Quotes of the day

posted at 9:00 pm on July 6, 2012 by Allahpundit

President Obama, at his second campaign stop Friday following a dismal June jobs report, dropped a line from his speech in which he cited the faint job growth as a “step in the right direction.”

With the economy typically polling as the top issue in the 2012 race, Obama is now under heavy pressure to demonstrate a turnaround sometime between July and October. A cascade of weak jobs reports between now and then would not bode well for his chances, though the president so far has kept the edge over Romney in many battleground state polls.

***

No president since World War II has won re-election with a jobless rate over 7.4 percent, a figure the economy is now almost certain not to reach before November. The president is quickly running out of time to bring the jobless rate down with just four reports now remaining before the election. And Friday’s report took on added importance as it will help set impressions of the economic trend heading into the summer vacation season, when voters tend to tune out…

Obama’s approval rating on the economy—consistently rated the top issue for voters— has long been mired in dismal territory. Friday’s numbers are likely to freeze the current dynamic that doesn’t favor the White House, forcing the president to continue a harshly negative campaign seeking to frame Romney as unpalatable alternative through attacks on his business record and extensive wealth, including his money in overseas accounts…

“I don’t see where the growth is going to come from now until the election,” said Matt McDonald, a former Bush administration official now with consulting group Hamilton Place Strategies. “You have a massive European overhang and business leaders are very concerned not just with Europe, but with what is going to happen in the U.S.,” McDonald said. “I think it will continue to be a pretty rude intrusion into the president’s campaign on a monthly basis from now until the election”

***

Have voters “priced-in” bad economic news as they evaluate Pres Obama? Stubborn polling suggests answer may be yes.

***

I am not sure [today's jobs report] qualifies as a significant miss relative to the market’s expectations. Still, those expectations were quite low to begin with. These are certainly disappointing numbers as compared to what had seemed possible earlier in the year.

Before the January job numbers were released, I wrote that 150,000 jobs added per month would make Mr. Obama roughly break-even for re-election given his approval ratings at that time. Between the strong numbers in the first few months of the year and the weaker ones recently, almost exactly 150,000 jobs per month have been created so far in 2012.

However, Mr. Obama seems to have gotten the benefit of the doubt from voters. His approval ratings improved some early in the year, but have not yet declined much with recent jobs reports.

***

Steve Schmidt, the 2008 campaign manager for Senator John McCain’s presidential bid, said voter attitudes about the economy had solidified already and would not be much affected by new jobs numbers on Friday or the rest of the year.

“The shape of the playing field is largely set,” Mr. Schmidt said. “They believe it’s a very bad economy. They’re pessimistic and they’re anxious. The campaign that wins is the campaign best able to address the anxiety. It’s a comfort argument.”

So far, he added, polls show Mr. Obama making headway in swing states with his attacks on Mr. Romney’s priorities, his finances and his record at Bain…

“The arguments that campaigns put out in July and August are largely unheard by the people who will decide the election,” Mr. Schmidt said. “Both sides are putting down markers for the arguments they’ll make in the fall.”

The June numbers, then, will represent another test of Mr. Obama’s resiliency.

***

I am beginning to get the feeling that voters are shrugging their shoulders about politicians, no longer believing they can fix the economic problems. They’ve reset their expectations about how political leaders can change the dynamic. After watching basically no growth in real wages over the last decade, no real growth in private sector jobs and a stagnant unemployment rate, they don’t think that a president (or a governor, for that matter) can do much to change the situation.

They also feel that politicians making typical promises about how they are going to fix things are not realistic or to be trusted. The public seems increasingly to want to be told the truth and what to really expect. They don’t want to be sold some happy story with slogans and talking points, but instead given a real sense of where we are and what our future looks like. It seems that voters want to be included in the conversation, and asked to be part of the solution. And they think the leadership solution is a much more local one in their communities and neighborhoods.

This “reset” on the country’s economic and leadership outlook of what might be a new normal could actually benefit Obama to a small degree. If Romney tries to make too many grand promises about what he will do as president, he could be viewed as untrustworthy and a typical politician.

***

June 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.”…

June 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”…

June 2010: “As always, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

What happens when the reports of 36 months say the same thing…?

… It says his plans on destroying the economy are working perfectly.

A rational person by this point would have looked at the evidence of the results of his policies…

… and concluded that they are not working, and a different coarse is needed.

