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.

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! :-)
.....We havent yet figured out the way hes 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.
"Mind if I play through? Pass the lobster please..."
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 havent yet figured out the way hes going to do that.
That covers everything he said he would do.Sometimes socialism gets a No Sale sign.
he is cornered. I do wonder about that, and how exactly he will lash out. Something is coming.
You want me to go blind, too? :-)
I wouldn’t be surprised if that was what it was about.
