Obama's JOBS Pivot

Whenever the White House wants to change the subject, there's always another lingering problem in perpetual need of addressing that it can turn to... JOBS.

That's the pivot the Obama administration is making to try and distract from unwavering criticism of its failed rollout of Obamacare.

Hovering around 40 percent, President Obama's approval rating is lower than it's ever been. According to a CNN poll, 56 percent of Americans now disapprove of Obama's performance.

Still the Obama administration believes it can beat the bad press by focusing on American's pocket books. As Republicans keep picking up steam and evidence for their assault on the failed implementation of Obamacare, the administration is telling Congressional Democrats that focusing on the economy will outweigh, not just fallout from Obamacare, but also the administration's handling of Syria's chemical weapons and leaks about NSA spying.

Tuesday, the president will address the economy during a visit to DreamWorks film studios in California. Vice President Joe Biden and some of the president's Cabinet members will also deploy over the coming weeks to promote their boss's economic policies while recalling memories of last month's GOP-led government shutdown.

It's a risky gamble though. Polling by the Pew Research Center shows 65 percent of Americans disapprove of the president's handling of the economy.

Ya! No jobs and losing healthcare why would they vote for this ma? This is a no brainer. No job so how can you pay for the healthcare premium? Young college grads with no jobs and having to pay back college student loans then forced to move back home with their parents. The future doesn't look bright for them. Why would they support the President who made promises that he can't keep?

The first thing to do in a court case is to discredit your opponent as much as possible. Thankfully, Obama has done that to himself in so many ways with proof all over the place.

The second thing to do is to attempt to shift all blame and even the ability to be blamed off of yourself and onto anyone else seemingly viable. Thankfully, Obama has failed miserably at that with so much proof for all of us.

Thirdly, you try to "talk-up" a totally irrelevant topic to make it seem as if you have done so much good and been of such great benefit to whomever so as to remind your prosecutor and jury that you are not ALL bad or at least not as bad as what you are being tried for. Fortunately, Obama has failed miserably at that as well with so much media recordings of his statements trying to do just that which actually help to hang him for us.

Obama, in his arrogance, has failed to realize his obvious to us ignorance and incompetence as a president. Let his impeachment begin now.
