RUSH: Barack Hussein Kardashian, the Celebrity of the United States, went out for a press conference, impromptu on Friday. A State-Controlled Media reporter said, "What about the Republicans saying that you're blaming the Europeans for the failures of your own policies?"
OBAMA: The private sector is doing fine. Where we're seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government -- oftentimes cuts initiated by, you know, governors or mayors.
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I think that he meant to say exactly what he said. I don't see a problem here. The private sector, as far as he's concerned, is doing fine. If he thinks that the public sector is losing jobs, that's a problem. If there are fewer government workers, that's a major problem to Barack Obama. As far as he's concerned, the private sector's fine. And as far as he's concerned, the way he's been educated and taught, the private sector's always just gonna be there.
The private sector's a golden goose. Doesn't matter. If people lose their jobs in the private sector, it doesn't matter. There's always some rich people out there. The private sector's cool. The private sector's fine. Everything's okay. But people reacted and had a fit, and it forced Obama to go out and ostensibly "correct" himself. So later in the afternoon at the White House, after meeting with the president of the Philippines, he spoke with reporters after that meeting. He took a question. "Mr. President, Mitt Romney says you're out of touch for saying, 'The private sector is doing fine.' What's your response?"
OBAMA: Listen. Uhhh, it is absolutely clear that the economy is not doing fine. That's the reason I had the press conference. That's why I spent yesterday -- the day before yesterday, this past week, this past month, and this past year -- talking about how we can make the economy stronger. The economy's not doing fine.
RUSH: Now, did he really "walk back" his statement, "The private sector's doing fine"? He did not. I've seen all these reports that the president revised his private-sector-is-doing-fine comment. He didn't. He said, "The economy's not doing fine." The first thing he said was, "The private sector is doing fine." Then, during the ostensible correction, he says, "Listen. Uhhh, it's absolutely clear the economy's not doing fine." What about the private sector? He did not walk it back. The bottom line is, for somebody like Obama, the private sector's just there, folks.
Serially though, with nice clear thinking like its easy to see how he has a employment deficit and not be aware of it.
Matter of fact that’s just one deficiency.
Sounds almost as if Emperor Hiro Neato’s union teleprompter operator was on strike.
Wow, what a likeness
I'm not sure if AxleShaft is a National Socialist or and International Socialist like Zer0.
“The Private Sector is Doing Fine”.. Translation: Whites are suffering; Good!
Doing fine?????????????? Look at THESE charts!
“I think the Private Sector is doing fine.”
Translation: “I don’t think we’ve squeezed enough blood from the turnip yet.”
"the Private Sector is Doing Fine"
An innocent verbal gaffe, as the President himself has acknowledged. What was meant was “the private sector is doing fineS...” (my emphasis) “... that our Administration is imposing for the crimes of rule breaking.” Just as earlier the President meant “polished death camps...” “...due to the selfless efforts of hardworking prisoners.” Clear now?
Obama is a communist thug.
The man is a complete and utter idiot. The one question I cannot answer however is why the Mainstream Media is so invested in him?
I appreciate what you were trying to say, because I agree with a good portion of it. Where I disagree is his comments related to the private sector. It was a massive mistake to make even a short comment amidst the others, that sounded like he thinks the private sector is now healthy. That will make a lot of people very angry.
My thought was that nobody would have placed that sort of a comment on the teleprompter. If it had been thought out before hand, it wouldn’t have been included.
That’s all. I’m sure he meant to say it. It was terribly ill-advised.
As for your comments about him wanting to hire more public employees, no doubt you’re right.
true, it makes people mad. I was more angry about the rest of the arguement. But you are right. A lot of people will be shocked to hear that he is not even trying to get more private sector jobs.
Thanks Poinq. Hiring more government workers is not the answer to this. I agree. If anything it’s time to start slicing and dicing the government work force.
Police, Fire, and Teachers ARE NOT the only government workers by the way. Obama is as simplistic as a grade school child. He’s woefully ignorant.
