Obama: Hey, my “singular focus” is on jobs!

posted at 12:10 pm on August 5, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama has given a response to the jobs report this morning while speaking at the Washington Navy Yard.  I’ll bet most people have already guessed how the President sought to reassure Americans that “things will get better“:

“We are going to get through this. Things will get better. We’re going to get there together,” Obama told a crowd of veterans at the Washington Navy Yard Friday, where he was speaking about lowering unemployment among the nation’s veterans. Neither he nor any member of the administration commented after the Dow plunged over 500 points Thursday, and Obama avoided addressing the market crash directly.

“There is no doubt this has been a tumultuous year,” said Obama. “My singular focus is the American people. Getting the unemployed back on the job.”

First, it’s interesting that Obama didn’t attempt to sell the jobs report this morning as good news.  Wall Street wasn’t impressed by it; after yesterday’s selloff, the Dow Jones was off another 150 points by noon today.  European stocks had a 3-year drubbing this week as well.

But even Obama’s allies aren’t buying the “singular focus” line any longer. Arianna Huffington told Lawrence O’Donnell earlier this week that no one believes Obama when he claims that jobs are his highest priority, but rather think it’s one job in particular, emphasis mine:

But the point is that the most important number going into 2012 is going to be the unemployment number. And there is absolutely no prospect at the moment that would make us believe that unemployment number is going to be below nine percent. Now that is really the greatest fear for the White House. And of course Mitt Romney again and again is talking about the failure of the President to produce jobs, and he doesn’t have to tell us how he would have done it. He just has to point out to that failure. And when the President again and again talks about how, I mean, I went through and looked since 2009 how many times he has said, “Jobs priority number one,” “The sustained focus of this administration,” “The relentless focus of this administration,” “We’re pivoting to jobs.” Nobody believes it any more.

For all of this focus, Obama has yet to put forward his own plan to promote massive job growth, or any kind of private-sector growth at all. If that sounds familiar, it should; Obama failed to put forward any specific plan to deal with deficit reduction and the debt ceiling, and the only specific demand he made — tax hikes — would have stunted job growth. In fact, he’s still talking about tax hikes, which is a highly strange way to claim that job creation is one’s “singular focus.”

As long as Obama’s actual “singular” focus remains on expanding regulation and raising taxes, things won’t get better until he leaves office … hopefully in 2013.

Currently while the republicans are trying to fix the economy and put folks back to work in spite of Obama’s singular focus to bring about a Cloward/Piven destruction of our way of life (which in turn he would take credit for), at this time during Bushs’ second term, the dems were doing every thing they could to increase casualties in Iraq and make sure we lost the war (which in turn they would have blamed Bush for).

Short of a person being evil to the core or just plain stupid, I cannot see how a normal person can support the policies of the progressives in this country. Can someone, ANYONE explain how any rational person still supports this traitor?

“We are going to get through this. Things will get better. We’re going to get there together,”

Fallen on Hard Times – Jethro Tull

Fallen on hard times — but it feels good to know
that milk and honey’s just around the bend.
Running on bad lines — we’d better run as we go,
Tear up, tear up the overdraft again.

Oh, dear Prime Minister — it’s all such a mess.
Go right ahead and pull the rotten tooth.
Oh, Mr. President — you’ve been put to the test.
Come clean, for once, and hit us with the truth.

Looking for sunshine — oh but it’s black and it’s cold
Yet, you say that milk and honey’s just round the bend.
Giving us a hard time, my friends
handing us the same line again.

Fallen on hard times — and there’s nowhere to hide
Now they’ve re-possessed the Rolls Royce and the mink.

Turning on the peace sign — and it’s back to the wood.
Soon there will be raised a holy stink.

Somebody wake me. I’ve been sleeping too long.
Oh, I don’t have to take this lying down.
You can keep your promises. Shove `em where they belong.
Don’t ask me to the party — won’t be around.

