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.

    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
