Presidential candidate Barack Obama took a break from his jam-packed fundraising schedule this morning to squeeze in a special guest appearance as President of the United States.

 

Almost a week after the most recent round of dismal employment reports, Mr. Obama took to the podium to make what was advertised as a statement on the economy. Not surprisingly, the event was just another stump speech from our Campaigner-in-Chief.

Arriving 25 minutes late, the president delivered the same old excuses and called for the same old non-solution – specifically that Congress pass the “jobs plan” he’s been pushing for almost a year.

Of course that jobs plan is nothing but more wasteful government spending just like the $800 billion stimulus which failed to produce the promised results. Yet today the president claimed that had this latest scheme been approved by Congress, “we’d be on track to have a million more Americans working this year. The unemployment rate would be lower. Our economy would be stronger.”
