Skip to comments.White House Official: "We Know He Needs to Be Out There to Talk About the Economy Next Week"
Posted on 08/27/2010 7:48:03 AM PDT by Qbert
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.
"We Know He Needs to Be Out There Reading Off The Teleprompter Next Week"
(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!
What? He phoned it in this week. That wasn’t good enough? You ungrateful bastards! You just don’t know what’s good for you. Obama apparently does. Now, we should just shut up. NOT.
Most probably. Obama is certainly the worst President in my 65 years. By a bunch.
The only thing I want to hear out of his mouth is, “I resign.” Anything else is just noise. There is nothing he can say that will change the fundamental fact that he has ruined this country in just 18 months.
We havent yet figured out the way hes going to do that.
Might I suggest he just keep lying as he has been?
“What about the car in the ditch? I thought that was going to be good right on through election day.”
Yeah, me too- I think all he has to do is change it to, the “Republicans were eating a Dairy Queen Blizzard”, or “drinking a Big Gulp” instead of a Slurpee while they were driving the car, and he’s home free. ;-)
Shut up, go home and take your blue pill!
Barack Hussein Obama: “out-Cartering Carter since 2009.”
thanks for cracking me up! funny very funny! and I certainly need funny these days!
Even that might be getting risky (there is a remote but very real possibility Katie or Chris might go off script and ask a real question just to salvage a dying career).
Perhaps another visit to The View would make more sense...or The Ellen Show or one of the cooking shows (he could talk about the shrimp and lobster he had at the Vineyard).
We all do, that's for sure.
Have a great day.
They will keep us posted on the next vacation spot in the fall. Pretty leaves in New england and great ice cream joints.
“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.

You’ll see this after November.
The left will think they didn’t condescend enough,
and that’s why the people defied them.
Perhaps some unintentional truth there. If he thinks he can improve his popularity by talking about HIS Economy, then he is "out there."
What was it Obama promised earlier this year? Oh yeah....Putting jobs first. Gotcha.
“We Know He Needs to Be Out There to Talk About the Economy Next Week”
rather it should read-
“We Know He Needs to Be Out There to LIE About the Economy Next Week”
See my new (borrowed in part) tagline...
"Uh, hi, folks, uh, the economy..... Uh, we have the change, uh, we have been seeking. It's, uh, under the, uh, cushions in your sofa.
My plan, uh, is to, uh, have everyone, uh, recover that change, and, uh, spend it, uh, in their local economy.
Imagine with me if you will the, uh, economic impact of, uh, millions of Americans, uh, uh, buying a newspaper or, uh, an ice cream from their neighborhood convenience store. Ice cream--I mean, uh, we aren't calling this the, uh, summer of recovery for nothing.
Let me be clear....there will be some of our Republican friends, uh across the isle that will, uh, tell you that this isn't gonna work. But they just hate you, uh and they hate ice cream and uh Muslim convenience store owners too.
Now, while I'm off, uh, vacationing, I want everyone to do their part to, uh, make the uh, summer of recovery a big success. Yes We Can - now go check those cushions, and I recommend the chocolate!
Does this mean I can go talk to the IRS about paying my taxes? Talk is BS. We need tax cuts and our freedom back!
“I will not rest* until everyone who wants a job has one.”
*well, except for the umpteen vacations I’m going to take and all the rounds of golf I’m going to play
Obama...Putting Ground Zero Mosques before Jobs.
Geez, how heartless can you be?
At least give the choice between the red pill and the blue pill!
“Perhaps another visit to The View would make more sense...or The Ellen Show or one of the cooking shows (he could talk about the shrimp and lobster he had at the Vineyard).”
I was thinking maybe he could go on Jersey Shore. But then Snookie would probably ask him questions about why we need a tanning tax in a health care law, and he would be befuddled.
As George Stepalloverus once said, while still a part of the Klintoon Administration, “To a Democrat, saying something about a problem is the same as doing something about a problem.”.............
Did anyone else notice the attempt to insinuate that the Imam's not been in our faces for two years now?
Somebody better tell the Obama Gang that killing us old farts off with a “blue” pill will mean they will need a chain saw to get the lid on the coffin closed! :-)
