Obamateurism of the Day

posted at 8:05 am on November 24, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

I’m going to revisit yesterday’s OOTD, because our commenters picked up on something I saw only after I’d posted it.  In Barack Obama’s response to Fox News about the wildly inflated Porkulus job numbers, he testily insisted that he was devoting himself to the creation of new jobs.  Well, devoting himself while devoting himself, actually (emphasis mine):

“The question now is, can we make sure we’re accelerating job growth? That’s my No. 1 job. Nobody’s been more disappointed than I have to see how high the unemployment rate has gotten. And I spend every waking hour, when I’m talking to my economic team, about how we are going to put people back to work.”

He spends every waking hour talking to his economic team?  No.  He spends every waking hour figuring out how to put people back to work?  No.  He spends those “waking hours” when he talks to his economic team … er … talking about economics.  That comes straight from the Department of Redundancy Department.

I’ll bet he spends every waking hour, when he’s talking to his political team, about how he’s going to put himself back into the White House, too.  Maybe next time he’ll actually do something.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at obamaisms@edmorrissey.com with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.

just as he remembers,bam its another long verbal train

can’t focus on one thing,case in point,Obama now has all

before he makes a decision!!!(Sarc)

I am no english major but that sentence is just bad english. I know they say “gotten” in the south and thats OK but when the ‘most intelligent president Evah” uses bad english it makes him look like the stupid fool that he is.

He should have said ‘Nobody’s been more disappointed than I have to see how high the unemployment rate has got.”

No wonder other world leaders laugh at him. Even the Japs know more about english than the One does. Just saying….

start campaigning against this idjit at the local level. Get involved NOW with local candidates for every level of state & local level. If you live in a 100% blue or red area, please consider sending $ to those of us that have a shot at un-seating a Dem (e.g. state Sen Robt Hurt has the best chance of unseating Dem Tom Perriello, 5th CD Va).

Start Date: Now. Like, Right Now.

Description: The Democratic Party seeks a wildly optimistic individual to oversee a national jobs-creation program. Jobs can be real, or not, so long as the public thinks the party is “doing something.” The National Jobs Creator will have at his disposal Congress to pass new “jobs legislation” (aka The It-Is-Not-Another-Stimulus Act of 2009).

I have a collection of unemployment related links from the last few days.

CNBC reports on their website that Bozo’s posse is going to “recalculate” the “saved or created” job numbers.

Obama says Dec. 3 summit will not create jobs but will examine how to accelerate hiring

1) Form a select committee of political plum appointees.

2) Have lots of meetings over fabulous lunches.

3) Put together a list of employers and invite them to a fabulous meal.

4) Threaten to harass any employer that doesn’t contribute lots of cash to Democrats.

5) Talk about how great you’re doing at creating and saving jobs.

Obowma did say during the primaries, he would meet with his enemy without preconditions.

dthorny on November 24, 2009 at 8:55 AM

So, taking this to its logical conclusion, when talking to his economics team, he’s spending every waking hour talking about job creation. So that implies that the hours he spends talking to his economics team can be divided into at least two categories, one of which is a “waking” hour. Now, if consciousness is the partitioning property, then there are only two possibilities: “waking” and “not waking”.

So what percentage of the time that he talks to his economics team is the BO08 not awake?

MCW on November 24, 2009 at 8:24 AM

In American English gotten, although occasionally criticized, is an alternative standard past participle in most senses, especially in the senses “to receive” or “to acquire”: I have gotten (or got) all that I ever hoped for.

mr.blacksheep on November 24, 2009 at 9:03 AM

Back in “the day,” ending a sentence with a preposition, as you did, would be much frowned upon, as well. Nowadays, it is readily accepted. A better sentence would have been “‘Nobody’s been more disappointed than I to see how high the unemployment rate has risen.” Note, no dangling participle and no argument over got/gotten. Interesting that no one has an issue with the “have,” which is unnecessary. Also, the “have” could arguably be said as incorrect, as it could be written as “have been.”

Silly me. Here I thought “is” and “become” were verbs, not prepositions.

I would argue that the “have” is probably unnecessary, but not incorrect, as: “Nobody has been more disappointed that I have been“.

Try as I might, I can’t see the dangling participle, but then again, I was educated in public schools.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, and I’m the Queen Mum. Give me a break. This man loses sleep over nothing. He’s spent more time traveling, bowing, pandering, and fudging jobs, saved, or created, than he’s devoted to any economy, or unemployment. The most he’s done, is keep doling out cash we don’t have for unemployment benefits. Which I realize is a necessity, but it wouldn’t have been, if he’d approached this entire crisis with some damn common sense.

It’s not like anyone didn’t try to tell him, or warn him. Now he’s made this mess, and expects everyone else to clean it up.

capejasmine on November 24, 2009 at 12:16 PM

I think he is trying to allay suspicions that he sleeps through the economic team’s meetings. He is announcing that, basically, he spends all his time in those meetings awake. That doesn’t mean that he is doing anything there, tho, just that he is awake.
