Oh Brother… Obama Says He “Spends Every Waking Hour” Fighting For You (Video)


Obama’s fighting for you – on the golf course.

Today Barack Obama told supporters that he “spends every waking hours” fighting for you.


Obama Hasn’t Found An Hour For His Own Jobs Council In The Last Six Months:
“President Obama Is At Odds” With His Jobs Council And Has Not Met With The Council In Six Months. “President Barack Obama is at odds with some of his handpicked outside advisers on hot-button election topics such as regulations and corporate taxes. Many of the recommendations at issue stem from the president’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, a group of business and labor leaders with whom Mr. Obama hasn’t met in six months.” (Carol Lee and John McKinnon, “Jobs Council Is Sidelined As President Courts Voters,” The Wall Street Journal, 7/19/12)
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: “There’s No Specific Reason, Except The President Has Obviously Got A Lot On His Plate.” “‘There’s no specific reason, except the president has obviously got a lot on his plate, but he continues to solicit and receive advice from numerous folks outside the administration about the economy about ideas that he can act on with Congress or administratively to help the economy grow and help create jobs,’ Carney said in the White House’s first on-the-record response to a POLITICO story noting the hiatus.” (Josh Gerstein, “White House: Obama’s Plate Too Full For Jobs Council,” Politico, 7/18/12)

What’s President Obama Found Plenty Of Hours For? More Than 100 Fundraisers To Help His Re-Election Campaign:
President Obama Has Attended 106 Political Fundraisers Since The Last Meeting Of His Jobs Council. (National Journal’s “Daybook,” 7/18/12)

While President Obama Can’t Find A “Specific Reason” To Meet With His Jobs Council, Americans Are Struggling In The Obama Economy:
The U.S. Economy Continued Its “Slowdown” In The Third Quarter With Factory Activity Contracting And “New Claims For Jobless Aid Surging Last Week.” “The slowdown in the U.S. economy persisted early in the third quarter with factory activity in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic region contracting in July for a third straight month and new claims for jobless aid surging last week.” (Lucia Mutikani, “Data Shows Economy Mired In Weakness,”Reuters, 7/19/12)
CBS News: We Are Experiencing “The Worst Economic Recovery America Has Ever Had.” CBS’ SCOTT PELLEY: “Good evening. This is the worst economic recovery America has ever had. We’d been looking for hopeful signs, but today the chairman of the Federal Reserve threw a cold splash of reality on those hopes.” (“CBS Evening News,” 7/17/12)
“The American Job Machine Has Jammed” And Has Settled Into A “Summer Slump For The Third Year In A Row.” “The American job machine has jammed. Again. The economy added only 80,000 jobs in June, the government said Friday, erasing any doubt that the United States is in a summer slump for the third year in a row.” (Paul Wiseman, “US Economy Adds 80,000 Jobs In Another Weak Month,” The Associated Press, 7/7/12)
“The Weakest Job-Adding Quarter In Two Years…” CNBC’s JOHN HARWOOD: “Just 80,000 jobs added in the month of June, Michelle. 8.2% unemployment rate, unchanged, 12.7 million unemployed people, also unchanged. That makes the second quarter the weakest job-adding quarter in two years, an average of 75,000 jobs added in the second quarter of this year.” (CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” 7/6/12)

    Was that him at a ball game the other night, personally creating a job for the kiss-cam operator?

  • Sasja

    If he’s fighting for us, why is it that we are the ones getting beat up?

  • nelle

    I guess you could say fund-raising events save the jobs of lots of cooks, waitresses, caterers, florists, pilots, chauffers, valets, ice sculptors, lobster fishermen, etc. And he certainly puts in the hours on that.

    #9 stonedome- you pegged it, between naps and campaigning for a job he has proven he is totally incapable of, he uses those 2-1/2 minutes thinking about fighting for us.

    Really, who is the simpleton writing his speeches for him? But more importantly, who is the audience he is trying to reach with these powder puff one liners. It should be obvious to anyone that he is not doing anything for American citizens.

  • squeaky

    i don’t know about his waking hours, but these guys compare the time he spends on the economy to the average time one spends walking their dog.

  • Texas_Treeroach

    What a complete ass he is.

  • Benson II

    The problem with being upset because Obama hasn’t meant with his Jobs council is because if he had met with them he would have found some way to destroy more jobs.

    We’re trying to make a criticism that would apply to someone who actually cares about job. This is ridiculous. If anything we should be encouraging him to stay on the golf course, take more vacations and avoid all decision making until…………well forever.

    Trying to apply what would be normal criticism to a president means it would have to be a president who actually cares and would do something constructive. He doesn’t care he won’t do anything constructive.

