Obama: Let me be clear, the economy’s not doing fine

posted at 4:41 pm on June 8, 2012 by Allahpundit

The week had to end this way. After they gave Cory Booker the “Cory who?” treatment for going off-message and then twisted Bill Clinton’s arm until he was willing to profess idiocy to get them off the hook, we now have The One finally forced to pooper-scoop himself.

You know it’s a five-alarm fire when the damage control can’t wait two days for Axelrod’s obligatory dreary appearance on the Sunday shows. Status of America’s pain: Felt.

“It’s absolutely clear the economy is not doing fine,” the president said while sitting alongside Philippines President Benigno Aquino in the Oval Office. “That’s the reason I had a press conference. That’s why I spent yesterday, the day before yesterday, this past week, this past month and this past year talking about how we can make the economy stronger. The economy is not doing fine. There are too many people out of work. The housing market is still weak, too many homes underwater and that’s precisely why I asked Congress to start taking some steps that can make a difference.”…

That said, the president said that there were many other problems with the economy, including small business owners have difficulties securing financing, and state and local governments laying off teachers, police officers and firefighters. That’s why, he said, he was pushing for his “Jobs Bill” that independent economists argue would create a million jobs…

The president said “what I’m interested in hearing from Congress and Mr. Romney is what steps are they willing to take right now that are going to make an actual difference. And so far what we’ve heard are additional tax cuts that the folks who are doing fine as opposed to taking steps that would actually help deal with the weaknesses in the economy and promote the economic growth that we’d all like to see.”

Republicans nationwide are dutifully rubbing his face in his mess this afternoon, first and foremost among them the man of the hour in Wisconsin, but here’s my favorite reaction. Remember how Team O made McCain choke in 2008 when he said the “fundamentals” of the economy were strong? Well, it’s payback time:

[F]ormer McCain aides, now, are relishing the moment.

“McCain was trying to calm people at a moment of real crisis — i think his intentions were good,” one former top aide said in an email. “Obama’s just trying to build support for raising taxes and make the case for his own stewardship.”

Another former McCain aide was blunter.

“We very much look forward watching Team Romney put Obama’s head in a vice over this,” he emailed “What goes around comes around, assholes.”

Words to live by, my friends. Here’s Boehner, with Cantor alongside him, tightening the vice a few hours ago. Exit question: Are we sure the public’s going to scoff at him for what he said about the private sector? Remember, there are a lot of idiots out there think adding 60,000 jobs a month is pretty darned impressive.

I remember that too. McCain did step in it, although if I recall correctly, didn’t he make that statement a few days BEFORE the Lehman collapse? Granted, we were still technically in a recession at that point and it was a dumb remark by McCain, but the financial crisis hadn’t hit us just yet.

Obama on the other hand made his dumb statement a week AFTER the horrible jobs report. He has no excuse for this blunder and he deserves to have his face rubbed in it for the next five months.

“The private sector is doing just fine.”
Call it a Freudian slip, showing his true feelings, that O thinks the private sector is doing fine enough, and he really doesn’t care about the private sector much, and if you consider his 1990s membership in the radical New Party, he indeed may wish there was no private sector at all.
It’s time for Romney to call a spade a spade, a socialist a socialist.

But isn’t this just more campaign material for Mitt Romney? He’s only been talking about jobs and the economy for the last year? Why not four years ago during the crisis? Why was he so busy talking about health care when he should have been talking about the economy and raising unemployment?

Let’s not get overconfident. Nevertheless Romney has the positive momentum at this point and the days of “O-BAM-A” being chanted by adoring crowds is a thing of the past.

If the economy is not doing fine, why did he say it was.

Why did he say the private sector is fine ?

He has NO intention of helping the private sector.

What’s going to happen if Obama’s campaign completely collapses? I know it’s been lightly speculated about recently. But I’m really beginning to wonder if he’s in the process of a total meltdown.

What happens if that is the case? Is there a possibility of free-for-all in the convention? Could he get pushed out by the power brokers? What, exactly, are the obligations of the delegates? Do they have the option of voting for someone else, even though they’re supposed to be committed to Obama?

I’m really trying to understand what I’m seeing here. It looks to me like Obama may be in the middle of an enormous flame-out. Do we want that? I get the feeling that this might not be such a good thing. Especially if it gets cast as a race issue. That’s the last thing we need in this country.

Anyone have any serious thoughts here? Am I jumping at shadows and getting too conspiratorial? Am I making too much of some stupid but otherwise relatively harmless gaffes?

When will he tell us he’s not a crook?

Steve Z on June 8, 2012 at 5:08 PM

Obama did not walk back his earlier statement. In fact, he stands by it and effectively doubles down.

His clarification is he of course thinks the economy is doing bad, and how could anyone think he thought or said otherwise.

He thinks the primary reasons for the bad economy are public sector layoffs and not enough public sector spending — like on infrastructure, we need more infrastructure, more, more, more.

IOW, the economy is doing badly, the public sector is doing badly, but the private sector is doing fine — except for those who had private sector jobs who are now unemployed, or something.

Bottom line, he is a socialist.

The socialist President does not really care about growing the private sector. He wants the government to tax more, spend more, employ more people, and create more government dependent jobs. That’s his plan for fixing the economy, the socialist model.

PerceptorII on June 8, 2012 at 5:11 PM

What a bad day for Obama. Not only does he look out of touch but then the only way to backtrack is to admit the economy really is bad. Is there anything worse than for a President seeking re-election to be forced (by himself, ironically) to admit that the economy is not doing fine?

The cool thing is that Team Mitt can use both statements against Obama. He can run ads making him look out of touch with the morning statement and he can run other ads of the “even President Obama admits the economy sucks” variety with the later statement. Win-Win.

JohnInCA on June 8, 2012 at 5:11 PM

I think you missed Stalingrad in this campaign cycle. The closest thing to such a battle happened a few days ago in Wisconsin.

It was complete. Hugh resources of wealth and material and people making sacrifices on both sides. And then there was the evil leader deserting his most loyal and excellent supporters to defeat and disgrace.

Sorry you missed it.

Because I get the impression “economy” means “government” to your dumb ass.

Your impression is correct. Distill what he said and that’s about it.

And that equivalence is every socialist’s goal and dream.

Keep hitting him where he reacts the most: on his vanity. It’ll bug his narcissistic Fisher-Price brain so much that he’ll end up pulling a Howard Dean during the debates with Romney.

He’ll go down in flames on live television and no MSM media can avoid to cover that.

I’m of the opinion that you keep hitting your enemy until they stop moving.

Let me be clear? Who has been preventing him from being clear? Why does he keep saying that? As far as I’m concerned that’s an admission of intentionally not being clear.

What does anyone expect Mr. Romney, who doesn’t currently hold public office, to do right now?

PerceptorII on June 8, 2012 at 5:11 PM

Not to mention a Congress where Democrats will not let any legitimate ideas coming out of the House to be debated. For example, jug-ears condemned Paul Ryan’s plan for debt reduction but I can’t help but notice that not a single Democrat has put up a plan for debt reduction beyond denomize the private sector and rich while demanding higher taxes for all.

“Let me be clear” is code for “Listen up you F*&^en idiots and try to comprehend this”