How much you want to bet that the bump up was the Goldman Sachs intervening with Federal Reserve money. I noticed that it took a spike back up and since has started right back down again.

Might also be people stopping out of short positions having to buy stocks to cover them.

It’s completely normal right after a large sell off to watch it go up and down like a roller coaster.

There are many trying to make a quick buck off of what they see as a downward trend by shorting and then there are those who feel it’s bottomed out and start buying in.

Computerized buy programs. Don’t watch the Dow, watch the S&P 500. It broke through 1200 on the downside and now is trying to go back up. If it closes below 1200, you should see more selling because that area is a support area.

Open up oil and gas drilling and production and you will create 200,000 jobs almost instantly. Plus it will settle down the price of oil and calm Wall Street at the same time. The best part is that oil and gas (at least here in the Gulf of Mexico) is pretty much union free.

Kind of a Hobson’s choice. If he started doing the things we know would help and the economy/unemployment showed even slight signs of improvement, it would help him get re-elected. Is it better to hope he contimues to blindly wander in the jungle for the next 16 months and have him gone in 2012 or hope he makes moves toward a recovery so we have 16 months of something better before the elections?

I’m surprised Ed didn’t cover what the rest of the content and purpose of this speech to veterans was.

Obama was doing what I bet will be his modus operandi from here on out: Announcing he wants to give tax breaks to companies that hire vets.

Yes. He is going to suggest ways to spend money that he knows there is no way Republicans can be against and will garner him lots of support and votes.

O’s “singular focus” is jobs– government jobs or government-dependent jobs. His efforts re O-care are designed to push single-payer insurance and eventually to force health-providers to serve the State in a national health-care scheme.

..nappy, remember when all of those moon-struck, Koolaid drinkers were asking Bush to step aside. Here’s a remarkable piece of that persiflage form a HuffPo post back in 2008 (emphasis added to highlight the irony):

Bush is a lame duck president, no question about it. He has only a couple of months left, and has no serious sway with his party any more. The economic mess is something that requires new leadership, and it is of vital urgency that Bush gets out of the way.

Perhaps Bush could do one decent thing in his presidency: Resign, and walk away gracefully. His legacy can’t get any worse, and he may do himself a favor by putting the country in front of his ego. His sins will not be forgiven, but he will be remembered less harshly for the abomination his presidency has represented.

Two thoughts: (1) you could substitute Pantload for Bush and bring this sentiment current and (2) sure would love to have a conversation with this clown (the author) today.

MJZZZ on August 5, 2011 at 12:32 PM

And off the East Coast, off the California coast, and ANWR.
Not only would that create jobs for those drilling for oil, speculators would cut oil prices in half, making it cheaper for other people to drive to their jobs.

Then relax the permitting rules on refineries, and create more jobs turning oil into fuel and gasoline…

Then remove the EPA “rules” (never voted by Congress) limiting CO2 emissions from power plants, and watch the coal and gas companies boom…

But that would mean admitting that George W. Bush and Sarah Palin had it right…and EgObama can never admit that !!!

You are absolutely correct faraway. Obama’s Presidency is a historic failure. Failure to lead. Failure to tell the truth. Failure in the economy. Failure at creating jobs. Failure with “shovel ready” projects.

Obama has spent more money in 3 years than any president during their entire term (including FDR’s 12 year term and other presidents’ 8 year term).

Obama has created a historic debt that I, my children and my grandchildren will never forget.

Obama will always be remembered in history – as a FAILURE.

When Hillary was running for New York State Senator she promised one hundred thousand jobs for unemployed Up State New York workers. It didn’t happen. Why is it the Left Elite think they can say, “Create jobs” and the jobs will manifest out of thin air and if you call them on it they always blame some one. We the people realize that no government official is able to make a single job in the private sector but they continue to tell the lie hoping if they say it enough it too will manifest.

Barack Obama has had a laser-like focus on jobs… and watched as they burst into flame and died away under his policies.
