Politics: The president jokes about unemployment and says ATM machines kill jobs. Mean-while, one of his top aides says 2012 voters should avoid "affixing blame." Sounds to us like someone who knows he's in trouble.
The Republican National Committee could not have scripted a more damning sound bite. President Obama on Monday attended his administration's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness at an enviro-friendly lighting firm in North Carolina. Considering the dismal state of the economy, it should have been a subdued event.
But when it was explained to the president that the federal permit process for construction and infrastructure projects can cause delays ranging from "months to years," and "in many cases even cause projects to be abandoned," a gaffe ensued.
It was remarked to the president, "I'm sure that when you implemented the Recovery Act, your staff briefed you on many of these challenges." A smiling Obama responded, "shovel-ready was not as . .. uh ... shovel-ready as we expected."
Even the staging couldn't have been more hurtful. Big signs reading "Jobs Council" loomed above him and adorned the desk at which he sat. After the president's quip, members of his "Jobs Council," led by his friend, General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt, laughed heartily.
During the event, the president asked, "How do we deal with making sure our regulations make sense, so that we start eliminating ones that don't work, aren't making consumers better off or aren't improving our quality of life?"

You’re unemployed, upside down on your mortgage and have lots of debt.....Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha (according to nobama and his crony capitalists)!
Zero only takes credit. Not blame.
Glad you asked! GET RID OF EPA!
..........making sure our regulations make sense, so that we start eliminating ones that dont work........
So that we start, START???
Start now, after he has crippled, divided and raped our country?
Start now, THREE years into his FAILED term???
The ONLY thing Obama needs to start, is PACKING.
America's good days are ahead as it 'all up' from here. As we approach the election, look for the markets to re-bound and jobs to reappear in anticipation of O'JiveTurkey's departure.
If we can avoid a crisis of major proportion (think OJ trial on steroids) the people are poised to deliver us from evil. Thanks in advance.
Are you down with OTP?
Very nice. Some other excellent vids on that YT channel also.
Yup, the stock market will skyrocket if it looks like odungbeetle is going to lose, and when he does lose, we will see an economic recovery like we have never seen before. Even liberals will be relieved, at least those who have investments anyway.
I love it.
This is a winner
I thought you would
In that case he would just be someone who we disagreed with, but who loved the US and wanted to do a good job. Instead, he has been arrogant, and uncompromisingly leftist, with an agenda.
And if he loses to someone like Sarah who will take no prisoners, the recovery coming from this new-bottom will seem even more substantial. YeeHaw, baby!
