After Weeks of Humiliation Over Syria, Obama Ready to Re-Pivot to Economy Again

Posted by on Sep 12, 2013 at 8:12 am

This just in from the Department of Redundancy Department.

The White House is signaling it wants to shift back to the economy after two weeks in which the Syrian crisis has dominated President Obama’s schedule and workload.

Obama will be “focusing” on issues related to the economy in the coming weeks, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday at his daily briefing.

He said the president wants to push forward with economic policies that the White House believes will grow the middle class.

And the middle class! When in doubt, return the conversation to your moribund economy and remind everyone it’s the first thing you think about when you wake up and the last thing you think about before you go to sleep. In between you play golf, campaign and go to parties.

Carney acknowledged Wednesday that “there is no question that Syria has consumed a lot of attention here in Washington, around the country, around the world.”

But the White House spokesman refused to make a “political assessment” about whether the situation in Syria had affected Obama’s domestic policy hand.

That hand includes demagoguing Republicans all day, every day. Well, except when you need some of them to use as patsies for your misguided Syrian debacle.

    Oh, my goodness! He’d pivoting back to the economy again?! The man is like a whirling Dervish. His dance is endless repetitions of:

    Scandal -> pivot to economy -> failed domestic initiative -> pivot to economy -> foreign policy failure -> pivot to economy

    And even with all of that pivoting and laser-like focus, the economy spirals ever downward.

    Give the guy a break! A 360 degree pivot IS a hard pivot. Unfortunately, none of his advisors will tell him that is doesn’t change your direction.

    The screwdriver pivots, too, but the screw gets driven ever deeper.

    And the middle class!

    The best thing we can do for the economy is to re-focus on the crimes and scandals committed by our president and his cohorts, impeach and prosecute all those involved one and for all removing Obama’s poisoned and blood stained hands from the throat of the Unite States of America. It is then and only then will we be able to focus on our economy and repairing the hemorrhaging wounds inflicted on America by the current regime of Muslim saboteurs.

    I do truly believe he is focused on growing the middle class. He has been succeeding so far…He takes from small business and other just made it to the non middle, middle class and gives the the wastes of oxygen who have for generations, known nothing other than govt. support checks. He is growing by making sure working your way out the top of the middle class is dragged heavy because you are paying more for those that have never known work. He has a plan.

    Our job is to make sure we derail any and all attempts of him being able to do further damage so when the time comes to try and fix what he has wrought it might not be so extensive.

    Read it somewhere that 20+ pivots to the economy is just spinning.

    96% of all jobs “created” this year were part time. Solid B+ Obama!
