How Pelosi-esque. Our Doofus in Chief believes handing out unemployment benefits creates more jobs than building a gas pipeline.
The Examiner reported:

As Obama called for passage of those bills, he also responded to a recent Republican push to require him to approve the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada. “However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline,” he said, “they’re going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance.”

And you wonder why he’s the worst jobs president since the Great Depression?

  1. That’s our participation trophy pResident bahahha

  2. Gosh I didn’t realize that collecting unemployment was considered a valid occupation.

    So I suppose when one is asked, ‘do you have a job?’

    One should reply. ‘yes, I collect my unemployment check for a living.’

  3. Did he REALLY say that??????????

  4. It seems to me that since UI payments are but a fraction of normal salary the cant create new jobs in fact there will always be a net job loss with respect to UI given that differential. Of course if no UI were paid the related job losses would probably be higher but that doesnt mean that UI is preferable to holding a job or that it creates jobs. The Pres. is off his nut on this one and on blaming Al Gore’s internet for unemployment.

  5. What a total loser! I guess that is the Marxist/Socialist mindset again ….

  6. So the money being sucked out of the taxpayers to pay the loafers isn’t damaging the economy?

    What a pathetic azzwipe.

    BHO – Putting the POS in POtuS since 2008.

  7. ++

    ask yourselves why Obama is still sitting in the Oval Office??

    other than “he was purposely placed there to transition
    US into the NWO”, good luck finding a logical answer.. :P


  8. i suppose the need to hire more claims adjusters to staff the local unemployment offices would qualify as jobs created. along with the need to bring on more employees to process applications for all the side benefits such as fuel assistance, medical assistance, food stamps, etc. the government thrives on others misfortune.

  9. Only jobs created by UE are underground jobs

  10. Well since banks have been giving home loans based on welfare checks as INCOME,
    what’s wrong with the regime justifying food-stamps and unemployment checks as good for the economy ?

  11. “…and extending unemployment insurance.”

    Good God. Did he really say this?

    He can’t be that breathtakingly stupid, can he? Did the voters really and truly put a moron into the White House???

  12. “However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline,” he said, “they’re going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance.”

    One can only wonder, since he is openly admitting both would create jobs, why he so clearly sees it as a either/or proposition.

    Shouldn’t he be trying to create as many jobs as possible instead of doing just enough in his mind? Or is he admitting that job creation is merely a political game to him, as his statement implies?

  13. There are some “inner city” neighborhoods in our country where 90-95% people don’t work and subsist on gubmind checks.
    So following Obama’s logic, can these neighborhoods be classified as almost 100% employed ?

  14. POS SØBama will receive a lifetime pension of almost $200,000 yearly + perks for his service to this great nation.

  15. Oh I see, simple logic… the more unemployed there are the more jobs there will be. Ultimately full unemployment would mean full employment.

  16. There’s also this little thing in unemployment called “lack of work.” So if you work on call, and there’s no work, you can collect unemployment. I know people who have been collecting unemployment every year since 1980 because of “lack of work.”

  17. Obama is a Doofus!
