Did you all notice Obama’s “walk-back” from his statement that the private sector is fine, but we need to hire more teachers, police, etc……? His walk-back had an intentional choice of words. Obama stated, “The private sector is doing fine.” He was trying to make the case that we need more people on the public teet. But, when people started to laugh at him, he tried to clarify…. “Listen, it is absolutely clear that the economy is not doing fine….”
See the subtle difference? Dirk points out, “The private sector is doing fine” / “The economy is not doing fine” – for him, this is not a contradiction.”
But, that does beg the question…. how are the public vs private sectors doing?. Well, I haven’t subtracted one from the other yet, but I can say that while the U.S., as a whole, has been stuck at 8+% unemployment for a year, the public sector enjoys a 4.7% unemployment rate!
He’s either an entirely detached president, or, he’s a lying scumbag, hell-bent on deceiving the American public. Source
