I applaud Obama for putting the focus on jobs but I also realize it is all smoke and mirrors. Read carefully what he says. When "Obama Says He’s Working to Create Jobs Without Congress’s Help", he is trying to say a few things:
- Obama cares and he’s working for the American people.
- The Congress is fumbling the ball and is not doing anything.
Despite having low approval ratings himself, Obama knows the Congress has historically low approval ratings. Some polls say Congress has a 9% rating, others say 13%. Never in our history of polling has Congressional approval rating been so low. Obama is going to make this a battle with Congress. Doing so, he can hide behind his record.
The truth is most of the problems were the result of policies enacted during the first two years of his administration when he was able to do whatever he wanted. He passed Obamacare which has been proven to stifle job creation. He passed a massive bailout scheme. Through the Department of Energy, we see policy failures such as Solyndra, 11 Solyndras, Finnish car company getting a US loan but not creating jobs in the US. With the help of Attorney General Holder, we had the scandal Fast and Furious.
Jobs created at the executive level are either going to be:
- US loans that have had very ittle success at generating long time employment
- Government regulators that stifle the private economy through taxes and innovation
By telling you he is going to create jobs unilaterally… do we trust his policies given what we know now? Nope.
The liberal media bias has done very little to expose the real reasons we are in an economic mess. A Gallup poll from 2010 asked Americans:
Do you have a positive or negative view of socialism?
Positive – 36%
Negative – 58%
Who are these 36% of people that believe socialism is positive?? And where did they get this idea? Well it gets brainwashed into our children by Liberals in the education system and Liberal in the media.
