More Delusional Economic Nonsense from Obama

Barry Soetoro Obama remains his own worst enemy. He’s like a cocaine addict or alcoholic that refuses to admit he has a problem. As long as he denies he has a problem he will be unable to take steps to fix it. In his clouded brain there is nothing to fix–things on the economic front are swell.

Really? Private job creation is fine?

Obama signed his economic stimulus package into law on 17 February 2009.

In March 2009 U.S. civilian noninstitutional population was 220,317,000 and there were 140,887,000 employed. Unemployed stood at 13,161,000. Number of folks “not in the labor force?” 81,038,000.

So where do we stand as of May 2012? Our civilian noninstitutional population increased to 242,784,000. The number of employed now stands at 142,287,000. Unemployed are 12,720,000. And the number of people not in the labor force has soared to 87,958,000.

Mr. President, are you this totally clueless? Are you really that uninformed?

In the three plus years that Obama has been President our population of potential workers has grown by 2.4 million. Yet, there are only 1,400,000 more people working today than in March of 2009. The only thing Obama has achieved is that he has driven 6,920,000 Americans from the labor force.

Yet, the ignorant Mr. Obama continues to insist that the Private sector is doing great and that he has created 4 million jobs. Bullshit. Deal with the actual numbers.

And thanks to “FormerLiberal” for the following:

  • Pingback: “Jolt” : NO QUARTER

  • Phillip Armstrong

    I guess if Larry Johnson repeats the same bullshit analysis often enough he thinks he can make it so, at least in his mind.
     

    You are not a serious person, as your analysis of the data is very very narrow to server your political means.

    A few questions for you:

    1. HOW MANY OF THOSE LEAVING THE WORKFORCE ARE FROM RETIRMENTS OR BECAUSE OF DEMOGRAPHICS?

    > you mention 6,920,000 people leaving the work force? lets assume your number is correct. more than 50% of those who have left the work force are from record retirements of babyboomers. it is mostly simple demographics. Labor participation has been falling since 2000 or well before Obama. So I am not sure what you point is? Yes, alot of people are retiring and will no longer need jobs.
     
    don’t believe me then read some actual objective analysis instead of LJ’s BS take on the numbers:

    http://donaldhtaylorjr.wordpress.com/2012/06/01/cbo-report-on-labor-force-participation/
     
    2. HOW MANY JOBS HAVE BEEN CREATED FROM THE DEPTH OR BOTTOM OF THE RECESSION?

    > again by your numbers there has been a net increase in jobs 1,400,000 since Feb 2009. That is pretty good, given the jobs losses from the biggest recession since the Great Depression continue well into 2009, with unemployment reaching a high of about 10% in December 2009.

    According to BLS the number of employeed bottomed in December 2009 at 136,426,000, therefore the actual number of jobs created under Obama since the bottoming of the recession, was 5,861,000.

    That is better job creation than the last two recessions/recoveries.

    3. WHAT THE ACTUAL EMPLOYMENT RATE BE IF THERE WERE NO GOVERNMENT JOB LAYOFFS?   

    > if you factor out the largest drop in local and state government job cuts, which are largely being caused by Republican Governor austerity (at least 650,000 government job cuts),  the employment picture even looks better for Obama.

    The WSJ says without the government job cuts the unemployment rate would be 7.1%, which is actually lower than the 7.2% unemployment rate that Reagan had when he was re-elected and Reagan actually had a net increase in government jobs.

    “Unemployment Rate Without Government Cuts: 7.1%.”  ”If there were as many people working in government as there were in December 2008, the unemployment rate in April would have been 7.1%, not 8.1%.” 
    http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2012/05/08/unemployment-rate-without-government-cuts-7-1/

    THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE UNDER OBAMA IS LIKELY TO BE WHERE IT WAS UNDER REAGAN? HOW CAN THAT BE SO BAD, GIVEN THAT OBAMA HAS FACED FAR MORE SIGNIFICANT HEADWINDS THAN REAGAN EVER DID!

    Reagan did not face:

    > a huge weak housing market
    > government jobs actually increased under Reagan
    > there was very little externalities like Europe
    > Reagan actually faced a Congress that would work with him and not bring the econmoy down with debt ceiling votes.

    I am planning to create lots of jobs.  Green jobs of course.  I only need several hundred million in federal funds.  

    When I receive said funds I will send the money off shore and give myself a raise. 

    I will hold a press conference touting the wonders of green energy as I board a plane to an unnamed island somewhere in the Pacific.  This is the “new capitalism” endorsed by the current administration.

    Really. Trust me.

    • Hokma

      The writer’s view is precisely why Europe has had economic misery. More stimulus? What did Obama stimulate in ’09? He gave money we did not have to states to hire government paid workers who had to be laid off due to the recession and when the stimulus money ran out those same people were laid off anyway – which now Obama is now blaming for the bad economy here.  GOP has it right – Dems/Obama are tone deaf.

      “Like I said both isles are full of shit…. ”
      I don’t see a problem with the GOP POV on this at all. Obama is clearly the one playing political campaign games with this.
      ____________________________________

      “Talk about Wall Street burning the candle at both ends….”

