UNEMPLOYMENT NO JOKING MATTER MR. OBAMA
So how does Mr. Obama respond to this jobs failure? He laughs and make a joke of it. Before making a trip to Puerto Rico, (why??), Obama held a photo op meeting with his White House, "Jobs Council," in which he was asked a question by the press concerning the promise of millions of jobs as a result of the failed stimulus. His reply was a snicker and, "Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected."
Ha,ha,he,he, so funny Barack. Millions of Americans out of work most due to your failed economic policy and you attempt to be Jay Leno and crack jokes about it when asked why your stimulus isn't working. Well, to the millions your economic policy has put out of work unemployment IS NOT a laughing matter. They are struggling day to day just trying to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads while you make light of the failure of your stimulus.
Of course when the flak started flying after Obama's snide remark, The White House immediately started the spin machine to try and show just how many jobs the stimulus has created or saved. Numbers which don't match the unemployment picture and cannot be verified because they are pulled out of mid air to try and make a failure look like a success.
During a speech earlier this week Obama claimed that the last thing on his mind before he went to sleep and the first thing on his mind when he woke was unemployment and those who are suffering from it. Now, we have heard this before I go to sleep and when I wake claim on nearly every issue in which Obama has spoken since becoming President. It's amazing how many different subjects he can think about in the few moments before he dozes off and when his eyes open in the morning.
But IF and this is a big, "if," he actually does think about those unemployed before he sleeps and when he wakes, in light of his glib remarks during his so called, "jobs council," meeting, he must be doing so with a smile on his face as he laughs about their plight and pats himself on the back in his delusional fantasy that he is the Mr. Wizard of jobs and without him the whole country would be in a mess. Wait, it is and he did it!
