Cozy press conferences won't boost GDP

Post by Guest on Sun Jul 17, 2011 12:04 pm

Most of us have suffered in the past several years, whether we have lost jobs or have watched friends and family members lose their income. We have seen innumerable small businesses fold in the brutal environment of this ongoing recession. And most of us have begun to question the actions this administration has taken to address the problem.

Last week, White House spokesman Jay Carney was asked to align Plouffe's comments on jobs with the president's attitude on the importance of job creation. In a response that seemed to reinforce Plouffe's statement, Carney replied: "Most people do not sit around the kitchen table and analyze GDP and unemployment numbers. They talk about how they feel, their own economic situation . . . whether they're making their house payments."

Does Carney — does the entire administration — realize that it usually requires a job to make a house payment? Do they realize that until unemployment gets down to, oh, say, Bush-era numbers, Americans are going to remain worried?

Even after all these years, it's still the economy, stupid.

Lack of leadership and devisivness in our government, I feel is what's hurting this country most right now. How long can we remain one nation indivisable when no one shares or is willing to work towards our president's vision. Or when the other party is determined at all costs to sabatage the presidency of the party that occupies it. Both parties are guilty of this. Never since the Civil War, or more recently the Viet Nam war has this country been so deeply divided.

As Abraham Lincoln once said, "A house divided against itself cannot stand".
