Obama Talks About Jobs

Posted by madjillmom on June 9, 2012

PresBO is trying to walk back his “the private sector is doing fine”comment during his press briefing yesterday.  The decision to have a mini-presser yesterday is pretty weird. The only thing he could have said to explain the mini-presser was that he is in favor of an independent prosecutor to find the leaks in his White House.  But he didn’t do that.

So yesterday afternoon, he told us that he knows the private sector isn’t doing well.  He then told us he talks about jobs.  He talks about jobs on Friday, the day before, the week before, the month before, and the past year.  He talks.  He doesn’t do.

I guess he was talking about jobs when he met with 24 young stars last week in secret.  If he spent the same amount of time working with the congress as he does doing fundraisers with the George Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker, and others, there might be something that could be done.  Of course, the jobs situation is bad because of Obama policies and a mountain of yet to be written rules in Dodd/Frank and Obamacare.  No one is going to crawl out on a limb with new hires if Obama and his Dems are behind them with saws.  Yes, there are headwinds.   China is in slowdown.  Europe is in recession and counties are bankrupt.  A stong America could help the world weather this storm.  Too bad Obama doesn’t know what it takes to make the American economy strong.  Maybe things will get better is he talks a little bit more.

I propose that Harry Reid, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Mitch McConnell all install themselves on Air Force 1 so they can have some real time with the campaigning PresBO.  They can wait on the tarmac while PresBO collects checks from the 1%.

Why Can’t Pres. Obama say the Surge worked?

Posted by madjillmom on February 28, 2009

Yesterday, Pres. Obama told the troops at Camp Lejuene about his plans for the ongoing wars. Going to pull out of Iraq by August 2011. For almost a year there will be 50,000 noncombatant soldiers to help with things before the August 2011 pull out. Last week announced 17,000 additional troops in Afghanistan. One report said he met 24 times with his military advisors. I am not sure I believe that. He split the difference. He wanted 16 months, General’s wanted 23, 19 it is. That will show them who is boss.

Never once did he say the Surge worked. Nor did he use the work Victory. One of the Dems complaints about Pres. Bush was that he would never say he was wrong. Apparently, Obama has this same foible. Also, the agreement between the Iraqi government and the United States was taken down off the Whitehouse website.

I keep wondering if, after talking with George Clooney on Monday, he will deliver a Friday speech and let us know how many troops will be dispatched to Africa for some special humanitarian mission.

In the Midst of Crisis, Pres. Obama meets with George Clooney

Posted by madjillmom on February 25, 2009

We don’t have the details of TARP 2, the “Save the American Automobile” Committee hasn’t given us anything, the Omnibus Pork bill is looming in the near future, there is no HHS secretary designate, the economy is in a inherited tailspin, and the Pres. complained on Tuesday that he has enough on his plate without the economic concerns. Somehow Pres. Obama did find some time to meet with George Clooney on Monday. That is just great. I know I feel better now. Everything will soon be just fine. Apparently they talked about Darfur. I wonder if Sec. of State Hillary was in the meeting?

Isn’t Obama a big enough star to not be impressed with stars? Guess not.
