David Gregory Challenges Valerie Jarrett on Claim Obama has "Turned the Economy Around" - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse | January 24, 2010 | Brian

Posted on 01/24/2010 11:25:41 AM PST by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of Meet the Press moderator David Gregory today confronting Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett about her claim that Obama has "turned the economy around."

After she made the claim, Gregory interrupted Jarrett and said:

"I'm sorry - you can't say you've turned the economy around when there are 4 million jobs that have been lost on the President's watch, when the Debt is higher, and the Stimulus did not produce the jobs the administration said it would."
Jarrett responded with "actually I disagree with everything you just said." Jarrett had a shocked look on her face as Gregory made the remarks. . . . (VIDEO)

Their marxist egotism has no bounds. Do they really think that they can continue to DENY the truth and American’s will buy it? I’ll bet the SOTU speech will make us all want to vomit!

Their marxist egotism has no bounds....and while the ‘right’ may not get a word in edgewise, the left, albeit for very different reasons, are eating their own!

“Jarrett had a shocked look on her face as Gregory made the remarks”

“When did Gregory’s testicles drop?”

I don’t think they dropped; I think they just slipped out of Bammy’s hands for a minute...they’ll be back in place as soon as he get’s “invited to the White House” like the director of the OMB did...

USA ‘only’ lost 85,000 more jobs in December 09.
So VJ is praising the wonders of Obummer on the economy.

Whoa! What were they putting in the Whitehouse coffee this morning! Another Newspeaker, just like Robert Gibbs. This really must be Opposite Day, and now we've got Val "Squarepants" Jarrett to go along with Robert "Squarepants" Gibbs.

Actually, yes.

Repeating a lie and having it eventually be believed is the Alinsky crowd's default play.

The people, after all, are not too bright. They need to be lead.

Many of the left can't conceive of this not working.

It's a what ever “is” is thing.

No Teachers, University Professors, Postal workers, Federal, State or Local government employees have lost their jobs.

That should count for something!

On the same show (try to catch the rerun or online)it is slightly comforting to see that McConnell “gets it”.He hit all the right points.On another note just saw an infomercial while flipping, Leeza Gibbons is still hot.

Sometimes it sounds as if the MSM is starting to turn on the Obamoids. He set a trap for her and she fell in it.

They are Wal-Mart employees. According to Wal-Mart haters on the extreme left and the extreme right, those aren’t even REAL jobs anyway.

Here's a screen capture of that poll. Let's just hope Obama follows his natural inclination to double-down on healthcare.

About freakin' time. David Gregory was in Bush's face all day every day.

Theoretically, broadcast journalism is a competitive business. What's the point in being a White House correspondent if all you're going to do is parrot DNC press releases?

Jake Tapper has been asking honest questions of the White House from the get-go, with no detriment to his career. It's about time the rest started to follow suit.

At some point, it's going to be cool to bash Obama. A year ago it was "racist" to do so. Now it's tolerable. But soon it will be fashionable. When that happens, Katie bar the door.

I really thought it was classic Gibbs when he said this morning on FNS that when people voted for Scott Brown they were really voting for Obama's policies.

In my mind I pictured him as a clown holding a sign reading, "Support Obama-Vote Republican."

Given the celebrity-tabloid culture in which we live...the 1st big name White House reporter that openly goes after them will become a megastar.

Book deal. Prime time face-time.

What's going on at MSNBC ?

Mika Brzezinski was doing some bad mouthing of Obama as well. Their ratings must really suck and the election of Scott Brown might have started them thinking - they can't compete with Fox going down the liberal path.

Or GE selling them is starting to have an effect....

You folks don’t get it!!! Gregory and his media dudes & gals wanted “just” a Democrat liberal to become the POTUS. What they have gotten is far from what even these leftie media types wanted. Obama and his ilk are communists with a sprinkle of socialism and large protions of facism thrown in. Jarrett thinks she is in pre-World War II Germany, or maybe Russia, or maybe China, where Herr Hitler and his fellow dictator minions uttered whatever he or they wanted even if what they were all saying was total lies, which it was!!! Obama, Jarrett and the entire Democrat Party are in at home company with the socialists, communists and facists of the world!!!! Believing otherwise makes you a complete fool!!!

There two ways to look at 'turning the economy around'.

In 0bama's case, yeah, he turned it around, the same scenario as 'rescuing defeat from the jaws of victory!'

Mrs Boomstick pointed out the following Freudian slip from the transcript...

MR. GREGORY: You can't say you've turned the economy around when there are four million jobs that have been lost on the president's watch.

MS. JARRETT: You didn't let...

MR. GREGORY: When the debt is higher and the stimulus did not produce the jobs that the administration said it would.

MS. JARRETT: Well, I actually disagree with everything you just said. Let's, let's take a look. We have pulled it back from the brink of disaster. That was our first and primary goal. The president took some bold steps that were not necessarily popular, but that did stabilize the financial system. This is a long haul, David, and we are not satisfied--having any American who wants to work unemployed is something that the parent--the president takes to heart each and every day. This isn't something that's going to be repaired in one year. We're going to have to push forward. But that doesn't mean we give up and that doesn't mean that jobs haven't been a top priority from day one.
