Meanwhile, back at the economy…yes…you remember: the part of life where the rest of us work to enable the government soap opera to continue?

Ring a bell?

You work hard, toil and save and act responsibly, have children, a dog—never a cat-- go to church, coach t-ball and pay your mortgage, none of which you would be able to do we’re it not for the geniuses in Washington, D.C., like Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama.

So anywho, meanwhile back at the economy, more people are worried about losing their jobs than ever before.

“More than six in 10 workers in a recent Washington Post-Miller Center poll worry that they will lose their jobs to the economy surpassing concerns in more than a dozen surveys dating to the 1970s,” reports the liberal mouthpiece for Hope and Change, the Washington Post. “Nearly one in three, 32 percent, say they worry ‘a lot’ about losing their jobs, also a record high, according to the joint survey.”

Six years into the Barack Obama experience, the president still treats the economy and jobs like Michael Vick treated pit bulls. The difference is Vick got help and repented.

Obama thinks there’s an endless supply of economy and it tastes like dog.


No. Ick.

(For record: Vick’s a much better quarterback than Obama is… an…anything?)

“You’re on your own if you’re out of work, can’t find a job,” said Obama about the practice of previous American presidents who knew they really weren’t economic rock stars, even if they played them on TV. “Tough luck you’re on your own. You don’t have health care: That’s your problem. You’re on your own. If you’re born into poverty, lift yourself up with your own bootstraps, even if you don’t have boots. You’re on your own.They believe that’s how America is advanced.”

Well, not really.
