Zero, My Hero

By Wyatt Earp | September 2, 2011

Apparently, the folks who referred to the president as a “Zero” were right on the mark, as August saw zero jobs created!

The US economy created no jobs and the unemployment rate held steadily higher at 9.1 percent in August, fueling concerns that the US is heading for another recession.

It was the first time since World War II that the economy had a net zero jobs created for a month.

Economists had been expecting the report to show a net of 75,000 jobs created, an unusually low number considering the US is technically more than two years removed from the end of the last recession.

There’s no need to worry, though, because President Obama is expected to solve this problem with yet another speech. This one will address “job creation” and is set for Thursday – the same day the NFL opens its season. Mr. President, since no one will see that speech, allow me to offer a suggestion; the best way to stimulate job creation is to get government out of the way.

    Of course the “speech” requires a Joint Session of Congress. Something usually reserved for State of the Union or We Just Declared War On…..

    No Abuse of Power here. Folks.

    None Whatsoever.

    Also, it wouldn’t surprise me if he’d be tone deaf enough to preempt the NFL.

    If tv watching trends are any indication, even this won’t get people watching his speech.

    Ferrell – He won. Now sit down and eat your peas!

    Ranba – People would be more open to watching his speech if he didn’t make one a few times a week. It’s enough, already.

    Howdy Wyatt! “People would be more open to watching his speech if he didn’t make one a few times a week. It’s enough, already.”
    And if he’d change his speeches that might help too. ALL he ever does is blame everything and everyone (but especially Republicans and the now “racist” Tea Party) and accepts NONE of the responsibility for the horrible nature of our economy. But even if he did change his speeches, its too late.
    I daresay that everone in the U.S. knows AT LEAST one person who is out of work, one person who is underemployed and someone who either has or is about to lost their HOME. Against that factual background I believe Obama has Zero chances of Re-election.

    At least this whole trickle down economics is still working. Glad to see all of the rich folk are spending their tax cuts on new employees and not hoarding their money.

    And Obama can shove his speech up his ass. Please preempt shitty first week football but don’t you dare screw with Giuliana and Bill.

    Don’t sell the “messiah” short.

    Remember he is a product of the Chicago Dem Machine.

    They know how to win by any means necessary.

    God Save US……………..

    Real – He’s supposed to give Congress ideas for job creation. Yeah, because his previous ideas worked so well.

    Randal – Interestingly, Obama wants the EPA because – get this – it’s a job killer. Wow, even a stupid dog can learn new tricks.

    LDIV – He needs to stop pandering to his base and listening to the economic alarms.

    John D – That’s a stimulus I think we can all get behind!

    Dr. Evil – Shoulda elected Hillary. Oh my God, did I just write that out loud?

    I have a few suggestions for a stimulus package. First, we recall a majority of our service men & women back to the states. (Let our allies pitch in more to police the Middle East as they are in closer proximity to the problems and would be the first to be affected if things really escalated in that area.) After recalling our troops, cut their forces in half, and assign the remainder to policing our borders (especially with Mexico), or hell, just invade Mexico and make it our 51st state. (By-products might be a reduction in drug trafficking and the addition of some kick-ass beaches that Americans wouldn’t be afraid to visit.)
    The money we’d save on military spending could be channeled into two nationwide projects. The first project would be to re-invest in our education system to regain the prominence we once had in finance, science, and technology. Result: more jobs. The second project would be to re-build our infrastructure including bridges, highways, mass-transit, and energy production. If you want to work, we’ll find ya’ a job! Oh yeah, one more thing. While we’re at it, how’s about we annex Cuba and help it catch up with the 21st century? They are a fine, industrious and proud people. Think how many of them would enjoy LED TV’s, new cars and K-cup coffee makers! Cha-ching! More jobs! (Plus we’d get to enjoy real cigars and more knock-out beaches.)I may be dreaming but my plan has gotta be better than what the POTUS will serve up. I’m jes’ sayin’…….

    Ex pesidents usually make big bucks giving speeches. By flooding his market here, his won’t be worth more than 10 cents. Or Yuan, which is what we’ll be using by 2013

    I know he speechifies too much. And he’s planning on doing it more. Apparently this jobs thing is SO important he can’t unveil his plan in just one speech. He’s gotta do it in ‘a series of speeches’ apparently…

    Uncle Ray – You had me at real cigars.

    Danny – Local libtard tool Michael Smerconish was touting Jon Huntsman yesterday. Huntsman is basically McCain without the personality, and Smerc thinks he is the best GOP candidate out there. Yeah douche, like we’d take the Democrats’ advice when choosing our candidate.

    Old NFO – Word is he is looking to blame the GOP-controlled Congress. You know, the one that has only been in power for nine months?

    Hutch1200 – Or pesos . . .

    Ranba – If it’s so important, why is he waiting until Thursday? Why didn’t he give it before he went on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard?

    Ingineer66 – Seconded!
