Pictures: Obama Campaign Can't Do Third-Grade Math

And these are the people who are trying to "fix" the American economy?

The Obama Campaign has launched a coordinated effort urging people to save money... or something.  On their official Wisconsin, California, and Indiana twitter feeds, the President's campaign is slamming Republicans for their supposed "fuzzy math."  Unfortunately for Obama, he is employing idiots.

Because every:
Single:
Tweet:
Cannot multiply forty times twelve.  By the way, forty times twelve equals four hundred eighty dollars, by my estimation.

Also, if I had forty dollars to burn, I would buy the Obama Campaign a calculator.

  1. I thought that this payroll tax thing was for TWO months.Isn't that 8 x 40= $320?

  2. 2 months x $40 per month -- just $80!

    To get to $1000, it's got to be $40 per two-week paycheck. And that's for a $50,000 annual salary 'cause it's a 2% reduction.

    Plus the Democrats' leadership keeps saying it's a tax break for 160 million out of the 131 million people working.

  3. now now, wait a minute, this is Washington we are talking about here, so, if something costs about 400 bucks, thats the same as 1K, and if its 1K then its cheap enough to give to everyone weather they want it or not. plus, and this is the important bit here, while they distribute the "free 1K whatever" to their voters some of that money will stick to them, say about 5K per freebie. Ect

    no law will ever be passed that doesn't offer the opportunity for graft and fraud.

    prove me wrong. ..

  4. What is even more hideous about this is that they used the word ‘roughly’ in the tweet – meaning they knew they were lying and gave themselves an out.

    …They Also knew that the ‘in the tank’ socialist; national media wouldn’t call them on it.

  5. A pack of Chicago thugs go to Washington on AF1 at 700 MPH. How long will it take to triple the deficit?

    1. 700 MPH x pack of Chicago =ONLY 3 years

  6. When you're just making things up anyway, it's hard to keep your math straight.

    No matter which way you cut it, they were lying. And they don't care, because they think we're all idiots (at least the people who will vote for them).

  7. $40 per paycheck
    1 paycheck per 2 weeks
    52 weeks/year

    $40 * 26 = $1,040

    Pretty simple, at least when you aren't intentionally missing the point.

    1. It appears you do not read very well, 40 per MONTH not pay check

      Delete
    2. It's a $20 per paycheck (every 2 weeks) reduction for a total of $40 per month.

      Pretty simple, at least when you aren't intentionally misreading the claim.

  8. Like intentionally missing the /month.

  9. Breaking: commenter #7 can't do third grade math (and doesn't know what a month is). If this is what Obama's got as supporters, Republicans will win all 57 states come 2012

  10. HALLO! Happy to help out.

    The president was talking about families, not individuals.

    "Using the hashtag #40dollars, the White House’s official Twitter account launched an online campaign on Tuesday night to help spotlight the real-life effect that not extending the current payroll tax cut would have on working-class class families.

    For a family earning $50,000 a year, the change would result in roughly $1,000 less to spend over the course of a year—or $40 per paycheck."


    . . because in this Republican philosophy bonanza we experience as The Great Recession, both parents have to work like Moroccan slaves to keep the kids fed. Thus, 40 bucks a month out of every American paycheck is $960 out of the family's cupboard.

    Now you know! Toodles!

    1. Liberal Occupiers don't work at all, they just sit back and wait for their gov hand out each month. Don't blame the Republican philosophy for that one...Leave the blame game to Obama, he is much better at that than you will ever be....

  11. I really don't know how anyone could be defending the math here, despite how you may twist it. The tweets say this and only this: "#40dollars a month adds up to roughly $1,000."

    No mention of paychecks, no mention of regular folks, or bi-weekly salaries. The point is, they might of meant something different, but they wrote something that is grossly wrong. The mental gymnastics liberals are trying to pull with 12 times 40 is absurd (and really a waste of everyone's time)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Just because you fucked up, Joe, doesn't make you right. Everybody knows working class families are two-paycheck operations. Just apologize for screwing up and call it a night. Happens to the best of us.

    Cheers!

    1. Uh . . . no they're not. We're a working class family with six kids and a single paycheck as we choose to homeschool our kids who CAN multiply 40x12.

