Obama Pivots to Economy for 21st Time
 
by John Nolte 8 Nov 2013, 5:54 AM PDT

With his poll numbers dropping almost as fast as his credibility, President Obama has decided it is once again time to pivot his focus away from the disastrous ObamaCare rollout and towards his slightly less disastrous economic recovery. For the 21st time in just five years (which averages out to once every 3 months -- the last time was less than 2 months ago), the White House announced Thursday that "President Barack Obama will try to shift the national conversation to economic growth."

The president is probably under the impression that a pivot is possible now that he has sort-of apologized to millions of Americans he lied to, on at least three dozen occasions, about being able to keep their insurance.


According to Reuters, in a speech today, Obama will call for more government spending:

He will again deliver the message that the United States should spend more on its roads, bridges and ports as a way to expand jobs and strengthen U.S. firms through increased trade.

The Reuters report was written before the release of today's jobs numbers. Apparently, one talking point the president expected to use against the GOP is now dead in the water:

His remarks will come on the day the government releases a jobs report for October, which is expected to show U.S. employers added 125,000 positions in the month.

That number was likely half as much as employers would have added if not for the 16-day government shutdown in October, the White House has estimated.

…except, 204,000 jobs were created, which still isn't a very good number. But it does kill a narrative the White House and media were ginning up that would blame the GOP for weak job growth.
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776

Thank God. At last things are going to start getting better.
