Last night, the Wall Street Journal wrote President Obama was ready to “shift focus” back to focusing on jobs and the economy.
In what’s become a rite of passage every few months, we hear from the White House that—finally—yes, this will be the time they focus on the number one issue on the minds of voters: job creation and economic growth.
With almost 12 million Americans unemployed and the unemployment rate at 7.6 percent, they’re finally realizing that now is a good time to get started on it?
Inevitably, it gets pushed to the side in favor of their liberal agenda until, a few months later, they’ll roll it out again—like the same beat-up old car with a new paint job.
But while we’re at it—here’s at least 11 other times President Obama and the White House “pivoted” to jobs.
We hope President Obama will finally work with the House to implement strong pro-growth policies that will create jobs. But if history is any guide, it’s just more empty promises from a president who simply out of ideas on how to get the 12 million unemployed Americans back to work.
