Well, at least this sounds better than “I have no friggin clue”:

After reading his prepared remarks on the economy at a window manufacturer on Friday, President Obama sought to take some photos with workers when a pool reporter caught up with him and asked him to explain the connection between the drop in the unemployment rate and the lower-than-expected number of jobs added in December.

Obama’s response, according to the pool:

“You know, you’ve got to talk to Austan Goolsbee. That’s his job.”

When did the president join a union?

    What does the MSM see in this man? They are so enamored of his supposed "smartness". I am so baffled by his complete ineptness and lack of leadership yet the MSM touts his every move as brilliant. And keep in mind at all times that, we, as conservatives need to put forth a good solid conservative for 2012, not the person the MSM wants running against this hack. They gave us John McCain last time and it was a disaster. We need to be loud and vocal about our candidate and shut out the crap the RINOs and MSM hands us.

    This goes to show you that if you are of the party of Jack Asses you can do no wrong in the LSM. If he is so friggin' smart, let's see some of those school records to prove it.

    “You know, you’ve got to talk to Austan Goolsbee. That’s his job.” …. Ermmm, Other than partying, vacationing & golfing on the backs of the American taxpayer Mr. President, could you remind this great country that you are ruining with your Marxist agenda what your job is? Hey, it could happen, wait for it, on a different planet.

    "…..you`ve got to talk to Austan Goolsbee. That`s his job." Apparently, that`s the standard type response when TOTUS is enjoying a well deserved rest…

    It doesn`t mean much, but at least occasionally Zero knows what his job "isn`t" !

    Heh, heh !

    The carpetbagger foreigner who became a Chicagoan; the Chicagoan who became a Marxist; the Marxist bent on demolition.

    If Marxist such as this sees a gleaming, beautiful crystal castle on the hill in front of him, what is his greatest temptation?

    Cant believe it

    I`m going to guess the Marxist would NOT be tempted to greet the owner at his front gate with, " Hey, nice shed !"

    More likely, the Marxist would be tempted to mount a protest of the owner`s unfair position in life and how he`d stolen from the "People", and then try to figure a way to force the owner out, loot the castle of everything valuable and raze the rest !

    Close ?

    The Marxist/Maoist creed:

    No one person in the world society should have any more ambition than any other person. If they do, that ambition should be severely curtailed so that that ambition and any prophet acquired from that ambition would be lost by the individual.

    Every person in the world must live by the lowest common denominator, which would be that individual in the world with the lowest level of ambition.

    …and the decision would be mine.

    Obama has crossed the line from "delegation of duties" to "dereliction of duty" many times before. This is just the latest example.

  12. SignPainterGuy on January 8th, 2011 7:02 pm

    So, I can take that as a "yes" ?

  13. SignPainterGuy on January 8th, 2011 7:15 pm

    With serious doubts that this will be the last !

    He's still got almost two years (hopefully that's all) to do it many more times.
