TOUCHDOWN!!! Obama to Claim Credit for This Totally Awesome Economic Recovery

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:32 am



No, really, they think there is one:

President Obama will grab credit for an improving economy in a series of speeches this week that the White House hopes will increase his political clout.

The messaging effort is intended to portray Obama as focused on jobs, which voters repeatedly say is the most pressing issue facing Washington, according to the White House.

Democratic allies argue it will allow Obama to go on offense after months in which he has been dragged down by political controversies that have dogged his second term and injured him in the polls.

How awesome do they think it is? TOUCHDOWN!!!

Strategists say it would have been more difficult for Obama to take credit a few months ago, where there was less evidence the economy was improving.

“Before there was a worry that you’d be dancing and celebrating on the 20-yard line, but now the ball is in the end zone, you do have a recovering economy that he can now definitively point to with a lot of empirical data,” said Democratic strategist Chris Lehane.

Let’s take a quick survey of where we are. The civilian labor force participation rate is at 63.5%, a tick better than the lowest it has been in forever. The slightly improved employment numbers are part-time jobs as businesses prepare for ObamaCare by cutting out full-time employees. As the WSJ explained:

The disappointments include a big jump of 247,000 in the number of “discouraged workers,” those who have stopped looking for a job. This could be a one-month anomaly given the other increases, but it bears watching.

Also disappointing is the big jump in the number of Americans who want to work full time but could only find part-time work. That number leapt to 8.23 million, a 322,000 one-month increase. Total part-time employment rose by 432,000, more than double the total number of net new jobs.

The broadest measure of unemployment—which includes discouraged workers and those who can’t find a full-time job for economic reasons—still totals more than 20 million Americans and the rate unexpectedly rose in June to 14.3% from 13.8%.

WOO-HOO! LET’S SPEND TAXPAYER MONEY TRAVELING AROUND TAKING CREDIT FOR THAT HUGE SUCCESS!!!!

TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In what world is this a recovery? And how do they continue to be allowed to blame the lack of recovery on the financial crisis from 5 years ago?

    The messaging effort is intended to portray Obama as focused on jobs,

    It is intended to portray that, since he has objectively not been focused on that.

    which voters repeatedly say is the most pressing issue facing Washington, according to the White House.

    How many times will be be allowed to “pivot” back to the economy? And when will be take responsibility for his failure on the economy?

  9. The lessons of the city of Detroit — or, perhaps less so, countries like Greece, Mexico, France or Argentina, etc — are worthy keeping in mind.

    Well, they didn’t put it there. Obama got sacked on his own 20 by reality, fumbled, and reality’s defense recovered the ball and ran it in for the TD.

    Leading from behind! Winning!

    Despite every roadblock the Obama administration has thrown up, some parts of the economy have improved. Like energy. We’re drilling for oil and natural gas everywhere the Obama administration can’t deny a permit or use a sage brush lizard as an excuse to stop it.

    But despite waging a war on domestic energy production, he’s claiming credit for what he tried to prevent but failed.

    This is leading from behind.

  95. That’s not much of an accomplishment seeing as how the last four years have seen the all-time highest deficits, each at least twice as large (or greater) than anything before.

    askeptic (b8ab92)

  96. “Fact”, your nickname should be “Misleading”.

    The rate of reduction of the deficit – due to the GOP in the House refusing to pass much of Obama’s spending demands – is meaningless. Obama’s actual deficits still remain historically high in absolute terms and in percentages of GDP. The article you reference cites “reductions” off of a very high initial deficit from Obama’s first budgets. Part of which was the gimmick of putting Iraq and Afghanistan spending into the baseline to make it falsely look like spending reductions were being achieved.

    Meanwhile, entitlement spending is still far out of control.

  98. The “Fact” is, the government’s published unemployment rate is bogus – unemployment is much higher than reported.

    Our economy remains stagnant as it has throughout Obama’s presidency and will remain so until destructive Democratic policies are ended.

  99. If the economy were really in recovery, Obama wouldn’t need to be giving all these speeches attempting to convince us that it is getting better.

    Elephant Stone (6a6f37)

  100. SPQR, don’t forget how the Congress in Jan-09 larded up the finally passed FY-09 appropriations with all of the stuff that GW threatened to veto, and then passed the Stimulus on top of that, ratcheting up the baseline even more.
    If we just went back to the FY-07 budget and used the baseline increase average from the previous 2-3 years, we would be spending so much less money now we wouldn’t need to talk about deficits and debt.

    : MD has been occupied working on the third floor, so I offered to reply. (Actually, I didn’t offer, I’m just doing it whether he likes it or not).
    It is interesting to me how the unemployment during GW’s “jobless recovery” is less than during the “roaring” recovery under President Obama;
    I haven’t “roared” that “loud” myself since I was about…6 hours old.

    And my mummy, ever so patient and kind, said that I had a good pair of lungs too, but she says it would not be fair to compare a fierce baby jaguar to a baby boy named George…

    Oh, did William honor his Great-Grandfather (George VI) by naming the new Prince, George?
