By The Right Scoop


The reality of a bad economic situation is beginning to set in on the left and some of the more honest lefties are now admitting that there isn’t a hopeful outlook for Obama’s re-election. I’ve included the entire interview of Arianna Huffington with LarryO because of not only the way she trashes Obama and his renewed focus on jobs, but also the way that she talks about how disenfranchised people on the left feel with this debt deal. She even goes as far as saying that Obama needs ‘intense therapy’ so that he can explain to himself why he agreed to such a debt deal. Just the way she characterized it surprised me because it’s not even over yet. We’ve only been through one phase of the deal and I can assure you that the left will push hard for tax increases the next go round as they hold the defense cuts hostage.

But then she starts talking about Obama’s recent pivot toward jobs again. Arianna says that she went back and counted the number of times Obama said he was focused on jobs and apparently it’s so many times that she says no one believes him anymore. She points out that Obama is very focused on campaigning for 2012, and while she agrees that’s an important goal, she says the only number that people will care about in 2012 is the unemployment rate and that there are no prospects for it going below 9%.

What’s funny to me is that the premise that began the interview was that LarryO was trying to find a way to convey hope about economic conditions that are less than hopeful, to help the President as much as they possibly could, and yet it’s their hopelessness that made me feel more hopeful.

Watch the whole interview. It’s not as difficult as it normally would be:

    I believe he has no clue. And that he still believes that government is the only solution. And that government spending is the only way.

    I feel like we’re living in an alternative universe – what “cuts” is she talking about? The reason the Independents don’t like the debt deal is because there ARE no actual cuts.

    I actually heard a lefty economist on CNBC say that we have not spent enough. He said the gov’t has to keep spending “until the consumer “thinks” things are getting better”. Proof that they think that spending money, for anything, will lull the American people into “believing” our economy is strong, when they know it is all pretend!!!!

        Oh, badbadlibs, you know the answer to that.

        When you catch ‘em off guard they’ll let you know that they think the citizenry are dolts and that they, themselves, are the wise ruling class who needs to do what’s best for the children. Remember: we have to eat our peas. Kind of says it all.

          I tried to forget about the “eating peas” part. It does say it all. How can I get a note to him to let him know he is NOT my daddy! We’re all grown ups and we don’t need his failed way of raising us Americans…what a sickening human being.

        The problem is the left actually believes if there are still checks in the checkbook, there is still money in the bank.

          Of course there’s still money in the bank, there’s still checks in the checkbook, duh.

    The unemployment number is sky high, malaise is sky high, the deficit is out of control – Arianna is po’d he’s had “38 re-election fundraisers” and seemingly doing anything but acting as The President of the United States and Crazy Larry says “whoa whoa whoa – we need him for four more years to appoint the Supreme Court!”. Unbelievable. If he gets re-elected this country is doomed.

    In all honesty though, Finding a sugar daddy to take care of them has been an objective of the liberal women for decades, Isn’t that the only way they can do nothing and live large?

    wow.. she just told Lawrence what he did not want to hear. .had that been a conservative on the show he would have said ‘oh your crazy, look at the mess bush put us into’… but no, he just sat there, and took it.. cause she’s right, no one believes this guy anymore.. it’s laughable..

    As the economy continues to tank they’ll blame the huge (phantom) cuts in spening that we never got. LOL.

    Optimism is what mainstream media feeds it’s viewers. Truth is what talk radio preaches. You can see by ratings that Americans seek truth, instead of being coddled by economic illiterates with happy thoughts.

    It’s funny how us conservatives know two years in advance what Huffington is saying today. It is called common sense and understanding facts. Ariana, we welcome you to camp rational; please stay an extra week.

    I think Ms. HuffnPuff is just trolling for hits on her website.

    AOL’s stock has been taking a hit lately, since their merger.
    Methinks there is trouble in paradise.

      Funny, she’s showing signs of tacking right while O’reilly is drifting left. Course changes that, as you say are probably ratings driven to some extent

      • Persephone

        Yep.
        They both tract with which ever way the wind is blowing.
        OReilly lost a lot of his Factor subscribers when he bashed the Tea Party.

        HuffnPuff used to be a Republican, during the Clinton years.
        That is how she rose to fame.
        She switched sides to get in on all the Bush bashing.

        I love it that she had to issue an apology to Breitbart yesterday, for accusing him of doctoring that “We didn’t get anything” Nora ODonnel video.
        Hah.

        Sometimes course changes and all that tacking reflect the lack of compass.

    People are not being fair to Odumber. The stimulus saved 18 gazillion jobs and we are in the middle of Summer Of Recovery 2. As Ms Peelosi said, without the stimulus package, 500 million Americans will lose their jobs every month.

    Huff could be the Sugar Mama for all those trash co-eds. Re: Lawrence, he has already declared (on air) that he is a “Socialist” so why bother to entertain his mock questions?

  • Hologram5

    Can’t watch it. Larry makes me puke in my mouth every time I see his hateful visage and Arianna is just pathetic to say the least. I don’t know if she’s even a citizen although if I had my way, larry would be deported to somewhere in the ME so that he can see the destruction of the terrorists first hand…

    The left is all orchestrated- I don’t believe they go out and speak their mind because they’re too interested in moving forward their agenda. They’re all going to turn on Obama to pave the road for a “moderate” Hilary. Republicans don’t have anyone on their side that can beat her….except maybe Perry, but I’d prefer to have a stronger conservative.

    The direction that this economy/country is taking is exactly what he wants. He has a plan and is carrying it through. All you have to do is read the atrocious obamacare bill. It says it all in black and white. You think things are bad now? Wait till that goes into full effect.
