As Obama luxuriates on his $20 million vacation, yet another company he doomed to failure has shut its doors.

Lincolnton Furniture Company closed abruptly Thursday just one year after it was hailed by President Barack Obama as an example of the recovering U.S. economy.

Furniture-making operations stopped indefinitely and only a few people will remain employed moving forward, company financial officer Ben Causey said.

“I don’t know where it’s going to go exactly; we’re still evaluating our situation,” Causey said. “We just didn’t have any choice at this point.”

The company was not receiving the orders it needed to sustain its operations, Causey said.

“We needed more orders is really what it boiled down to,” he said. “We thought they would materialize.”

Hard to believe in such a robust economy more orders didn’t materialize. Well, at least on the upside the former employees won’t be scratching their heads wondering why their paychecks are lower today. They’ve got that going for them.
