Obama: Romney Not Very "Qualified To Think About The Economy As A Whole"
RCP Video ^ | 7-13-2012 | Barack Obama

Posted on 07/13/2012 8:28:07 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

"When some people question why I would challenge his Bain record, the point I've made there in the past is, if you're a head of a large private equity firm or hedge fund, your job is to make money. It's not to create jobs. It's not even to create a successful business - it's to make sure that you're maximizing returns for your investor. Now that's appropriate. That's part of the American way. That's part of the system. But that doesn't necessarily make you qualified to think about the economy as a whole, because as president, my job is to think about the workers. My job is to think about communities, where jobs have been outsourced," President Obama said in an interview with Charlie Rose that aired on CBS' morning program "This Morning." More will air on CBS' "Sunday Morning."

Look who's talking now. Straight from the "Expert"'s mouth.

This is the same interview with Charlie Rose when he said he needs to tell better stories to Americans.

Yeah, we’re much better off with a guy that doesn’t understand any piece of the economy, including blowing gazillions of dollars on government spending.

Charlie Rose is utterly without intelligence or wisdom. This would be why Obama said this utterly stupid, completely obtuse, vividly misrepresentative and vapidly childish comment. Any adult would have swatted it like the fly it is.

Charlie Rose, however, is not an adult, just a very old teenager.

More proof that our dear leader is a moron. Tell us, Obama, about your business experience - either creating private-sector jobs or creating profit.

That is why Charlie Rose interview is PERFECT.

Some Dems would be doing double facepalm, as more of the interview is being leaked trickle by trickle.

Obama is an excellent example of stupid people who have no clue how stupid they are because they don’t know what a smart person knows.

Ignorance - and a big mouth - are bliss.

Obama has no success in public or private sector

Look at his investments with OUR money.

Bankrupt companies do not employees

Hey Obumma, making money is ALL about creating jobs! Mitt has forgotten more than you will ever know about the economy.

When you talk about the economy as a whole it should be spelled “hole” the way your lame schemes work.

Obama: Romney Not Very "Qualified To Think About The Economy As A Whole"

The community organizer usurper thinks HE is qualified???? Romney hand has successful led companies and rescued the Salt Lake Olympics. On the other hand, Hussein, the socialist bastard, hasn't done anything but run up the debt at a blinding rate and put more people out of work than any one else ever has!

I think everyone is missing a salient point in this discussion; one that has done untold damage to America over the last 3.5 -5 years, and holds dire consequense for its future.

The point is that in the liberal world, obama is 100% right. Romney looks as the economy from a capitalist standpoint, for the most part, and especially relative to the liberal POV. It is basically an apolitical approach; get the government out of the way of small business and investment.

In obama’s world that is exactly 180 degrees out of phase. Liberals see the economy as something that will give them more and more political control. Whether it’s punitive taxation, enslavement to the state through welfare programs, destroying unsanctioned industry through regulation, etc; it is ALL part of the economic plan of control Thus Romney is NOT suited to look at the economy as a whole, becasue he is not a liberal.

Just my 2 cents.

So both sides think of themselves as the saner half. Until reality catches up with them, and smack them right in the chop.

No matter what they (or we) think, reality is a b!tch.

“It’s not even to create a successful business - it’s to make sure that you’re maximizing returns for your investor”

This explains Obama’s ignorance rather succinctly.

Hmmm... I would be interested in debates that have candidates work out a few timed math problems- on a screen where we can watch as they work the problem. That’s not an economy but it would be interesting.

If I was on Romney's team...I could make a KILLER commercial with these words: Compairing his experience in prior to the 2008 election to Romney's. It would be EPIC.

It ends with..."So, Mr, President, whose lack of experience are you referring to?"

Coming from the guy who, if judged on actual ability and content of character, might--might--be qualified to work as a low speed yo-yo operator... We so desperately need that fool out of there come January.

Whereas, zero, who never had a real job or had to meet a payroll (it was above his paygrade) is now an expert on economics!!

It is to laugh. Zero is such a drooling moron that he is giving drooling morons a bad name!!

I wouldn’t pay Obama watch my dog. After a day with dear leader the dog would be peeing on the carpet, eating food off the table, and trying to bite me.

Comparing Obama’s business abilities to Romney’s, is like comparing Donald Duck to Donald Trump.
