Obama: Romney Not Necessarily Qualified to Think About “Economy as a Whole” or Something

Obviously to be able to think of the economy as a whole you’ve got to earn your street cred as a community agitator. Yeah, that’s it. In Obama’s case, the economy is a hole, as in black hole. Oh wait, that’s racist. But whatever the case, this must be some groundbreaking stuff from CBS, as they’re releasing this interview in dribs and drabs.

Maybe at some point we’ll get to the part of the interview where Charlie Rose asks him why he’s a stuttering cluste*fuck of a miserable failure.

“When some people question why I would challenge his Bain record, the point I’ve made there in the past is, if you’re a head of a large private equity firm or hedge fund, your job is to make money. It’s not to create jobs. It’s not even to create a successful business – it’s to make sure that you’re maximizing returns for your investor. Now that’s appropriate. That’s part of the American way. That’s part of the system. But that doesn’t necessarily make you qualified to think about the economy as a whole, because as president, my job is to think about the workers. My job is to think about communities, where jobs have been outsourced.

So a guy who’s never crated a damn thing other than misery has the chops to question a wildly successful businessman?

This clown couldn’t make a profit off a lemonade stand.

Romney, meanwhile, released a new ad:

Thanks to Ed Driscoll for the Obamaville image.

    “My job is to think about communities, where jobs have been outsourced.”

    And then ignore all that and buy a Canadian made bus. I don’t think that even he’s listening to himself anymore.

    Over and over again, Obama displays his fundamental ignorance of the economy and his flawed view of the role of government in society. No investor goes into a company with the idea the business is going to be unsuccessful. Are there unscrupulous or incompetent business people out there? Sure. Are there end of life companies like the yellow pages that will die because of shifting consumer patterns? Sure. But the central notion that animates this president — that earning returns on investment is somehow antithetical to job creation and running a successful business — is just a reheated version of the Marxist ideology of the surplus value of labor and the “theft” of that value by capital. He has no concept that capital and its returns are due to risk, not theft, and risk is an essential part of the growth of the economy. Government, on the hand, is capable of (if not designed for) pure theft. Like most incompetent administrators, Obama is a master at shifting blame and creating bogeymen. The reality is that he simply sucks at governing effectively. No amount of finger pointing will change that.

    Heck, maybe Barry thinks Finland, home of Fisker Motors, is one of his fifty-seven states.

    “… Like most incompetent administrators, Obama is a master at shifting blame and creating bogeymen. The reality is that he simply sucks at governing effectively. No amount of finger pointing will change that.”

    All Obama the ‘community organizer’ really knows is how to demonize and agitate a la Alinsky. And this one-trick-pony has nothing left in his meager skill set but divide and conquer.

    “if you’re a head of a large private equity firm or hedge fund, your job is to make money. It’s not to create jobs. It’s not even to create a successful business”

    wow, this is colossally stupid.

    Omama recently claimed he needed to learn how to “tell a better story”. Jesus H Christ – he’s been telling stories to America for nearly four years now. And by claiming he’s better qualified to run America’s economy he just told the biggest fucking whopper of all!

    The country is falling apart by the seems. We have a racist, illiterate, ignorant President who is thought by supposedly normal people to have saved the country…from falling apart. He is an imbecile that has a teleprompter for a brain. Brian, Greg, and Katy all think he has a normal IQ. What gives? Do they want more of this fool? Do not not see the closed store fronts? The unsold houses? The rising crime? The homeless? The strange people hanging at the malls?

    It’s absolutely mind-blowing how wrong this guy can be, even on arguing on a fifth-grade level of understanding. How else does this moron think the economy grows and jobs get created except via the success of the businesses that operate within it? Wait, I know the answer…the thinks the government makes jobs.

    I don’t think I’ve EVER despised another politician as I do Omama. Considering I came of age during the Nixon administration that’s saying a lot. Omama keeps jerking of the country and golfing all the while sporting that same stupid grin.

    I don’t know who pisses me off more – the media who continues to kiss his or the fifty-two percent of Americans who voted for him. And the kicker is he’ll get that same demographic to vote for him again. We’re fucking doomed as a society when the people voting for freebies outnumber the ones footing the bill.

    And by circumventing the welfare regulations that were LEGALLY passed by congress (who needs them) Omama has sewn up the handout vote. Then again he had the welfare constitutes anyway. They know which way the wind blows and who’s signing their checks.