      Since “Wall Street” is in Manhattan a majority of those working there are democrats and Obama got more than a fair share of their support in ’08. But considering his clear anti-business policies, I cannot blame  most if not all wall Street execs donating to make sure he is not re-elected and to put their money behind one of their own (Romney).
      _______________________________

      “Lets not forget the military/industrial complex and its special interests? ”

      $18 million in donations does not seem like a lot compared to the donations made by the anti-business lobbies like varous tree-hugger factions and labor unions.

    and this is how he walked it back.  what has he done about it — talked.  another oops moment.

    “It’s absolutely clear the economy is not doing fine,” the president said while sitting alongside Philippines President Benigno Aquino in the Oval Office. “That’s the reason I had a press conference. That’s why I spent yesterday, the day before yesterday, this past week, this past month and this past year talking about how we can make the economy stronger.”

    • getfitnow

      Let me be clear, I really meant this but I said that because Europe didn’t
      do the other thing so to save the country it was important for me to say
      whatever.

      What a fool.

    • Flop_Flipper

      It’s taken two and a half years to begin talking about how to make the economy stronger. He hasn’t a fucking clue. First he says everything is alright, just peachy, then has a Doh! moment to retract and  mirror what every sane person in the free world has known for literally years.

      Apparently Bill Clinton has rubbed off on Obama. I couldn’t thank him enough!

    • KenoshaMarge

      The only economy he’s been working to make stronger is his own. If he “worked” 1/2 as hard on the economy as he does flitting from fund raiser to fund raiser he might, and I do stress might be more effective.

      Or at least look like he gave a crap.

      And he does sound resentful that he had to have a press conference. Even with pre-chosen media supporters asking the questions he screwed it up.

      Tell me again about how he’s the smartest prezdint ever.

    Is he and his administration coming unhinged? The private sector is
    “fine”–has he lost his mind? As to the intelligence leaks–he is offended that some think his administration would leak this sort of information to gain political advantage. Well, read the NYT account of where it got the data on the procedure for drone kills. Someone is lying. If the NYT didn’t get the information from the Obama people pray tell where did they get it. And Obama’s AG says the reference to “fast and furious” in the recently revealed e-mails didn’t refer to “Operation Fast and Furious” but to a different operation. Clearly this is a group who adhere to the view if they say it is so, it is. I suspect that if the “main stream media” continues to cover up for Obama, the Romney ads will educate those not totally impaired from the “koolade”. Let’s HOPE!

            The Presstitutes are sharks and if they smell blood in the water they will attack.

            BO may be their hero but that won’t stop them. He may learn, as McCain learned, that you can’t trust them. You may think you have them eating out of your hand until you pull back a bloody stump.

            Chuck Todd is a sad example of what passes for a “journalist” in our society today. Wouldn’t make a pimple  on a real journalist]s ass.

    The Democrats are probably all hoping Obama will come down with strep throat or some other reason for losing his voice. 

    As I have mentioned before though, don’t call him on the fact that he says one thing in the morning and the opposite that afternoon.  He’ll find a way to claim that he was telling the truth both times.

    Obama even looks like he knows he is going to lose.

      Are we sure this man isn’t having a nervous breakdown? He looks awful.

    • KenoshaMarge

      I’m not sure his ego will allow him to believe he can lose. What I see if a man who is genuinely offended that anyone is daring to question him.
       
      He got used to the slobbering love affair from the media and thought it would never end. Without them to prop him up, he’s got nothing.
       
      Media types are sharks. And they are beginning to smell blood.

    The Romney camp needs to make an ad which shows Obama in the morning (superimpose the time on the video) saying that  “all’s well with the economy” and juxtapose the second comment today saying the exact opposite (along with the time he said that).
    It shows, if nothing else, that the man will say anything to get elected.  He has no spine, no principles and no sense of what America is about nor of what Americans want for their country.
    A sad example of what passes for quality from the Democrats.

        Romney, Obama’s presumptive opponent this fall, said the president was “really defining what it means to be out of touch with reality.”

      • KenoshaMarge

        Should be apparent to the Obama camp by now that they are not fighting the McCain campaign this time around. This campaign fights back and fights back fast.

        Obama also had a clear advantage in the media, slobbering press agents, and a clear advantage in $$$$.

         Now, still got most of the slobberers but the $$$?
        Romney will come close if not raise more.

    Obama is the biggest headwind we have.

      ”The Titanic is upright and doing fine.””The Hindenburg is aloft and doing fine.””Casey Jones’ train is on the track and doing fine.”
      Romney was too diplomatic in his response.It’s not an extraordinary miscalculation, it’s an extraordinary disconnect from reality.

      • TeakWoodKite

        LOL.

  • FormerLiberal9

     Some people just don’t get the fact that we are hurting economically as a county. They would rather believe the nonsense Obama spews out like he really knows anything about the economy. All the while there are others who just look at each other and say SOS different day.

  • Roninstia

    The Romney campaign hq just broke out the champagne.  There were enough sound bites in this one speech to fuel TV commercials for the entire season.
