Obama: The Zero Jobs President

"Real leadership doesn’t inherit a bad economy.
It fixes it." ~ Newt Gingrich
Bill Smith, Editor: President Obama and his new jobs-economics czar maybe working on the upcoming speech on jobs, but today's job numbers show that  the economy continues to suck as a result of the Obama administration's actions which have "terrorized" private sector job growth.  With the August jobs report in,  we can now call Obama "the Zero Jobs President ."  He has taken the most robust economy in the world and brought employment to a standstill.

Reporting on today’s disappointing jobs numbers, Reuters writes, “U.S. employment growth ground to a halt in August as sagging confidence discouraged already skittish businesses from hiring, keeping pressure on the Federal Reserve to provide more stimulus to aid the economy. Nonfarm payrolls were unchanged, the Labor Department said on Friday, the weakest reading since September. Economists had expected a gain of 75,000 jobs. The report underscored the frail economy and kept fears of a recession on investors' radar. . . . Adding to the weak tenor of the report, nonfarm employment for June and July was revised to show 58,000 fewer jobs.”

And The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday, “The Obama administration now says U.S. unemployment could persist at its current stubbornly high level around 9% well into 2012.” The WSJ noted, “Mr. Obama is scheduled to address a joint session of Congress next Thursday to outline his latest economic proposals. . . . White House press secretary Jay Carney suggested the measures could push the unemployment rate below 9%, but he also sought to avoid making predictions.”

Of course, that brings to mind the failed prediction that President Obama’s economic advisors made about their nearly $1 trillion stimulus bill. They said that unemployment wouldn’t exceed 8% if Congress passed their “recovery plan.” In February 2009 Obama claimed, “It's a plan that will save or create up to 4 million jobs over the next two years.” And Vice President Biden said the stimulus would create 3.5 million jobs in 18 months and “literally drop-kicks us out of this recession.”

In response to both the chutzpah of both POTUS Obama and Vice POSTUS Biden, the outcry of the general public is clearly, "like hell it did." Bold faced lies require bold faced responses. There are indeed to many to print. Below are a few of today's responses from outside of the Federal Government:

Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson responds, "Obama's economy continues to fail to produce the private sector jobs to even meet the needs of new entrants in the economy, let alone those who are currently unemployed. What is stunning is that the economy created zero jobs in August. It is almost criminal that Obama continues to offer the same failed stimulus solutions that focus upon his radical agenda to change our economy from the most productive in the world to one where hope is replaced by despair and innovation is punished."

Texas Governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry responded on the August job numbers, “President Obama’s job-killing polices continue to wreak havoc on the American economy. The poor national jobs picture stands in stark contrast to Texas’ pro-jobs, limited government policies which helped make us the top job-producing state in the nation. Our country cannot afford four more years of economic misery, and I will continue to travel the county talking about ways to get American working again.”

Former Massachucett's Governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney responded, “Today’s disappointing unemployment report is further proof that President Obama has failed. President Obama oversaw an economy that created zero jobs last month and that is unacceptable. In order to change the direction of this country, we need to change presidents.”

Former New Mexico governor and presidential candidate Gary Johnson responded to today's report of no new jobs in August, "With today's jobs report, the worst in a year, one has to wonder what it will take to make the President and Congress admit that they are doing all the wrong things. Government does not create jobs, it kills jobs. Yet, the White House says the answer is to pass a highway bill so they can 'stimulate' construction jobs. Washington has stimulated us to death, and it has to stop. Provide certainty for employers, stop the insane spending, and reform the tax code.  Do those things, and the private sector will do the job creation.  We have let the myth of government jobs programs go too far, and America is suffering as a result.  We don't need more prime time speeches -- we need government to just get out of the way."

Former George Representative, US House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich provided the image used today quote belwo it. He also said, "On Thursday, we will get to hear the president’s plan to get us out of the mess he helped create. We will find out whether he has learned from history and given up his commitment to class warfare and bureaucratic socialism in favor of liberating American entrepreneurs to do what they do best – create jobs. Either way, I want you to know that I will continue offering leadership now, advocating for the right policies now for job creation now."

It is very clear from today's dismal August employment report that those bold faced presidential and vice presidential predictions were not only exaggerated and didn't come true, they were in fact baseless. The president's agenda is counter-productive to creating jobs and expanding the American economy. The Obama administration is already pushing job killing regulations. On Sept 8th, President Zero will try for a "do over." Getting a "do over" may have worked for Obama when he played sandlot games in Indonesia, or in his unrecorded college classes or even in Chicago politics, but after over two years of his policies and administration wrecking the American economy, most Americans are not interested in giving President Zero another "do over" as he again attempts to harangue Congress with his socialist based agenda.

As for me, I do not wish to be frustrated with another Teleprompter Performance. If I learn that the President admitted that he has been wrong in his policies and is sorry for his failures, I will watch his comments on  the Fox News' replays or on YouTube. Instead, I will join millions of "red blodded" Americans in preparing food and snacks for Thursday night's 8:30 PM (ET) NFL season kickoff: the Green Bay Packers verse the New Orleans Saints.
