if obama can just get a few hundred thousand more people discouraged enough to drop out of the work force he'll get that unemployment rate below 8%......oh and then what a celebration we'll have.
Maybe somebody has explained this already, but in the text above it has Obama saying that he created 4.6 Billion jobs....Billion??? really? How do you do that? We only have 310 million people living in the U.S. including children, and he is saying billion? Has nobody called him out on this or is this a typo or what?
If the republicans controlled both the house and senate jobs probably would have been created. But this is not the case, how can bills get passed with all this bickering and Obama dividing the country.
Only two obstacles that stood in their way: The U.S. Senate headed by one "Horrible" Harry Reid and El Presidente promising to drop veto bombs.
"So what's the prognosis Doctor"
"Well the bad news is there is no improvement in your kidney malfunction but the good news is that we did find cancer in another part of your body so you wont have to worry too much about the kidney problem anymore"
"Thanks Doc, you've made me feel so much better."
Romney is really the 'calm, cool, and collected' person that Obama tried to be 4 years ago. A good commentary on the jobs numbers is here, http://fundamentalrefounding.ning.com/profiles/blogs/disappointing-jobs-report-diminishes-obama-acceptance-speech and I promise it is a short (and good) read!
Mitt Romney needs to keep doing what he did here, listing the '08 promises that Obama didn't fulfill. It wouldn't hurt to point out, either, that during the first two years, his party controlled everything, the Republicans were too outnumbered they couldn't even stop a clock.
Our local NBC station had an intro for the jobs story (political fire they say) but when it came to tell the story they said they weren't ready and went to a different story.
Actually, I thought he struck the right tone. He is calm, and tells the American people the truth and doesn't talk down to us like we're stupid.
As far as the polls...... they don't mean squat as far as predicting who will win in Nov.! Remember that Reagan was behind in the polls at this point in time, and won by a landslide!
The only people that care about the polls are those that take them, the pundits and talking heads on TV.
Don't let the polls get you down. I know everyone wants to armchair quarterback everything about the Romney campaign, but it really isn't helpful. We are all anxious to kick dear leader to the curb, but we can't do that until Nov., so we must show some patience. I really, really do think we are going to win!
I think you will see a big shift towards Romney right after the debates. And Biden will be destroyed by Paul Ryan. When the general public sees how bankrupt Obama and Biden are of ideas, and when they see a few more miserable jobs reports like the one that was released today, I think Obama will go down as badly as Carter did in 1980. Americans just have to agree that they made a mistake electing this guy in the first place. Once they get over that, it will be a lot easier for them to vote for Romney. And I think we're rapidly approaching that point.
MR. President for once I agree with you, this is not good enough because you are not good enough, and that is why we are sending you home. I would recommend no private company hire you because you are a plague, a disease, what you touch turns to crap.
I will give you an example of a moron: Allahpundit at HotAir...probably the most dishonest and idiotic blogger there is...A TOTAL MORON but for some reason he is kept by HotAir...he belongs to the HuffPo and should be canned:
He has a blog about Gallup today! About how Obama is at 52 percent Approval, the best since Bin Laden...he does his usually little childish EEYORE CRAP and starts playing people as he always does with no facts and no truth...HE OMITS FACTS DELIBERATELY and CUTS AND PASTES WHATEVER HE WANTS FOR HIS TWO YEAR MENTALITY:
Here is why:
The 52 percent survey...comes from ALL ADULTS....not Registered Voters or Likely Voters....in other words ANY ADULT....no sample no party breakdown NOTHING!! So basically they could call 25 Dems, 12 Reps and 10 Indies....they survey a rolling number but my point is the Sample no matter what the size has NO PARTY BREAKDOWN....that is why it is Adults....if there is a party breakdown...Gallup would have easily oversampled DEMS because that happens with usually with All Adults or Registered Voters. So the 52 percent could be DNC Delegates on the Floor....what Allahpundit does not tell people is that the 52 percent is from ADULTS not Registered Voters or Likely Voters....Many people have pointed it out on the thread YET HE DOES NOT CORRECT OR UPDATE. It jumped from 49 percent by when you do Adults you can get anything you want.
2. He rambles again about inthe rolling average head to head....Obama leads 48/45...Okay not that is with Registered Voters....which always skews Dems by 3-5 percent...so he claims a bounce right??? WRONG!!!!
Yesterday on 9/6 it was 47/46.....which it has been for the past 10-11 days...Obama up 1..Remember Registered Voters....Gallup still have not changed to Likely Voters.
Another thing Allahpundit omits....THAT ONE POINT came after both Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton spoke at the DNC....
SO the one point Obama gained from yesterday at 47 to today at 48....came after the MUCH EXALTED MICHELLE AND BILL SPEECHES....HE GAINED A BIG DEAL 1 POINT!!!!!!
That is pathetic....1 lousy point from Bill and Michelle because both speeches would have been in today's total by Gallup!! (AGAIN AMONG REGISTERED VOTERS!!!)
