Obama and His Aides: On Top of the World
Dr. Laurie Roth
July 6, 2011
Already in this campaign season we hear the usual boring and predictable rhetoric emanating from Mr. Obama about how he and the nation inherited this economic mess and the current unemployment nightmare. "Bush this" and "Republican that." Even though President George W. Bush has been retired for several years now, all the ills of the natrion can be tracked to back him, even your sore shoulder, your pimples and your hair loss. Mr. Bush and Conservatives do everything wrong, you know.

America is in great pain. Our economy is still experiencing a huge recession, the housing market is as bad as during the Great Depression and unemployment continues to hobble the country. Even the Los Angeles Times is acknowledging unemployment at 9.1 percent. Many other sources -- and various states -- report much higher figures, some double and some triple those numbers.

On FOX News the other day, Charles Krauthammer reminded us that we are showing unprecedented unemployment. In fact, not only is one out of every six Americans unemployed, many have been unemployed for 6 months or longer. He points out how this is unheard of in America and actually more common in Europe. In the Bush years it took an average of five weeks to gain employment from the unemployment roles. Today we are talking 6 months or more.

Krauthammer ominously states that the unemployed middle class may never get another job. We have a nation of an expanding demographic of rich political and global elites and increasingly poorer worker bees. That is the classic Obama, Socialist/Communist plan.

It gets better...

This week the liberal leaning Los Angeles Times pointed out the "great shape" in which Obama’s staff and aides "find themselves." Andrew Malcolm wrote a great piece and talked of Obama’s 454 White House aides bringing in a whopping $37,121,463 a year in salary. Isn’t that precious?

This is while We the People are forced to endure the endless empathetic speeches on the economy presented by the President -- some would say with his fingers crossed behind his back, acknowledging the truth of our economic mess and staggering unemployment.

One in three Obama aids earn more than 100,000 a year. This is significantly up from President Bush’s aide count and salary norms. Apparently 21 of Obama’s aides are "superstars" in these sufferable and difficult times. They earn $172,200 each. Shall we take a collection for them?

As unemployment numbers go up, housing and retail goes to hell, and 1 in 6 has been unemployed, many for 6 months or more, this President is stoking-up his Saul Alinsky "blame-fest" targeting Conservatives and Bush...again.

Mr. Obama apparently thinks that when you hit a baseball and it goes flying through your neighbors window, glass flying everywhere, it is the window and houses fault for being in the way. Let the American demolition continue.

I think not!
