and the media found that to be fantastic. Romney told people what was going on, and told them that he would put the tires back on, remove the soybeans and put in gas, and get the car back on the road, but voters were apparently more concerned that Romney might throw away the birth control pills in the back seat.

So, here we sit on the side of the road for another four years, with some people thinking that stripping the car down will really punish those rich b@stards.

Great analogy, but it goes a little further. While the media was oooing and ahhing over the wind turbine that Obama glued to the hood of the car, he was back at the auto plant selling off pieces of it to pay the car's Social Sec-, I mean, insurance bill. At his press conference he hailed a new era of transportation for cars without wheels.
