In Saturday's weekly address (taped ahead of time), US President Barack Obama declared, "Our mission isn't just to put people back to work -- it's to rebuild an economy where that work pays; an economy in which everyone who works hard has the chance to get ahead."
That's a mission? Just now that's a mission?
In the weeks leading up to the 2008 presidential election, there was an economic meltdown in the country. And only now is Barack on a mission?
Make no mistake, he rushed to rescue the financial institutions before he was even elected -- he strong-armed the Congressional Black Caucus into supporting the bail-out. He just never did a damn thing for home owners and workers.
It's not like he wasn't hearing that he needed to focus on the economy. Rahm Emanuel stressed that day after day until he left the White House and became mayor of Chicago. Rahm was ignored time and again.
Barack wanted to give the insurance companies a gift: ObamaCare. Half the country hates it, half the country loves it. That's the results all these years later.
He wasted all that time and all that energy on providing Americans with crap. It's not single-payer, it's not universal. It does nothing but take your ability to buy insurance and turn it into your responsibility by law to buy insurance.
Friday, the US Labor Dept. released the latest jobs report. Another bad month with high unemployment (8.2% being the official figure).
Back in June 2009, Joe Biden was saying "we guessed wrong." And apparently never bothered to guess again.
And now another bad jobs report finds Barack again downplaying the unemployment and his own failures. The Mitt Romney campaign issued a press release Friday:
Today, the Obama Administration told Americans “not to read too much into” monthly jobs reports.
As it turns out, they’ve been encouraging Americans to do that for years. But after 41 straight months of unemployment over 8%, you don’t have to read between the lines to see the truth. President Obama’s policies have failed to get America working again.
