Oh my. The Lefties are all wee-wee’d up because the errand boy sent by grocery clerks has a chief White House strategist who went off the rails when he said, “The average American does not view the economy through the prism of GDP or unemployment rates or even monthly jobs numbers. People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’”
Is David Plouffe right?
Julianna Goldman, writing for Bloomberg, points out that since World War II, no U.S. president has won re-election with a jobless rate above 6 percent, with the exception of Ronald Reagan, who faced 7.2 percent unemployment on Election Day in 1984. The median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg puts the unemployment rate at 8.2 percent in the third quarter of next year.
“Their decision next year will be based upon two things,” Plouffe said. “How do I feel about things right now and then, ultimately, campaigns are always much more about the future and who do I think has got the best idea, the best vision for where to take the country?”
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of voters say the country is heading down the wrong track, showing no change from the previous survey. Since January 2009, pessimism in the nation’s current direction has ranged from 57% to 72% according to the latest Rasmussen polling results.
Plouffe and the gang are delusional and here’s why: A majority (60%) of the Political Class believes the country is heading in the right direction while a staggering seventy-seven percent (77%) of mainstream voters disagree. Forty-six percent (46%) say America’s best days are behind her while just 37% say they are ahead of her.
The Rose Garden speech on Friday, July 9th proves beyond a reasonable doubt that this president and his den of thieves are in desperate need of a clue bat.
No more years please. If you vote for this clown again you’re not a raaaaacist, you’re a masochist.
