Barack Obama – President Zero: Charles Krauthammer Say on FOX News that “Obama Is President Zero – zero economic expansion, zero jobs, zero ideas on how to cure the economy.”
“He doesn’t understand that his administration has stopped the recovery in its tracks.”
We at Scared Monkeys have called Obama President Zero for quite some time, its nice to see those in the media, even at FOX News saying the same. Charles Krauthammer said on FOX News that Obama is the reason for the poor economy, not the GOP, the Tea Party. It has been Obama’s partisan ideology, policies and politics.
Obama, not a Super Hero, but a Super Zero
Obama’s economic policies have been nothing more than an Epic Failure. Last summer Obama promised a “Summer of Recovery”. Hell, Americans are still waiting for the job recovery this summer. Americans are fed up with Obama’s promises, speeches and excuses. There is a reason why 8 in 10 Americans think we are in a recession, the Obama recession, economic growth is diminishing, job growth is nonexistent and that only 19% of Americans think the country is headed in the right direction.

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: That assumes the speech he thinks will turn the economy around. This is not that speech. This is to frame the debate for his reelection. This is not a serious jobs proposal. It will include things he knows Republicans will reject. And thus he sets up the premise, because his own White House has now said we are going to be nine percent up employment next year as well. The premise will be we are at nine percent on election date because the obstinate Republicans who care only about reelection and not about the country have rejected the great ideas he is proposing.
Look, I think the Republicans have their perfect slogan – President Zero: zero economic expansion, zero jobs, zero ideas on how to cure the economy. The recession ended two years ago. We were supposed to have a recovery summer last summer. In the numbers you showed, the unemployment, the slowdown in jobs started at the beginning of this year. He threw $1 trillion dollar stimulus at the economy assuming you’d have a Keynesian effect, a multiplier effect. It didn’t.
Didn’t Obama say that the recession ended two years ago? So where are the jobs Mr. President? The Weekly Standard asks a simple question that one would think the MSM would ask Obama at this point. Then again, the liberal MSM is there to prop this President up, not question him. Why has no one asked Obama how a job is created? With the economy and jobs being the number 1 issue in the United States, why isn’t anyone asking Obama the obvious question … how is a job created because obviously he has no idea.
This has never been asked of Obama and never answered, so far as I know. And chances are he won’t answer it definitively when he unveils his new jobs program before a joint session of Congress this week.
But there are big clues from his prior policies and the batch of ideas now emanating from the White House. The president believes government is the premier job creator. Why? One reason is government understands markets better than the private sector, so long as the right people are in charge, like Obama himself.
How does any President with a +9.0% unemployment rate and job approval hovering near the 30′s win reelection in 2012?
