Awful… Obama Makes Lying About Ohio Auto Jobs a Campaign Staple

You just knew this would happen…
Barack Obama took credit for the economy in Ohio in a trip to Toledo on Labor Day. And, he had the audacity to attack Governor Kasich while taking credit for the recent turnaround.
The Washington Post reported:

“John Kasich stood up there and told everybody that Ohio is now number one in the Midwest in job creation, fourth best in America — which got folks kind of confused, because if it’s all Obama’s fault and nothing is going right, what’s going on in Ohio?” the president asked a crowd at a Labor Day rally in Toledo. “Now, I guess the theory was that it’s all the Governor’s doing. But I think we need to refresh his memory — because a lot of those jobs are autoworker jobs like yours.

For the record… Governor Kasich was talking about jobs created in Ohio since January 2011, when he came into office. Since he took over the state he has created 122,300 jobs to make Ohio jobs growth 4th in the nation and 1st in the Midwest.

In fact, when President Obama explicitly said that “a lot of those jobs are autoworker jobs like yours” it was COMPLETELY untrue. And yet the president has the audacity to run ads on this falsehood.

The autoworker jobs (auto manufacturing and auto parts manufacturing) are NEGATIVE 3,200 since January 2011. In fact, they are down more than 16,000 jobs since the bottom dropped out on the industry in January 2009. How can an industry that is NEGATIVE 3200 jobs be a part of 122,300 new jobs in Ohio?
It just doesn’t work.

Here are the charts from the Bureau of Labor Statistics that shows the negative growth in autoworker jobs in Ohio.

Cranks can argue all they want about whether some jobs are still around in Ohio because of the bailout, or whether a structured bankruptcy would have kept them around anyway, but it’s absolutely impossible to say Ohio’s jobs comeback is due in any part to autoworker jobs. The fact is Ohio is growing across a number of sectors thanks to renewed confidence in how Ohio does business. In fact since Kasich took office Ohio eliminated its record-setting $8 billion budget shortfall while cutting taxes by more than $800 million, both S&P and Moody’s upgraded Ohio’s credit outlook.

Ohio’s economic turnaround has nothing to do with Obama or autoworker jobs. And, yet Barack Obama has repeated this lie several times.
Is it wrong to expect more from our president than blatant lies at campaign rallies?

    The Reform Governors Who Led the Way


    Credit Barack Obama for the revival of GOP fortunes. Voter backlash to the president’s liberal policies gave Republicans the House in 2010, but the more immediate effects were in the states. Of the 29 current Republican governors, 21 have taken office since 2010. Midterm voters also gave the GOP unified control of 26 state legislatures, providing their newly elected leaders the firepower to pursue their reform agendas.

    A crisis situation also provided opportunity. For all the talk of Washington rushing headlong toward a fiscal cliff, the states have already arrived there. Years of overspending and accounting gimmicks to paper over growing state pension and health costs have collided with the economic downturn and a sudden drop-off of federal stimulus funds.

    “The fiscal reality hit the states sooner, and hard, because—unlike Washington—they have to balance their budgets,” says Jonathan Williams, director of tax and fiscal policy at the American Legislative Exchange Council. “The problems were simply too big to ignore anymore, and it set the stage for reforms that not long ago weren’t even on the table.”

    Nowhere have the changes been more striking than in the budget and structural reforms enacted by Mr. Christie (who took office in 2010) and Mr. Walker (who hit the ground running in January 2011). Their high-profile wins over state legislatures and unions were the first signs of reformist Republican governors taking on the public entitlements that are crowding out more vital budget priorities.

    Mr. Walker’s singular achievement was limiting collective bargaining, which had given unions a lock on state spending. The end of union control has liberated local governments to use competitive bidding to reduce costs for public-school health-insurance plans, to rationalize state employment, and altogether to save taxpayers more than $1 billion annually and reduce property taxes.

    GOP Governors: Obama Is Killing The Economy — Except In My State!

    For example, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell boasted Tuesday night in his convention speech: “We’ve added 151,000 net new jobs. We’ve had nearly $1.4 billion in budget surpluses and we’ve done it by keeping regulation and litigation to a minimum, and we haven’t raised taxes!”

    in his own address to the convention Tuesday, Ohio Gov. John Kasich said: “But ladies and gentlemen, when over those last four years we had lost 400,000 jobs, in Ohio today we have grown new jobs by 122,000 — 120,000 families better off. But you know what? The wind is in our face — the president has given us headwinds.”

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a superstar of the convention after his victory in the state recall election, declared Tuesday night: “Like many places across the country, Wisconsin lost more than 100,000 jobs from 2008 to 2010. Unemployment during that time topped out at over 9%. But because of our reforms, Wisconsin has added thousands of new jobs and our unemployment rate is down from when I first took office.”

    Indeed, Walker himself was aware of this problem back in June, in a breakfast meeting with reporters — though he believed credit should rightly belong with the GOP governors:

    “If you look at not only Wisconsin, but a number of key swing states, there’s Republican governors in those states who have put in place aggressive policies that have helped turn the economy around,” he said. “And so, oddity of oddities, one of the beneficiaries of that might be the president.”


    He belongs in Hollywood where they condemn America and read from teleprompters.

    Bye Bye Bo, second job is waiting for you.

    Rush Limbaugh

    Limbaugh says he “just about threw up” during Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention (FREE audio).

