Obama: 'This Will Be a Year of Action' on Economy
Breitbart ^ | 12 Jan 2014 | Wynton Hall

Posted on 01/12/2014 5:02:05 PM PST by Hoodat

Echoing past economic promises of “green shoots,” “five million green collar jobs,” and “recovery summer,” President Barack Obama said during his Saturday weekly address that 2014 will be a “year of action” on the economy.

“This will be a year of action. I’ll keep doing everything I can to create new jobs and new opportunities for American families – with Congress, on my own, and with everyone willing to play their part,” said Obama.

Obama’s latest economic pivot comes on the heels of a dismal Friday jobs report that shows the U.S. labor force participation rate has contracted to its lowest rate in 36 years.

Still, the president declared the Obama economy is booming. “Across our broader economy, there are signs of progress. Our manufacturing and housing sectors are rebounding. Our energy, technology, and auto sectors are booming. Thanks in part to the reforms in the Affordable Care Act, health care costs now eat up less of our economy,” he said.

On Friday, the government announced that a record 91.8 million Americans are no longer in the labor force.

Seems like we've heard this before:

NOVEMBER 2, 2009 – "We will not rest until we are succeeding in generating the jobs that this economy needs"

NOVEMBER 23, 2009 – "I will not rest until business are investing again, and businesses are hiring again"

JANUARY 28, 2010 - "We will not rest until we build an economy that's ready for America's future"

MARCH 5 2010 – "I’m not gonna rest & my administration is not gonna rest in our efforts to help people who are looking to find a job"

JULY 8, 2010 – "My administration will not rest until every American who is able and ready and willing to work can find a job"

So far the only shovel-ready job Obama has created is Jay Carney’s.

This guy is the living, walking, talking, breathing punchline to the old joke about the woman who married three guys and never consummated any of the marriages. He never does it. He just sits on the edge of the bed, talking about how great it’d gonna be.

Every time this guy says he is going to concentrate on the economy, it just gets worse. As a matter of fact, every thing he concentrates on gets worse.

Is there some actual measure he tortured till it said this, or did he just make it up out of whole cloth?

In other words, he'll take over the rest of our economy - the end of free enterprise, capitalism, and individual Freedom in the U.S.A.

I thought he already said that his primary focus for the remainder of this term was “fixing” the “problem” of unequal wealth distribution. I don’t see his Marxist goals as being consistent with healing a private sector based economy. (He doesn’t either.)

His war on prosperity continues.

If he cared, he and his entire cabinet would resign.

John Boehner would be President, and though he wouldn’t be great, he’d be better than the Clown.

"This will be a year of action. I’ll keep doing everything I can to create new jobs and new opportunities for American families – with Congress, on my own, and with everyone willing to play their part," said Obama.

And all the FReepers (me included) say, "What the hell is this lawless dictator going to do to me now?"

Because when he says "action", you better BOHICA. This guy does NOTHING without the heavy hand of government behind him.
