According to David Corn of Mother Jones, “Under Obama, the GOP candidate says, government will 'control half the economy.’ Economic experts rate this scare tactic somewhere between ‘ridiculous’ and ‘stupid.’”
Romney says the federal share
Of our economy will grow to where
More than half of it is due
To policies Obama knew
Would further socialism’s guise
And undermine free enterprise.
But Romney’s facts are kind of shaky
And his analysis is flaky.
Economists say that he’s off base
The numbers don’t bear out his case.
Although it may seem illigit
The facts don’t bother Mitt a bit.
