what a crock !

 

Obama aides shift their rhetoric on economy

 

Take up theme of sound fundamentals despite bashing idea in campaign

 

 

 

 

 

WASHINGTON - The economy is fundamentally sound despite the temporary "mess" it's in, the White House said Sunday in the kind of upbeat assessment that Barack Obama had mocked as a presidential candidate.

 

Obama's Democratic allies pleaded for patience with an administration hitting the two-month mark this week, while Republicans said the White House's plans ignore small business and the immediate need to fix what ails the economy. After weeks projecting a dismal outlook on the economy, administration officials - led by the president himself in recent days - swung their rhetoric toward optimism in what became Wall Street's best stretch since November.

 

During the fall campaign, Obama relentlessly criticized his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, for declaring, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong." Obama's team painted the veteran senator as out of touch and failing to grasp the challenges facing the country.

 

 

for crying out loud !!

 

Can Obama's team get their friggin' act togethert

Obama started to say the USA was entering the Great Depression part II. The main stream media went along with this adding to the fear of many Americans to bail out of the market and to hold onto their money , thus adding to the negative spiral, the self fulfilling prophecy and making a recession a really rally bad one.

 

 

When McCain called the funadamentals sound, the economy was in much BETTER shape than it is now.

 

Now this fool Obama, who isn't man enough to stand up to **** Pelosi, has added a trillion dollars to our debt through his "recovery and reinvestment," act AKA porkulus bill.

 

Obabma is a joke, the only good thing to come of this is that many newspapers and TV reporters will lose their jobs for failing to DO their jobs as the 4th estate.

I enjoy watching the same people cry no matter what the guy does,

 

He's being TOO pessimistic,

he's being TOO optimistic.

 

why it's almost as if some people are determined to complain no matter what he says.... errrrrr reads off a teleprompter.

The banking system nearly failed last fall. After pouring in a trillion to support them it may be fair to say we don't face the same risks now.

The point here is not that the Economy is more or less endangered today. The point is that the underlying strength (the fundamentals) remains high, and that doesn't change in five months. McCain caught hell for saying that last fall and now Obama is saying the same thing this week.

 

Does anybody doubt why he's saying that now? Honestly?

 

He's backing off from his catastrophe rhetoric because it's backfired. Immoderate speech has created "a climate of fear" (remember that canard from the Bush days?) that panicked investors out of the market. What else explains this sudden about-face?

 

Setting that aside, the greater concern (one that is causing consternation within his own party) for all of us is the cognitive dissonance at work within this administration. Obama's a post-partisan centrist who suddenly adopts a radical social and economic agenda which he steamrolls across the GOP. He wrestles in the front yard with a radio commentator while the economic house burns down behind him. He collects a huge posse of economists then farms the Stimulus out to congress.

 

He promises no Earmarks then signs a budget with 8,000 of them (in private). He promises open government and public review but allows the stimulus to be negotiated behind closed doors and signs it three days later with the ink still wet.

 

These are the politics of change? The only change operative in this administration are their opinions from day to day.

 

Look for Obama to turn politically right by summer.

I would agree if it wasn't for the fact that he surrounded himself with liberal political hacks

Simply put, he needed the fear to get his bills passed. It was textbook.

 

Now that he's spent like a drunken boob, he's falling back on the "strong fundamentals" stance to reduce the fear he himself created.

 

America was duped again. rolleyes.gif

I dont think it really matters what either of them said. No way was a republican going to win the election with how the economy started crashing last year.

 

 

Also I heard Obama say things are better then we think... I didnt hear him say anything about fundamentals... Maybe one of his lackys said it?

 

 

So basically he said something different, and even if he said the same thing word for word, its irrelevent because the Dem was going to win non matter what. It could have been Hillary too.... against any Republican....its moot, the republicans had no chance...

 

 

Plenty to debate about Obama....but this is really reaching IMO...
