WH on disastrous jobs report: Problems in the labor market won’t be solved “overnight,” you know
Hot Air ^ | JUNE 1, 2012 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 06/01/2012 1:30:14 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Anyone want to try defining “overnight” for me, just so that we have a rule of thumb going forward? On Inauguration Day, I would have accepted “2009″ or even “his first two years in office” as plausible answers. Instead, five months out from election day, somehow dawn still has yet to break. His braintrust is now actually on the cusp of arguing, in all seriousness, that it’s unfair to judge him on what’s happened in the jobs market over the course of his entire first term.

What do you do when America’s just taken an economic gut punch, with a vicious European uppercut soon to follow? You hold six fundraisers, naturally:

With Republicans steamrollering ahead with a group of well-fed Super Pacs and an increasingly successful money effort by Mitt Romney, President Obama Friday will attend six fundraisers, a possible sign of budding desperation for a campaign that is lagging far behind its initial fundraising expectations.

Apparently the "billion dollar" campaign fund Obama was going to ride into a second term is turning into a pumpkin as midnight nears.

Let’s see ... the economy Obama “received” was the fault of the last President and not the Pelosi / Reed Congress but the lack of recovery is the fault of the Boehner House and not Reid nor the current President. Is that about right?

OK then, shall we give the incompetent one 4 more years so he can prove to us that he can solve the unemployment problem? Only a fool would say yes.

How much do I need to donate to the Obama campaign to get a $524 Million dollar taxpayer-backed loan for my Thingamajig factory?

I even know a large plant that would be perfect for production, but I’d have to take down the “SOLYNDRA” sign, forst.

Romney: When Romney was governor of Massachusetts, what was the unemployment rate?

Where was Massachusetts' unemployment rate listed among the states: Was it near the top or near the bottom? Thanks.

NOTE: I don't live in Massachusetts, and I don't know much about the state and its unemployment history.

Bullsh!t! That is not what the kenyan fagot promised in the speech linked below. Go watch the fag promise in 2008 to heal everything and make the lame walk and the blind see. Play this for every rat that tries to excuse obama and his guilt in America's destruction.

Obama is pleading for more time. He does not want to be fired. He wants 4 more years to see if his plan works.
What is his plan?

As usual, the Dems are counting on voter’s short memory, or those that are too young to remember Reagan (and you know the “news” media won’t say anything about his record!). By the time of Reagan’s re-election, the country was booming, even hard hit areas. I never expected to Zero to come close to righting the economy.

Next great ad for Romney?

Clips of Zero (or one of his recognizable spokes-holes), in chronological order notated by calendar date, saying things like, “laser focus on jobs”, “these things take time”, “can’t be solved overnight”, “no greater focus than jobs”, “takes time”, “I need more time”.

Then a simple graphic, “3 years, and nothing accomplished”. The only thing he’s managed to ‘grow’ is the debt. 4 more years?? How about 4 more months!!

Biden’s three-letter word: ‘J-O-B-S”.

He and his buddy have done zero since January 20, 2009.

Almost three and one-half years.

And they want four more years.

Of golf. And vacations.

Overnight means the day after Democrats [or Republicans] restore all the manufacturing that unbalanced trade deals exported to the rest of the world. There will be no job recovery until the products you buy say 'Made in USA'.

Those who want to rely on green jobs or tax-cuts are just election recycled bull crap.

Hey - I really do not appreciate your use of the term "Kenyan fagot" in this context.

We're talking about a Kenyan faggot here, and you're being unfair to all the Kenyan fagots in the world.

Next time get it right, okay? :)

“I will be held accountable,” Obama said. “I’ve got four years and … A year form now, I think people are going to see that we’re starting to make some progress, but there’s still going to be some pain out there … If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

Socialism, centrally planned economies = EPIC FAIL

Always has, always will. Libs think the only reason Cuba, USSR, NY, CA failed is that Lenin, Stalin and Castro didn’t go to an Ivy League school.

Everything leftists do violates the law of human nature. That’s why they always fail.

Dear Democrats,

The only way government can solve the unemployment problem is to get the hell out of the way. That means less regulation, a much smaller bureaucracy, and fewer taxes: all ideas you so-called progressives fear. The American middle class you elitist snobs loathe are more then capable of generating jobs. We do not want your help nor do we need it.

Leave us Alone!

Reagan inherited far worse.

Easiest way to stop libs dead in their tracks on their blame Bush idiocy; "what laws did Bush pass that created the sub-prime bubble? Answer. None. Sub-prime started in 1995 and was up to $300 billion BEFORE Bush took office."
