Truly amazing!!!   The ineptness and failures of this administration are beyond belief.

 

From FoxNews.com

 

The Department of Energy is standing by a $529 million loan guarantee to a company building an electric car line in Finland.

A department official, in a lengthy response posted on a government blog Thursday night, confirmed that the company Fisker is assembling its Karma electric car at its “overseas facility.”

“Hey everybody, the Republicans say I’m engaging in class warfare!  Ha ha, silly Republicans.  BTW you guys, I’m a warrior for the middle class!”

So went President Obama’s recent speech in Cincinnati.  See the video here, at RealClearPolitics.  Let’s put aside the internal incoherence of Obama’s argument.  Let’s put aside the shameless and painfully obvious pandering that’s going on here.  Let’s look at the record instead.

Regular readers of this blog know that we’ve been — shall we say — skeptical about President Øbama‘s much-ballyhooed jobs speech since Obama was still living la dolce vida in Martha’s Vineyard.  Turns out, we’re hardly alone.  First, there was the reaction of the global markets, which basically sucked.  Now, there’s the polling data — which ain’t so hot either.

Did baby make a jobs speech? Good baby!

Tonight, President Øbama urged Congress to “stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy.”  Pooh-pooh him if you will, laugh if you must, but as of today, Fester is convinced that committing $447 billion to put our 14 million unemployed Americans back to work — nearly $32,000 per job ($64,000 if you want to get to a Bush-like 5% unemployment) — is the relief our economy so sorely needs.

You see, it’s recently come to light that the cost of our piss-poor economy is coming out of American babies’ hides — literally.  The NY Daily News gives us the rundown on this crappy situation:

As we await with puzzled amusement President Øbama’s post-Martha’s-Vineyard “Jobs Speech” — aimed at the unfortunate rabble who can’t afford such extravagances — Fester thought it might be useful to ponder the White House’s previous promises, predictions, and preposterous puffery.  Luckily, Reuters recently made this task very easy in its FACTBOX feature.

"This job is HARD!"

Fester’s attempt to summarize the Reuters article comes after the jump.

President Øbama

Answer this question as quickly as you can — don’t think about it:  If Fester raises the price of his lemonade, will you buy more of it, or less?  Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Incredibly, Professor Alan Krueger thinks just the opposite, at least when it comes to hiring labor.  Professor who, you ask?  You know, President Øbama’s proposed chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors — the administration’s chief economist.  Yeah, that guy!  But here’s the problem, see.  As Spengler points out, Krueger hasn’t the foggiest idea how jobs are actually created:

U.S. Unemployment - From biggovernment.com

Through his long and illustrious brief and humorous career, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney has said exactly one thing that makes sense:  “The White House doesn’t create jobs.”  Of course, that was already painfully freaking obvious to non-comatose Americans.  But whatever.

Anyways … Fester was puzzled (and a little sad) when President Obama tossed Carney’s semi-official pronouncement aside and promised yet another speech about how the White House was going to unfurl yet another plan to … create jobs.
