Obama pledges relentless fight on economy
Associated Press ^ | August 4, 2010

Posted on 08/04/2010 8:55:36 AM PDT by reaganaut1

President Barack Obama is pledging a relentless fight to rebuild the economy as millions of families struggle.

Obama is telling union officials in Washington, "We are not giving up, and we are not giving in."

The president spoke in personal terms Wednesday about the plight of people who have not been able to find work in the deep, enduring recession. He spoke of spouses who must have uncomfortable conversations about not being able to afford their homes any more or not being able to save money for college funds.

The president spoke to the AFL-CIO Executive Council.

He has indeed been "relentless" in his fight against the economy, but I guess the A.P. writer meant something else.

My thoughts, too. He hate a free market economy, and will do whatever it takes to sink it.

He spoke of spouses who must have uncomfortable conversations about not being able to afford their homes any more or not being able to save money for college funds.

Meanwhile, the spouse of our POS "President" is paying for 60 rooms, on taxpayer dollars, in Spain. Imagine the "spouses" in the Gulf States (or even Hawaii) and the conversations they could be having with that taxpayer money spent in their American town. It may even help send an American child to school!

Well your idiotic policies are forcing many fine Americans to throw up their hands in despair and others are simply sitting on them while they wait for another one of your many shoes to drop.

Please go back to Kenya.

Many - if not all - unions have long outlived their reason for existence. Especially public sector unions. They may not be the root cause of the problem but they are only one or two branches removed.

Maybe he should have started this “relentless fight” by keeping Michelle at home....what must the taxpayers of America been shaken down to provide her security and the security of her entourage in that expensive resort....30 rooms, AF2...., guards, automobiles etc. Truly these people have no class....learning at the expense of the American people...what a hypocritical and tasteless thing to do Michelle for going to Spain and Obama for lying once again to a nation he cares so little about.

The president spoke in personal terms Wednesday about the plight of people...

"Feeling their pain" works much better when people aren't actually in pain. It worked great for Clinton, but he wasn't trying to put American business out of business.

With 10% unemployment, telling people you feel their pain — in between vacations and rounds of golf — kinda sorta misses the mark.

Like you said, he has been relentlessly fighting the economy since he took office.

Unfortunately, the economy and Americans are losing this battle and the referee is ready to declare a TKO.

The end result is everyday, hard working citizens face down on the mat as they drown in their own blood, sweat, and tears.

Obama will take more money from the private sector so Democrats can continue spending, and everyone will have less job opportunities, but he will swear that’s going to fix the economy. Any takers?

I just don’t get the Union love for the Democrat Party. It was a Democrat President who signed NAFTA. It was a Democrat President who granted Most Favored Nation trade status to the Peoples’ Republic of China. It was a Democrat President who allowed China to join the WTO. And the current Democrat President is encouraging more illegals to enter the country, thus depressing wages for everyone including Union workers. It makes no sense.

Don’t forget the democrat anti-fossil fuel stance which would do away with coal, oil and gas mining...all union positions.

How the unions leadership support democrats is easy to understand. Unions leaders get a ton of gimmes from democrat pols. How the union rank and file support them when it will eventually cost them their jobs and livelyhoods makes no sense at all.

Remember when President "Moron" Ford's best idea for fighting inflation was to wear those "WIN!" buttons? You know, "Whip Inflation Now!". I bet he came up with that idea all by himself, what do you think?

At any rate, I've got an idea for Prez Obummer that I'm willing to give him for free, namely the "WUN!" button. You know, "Whip Unemployment Now!". What do you think?
