Obama: “Top Thing I’ve Done Is Stabilize The Economy

First we had the release from the Charlie Rose interview about Obama think his biggest issue was not telling better stories. Now that we’ve been treated to nauseated by the full interview we learn

(National Journal) During an interview with CBS’s Charlie Rose that aired on Monday morning, President Obama said his proudest achievement over the past three and a half years is stabilizing the economy, not his signature health care reform law.

My proudest achievement is actually stabilizing the economy to avert a great depression, because if I don’t do that nothing else matters,” Obama said. “And the central question becomes building on what we’ve done. Where do we go from here?”


Could someone please drug test this man? We should probably see that quote show up in a Romney add with a few days.

    Perhaps Teach you have forgotten how bad things were when Obama took over. The Dow was crashing from 14,000 down to 8500 when he was sworn in and on its way to 6500 before the stimulus stopped that free fall. It now has gone up 50% from when Bush left office. And HEY NOW how about an update on your compadre George Zimmermann. Last i heard he was being accused of some fsex crime, and that after he got ca fibbing to the court.

    We have no delusion how bad the economy was, john. However, the facts are that this recovery is the worst recovery since the Great Depression. Actual unemployment has gotten worse.

    The stimulus had nothing to do with Wall Street at all. That is just another myth in your little world. In fact, a case can be made that just as it was in the Great Depression, massive spending hurt recovery.

    All this leads to the incontrovertible fact that Obama’s actions made the economy worse, not better.

    As for Zimmerman, yeah, there is a woman who is accusing him of inappropriate acts over a decade ago when they were both young children. Yeah…. right. Any normal person would wonder why it took her so long to come forward.

    But perhaps you missed the other Zimmerman news, john?

    The FBI released a report in which they determined Martin was not profiled. If you remember, the claim Zimmerman profiled Martin was the core of the charging affidavit. Now, not only did the affidavit not give evidence to support that claim (as required), the FBI says it is false.

    Perhaps you missed as well the fact that one of the lead detectives who signed the charging affidavit has come out and said he thought there was not enough evidence to charge Zimmerman.

    Once again, the facts go against you.

  3. We remember, John. We remember this occurred right after Democrats took over the Legislative branch. But, the market is just one component of the economy, and the rest of it sucks.

    As for Zimmerman, if he is guilty, so be it. He’s not my “compatriot.” I’ll I said was that he should be accorded the protections of the legal system, rather than the rush to judgement you lefties went for.

    And once again, you are a complete liar and idiot, silly john. And, I am saddened. This latest spewage is not even funny.


    Pres GWBush oversaw 2 massive economic hardships. The economy recovered cheerily following those. Why? Because people had hope and they didn’t see doom and taxation in their future. They knew that the government would not hold success over their heads. And, the majority were still proud of our country.

    On October 11, 2007, the DJIA hit an intra-day peak of 14,198.10 before starting its decline.

    The decline of 20% by mid-2008 was in tandem with other stock markets across the globe. On September 29, 2008, the DJIA had a record-breaking drop of 777.68 with a close at 10,365.45. The DJIA hit a market low of 6,443.27 on March 6, 2009,

    Please note, it was after the TARP was created and signed that the economy began its tanking. Yes, it was global, but it was also fueled by the over-bubbled housing market and subsequent crush on energy by the new Obama government.

    But, the DJIA is a weighted average of buying and selling. When it is low, it only means people are holding on to what they have (whether that be cash or stocks). They “wait” to see what is going to happen.

    The only stabilization that Obama has done is to stabilize our economy to that of a 2nd world economy. He still wants more time to continue his efforts. He isn’t done. He wants to drive us further down to 3rd world status.

    Unlike the Repubs in power and talking heads in media, everyone else knows that Obama’s plans have succeeded and things are happening nearly exactly as he would like them to.

    For Republicans to say that he has “failed to lead” or “failed to fix” are only stating such for digestion of the media.

    Re-elect Obama if you want higher unemployment, higher energy prices, and much higher fuel and food prices. Say good bye to your 401K plans, your HSAs, and the middle-class buying power.

    The scary thing is, Obama probably believes every word of the lies he just spouted.

    “My proudest achievement is actually stabilizing the economy to avert a great depression, because if I don’t do that nothing else matters …”

    Obama is the only guy I know that speaks of an accomplishment he done … yet if he “don’t do that” … what? Yeah, he needs to be drug tested for sure.

    What? You don’t know about the ‘present past dangling participle when used as an objective transient verb’?

    Shame on you Steve, you racist!

  8. I think I need to find a druggie style emoticon to add to the list, for sole use when talking about Obama.

  9. MSG_Grumpy says:

    Obama is right, he has come close to stabilizing the economy. If you consider the actual definition of stable, the closest approximation to absolute stability is DEATH. I would agree that is his goal for the American economy = DEATH by obama!
