OBAMA’S MILE HIGH CLUB: Part Five

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA




Mile High, Still Just An Inch Deep

Obama Accepted His Nomination With Mile-High Rhetoric Nearly Three Years Ago In Denver, But Has Since Delivered Mile-High Debt, Deficits, And Unemployment

TAXES THEN: OBAMA: “Change Means A Tax Code That Doesn’t Reward The Lobbyists Who Wrote It, But The American Workers And Small Businesses Who Deserve It.” (Sen. Barack Obama, Acceptance Speech Remarks At The Democratic National Convention, Denver, CO, 8/28/08)

NOW: Obama Admitted He Will Raise Taxes On Job-Creators If He Is Reelected. OBAMA:“That is a reasonable proposition. So, when you hear folks saying ‘Well, the president shouldn’t want massive job killing tax increases when the economy is this weak.’ Nobody’s looking to raise taxes right now. We’re talking about potentially 2013 and the out years.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks At Press Conference, Washington, D.C., 7/11/11)

Who Is Alan Krueger?

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA



Obama Nominates Advocate For $500 Billion Tax Increase Through Value-Added Tax

“President Barack Obama Nominates Princeton University’s Alan Krueger To Be Chairman Of The White House Council Of Economic Advisers, A White House Official Said.”(David Wessel, “Labor Economist To Fill Key Post,” The Wall Street Journal, 8/29/11)

LACKS REAL WORLD BUSINESS EXPERIENCE. Krueger should fit right in with the rest of Obama’s administration they have less business experience than a bunch of fifth graders…
If you’re wondering why it seems that the Obama Administration truly doesn’t understand how the free market works or why it thinks that we can simply spend our way out of a bad market, you need look no further than the make-up of the personnel on his team. In the past 110 years, we have never seen such a cabinet lacking in business expertise. Yes, there are many lawyers who have worked with businesses, but if you have to look at making payroll, making decisions that affect products in the market, market research, hiring and firing, well, you’re looking at 92% of a cabinet sans business experience with nary a clue how to deal with this economy. If we were in a legal crisis, we might all feel warm and fuzzy.Politifacts claims this is false, but asserts legal experience substitutes for business experience. You can decide for yourself as here is their link. From JP Morgan Private Bank via Michael Cembalest research published by Forbes.com:

Krueger Has Little To No Real World Business/Private Sector Experience. (Alan B. Krueger, Curriculum Vitae, Accessed 8/29/11)

Krueger“Another Example” Of Obama White House Favoring Individuals With No Private Sector Experience To Key Economic Positions. “Alan Krueger nod another example that there’s nothing this White House prizes like previous administration experience.” (Ezra Klein, Twitter Feed, Accessed 8/29/11)·

Ezra Klein: “Krueger fits the Jack Lew, Gene Sperling, Bruce Reed, etc model closely, where the White House prefers to go inside than out.”(Ezra Klein, Twitter Feed, Accessed 8/29/11)

The Truth about Texas Job Growth

Monday, August 29th, 2011
(Liberals, please go look up the definition of “truth” before proceeding)
Obama and his loony tune financial advisers seem to think that doing all things Keynesian will get the economy back on track.

rick-perry

We’d love to see a Rick Perry vs. Jerry Brown death match on the next UFC card.

It seems that Dallas Fed chief Richard Fisher has a different take on things and uses Texas as a shining example:

On Wednesday, Richard Fisher, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, gave a speech in which he separated “fact from fiction” about the record of job creation in Texas.

We can help but wonder whose fiction he was talking about?

Problem Solver: Green Jobs

Monday, August 29th, 2011

The greatest idea in history: How to solve the budget, poverty, obesity  and energy problems simultaneously

We bow to the genius of Walter Russell Mead. In fact, this is one guy we wouldn’t mind seeing President Obama bow to.

Mead’s article at TheAmericanInterest.com explains that green jobs are complete nonsense or, if you prefer, complete B.S.:

The belief that green jobs would drive a new era of American prosperity was — like the large majority of green policy chat — intellectually incoherent. The goods that drive renewable energy industries, like so much else in this world, are far cheaper to construct in Asia. As the NYT piece describes, SolFocus, a widely-celebrated solar power company based, only has 90 employees at their San Jose headquarters. The solar panels are assembled in China. Whether a product is an ordinary t-shirt or an admirable piece of world saving green technology like a wind turbine has zilch, zero, nada influence on the mind of the manufacturer trying to decide where it should be made.

