Back To This Job Creation Thing Barack...

Updated on July 21, 2012

Create Any Jobs Lately Barack?

It's hard for Team Obama to stay on message these days. They want to talk about everything but the economy and Obama's failed policies. As James Carville so aptly put it back when, "It's the economy Stupid!"

Maybe all you business owners out there should take heart. You now know that if you are successful and created jobs for people that you didn't do that. Somebody else (read: the government) did that for you. But the shiny side of that is that you have obviously created more jobs than Barack Hussein Obama has ever created. I keep hearing Democratic talking heads saying "Obama has created 4 million jobs, blah, blah, blah..."

In fact Obama has never created a job in his life. The government's role might be, on a good day, to foster a healthy climate where businesses can start up, create jobs, expand and provide for the overall welfare of the economy but get real. The federal government should not be in the business of creating jobs. When it does they usually involve "make work" type opportunities.

Two instances have recently come to mind regarding Obama and the economy, both of which seem to center on his creating a commission, council or whatever other name you care to call it of experts/advisers to conduct deep studies for him to digest. The two that come immediately to mind are the Bowles/Simpson Commission concerning taxation and spending and the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

Ironically Obama named the Bowles/Simpson effort The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility & Reform. Unfortunately for this bi-partisan commission, Obama never had any intention of ever being fiscally responsible nor reforming our entitlement heavy society. The commission's focus was on reducing the debt and Obama has also never had that flavor of ice cream in his cone either. The Commission's findings and recommendations were summarily dismissed by the White House even though they still occasionally hit the headlines as those measures that are going to be necessary in order to actually reduce our debt and not just raise taxes to enable the government to continue to spend even more of our hard earned tax dollars.

Lately people have begun to ask, "When was the last time Obama and his Council on Jobs & Competitiveness" held a session to discuss job creation?" Turns out it appears to be sometime this past January - the 17th to be exact. It seems that Obama is distracted from running our nation and more intent on campaigning and raising money so that he can keep his own job. I seriously doubt that at this point he cares whether you keep your job or not, just so he keeps his seems to be his focus. A successful incumbent can usually rest a bit easy about being re-elected. But I did say "successful."

He's totally preoccupied with campaigning. He's out there acting the clown and making totally false accusations against others while at the same time failing to accept any responsibility for his own failed policies and actions. His answer now is to "raise taxes on the rich." That would be those who make more than $250K a year as a couple and $200K as an individual. He's been down that route before and Congress, the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform (AKA the debt reduction commission) and his own Council on Jobs & Competitiveness all seem to agree that what he is proposing is bad policy and counterproductive to the creation of jobs in this nation. That isn't even taking into consideration that what he is talking about will be like an ant pissing on a forest fire regarding the excessive spending he doesn't want to adress.

Hope He Paid His Bill...

The American people do deserve better. What we have experienced since he assumed office is inexcusable from a leadership perspective. The came into a bad job's situation and rather than focus on that we ended up with an unpopular health care bill. He spent about $1 trillion of our tax money on a failed stimulus program then joked that "shovel ready wasn't really shovel ready." He appoints commissions and councils of experts then if their findings don't match his anti-capitalistic views he ignore those same experts.

Listen to the campaign rhetoric going on out there across the nation while he continues to ignore the pressing issues facing this nation. What is being said plays well in the rich versus poor, haves versus have nots theater but it is not doing diddly squat in creating jobs. Listen to it closely and where it is being said. In the swing states of Virginia, Ohio and Florida he tells his fawning followers that he is going to increase federal spending and wants more funding for his green energy horror stories. Where is that money going to come from? The deficit needs to be reduced not expanded.

At the time we, as a nation, needed leadership we got Barack Hussein Obama. Now we need leadership more than ever so lets not get stuck with Obama again. Yes Mr. Speaker, the American people do deserve better and some of us are working towatd achieving that goal.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The choice for President has now been made clear by Obama. After November's election you will either succeed by your own efforts, talents and hard work or you will let the government be the decider of who will be successful and who will not be.

As Always,

The Frog Prince

Remember In November!

      Frog: Well, Jim, you keep coming up with graphics that pretty much spell out the message all by themselves! (Like both the "mess he'll inherit" and the milk carton.)

