Obama's Big Economy Speech: No Hope, No Change
 

Well, Obama gave a long speech today in Ohio.

This article obviously is going to criticize all the way.

It sounded like the same old same old as usual.

Nothing solid IMO.

Obama supporters must certainly be questioning the campaign strategies by now, as we have seen many gaffes and "wishful thinking" talk.

Who was Obama trying to convince ??



Please rebut the author's criticisms:

He comes out strong

President Obama’s campaign speech on the economy today was an utter disaster for him. It was a bromide of tired old arguments, pathetic blame-placing, and shopworn con tricks. And even liberals like Jonathan Alter had to admit that it was, overall, a dramatic failure.



sets up the criticisms

He began where he always does: with blame. “We’ve been wrestling with these issues for a long time,” he said. “The problems we’re facing right now have been more than a decade in the making …. For more than a decade, it had become harder to find a job that paid the bills, harder to save, harder to retire, harder to keep up with rising costs of gas and health care and college tuitions.” Translation: Blame Bush.



continues with some "facts"

The Blame Bush nonsense continued apace:

We were told that huge tax cuts, especially for the wealthiest Americans, would lead to faster job growth. We were told that fewer regulations, especially for big financial institutions and corporations, would bring about widespread prosperity. We were told that it was OK to put two wars on the nation’s credit card; that tax cuts would create a enough growth to pay for themselves.

Fact: huge tax cuts did lead to greater job growth. Bush oversaw 52 consecutive months of job growth under his watch, beginning in September 2003 and December 2007.

Fact: tax cuts did begin to pay for themselves. The deficit began to shrink under President Bush between 2005 and 2007 thanks to increased tax revenue generated from economic growth.

Fact: fewer regulations did create widespread prosperity. What led to the economic meltdown was government pressure on private institutions to make shoddy loans to subprime borrowers.


[continues]



Then Obama got into his litany of false accomplishments:

“Our businesses have gone back to basics and created over 4 million jobs in the last 27 months; more private sector jobs than were created during the entire seven years before this crisis, in a little over two years.” When a huge number of people are unemployed, it is easier to create jobs. The question isn’t how many jobs were “created.” It’s how many people are still out of work. This is choosing a selective timeline. Note that Obama doesn’t say what happened prior to the last 27 months.


“And when my opponents and others were arguing that we should let Detroit go bankrupt, we made a bet on American workers and the ingenuity of American companies and today our auto industry is back on top of the world.” Bankruptcy does not mean that companies lay off all their workers and shut their doors. It means they undergo forced reorganization. The fact is that the auto bailouts have left the taxpayer billions in the hole, and that Obama stuck stakeholders with the bill when he turned the American auto industry over to the auto unions.


“But let’s be clear: Not only are we digging out of a hole that is 9 million jobs deep, we’re digging out from an entire decade where 6 million manufacturing jobs left our shores; where costs rose but incomes and wages didn’t; and where the middle class fell further and further behind.” Obama’s plan to bring those jobs back: tax the companies that want to ship them overseas, and force them to pay higher salaries and more benefits to American employees. Great plan.

No matter what Obama says, the media is going to convince everyone it was complete garbage. And I'm not an Obama supporter.

It was absolutely Obamas worst speech so far.


Dana Milbank from the Washington Post called Obamas speech a :

Falsehood wrapped in a fallacy .


Ouch !!!
-----------
It's over.

Obamas policies have failed.

His gaffe about the "private sector is doing fine" made him look out of touch

with reality.

This speech he gave makes him look like an amateur fool.

We are in an economic mess and Obama has - no - solutions.

All he can do is blame Bush.

Winners lead. Losers blame others.

---------------
Somebody better call Hillary. This is going to get ugly really fast!

You see the irony of blaming Obama and then saying losers blame others, right?

I am not the president of the united states.

Obama is.

He has no solutions. Socialism doesn't work.

Do we really need a re-cap from you about every single Brietbart article that comes out every single day???

Brietbart is quickly becoming tabloid quality...and the articles you keep spamming the board with aren't even anything new or shocking...just take Obama's everyday schedule and attempt to make it into something negative.

How many threads on articles talking about Obama speeches have you made exactly???

This is an election year.

The presidential election is in less than 5 months.

Obama is looking weaker everyday.

In an act of total desperation Obama gave a - rotten - speech in Ohio about

the economy. Dana Milbank from the Washington Post called Obamas speech a

- falsehood wrapped in a fallacy - !


It is ALL going wrong for Obama. He can't do anything right.

Oh, so Romney would be fine then? He is 'anybody'

The only people who say 'anybody but Obama' are Republicans unwilling to admit they are Republicans.

Ron Paul supporters say they support Ron Paul

Gary Johnson supporters say they support Gary Johnson.

That's absurd. You clearly dont know what Marxism actually is. Obama is no different than Bush. And Bush was no 'Marxist'. I think maybe a polis sci course at the local JC might serve you well.

Obama has wrapped a wet blanket around Free Market Capitalism with

- unending regulations -.

Only an Anti - capitalist would do that.

-----------
BTW, Obama is not alone. Maxine Waters is another one.

So is Elisabeth Warren.

There are posters hanging on the walls in Greece right now. They say

Resist Capitalism 100% .


Well, at least they are honest.

No. I want you to cite the regulations that you say Obama has implemented that have strangled capitalism. Not a link to a FOX opinion piece.

Or are you unable to do so?

ObamaCare regulations are putting a dark cloud over small businesses.

Dodd / Frank regulations are forcing jobs overseas.

Wow. Those those two things are what is keeping the US economy from going back to its Bubble-economy boom days under a Dem congress in the first 7 years of the 2000's?

All we have to do is repeal those two things and we can go back to prosperity? Its so simple!

ObamaCare is introducing something called - uncertainty - into our economy.

It's hard to plan expenses when you don't know what they are.

--------
Small businesses will -boom- when Obama is removed from office.

Oh my


I can't believe what I am reading coming from a guy who trashed every single Ron Paul thread he could for the last year.


What's wrong Outkast? Now that people are focusing on your hero and his lack of leadership, are you getting a bit testy?
