And the wind was in my face, the sun was in my eyes, it was global warming…

 Obama said Greece, natural disasters, high gas prices, state budget cuts and uncertainty about the debt ceiling were prohibiting the economy from creating more jobs,

Thanks to Gateway Pundit  

“Streamlining the patent process” and new infrastructure spending were a few solutions to the jobs crisis offered by the President this morning, leaving many economists scratching their heads

um… WHAT?!?

Plouffe attempts a spin on the old Bugs Bunny vaudville question “you wouldn’t hit a guy with glasses on, now would you?”

“The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers,” Plouffe said, according to Bloomberg. “People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’

Let’s see

  1. He  raises the MPG requirement making cars unaffordable for most – and tells a guy who’s struggling with rising gas prices “buy a new car”
  2. He has the NLRB sue a publicly traded company for opening a plant in a non union state despite adding jobs in a union state….
  3. He said we should tax millionaires and billionaires more – you know, people making over $250,000 (um so far no one’s commented on the irony of 1/4th of a million equating to “millionaire..”)
  4. he railed against the tax break for corporate jet owners — six times.


I did the math. If you collect that tax for the next 5,000 years — that is not a typo — it would equal the new debt Obama racked up last year alone. To put it another way, if we had levied this tax at the time of John the Baptist and collected it every year since — first in shekels, then in dollars — we would have 500 years to go before we could offset half of the debt added by Obama last year alone.

What was that he said about “how I feel the President makes decisions based on me and my family?”

    How about this for arrogance? Source:

    Citing a poll in which 69 percent of Americans oppose raising the debt limit, CBS news reporter Chip Reid asked Obama if the problem was that he and others had “failed to convince” the American people that “we have a crisis here.”

    “Let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. You know, the public is not paying close attention to the ins and outs of how a Treasury auction goes. They shouldn’t. They’re worrying about their family, they’re worrying about their jobs. They’re worrying about their neighborhood. They have got a lot of other things on their plate. We’re paid to worry about it.”

    American public seems to be starting to understand how the National debt is affecting their pocketbook. The professional politicians appear to have failed basic Econ 101.
