firstly his terrible policies and destructive ideology cant be hidden, math is math:White House Economic Report Hides Sharp Drop In Number of Working Americans…
Via Daily Caller:
White House officials are trying to downplay the growing political damage caused by a shrinking federal statistic: the percentage of working-age Americans who actually have jobs.
The increasingly visible statistic shows that roughly 11 million working-age Americans are being excluded from the nation’s formal tally of 13.75 million unemployed Americans.
Today’s 2012 Economic Report of the President attempts to bury the statistic in a 448-page blizzard of statistics, jargon and reassuring comparisons. “In the last 23 months, businesses have created 3.7 million jobs,” says the upbeat report, released at 4 p.m. on a Friday afternoon by the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.
Democrats are touting downward ticks of the formal unemployment rate to 8.3 percent, but Republicans are making an increased effort to highlight the painfully low employment participation rate.
the answer is he doesnt. he’s an ideologue. seeing his leftist agenda put in place will always be more important to him no matter how destructive it is.
Obama Perverts Ex-Im Bank into Competitor for Domestic Banks
John F. Di Leo
Acting without any legal authority, President Obama has overridden the federal charter of the Export-Import Bank, and turned it into a competitor for domestic loan business, in utter defiance of the law. More
Jobs: President Obama tells anyone who’ll listen that from dawn until dusk he’s focused on job creation. Apparently, no one in his administration listens, since day after day they keep making job-killing decisions.
In fact, when it comes to jobs, Obama’s policies are so bad that even his union pals are starting to notice.
The latest to take notice is the Communications Workers of America union. It reported last month that AT&T’s $39 billion bid for T-mobile would have brought 5,000 quality jobs back from overseas and created “as many as 96,000 additional quality jobs in the build-out of high-speed wireless broadband.”
Instead, AT&T this week decided to spike its acquisition plans after Obama’s Justice Department sued and his Federal Communications Commission came out against it, claiming the merger would result in higher consumer costs. Even if that risk were true, it’s cold comfort to all those who won’t get these jobs.
Then there’s Obama’s own decision to put the protection of environmentalist votes over the creation of tens of thousands of good jobs by delaying his Keystone XL pipeline decision until after the election.
Terry O’Sullivan, general president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America was astonishingly blunt in his response: “The administration chose to support environmentalists over jobs — job-killers win, American workers lose.”
And Obama’s attacks on the private jet industry caused International Association of Machinists President Tom Buffenbarger to take offense. “In this industry, a few misguided words can put at risk even the ever-so-modest recovery we have experienced.”
Meanwhile, Obama’s supposed focus on job creation has failed to penetrate the walls of the Environmental Protection Agency. New EPA air pollution rules, for example, will shutter three dozen power plants, putting all their employees out to pasture, with three dozen more plants at risk, according to a new AP analysis of the effects of the mandates. All this to produce air quality improvements that will provide negligible health benefits.
The list goes on. The medical device tax — tucked into ObamaCare — the net neutrality rule, the anti-drilling policies, and so on all get enacted without any apparent regard for the impact they’ve have on jobs.
Rather than spend all day thinking about job creation, Obama would do the country much better if he spent that time rooting out his own job-destroying policies.

as Obama travels about the country, speaking of the need for “shared sacrifice” and the need to increase taxes, he doesn’t say a word about the tsunami of new Obama regulations ranging from light bulbs to ozone pollution to painkillers to foreign travel to vending machines that is about to hit America. Their impact will be huge and do serious damage to our economy.
Obama’s regulatory tsunami began during his first month in office and has continued relentlessly since. Each week, new, more intrusive rules are rolled out, some through Executive Order, but many issued from federal agencies, often without any fanfare or publicity. In every month since his inauguration, President Obama has heaped regulations on unsuspecting Americans, non-profit organizations, large and small businesses.
You can argue that some of these new regulations are not destructive to our economy, but just look at the number of regulations. Their range, their grasp and their intrusiveness into American life is staggering. And to think, several thousand new pages of new regulatory guidelines and added bureaucracy are still being drafted by the Obama Administration as required by healthcare, recovery act, financial reform, small business and TARP legislation. These new regulations will be piled atop the Mt. Everest pile of regulations Obama has already produced.
How Dangerous Is Obama?
By James Lewis
It’s now quite clear that Obama is playing chicken with Israel on Iranian nukes. That is why Leon Panetta came out with a statement this week accusing Israel of planning to attack Iran. If that statement is true, it’s the worst kind of sabotage, undermining the advantages of surprise. If it’s false, it is intended to place Israel at the focus of Iranian rage. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
The goal of Obama’s nuclear brinkmanship is to drive Israel into making dangerous territorial compromises. This is a Carteresque policy: blame the victim, and arm her enemy
We are ruled by delusional saboteurs who will do anything to destroy our national security on behalf of their dream of international peace — which means international tyranny, of course.