    Heaven help us if Obama gets wind of this and decides to meet with his Jobs Council. We can only hope it’s just for show and he DOESN’T DO ANYTHING.

    Unbelieveable…Obama today gave a speech saying something like…We are not looking for handouts…. ( the same day the news of Obamas deals with MEXICO to push welfare /foodstamps on ILLEGALS )

    It wasnt enough to sell Mexican druglords guns that killed 300 people or more including 2 Americans.

    Obama and Holder should be in JAIL

  • l.barney

    Gee, I don’t think he’s “fighting” for me when he’s hanging out a fundraisers with George & Co. or yukking it up with “comedienne” wanda sykes. or golfing for the 1,0000th time, or jetting off to some far flung locale with Queen Michelle.. or even in Shanghai where he’ll be begging for cash while Hu has that smug condescending smirk on his face!

  • obfuscatenot

    He holds his “important” meetings on the golf course. Away from reports or records or any incrimination. Tony Soprano would approve.

  • bigkahuna

    Based on his results…. He doesnt know jack about creating jobs…. because he spends every waking our thinking about you and your jobs….Hahahaha….he could care less about your job…He parties more than Snoop Dog at the playboy mansion

  • bigkahuna

    Cant wait till those Offshore fundraisers take place…. They will be sending all those catering jobs and spending tax dollars overseas to raise funds OVERSEAS..as in OFF SHORE as in OUTSOURCING


    You have to admit this is the one thing he is good at. What a bs-ing blowhard. This is why the nwo elites picked this fool. Look at the idiots in the backround, just amazed at this guy. Everything continues on the decline, nothing is getting better and he is as cocky as ever. He is banking on massive voter fraud and massive voter ignorance. He knows something, that’s why he is so cocky.

    Yet another political commercial handed to Republicans on a silver platter. Alternate the “every waking hour fighting for you” clip with clips of him golfing, fundraising, hosting movie stars and musicians at the White House, attending basketball games, shooting hoops (poorly), and the myriad other things he wastes time doing.

    Obama spends every waking hour fighting for Obama, Obama’s re-election, and Obama’s entertainment… with maybe a little fundamental changing (read: destruction) of America squeezed in.

  • Noah

    Oh come one now. Obama does his best stinking on the golf course.. thats why he goes every few days so he can dream up new and vile ways of destroying our country.Well he doesn’t dream them up its sunstien,holdren and jarrett.SARC OFF.
    But he pretends he does on the golf course.

  • Noah

    All this is according to the One World Communist plan. Obama is a god in the deep dark evil blackness of some mens hearts.

    Reagan Praised Entrepreneurs into Recovery

    […]Now contrast President Reagan’s performance with President Obama’s recent attack on business. Instead of exhorting entrepreneurship, Obama demonized it. Here’s the money quote: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

    Obama does not understand that his government-centered model is doing vastly more harm than good. That’s why, three-and-a-half years in, he’s got slumping numbers on jobs, retail sales, manufacturing, and home sales, and a GDP rate that could be 1 percent or less. We may be on the front end of another recession without even going through a real recovery.

    Raising the tax on the upper-two income brackets would slam the 3.5 percent of small-business owners who generate 53 percent of the small-business income, according to the Joint Tax Committee. And that’s where the jobs are. Ernst & Young estimates a job loss of 710,000 if those upper tax brackets are raised. And when you combine all that with scheduled new taxes from Obamacare, you’re looking at substantially higher tax rates than anything Bill Clinton ever had. And of course, Clinton cut the capital-gains tax. But today’s Democrats want to raise it (along with taxes on dividends and estates).

    This whole assault on success by left-wing politicians is a staggering reversal from the spirit of Ronald Reagan. You can even go back to FDR: His big-government, tax-the-rich policies failed, but at least he preached that happy days were coming again.

    Most Democrats today don’t understand or recall the history of American economic success. That’s why this country desperately needs change in the White House and the Senate if we’re to stop this American economic decline.[…]

    I love this headline on Drudge Obama Ad Accuses Romney of ‘Launching a False Attack’ for Quoting Obama.

    It must be Bush’s fault.

  • sandy

    Rush said last Friday Obama finally told the truth about his intentions for this country. Now they are going to have to keep him tied to the teleprompter so that the truth never escapes his lips again.

    Barack Obama and Elizabeth Warren haven’t
    a clue about what it took to build America ….

    [This brings me to my point. I’d like Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama
    to explain to me how these manufacturing pioneers didn’t “build that”
    and how they didn’t do it on their own. It’s a puzzlement to me.


  • mg4us

    Obama Lies. . he knows nothing about economics. . .a failure at Harvard

  • I think they meant “he spends every waking hour working to take money from you.”

  • Mama Grizzly

    The jobs group was just for show.

