Nothing new here. Obama can't get anything done in Congress about it. We need a lot of money to pour into our pockets to spend us into a boom and it ain't happening. remains to be seen but the oil price drop is the only thing Obama can hope for.
I think he needs Jesus for that right now but an awful lot of voters are depending on their government handouts and pensions to vote against him.
I'll admit that it is going to be a lot closer than I thought because the president gets blamed or credited with everything even if he has no control over them.
Meanwhile, Patti and I are very comfortable in the new trailer "thanks to my insisting on a 3500 watt generator). Still have to work on water conservation because 50 gallons is way short. I've added 12 gallons more in portable cans so we can make it for seven days now.
I'll probably buy a portable tank for emptying the tanks when we hit the road next year so I have options on packing up at the various campsites in the Arizona deserts. Can't have too much capacity in reserve, that's for sure.
Robert Reich (The Jobs Doldrums and Obama's Future)
Bad news for the U.S. economy and for Barack Obama. We’re in the jobs doldrums. Unemployment for June is stuck at 8.2 percent, the same as in May. And only 80,000 new jobs were added. Remember, 125,000 news jobs are needed just to keep up with the increase in the population of Americans who need jobs. That means the jobs situation continues to worsen. The average of 75,000 new jobs created in April, May and June contrasts sharply with the 226,000 new jobs created in January, February and March. In Ohio yesterday, Obama reiterated that he had inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression. That’s true. But the excuse is wearing thin. It’s his economy now, and most voters don’t care what he inherited.
