I submit that not only does the current unemployment rate have little if anything to do with the Obama administration or, for that matter, any Presidential administration, but steps being taken right now by the White House to adopt new technologies are likely to have massive positive impact on employment in the long term. We must acknowledge that the very nature and definition of employment has undergone a radical change in a short span of recent history. Unless you can devise some sort of pretzel-shaped logic that implicates Obama in the advent of the Internet - have at it with your aresenal of Al Gore witticisms - you might consider letting him off the hook on this, just a little bit.
What’s perhaps even more disturbing is that many of the factors that weighed down the economy three years ago continue to constrain growth today: Europe’s debt crisis, housing market troubles, government jobs cuts, and a hangover from the financial crisis.
Can an “Ineffective” President Control Unemployment?
In fact, if pure logic is to be considered, attributing the state of unemployment to this President essentially contradicts a key platform of his opponent:
“He’s been one of the most ineffective presidents at the job at hand that I’ve ever seen.” Romney said. “The number one issue he faced walking in the door was an economy in fast decline. He didn’t cause it, but he made things worse.”
Maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places, but I have yet to see anything resembling logic to back up the barrage of pure hatred being hurled at President Obama. I maintain that latent racism still fuels this blind rage. I’ve seen people who I’ve considered rational adults (I mean, they’re in their 40’s and 50’s) post things such as this masterpiece here on their Facebook accounts, proudly, along with eloquent comments such as “This is great!” This leaves me dumbfounded.
Somebody, please, throw me a bone here.
See, that’s sort of a dog reference there, which is the perfect seque into some choice excerpts from 1001 Reasons to Vote Against Barack Obama - Part V. Here we go:
7. After the mainstream media attacked Mitt Romney for taking his dog Seamus on vacation in a carrier strapped to the roof of his car, it turned out that Barack Obama once confessed to actually eating a dog.
Hey, if they’re making a joke, their delivery needs work, or maybe a laugh track would help. Unfortunately, this is being presented on a website called Conservative Daily News which is characteristically devoid of any real humor apart from its prevailing tone of condescension.
I’m begging someone, anyone, to help me understand what it is I’m missing here. I promise I’ll listen to your viewpoints, as long as you promise to leave God out of the conversation. Consider it a dare.