    He couldn’t believe how out of touch the Obamas are – by their own admission – about how much ordinary Americans are suffering during this economic downturn, brought on through Obama’s own policies.

    Rush also chided conservatives who insist that “you can’t run a Reagan-style campaign in 2012.” On the contrary, said the radio host, the GOP should attack Obama’s record head on, just like Reagan did during his campaign against Jimmy Carter in 1980 (FREE audio).

    I post this because now Obamas are going on a even dimer road. They aren’t just lying about what Obama and Michelle have done, they are taking credit for things they haven’t, and by the way, they are downgrading America on Purpose.

    I would advise all Americans to see the movie: 2016.

    It explains what Obama is doing and why.

    Disgraceful… there they go again taking a victory lap for the policies put into play under the evil Bush regime.

    Lurch went on and on about this too, so we will more than likely be subjected to the Emperor taking a victory lap as well. Special Operators where are you? US Military how can you be silent on this? How can you not speak up on a regime that puts your lives at risk leaking intel then attacking anyone who does the same crying national security risk?

    This clown president and joke Congress take credit for any Bush policy that works(ed) but will jump without a second thought blaming Bush era policies when things don’t go their way.

    Hey Lurch the SEALs killed UBL. Show me any potus who would not have given the order to kill that SOB?! Your guy had to mull it over for a while and get a round of golf in!

    False Narrative No. 1: Romney would return us to the “same old” Bush policies that got us into this mess.

    This is a false narrative “two-fer,” because (a) Romney is not proposing to return us to President George W. Bush’s policies and (b) the Bush policies that Clinton complained of are not what got us into this mess.

    First Rebuttal: Romney would not return us to Bush’s policies. Bush used tax cuts to help us overcome the economic shock of 9/11. Romney is proposing comprehensive tax reform — eliminating deductions so tax rates can be lowered and the tax base can be broadened. Although the details are different, Romney’s general approach is identical to that proposed by President Obama’s own debt reduction commission — the commission that Obama has ignored.

    Second Rebuttal: The financial crisis was caused by the housing bubble, which was fueled by government pressure on banks to lend to the less creditworthy. No president was more responsible for the housing bubble than Bill Clinton. Investor’s Business Daily calls Clinton “the architect of the financial crisis,” and likened him to a “housing arsonist” now trying to pass himself off as a “heroic firefighter.” Obama likes to blame the financial crisis on deregulation. But the deregulation legislation in question was signed into law by Clinton, who also refused to regulate the complex financial instruments that helped transform the housing crisis into a financial crisis.

    Third Rebuttal: Obama rejects the pro-growth tax reform favored by Romney and by Obama’s own debt commission. Instead, he wants to raise taxes. But President Obama himself used to say that the “last thing you want to do is raise taxes” in a down economy. Bill Clinton used to say that too. And they were right: Ernst & Young estimates that Obama’s tax proposals will cost us 710,000 jobs and will reduce wages, investment and economic output.

    False Narrative No. 2: Romney, like Bush, would cut taxes only for the “rich.”

    Rebuttal: Romney’s comprehensive tax reform plan would result in an across-the-board 20 percent tax rate reduction for all taxpayers. Romney’s tax rate on the middle class would be the lowest since the Great Depression. The Bush tax cuts, by the way, were also across-the-board cuts for all taxpayers.

    and remember this:

    Isaac Hayes: “Obama Takes Credit For Bush’s Withdrawal”

    The conservative Republican pastor in Illinois writes: “On Friday, President Obama announced plans to have all U.S. troops out of Iraq by January 1. After nine years of service and sacrifice to our great nation and the Iraqi people, our brave men and women will be ‘home for the holidays.'”

    He continues his commentary: “In 2008, President Bush negotiated the Status-Of-Forces-Agreement (SOFA). The SOFA acknowledged that U.S. combat forces in Iraq were required to withdraw from Iraqi cities, villages and localities no later than June 30, and it called for a complete withdrawal of forces by Dec. 31, 2011. It is clear from the SOFA that our troops were set to come home by January 1, 2012: with or without Obama’s intervention. In fact, President Obama wanted to maintain a residual force to train Iraqi troops, but was unable to successfully negotiate legal immunity for American troops in Iraqi courts.”

    More commentary from Mr. Hayes: “So after suffering 4,800 of our service members killed in combat operations and more than 32,000 others wounded, Friday’s announcement should have been an American moment. Instead, in typical Obama-esque fashion, the president took credit for something he deserves no credit for. Friday was a chance for the president to show statesmanship by crediting Bush’s surge and timetable during his announcement to bring our troops home. For a president who never fails to remind us of the problems he ‘inherited’ from the previous administration, he has no problem taking credit for its successes.”

    Even throughout is 08 campaign blitz he remained true blaming Bush, as President George W. Bush remains silent and continues to give his time to our troops.

    Obama is one of the most shameful president in our history and his disrespect for President Bush is a DISGRACE.

    Reelect Obama and this Ohio business owner will not be left behind like the last time. AFTER the election of Obama in November 2008, businesses shed jobs to prepare for the disaster now known as Obama. Some of us stayed behind, in slow roll mode. But this time, with an unleashed Obama, I will have to find a safe haven. History tells what happens to a nation when its citizens chose someone like Obama of Roanoke. It isn’t just the politicians, its now ingrained in the innate character of our citizens.
