Skip to comments.White House Official: "We Know He Needs to Be Out There to Talk About the Economy Next Week"

President Obamas golf-filled vacation in Marthas Vineyard neared its close on Friday with more bad news on the economic front, as the Commerce Departments Bureau of Economic Analysts revised downward 2nd quarter economic growth of the real gross domestic product, indicating the output of goods and services produced by labor and property in the US grew by an anemic 1.6%, rather than the original estimate of 2.4%.
The announcement came the same week as staggeringly bad news on the housing front with plummeting home sales and reports that the four-week moving average of weekly jobless claims is at its highest level since last November. The bad news renewed fears of a double-dip recession.
President Obama was largely invisible to the public, taking in 10 days of R&R in the posh Chilmark section of Marthas Vineyard. When he re-emerges to the public on Sunday, he will be kicking off a series of high profile events that have little to do with the issue foremost on Americans minds: jobs. On Sunday the president will travel to New Orleans to commemorate the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. On Tuesday he will deliver only his second Oval Office address, discussing the withdrawal of US combat troops from Iraq. On Wednesday and Thursday, he and his administration will focus on kick-starting peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians.
We know he needs to be out there to talk about the economy next week, a White House official told ABC News. We havent yet figured out the way hes going to do that.

Imam Obamah, Worst President Ever !
“We havent yet figured out the way hes going to do that.
This is a CORKER! LOL.
Who said he hasn’t been doing things while on his sixth vacation. Behind the scenes, his Dept. of Homeland Security is granting amnesty to thousands of illegal aliens so they can vote Democrat in November. That’s how BO plans to keep the Dems in power.
Imagine the Bush White House saying stuff in this way, especially regarding THE major crisis in America.
This current crew are children.
Well, it’s not like took him 51 days to respond to the Gulf oil spill or nuth’n.
“The Economy”? What economy? His SOCIALIST economy which is our dying capitalist economy?
Is it 2012 yet?
What about the car in the ditch? I thought that was going to be good right on through election day.
Is this for real? IOW, we haven't figured out yet how to spin all this bad news...?
If they can't figure how to "talk about the economy" then they have no chance in hell of being able to fix the situation. None whatsoever.
No, but I can see it from my backyard.
I think people have heard quite enough of his lies.
No thanks, Obozo, shaddup and resign.
Somebody has got to be making this up......
Let me guess - wearing a "regular guy" polo, in front of gangs of union stooges in specifically-engineered gender/race proportions, reading platitudes and lies off a teleprompter.
Then reciting answers to some Administration-written questions dutifully asked by fawning "journalists" like Katie Couric or Chris Matthews.
What Americans care most about is a mosque at Ground Zero. They don’t care about jobs.....
Bread and Circuses.

(preferably not near a golf course)
It’s not too difficult for him to talk about the economy. He will blame the “Bush failed economic policy” (although no one can define that term), blame the Republicans in congress, blame Wall Street, and Glen Beck.
“We know he needs to be out there to talk about the economy next week, a White House official told ABC News. We havent yet figured out the way hes going to do that.”
Translation: How do we spin this one?
CWII starts the very next day!
