Obama: Are you better off than you were four years ago? I guess you’re not

posted at 4:08 pm on October 3, 2011 by Allahpundit

On the one hand, this is the worst thing an incumbent president can say, especially one who’s already struggling under the weight of comparisons to you-know-who.

On the other hand, what other answer could he give? If he sat there and tried to argue that things are improving, even Stephanopoulos might have busted out laughing. That’s how awful his political situation is right now. Like Biden talking about the economy, he’s forced to be brutally candid because even perfunctory optimistic spin would be derided as hopelessly out of touch. Better that he shows he’s in tune with the electorate’s mood, grim though it is, than cocoon himself in talking points.

The American people, he conceded, are “not better off” than they were four years ago.

“The unemployment rate is way too high,” he said of the 9 percent jobless rate, the highest in more than half a century…

Obama would not handicap the 2012 election, but objected to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s comments that he divided people more than united them. Republicans, he said, have stood in the way of working with him time and again to fix the economy.

“At every step of way, I have tried to get the Republican Party to work with me on the biggest crisis of our lifetime. And each time we’ve gotten ‘No,’” he said.

Follow the last link and read to the end and you’ll find that he’s “still working on” his assessment of gay marriage, a project that’s now well into its second decade. Here’s video of him from the same interview insisting that he’s the underdog next year. Hard to argue with that on the merits, especially with the country on the brink of a European-driven double-dip, but I can’t bring myself to believe that a liberal incumbent with the media on his side and a ginormous war chest could ever really be an underdog in America. Case in point: We all had a giggle yesterday at how his campaign’s drive to attract new donors drew only slightly more than half the number it was aiming for. Tee hee! Meanwhile, his third-quarter fundraising haul is expected to exceed $55 million, which actually represents a slow-ish period for him. Some underdog. Click the image to watch.

Hey hey ho ho.
Barack Obama’s got to go.

faraway on October 3, 2011 at 4:10 PM

I’ll reiterate what I said on the RCP thread. I actually am better off than I was 4 years ago(marginally). However I’m not better off than I was 2 years ago. My salary has remained stagnant while cost of living has increased. And a quarter of the department I work in has been laid off in the last few months.

Do I directly blame Barry for all of this? No. But I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the economy remains in the crapper and looks to be there for a long time thanks to his policies.

Doughboy on October 3, 2011 at 4:11 PM

Right. He tried to work with Republicans. That’s a good one..

Too Late Obamo

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/10/majority-expects-obama-to-lose-re-election/

Just 37 percent in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say they expect Obama to win re-election in November 2012; 55 percent instead expect the eventual Republican nominee to win. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos is asking the president about that result in an interview today.

William Amos on October 3, 2011 at 4:12 PM

He just wants to be in the GOP ads, too. Publicity hog.

Vashta.Nerada on October 3, 2011 at 4:13 PM

American citizens acted stupidly by voting in those Republicans.

Yes, if only this were China and he could do whatever he wanted.

January 2013 cannot come soon enough for me.

But November 2012 to January 2013 scares me thinking of what he’s going to do.

Obama: ‘I’m Used to Being an Underdog’

The president cites the economy for his low approval ratings.

Americans cite Obama for the low performance in the economy.

“At every step of way, I have tried to get the Republican Party to work with me on the biggest crisis of our lifetime. And each time we’ve gotten ‘No,’” he said.

Actually, I think the response the Republicans received from you Mr. President was “I won.”

President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.

catmman on October 3, 2011 at 4:17 PM

Just add “Even Obama knows he’s a failure. Vote Republican” at the end it and run it as a 2012 Presidential campaign advertisement.

forest on October 3, 2011 at 4:20 PM

Obama is just phoning it in now.

Will he not seek re-election? I don’t think Obama’s ego could take the lose.

However, Obama could get a lot of mileage out of America denying him a second term because “we are all a bunch of racists, and America was not ready for the enlightenment of a black President”.

Hmmmm.

Of course, we won’t mention his 0-98 senate trouncing of his first budget plan.

A more apt moniker may be, in best Vader voice possible, “The Congress of Noooooooooooooo!”

WR: “hey, they’re kicking our ass in the middle, if you’re gonna run, lets go off-tackle”
Obama: “They’ll never expect a run up the middle”
WR: “Dude, that’s the only play you’ve called in the entire game”
Obama: “Right. This time, they’ll think I’m gonna pass”
Whole front line: “C’mon, man! You’re whole career…nothing but ‘up the middle, they ain’t expectin’ it now!….bullshit…call a pass play, or I’m lettin’ my man by”

He’s used to being an “underdog”? Would that be when AA, leftist connections, and shady money got him into Harvard Law School? Or when his “guy in the neighborhood” Ayers got him a cushy job divying up a cool $50M and helped him write his book? Or when his buddies got his opponents kicked off the primary ballot so he could run unopposed? Or maybe it was when sealed court documents miraculously got unsealed in time for the general election? Or how about how the bottom suddenly dropped out of the stock market just in time for the presidential election?

I wish I could be an underdog like that!

The Labor Department’s inspector general says a $500 million program designed to train workers for green jobs has come up far short of its goals.

A report finds that only about 8,000 people participating in the program have actually found work so far. That’s just 10 percent of the target goal of placing 80,000 workers in careers in energy efficiency or renewable energy by 2013.

The report says agencies receiving grant money have expressed concerns that jobs have not materialized.

“At every step of way, I have tried to get the Republican Party to work with me on the biggest crisis of our lifetime. And each time we’ve gotten ‘No,’” he said.

When did libs try to work with Republicans? Republicans offered their own ideas time, and again and were turned out. Their ideas scrapped, shredded, ignored. You name it, libs did it. Now they hold a majority in the House only, and they’re obstructing? They’ve offered bills, budgets and the like and STILL get ignored. They’ve passed numerous bills only to be stalled by the libs. They’re trying Obama. Are you? Other than to say…it’s my way or the highway. And if you don’t go with me you’re an obstructionist?

You tell the CBC to quit whining. Maybe you should take some of your own advice. You’re far from being the underdog here, and you know it…but you just can’t resist being a drama queen. Michelle must get awfully sick of pandering to your crap.

I’m really tired of this sales pitch. The reason people aren’t working with him (note the Dems have finally started to “not work with him on the American Jobs Act) because his policies suck and his proposals are detrimental to to the economy.

Having to compromise with crappy proposals is like compromising with a like a little kid who asks his parents to spend their life savings to buy him a whole bunch of toys and when they say no, he says, “Work with me here, compromise and spend half your life savings!”

Parents: No!

Kid: A quarter of it!
