Former Obama Economic Adviser Blames Slowing Economy on DC Earthquake (Video)

Why not? They’ve blamed everything else.
Former top Obama Economic Adviser Austan Goolsbee blamed “earthquakes, tsunamis, revolutions in the Middle East, financial crisis and now we even have earthquakes outside of Washington DC” for the failed Obama economic record.

Goolsbee was on with Sean Hannity tonight.

Yeah. That DC earthquake was a huge blow to the economy.

It even knocked one spire off the National Cathedral. (AFP)

    This guy is a clown. Nice on the surface but truthfully another Obama lackey!

    Eush dubbed the this libtard as Ichabod . You can choose the rest of his moniker.

    Gee, what bad luck our President has had. I am guessing God is trying to tell him something.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Former top Obama Economic Adviser Austan Goolsbee…

    If there was any justice in this world, this Goolsbee idiot would now be unemployed, with no one wanting to hire him.

  • Patty

    I cannot imagine after the rage of Irene what the Obama Administration will say. Mother Nature’s fury cannot be stopped. But Obama’s accusations can. And hope the Republican Ads will run this pathetic loser’s words over and over.

    Americans can’t denied Obama’s own words. Since, his pathetic excuse during Gates and Cambridge incident there is no denying Obama is the one Acting Stupidly.

    Secondly, calling Bush UNPATRIOTIC? This person is president, not mine, but our president is acting like a child and leading our nation into a Crisis beyond any other and he speaks about a real man who has never said a word about Obama’s presidency.

    Obama is a national disgrace.

    This one more item that proves that liberalism is a mental derangement. Liberals are incapable of logical thought.

    I just passed gas. Will Barry be blaming my digestive system for his atrocious economic record now?

    blamed “earthquakes, tsunamis, revolutions in the Middle East, financial crisis and now we even have earthquakes outside of Washington DC”

    Amazing. All these things happened after the economy started going down the drain.

    If this doofus is the cream of the crop that Barry relied on, I hate to see who they would consider sub-par.

    Austan Goolsbee is a classic example of Obama advisors who need to pull their head out of the dark place. Now he’s a former advisor, replaced by an even bigger goofball.

    OF COURSE

    Triggered by the Bush Fault, right Austan?

    Not to get in the way of a good rant… but it knocked off 3 of 4 finials on the main tower of the DC Cathedral, not one.

    Whenever I tried excusing some dumb adolescent behavior the way Goolsbee tried excusing Obama’s economic performance my mom would tell me to, “Stop rationalizing.” Anybody think my mom needs to have a talk with the boy?

    I blame Obama and his administration for…..“earthquakes, tsunamis, revolutions in the Middle East, financial crisis and now……..earthquakes outside of Washington DC”.

    There. Fixed that headline for ya’, Jim.

  • Gimme a Break, I’m just a Hobbit

    The economy went in the tank in anticipation of Tuesday’s earthquake. It’s Keynesianism made simple (minded).

  • RedBeard

    The childish “The dog ate my homework” thing is getting tiresome. What say we hire some adults to run the White House? I mean, I think the world of my 4-year-old and 2-year-old grandsons, but I wouldn’t hire them to paint the barn, let alone be economic advisors in the federal government.

  • KR

    The “ferret” from NYT says things like the earthquake stimulate the economy.

  • MAJ Mike

    I can see it now. THE WON’s economic plan will include a billions for post-earthquake lawn furniture recovery.

  • Sam Stone

    I am SHOCKED I tell you, SHOCKED that this well educated man did not say that these natural disasters are actually a help for the economy. If unemployment is a jobs producer, then the damage done in natural disasters MUST be job producers because someone must fix all that damage!

    How could this man stray form the meme and talking points of the failed Obama regime?

  • Sam Stone

    Oh, the left is still blaming Bush for the all the ills of America but they refuse to acknowledge that Sept.11 or Katrina have any negative effect on the economy but a small earthquake does?

    How stupid do they think we are?

  • JonahVark

    BREAKING NEWS! President Obama has just confirmed that the DC earthquake occurred on a rare and obscure fault-line, apparently known as “Bush’s Fault”.

    Obama also announced that the Secret Service and Maxine Waters continue an investigation of the quake’s suspicious ties to the Tea Party.

    Conservatives however have proven that it was caused by the founding fathers rolling over in their graves

    As if no other president had to deal with disasters. GW Bush had to deal with 9/11 and the possibility of further attacks on our soil. I don’t recall the Dems giving him a pass on that.

    If I ever showed up at a meeting at my job and spewed this BS I would be laughed at. Literally, everyone would start laughing. Then I’d be fired.

    These jokers get kudos for their skillful use of blame laying.

    How do you get a job like this with so much Stupidity ?

  • greenfairie

    Ann Coulter’s comments on the Goolsbee interview afterwards were great. When she brought up his silly comments on Tuesday’s earthquake, she said, “My heart goes out to all of those people who lost their balance” during the quake.

    Dear President Obama:
    This letter is to inform you that we, The Tea Party Terrorists, are holding Washington for ransom.
    If you ever want to see your country’s economy prosper again, you will place one trillion dollars in small bills in a brown paper sack and have your man Goolsby leave it at the corner of 5th and Main, at midnight.
    The quake was just a warning.
    You got a nice capitol there. You wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to it now would you?
    Like maybe a hurricane? If you think you have headwinds now, well….
    Remember we’re watching you.
    The Tea Party Terrorists.

  • aprilnovember811

    These people are degenerates, and deranged. This is absolutely unconscionable behavior. They are committing economic terrorism. They should be arrested for what they’re doing. Sean, quit pandering to him, he’s not a president, he’s not eligible. He’s a resident of the White House. Austan Goolsbee is a liar. You caused the loss of 2.8 million jobs from your lying and criminal EPA. They are a crime syndicate parading around as legitimate govt. Bank robbers in suits and ties! LIARS!

    Sean,
    You, Mark Levin, Rush, and the others have enabled this man by letting him continue even though a legitimate issue has been raised about his birthplace. You’ve demeaned people for asking. It is a legitimate question of a sitting so called president. What were you worried about, riots, looting, fires, if it was exposed? What do you think is going to happen now? Was this criminal skin color, Obama, he is 1/2 white you know worth the destruction of this country? Was it worth the Navy Seals losing their lives, and that poor dog losing his master? Obama or the Muslims with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood he’s appointed at various levels of our govt. set them up. I don’t need evidence, I have evidence, my God given common sense.
    How about the jobs and damage from the BP Disaster he caused? I know he’s behind it. How about the shooting in AZ, I know he’s behind it. I have a God given brain to reason for heavens sake.

    Sean,
    I’m pleading with you to stop this nonsense. Encourage those you work for to start digging in and exposing this monster Obama and those around him. It’s not enough to regurgitate to the public what he’s doing everyday. We know what he’s doing. WE NEED HIM STOPPED!!! Are there anymore John Dodson’s, other ATF Agents, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, M.D.’s, or others not mentioned? This man Obama is nothing but a front man for groups like the Weathermen and Muslim Brotherhood. I know you are limited in what you can say Sean for your livelihood, but we need help, for God’s sake.

    When does the safety and security of us and our country start to trump this 1/2 black 1/2 white, 1/2 Arab man? When do people he’s hurting matter as much as those who foolishly support this sociopath? When???? It’s staring you right in the face.

    I’m inclined to believe that the Obama administration is nothing more than one singular mass of Stupid in human form.
