Those mean old Republicans. . . . . .
They just keep on making the economy worse. . . .
Just think how bad it would be if the RATS hadn't had control for his first two years.
I would like to see a full accounting of those so-called 4 million new jobs! ! ! ! !

He claims 4.3 million new jobs in 27 months.

Which is slightly less than 160,000 new jobs per MONTH.

Which pales in comparison to almost 380,000 new unemployment claims per WEEK!

Actually, the Occupier said “The private sector is doing fine.”. Did he walk THAT statement back? In his demented world, “the economy” means the health of an overbearing and intrusive centralized government.

Green jobs are also added into the mix

The Obama Administration admitted that antiques dealers, Salvation Army workers, bicycle shop clerks, school bus drivers, even oil lobbyists are all counted as “green jobs.”

The criminality is astounding and will never be prosecuted under social justice black is the new tephlon

This lie blew up in his face so fast he’s trying to back out.

Who is stupid enough to believe his turnaround?

(that was rhetorical)

This Quote at 20 seconds, then listen to Bill Clinton brag about “growing jobs in Small Business, Manufacturing, and Green Energy”, Where are the Jobs?

Meet the Press, Sept 2010 Bill Clinton Interview;

Bill Clinton “they’re trying to create this atmosphere of attention deficit disorder”

Diagnosis from the Doctor of Democracy;
http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/02/17/the_2nd_anniversary_of_porkulus

“Obviously Obama has BDD, Budget Deficit Disorder. It’s akin to Attention Deficit Disorder. It’s a condition where a person is easily distracted, has difficulty staying focused on an individual activity for any period of time, and I’ve looked here, I think the symptoms of BDD, Budget Deficit Disorder, may include being easily distracted, you miss details, you forget things, you frequently switch from one activity to another, have difficulty maintaining focus on one task. You become bored with a task after only a few minutes, unless doing something enjoyable, and you have no ability to listen.”

Yes, we just discussed this disorder too, where you keep saying something false is true, probably akin to 'Lying to the Diary'...I'll give the old guy a pass, it's the younger Democrats that may have to face reality. Dr Democracy, paging Dr Democracy...

His blaming Bush mantra has gotten a bit worn. He needs a new villain. Congress fits the bill, especially with the help of Reid blocking legislation. That opens the way for Obama to blame the Republicans in Congress.

Of course, he has been running against Congress since last year, when Team Obama got the idea to run against the obstructionist Congress.

Notice how, with Obama, nothing is ever his fault. Every ill is something’s or someone else’s fault — be it Bush or Congress or the Republicans or the tsunami in Japan or snow in the mid West or a government holiday, etc.

4.3 million new jobs in 27 months.
160,000 new jobs per MONTH.

380,000 new unemployment claims per WEEK.

==

That means 39,800 new jobs per WEEK or about 1/10th of the number of jobs needed to get to even.

And, the 380,000 new claims only add to the 5.97 million currently getting unemployment benefits.

These figures, of course, to not take into account those who have exhausted benefits and are, thus, no longer counted in the UE3 figures.

If only we were like CHina, big government, no discussion of deficits, forcing people in jobs and slavery, and then, it would be paradise as mismanagement would be swept under the rug, abortions of pesky projects, people, children, health care etc. would run rampant... fudge the results, power of the pen, lie and signature of the king kind of cool... no need for taxpayers with slaves right.. that disapears then slaves are forced, right? Or are they? (sarc off)

Loser.

Man,I was sick and tired of this talking bunghole years ago..and he just keeps talking and parading around in the spotlight.
His only accomplishment was manipulating a unwanted ObamaCare, more than a dozen failed green companies, plus producing a useless electric car that was likely built better in 1903!

He is not clueless. He fully expects the citizens to swallow every one of his LIES.

The greatest orator of our time. /s

Michael Bechloss with this one appearance on the Don Imus show goes to the head of the line for the dumbest historian ever. How so? Listen as he proclaims Barack Obama the smartest President ever in the entire history of the United States. Talk about Obama Derangement Syndrome:

This is a good example of Obama moving the goalposts. He's using the time frame of the so-called recovery, but he's been in office for about 40 months now. (And had a Dem-controlled Congress for his 1st two years.)

His administration's per-month "job creation" is more like 100k, so it's even more putrid than what he's claiming.