Get ready. Here comes the idea that’s destined to win Mead a shelf full of Nobels:

Must Be Nice in the Vineyard: Part Two

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

By BARBARA ESPINOSA

Obama Jets Off To Martha’s Vineyard, Leaving Americans To Deal With The Consequences Of His Failed Economic Policies

EVEN OBAMA’S DEMOCRAT ALLIES ARE WONDERING HOW HE CAN PROMOTE JOB CREATION FROM THE BEACH

“President Obama’s Plans For A La-Di-Da Vacation With The Glitterati On Martha’s Vineyard This Week Are Now Drawing Friendly Fire From The Ranks Of His Own Party, As The Nation Remains Deeply Mired In Economic Turmoil.” (Chris Cassidy, “Dems Bop President Obama For His Vacay,” The Boston Herald,8/16/11)

Newton, MA Mayor Says Obama Should Cancel Martha’s Vineyard Vacation. “Despite the ongoing financial crisis President Obama is planning to take his Martha’s Vineyard vacation. But Newton mayor and Democratic Senate candidate Setti Warren is calling the President out for taking time off.“ (“Newtown Mayor Calls Obama Out For Taking Time Off” WHDH-TV [Boston, MA], 8/11/11)   Click To Watch

Even Obama Supporters Think Obama Should Cancel His Trip Due To The “Urgency” Of The Nation’s Economic Troubles. “Some of his supporters believe the economic slowdown has reached a level of urgency that he should at least abbreviate the family trip, if not cancel it altogether.” (Peter Nicholas, “As Some Call For Bold Strokes, Obama Sticks With Vacation Plans,” Los Angeles Times, 8/10/11)

  • One Major Democrat Donor Said, “If There Were A Real Jobs Summit And A Jobs Push, I Would Feel Much Better. We’re Not Paying Enough Attention To Jobs.” “‘I think he can shorten his vacation and focus on this issue,’ said Peter Buttenwieser, a major Democratic donor who counts himself as an admirer of Obama. ‘If there were a real jobs summit and a jobs push, I would feel much better. We’re not paying enough attention to jobs.’” (Peter Nicholas, “As Some Call For Bold Strokes, Obama Sticks With Vacation Plans,” Los Angeles Times, 8/10/11)
  • “’I Believe That The President Should Consider Postponing His Vacation And Call Congressional Leaders Back To Washington To Propose Serious Jobs Legislation To Present To Congress For Immediate Legislative Action,’ U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas (D-Lowell) Said In A Statement To The Herald.” (Chris Cassidy, “Dems Bop President Obama For His Vacay,” The Boston Herald, 8/16/11)

The Washington Post’s Colbert King: “But to be leaving town to spend 10 days luxuriating in an affluent, New England summer town when millions of Americans can’t find work? To fly off to the Vineyard when the public is losing faith in Washington’s ability to fix the nation’s economic problems, and with people anxious about their futures? What is he thinking? It’s not as if the Obama family is living in deprivation in Washington.” (Colbert King, Op-Ed, “It’s No Time For A Presidential Vacation,” The Washington Post,8/16/11)

“This Is No Time For The President To Dwell In Splendid Seclusion Among The Rich And Famous. Barack Obama’s Got Business To Attend To.” (Colbert King, Op-Ed, “It’s No Time For A Presidential Vacation,” Washington Post,8/16/11)

“He Should Use This Summer To Spend Some Time With Folks Who Can’t Afford To Take A Vacation. And Not Just In Iowa, Illinois And Minnesota, Which Happen To Be States That He Won In 2008.” (Colbert King, Op-Ed, “It’s No Time For A Presidential Vacation,” The Washington Post,8/16/11)

Obama Is Still Going To Martha’s Vineyard, “As If In A State Of Oblivion.” “Our president will go to Martha’s Vineyard on vacation this week. Reporters asked him if he was still going to go, considering the desperate shape the country was in, with millions out of work and others losing their retirement savings. As if in a state of oblivion, he said yes.” (Editorial, “Can Obama Succeed?” The Buffalo News, 8/16/11)

“In A Perverse Way, Perhaps There’s No Difference Between Obama Doing Nothing In Washington And Doing Nothing For The Country While On Vacation.” (Editorial, “Can Obama Succeed?” The Buffalo News, 8/16/11)

WHILE OBAMA VACATIONS, THE REST OF AMERICA DEALS WITH 9.1PERCENT UNEMPLOYMENT, A VOLATILE STOCK MARKET, AND AN UNPRECEDENTED DOWNGRADE OF THE COUNTRY’S CREDIT RATING

The Jobs Crisis Is America’s “Chief Concern” And “The Biggest Drain On Our Economy.” “It’s Americans’ chief concern. The biggest drain on our economy. The greatest threat to our future and our children’s future. No, it’s not the debt ceiling or the budget deficit. It’s the jobs crisis — the fact that we’re stuck in a rut of tepid job growth and record high long-term unemployment, and seem hard pressed to do anything about it.” (Christine Owens, “Biggest Threat To Future? The Jobs Crisis,” CNN, 8/4/11)

  • The Unemployment Rate Is 9.1%. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, BLS.gov, Accessed 8/16/11)
  • Since Obama Took Office, The Nation Has Lost 2,373, 000 Jobs. (Bureau of Labor Statistics, BLS.gov, Accessed 8/16/11)

Mark Zandi, Chief Economist For Moody’s, Believes The Economy Will Not Grow Enough To Add Jobs Fast Enough To Keep Unemployment Rate Stable. “‘The odds of a renewed recession over the next 12 months, already one in three, will increase if stock prices continue to fall,’ Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, says in the report. He said the economy must grow 2.5 percent to 3 percent a year to add jobs fast enough to keep the unemployment rate stable –something that won’t happen soon.” (“Moody’s Lowers US Economic Outlook Through 2012,” The Associated Press, 8/15/11)  Research:www.gop.com
