Obama to Unveil Plans to Shore Up Economy

WASHINGTON — President Obama, calling the latest jobs report “positive news,” said Friday that he planned to unveil a “package of ideas” next week to shore up the flagging economy, and does not regret his administration’s decision to declare this season the “recovery summer.”positive we are stll under 10%???

Mr. Obama spoke from the White House Rose Garden hours after the latest jobs report showed unemployment had nudged up to 9.6 percent, even as private employers added 67,000 jobs in August. He tried to put a positive spin on the developments, noting that August was the eight consecutive month of private job growth, and that the numbers for July had been revised upward.

Both the June and July numbers on private job growth were revised Friday by the Labor Department. In July, growth in the private sector was revised up to 107,000 jobs from 71,000, and in June, 61,000 jobs were added instead of 31,000.

Mr. Obama did not offer specifics about what ideas he is considering, though he has said repeatedly that he wants to extend middle class tax cuts and promote new investment in clean energy.More kooky leftie waste and spending on things people won't buy

Once again, he called for Congress to pass a stalled bill that would offer tax breaks to small businesses and create a $30 billion loan program to encourage community banks to lend.Stupid is as stupid does. Small business needs business not credit to build debt while no one comes to buy what they sell or do. They want Obama care to go away. And they are scared to death of the tax increases planned by Obama. AssHat Clown.

“I will be addressing a broader package of ideas next week,” Mr. Obama said, taking the rare step of responding to a reporter’s shouted question. “We are confident that we are moving in the right direction but we want to keep this recovery moving stronger and accelerate the job growth that’s needed so desperately across the country.” the recovery is a failure dillweed.

Asked if he regretted calling this ‘’the recovery summer,” Mr. Obama said, “I don’t regret the notion that we are moving forward because of the steps we have taken,” adding that he would take more questions at a news conference scheduled for next Friday. If this was a recovery summer, winter will be much suckage

The unusual impromptu question-and-answer session — Mr. Obama usually slips quickly out of the Rose Garden after making such prepared statements — reflects the deep pressure the president is under to address the high unemployment rate as the midterm elections quickly approach.

After a week spent on foreign affairs, including an Oval Office address to announce the end of the combat mission in Iraq and a new round of Middle East peace talks, the president is pivoting to the economy, Americans’ primary concern. He will travel on Monday, Labor Day, to a union picnic in Milwaukee and will deliver a speech on the economy in Cleveland on Wednesday, followed by the news conference on Friday.he left right after to go to camp david for a four day rest. 4 days of work slap wore his ass out.

“There’s no quick fix for this recession,” Mr. Obama said Friday. “The hard truth is that it took years to create our current economic problems and it will take more time than any of us would like to repair the damage.”

He's not dumb. He knows most voters will end up deciding who to vote for based on a few slogans or soundbytes, so whether or not anything he says is true is really irrelevant.

If there was a poll I'd vote "all of the above."

The only thing either side can do at this point is play politics. Face it, Obama doesn't believe in the free market or he would understand that the public is the best motivator of economic growth, not the government. And every dollar you take out of public circulation is a dollar that isn't being spent in public circulation.

Obama thinks that the government is smarter when it comes to spending your money. Period. It's a philosophical difference he will never get over even in spite of the evidence to the contrary.

I can't wait until the Dems get pounded in November and then Obamacare is ruled unconstitutional the following year.....
