GOP conjure another Houdini comparison

First Rush Limbaugh doctored Houdini’s King of Cards poster to show President Obama as “Barry Houdini” (I don't get it either), now presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has evoked Houdini’s name in criticizing the President’s economic policy.

Says Romney, “Focusing solely on jobs created while ignoring the far greater numbers of jobs lost is Harry Houdini economics.”

This appears to be a new spin on the expression “voodoo economics,” which is what George H.W. Bush called the policies of Ronald Reagan during the presidential primaries of 1980.
