As Obama Prepares for State of the Union to discuss Jobs & Health Care, Americans Oppose His Failed Stimulus Plan


Barack Obama’s State of the Union …An Obama-sized mess.

Axelrod claims that Obama will focus on jobs, yet none of The One’s spin meisters can agree on the same economic jobs created or same spin. It really appears to the American public that this Obama White House is focused on jobs. REALLY? You can’t even get your spin correct.


The Obama Gang Who Could Not Spin Straight

  • 10% unemployment when he promised it would not go over 8%.
  • $787 billion stimulus plan was a colossal failure.
  • No economic/jobs recovery as last December 85,000 more jobs lost.
  • Record federal spending and deficits under Obama Administration
  • Focused on disastrous government control health care bill instead of the economy.
  • Near terrorist bomb exploded on plane Christmas Day but for faulty detonator, the system did not work
  • Ft Hood Maj. Hasan terrorist shooting massacre, the system did not work.

As President Barack Hussein Obama prepares for his State of the Union speech  and his new found Populist fight on voice and sudden focus on jobs, according to a recent CNN poll, 56% of Americans  oppose Obama’s economic stimulus program. This represents a 12% increase against the stimulus plan since last March 2009.  In a word, the stimulus was a failure.

Fifty-six percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Sunday say they oppose the stimulus package, with 42 percent supporting it.

Last March, just weeks after the stimulus bill was signed into law by President Barack Obama, a CNN poll indicated that 54 percent of the public supported the program, with 44 percent opposed.

The program, formally known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, attempts to stimulate the country’s economy by increasing federal government spending and cutting taxes at a total cost to the government of $787 billion. No Republicans in the House and only three in the Senate voted in favor of the bill.

When it comes to jobs and the Obama $787 billion stimulus plan, why are so many Americans not trusting or in favor? Maybe because it is from the inconsistent message from the Obama Gang that Could not Shoot Straight. As pointed out by Blue Crab Boulevard, “Three senior administration munchkins, three wildly different estimates of jobs invented or imagined by the economic stimulus plan.”

The fact of the matter is that Obama’s minions are spinning the economic data these days that not even they can keep their lies correct. This WH is an organizational disaster.

How is it possible that three top Obama officials can go out on the Sunday Talk Shows and not have the same numbers of Obama stimulus jobs created or saved? Maybe because it’s all made up? Valarie Jarret says thousands and thousands of jobs, David Axelrod says over 2 million and Robert Gibbs says 1.5 million jobs saved or created. WHAT A JOKE.

The discrepancy was pointed out by a Republican official in an email to reporters noting that “Three presidential advisers on three different programs [gave] three different descriptions of the trillion-dollar stimulus bill.”

Valerie Jarrett had the most conservative count, saying “the Recovery Act saved thousands and thousands of jobs,” while David Axelrod gave the bill the most credit, saying it has “created more than – or saved more than 2 million jobs.” Press Secretary Robert Gibbs came in between them, saying the plan had “saved or created 1.5 million jobs.”

Is it any wonder why this Presidents poll numbers have tanked in one year?

      these people will lie to their mothers, kids, or anybody else. looking at them is to know that they are crooks.

      Colossal failure is an understatement. He has done nothing right since he took office. He has only made things worse. Spending money like it grows on trees while people are still losing their jobs, their homes, everything they have and it shows no signs of improvement. When is he going to start doing the job he was elected to do? That’s what we want to know? The economy is a mess and should be top priority along with national security. Forget the healthcare reform and concentrate on jobs & keeping us safe from terrorist (yes they do exist).

      Now now Monkeys dont worry it’s all BUSHES fault !!! The dumb ass Kune tried but all he could do is lie !!! I cant wait for the state of the union PUNCH LINE !!! What a joke !!!

      Well they can say anything from 1 single job to 2 million jobs and they then can say they are correct….what a monumental mistake and waste of tax payers money!

      Obama got his prevaricators Valerie Jarrett, David Axelrod, and Robert Gibbs cooking the book on the media circuit. Hey three stooges when you lie to the press use the same BS figures.

    7. NewGirlBoston on January 25th, 2010 11:23 am

      #2–You are so right. Now there are rumours floating around since everything to date fiscally has been a bust—O-Bomb-a may attempt to pass through a SECOND “Stimulus” Plan for approval? Forget where I was reading that, pray it is just that…a false rumour!

      On a Statewide level, here in Massachusetts we have technically lost a decade. For the first time since WWII, the state ended a decade with fewer jobs than it had at the beginning. Thanks, Deval Patrick! You suck and you are next. Apologies for getting a bit OT.


