Obama: Good Times Are Here Again

On Friday, Obama touted the jobs report as great news. As if we just don’t know how good the economy is. He took the opportunity to remind us because we dummies don’t understand too good. He has to explain it, over and over, until we get the message.

He told us how the unemployment, now below 5%, is excellent news. He talked up the economy, while at the same time the stock market was going south. It’s all good.

“The United States of America right now has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. I know that’s still inconvenient for Republican stump speeches as their doom and despair tour plays in New Hampshire. I guess you cannot please everybody,” Obama said.

The unemployment rate supposedly dropped below 5%, but 51% of people still see economic conditions as poor. Must be a tough sell, not just to Republicans.

When you fill in the voids and blanks in Obama’s rhetoric you come to some strange conclusions. We know that when people’s unemployment runs out or they can’t find work and come off the roles, they don’t count.

From the Heritage’s Daily Signal:

The “real” unemployment rate in January remained unchanged from December at 9.9 percent. Almost six million Americans worked part-time in January but would have accepted full-time jobs if they could have found them, according to the bureau.

So is Obama saying that when their unemployment runs out, and they still can’t find work, that it’s a good thing? Yes. He boasts about the decline in numbers when more people are not counted. Way to go, Obama.

It’s no surprise, Obama can ignore the undercurrent in America that is not happy with his job performance or the effects his policies have on America. Now he whistles past the unemployed and underemployed people in a similar fashion. Then he calls it good news.

    This asshat must believe his own bullshit. Stunning. 90 million Americans are out of work and this is a success? Maybe in his world. One only needs to drive around and see all the businesses closed, or “everything is on sale” signs. I’ve seen multiple business and industrial parks completely empty. How great is the economy when a Pizza Huts or Walmarts close? Asshole!

    Further, the idiot announced that he wants a $10 a barrel tax placed on crude oil since prices are so low to fix our crumbling bridges and highways. Yeah, as if that would ever be rescinded. Plus what ever happened to that Trillion Dollar stimulus that was for roads and bridges. Oh yeah, that got looted by the lefty crony capitalists posing as green energy and unions that recycled a percentage back to the DNC. Only one-half a percent (500 million) was spent for roads and bridges. The rest was stolen.

    Fortunately, Speaker Ryan said that the $10 request was dead on arrival. Batears is a special kind of deaf or stupid to even suggest it. Low oil prices are the first relief this country has had in 7 years. of course this is why he wants to kill it off.

    I can hardly wait until next January 20.

    Oil tax, gas tax? I only drive now maybe twice a year to get a bottle of Aloe Vera skin lotion for a drop or two on my third wipe with toilet paper so I don’t have to wash my undies as often. Don’t raise tax on this important product.
    Come on administration and congress, be useful idiots. 🙂

      You know, come to think of it, the price of gold is down 600 dollars off its highs, so how much could they tax that? And if the value of the dollar goes up then shouldn’t our taxes go down? Just saying….

        And if the Chinese currency replaces the dollar we won’t have to pay anything. What’s it called, a Yen? Why did the Yen cross the road?
        I got a funny email the other day. To such a question Brian Williams would say…I crossed the road with the Yen. Guess what difference Hillary would declare?

    Nothing but the same old clap trap from the Fuhrer Obama. By now it’s amazing or plain stupid that anyone would believe this. I know a lot of people who are unemployed or underemployed don’t believe it at all of course. And those who see their wages stagnated don’t believe it either.
