President Barack Obama told thousands of cheering union members and activists gathered at Cincinnati's Coney Island park Monday that his economic recovery plan is working.

"We're on the road to recovery, Ohio, don't let anybody tell you otherwise," said Obama, who took the stage as the sky cleared following a morning that threatened rain.

OBAMAVILLE

Gett’n a head fake,
watchin’ msn’s take;
All of their pundits oozing foul oil.
Clean’n my six gun on my front porch swing.
Felling my blood—
It’s beginnin’ to boil.

Wasted away again in Obamaville,
Searchin’ for a job so I can earn my salt.
Some people claim that Bush is to blame,
But I know it’s Obama’s fault.

There’s no rhyme or reason,
They are all commitin’ treason
With nothing to show but a brand new tax or two.
But they are real beauties,
Despotic duties,
how they got passed I haven’t a clue.

Wasted away again in Obamaville,
Searchin’ for a job so I can earn my salt.
Some people claim that it’s Bush we should blame,
Now I think,— hell with them it’s Obama’s fault.

I blew out my flip flop,
Stepped on a pop top;
Cut my heel, but I just cruise on back home.
Because no medical care will the doctors render
They say there’s little service I can tender
And there’s no need for me to hang on.

Wasted away again in Obamaville
Searchin’ for a job so I can earn my salt.
Some people claim that Bush is to blame,
But I know, it’s my own damn fault.
Yes, and some people claim that Bush is to blame,
And I know because of my vote it’s my own damn fault

""Across America, we've saved the jobs of tens of thousands of state and local workers, including teachers and first responders right here in Ohio," Obama said. "Don't take my word for it ask folks right here in Ohio."

This has to be joke. It just has be. Does Obama's clown show administration have any idea how it's coming across to the citizens of the United States? Apparently not.

I caught part of his talk today....did anyone else get the sense Obama was angry?

He did not look happy......menacing I would call it.

We're not going to let up ... not until all Americans have their shot at the American dream.

A country where we can drill for our own oil, choose our own doctor, drive and eat whatever we want without running afoul of some government regulation or ambulance-chasing lawyer?

This country is losing jobs by the truckload. So, what does this moron do? He tells the mob about the jobs he is "saving." ROTFL! You have to have just fallen off of the cabbage truck to believe that horse dung. Why are union workers so "slow?" How do you measure the number of jobs you are "saving?"

Just say NO to drugs.

""We're on the road to recovery, Ohio, don't let anybody tell you otherwise," said Obama"

We've all heard this over and over, but he doesn't walk his talk, and the facts and figures don't follow his rhetoric either.

This "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" statement speaks volumns about zero...he has to urge everyone to ignore everyone else and only believe him.

If he had anything genuine, and worthwhile to offer, he'd be saying something like, "...go ahead, look it up, research it, ask your friends..."

You can only pile bull$hi+ so high before it begins to fall...his pile is teetering badly.

That was one of the most bizarre “speeches’ I’be ever heard..it was like he is still on the campaign trail. But all the screaming and finger pointing.

Obama is an angry little boy, right now.

We're on our way to recovery....EXCEPT....we're trillions more in debt, we own an auto company that will eventually fail....we sacked thousands of good used cars which would provide income for repair shops and tax money to the states on the next sale.

Your 401k's have been ransacked.

You paid the highest fuel prices ever in 2008 and we did nothing...and still insist on not drilling for gas or oilo....or using coal to help out america...in utilizing its' assets AND creating jobs.

We BURN our forests in lieu of utilizing this asset for growth and manufacturing.

Waste....We've made ourselves a WASTELAND...in the sense that letting things "BE" is the way to go!! Dumb....just plain dumb!!!

I have to constantly remind people that when Democrats talk about how ‘we’ are doing in any particular capacity, economic, employment, etc ... they are talking about the government.

I watched the whole speech (working a crossword and it was on in the background on Fox).

He is pissed, no doubt. He lied through his teeth from the beginning. He started by saying they passed the stimulus with no earmarks, lowered taxes on 95% of Americans, blah, blah, blah.

The man cannot lead this country: he only knows how to campaign. Worst president of all time and that takes a lot of work.

He doesn’t want to represent America but only his supporters. Oh well. 2010 will not be pretty at this rate.

“Top AFL-CIO leaders and politicians were taking part in the Labor Day annual picnic, and organizers said union locals handed out some 10,000 tickets for access to the area where the president was to speak.”

If that was the primary audience he was addressing, then they know exactly how he is coming across...he is all union all the time. In the union’s eyes, he has been very successful. He will do all he can to save their jobs and benefits at the expense of those employees who are capable of making in the free-market society. Union thinking is a mental disease on par (if not greater) than liberalism.

Just getting his game face on for the big spitch to congress on Wednesday. He's been bitchslapped by Congressional 'rat leaders since he came into office, and his handlers have spent his weird off-and-on vacation coaching and prepping him to get some gonads. No more Mr. Nice Guy.

Probably his teleprompter will get a shiver up its leg before they're done.

I caught a bit of it. Two things came to mind:

1. His tone was typical full-on “organizing” mode. I could picture him giving this same speech in front of fifteen or twenty laid-off steel workers in south Chicago.

2. The Bee Gees “J-j-jive Talkin’”.

“It’s just you jive talkin’
you’re telling me lies, yeah,
Jive talkin’
you wear a disguise,
Jive talkin’,
so misunderstood,
Jive talkin’
You’re really no good.

snip

Jive talkin’
you’re tellin’ me lies, yeah
Your lovin’
still gets in my eyes
Nobody’ believe what you say,
It’s just your Jive talkin’
that gets in the way

Love talkin’ is all very fine, yeah
Jive talkin’ just isn’t a crime,
And if there’s somebody you’ll love till you die,
Then all that jive talking’
Just gets in your eye.”

In other words, the crowds gathering for The 0man are still so infatuated with his “present”, are still “blinded by the light”. Fortunately, their numbers are dwindling.

Not sure where B.O. is getting is information about Ohio but somebody is cooking the books. One of our relatives works for a pharmaceutical company. Ten days ago they eliminated 75% of their sales force in Ohio. The cuts were made on a national basis as well, but Ohio had the greatest loss.

I've suspected that the real unemployment figure nationwide is much higher than reported by our "honest" government.

Surte:

The decline in power usage over the past year is a rarity and also an indication of how badly the recession has jolted the economy and changed the way Americans spend.

The shift began last year, when power consumption fell 1.6 percent. Government forecasters see consumption falling another 2.7 percent this year. That would mark the first time since 1949 that the nation has seen energy demand fall in consecutive years.

I can’t really say he is wrong, if you were on the road that goes from Nowheresvile to Disneyland but you were headed the wrong way you would still be on the road to Disneyland, wouldn’t you? We are headed in the wrong direction, that much I am sure of, the situation worsens with each passing day but Obama tells us everything is great.

Old airline joke, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain apeaking, thank you for flying Obama airlines, I have good news and bad news, the bad news is we have been flying in the wrong direction, the good news is we are making great time.