Show Some Ideology…. !
Just like some suggest you “show some money” if you want to impress a girl, on Fox Special Report today we had Krauthammer and the rest in agreement that Romney needs to “show some ideology.” The people are dead set against much of the idiocy that Obama has wrought; and Romney, they suggested, needs to to tap more strongly into that.
Further, it was general agreement that he needs to swing wider than making the election about just the economy. The economy is kind of a stale limited issue; there’s a wider more important issue, and that is the out of control govt. And there is no reason why Romney needs to hang his hat on an economic slowdown in order to gain victory. Stick to the bigger issue, and win regardless.

The only thing — the only thing– that is keeping Obama’s poll numbers from sinking to where they should be (oh, say, in the mid 30s) is the fact that he’s black. He got a boatload of white guilt voters in 2008; I will bet you dollars to donuts that these same fools are the ones who don’t want to tell a pollster that they will vote against Obama because, gee, they don’t want to be responsible for making the first black president “feel” like he’s been a failure and have him end up as both the first and the worst black president. One can only hope and pray that they instead decide not to vote at all. Then, if he loses, in their warped, tiny little minds it will be someone else’s vote that pushed Obama out and these tools, these easily manipulated mush brained mental midgets condemned to self-loathing by their inability to fend off the illogical precepts of political correctness liberal hogwash will be able to salvage some warped and wholly undeserved sense of self respect.

No president since World War II has won re-election with a jobless rate over 7.4 percent, a figure the economy is now almost certain not to reach before November.

Under the old time way of measuring unemployment, unemployment is now at least 15% and probably 20% and 150,000 additional jobs are needed each month just to tread water with population growth.

VorDaj on July 6, 2012 at 9:23 PM

The average of the Employment-Population Ratio over the term of George W. Bush’s Presidency (January 2001 to December 2008) was 62.7%.

The average of the Employment-Population Ratio over the term of Obama’s pResidency (January 2009 to present) is 58.7%.

June’s number, 58.6%, is BELOW that average, and the last time it was ABOVE that average was August 2009.

If Obama wants to take a step in the right direction, try getting the Employment-Population Ratio up. Even an increase of 0.2%, to 58.8% would be above average for him and would be a step in the right direction.

If the population aged 16 years and over is approximately 250 Million people, then each 1% of the Employment-Population Ratio represents about 2.5 Million jobs.

The average of the Employment-Population Ratio over the term of George W. Bush’s Presidency (January 2001 to December 2008) was 62.7%.

The average of the Employment-Population Ratio over the term of Obama’s pResidency (January 2009 to present) is 58.7%.

Those 4 percentage points equate to about 10 Million jobs.

The Obama administration would have to find a way to create 10 Million new jobs just to get back to the average level of employment under the Bush Presidency!

And if Obama wanted to get back to the level where the Employment-Population Ratio was when the balance of power in Washington, D.C. shifted from Republican to Democrat (back on January 3, 2007), he’ll need to create about 12 million new jobs.

Employment-Population Ratio December 2006 (last month of Republican House, Republican Senate, and Republican President): 63.4%.

Employment-Population Ratio June 2012: 58.6%

63.4% – 58.6% = 4.8%
4.8% times the approximate number of jobs per 1% (2.5 Million jobs per 1%) = 12 million jobs!

Democrats have held majority control (2+ out of 3 of the House, Senate, and Presidency) for FIVE and a HALF YEARS (since January 2007). That’s 66 months.

For the first half of the Democrat’s majority control, the 33 months from January 2007 – September 2009, they stalled the Bush Recovery, and then crashed it. The previously-increasing Employment-Population Ratio, which had been increasing since the second part of the Bush Tax Cuts kicked in, stalled under the Democrat majority in 2007 and then crashed in 2008 and 2009.

For the second half of the Democrat’s majority control, the 33 months from October 2009 – June 2012, they have created NO RECOVERY of the Employment-Population Ratio.

NO GROWTH at all over 33 months! June 2012′s number (58.6%) was LOWER than September 2009′s number (58.7%).

Voters aren’t ‘shrugging their shoulders’ over this election. From what I’m seeing out here in the real world ( as opposed to some wealthy insiders office or luxury home) is that people have largely made up their minds about this election. IF there are no major mistakes by either candidate I think that the outcome is a foregone conclusion.

That being said, a lot of people are being polite and saying that they find Obama likable enough, however, when they enter that polling booth, they will be voting in privacy and won’t be worried about anyone else’s opinion about how or why they are voting the way they choose to vote.

