Then why push the nation into unsustainable debt?
To say and do one thing, and then reverse the week after when there's no immediate need to further exploit the situation - that's change you can (dis)believe in.
So Obama, at which point in time over the last month were you lying? (Or wasn't lying?)
Obama lied, economy died - hundreds of thousands lost jobs. Obama didn't save a single job in - he made people lose their jobs by taking a bad situation, talking it down and finally making decisions to make it worse. But hey Democrat voters who lost their jobs, keep on drinking the cool-aid. Perhaps this time the phrase should finally ring a bell with a close to home meaning. The "tickle down" effect you completely misunderstood during the campaign and that the Obamunists have been selling you works perfectly well in reverse. Abuse the "rich" (or striving to become rich), stifle growth - and you assure unemployment and destitution.
Understand this, it's not a bad thing to build confidence, you do that by future looking statements and measures to build up the future towards success. Not by lying about the current state of the economy by the whim of the day just to get your radical agenda passed. Everyone noticed the "can't let a crisis be wasted" statement, and every investor with a dime in his pocket was horrified at the cynical political games played.
Obama Takes on Role of Confidence-Builder in Chief
President Obama is embracing a mantle of confidence-builder in chief. Whether he is meeting with his own economic advisers or worried business leaders, his message is meant to be calm and reassuring -- even in the wake of more bad economic news.
Obama will have another opportunity to assert his optimism after he meets Friday with Paul Volcker, the former Federal Reserve chairman who now guides the president's economic recovery advisory board. Volcker was preparing to brief Obama and his economic team on how the $787 billion stimulus package is working.
Speaking to a gathering of the nation's CEOs on Thursday, Obama defended his plans for pulling the economy out of a downward spiral, saying that his long-term view gives him reason to maintain optimism despite an uptick in unemployment and falling economic indicators.
You tell those CEOs, who I suspect that for some odd reason probably know a lot more about the state of the economy, it's future and the consequences of Obama's actions.
He must really think everyone is retarded.
I've never bought into these Malthusian, woe, Chicken Little, the earth is falling. I tend to be pretty optimistic," said Obama, once a long-shot candidate for the White House. "I wouldn't be here if I weren't pretty optimistic."
We must be lied to by our own ears - because since January 2007 all we've heard from the Obama team is chicken little. Until he won the lottery and got his wishes come true in September when the system collapsed.
The president boldly declared that the national crisis is "not as bad as we think" and that he has seen public opinion seesaw without logic.
"A smidgen of good news and suddenly everything is doing great. A little bit of bad news and 'Ooohh, we're down on the dumps,"' he said. "And I am obviously an object of this constantly varying assessment."
Whining about bearing the consequences of his action in the polls? As reckless as he is irresponsible - never admits his own doing. CHANGE!
