The President forgets

Wow. The same day I post a chart showing that one-third of the unemployed in this country have been out of work for over a year and that the rate skyrocketed under Obama, he admits to sometimes forgetting how bad things are:

Now, I can see a man or a woman dealing with day-to-day existence (work, kids, &c.) sometimes forgetting just how bad things got in 2008-09 and just how bad they still are; they have a lot on their plates.

But, Mr. President? Sir? Dude? Umm….

THIS IS YOUR JOB! THIS IS ALL YOU HAVE ON YOUR PLATE, YOU SCHMUCK!!

(Sorry for shouting there.)

Honest to Pete. When economic hard times hit, it is the job of the government to figure a way out of the mess. (Hint for Barack: spend less, tax less, regulate less. Listen to Warren Harding. ) That is what you are paid to do, sir.

We have a 15-trillion dollar (and growing) debt, we borrow 40 cents of every dollar we spend, our out of control entitlements are going to eat us alive, our real unemployment rate is 14.5%, fewer people are in the work force than at any time in the last 30 years, companies are not hiring (hence those long-term unemployed) because they have no faith in your unicorns and rainbows plan for the future, and… and……

And you forget?

Let me help you remember. Here’s a list of the ten worst states for unemployment (1):

42 SOUTH CAROLINA 8.9
43 FLORIDA 9.0
43 GEORGIA 9.0
43 MISSISSIPPI 9.0
43 NEW JERSEY 9.0
47 NORTH CAROLINA 9.7
48 DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA 9.8
49 CALIFORNIA 11.0
50 RHODE ISLAND 11.1
51 NEVADA 12.0

Does that jog your memory?

Oh, wait. Never mind. I’m being unfair. (2) You have much more important things on your mind, such as your next tee-time and palling around with the Hollywood glitterati. Silly me. No wonder you have trouble remembering people who have lost their their jobs, their savings, their homes, their hope. (“Hope.” Does that sound familiar to you? I forget…)

November can’t come fast enough.

PS: Yeah, I’m being a partisan hack and bagging on him for making a passing comment and using a common rhetorical device (“We’re all guilty…”). So what? President Amateur richly deserves it.

PPS: Romney 2012.

Footnotes:
(1) Well, nine and D.C. And these figures don’t count “labor force participation,” meaning the real rates would be higher if those who’ve stopped looking for work were counted.
(2) And probably racist, too. Naturally.

    He “forgets” because his concentration is focused on the mirror and his teleprompters.
    He’s a professional at one thing – community agitating and deflecting faults elsewhere.
    His characteristics and psychology – Pathological Liar : Narcississtic Personality Disorder
    If it wasn’t for the reflection of what he sees as deity in his mirror, he would be an atheist.
    And his model for the country is what he’s been indoctrinated to design since his Islamic/Communist upbringing – an America brought to its knees before the rest of the world.

    The thing that jumps out to me is that the unemployment numbers are not so unreal, they are surreal.

    The guy not only lives in an echo chamber, it substitutes as an intellectual vacuum, too.

    If he worked as hard as he plays, there would be a lot more getting done, and considering his socialist agenda maybe it’s a good thing his focus is on his own deityness.

    Laser focus on jobs my patootie…

    And of supreme importance in all this is his stance on lap lickers being able to marry. As referenced above, we do not work for Obhammud; he works for us and if we do not want him around anymore, we have options come November.

  4. Jiji says:

    Lap lickers? What a hoot, Drew! Haven’t there been reports of Obummer experimenting with lap licking? Must have liked it since he is a champion for same sex marriage. Will he dump Moochelle once he is banished from office? Film at eleven…..

    I think the pResident has a whole different take on that saying “The Buck Stops Here”. With him, it actually stops here. As in, it no longer exists, for all practical purposes. That was one heckuva misunderstanding.