      ** No raging posts from Bleeding Heart Libs either trying to blame GWB for the economy either—HATERS! I am talking about what Patrick Deval has done to this State SPECIFICALLY and this post is referring to what OUR PRESIDENT has done to damage our country fiscally and economically-(for starters)–and ALL this in just his first 365 days in office! He has many more plans in store for America, too so this nightmare won’t even be over until another 3 years.

      God help us!

    8. super dave on January 25th, 2010 12:15 pm

      this is an outright lie. the only jobs created were government jobs. a government that is already bloated with the friends of obama. and as we can see, most of them tax evaders or worse. all weak links in the security of the United States.

      The past Marxist and/or Muslim leanings of President Barack Obama and each of his closest advisers is frightening.

      For love of America and the principles for which She has stood … for the principles for what has made her great … in their bid for the Whitehouse … while campaigning in the last election … the Republican and the other Democratic candidates had a moral obligation to expose … to warn … the American electorate of Barack Obama’s past Marxist/ Socialist/ Muslim affiliations.

      Political correctness … bowing to the enemy … is the downfall of the democracies of the free world.



      McCain Tells Crowd Obama is Not Arab
      Why Is Obama’s Middle Name Taboo?
      Thursday, Feb. 28, 2008

      Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.: that is the full name of the junior Senator from Illinois — neither a contrivance nor, at face value, a slur. But John McCain couldn’t apologize quickly enough after Bill Cunningham, a conservative talk radio host, warmed up a Cincinnati rally with a few loaded references to “Barack Hussein Obama.” Asked afterwards if it was appropriate to use the Senator’s middle name, McCain said, “No, it is not. Any comment that is disparaging of either Senator Clinton or Senator Obama is totally inappropriate.”,8599,1718255,00.html

      where is the rest of the money from the first stimulus ? where is all the money that (the taxpayers) were getting back from the big banks ? somebody needs to be asking these questions.
      i say that the obama posse has already delved into the first stimulus package and pillaged what they wanted and left nothing.

      One month prior to the last election John McCain was assuring his supporter that Barack Obama was a decent person whom should not be feared if elected that next Present of the United States.

      There is something terribly wrong with this picture.



      Supporters jeer as McCain calls Obama ‘a decent person’
      October 11, 2008

      LAKEVILLE, Minn. – Republican rage against Barack Obama claimed a new victim yesterday: John McCain.

      A week of growing fury from Republicans aimed at Obama – and allegations from Democrats that McCain and his running mate, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, had fostered a mob mentality at their rallies – ended with boos for McCain from his own supporters after he rebuked one of them for saying he was “scared . . . to bring a child up” under an Obama presidency.

      There was a rumble of disapproval from the crowd when McCain defended his Democratic rival. “I have to tell you he is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States,” McCain said.

      The expectant father was among eight voters at a town hall meeting who begged McCain with growing desperation to confront Obama more forcefully, with several of them raising specific controversies that have dominated news coverage and the attention of Republican activists. Those include Obama’s relationships with Vietnam-war era radical William Ayers, who helped found the violent group the Weather Underground, and the community-organizing group ACORN, which is accused of voter registration fraud.

      When a woman referred to Obama yesterday as “an Arab,” McCain cut her off and seized the microphone from her hands. “No, ma’am,” he interjected. “He is a decent family man with whom I happen to have some disagreements.”

      #12 – There is something terribly wrong with YOU. First off, you are a birther. That’s the first sign you’re nuts. Secondly, YOU #12 purposely provided fake quotes in #9. Neither of those 2 quotes from Obama’s book actually exist.

      Why would you intentionally lie like that #12?

      But thanks for peddling lies to further whatever bizzare agenda you have.

      Brither: A racist sore loser who can’t deal with having a black president so they make up absurd conspiracy theories.

      yoyo … the race of the candidate should never be the issue prior to casting a ballot in a democratic election. Research into the ideology the candidate embraces … where on the political spectrum she/he stands … is where it is at.

      However … I will concede to a conspiracy theory encompassing Barack Obama. It is my contention that in the last election a Maxist ran for the highest office in the land under the Democratic banner. In other words … a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

      It appears to me that many American voters who did not do their homework regarding the ideology that Barack Obama embraced and … they cast an uninformed ballot in their sincere desire for CHANGE. However, there were many racist voters who could care less in regards to ideology. The ultimate goal … a Black president of the United States.


