Apparently, our POTUS (you know who he is) is now blaming earthquakes and Europe for the disastrous economy here in our country.
He may have a golden tongue, but certainly has the opposite of the Midas touch.
In case you think that soundbite is a poor selection to hang your hat on, read this article from the Washington Examiner.
“The signal was clear. Obama had already ignored his own deficit reduction commission in preparing his annual budget, which was later rejected 97-0 in the Senate. Now he was signaling that the time for governing was over and that he was entering campaign mode 19 months before the November 2012 election. People took notice, especially those people who decide whether to hire or not. Goldman Sachs’s Current Activity Indicator stood at 4.2 percent in March. In April — in the middle of which came Obama’s GW speech — it was 1.6 percent. For May it is 1 percent. . . . The message to job creators was clear. Hire at your own risk. Higher taxes, more burdensome regulation and crony capitalism may be here for some time to come.”
