More Obama promises you can not believe in … Obamanomics: 2 + 2 = 1 Trillion
Now the miracle worker Obama can save jobs while unemployment rises … Jobs are created or saved because Obama says so … that’s good enough for the media. Never before, even under President Bill Clinton has there ever been a more bias and in the tank media for a sitting President.
Is anyone getting tired of this stale and worn out Obama talking point yet? Once again President Barack Obama stated that his accelerated stimulus spending would create or save 600,000 jobs over the next 100 days. All this while his previous stimulus plan saw unemployment rates rise in the United States to 25 year highs.
So what then has Obama and the passage of the stimulus and all the government spending been doing for the American people? The unemployment rate rose to 9.4 percent in May 2009. Obama has been spending tax payer dollars like a drunken sailor, so now his answer is to spend like an even more drunken sailor???!!!
“We’ve got a long way to go, but I feel like we’ve made great progress,” Obama said at a White House meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and cabinet officials aimed at highlighting gains made since Congress passed the massive stimulus package in February.
“The biggest concern that I have moving forward is that the toll that job losses take on individual families and communities can be self-reinforcing,” Obama said.
Blue Crab Boulevard asks an honest question of the Obama Administration … name the 150,000 jobs that you claimed to have saved. The answer is, they cannot. It is pure fiction. However, what is not fiction is the fact that the unemployment rate is higher than what the White House had projected. Maybe professor Obama would like to explain how he created any jobs as compared to ones that were lost when even his own unemployment numbers are higher than expected.
Wake up … unemployment rates at 25 year highs, a federal deficit out of control and Obama wanting to spend even more money on socialist programs like nationalizing healthcare, while he an his minions claim the stimulus plan is working. I remember Nero playing the fiddle as well.
We the People are not stupid Barack Hussein Obama … we can do the math.
Gallup Poll – How is Obama handling the economy?
Obama’s job approval rating for his handling of the economy has dropped from 59% in February to 55% today, while his disapproval rating has risen by 12 points, from 30% to 42%. The fact that Obama’s approval on the economy has become more negative over this time period is of interest
How exactly does one prove that a job was not lost because of something that Obama did? The answer is he cannot. But he has a complicit media telling everyone he is doing such a great job with the economy. Wonder if the media will continue down such a path when they lose all their jobs? It is the equivalent of us saying; today Scared Monkeys saved the world because it did not spontaneously combust today. It would seems about the same type of tested accomplishment, sarcasm intended.
Well what does one expects except for the media to grovel, and suck up every piece of BS that Obama has to offer? A press Corp is supposed to be skeptical of a government, not smitten. The media makes every excuse and takes every opportunity to praise Obama and a stimulus plan that has done never except put the country in debt. Now they praise accomplishments that cannot even be measured. Jobs have been created or saved because Obama says so. As the Anchoress states, the The whole “save or create” line is beyond a flim-flam.
Mr. Fratto sees a double standard at play. “We would never have used a formula like ‘save or create,’” he tells me. “To begin with, the number is pure fiction — the administration has no way to measure how many jobs are actually being ‘saved.’ And if we had tried to use something this flimsy, the press would never have let us get away with it.”
Of course, the inability to measure Mr. Obama’s jobs formula is part of its attraction. Never mind that no one — not the Labor Department, not the Treasury, not the Bureau of Labor Statistics — actually measures “jobs saved.” As the New York Times delicately reports, Mr. Obama’s jobs claims are “based on macroeconomic estimates, not an actual counting of jobs.” Nice work if you can get away with it.
Hopefully Wizbang is right in that at some point in time, in the political dialogue a reasonable person must ask if the truth is being told. At some point President Barack Obama will have to face the music and answer tough questions from a media that has all but sold out “We the People”. When will they ever maintain a skeptical eye of their Chosen One.
Maybe when their industry is so ravaged by the economic time, maybe, just maybe they will do their job and ask real questions.
