Obama Plans Yet Another Campaign Style Pivot To The Economy

This reminds me of one of those bad movies they keep playing on TV. Or of Sharknado, which had enormous hype, and was even worse than the usual dreck on the SyFy channel

(NY Times) With major battles looming in the fall over the federal budget and the debt ceiling, President Obamais trying to regain the initiative, embarking on a campaign-style tour of the Midwest this week to lay out his agenda for reinvigorating the nation’s economy, administration officials said Sunday.

Mr. Obama’s offensive will begin on Wednesday in Galesburg, Ill., with what his aides are saying will be a major address on economic policy at Knox College. Officials declined to provide details of the president’s message, but said he would set his terms for what they expect will be another bruising battle with a Republican-controlled House over the nation’s fiscal policies.

White House officials liken Wednesday’s speech to one he gave in 2011 in Osawatomie, Kan., where he articulated the theme of economic inequality in American society that became a leitmotif of his re-election campaign, and to one at Georgetown University soon after taking office in 2009, when he talked about how the American economy would recover from the Great Recession.

Yet, these same policies have been abject failures. The $850 billion 2009 Stimulus didn’t. The nation is becoming one of part time employment. Food prices, energy costs, you name it, they’re rising above pay. There are record numbers of people who’ve given up on getting a job. Record numbers of people on food stamps. The long term unemployed jumped from 2.6 million in 2007 to 5.3 million in 2012. Household incomes continue to fall. College graduates have poor job opportunities and huge debt. The GDP continues to stagnate. One only need look towards Detroit to see the outcome of Progressive economic, and other, policies.

Yet, here’s Obama doing the Neverending Campaign schtick, in what will surely be a blamestorming campaign, going after Republicans while offering nothing more than platitudes and retreads of his failed policies. Oh, and then, as Americans suffer thanks to those same failed policies

(Fox News) The first family is returning this summer to Martha’s Vineyard, the third time the Obamas have vacationed on the exclusive Massachusetts island in the past four years.

President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will arrive August 10 and stay through August 18, the White House said earlier this month.

Mr. 1% will spend 8 days living the highlife amongst other 1%er while Americans are having tough times. And this will cost millions in taxpayer money for all the support staff, Secret Service, aids, drivers, and the Coast Guard offshore for protection, while his Sequester leaves our military with furloughs. Quite a juxtaposition: Obama living the highlife while Detroit deals with bankruptcy.

  1. john says:

    the highest budget deficit was 1.4 trillion it was the last one signed by Bush. Obama now has that down to 50% As the economy gets beeter the deficit will drop. Fortunately the cost of borrowing for the Federal Government is just about 0%. This means that the money we borrow now will be paid back with inflated dfollars. It is really like a negative interest rate

    John is a complete and utter idiot troll. According to Whitehouse.gov even, all 4 of Obama’s years have seen record +$1Trillion budget deficits. All during the Bush years when the Democrats were screaming about how the War On Terror was bankrupting the nation, and spending on ammo and guns was out of control leading to skyrocketing deficits….. Bush never had a deficit over $500Billion.

    Per the story:

    Yes, I too find “MR OBAMA” offensive. Love how the author does not refer to him as “el presidente”.

    And, he doesn’t have alot of room to complain as he has spent the last 2 weeks complaining about George Zimmerman, and vacationing in mutli-million dollar vacation trips. How many has he taken since he first declared “laser-like focus on job creation”?

    I think we need a poll to determine if anyone believes him. Then we can poll those pollsters and then write about how the author felt when reading that poll.

  3. John had to get his deflection in, because he has no way to really counter the shitty economy.

    Hey, remember the last time Obama was pivoting to the economy? This May. He went to Texas and instead of listening gave a speech telling Texas, which is doing well, why Obama’s ideas are better.
