The story will be:

1). It is all due to Europe. I can’t be held responsible for Europe.
2) if I wasn’t in charge it would be much worse.
3) Romney will send the remaining jobs to China and India.

The whole point of ObamaCare was to make unionized manufacturing competitive with non-union. It succeeded. Now both will die.

Smell that?

It’s the smell of the recession hitting and there is no one to blame it on but Obama. If he focused on the economy and not healthcare maybe we wouldn’t be in this situation.

But we are....

Snifffffff...

Worldwide demand is dropping.

Why the spike to $92 on Friday? I’m glad to see it tank, but that was a weird spike.

Don't forget:

4) Bush's fault!

I watches a political activist on O’Reilly last week tell Laura Ingram exactly that. Laura jokingly mentioned “I suppose is all Bush's fault.” and this silly twit said she would openly and enthusiastically make just a statement because it was true.

Obama never has and never will take responsibility for ANYTHING and the media is more then happy to go along with whatever lame excuse he comes up with.

It should not come as any big surprise to anyone... there’s a maxim of American politics that I’ve known since I was a little kid - people will vote their pocketbooks except in time of war.

Which scares the sh*t outta me. If the narcicisst in chief feels he can't win unless there is a war, the SOB will probably start one.

Of course it is from his perspective. He wants manufacturing to plunge.

Whoever coined that phrase could never have imagined that a time would come when nearly half of Americans were dependent on government. If they vote their pocketbooks, its the end of everything as we know it.

I know, I thought of that just as I was posting. If that maxim holds true, we’re all dead meat. Nevertheless, I think it’s apples and oranges. If people vote based on the economy, and I think they will, he’s going to get crucified.

“If he focused on the economy and not healthcare maybe we wouldn’t be in this situation.”

The best thing Obama could do for the economy and health care would be for him to focus on the disappearing glaciers in the Himalayas.

It also causes greed and inequality, not to mention discrimination against minorities and women.

Heinous Anus wants to create in the US, the hellhole that is the country formerly known as Rhodesia. His malevolence is tempered by his incompetence. His melanometric manias blind him to the point he is innumerate. The demographics in America are still at least inverse to the former Rhodesia. A land once prosperous and a food exporter now lays in ruins due to the Afrofascist monster,Robert Mugabe..

The talking points will go out this morning to Beckel and Co. and will only count
the one sector that pay has risen in but not noted. Government worker unions.
But Gov jobs will not be mentioned and avoided during any discussion.
