Finger pointing

After President Obama was caught playing tarmac theatrics with Gov. Jan Brewer, everyone accused Brewer of being a racist. (Though, if we’re playing identify politics, I’m not sure how a man storming off a plane with a thunderous expression, stomping over to a woman only to read her the riot act as she stands there with a handwritten note welcoming him to her state isn’t viewed as sexist.) The media would like for you to believe that the man-child Obama never thrust his finger in another’s face, but we know different!

    “He immediately took umbrage if you will, with my book that I wrote, ‘Scorpions for Breakfast.’ And was somewhat disgruntled, if you will, about the way he was portrayed. … I don’t know why he was surprised by my book. He evidently is, and he’s very thin-skinned.”

    She showed herself to be without class by shaking her finger at the president who the hell does she think she is? Its hurting her in the polls – people still want civility and also to show the President of the U.S. some respect. You people are off the charts when it comes to realizing just how disrespectful everyone has become – not just Jan Brewer – didnt you ever get chewed out by someone in authority – a teacher? a judge? What did you do, spit in their face? Is that what you teach your kids? No civility no class – thats Jan Brewer. Right after that meeting she wrote about in her book she had nothing but compliments for the President -then she write a book that detrimental for political points – she is the Scorpion not him.
    Why dont you write the good news today – jobless rate fell to 8.3 percent that is 23 straight months of growth – as opposed to the year before Obama came in where we lost 4 million jobs. They expected the biggest economic debacle since the Depression to go away in a year – we are growing and not Mitt Romney nor Newty can win. Think ahead to 2016 – which morally bankrupt or corporate lackey you can put up next time for a run – you have lost this one! We hope to take back the house as well. People dont like what the GOP is doing – and its showing in Obamas poll numbers – while all the GOP candidates are dropping in favorability.

      A month ago, we joked when we said that for Obama to get the unemployment rate to negative by election time, all he has to do is to crush the labor force participation rate to about 55%. Looks like the good folks at the BLS heard us: it appears that the people not in the labor force exploded by an unprecedented record 1.2 million. No, that’s not a typo: 1.2 million people dropped out of the labor force in one month!

      A new CBO report grabbed lots of headlines for projecting the deficit will top $1 trillion this year — making Obama the first president ever to pile up $1 trillion or more every year in office. That’s not great politics. But it’s not even the worst news contained in the CBO report. The unemployment number is.

      The CBO projects unemployment will rise, hitting 8.8 percent in the third quarter of the year, the heart of the campaign. That’s terrible politics. Obama advisers have told us repeatedly on background that if unemployment is above 8.5 percent in the final months of the campaign, it will be extremely hard, if not impossible, to win. The advisers say independents will not return to Obama if it looks like economic growth is anemic and uncertain and it looks like his policies did little, if anything, to create new jobs under his watch.

      Economists seem divided on the question of whether robust enough economic and job growth can happen in time for Obama to benefit. Some see signs of possibility in holiday sales and consumer spending in some parts of the country. Others see more of the same: a slow slog back. The CBO sees 2.2 percent growth in the quarter ending in September, essentially the same sluggish pace of a year earlier.

      To hear Democrats (and much of the media) tell it, President Barack Obama is a man on the rebound. The president turned in a strong State of the Union speech, picked a smart political fight over taxing the rich and authorized another heroic Navy SEAL mission in terrorist territory. Sounds like a recipe for reelection, they say.

      There is a big problem with this Pollyanna punditry: There are a bunch of real-time numbers coming in that tell a much different tale.

      The January jobs report is out and it seems pretty strong, at least superficially. The unemployment rate fell to 8.3 percent from 8.5 percent, the lowest rate since February 2009. And the economy added 243,000 jobs, the most since April 2011.

      But does anyone believe an “official” unemployment rate of 8.3 percent really gives an accurate picture of the U.S. labor market? Even though the unemployment rate fell, so did the labor force participation rate (as more Americans became discouraged and gave up looking for work).

    Seems your god has clay feet, Theou

    Your good news about the jobless rate is bunk as well. Why don’t you try thinking for yourself and do some actual research instead of spouting MSNBC talking points? You might actually surprise yourself and learn something

    White House spokesman Jay Carney today declared that President Barack Obama has full confidence in his controversial Attorney General Eric Holder, despite the controversy over the department’s “Operation Fast and Furious” international gun-running program.

    “He absolutely stands by the attorney general and thinks he’s doing an excellent job,” Carney said during a midday press conference Thursday.

    Carney also refused to answer questions about the new DOJ bribery scandal revealed by the Daily Caller late Wednesday evening.

    A Justice Department source told TheDC that Holder has delayed action on indictments related to a financial crime ring following the discovery that two of Holder’s prosecutors accepted cash bribes in the case.

    The highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law spoke out on Barack Obama saying, “Professors hated him because he was lazy, unqualified, never attended any of the faculty meetings.”
    Doug Ross reported this and more:

    I spent some time with the highest tenured faculty member at Chicago Law a few months back, and he did not have many nice things to say about “Barry.” Obama applied for a position as an adjunct and wasn’t even considered. A few weeks later the law school got a phone call from the Board of Trustees telling them to find him an office, put him on the payroll, and give him a class to teach. The Board told him he didn’t have to be a member of the faculty, but they needed to give him a temporary position. He was never a professor and was hardly an adjunct.
