Obama: Economy past crisis point – time to focus on jobs and growth. AGAIN!

Before I get to today’s press conference let’s go back almost a year in time:

In January of 2010, Obama claimed that after 2 years of recession the economy was growing again and it was time to focus on jobs!

Ok, now let’s jump to the present.

In today’s press conference Obama was asked about his infamous car analogy – if the car was still in the ditch and who would be driving the car over the next two years:

That was an interesting answer. Obama just said that we are now past the crisis point and it’s time to pivot and focus on jobs and growth. Sounds a bit familiar doesn’t it? So I guess that means that in January of this year when he thought we were done recessing, we were actually still in crisis. Maybe that’s why the unemployment graph below looks like it does:

Wow this year’s job growth kinda sucked. Unemployment is actually going up again, getting even closer to 10%. I guess that’s why God made more than one year, to give Obama another shot at fixing the economy and getting unemployment down.

Oh I almost forgot. Obama also said today that the American people are now driving the car. I’m a little confused because I thought only the Republicans and Democrats in DC could drive the car. If we are driving the car now, then maybe we were also driving it in the past too when he thought the Republicans were driving it. Dang, all that time he was accusing the Republicans of driving it in the ditch when it was our fault!

Or maybe, just maybe he really doesn’t want to admit that he’s been driving the car for the last two years and that he’s still driving it – except now he’s got a whole bunch of Republicans in the front seat too and they have their own brake pedal, you know, kinda like one of those Driver’s Ed. cars.

The point of this post is simply to show that Obama just says whatever the hell he wants to say and tends to get away with it, at least with the MSM and the drones. But the American people aren’t letting him get away with it. We made our voice known over the past two years and in November, and we are going to make it known again and again over the next two years and especially in Nov 2012 when we are going to boot this socialist ideologue and his cronies out of Washington once and for all.

  1. Get Jindal in there for 2012. His agenda should be the following. Suspend capital gains for two years. Cut the corporate tax to 18%, cut taxes across the board 10%, and start a domestic drilling program immediately. Why drilling in the US? Because I can see OPEC not acccepting a dollar that is worthless so what choice does the US have. Finally, do not go across the aisle and work with dems ever again. Those vultures are the reason this country is in a tailspin!

  2. Jobs and growth in Dem-speak.

    Jobs = Government Jobs. The federal governmant is the ONLY sector of the economy where jobs and incomes have grown. Increases in compensation for federal jobs is twice that of the private sector.

    Growth = Massive expansion of the fed in a time when smaller, more efficient and non intrusive government is desperately needed.

    Example: The Post Office lost $4 Bil last year, and has lost increasing ammounts for the last 12 quarters. Well, geez you say, no one could make money hauling letters and boxes in this economy. FedEx, UPS and DHL are all showing growth and profit over the same periods. So, what to do? The USPS is hiring on a large scale. More expense should solve the problem, no? An entry level postal worker starts at GS 1 ($21K with full health and benefits) – about 3x minimum wage. No education or experience required. Public education is turning out functionally illiterate graduates. What to do? Spend more money. On, and on, and on, and….

  3. Government lies, and Obama is the Commander in Chief of liars. Real unemployment is more like 20%, we are going to have a “real” housing crash, and governments are going broke every day, while our currency is falling, and jobs are still shedding.

    Don’t worry, we are past the worst of it, because they are bailing everyone out.

    Whatever. Do people really believe this crap?

    1. Probably the same speech writer as Bush. Remember him saying “the fundamentals of the economy are strong”, while industries were shutting down, and jobs were going overseas en mass?

      1. yeah, he’s a repugnant progressive rino just like his daddy, the only time i was ever in agreement with that racist whore jesse jackson was when he said “stay out the bushes!”
