Unreal!… Outgoing Labor Secretary Hilda Solis Blames Tea Party for Obama’s Record Unemployment Rate

Outgoing Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, who along with Barack Obama presided over the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression, spoke with FOX News Latino about her own miserable record.

Solis blamed the Tea Party for the Obama’s Administration’s record unemployment rate.
Sooper Mexican uncovered this from FOX News Latino:

Solis said her biggest disappointment as Secretary of Labor was that she wished she would of, “had the ability to really get more businesses to understand the importance of having confidence in the economy and hiring up more people,” and hoped business leaders would help more young people coming out of college with more emphasize internships and mentorships.

Solis also said that in many ways the Obama administration “did not get the kind of support we needed originally when he took office for the American Recovery Act funds” and blamed “a small group known as the tea party movement” for not engaging with the president and “hurting the American public, our economy, and the future of our country.”

These people are shameless.

    With an outlaw gang of Marxist thugs like Hilde, American businesses were NOT about to put money in the economy.

  • HAHAHAHAHAHA the audacity of such ignorance is mind numbing

    When the house of cards comes tumbling down, and it will, people who drink tea are in for the ride of their lives.

  • Sure she does, because King O and company want to turn us into Ameritopia, where soon we may be forced to sing songs like this:

    Welcome to duloc
    such a perfect town
    Here we have some rules let us lay them down
    Don’t make waves
    Stay in line
    and we’ll get on just fine

    Duloc is a perfect place
    Please keep off of the grass
    shine your shoes
    wipe your…face
    Duloc is

    Duloc is a perfect place!

    Glad to see her positions, like the one she took regarding Boeing in SC, did not have anything to do with her complate FAILURE as labor secretary.

  • Lim Lynn

    Traitor in Chief has been destroying small and medium businesses with more red tapes and less profit when union workers protest decrease producing more Twinkies. Thus, how can Traitor in Chief Record Unemployment Rate cause by Tea Party who wanted less tax, didn’t protest like Occupy Wall Street and around the world showing their anarchist.

  • OK, we all know this statement and others made by Obama and others are stupid. But remember, they make these ridiculous statements for consumption by Obama’s addle brained supporters. THEY believe all of it.

    Stop calling it unbelievable. It’s entirely believable she would do this.

    In fact, I’d be surprised if she didn’t.

  • Exile1981

    If you this comment wasn’t pre-approved and designed by the ministry of truth then you are so delusional. She said this because next week they will tie the tea partiers to the pro-2nd amendment group and start trying to make them all look evil so they can vilify and marginalize those groups.

  • Another open borders hack who believes in AZATLAN. Apparently the GOP does also. Just wait until “the fastest growing group” controls our government and politics.

  • JDR-Taq

    Meanwhile, 95% of so-called TEA Party Republicans have proven themselves to be, like Krispy Kreme Christie, sycophants of the Obama regime.

    The TEA Party congress-critters are playing the role. Like the guy at the Dunk Tank at the local carnival, shouting out insults, getting the crowd to hate him and want to dunk him. Just like FOXNews. Playing the role. Working for the same carnies.

    It’s sort of funny how these people deluded the lawn-chair-sitting, “Don’t Tread on Me” flag-flying, good, clean-living folks, by saying all the right things, by mentioning “constituition” and “freedom” in their speeches enough times.

    But not exactly surprising.

    No nation on Earth has ever been more deceivable than America, right now.

    They’re really good at what they’re doing, Economan.

    As evidenced by the daily news.

  • Rachelle

    Solis might be right; but for the Tea Party Obama’s record would be much, much worse.

  • Flintstone F.

    You know she’s right. Why didn’t business owners wave their magic wand and make more money appear in their accounts receivable? Why didn’t they just lift up the corner of the game board and whip out a $500 bill they stole from the bank when everyone was watching the other guy roll the dice?

    We have a serious problem in this country. Obama is not the first “affirmative action” moron pretending to be intelligent.

    So it was Bush’s fault for four years. Now it’s a small group known as the “tea party” who somehow wrested power away from the dictator in chief to screw it all up. I’ll bet they love dirty water, poisonous air and they chop down every tree they can find, with their assault rifles.

