Does anyone remember the promise from President Obama that unemployment would not exceed 8%. The last unemployment figure is now 9.5%, and is expected to increase for several more months. The White House is backpedaling like crazy making excuses that they didn’t know how bad the economy really was when President Bush left office.
Considering that between the election and taking office multitudes of economic experts paraded through the “Office of the President Elect” (!) offering advice, analysis, and solutions to heal the economy of the United States. Facts, figures, and everything in between was analyzed to the Nth degree and resulted in the pork-laden Stimulus Bill “that we had to pass.”
Again – Really?
So this week, President Obama (with family in tow) is attending the G8 world economic summit. The “girls” are headed out with shopping sprees (stimulating Italy’s economy instead of the United States), and Obama’s interest appears to be, well, elsewhere:
I would hate to be in his shoes once Michelle gets back from shopping…
It’s nice that he and his family can enjoy themselves at the taxpayer expense while we are paying the bills (now and for the rest of our great-grandchildren’s lives).