      The tweet says what it says. It was just a stupid mistake, but stupid mistakes are unaffordable by this president.

  13. Toma, 12 times 40 equals 480. I rest my case.

  14. "They might of."

    Good lord. The English language just died a little on the inside when you wrote that.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Someone in the administration might of been smarter than you, Joe. It might of been obvious to everyone what they meant. You might of been wrong. Stop being silly.

  16. Okay, I get it now toma. You're pretending to be a liberal who intentionally ignores what the facts are. Well played, sir, you had me going for a bit. Merry Christmas to you

  17. Joyeux Kwnaaaanza® to you. Now repeat after me: "My sheepheaded blog screwed this one." Is that so hard?

  18. Toma and others: The tweet says $40/ month for a year. Two things, the "tax break" is for only 2 months. And second, as per the tweet $40 per month is "roughly" $480, $1,000. Wrong and wrong. No amount of liberal mental gymnastics can make this right.

    Also, don't say "everybody knows what they mean" No everybody doesn't know. If you can't say what you intend, you don't know what you mean and are ignorant, or you do know what you mean and are deliberately obfuscating. Neither is good.

  19. Toma, Toma, Toma, this "tax break" is not a tax break. See the so called "payroll tax" is supposed to be payments into a retirement account for the person who pays it. This is how it was sold to a gullible public by FDR and company.

    Sooo, the reduction is really a reduction in that famous working family's retirement kitty. How could Obama and Reid have sold such a scam of a scam to the Dem voters? Because they are as emotionally unthinking as you are, my very dear friend.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yay, yay, hooray for Obama and the Senate. They have allowed us to avoid making some portion, who can figure out how much, of the payments into our retirement plan[Social Security] for two months. The House wanted it for a year but we fooled them. Hahaha. We fooled them, we fooled them because we got two months instead of a year. Yippy. But Obama is brilliant. He is now going to work to extend this cheating of ourselves to one year. Yeah, baby, we fooled them.

  21. They just forgot to mention that an Obama year has 25 months:http://teacheru.us/?p=2524

  22. Okay, are they all missing the elephant in the room? They only wanted this for 2 MONTHS! That's, at best, $160 ($40 per check x 2 checks per month x 2 months = $160. There's no "intentionally missing the point" they didn't want to do this for a year. And for Pete's sake, stop calling it a "tax cut". It is a Social Security funding cut. It's going to have to be made up somewhere because the folks receiving benefits now will expect it.

  23. Wait just a minute! This whole deal discriminates against illegals who get paid under the table!
    They deserve tax breaks too!

    Racist bastards......

  24. Just keep the f'in Christers out of our government. You morons whine bout "fuzzy math", yet some of you want a theocracy. F that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Two months, for Christ's sake! That's four paychecks. That's $160.00. What are you people talking about? It isn't a year. That's why the whole thing is a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, anonymous - I think you spilled some of you brains.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Forget the fuzzy math why isn't anyone concerned that the tax that is being cut funds only one government program...Social Security! That means they are raping a fund that is already going down the tubes because all the money that was going into it over the years was spent on the welfare state instead of being invested for the people when they retire.

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's possible that they MEANT to say "$40/bi-weekly paycheck", or "$40 per month for each of two wage-earners in a two income family". But AS STATED the math is clearly wrong. I'd be happy to give them the benefit of the doubt, if the D's would ever give R's the benefit of the doubt when they make a similar mistake. But any time a Republican mispronounces a word or stumbles over some fact, the liberal pundits play the clip over and over and talk about what an idiot this person is. Obama mispronounces a word and they say, big deal, in a two-hour speech he stumbled over one word, everybody makes mistakes. And they're right. So why doesn't it work both ways? (Need I bring up the liberals jumping all over Dan Quayle for mis-spelling "potato", George Bush for accidentally saying "misunderestimated", etc etc?)

  29. Nice calculator they have there, it's a shame that something happened to it.

  30. $40 X 12 = $480 not $4800.

    What am I missing?

  31. They were rounding up...way up. But to be honest, most high school graduates would not notice anyway...math is so gauche now.

    ReplyDelete
  32. OK $40 x 12 x 160million people is $86.4 billion dollars. Thats what the government piss's away in about 2 hours.
