Earlier this year, WH predicted 3% growth for 2012. With 1H up less than 2%, tough to hit that mark

Just days after President Obama told donors, “We tried our plan, and it worked,” we learn that the GDP grew at a sickly 1.5 percent annual rate between April and June as Americans cut back on spending.

If ever there was a time for a rapid-response ad:

@ThePlumLineGS Is 1.5% growth due to Obama's plan to fix a "crisis"? He said the other day his plan worked. Sounds like a future Romney ad.

Make it happen, Romney camp!

Obama: "Our plan worked" Reality: 1.5% growth. What the HELL was the plan?

Who built that, President Obama? Did somebody else make that happen?

US economy GDP rate is at 1.5%. I imagine lefties somewhere discussing how Mitt's Swiss bank account is to blame for that

BREAKING: Romney's London criticism causes GDP to shrink to 1.5% growth. #ItWorked #DoingFine

GDP growth at 1.5% this quarter. DAMN YOU ROMNEY'S TAX RETURNS! #shakesfist

@LachlanMarkay Gotta blame the Bush/Cheney Axis #ObamaDidntDoThat

Darn headwinds!

Clearly only one thing can save us from economic catastrophe:

If Romney discloses his tax returns, we can immediately expect a 0.5% GDP bump.

But of course, it’s Mitt Romney who’s having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week.

I love how Romney gets trashed for something he said about Olympics, while we are sitting at 15% U6 and 1.5% growth and that seems alright?

So the economy grew at an anemic 1.5%, but all of Obama's surrogates, aka media, want to talk about is Romney s "gaffe". #priorities

US 2Q GDP comes out at an anaemic 1.5%. But don't worry, liberals. Mitt Romney has a horse.

Hey @markos! Remember how you said Romney had a disastrous day yesterday? What do you call 1.5% Q2 growth for Obama? #tcot #p2

— RB (@RBPundit) July 27, 2012

Even Piers Morgan gets it. Piers Morgan!

I suggest everyone stops worrying about Romney's manners and starts worrying about these new American economic figures. #DeflatingDollar

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 27, 2012

But no worries. The private sector is doin’ fine!

A parting idea for stimulating growth:

Fine I'll drive 40min to my nearest Chick – Fil-A RT @bdomenech 1.5% growth. You stupid consumers, buy something.