    Maybe she should move to Guam while it’s still afloat.

  • Flintstone F.


    You are exactly right. Crashing by design.

    If I want to improve my home with restoration I get a permit and knock out a wall in the kitchen to build a breakfast nook.

    If I want to fundamentally transform my home, I get an excavator and knock it completely off the foundation and start over.

    The difference is, if I do this to my home I have a plan for what will be there afterward. With the left and Obama, what comes next is a vague overview of their childish perceptions of how things should be. Keep in mind these people tend to think children have wisdom and truly think the world could just be tweaked here and there to square it all away.

  • Paddy

    Tea Parties came into existence as a consequence of Obama’s first 18 months in office. They had little influence until the mid-term elections. Conservatives and libertarians will not engage Obama or support his policies because they are ruinous.

  • JDR-Taq


    “The difference is, if I do this to my home I have a plan for what will be there afterward. With the left and Obama, what comes next is a vague overview of their childish perceptions of how things should be.”

    No, actually. Obama and his regime, puppets that they are — and though they have themselves no vision — just know that their World Government puppeteers DO have a plan, and that they don’t need to concern themselves with those details. They’re going to get their reward (as great as they imagine it will be, and exactly as opposite it will prove to be), if they just do as they are told. Soros, Ayers, Jarrett. Mao.

    The Obama family might just be sitting in the cell across from you in the camps. Just as emaciated and rib-cage-showing as you.

    They, and the leftist tools who troll this site, haven’t quite figured that out, yet.

    Hilda Solis, Just another water-carrier for Obama. She walks in goosestep to spread the Socialist/ Communist meme.

    So glad to know she is going; unfortunately the door will surely hit her in the ass on the way out because like the rest of the Progressives she will milk it to the very last second.

    I think she hails from CA, which is no surprise.

    “…to really get more businesses to understand the importance of having confidence in the economy and hiring up more people,”

    Wanna give business a reason to have confidence in our economy?

    Stop trying to “stimulate” it. Stop trying to increase an already onerous regulatory environment. Stop imposing more social burdens on business (aka Obamacare).


  • Barracuda

    Wow. These people have gotten so used to being able to push any BS they want and label it the truth that they aren’t even trying any more. So now a grassroots political movement for smaller government and lower taxes is responsible for the bad economy, instead of government policy? Uh-huh. Pull the other one.

  • Flintstone F.

    For the leftist “taxes” = “revenue”

    If you cut taxes, you cut revenue…you evil doer.

    They always say “tax cuts that aren’t paid for…”

    It’s a blatant manipulation of the language. I really can’t stand the Democratics.

  • big al

    to much rice and beans!!

  • A_Nonny_Mouse

    So let me understand: Ms. Solis says she wanted to “get more businesses to understand the importance of having confidence in the economy and hiring up more people”. ??? So, she thinks private businessmen are supposed to ignore whether or not they can make a profit, they should just (on her say-so) go out and hire, hire, HIRE!!!! and the economy will take off (even as all these little companies go out of business due to the new Obamacare rules), and everything will be fixed, ’cause the worldwide recession we’re in is just a problem with CONFIDENCE???

    What freaking planet do all these Washington nincompoops fall to Earth from?

    PS- the Tea Party movement “not engaging with the president”? Hunh? Tea Party people are private, individual citizens, with rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of association…, y’know, all that stuff in those dusty old documents that the Lib-Progs find so annoying. Pray tell, Dear Hilda, WTF are we supposed to “engage with the president” in regard to? He and his henchmen are working like demons trying to destroy whatever worthwhile that remains of our former beloved Republic. He and his cronies –who happen to include YOU, Dear Hilda– are trying to tax us into poverty, shame us into compliance, shut us up, and seize our weapons to boot. What’s this “engage” you think you want? [There are alternate definitions of “engage”, some with a decidedly militaristic meaning, that I think you need to be aware of, Dear Hilda…]

  • RepoUSA

    We’re supposed to have confidence in the economy and hire more people, while this idiot and her boss are throwing thousands of new regulations at us and passing obamacare, and raising our taxes because we don’t pay our fair share. [email protected] U! If the tea party was an impediment to you, I’m elated.

