Obamas fix to the economy – Job Summit

AY!

President Obama, facing a 10.2% unemployment rate, said Thursday he would hold a jobs forum at the White House in December.

He noted the encouraging signs of economic growth and a slowing of the loss of jobs in recent months, but said employers are still reluctant to hire and millions are desperate to find work. Ummm O-man, are you reading the same things that I am, because unemployment has gone up, not down.

But anywhos….

“Even though we’ve slowed the loss of jobs — and today’s report on the continued decline in unemployment claims is a hopeful sign — the economic growth that we’ve seen has not yet led to the job growth that we desperately need,” the President said in a statement delivered at the White House.

“We all know that there are limits to what government can and should do, even during such difficult times. But we have an obligation to consider every additional responsible step that we can to encourage and accelerate job creation in this country,” he added.

Those invited to the forum will include CEOs, small business owners, economists, financial experts, and representatives from labor and non-profits…..who I’m sure are all Democrats and this will be done behind closed doors.

Well, see you in 10 days O-man, have fun in Asia…dont worry Afghanistan will still be there when you get back.
