If Barack Obama's message makers ever run out of ideas for selling their guy to a country fed up with the economic downturn, they should consider turning to the folks at "The Daily Show."
In a fake campaign ad called "Hope and Change 2 - Barack Obama: It Could Have Been Worse," Jon Stewart's team has cooked up a dozy of a message for the president -- at least we didn't have a zombie apocalypse.
The spot, narrated by Larry David, sums it up by saying, ""Are you better off than you were four years ago? Of course not, but think of how f***ed you could have been."
As David notes, the earth avoided being hit by an asteroid...so that's a plus.
"As a president he's been pretty, pretty...not as bad as he could have been," David says.
"The Daily Show" performed a similar service to Republican nominee Mitt Romney last week with a biographical spot entitled "Mitt Romney: A Human Being Who Built That."
