Another Casualty Of The Obama Recession

By Wyatt Earp | August 18, 2011

Remember all of that Hopey Changey crap Barack Obama sold the rubes in 2008? The Obama t-shirts, bobbleheads, and home pregnancy kits seemed like a good idea at the time, but after two-plus years of Obamanomics, the bloom is off the Obama souvenir rose.

At this point, the president couldn’t give away one of his official STD home tests and the Obama ’12 Rastafarian hats are being forced upon the victims of the Haitian earthquake.

Downtown shopkeepers and cart vendors near the Mall said last week that Obama-related sales had significantly slowed — in part because of a traditional August tourism lull, in part due to the president’s sagging approval ratings . . .

Mr. Morse points to a set of shelves housing Obama-themed merchandise. There are books and baseball caps, jigsaw puzzles and bobbleheads. A street sign reads “Democrat Parking Only.” Three rows are stuffed with plush dolls modeled after Bo, the White House dog; an Obama 2012 T-shirt – the first of its kind — has a red, white and blue image of Hawaii and a caption reading, “50th State Birthplace. FACT!!”

In 2012 I hope we see t-shirts reading, “Barack Obama: One-Term President. FACT!”

    Soon all this junk will be at the 99 cent store for two for 99 cents.

    LDIV – Most of us won’t be able to afford that after another year and a half of Obamanomics.

    Danny – It really would be the best thing for the country. I’m still surprised no Democrat has the stones to give him a primary challenge.

    Not to defend the guy, but did anyone expect whoever won in 08 to go two terms?

    The only good thing that come from Obama’s term is we proclaimed to the world and ourselves we can pull our heads out our racist asses and give anyone a shot. Next agenda? Pulling our heads out of our homophobic asses.

    Dr. Evil – Probably not. Randal said whomever wins in 2008 will have to deal with the recession. He was right. But I absolutely believe Obama made it worse. Much worse. In 2012, we need someone who can right the ship and un-frak our economy. I think either Romney or Perry are best suited for that.

    Romney, maybe. Perry, HELL NO!

  8. Wyatt Earp Says:

    Randal – Perry is great economy-wise. The evolution quote he threw out there today, though, was “out there.” Plus, the Bush family despises him, so I figured you’d be on board.

    “Perry is great economy-wise.”

    How so? and you can’t use his job creation record since most of them were minimum wage jobs.

  10. Randal Graves Says:

    Oh, and while the whole “Bush family hates him is intriguing”, he’s a over-the-top nut job.

    That’s why someone like Romney will probably get the Repub. nomination; after watching last week’s debate, he’s one of the few that seems ‘normal’ enough to be accepted across the whole Republican spectrum (regular Republicans, Tea-Partiers, ultra-conservatives, etc).

    How can any intelligent, free thinking, factual person support obama?

    Look at his personal history, his past jobs?, his record as a senator and finally, what he’s done as president. Can anyone tell me what a CEO of a company that’s in trouble would do to fix its problems? Would he/she be going to company meetings telling the employees its his/her predecessors fault or would the person be bringing ideas to fix the issues to the table?

    Right now the damn Bobblehead Doll in the picture would be a better President.

    Randal – You won’t read it – or you’ll instantly try to discredit it – but this is one of the better analyses of his job in Texas. And the guy doesn’t even like Perry. But yeah, he should only get credit with fixing an economy in the Obama recession by creating CEO-level jobs.

    Let’s be honest. You’re not voting for Romney. You’re voting for Obama in 2012, no matter who his opponent is. Even after the man has decimated the country financially.

    Ferrell – I have no idea. His poll numbers are in the toilet, the economy is much, much worse than when Bush was president – and people wanted him strung up in 2008 – and he insults our allies at every turn. But he’ll lock in the black vote, and more than enough others will vote for him to prove they’re not racist – again. Even if it means a depression.

    Then you’d be surprised who I’d vote for as of today.

    And I did read it plus a bunch more; it’s an interesting read and I’m sure we’ll get more real facts about it over the coming months. The article doesn’t mention that almost 10% of hourly workers in Texas are paid at or below minimum wage compared to 6.0% nationally. Texas’ unemployment rate (8.2%) is the median for the country, so not bad but no great either. Texas’s uninsured rate is much higher than the Nat. average. It should be interesting to hear more from him.

    Also interesting that Texas used 97% of their ‘evil’ stimulus money to cover their deficit. I think we’ll end up finding out that Texas is in just as much trouble as most other states.

    Also, I’m not ready to vote for a guy who officially prays for rain for 3 days.

    Wyatt: He’ll lock in the vote of the people who are currently sucking off the Government Tit for food stamps, Unemployment, Welfare, etc. and that unfortunately is one big block of voters right now.

    Speaking of minimum wage, one of the most effective ways to stimulate our economy is to suspend the minimum wage. Let small business offer jobs at the rate that makes a decent profit and puts more people to work, and let people make a choice if they want to work for less money as opposed to being unemployed. Wait until the economy is healthy, then reinstate the minimum wage in steps until it is back to current level. When I was unemployed for 8 months, I worked for dirt cheap just to get off unemployment and have a steady job to feed three kids and a wife. If you’ve never been there, you don’t know what it’s like.
