That is the question:
Hopefully in 2012 we can help get Obama to at least empathize with the “lost his government job” part.
Why didn’t he just tell her to hold tight and soon one of his millions of lucrative “green jobs” would be coming her way? In the near future, we’ll all have one… right? Or maybe Obama should have explained his pal Nancy Pelosi’s economic theory of how unemployment checks are great job creators. “What would I do if I were you? I’d go home swelling with pride in the knowledge that I was creating jobs while doing absolutely nothing!”
The best advice for this woman would would have been to avoid asking somebody who’s never even run a lemonade stand, and couldn’t do so without ending up bankrupt, for jobs and economic advice — but she wasn’t about to be told that for obvious reasons.