  • Glenn47

    I am pretty certain it wasn’t the Tea Party that shut down so much drilling and mining and sent our rigs over seas. Or shut down over 1000 auto dealerships without justice, costing thousands of jobs.
    Or used the oil spill and delaying the clean up to further their agenda by making it look worse.
    Or denying the pipeline.
    And the Tea Party had nothing to do with attacking small businesses and telling people, they didn’t build that. Or raising taxes or using the EPA to further attack all our industry.
    Or loaned out money to fake green companies as payback for donations. Again, costing jobs.
    Or running up our debt. Making it dangerous for anyone to hire people because of uncertainty.
    Or running up the price of oil, making it a hardship or those trying to get to work.
    Purposely sabotaging and over stepping every industry in America.
    Call me silly, but I am pretty sure the Tea Party didn’t sign the orders to do so.

    Every business Obama administration touches dies and she blames tea partiers? She me must be drunk on Barry”s kool-aid.

  • to understand this belief system, you have to understand where they come from – Marxism. Owebama and his crowd see business not from a capitalist point of view where the business owner is there simply and only to make a profit. Rather they believe business is there in an altruistic role to support government and help feed the masses. They expect businesses to take a loss for the good of all and for the sheer joy of being allowed by government to be in business.

  • L.E. Liesner

    This bunch of inept idiots running this administration will continue to blame whomever they want, as long as the “trained lap dog media” sides with them. They have one huge propaganda machine working for them.

  • Razorgirl

    You can’t have it both ways. Either the Tea Party is dead or it is having an impact.

  • thestorm

    Is there anything that they haven’t blamed the Tea Party and so called,”racist old white people,”on? No!! They have to use any card they can come up with. If they don’t have a card for it,they invent one. The last invented card was ,”war on women” to hide the true war on Religious Freedom. The sad thing is it works for them because the true racist,bigots and deceivers are on the left. Face it people,our nation has changed greatly,because the gov. allows illegals in from all nations with such radical views. It has worked for them.

    West Point center cites dangers of ‘far right’ in U.S.

    A West Point think tank has issued a paper warning America about “far right” groups such as the “anti-federalist” movement, which supports “civil activism, individual freedoms and self-government.”

    The report issued this week by the Combating Terrorism Center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., is titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”

    The center — part of the institution where men and women are molded into Army officers — posted the report Tuesday. It lumps limited government activists with three movements it identifies as “a racist/white supremacy movement, an anti-federalist movement and a fundamentalist movement.”

    The West Point center typically focuses reports on al Qaeda and other Islamic extremists attempting to gain power in Asia, the Middle East and Africa through violence.

    But its latest study turns inward and paints a broad brush of people it considers “far right.”

    It says anti-federalists “espouse strong convictions regarding the federal government, believing it to be corrupt and tyrannical, with a natural tendency to intrude on individuals’ civil and constitutional rights. Finally, they support civil activism, individual freedoms, and self government. Extremists in the anti-federalist movement direct most their violence against the federal government and its proxies in law enforcement.”

    The report also draws a link between the mainstream conservative movement and the violent “far right,” and describes liberals as “future oriented” and conservatives as living in the past.

    The real culprits in causing the high unemployment rates are those jobless people who continue to try to find work. If these selfish people would just stop seeking employment like many of their more patriotic brothers, then Obama and Solis would have tot be embarrassed by the jobless numbers because they would no longer be counted. Then Solis could claim “full” employment and the media could extol the greatness of the best President we have ever had.

    OCC and Federal Reserve Reach Agreement with HSBC to Provide $249 Million in Payments and Assistance
    What is Federal Reserve doing with HSBC?
    Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have reached agreements in principle with the Federal Reserve Board to pay $557 million in cash payments and other assistance to help mortgage borrowers.
    The Federal Reserve Board on Monday issued two consent Cease and Desist Orders against JPMorgan Chase & Co., New York, New York (JPMC), a registered bank holding company. The first order requires JPMC to take corrective action to continue ongoing enhancements to its risk-management program and its finance and internal audit functions, particularly in regard to JPMC’s Chief Investment Office (CIO). The Board’s order follows the disclosure of significant losses in a large synthetic credit portfolio that was managed by the CIO. The second order requires JPMC to take corrective action to enhance its program for compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act and other anti-money laundering requirements at JPMC’s various subsidiaries.

