    Obama says private sector 'doing fine,' then Standard & Poor keeps downgrade, negativ

    I was listening to obamas speech today while working and when he said that I dropped everything and thought WTF, did he really just say the private sector is doing fine? Then he said it again. This guy is completely out of touch with reality, it is almost scary.


    Just hours after President Obama declared the private sector was "doing fine" -- a comment from which he later backed away -- one of the nation's major credit rating agencies affirmed neither the private nor public sector was flourishing.
    Standard & Poor’s affirmed its long-term credit rating on the United States at AA+ and said its outlook remains negative.

    The credit agency made the announcement after Obama's said Friday morning that the private sector is "doing fine" and that the GOP Congress is slowing down the economy. It was immediately pounced on by Mitt Romney and other Republican leaders, resulting in the president backpedaling by the afternoon.

    Obama is up for re election and he has to sell himself so yeah, he is going to say that we are doing better. If you can find a sitting POTUS who has said things suck under my watch but vote for me anyway, good luck. I doubt you will though. Obama has to be able to sell it, and strong enough so that the GOP can't shoot it down. Under most elections, Obama would be toast, but then Romney came along.....

    Its amazing to me how this man cannot catch a break. At least whats hes saying is some what true. What Romney says has no truth at all. Hes a piggybacker.

    Yes, he said that. When he did, the Romney camp said, "Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you very much. We can use that generous gift."
    "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud... [he's] playing the American public for suckers." Mitt Romney

    I suppose everything does look fine when your idea of the private sector is fundraisers, cocktail parties, and George Clooney's living room.

    Just what we need, another Obama apologist. Maybe the old saying what goes around comes around comes true because Obama got every break plus some in 2008 where the press had a massive man crush on that clown and refused to ask him the sort of questions that might have bitched slapped the moon eyed Obama supporters to wake up and see reality. If that clown had been properly vetted he never would have beat Hillary and then McCain.

    Seriously I was floored when he said that. To put it in context he said he needed more money to get gov workers back to work, THAT was the problem with the economy, the private sector was doing fine. He said it at least three times. This man has lost touch with reality.
