Obama Knocks Newsweek On Recession Over Cover

Newsweek has a cover with a balloon containing the words “The recession is over.” Barack Obama poked a little fun at that cover in a town hall style meeting:

“I don’t know whether you’ve seen the cover of the latest Newsweek magazine on the rack at the grocery store, but the cover says: ‘The Recession is Over,'” Obama said, prompting chuckles in the audience.

“I imagine you might have found that news a little startling,” he continued, to more laughter. “I know I did.”

The last thing Obama needs is for people to be reminded that his 787 billion dollar stimulus did not work and that the economy is worse now than it was back when the stimulus was passed. Obama promised us unemployment would not go above 8% if it was passed and would hit more than 9% if it was not. His caveat was that it could go even higher if we did nothing.

They rushed the stimulus through and unemployment is 9.5%, there are no signs of recovery and those so called shovel ready projects have not started. Few if any jobs have been created and the dollar gets weaker by the day. Obama’s stimulus has been a failure and the Newsweek cover mocks this (though they might be sincere in their assertions).

So Obama poked a bit at the cover claiming the recession is over. In February, Newsweek featured a cover with the words “We are all Socialists now.” Obama made not one peep about that cover. He runs around claiming that those who call his health care plan Socialist are wrong but when a major magazine called us Socialists he never said it was not true.

He was quick to hit the one about the recession but silent about the one on Socialism. Perhaps it is because he knows the recession is not over but he wants us all to be Socialists.

I know Obama is a Socialist and that he is leading this country down the road to Socialism and that is probably why he made nary a peep about the Newsweek cover claiming that we are Socialists.

Sometimes silence speaks louder than words…

    *Good luck surviving the recovery

  2. Check out Newsweek‘s response to BHO’s criticism. LOL!

    Newsweek must have felt like the magazine equivalent of Joe Biden, or perhaps Hussein thought that Biden wrote the story- in any case, I am sure that Newsweek had it’s heart broken, as they undoubtedly thought they were propping up the Resident’s regime.
    They have become a jester.
