President Obama: America ‘Not Better Off’ Today than Four Years Ago

Calling himself an “underdog,” President Obama today said the faltering economy is a drag on his presidency and seriously impairing his chances of winning again in 2012.

“Absolutely,” he said in response to a question from ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos about whether the odds were against him come November 2012, given the economy. “I’m used to being the underdog. But at the end of the day people are going to ask — who’s got a vision?”

The American people, he conceded, are “not better off” than they were four years ago.

“The unemployment rate is way too high,” he said of the 9 percent jobless rate, the highest in more than half a century.

It’s really a simple question. “Are you better off than you were four years ago?

Any president that receives a “No” in response has some ‘splainin’ to do if they want to be reelected.

Sadly, I was better off four years ago and I don’t feel real optimistic about the next four no matter who wins.

But I was doing a lot better twelve years ago.

    I’m starting to think he wants to loose. That could be the only way out of the mess he has made for himself and everyone else. He doesn’t like the job, he owes favors to everyone and his dog, and he could claim he was just too smart and good for such a crappy country. Loose, walk away, and claim innocence.

    Every time I see Obummer I want to send him a quarter and tell him to “take this quarter… go downtown… and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face”.

    • gram cracker says:

      Can’t you just picture Gov. Chris Christie doing an Uncle Buck on Obummer, flipping him a quarter and telling him to “get one of the sewer rats in DC to gnaw that thing off your face”.

    Richard Florida will not stop using his term Creative Class. What an arrogant dweeb. Who’s really pushing the class warfare memes…maybe it’s the creative class.
