Quotes of the day

posted at 9:15 pm on June 4, 2011 by Allahpundit

“The last month has been a horror show for the U.S. economy, with economic data falling off a cliff, according to Mike Riddell, a fund manager at M&G Investments in London…

“‘US house prices have fallen by more than 5 percent year on year, pending home sales have collapsed and existing home sales disappointed, the trend of improving jobless claims has arrested, first quarter GDP wasn’t revised upwards by the 0.4 percent forecast, durables goods orders shrank, manufacturing surveys from Philadelphia Fed, Richmond Fed and Chicago Fed were all very disappointing.’

“‘And that’s just in the last week and a bit,’ said Riddell.”

***
“Today’s job figures are extremely bad news for the Obama administration, and as I noted in my last post, an electoral disaster for Barack Obama in November 2012 is now looking like a distinct possibility. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment has risen again to 9.1 percent, with private employers adding a mere 54,000 jobs in May. That’s up from 9 percent in April, and 8.8 percent in March…

“Years of profligate spending, massive bailouts and useless stimulus measures have made America poorer, not richer, and threaten the long-term economic foundations of this great country. President Obama’s big government experiment has been a dangerous failure, only further proof that the deadening hand of federal intervention is the last thing America needs at this time. The United States needs more economic freedom, less government regulation and spending, and lower taxes if it is to create jobs, wealth and prosperity, a message that seems to have been lost on the Obama presidency as it drives the United States towards the financial abyss.”

***
“During Friday’s visit to the plant in Toledo, Obama did not mention the grim jobs number that was released Friday. Rather, he talked of saving a ‘proud industry’ and ‘more than a million jobs.’…

“‘The prospect of economic growth getting up to a point and unemployment getting down to a point that is comfortable for an incumbent are declining by the month, and are now not very high at all,’ said William Galston, a policy adviser in the Clinton White House and a veteran of Democratic presidential campaigns.

“He added, ‘I hope there’s someone on the inner circle with the standing and the guts to tell the president that, if things continue the way they’re going, despite everything he’s done, he’s going to be in trouble.’”

***
“So let’s say [unemployment is] 9 percent in November 2012. That’s 15.4 percent higher than the day he took office. Let that sink in. That’s an awfully tough number to sidestep. The GOP ticket and a thousand surrogates will be on television constantly driving that number home, and why shouldn’t they? That’s about as heavy as campaign artillery gets. It’s a special gift to the GOP candidate both because it happens to be true and because given the American public’s general economic illiteracy, with enough repetition, millions of Americans will walk away from their televisions thinking that the unemployment rate is 15 percent!…

“Of the 19 states at or above the national [unemployment] average, 11 were Obama states in 2008. They include some states he’s not going to lose under any non-fantastical circumstances (Rhode Island, Connecticut), and others, notably California, that aren’t quite that certain a lock but are pretty close. But consider these cases: Michigan is at 10.2 percent. Mitt Romney has Michigan roots. Florida is at 10.8 percent. North Carolina, also 10.8 percent. Take those three away from Obama: poof, 60 electoral votes. (Ohio, somewhat surprisingly, is below the national average, at 8.6 percent, but that’s still a worrisome number and higher than when Obama took office.)…

“For my part, I think that at 8.5 percent or so, if we’re gaining at least 300,000 jobs a month by next fall, the president ought to be able to make a credible case that we’re finally headed in the right direction. But every bleak month like this one makes a hypothetical month like that one sound pretty far away—and there are only so many months left.”

***
“For eighty years we have defined the American dream as an owner occupied family home, preferably with a nice swathe of crabgrass-free lawn around it. The home mortgage was the centerpiece of a society of consumers based on debt-financed living. It was life on the installment plan. The latest downturn in the housing market is one more grim signal that in its current form, the American Dream is going the way of the dodo

“[S]omething has, I think, changed. Something big. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall. A social ideal has received an irrecoverable blow and the era of consuming our way to prosperity is drawing to a close. The country has maxed out its credit cards, and we are going to have to live within our means.

“This isn’t the first time the American Dream has died. The old dream — your own farm rather than your own home — once dominated American culture, politics and family life as much as the family home ever did. The slow and painful death of that dream was one of the country’s core preoccupations in the first half of the twentieth century. The death of the new dream is likely to be a big deal as well.”

My loan officer said that it was wise not to get a re-appraisal. My house would be worth less then what I paid for it.

