Republicans rooting for failure in economy,Obama campaign says
Los Angeles Time ^ | June 3, 2012 | Jim Puzzanghera

WASHINGTON -- Republicans are hoping the economy continues to struggle so they can win the White House in November and should put those political concerns aside and take steps to boost job creation, top Obama campaign officials said Sunday.

"They need to get off their hands and stop rooting for failure," Stephanie Cutter, Obama's deputy campaign manager, said on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos."

Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod accused Republicans of "high-fiving each other" when bad economic news comes out.

"These are the architects of obstruction and now they’re complaining about the pace of the recovery," Axelrod said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "They should put down their political hats and join us and help solve these problems."

The Democrats will say anything to win. Truth does not matter to them. They will make up anything. Like the Republicans really want the economy to fail so they can win. What a big lie. The Republicans want to see the economy rise to its fullist, guaranteed!

What I find weird is that Barry and his commie lib ‘RATS are working hard to give them what they are “rooting” for.

“They should put down their political hats and join us and help solve these problems.”

Who is ‘us’.

Barry’s budget was voted down 99-0 in the Senate on May 16.

And it went down 414-0 on March 28.

So who exactly is this ‘us’ we are supposed to join with?

“Rooting” for it to be bad, ain’t causing it to be bad...obama has done that for all of us.

The best Georgie can do is the deputy campaign manager? Wouldn’t it be funny if he has to do this every week to have an obama mouth piece. Axelrod, Cutter and Moochelle.

No you already failed. You have no ideas, just saying it is getting better and you need more time because Bush created something too big to fix in 4 years.
what an awful P-resident OF the united S-tates!

Remember when Hillary never hesitated to use the phrase “the worst economy since Herbert Hoover” throughout the 2008 campaign?

Now she’s on the inside - part of the REAL worst economy since Herbert Hoover - and you don’t hear that phrase any more, on any media. Funny, huh?

This is the Republicans fault? The Donkeys have been running things since 2007 and spending us into oblivion. It’s really worked well, don’t you think?

Excuse me? who is it who talked about “the worst economy in 50 years” in ‘92? Who was it that produced 50 news stories a day about high gasoline prices and the pain they caused when W was president? Who was it who rooted for defeat in Iraq? In Vietnam?

You mean like Biden and the Kenyan did during 2010's "Summer of Recovery"?

Interesting - “hoping” for the economy to fail must be much worse than being the architects of that failure...

One bio said born February 22, 1953; IMO Alexrod's definitely an aged 1960-70s radical (spoiled brat).

One Internet source said that his mother Myril Bennett Axelrod, worked for the left-wing New York newspaper,"PM [that] became notorious because of its penetration by Stalinists and others who promoted the Communist Party line on issues both foreign and domestic [that included] PM‘s famed Washington correspondent, I.F. Stone, [who] was subsequently identified as a Soviet agent both in the so-called 'Venona' documents and also by a former top KGB official, Oleg Kalugin."

Maybe whatshisname did not have to wear red diapers but he no doubt learned to hate the likes of Senator Joseph McCarthy whom the “Venona” documents proved a valuable source also to verify the truth of what the Senator was saying. (McCarthy just lacked the charisma of a stack of papers.)

The public now is aware of Pothead Barry's background it's time to publicize all the aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radicals (spoiled brats) and their bratty issue.. now arguably "The Establishment."

What else can they say? We effed it up all by ourselves? They did, but that’s beside the case. This administration is all about, nothing but, blame - period. The worst example of the results of blind diversity ever seen in the course of human history.

Not so much “rooting for failure” as helplessly watching the fiscal train wreck that inevitably occurs whenever socialism is forced on an economy.

If “rooting for failure” will get the Kenyan commie out of there in November, I’m rooting.

Our Dear Leader can squawk all he wants but the simple fact is, HE OWNS THIS ECONOMY. He can blame others, obfuscate, bloviate and generally nauseate all he wants, but the bloom is off his rose. There’s panic inside the Democrat camp because they know they’re past the fail-safe point: no matter what happens it’s too late for the economy to turn around before election day. And even if the numbers do pick up somewhat, it takes time for the pendulum of public opinion to swing back in Obama’s favor.

As the great Peter Vincent said to the vampire in the 1985 classic, FRIGHT NIGHT, “You’re out of time Mr. (insert name here).”

What Repubs are “rooting for” doesn’t affect reality, and that reality is that the economy is headed to a showdown with reality. What policies and regulations 0bama et al have put into and are putting into and wish to put into effect comprise that reality. Nobody ever got a job from someone else “rooting for” something. This is yet again another argument where vague hopes and dreams are supposedly affecting reality, while the fact is that some idiot vandal spray painted his name on your garage door and the reality, whether you think the vandal is a really, really cool guy or you think his name should be broadcast to the neighborhood, or you think he is a destructive little s**t, is that whatever work it took you to pay for that garage door and whatever work it will take you to clean or replace it is your problem and is your reality; inflicted by someone else, on purpose.

“This is the Republicans fault? The Donkeys have been running things since 2007 and spending us into oblivion. It’s really worked well, don’t you think?”

What’s even more amazing is the fact that the election is as close as it is. It’s as though people are unwilling to look at the truth about the economy. My guess is that at the end of the day the polls will be wrong and FUBO will go down to a stunning defeat.

Easy to find and root out failure in Osama Obama campaign.

No matter where you go you will probably step in some. (If you know what I mean!)

I don’t want to hear whose fault it is, I don’t want to hear if they’re happy about it. I want to know what he’s going to do about it. As far as I can tell Obama hasn’t done anything to help us. Does he ever do any actual work? When is he in the office? Fundraising isn’t what he was elected to do, is it?

Yes, Republicans will sabotage the economy in order to prevent Obunghole from sabotaging the economy.

We don’t have to root for it...we already got it!

Dear President Obama,

Like many independent minded Patriots, we as a group are not only greatly concerned with most (if not all) of your policies, but also with your blatant neglect to hold yourself accountable for your obvious incompetence as president of the United States of America.

When you took office in 2009, you did say (and I quote) that you “will be held accountable” for your actions.

Furthermore, in direct reference to turning around the failing economy and getting the country back on track, you concluded “If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

You have failed Mr. President. And you have failed miserably.

Not one thing worthwhile has transpired nor been accomplished during your term.

All of us have had to hold ourselves accountable during this depression.

All of us have had to sacrifice and take responsibility for our actions or inability to “make things work”.

All of us have had to answer to our families and our children.

Now its your turn.

Be a man.

Follow through on your own words, hold yourself accountable for your failure, and do not run for a second term.

America will sincerely appreciate it.

Hoping for some real change,

Me & my friends...

The question I have is, did the Anointed one learn from Illinois how to kill the economy or the other way around. At the moment Illinois is in a race with the Left coast as to who will file for bankruptsy first. Not to mention, when you are dealing with socialists you are dealing with masters of sleaze and mentally challenged people, just look at Queen Nancy, do I have to say more?