    GREAT POST!!!! BRAVO!!!!!!

  • Questionman

    Racist right is determined to destroy President Obama to save White America!

    I love being right! All these proved I was right! Anyone who Hates Barack Obama IS in fact a racist!

    Shocker we live in time where racists like you calling your fellow racists, bigots, extremists as “Patriot”

    People like you are ruining the word “Patriot” when you are nothing of the sort. Just a hateful cowardly racist, bigoted, extremist that hates having a minority sit in the oval office! THAT”S what makes you sick!

    It’s obvious you racists didn’t learn from your lost in the 2012 election, We didn’t vote for a party of racists who disgustingly claim that America’s biggest threat is not terrorists, it’s not Natural Disasters, it’s not tradgeies such as school shooting, It’s a Black man as President of the United States. YOU. MAKE. ME. SICK!

    Let me ask you something. When Bush/Bush Sr/Ragen was President were you that terrified of the government? If Obama is dictator then why did we just have a Presidential election? If Obama is a dictator then would he deal w/ all the filibuster and disruption from the GOP? The government is not out to get you for goodness sakes.

    Obama is not a dictator and there were already social programs before Obama became President.

    When the Stock market (which FELL 23.7% under Bush, but is UP 64.2% under Obama) falls to below 8,279….THAT would be an indication that Obama has been a “failure”….but I wouldn’t hold my breath if I were you!

    When we slide back into a recession. When the unemployment rate doubles, When he gets us into two wars and triples the national debt — in other words, when he starts looking like a Republican. When will Republicans finally see that Obama was re-elected because he isn’t the failure the right wing propaganda machines portrays him as?

    Has it not occurred to you that if 65% of Americans own US stocks, and you do NOT, that maybe YOU are the “great failure”? Just a thought!

    Now, Obama was elected president in 2008, and survived the second greatest economic calamity in our history. He’s been president for four years, and has done nothing comparable to what Hitler did in Germany. As you may recall, on 27 February 1933, the Reichstag building was set on fire. Göring blamed a communist plot. History, however, supports the argument that Hitler had some of his thugs burn the building.

    Is Barack Obama an “illegal”?
    No, he was born here. No evidence to the contrary.
    Is Barack Obama a coward?
    Yes, he can’t fight the GOP on anything. He’s a wimp.
    Is Barack Obama a racist?
    No. This one is just stupid.
    Does Barack Obama hate America?
    Why would he be president if he did?
    What role did voter fraud play in Obama’s re-election? What is the proof?
    None. No evidence of voter fraud for Democrats. Republicans are the ones doing voter fraud.
    Is Barack Obama an evil man?
    Is Barack Obama a traitor?
    How? Did he side with Al Queada? Hell no.
    Is Barack Obama an Anti-American?
    Why would he be president if he was?
    Is Barack Obama a “Urusper”?
    You mean usurper? No he was elected democratically.
    Is Barack Obama a Marxist?
    No, name one thing that he did that was Marxist.
    Is Barack Obama a communist?
    Is Barack Obama a Muslim?
    No, there is no evidence for that.
    Is Barack Obama’s birth certificate a fake?
    No. The only people who believe that are hysterical

    Barack Obama is the leader of America, not it’s enemy.
    He is NOT a narcissist, either

    What Mr. Obama did is not grounds for impeachment.

    the racist right call Obama a marxist, a socialist, a Communist, a muslim because they can’t call him a Ni@@er! That’s what they mean! They can’t stand having a black in office. that this the cold hard truth!

  • Arnonerik

    Dear Questionman .
    It seems that one mans “truth” is another man’s BS. I’m guessing you are a Black man because only a hyper-sensitive Black man wallowing in his victim-hood would see racism everywhere he looks. When you are a hammer everything you see looks like a nail. (I’m trying hard to be gracious with you but not doing to well).