      But your closing Thought for the Day ain't bad, either.

      I often wonder what event in a hard core Liberals life caused them to develop their particular way of thinking about things. Or for that matter, why a hard core Conservative thinks the way they do. Something or someone had to have had a great deal of influence be it a friend, teacher, parent, or some perceived injustice they suffered. Kind of interesting when you think about it. Most of us fall somewhere in the middle between these two.

      Frog, you are correct. Liberals live in Shangri-La, their little make believe world where everything is as they expect it to be. Their world is subjective, of course. If they say something they believe to be true, then it IS true! That is why liberals recoil in horror when people call them out on their BS here in the real world. In their world, there are no checks and balances, there is only what they say it is and to hell to with what others may say or believe. "Reality" is a four letter word to a your typical delusional liberal. I accept them for the children they are and just go from there. No sense in trying to debate them off Delusion Mountain in Shangri-La.

      tsadjatko - Understand that Whimsy lives in his own little world. His ability to "twist words," as you ut it, gives him solace in his paranoia. It took me a while to understand the mentality so I just let it ramble on unto itself.

      Wizard Of Whimsy, as usual you twist what is said to denigrate someone who disagrees with your point of view - Frogs hubs clearly and honestly give us an assessment of Obama, of whom there are myriads of honest assessments that I'm sure you deem irrational, unfair and inaccurate - my statement was far from any type of assessment - merely a description of how it will feel to have him gone and never repeat the mistake. So I chose the holocaust because it was something bad that shouldn't be repeated - I suppose you would say "remember Obama" when he is gone is like "remember the Alamo" as if Obama was good for the country? Give me a break.

      You're right. All Obama cares about is Obama. Even if he gets reelected, he'll continue to make things worse, not better. What's the point of creating budget and jobs commissions if you're not going to fix the budget or eliminate impediments to creating jobs? I guess this post is one thing Obama won't say he built for us.

      Your commentary is realistic and to the point, Jim, and the posters would be laughable if they were not so true. Obummy can't find any accomplishments to trumpet (they are all negative) so he continues to play the blame game. He IS a pro at that.

      Now there's a rational, fair and accurate assessment of Obama—he is the equivalent evil in the world as those who slaughtered six million Jews. Some Americans are just so tolerant and reasonable that it scares me!

      from Writer David's comment "I mention this because these same people are going to remember Obama...

      I can't wait until we can say that phrase "remember Obama" in a new context! like remember the Holocaust.

      Let it never happen again.

      I saw a documentary on HBO about the chronically unemployed. The show centered on professional people. I'm talking about people with masters degrees and even a PhD or two. They have been out of work for approximately 18-24 months. They also said they get steamed each time some politician says that the recession if over and jobs are being created. I mention this because these same people are going to remember Obama not even meeting with his jobs council in six months. He is too busy trying to protect his job rather than focus on the jobless in this country. The 15-20 million unemployed watch Obama increase more competition for these few jobs by allowing hi tech foreign nationals to immigrate to a nation with so many professional unemployed. Again, these people will remember this come November.

      The guy is campaigning like he's running against the incumbent president. He's making promises again about things he's going to do, but he's the president now and isn't doing anything about it.

      Obama is the consummate fraud. He creates a jobs commission and then forgets all about it. He's all about the soundbite. Up and awesome.

      The more I read about this, the more confused I get. The government gave me a great business to run, but then they left me holding the bag for everything else. I had to pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Liability Insurance, Unemployment Insurance, Self Employment tax, and of course Income Tax on what was left of the profits. The state required me to have and pay annually for a Contractors License, and pay for a bond. I kept waiting for a check from the Feds to help me pay for these added costs, but I guess they lost my address.

      On those rare times that I was sick as a dog with the flu or something, the government never once sent anyone to take my place. I had to go to work even when I should have stayed in bed for the day.

      At times I was in hiring mode, but couldn't find anyone interested in going to work until their unemployment insurance ran out.

      I have now put this nightmare behind me, and hope and pray the government never gives me another business.

      Soon this perversion of a wanna be a POTUS will be without a job, and without a country. Prison is the place for criminals, Hell is the place for traitors. I hope he has a rough trip getting to his destination. . .
