Romney adviser: You “need time-lapse photography” to see the growth in the economy

posted at 6:01 pm on June 11, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

As various Democrats have made plain, they’re gettin’ real sick n’ tired of us darn conservatives manufacturing a big to-do about President Obama’s “the private sector is doing just fine” remark during his press conference last Friday, so enough already! Mitt Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom had his work cut out for him, however, as MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell tried to dismiss Republicans for making such a big deal out of this on her show earlier this afternoon:

“I don’t know what he meant. I only know what he said. He said the private sector is doing fine. That’s not the case; not when GDP growth has been revised downward in the first quarter to 1.9 percent. I mean, you need time-lapse photography to detect any movement at all in this slow-growing economy. I think the big problem here, Andrea, is that the first rule of a turn-around is to recognize the magnitude of the problem you’re facing, but if the president thinks the private sector is doing fine, as he says, then he’s not going to take the steps necessary to lead a real economic recovery. …

Mitt Romney respects the job that teachers do, and firefighters and policemen. But it was just a month ago that President Obama was bragging about the fact that he has shrunk government employment. Now he’s suggesting that increasing the levels of government employment is going to lead us out of the economic problems that we’re having. If he truly believes that, and I’m not sure what he believes because he’s given conflicting messages on it, but if he does believe it, then we two very different visions between the president and Mitt Romney about how you get this economy going again. Barack Obama apparently feels you raise taxes, you borrow money, you give those funds to local governments and let them increase the level of public employment. He thinks that will create a robust recovery. Mitt Romney believes that the way to create the recovery is to unleash the power of the private sector, to empower our entrepreneurs and innovators, and the way you do that by reducing regulation, by keeping taxes low, by encouraging free trade, pursuing energy development, and making America the most attractive place in the world for investment and job creation.”

Forgive the compulsion, but I need to take Andrea Mitchell to task a little on this one. Uhm, no, I don’t know what the president ostensibly “meant” with his comment, I only know that he was proposing we spend more government (a.k.a. taxpayer) money so that states and localities can hire more cops and teachers, which is a poor excuse for a jobs plan.

As far as forgiving people for “misspeaking,” I really don’t think Obama’s private-sector remark and the Romney camp’s “etch-a-sketch” remark are comparable. Good for you for not making a big deal of the “etch-a-sketch” comment, because there were and are larger issues; but as to there being larger issues in regards to Obama’s remark? No. The economy is kind of the whole point in this debate, and the president’s comment is a reflection of what he really believes about how to get the economy moving again. He doesn’t have much faith in the private sector as an engine for growth; he has much more faith in government stimulus.

Fehrnstrom handled that one like a champ.

Since his gaffe, Obama himself hasn’t said anything different. He’s sticking with his ‘Stimulus for the Public Sector’ mantra. We know he didn’t mean anything different than what he really said.

It’s kind of pathetic that Obama can’t spin this well enough so his mommy Andrea is having to do it for him.

Interesting how Andrea Mitchell attempts to stop the Choomster-in-Chief from continuing to get pasted over this, just as Rush points out that TIME Magazine’s Mark Halperin wants a truce on gaffes. (Of course, Choomie was just speaking his mind, not committing a gaffe.) Guess the libs put this on their talking points memo over the weekend.

Problem for the Lame Stream Media is, its efforts here are like trying to put out the fire over this with gasoline, as they bring even more attention to this issue. Their squealing proves convincingly that the conservatives have indeed hit a nerve. I must say, it is darn fun to watch. May the hammering continue, and pass the popcorn!

OneVision on June 11, 2012 at 6:33 PM

Uhm, no, I don’t know what the president ostensibly “meant” with his comment

I do. “At some point you’ve made enough money” and the Indonesian Dog-Eater thinks that the private sector made enough money long ago. He hates the private sector and considers every private sector job to be at the expense of a more important government waste job – well … so far as his pea-brain is capable of understanding anything involving numbers greater than 20.

A cochlear implant was the solution for Limbaugh, who reportedly can hear his program with it. He needed one because one ear was totally deaf, and the other one was nearly so.As someone who had already experienced hearing, he was a good implant candidate. The implant in his left ear restored some hearing, but the right ear is still deaf.

renalin on June 11, 2012 at 6:58 PM

She’s not clarifying what Obama meant, she’s rewriting him. He clearly said, the private sector is fine, he even cited job creation stats to support his assertion and went on to say that the weakness was in the public sector… further suggesting there was no weakness in the private sector. And they keep saying he walked this back. He didn’t. He “clarified” by saying it was clear the “economy” wasn’t fine, which doesn’t contradict his so-called gaffe. If anything, his reluctance to admit to problems in private sector shows he still believes the private sector is fine and we just need more government employees.

The truth: he needs more government employees so union dues can be taken out of their paychecks and sent to his campaign. That was the lesson he took from Wisconsin.

Heywood U. Reedmore on June 11, 2012 at 7:00 PM

Why doesn’t she have her husband little Al on her show and he can explain to the noobs how great the economy is doing.

RickB on June 11, 2012 at 7:01 PM

This may have been said already but I only skimmed the comments.

This was a gaffe by Obama not because he misspoke or because he said something out of context. He said something that he truly believes but that he doesn’t want widely known. And it gives a window into his worldview – even more so than his Joe the Plumber “redistribution” comment in 2008. Gov’t, and gov’t workers are the answer. Makes sense I guess if you’ve never created a private sector job in your life.

Romney’s rebuttal has been good but I’d suggest he tweak one thing. He said something about how Obama wants more policeman, firemen and teachers to drive economic growth and by contrast Romney wants entrepreneurs. I agree with Romney’s general message but instead of railing against “policeman, firemen & teachers” (who are generally sympathetic to independent voters) he should say how Obama thinks “more bureaucrats & red tape” will generate economic growth.

Dude/Ma’am, please make note of the correction I’m making for you here.

Rmoney™s peeps look like Mittler youth.

Somebody should pull a rerun of when Andrea Mitchell played Jeopardy. One of the dumbest people ever to play the game.

“Andrea Mitchell, NBC News”

You all heard Rush Limbaugh’s voice just now, didn’t you?

Thank you WP. As I’m sure most here will remember, I was a Gingrich supporter up until the day he pulled out of the primaries. Even now you won’t see me being a rah rah cheerleader for Romney, because quite honestly, I too have questions about how he will execute his office when elected.

But, the die has been cast, the players of the game decided, and I have to accept that, even if I’m not ecstatic about the outcome.

In a frame on my desk there’s a picture of 13 reasons why I won’t gamble with the possibility of the boy king getting another term.

The names of those reasons are, Garrett, Preston, Lessie Marie, Alexander, Thomas, Tyler, Brianna, Samuel, Abbi Lynn, Kylie Sue, Madison and Anthony.

AKA my grandchildren.
