The president’s speech was flat, just like the unemployment report. At 8.1%, the rate is extraordinarily high and crushing to the hopes of millions and millions of would-be workers and their families. The new jobs report is terrible, and though the percentage dropped slightly that just reflects the millions of Americans who are giving up and no longer looking for work. 96,000 jobs created is far below predictions, and the predictions were themselves muted. The president’s plan to allow massive tax hikes to kick in will worsen the problem, as well Obamacare’s impact as it rolls out, further crushing the ability of small to mid-size businesses to grow and add more workers.
The jobs picture in the country is simply a disaster.
Obama took a bad situation –a panic and a sharp recession– and turned it into much worse, a near depression. His policies and proposals will make the already dire situation even worse. When somebody doesn’t do the job, you’ve just got to let them go.
Last night’s big presidential speech has been panned across the ideological spectrum, and today’s number means a terrible start to the campaign which is going to get uglier and uglier as the Chicago Gang realizes its hold on power is slipping. American voters may get fooled every now and then as they did in 2008, but they do not choose decline and despair, do not double down on broken promises and abject failure.
Off to a gathering of doctors who know what Obamacare is doing to medicine in this country. They have the facts, as you should. The Brief Against Obama: The Rise, Fall and Epic Fail of the Hope and Change Presidency. Facts are stubborn things. The country, by dozens of measures, is far worse off than four years ago. It is all in the book, footnoted beyond debate.
And if President Obama is re-elected, it will be worse off still. Thursday’s speech and friday’s job report proved that beyond a doubt.