Now look at Rasmussen among likely voters.....
Obama's Approval.....46 percent......Disapproval 54 percent....see a difference???
Romney is up 46/45 and Obama gained one point but again after both Bill and Michelle spoke....Obama's own speech was a disaster!!
Reuters which we know slants left of Saturn.....Has Obama up 46/44(LIKELY VOTERS)....He received a 1 point bounce from his convention...1 point!!! But then again Reuters does not break out their sample either...I would imagine they oversampled Dems knowing Reuters!
Did Obama really say he created 4.6 billion jobs or is that a typo?
The economy tries to correct itself regardless of what the President does. The premise that he is creating jobs is a bunch of bullcrap. Looking at his policies they are all anti-business, so he hasn't even cleared the way for job creation. He has stifled it.
I can't wait until the debates when he tries taking credit for things such as drilling for oil. I hope Romney is prepared to shove it right up Obama's arse because Obama has tried to stop exploration for oil at every turn. He could not stop what contracts were made under Bush or what is on private land. Bring it on you credit stealing jerk.
I heard him too and it sounded like billion. Seeing the constituency he has, they will repeat it verbatim and spend the lie and believe it.
The man and his ilk should be neutered, disenfranchised and be required to curl their hair like DWS.
I wouldn't hold it against Obama for accidentally saying billion. I've heard people on both sides (including me) accidentally say million instead of billion or vice versa. However, if they repeat it they are fools. They would make themselves look like bigger idiots than they already do.
He is a very busy man. He is tired. Didn't you watch the video on the Jon Stewart post? He and his teleprompter have been traveling extensively to all 57 states with the press corpse in tow, sometimes speaking to crowds among which he sees many fallen war heroes using breathalyzers.
Ehhhh, I'm not so sure. It's Kenya, not the United States. Of course his brother is a better man, but I'm not sure what their values are there. I know Christians were in a church that was burned to the ground with them in it....and Obama's cousin (or relation of some kind) led it....or the movement at least.
I can forgive him saying billion instead of million...that happens a lot on both sides. I cannot forgive him for saying 57 states. That's something everyone knows to the bone and there's no way being tired would make them get that wrong. If the wrong word just popped out....ok. But he thought about it and said 57 like he wasn't sure about a question on a test.
It is not a tie Right Scoop....and you will be made to feel that way all the way through October so get use to it! You rely on polls from PPP, Gallup, Ras, Mason-Dixon, Marist and others so YOU ARE AT THEIR WHIM!! You hang on their numbers like a God....but they are not....trust your instincts and look at Wisconsin and other recent elections. You are no going to get some poll that shows you Romney up by 7 or such....that is a fact. The pollsters must make money and keep people tuned! SO no you are not getting any relief and that is the problem. Conservatives for all their talk live on Liberal Food. And until we Grow Up and stop acting like some Liberal Poll group is going to tell you what you want to hear then too bad!!
YOU ARE NOT GETTING WHAT YOU WANT!! DEAL WITH IT!! I am sick of conservatives whining about the polls. We know who controls them and WHY??? For crying out loud the DOJ is investigating Gallup over their polls....that was announced this past Tuesday!
MSM and OBAMA will keep the belief it is close to keep you guessing and unsure. Me I could care less about any poll. I know there are more of US and I know we are ENTHUSED as heck to Vote and we will be out in force to defeat Obama BIG TIME!! That is all any of us should need. Stop looking for some BS Verification from some liberal pollster or MSM!!
They win when conservatives sit around and whine about how can it be tied!! IT IS NOT TIED!!
And no Romney acted just like he needed to act. Sorry he does not need to act like steamed broccoli to serve your mood! He acted correct and had right temperment!! Acting all angry and seething makes you look stupid! He shows his passion in another way!
obama is saying "don't look at that jobs report, your empty bank account, your past due bills or your empty fridge. Sit in misery another 4 years to see if I can fix something I have no clue how to repair. Oh, and pay no attention to that empty chair behind the curtain"
It's not that he doesn't have a clue...which is bad enough...its that this is being done on purpose. And if he really didn't have a clue, it would be so nice (in my dreams) that he would just say "hey I can't fix this, someone else needs to fix this cuz I don't want to screw up my country anymore than it already is"...... I know I need to wake up and smell the coffee!!! Instead he is doubling down and wants four more years!!!
I dont agree that Mitt should emphasize being presidential when the other guy has the advantage of the presidency to go out there with his propaganda. The reason Reagan won in a landslide was that he took it directly to Jimmy Carter and kept pounding him on his record with things that make it real for people (gas prices, unemployment, the price of food, etc. I just thought Romney's response was weak and nothing we already didnt know.
Obama spins jobs report. Doh!
It takes at least 150,000 new jobs just to match the growing population. 96,000 jobs (whether they are part-time, low-paying, or temporary) doesn't even come close to being a recovery.
