Obama says he beat 'vicious' economic downturn
AFP on Yahoo ^ | 7/9/10 | Stephen Collinson

Posted on 07/09/2010 10:41:49 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AFP) – US President Barack Obama said Friday his policies had pulled America out of the most vicious economic dive since the 1930s, setting battle lines for mid-term elections in November.

Obama put the Republicans on notice he will vigorously defend his record, despite the fact many Americans do not yet feel the recovery he is touting, while economic data hints that the rebound may be slowing.

"Our first mission was to break the momentum of the deepest and most vicious recession since the Great Depression," Obama said in the gambling hub of Las Vegas, wrapping up a two-day campaign-style trip.

"We had to stop the freefall and get the economy and jobs growing again."

Obama used his appearance at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to call on Congress to invest five billion dollars more in tax credits for green energy manufacturing firms, part of his plan for an alternative energy revolution.

After a brutal year featuring prolonged high unemployment and bitter political battles, Democrats had hoped to be reaping the benefits by now of Obama's rescue policies.

But while the economy is posting solid growth and creating jobs again, the party has seen negligible political gains, with the jobless rate still at 9.5 percent, and confidence in the rebound ebbing.

If the economy dictates the course of elections, as usual, Obama and the Democrats could be in for trouble come November when all of the House of Representatives is up for grabs, along with a third of the Senate.

Sure, he beat it. There's no recession for him, or for all his public-sector union sponsors, either.

Let me summarize for you Obama’s and the Democrat political playbook.

Start with the premise that many Americans are ignorant fools, like the near quarter who don’t know from whom we won our independence,.....and then just lie.

He has. He’s making boatloads of money and will for decades to come unless there really is such a thing as justice & he spends his post presidential life in prison.

The rest of us, however, have not been spared. But since when is that BHO’s concern?

Economic Freefalls without government economic intervention result in bounces as lower costs provide a natural stimulus. Freefalls with governments running up huge debts to create expensive wasteful political oriented government jobs just keep the country in a suspended state of recession while creating inflation in some areas while others are deflating, a huge squeeze play on employers.

It was never explained to me why wasting lots of money on government directed consumption and threatening private sector job creators with the bill (only if they take risks and if they are successful) will encourage private sector job growth. How about raising the minimum wage right at the time of peak job loss? Worse yet states like Maryland actually raise the unemployment insurance payroll tax with increasing unemployment promoting more layoffs punishing new hiring. How could this ever work? It reminds me of ethanol.
