EPIC New Meme Totally Destroys These Two Famous Democratic Talking Points

From Powerline:
The last recession officially ended, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, in June 2009. By now, September 2015, we should be in the middle, or perhaps the later stages, of an economic boom, having enjoyed years of strong economic growth, job creation and rising private sector incomes.

Instead, our economy has never exited the recovery stage, and we have just concluded the seventh “recovery summer” of the Obama administration.
The Obama economy has been, in a word, lousy, and its lousiness is most evident in the fact that full-time jobs have been so scarce that tens of millions have quit looking, and many millions have classified themselves as permanently and totally disabled, one of the less painful ways of exiting the labor market. …
The Obama administration always has an excuse for its terrible economic performance–the weather, conditions in China, whatever. (The best you can say for Obama is that he hasn’t yet blamed his failures on “wreckers and saboteurs.”)
But the truth is that the administration’s consistent failure to produce results, now extending for nearly seven years, is largely the result of the Democrats’ liberal policies, most notably the hyper-regulation that seeks to concentrate all power in the government. …

Polls show that a strong plurality of Americans believe that immigrants, legal and illegal, are taking many jobs that otherwise would have gone to the native-born. They are correct. The combination of a chronically weak economy and unprecedented levels of immigration is toxic, and will be the most potent political issue in the 2016 cycle where a candidate is willing to raise it.
