Via Fox Nation. See now why the DNC has to resort to running dumb ads like this? The alternative is to let this guy go out on the stump and explain America’s crippling unemployment in his own words. Here’s where that strategy gets you.

... boy I don’t know, I remember 1979... that’s a pretty low bar to limbo under even for this current third rate POTUS.

The ATM remark tells me Obama is only barely interested in a second term! Who would make such a colossally stupid remark who was prepared to be president, or even interested? A delusional answer fit for a stack of firewood. He really doesn’t seem to give a large damn any more.

I DON’T GET INSIDE A BANK MORE THAN ONCE A YEAR, IF THAT!

I GET MONEY AND MAKE ALL DEPOSITS BY ATM AND ALL OTHER BUSINESS, WIRE TRANSFERS, MOVING MONEY WITHIN SAME BANK, ETC..OVER THE INTERNET.

Don’t forget that those ATMs are taking jobs too ...

If you get rid of ATMs, tell that to the father [on the last day of vacation in Ocean City, MD - a Sunday] who runs outta cash and can't buy his kidz T-shirts from a sidewalk vendor ...

BTW - tell that to the sidewalk vendor who only accepts cash ...

We are automating some work because the job is too boring for any normal human being to tolerate longer then a few weeks or months. I can take this work overseas and pay six Orientals 5 to 10 dollars a day or we can teach two Americans how to run the automation for 40,000 a year each, plus profit sharing.

Keep Americans working with quality jobs and working conditions so they can afford those ATM fees.

Obama is an over educated Socialist Idiot with Zero common sense.

Think of all the extra people we would have on construction sites if they dug the foundation holes by hand, hand-mixed the concrete, manually cut the lumber with handsaws, and used hammers to drive nails. Why, unemployment would disappear overnight.

And these effin’ idiots accuse Republicans of wanting to go “back to the failed policies of the past”!

To save their longshoreman jobs, the unions prevented the Port of San Francisco from modernizing the equipment to unload container ships. So all the wharfs shut down and moved to Oakland where they installed the latest and much more efficient equipment. The stupidity of unions knows no bounds.

That is absolutely Orwellian. In his masterpiece 1984 Orwell described the heralding of collapsing standards like the advancement of straight razors over electric razors because they contributed more to society.

Obama doesn't deprive himself of the latest technology for sure!

Obama's new BlackBerry: The NSA's secure PDA?

Obama adds iPad to Blackberry, time to short RIMM?

Multnomah County: a reliable ATM for Obama

Snip: Multnomah County residents gave 89.8 percent of their presidential contributions to Democrat Barack Obama (which is even higher than the Democrats' 57.2 percent share of the electorate in the county).

Obama: ATM In Chief?

Democrats want to tax your ATM withdrawals

Unless we are facing imminent threat from a foreign aggressor, Americans will vote in national elections on the basis of the state of the economy. Inflation is a major factor in this, but the most important issue is jobs. Unemployment is now chronically high.

We all now know that Obama is a socialist and his intent is to expand government at the expense of private enterprise. We also know that government never generates capital. It only consumes wealth; never creates it. We also know that the single greatest aspect of the economy affecting how people vote is employment. If I have have had my job eliminated, my hours cut back, have been furloughed from my job, I am more likely to vote against the incumbents.

Small and mid-sized businesses know that higher corporate taxes and government regulation, which Obama loves, destroys our free market system of prosperity. Small and mid-sized business owners know that the Obama administration must be defeated in 2012. Their contributing to the elections of those who run against Obama is not enough, however.

The best way for business to insure the defeat of Obama is for them to begin now to cut back their employment rolls even more - even if it means temporarily sacrificing their companies’ profitability. Putting people out of work temporarily in order to insure Obama’s defeat in 2012 will mean a healthier business climate in the years to come. Once we get government off the backs of business and the working middle class of this country, we will be on better footing to grow our economy once again.

It might sound like a draconian measure to lay people off in order to insure Obama’s defeat, but let’s face it Obama is out to destory our country and we are in dire straits. What’s needed, as in time of war, are drastic measures.

In the past, when our country was under a threat from external forces, men (and now women) have been called upon to leave their normal means of employment to join the armed forces to insure the security of our nation for our families and posterity.

Now our country is under a different kind of threat - a threat from within - a threat from our own government which has hijacked our Constitution and has concentrated power in the hands of a few elitists. The threat is no less real than when our enemies have been external to us.
So the call for all of us to make sacrifices in a time of war is no extreme measure but is patriotic. And just as in a time of war when families, communities, friends and churches pull together to get through the crisis, so this should be the same response to those who find themselves out of work. If we all pull together, in the end our collective security will be insured and that of our children as well. Obama must not be re-elected for the good of all.

He’s right. If it weren’t for carbon paper we would still employ scribes. Think of the jobs lost to the cotton gin. The automobile killed the buggy whip industry.

Remember back in 1992, when the MSM ridiculed Bush about being interested in supermarket laser scanners, which had been introduced in the late 1970's?

Now Obama is citing ATMs, a technology from the early 70's, as an excuse for his sorry record.

Some engineer was giving a US Congressman a tour of the Panama Canal construction site.
They stopped before a massive steam shovel scooping up tons of dirt at a lick and the politician tisk tisked:
“Look at that thing—it is taking away the jobs of hundreds of men with shovels!”
The engineer didn't miss a beat and with his sweetest sarcasm responded:
“I don't feel sorry for them a bit—the ones I pity are the thousands of unemployed men with teaspoons because of that contraption.”
