Will someone ask Obama: What about those people who are not in the unionized education or construction fields? The only jobs the President seems concerned about are those for his supporters.
(CNSNews.com) – Speaking at Loudon County High School on Thursday night, President Barack Obama summed up the economic situation in America by telling the crowd: “Nobody is satisfied.”
Explaining his vision of job creation, Obama said that if the country hired new teachers those new teachers could go to restaurants and spend money.
“Look, nobody is satisfied with our pace of growth,” Obama said Thursday in Leesburg, Va. “Nobody is satisfied.”
While mentioning “all the jobs” created by his administration, Obama said it was nonetheless necessary to create more jobs by, for example, getting more money to construction workers and hiring more teachers.
If construction workers had more money, they might buy new cars, the president said. If we had new teachers, they could go out to restaurants and eat.
If Obama wasn’t president, we ALL would be able to eat out more often.
“Even with all the jobs we’ve created, we’ve got to create more,” said Obama. “But if you look at our history, if you look at the facts, every time we’ve grown, it hasn’t been by the top down. It’s been from the middle out. It’s been from the bottom up.
What jobs? There are less employed Americans since Obama took office. He has produce a negative jobs deficit.
“When middle-class families are doing well, lo and behold, everybody does well,” said Obama. “If that construction worker has got a little extra money in his pocket, he goes and spends it maybe on a new car. When we’ve got new teachers doing great work with our kids, then you know what, they go to a restaurant and spend that money. And so suddenly businesses are doing well, the economy is doing well, and we get into a virtuous cycle. And we go up.”
Why didn’t his stimulus work? Where’s that “summer of recovery?” Where’s that promised 6.5% unemployment rate?
