He just doesn't seem sure anymore !

Obama says that it is "Absolutely Clear that the economy is not fine" (June 8, 2012)




Now the blame game and finger pointing ?


from real Clear politics;

"It's absolutely clear the economy is not doing fine," President Obama said at the White House shortly after declaring "the private sector is doing fine" at a press conference Friday morning. That’s the reason I had a press conference. That’s why I spent yesterday, the day before yesterday, this past week, this past month and this past year talking about how we can make the economy stronger. The economy is not doing fine. There are too many people out of work. The housing market is still weak, too many homes underwater and that’s precisely why I asked Congress to start taking some steps that can make a difference.”

Obama Backtracks




from The Hill;

Hours after saying the private sector is “doing fine,” President Obama on Friday walked back those remarks, saying it’s “absolutely clear” the economy is not fine.

Obama corrected himself at an Oval Office press availability just hours after making the original remark to reporters in the White House briefing room during an impromptu statement and press conference.

The verbal gaffe offered a political gift to Republicans and capped a miserable week for the president, who was on the losing side of Wisconsin’s recall election and saw his campaign beaten in fundraising by Republican Mitt Romney for the month of May.

Talk about putting your foot in your mouth.



Sometimes it's easy to forget the magnitude of the recession. See, he's still obviously having trouble remembering.
Funny how it changes depending on if he's trying to blame someone or defend his administration.

Translation:

Obama "the economy is fine"

until he got called on his BS

the fix:

Obama says that is absolutely clear the economy is not fine which is an admission the last 3 years have been an abject failure.

Love when Obama is honest

I see the difference now. The private sector is doing fine, but the economy isn't. I can see where many would get the two confused, but I'm sure Obama equates the economy with the ability of the government to spend and he can't spend as much as he wants, so it's absolutely not fine.

Ugh so frustrating.

he got the situation covered....

in his mind the 'system' is fine...just as long as Congress passes his programs & polices

but the economy is underperforming because his programs are not being followed


go smoke another cigarette there President Øbama.... calm down... your rhetoric is showing

I'm pretty sure that BHO has that look on his face because, as he put it, "Michele doesn't go all the way down."

Its not Obama's Fault nor anybody's fault sadly everywhere the economic's are collapsing, and what makes you think Romney will fix the economy again? just because Romney is a Businessman?
ugh you do know that in Business.

To stay on the top you need take others out of the picture.
