Back from fundraising, Obama says
the economy is still his top priority

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 4/6/2013 9:28:30 AM

Hi, everybody. Our top priority as a nation, and my top priority as President, must be doing everything we can to reignite the engine of America’s growth: a rising, thriving middle class. That’s our North Star. That must drive every decision we make. Now, yesterday, we learned that our businesses created 95,000 new jobs last month. That’s about 500,000 new jobs this year, and nearly 6.5 million new jobs over the past three years. But we’ve got more work to do.

95 thousand new jobs? Where did the extra 7000 come from? Thin air? He cannot even regurgitate the numbers the lame bs department has put out?

Amazing that he doesn´t seem to connect "the economy" with anything he´s done to destroy it.

Or does he? Given the increasing and alarming number of people now not working or collecting some form of government assistance, one could pretty assuredly state that Obama wants things this way, because he is doing nothing to reverse it.

Fundraising? I thought he was out there for two weeks trying to turn firearms into weapons of mass destruction that are only safe in the hands of government goons. My mistake.

Still his top priority? I´m sure it is, breaking the back of democracy, and giving gifts of taxpayers´ money to the faithful. Push on great one, you´ve got a few years left to finish the job. Tax me! Tax me! Help me pay my fair share.

Notice how the amount of money "fund raised" is missing. You can bet that the trip cost taxpayers five times what was squeezed from those West coast idiots.

Further proof that figures don´t lie but liars figure.
5 million jobs created, but no mention that more than 5 million left the labor force to become wards of the taxpayers.

Well, couldn´t prove it by me. I submit that the economy is essentially at a negative trending standstill. A Depression in everything but name.

The stock market advance is purely an artifact of the state of the world wide economy. That is that there is no place safe for resources. It is a sad state of affairs that the United States is the least dangerous and as such has drawn capital from just about everywhere, including all that newly printed money from the Fed.

I´m just waiting on the Gov here to start confiscating any sums over three million in retirement accounts. Think you would have much luck initiating an annuity with a gov IOU?

The Obama family economy is booming but the rest of the United States with it´s taxpayers are in dire straits. It just plain sucks out here and this bozo does desperately wrong things.

I don´t believe a word he reads off of his teleprompter.

It looks like we won´t have much to write for the next three years. The media, which knows all and tells some, has proclaimed Hillary Clinton the 2016 Democrat nominee. Who can argue? Joe the Delaware Gaffer? Nah? Clinton had breakfast with Biden this week to break the news. And lunch with Obama to get their stories straight about the lethal Benghazi screw-up. She assured him she won´t critically distance herself from him for another two years. Some of his campaigners signed on to the Clinton campaign-that´s-pretending-not-to-be--yet. And some senators profess adoration.

Montana´s Attorney General Tim Fox has taken a stand against revealing the identities of concealed weapon permit holders. All 50 states now have laws permitting qualified individuals to own and carry concealed firearms. But emotions have flared over identifying all those as a class. A firestorm of controversy erupted last winter when a suburban New York newspaper, citing the public´s right to know, published the names and addresses of all licensed handgun owners in two counties.

Tonight, millions of middle class Americans will go to sleep worried - worried about a job, worried about health care, worried about whether they can ever get ahead. While the bills stack up, many middle class families wonder whether there’s ever going to be enough money left over at the end of the month to save for retirement or college tuition. All the while, an out-of-touch government in Washington continues to abuse its power and put special interests first while hard working Americans are left to pay the bill.

Hi everybody. On Wednesday, I spoke about what we need to do as a country to build a better bargain for the middle class — to make sure everyone who works hard has a chance to get ahead in the 21st century economy. You see, over the past four and a half years, America has fought its way back from the worst recession of our lifetimes. We saved the auto industry, took on a broken health care system and invested in new American technologies to reverse our addiction to foreign oil.

Vietnam president meets Obama in Oval

What a difference 18,262 days makes. President Obama interrupted his campaign for somebody to do something about the nation´s economy to meet in the Oval Office with Truong Tan Sang Thursday. He´s the president of Vietnam, the country whose name is seared into the American psyche from the lost war. You may recall the U.S. and Communists argued over what shape their peace-talk table would be in 1968. The two presidents solved that problem yesterday; they didn´t have one. Obama was an infant an that time. So, he´s losing his own guerrilla war now much the same way in Afghanistan.

One way to look at President Obama´s speech tour today: President Obama takes his firm commitment to grow the American economy on the road to urge creation of thousands of new jobs to expand the middle-class. [Snip] Another way to look at Obama´s tour: Lord spare us, the nation´s most addicted campaigner begins -- what? -- the 84th call on somebody to do something about the stubbornly stagnant economy to finally create hundreds of thousands of new jobs he promised four years ago. Obama has pivoted to the jobs meme so often he needs new soles on his shoes.

Just as the plentiful polemics about the emotional Zimmerman-Martin case began to wane, President Obama re-inserted himself. His 2,156 words were both admirable and puzzling, promising and empty. In terms of his over-promising in 2007-08, Obama´s remarks were wan. almost gratuitous. To the minor extent that Obama’s been a leader, he´s a reluctant one. He´s an exhorter, full of "you-should´s" and infrequent "I will´s." Lots of "I´s" in Obama talk. Not many "We´s." For the first time in our memory Obama´s words seemed heartfelt. We say "seemed" because like many Americans we´ve grown suspicious.

Hi, everybody. Three years ago this weekend, we put in place tough new rules of the road for the financial sector so that irresponsible behavior on the part of the few could never again cause a crisis that harms millions of middle-class families. As part of that reform, we set up the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the first-ever independent consumer watchdog with one job: to protect families from that sort of behavior. Two years ago, I nominated a man named Rich Cordray, a former attorney general from Ohio, to run this consumer protection bureau. But Republicans in the Senate refused to give

Get out your cellphone. Set the alarm for 58 minutes from now. When it sounds, you´ll know how long it takes Detroit police to answer an emergency 911-call. That once bustling place has the highest violent crime rate of major American cities. Detroit has about 700,000 people, more than 80% black. In the 1950´s it had nearly two million as the nation´s fourth-largest city. Thursday, their city became the largest US municipality to declare bankruptcy. Others will likely follow. And in a disturbing way those festering financial problems locally are likely precursors of a similar simmering national debt dilemma.

"She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State.

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