I think Romney is going to win and I don’t think its even going to be close. I haven’t seen this kind of determination and silence from the public about a presidential election in my lifetime. People feel like they were lied to and abused by the current administration and that goes for the Democrats and the Republicans. Obama promised so very much and he’s delivered so very little, particularly in prosperity and jobs.

I think the pundits and politicians have it wrong. This general quiet from the public isn’t a sign of resignation that politicians can’t fix what’s wrong… its that they are waiting for the opportunity to change the administration and give Romney a chance to make those changes. Giving up in a recession is not the answer, changing a failed administration IS.

………..Sorry, he is a despicable human being, and a WORTHLESS, failed hack.

Once again, nothing the Leftie SKANKHO Media loves more than someone that’s a loser in a Presidential campaign (and if they will HO by trashing other Republicans?…..

…..all the better. In that case you da best HO.

Heart attack. On the back of the bill little Bammie wrote, “next week Michelle will be by to review the calorie counts on your menu items”.

slickwillie2001 on July 6, 2012 at 10:03 PM

You know, given Frank’s occupation, you kind of have to think there must be pictures of little Bammie out there too. Why not?

slickwillie2001 on July 6, 2012 at 9:32 PM

Frank Marshall Davis is the real reason we haven’t seen Obama’s original birth certificate and/or why his mother, Stanley, married another black man, from Kenya, to cover for his communist father, Davis.

The resemblance between Obama and FMD is striking, and his mother, Stanley, did ask her parents in Hawaii to make sure that little Barry had weekly visits with FMD while she was whoring around in Indonesia.

That naked pictures of Stanley were found among FMD’s “collections”, only reinforces the nature of their relationship.

That said, if there were also such pictures of Bammie, and I wouldn’t doubt there were, I don’t think we need to see them. Frank Marshall Davis, whether Obama’s father or mentor or both, was a communist through and through, and an America and capitalism hater, which explains even more about Obama than does Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and the rest of his radical coterie.

June 2012: “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report and it is informative to consider each report in the context of other data that are becoming available.”…

June 2011: “Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.”…

June 2010: “As always, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report, positive or negative.”

THESE SOUNDBITES………should be devastating, except for one thing. Mitt is going to have to go HISTORIC to get people to ditch the first “black” President thingy.

How much would a Martinez bring to the electoral map?

Pawlenty would bring what?

Ryan would bring what?

Christie would bring what?

Jindal would bring what?

So did anybody read the letter Brad Pitt’s mom wrote to the local paper?

Bet the next family gathering will be very very interesting.

I think the pundits and politicians have it wrong. This general quiet from the public isn’t a sign of resignation that politicians can’t fix what’s wrong… its that they are waiting for the opportunity to change the administration and give Romney a chance to make those changes. Giving up in a recession is not the answer, changing a failed administration IS.

thatsafactjack on July 6, 2012 at 9:43 PM

I think you’re right. I’ve been saying for a while now with all the pundits comparing this election to 2004 that the real comparison is 1972 (Nixon v. McGovern) when the Left where so hopped up & cocky thinking they controlled the narrative because they spoke loud & forcefully but then the huge Silent Majority showed up at the voting booths. Landslide Nixon* and the Left was devastated — “How could Nixon have won? I don’t know any one who voted for him!” The Left is just about that isolated & absorbed in their own Obama fantasy land now as they were in their McGovern fantasy land then.

*I’m not saying it will be the 520 to 17 flogging that Nixon gave McGovern, but I definitely don’t think it is going to be “close” in either popular or EC votes — at least not close enough for the Chicago Mob to steal.

Voluntarily? No one turns off their a/c down here, unless it’s during the one month of winter that we have. If it goes out during the other 11 months, you go to a hotel.

I hope no one fell for the NYTimes ‘air conditioning redistribution nonsense’: NY Times: Should Rich Countries Redistribute Their Air-Condtioning To Poor Nations?…

slickwillie2001 on July 6, 2012 at 10:09 PM

After watching basically no growth in real wages over the last decade, no real growth in private sector jobs and a stagnant unemployment rate, they don’t think that a president (or a governor, for that matter) can do much to change the situation.

Oh, poppycock. After 3 1/2 years, voters are resigned to the fact that this president can’t fix anything. Do they know better and expect more? You betcha.
