White House Official: "We Know He Needs to Be Out There to Talk About the Economy Next Week"
ABC News ^ | 8/27/2010 | Jake Tapper

Posted on 08/27/2010 7:48:03 AM PDT by Qbert

President Obama’s golf-filled vacation in Martha’s Vineyard neared its close on Friday with more bad news on the economic front, as the Commerce Department’s 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 Martha’s 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 haven’t yet figured out the way he’s going to do that.”

.....“We haven’t yet figured out the way he’s going to do that.”......

Translation..... “We are still drafting up the lie”

The conference call was held to list the main points of the lie and the flowery sugar drivel is being crafted around them to make them palatable.

Here’s how it will be......

The last speech of Ceausescu

Great...you forgot, “Well, you know...” and “”let me explain” (meaning, “You’re so stupid, let me spell it out for you.”)

The public may be stupid, but it’s not that stupid. It has noticed that Imam Obamah is out playing golf on his 5th vacation while the rest of try to find a job to pay for Imam Obamah’s taxes that will be used to give money to people who hate you and me and vote democrat.

Thank God! I was worried that Obama would stay hidden until after the election, and the Dems might regain some of the support they lost under the Obama Regime and Pelosi’s tactics.

Charlie Crist wants a job. That is why he visited Big O in Martha’s Vineyard. He will trade for a job by dropping out of the FL senate race and throwing his support to Meek. (Still won’t help Meek.)

“We haven’t yet figured out the way he’s going to do that.”

That covers everything he said he would do.Sometimes socialism gets a No Sale sign.

I wouldn’t be surprised if that was what it was about.

The Republicans better hope so every time he appears his approval ratings go down a point - but don't tell the White House also Joe Biden is doing such agreat job already.

That’s my biggest fear. I will have worked my entire life and when I hit 65, there will be no more money for the blue pill.

ROTFLMAO



Blame Bush, castigate the Republicans who are the minority Party, create more debt, and scold the rich. Who are these shysters trying to kid with "We haven't yet figured out..."
