Barack Obama, Clueless About Jobs and Just Plain Clueless



Why is it that President Barack Obama and his minions just can’t seem to comprehend that his entire reelection is based on the economy and whether people are working? How could the Obama Administration continue to be so obtuse when it comes to the economy and jobs? It is as if they actually do not want to create jobs, if one did not know any better. June’s increase of the unemployment rate to 9.2% and a pathetic 18,000 jobs created is a complete embarrassment. Or, at least it should be. However, sadly for the United States Barack Obama and his peeps have been clueless from the outset and continue to spew their BS. Following the terrible job numbers, Obama mouth piece Jay Carner continued to insult the common sense of Americans.

Responding to the Friday jobs report, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney doubled down on Plouffe’s analysis: “Most people do not sit around the kitchen table and analyze GDP and unemployment numbers. They talk about how they feel, their own economic situation . . . whether they’re making their house payments.”

With the rate of foreclosures continuing to climb on Obama’s watch, maybe “house payments” isn’t the best metric.

But his naive logic shouldn’t surprise.

It’s been clear from Day One that this White House is clueless when it comes to the economy

According to the Rasmussen report, following the terrible job numbers on Friday where unemployment went up to 9.2%, consumer confidence has fallen to a near two year low.

The Rasmussen Consumer Index, which measures the economic confidence of consumers on a daily basis, fell two-and-a-half points on Saturday to 68.6. That’s the lowest level of confidence measured since July 24, 2009. Consumer confidence is down two points from a week ago, six points from a month ago and eight points from three months ago.

Make no mistake about it, the American voters will remember that Obama said that the $878 billion stimulus would keep unemployment below 8% and that then Democrat Speaker of the House Pelosi said that Obamacare would create 400,000 jobs instantly. Come 2012 there will be a reckoning and Democrats are going to pay an even steeper price than they did in the 2010 midterms.

      Many would venture to say that ‘Obama is
      absolutely perfectly clueless’! Duly noting
      that no one is perfect weakens that statement
      somewhat….not much, but, somewhat.

      I think Trump said this first. Scaredmonkeys

      Let me get this straight . . . …
      We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care
      plan we are forced to purchase and
      fined if we don’t,
      Which purportedly covers at least
      ten million more people,
      without adding a single new doctor,
      but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,
      written by a committee whose chairman
      says he doesn’t understand it,
      passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but
      exempted themselves from it,
      and signed by a President who smokes,
      with funding administered by a treasury chief who
      didn’t pay his taxes,
      for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any
      benefits take effect,
      by a government which has
      already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,
      all to be overseen by a surgeon general
      who is obese,
      and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!
      ‘What the hell could
      possibly go wrong?’

      I believe that Obama has as his primary goal the complete destruction of the US as we know it and as the Founding fathers intended it. After all, he promised to “Fundamentally change” the US so why should anyone be surprised at his doing so?
      I believe he is a foreign-born socialist Muslim who hoodwinked enough people to get into office, with the help of Acorn registering people a number of times each and paying for their votes with taxpayer money. And I also think he’ll do the same thing next year and finish us off. I consider him to be a usurper. He’s not interested in creating jobs. There’s a road project in my county which is costing millions and creating the grand total of one additional job, blocking clear access to a number of businesses and putting a lot of people out of work. That’s how this bunch of crooks work, folks. But I guess enough people don’t care and he’lll get away with it.

      “Sitting around the kitchen table?” A lot of people don’t even have a table anymore, much less a kitchen, thanks to these thugs.

      # 3 is right on. And yes, President Pull-Ups wants another 4 years since he hasn’t quite been able to destroy all of America yet. After all, there are still some rich people out there so let’s go for class warfare. Let’s blame Wall Street, the bankers and the EVIL rich! Then, let’s tax the heck out of them so that like the corporations, they pick up their money and jobs and MOVE.