It would be just like your bank telling you to put your money in their savings program, even though it only gives 1.5% interest. If you are not making at least 3.5% (the cost of living rises), then you are losing money. It doesn't matter that last month it was 1.4% and the month before it was 1.3%. You are still losing money every month and it is not progress.
"But that's not good enough. We know it's not good enough." - Obama
Yep, it's not good enough. And when I find that my bank is 'not good enough', I start using a different bank.
The bank analogy was a very good one. Keep investing at those rates and you're going to be able to buy a whole lot less when you take the money out than what you could if you spent the money now. A bigger number doesn't mean jack when the dollar is worth less.
Just because jobs are being created doesn't mean we are recovering. We are on a decline.
I think the young unemployed people are beginning to get it. My 25-year-old son told me there is a thing going around facebook which is a sketch of Obama's face and the words (not quoted exactly) "If I'm re-elected President, I promise to do all of the things I promised to do 4 years ago."
Yes, the numbers are trending towards Romney, and "the trend is your friend". At least that's what they say in the stock market world.
What O'failure does not bother to illuminate folks with is this little tidbit. We need at least 150,000 jobs per month just to keep pace with the population growth. This economy is sprinting backwards, it is not improving. It is getting worse.
Obama speaks to folks like they're mushrooms, and many like it that way. More darkness please! OK, now more BS please! OK, now eat me, head first!
Is there anything dumber than a democrat? Nope.
His minions are spinning like tops. Listening to Cavuto and the congress critter on is trying to say it's because of baby boomers retiring. LOL I guess the fact that labor force participation numbers already exclude students or retired is just an 'inconvenient truth'. Total schmucks - all of them.
This needs to get out there, so I'm posting it one more time and it is on point for this thread.
Some people have short memories…..
DO YOU REMEMBER JANUARY 3, 2007?
I’ve been saying this for years, but this email probably explains it
better and more clearly. This is NOT a political message, but rather
a clarification to remind us all of the correct facts.
Remember that on October 9, 2007, 11 months before our “economic
crisis” occurred (that was actually created), the Dow hit its highest
point ever, closing at 14,164.53 and reaching 14,198.10 intra-day
level 2 days later. Unemployment was steady at 4.7%. But things were
already being put in place to create the havoc
we’ve all been experiencing since then. And it all started, as this email explains,
on January 3, 2007. --LFL
I'm sending this to each of you regardless of your party preferences
because I believe it is something you may not have considered.
This tells the story, why Bush was so “bad” at the end of his term.
Don't just skim over this, it's not very long, read it slowly and let
it sink in. If in doubt, check it out!!!
The day the Democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was
actually January 3rd 2007, which was the day the Democrats took over
the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the
The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the
first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.
For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy
that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this: January 3rd, 2007
was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress.
At the time:
The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77
The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%
The Unemployment rate was 4.6%
George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH
Remember the day...
January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House
Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate
Banking Committee. The economic meltdown that happened 15 months
later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL
Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping
5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie
Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!
Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in
2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy.
And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie
Mac? OBAMA And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA
and the Democrat Congress.
So when someone tries to blame Bush. REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007....
THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"
Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and
the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.
Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 &
2009 as well as 2010 & 2011.
In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused
them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough
on spending increases.
For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush
entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running
until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a
massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets.
And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that
very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he
signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the
last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five
years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After
that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that
includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.
If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a
nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted
for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since
I've tried arguing these points to Democrats. They don't care and still say it was Bush's fault.
The dead give-away that it was intentional, for me at least, was when they came out and said the entire world's economic system would collapse if we didn't pass a massive bailout bill immediaty. Three days, I think they said.
Any sane person knows that if you scare the market, it drops. They didn't just scare the market, they terrorized it....knowing there would be a massive, negative response.
This is how far those bastards are willing to go to get power. If and when Romney wins, you can be sure the left will be coming up with another "the sky is falling" scenario to get him out. All of it will be caused by them.
When confronted with facts, most Dems and all leftards use the same catchphrase as DWS: "It doesn't matter".
Because he has a lot of class. He never said a word about Michael Moore's movie and he's keeping silent while the left constantly attacks and blames him for everything. I didn't agree with Bush on everything either, but he stood up and took the blame like a man. It was on his watch and he felt responsible. That's character.
I didn't agree with Bush on everything, but I did wish he had defended himself and stood up to his opponents more often. I was waiting for him to outright drop the hammer on somebody, but he never did.
Yeah, it doesn't matter to them because facts don't agree with them.
You know, Bush has so much class he didn't even try to defend himself on this. He said he's responsible because it happened on his watch. No mention of how he tried repeatedly for Congress to act and the Dems refused to do a thing. He's counting on history to speak the truth for him. I wish he would have defended himself even just a little.
I now realize that YOU know - MORE about what's going on then the Romney staff knows
Why don't you send this info to them - if only to make them aware that
We know - that they don't know - or they don't want to know - what we know
Do you know - what I mean - I hope so because my head hurts!
What I know - is that I can't wait until this is over
