Posted on 03/04/2016 4:13:43 PM PST by Nachum
President Barack Obama responded to reports of slow job growth Friday by blaming Republicans who have opposed parts of his economic agenda.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report found the economy added 242,000 new jobs in February. The latest number highlights a long-running trend of slow, yet positive, economic growth. Obama credits the growth to his agenda but its slowness to Republicans for their opposition to his plan.
The plans that we have put in place to grow the economy have worked, the president declared in the Oval Office. They would work even faster if we did not have the kind of obstruction that weve seen in this town to prevent additional policies that would make a difference. And there is going to be a debate going on around the budget in the coming months.
The president entered office in the midst of a severe economic downturn which has since been referred to as the Great Recession a time period sparked by the subprime mortgage crisis and the financial crisis of 2007. The recovery took years to begin and has since been incredibly slow.
Republicans in Congress are, sadly, trying to cut some of the investments that could spur additional growth, the president continued. They are blocking things like an increase in the minimum wage, or more robust investment in jobs training, infrastructure, education that can continue to lift up wages and incomes.

Just like he blames cold weather on global warming.
SOS... Bush’s fault.
“Just like he blames cold weather on global warming.”
...which he blames on Republicans.
But that knucklehead was just out there today crowing about how awesome the Obama Economy is, all the jobs created and all that.
With nearly 100M people out of the workforce.
Guess we all know which America he lives in. The one in his big dumb head.
Barry’s always good for a laugh. And some more lies.
I thought jugears and the media were praising the economy and how well it’s doing.
NOW he blames Republicans for slow growth? Which is it, good or bad?
Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
There was a time when being a complete asshole was considered a bad thing. A character flaw. OB has honed it into an art form.
..Just like he blames cold weather on global warming.
...which he blames on Republicans....
I was a little slow on that. Thought of that just as I pressed post. There’s always someone to be blamed.
cos nothing is his fault
Ask Obama where are the small business start ups?
We’re in an economic ‘death spiral’. Mr. ‘You didn’t build that’ has a lot to do with our negative economic sentiment.
What recovery? The only recovery we have seen is in the Obama adminstation’s fake numbers.
Oh yeah, and in Texas where we have all but seceded.
Obama has complete control of the administration and all of the divisions thereof. How can this clown try to blame his malfeasance on the opposing party? What a joker!
Obama blames Republicans when it rains and he can’t go golfing.
Water is wet.
What else is new?
..you are missing the whole idea . The little boy king with
NPD IS NOT THE FOCUS OF AMERICANS....it is HE who craves the attention. Mr Trump, a white man, is the conversation,he’s the main subject. The petulant little boy can’t stand the fact that the media isn’t fawning all over HIM
And sh1t flows downhill. Slow news friday... :)