“[S]omething has, I think, changed. Something big. Humpty Dumpty has fallen off the wall…”

Why is anyone surprised…?

Obowma and the Democrats put into place social engineering economic policies based upon a Marxist/Socialist ideology that has never worked every time they have been tried throughout human history…

… It’s fine if your are a union goon who’s job is propped up by tax payer’s money or a bureaucrat who is grossly over paid for a job you never do.

But for the rest of us that live in the real world, we have to actually produce a service that people will want and will pay for…

… This is not a debate in a classroom full of liberals to see who can redistribute income faster than the next, our current economic nightmare is the actual implementation of this failed ideology, and when called on it, it’s the fault of those who point out the failure.

Obowma’s and the Democrat’s policies have failed because they are based on a FAILED IDEOLOGY…!

No spin, no “60 Minutes” interview with soft light and easy questions, no cover of Newsweek for the 1,000th time will change that…

THAT is the message that needs to be shouted from every corning of this country…

… and will be the message that wins the 2012 election!

If unemployment is at 8.5%, he’s not getting reelected. That’s nearly a point higher than when he took office. That’s inexcusable after all the money he’s spent and all the empty promises he’s made.

BTW, the economic nightmare has officially hit my employer, HISD(Houston Independent School District for the layperson). We’re facing massive layoffs and the folks in my department have to reinterview for our jobs on Monday. 11 of us are currently there and only 8 will be brought back. That’s a 27% cut in our area alone.

Hey…Republican candidates…wake up! We can not win back the White House by playing patty-cake with Obama.

The whole federal government must shrink for us to return to a free society.

When you have a government with the funding to fine a family in MO $90K (that’t right, $90,000) for selling rabbits without a license (what makes that INTERSTATE commerce?), or to pay a USDA agent to track down magicians and license their rabbits, you have a government that has run amok and is out of control.

My wife spoke with a restaurant owner yesterday about their hiring of teenagers. This owner won’t hire very many young people because there are so few things they are allowed to do — Under 18 and they can’t run the machinery, so it really restricts who they hire. Not only does that lead to not giving kids a chance to start learning responsibility, it limits the options for those young people to start earning college money.

The economy is going to get much worse and it’s not going to improve when a Republican takes over. Now that we know the potential of the electorate of putting the likes of Obama in charge, why would anyone take any risks during the next presidency when another Obama could take over again in 4 years?

We also need to admit that we cannot justify jobs for all the manual laborers in this country because manufacturing jobs can’t be justified at livable US wages. We employ a billion Chinese workers who work for pennies.

The good economies of Clinton and Bush were charades based on bubbles. If the economy does start to improve, look for the new bubble being inflated.

Right. Dean also says that if he were a Republican, Palin wouldn’t be his choice and that other Republicans are better positioned to beat Obama in his opinion but the economy is bad enough that even Palin can. Anyone trying to spin this as Dean hoping Palin wins the nomination because she is weak didn’t read the piece.

They have convinced people that it’s bad to “change horses in mid stream.” Plus one more thing. The Prancing Prince of Illinois has another ace up his sleeve.

The MSM is making everyone feel that recovery is just around the corner.

I agree with you. My father-in-law is an MBA and makes a great salary with a Fortune 500 company that he has been with for over 35 years. However, all he reads is the NYT. According to him Obama has already fixed the economy and things are going swimmingly and anyone who says otherwise is a racist. Brainwashing mission accomplished.

Double dip, double dip, double dip.

And that’s just the people who claim to be so much smarter than the rest of us.

The economy our liberal geniuses have shafted us with is actually much worse.

Remember when Uncle Walty Cronkhite used to host “The Big Picture?”
When I was a kid I thought he was cool. Time changes all.

Oh well! I’d better get used to Australia being China’s mine and quarry then.

Crux Australis on June 4, 2011 at 11:00 PM

it seems to me that this quote pretty much sums up barry.

“There are always going to be bumps on the road to recovery,” Obama said. “We’re going to pass through some rough terrain that even a Wrangler would have a hard time with … ”

“No, no!” some of the Wrangler builders cried out.

Obama joked: “A Wrangler can go over anything, huh?”

The last part shows what a sarcastic little sob he is. After thanking himself for rescuing the company he mocks the worker’s pride…#SOB

And the first part either says 1. I’ve seen the data and boy you haven’t seen the worst part of it yet…or 2. I have no efing clue what to do or say…so I’ll just try to sound like someone with a vision…#FAIL

this pos is suppose to “sound presidential” #we’re screwed
