that is, if you call wrecking the economy and putting Americans OUT of work, mission accomplished.
EXCERPT: “WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will let his jobs council expire this week without renewing its charter, winding down one source of input from the business community even as unemployment remains stubbornly high. When Obama in January 2011 formed his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, unemployment was hovering above 9 percent. Two years president later, more than 12 million people in the U.S. are out of work. The unemployment rate has improved to 7.8 percent (BULLSHIT NUMBER), but both parties agree that’s still too high. (Who will Obama blame for THAT!?)
A provision in Obama’s executive order establishing the council says it sunsets on Thursday. A White House official said the president does not plan to extend it.”
A factoid NOT mentioned in the article is that there are about 48 MILLION Americans on food stamps, many who choose NOT to be, but are there because there are NO JOBS thanks to Obama, the EPA shutting down the coal industry, Cass Sunstein and 100,000 new regulations that stifle and kill businesses, high taxes, etc.
Perhaps the BEST sentence in the entire article sums up Obama’s leadership capabilities.
“Obama met with the council only a handful of times.”
And the LAST meeting was in February 2012. The Gunny figures that Obama preferred to remain on the campaign trail, as he has, since 2008.
In other words, this was just window dressing put up by an adminstration that doesn’t have a damn clue of how to lead, how to get shit done, or even to get the hell out of the way and let OTHERS take the lead. Obama sure does know HOW to go on expensive vacations, issue power-grabbing Executive Orders, bow to foreign leaders, go on Bash America tours, appease our enemies, and weaken the US Military.
OBAMA = EPIC AND TOTAL FAILURE
The U6 number is the REAL unemployment number and it REMAINS over 14% at 14.7%!
THIS JUST IN: “JOBLESS CLAIMS SHARPLY UP!” But when you read the article, this is the spin the Left puts on it:
“The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits last week stayed in a range consistent with job growth and incomes rose in December by the most in eight years, mildly positive signs for a still-fragile economy.”
Unemployment claims are UP but that means job growth? Shouldn’t it read, if job growth was HAPPENING, that unemployment claims are DOWN? But WTF, according to Nutsy Baloney, libkook from Marin, “unemployment checks stimulate the economy.” But then again, this is the same stupid libtard who said the USA is “losing 500 MILLION jobs a month,” in a country with a population of 360M.