    18. RonC. on January 26th, 2010 7:33 pm

      Read Barack Obama’s books!

      It is all in there. Number 9, 12 is correct. These are his own words in his own books. Still don’t believe it? Then go by them and see for yourself.

      Wow…some people are so deep in denial it’s amazing.

      #18 – Give us the page numbers then? I will help you out:

      “The Audacity of Hope, “Pg 261:
      Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

      Now who’s in denial #18? Lol.
      SM: That would still be you.

      At the end of Barack Obama’s worst week since taking power a year ago, the US president’s fortunes look set only to deteriorate over the coming days. Following the shock defeat of the Democratic candidate in Massachusetts on Tuesday, a move that deprived the president of his 60-seat super-majority in the Senate and left his legislative agenda in tatters, Mr Obama has just four days to reboot the system.

      The US president had originally delayed next week’s State of the Union address to Congress in the hope he would get his signature healthcare reform bill enacted in time. That prospect, already waning, was killed dead by the voters in Massachusetts. A growing number of Democrats believe the nine-month effort could collapse altogether.

      The death of the healthcare effort would rob Mr Obama of what he had hoped would be the centrepiece of his first State of the Union message. “It now looks extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get anything resembling a broad healthcare bill out of Congress,” said Scott Lilley, a senior fellow at the liberal Centre for American Progress, the think-tank that is closest to the White House. “In his State of the Union, Obama has to slim down his ambitions. It should be short and simple and focus on jobs.”

      However, even a more modest agenda looks tough for Mr Obama now. Believing their strategy of total opposition was vindicated by the voters last Tuesday, Republicans are in even less of a mood to co-operate with Democrats than before. The difference is that with 41 seats in the Senate they are in a position to block almost anything Mr Obama proposes – including the Wall Street regulatory measures he announced on Thursday.

      “Obama has to decide whether he wants to be a transformational president, which looks optimistic at this stage, or merely an effective president,” says Bruce Josten, head of government affairs at the US Chamber of Commerce, which has spent tens of millions of dollars opposing healthcare. “My advice would be that he pick up the phone and ask for Bill Clinton’s advice on how to recover from a situation like this.”

      Nor can Mr Obama rely on unity within his own party, which has been in disarray, if not panic, since Tuesday. For example, Mr Obama’s more populist tack on Wall Street re-regulation failed to attract endorsement from Chris Dodd, chairman of the Senate banking committee, even though he was present when Mr Obama made the announcement.

      Others, such as Tim Johnson, Democratic senator for South Dakota and a senior member of the banking committee, were already opposed to elements of Mr Obama’s regulatory proposals including the plan to establish a consumer financial protection agency.

      Worse, most people do not think Mr Obama can even command unity within his own administration on the Wall Street proposals amid growing speculation about whether Tim Geithner, the Treasury secretary, can survive in his job. Mr Geithner was conspicuously sidelined during Thursday’s announcement by the presence of Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve chairman, who lent his name to the push to rein in Wall Street banks.

      The speculation about Mr Geithner is only likely to grow. “The Obama proposals were clearly politically motivated and came from the White House not the Treasury,” says a Democratic adviser to the administration, who withheld his name.

      Finally, there is increasingly open Democratic disaffection about the way Mr Obama is managing relations with Capitol Hill. Many believe that Rahm Emanuel, Mr Obama’s aggressive chief of staff, served Mr Obama badly by persuading the president that his election was a transformational moment in US politics that gave him the opportunity to push through long-cherished Democratic goals, such as healthcare reform.

      In fact, exit polls from Mr Obama’s election showed that almost two-thirds of the voters cited the economy as their chief concern, with fewer than one in 10 mentioning healthcare. Mr Emanuel is also perceived to have mishandled the day-to-day logistics of getting healthcare through Congress.

      By leaving the scripting of the details of the healthcare bill to Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill, the White House openly courted the risk of chaos. Tellingly, in his victory speech in Boston on Tuesday, Scott Brown, the new Republican senator, cited voter disdain for the sight of lots of “old men” on Capitol Hill bickering over healthcare reform at a time when their priority was jobs.

      “I haven’t seen Rahm Emanuel except on television,” Jim Pascrell, a Democratic lawmaker from New Jersey, told Politico, the news website, on Friday. “We used to see him a lot; I’d like him to come out from behind his desk and meet with the common folk.”

      In short, Mr Obama’s nightmare January could easily slip into a nightmare February. “Unless and until the president changes the way his White House, works, things are going to continue to go badly for him,” says the head of a Democratic think-tank. “Heads still have to roll.”
