Do liberals realize that during the Reagan re-election year economic growth was
7.1%. Now it is 1.5%. Growth in this country during the Obama term has been flat
lined and that is NOT hope and change. That is misery.
Haha, what spin dude? Love it. You claim conservatives I call out are correct by
pointing to other things: oh yeah? Obama isn't in London, but his wife is,
so there! Priceless. Did you criticize former first ladies for
trips on our dime? Hypocrite?When you referred to the projections
in the memo about unemployment, did you think to including these disclaimers
included with the memo? "It should be understood that all
of the estimates presented in this memo are subject to significant margins of
error, there is the more fundamental uncertainty that comes with any estimate of
the effects of a program. Our estimates of economic relationships and rules of
thumb are derived from historical experience and so will not apply exactly in
any given episode. Furthermore, the uncertainty is surely higher than normal now
because the current recession is unusual both in its fundamental causes and its
severity."How dishonest of you. What is it with you guys? If you
have the goods why do you make so much stuff up? Also,
"anointed one": it's not clever when Hanitty does it, it sure
ain't when you do.
Mark,No, the quote is NOT out of context.Jared Bernstein, the
former chief economist and economic advisor to Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a
report along with Christina Romer, the chairwoman of President Barack
Obama’s Council of Economic Advisors, in January 2009 predicting the
less-than-8-percent unemployment rate. The report was entitled The
Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan.You are
saying Christina Romer, the chair of his council of economic advisors, is NOT
one of his people? you are right, BO's not in London, but
Michelle is - on our dime!Romney is campaigning - sure, but he has
no full time job. BO HAS a full-time job, which he is neglecting (actually it
is GOOD when he neglects his job, because he does so much damage when he
implements his policies.If BO is so focused on jobs, why won't
he pressure harry reid to act on the two dozen jobs bills the house has sent to
the senate?No problem with the conservative comments, you just
cannot abide any criticism of your failed annointed one. Nice spin, though.
"The private sector is doing fine" Barack Obama July 2012
sammyg, you are using that quote out of context.Chris B, the
president, nor his people, never claimed unemployment would not reach 8%. If you
think he did, provide the quote. Don17, the president is not in
London vacationing or otherwise. He is in the White House today. He has been
talking about jobs and he has been trying to get the jobs bill passed. Just
because you are not informed doesn't mean he hasn't been doing it. Whatintucket, yes, all that road work, besides giving us functional
roads also provides jobs. And yes, while the president is talking about Bain (I
haven't heard him talking about the Olympics) he is campaigning after all.
That's okay with you isn't it? After al Mitt Romney is campaigning, so
it should be okay for the guy he is running against to run shouldnt it? And, yes
President Obama is talking about jobs and trying to get his jobs act passed. Four comments by conservatives, and all of them are mistaken. Is it too
hard for you guys just to use the truth?
Looks like plenty of infrastructure spending in Utah. Roadwork galore. Its all
about jobs. Obama is doing all he can to talk about Bain Capital, the Olympics,
etc. anything but jobs. It wouldn't matter who was going against Obama now.
ANyone would do better.
Official WhiteHouse response: Chirp Chirp Chirp! The crickets are chirping! Why
no official response? Oh yes, the President is on vacation in London outsoursing
dollars hiding from hungry Americans in order to stroke the Ego and avoid the
disaster that is the United States economy! Obama has failed!
@sammygActually nobody built that because Republicans keep blocking
infrastructure spending which is what Obama was referring to with that comment.
Our economy is lousy, but most developed countries would be happy to exchange
our growth rates for theirs right now.
So 3 years and trillions of dollars after barack said unemployment wouldnt reach
8%,it's STILL over 8%?
"You didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen..." And who's economic policies are responsible for this 1.5% rate?Go Mitt!