    The O-Beast NEVER wanted to create jobs.

    He wants to destroy the American economy, create a HUGE underclass, then play on that to install a communist system of control. Mao is his hero. For his plan to succeed, he first has to bring America down.

    How’s he doin’?

  • Mama Grizzly

    #36 They say a picture paints a thousand words

    The O-Beast is not relaxing with his feet up. He grew up in Indonesia. Putting one’s SHOES up shows disrespect. He is disrespecting Netanyahu as he speaks. If he could get away with THROWING his shoes at him, he would. That’s what the photo is about. Disrespecting America and her allies. The O-Beast’s Moslem roots go deep on this. And in his mind he’s all the more empowered by being the son of MalcolmX. Never mind that he’s a lousy president, a liar, a cheat. He has a Mao complex, and it’s just that simple. And that terrifying.

  • Mama Grizzly

    Also: “fighting” for you? Who’s he fighting? EVERYONE ELSE in government not loyal to his “highness.” He has no respect for our system of government. I know that’s obvious, but he’s trying to create an idea that everyone but him is against the rest of us. A lot of people are going to buy that load.

    Solution: work hard for the Romney campaign.

  • dnb

    See he’s fighting as hard as he knows how to; the problem, he doesn’t know how to.

  • JR

    Here is Odoof’s tough tough work schedule for tomorrow:
    “No public schedule.”

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    The guy’s worse than a crap sandwich.

  • Chris

    He’s fighting for me alright. Fighting to take away every freedom I’ve ever had and fighting to try and make me rely on the government and bow down to them.

  • Yarrl Dliefsarb

    Personally, I am glad Zero is so lazy and stupid. With his malevolent attitude and disposition, his desire to destroy the U.S. is better blunted by his lack of effort and competence.

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear, I spend every waking minute fighting to swindle you!

    I have tried: Cash 4 Clunkers, Guns 4 Mexican Gangs, Lies for 0bamacare, Taxes for 0bamaCare, Cash 4 0bamaTax Waivers, Taxpayer Cash 4 Green Company hash, Crony Rewards 4 Green Company Bankruptcy, Photo Ops 4 Cash and the Republicans will not get aboard!

    Let me be clear, most people would say I have tried! I did not succeed in the “I tried” excuse business. I had help. David Axelrod’s spin corporation made it happen!

    Sure, I have almost bankrupted America but I not succeed on my own. I had NBC, CBS, CNN, NYT and the WaPo to help me succeed. David Axelrod screened all of their OP Ed’s for excuses on my behalf. It still was not enough!

    That is why I need four more years of sleazy cronyism and chity economic policies to completely wreck America. With your support I can do it! Please send me $30.00 before midnight!

    My campaign bus is over-heating and David Axelrod has a new scam to inflict upon my donkey donors. It involves a pay-to-play with Barney scam at the DNC Convention. I hope to skin my donors for all they are worth. They always vote for me so why not screw them? I cannot answer any more questions. Good day.

    You really hate the black man in office. What a racist scum.

    The hatred for this man just oozes out of the racist, like a rag that has been soaked in a bucket of water. When you take the rag out of the water it is heavy and dripping with water. Racists are the same way; they soak up hate and it just drips out of them, sometimes slowly and sometimes it gets rung out and hatred just flows out.

    So let him play golf. Cheaper than flying to some ranch with
    all his cronies at our expense like his predeceesor’s did!!!
    There has been criticism of the president’s vacation at this time.
    But how
    does the number of vacation days the president has
    spent compare to his
    predecessors? CBS Radio’s Mark Knoller
    has kept track of presidential vacations
    for years and supplied the data.

    So far, President Obama has taken 61 vacation days after 31 months
    in office.
    At this point in their presidencies, George W. Bush had spent
    180 days at his
    ranch where his staff often joined him for meetings.
    And Ronald Reagan had taken
    112 vacation days at his ranch.

    Among recent presidents, Bill Clinton took the least time off — 28 days.

    To be fair, a presidential vacation away from the White House is
    not the same
    as a vacation for the average person. The president is still
    in contact with his
    advisers and on call for any emergency

    You people accuse Obama of being a socialist (lie), a coommunist (lie) and Obama’s spending put another 5T dollars of debt on the books when most of it has nothing to do with anything Obama has done or passed. “Obama is destroying America!!!” (lie) “Obama is taking away my freedom!!!” (lie)

    Conservatives in Congress have engaged in record filibusters in the Senate, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner are on record to say nothing to help this country is getting passed until AFTER Nov. McConnells only goal during this most serious of times is to make sure Obama is a 1 term president. Not jobs, not improving the fundementals of the economy…

    Kool aid drinking????

    Look in the mirror conservatives….
