President Obama’s Senior Political Adviser David Plouffe Says, “People Won’t Vote in 2012 Based on the Unemployment Rate”
Talk about wishful thinking and completely out of touch with America … More Obamanomics.
What does top Obama peep say when the President’s stimulus plan has failed and his efforts to create jobs have been a failure? Why the unemployment rate does not matter of course.So does this mean that Obama will have bumper stickers in 2012 that say, “Unemployment rate doesn’t matter … Vote Obama”
David Plouffe, President Barack Obama senior political adviser seems to have the philosophy that it’s NOT about the economy, stupid. He stated that in the 2012 Presidential election that people will not vote based on the unemployment rate. REALLY, WANNA BET? What world do these people live in? Plouffe seems to think that Barack Obama will win reelection with an unemployment rate over 8%.
President Obama’s senior political adviser David Plouffe said Wednesday that people won’t vote in 2012 based on the unemployment rate.
Plouffe should probably hope that’s the case, since dismal job figures aren’t expected to get any better for Obama and the economy on Friday.
Most economists expect a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to show that the nation added about 100,000 jobs in June. That’s not enough to keep up with population growth, let alone lower the unemployment rate or make a dent in the 9 million jobs lost during the so called Great Recession.
An Obama reelection, really? Not only is the US unemployment rate is at 9.1%, also only 28% believe that the country is headed in the right direction, while 63% think we are headed on the wrong track. Also, the albatross of Obamacare still weighs as an anchor around Barack Obama as only 38% are in favor while 50% oppose. Who exactly does Plouffe thinks makes up the unemployment rate, but people?
What a gaffe by Obama’s top political adviser, way to ingratiate yourself to the 14+ million people that are out of work and the others that have taken a lesser job to put food on the table. Barack Obama was elected to fix the economy, or so he claimed. In poll after poll, the economy is rated as the number one issue on the minds of Americans and we are presented with the Obama Administration saying that the unemployment rate means little.
“People Won’t Vote in 2012 Based on the Unemployment Rate” … coming soon to a GOP political ad in 2012. A note to David Plouffe, Obama and the rest … to borrow a line from VP Biden, “the economy is a big F’n deal”.
