The mad math skillz of Obama and Biden, yo

Almost four years ago, a month or so before the General Election, Joe Biden demonstrated his grasp of numbers and counting with one of his most memorable gaffes ever:

Got it? The number one job facing the middle class is a three letter word: J-O-B-S. Biden's inability to count aside, one has to wonder what the number one job facing the middle class is today, after four years under Obama and Biden. Evidence suggests it's still the same thing.

Obama, for his part, has been suggesting that those missing jobs are to be had by revitalizing the manufacturing sector of the economy, even though he's spent four years enacting policies which make it harder on that sector. Still, he's using it as a "rah-rah" moment. Yesterday in Florida, he returned to it in full:

“We can create a million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years, because we’re selling goods around the world stamped with three proud words: Made in the USA.”
Is this just Biden rubbing off on Obama? It would be nice if that's all it was. But it seems to me that--coupled with other issues, like the cost of Obamacare, the effects of the Stimulus bill, and the General Motors takeover--these comments are par for the course (great, now Obama is going to get his golf clubs). The current Administration just can't count. Math is not it's forte. But it would seem that this isn't a problem for his legions of sycophants, who are more than willing to forgive these lapses and the actual results of Obama's policies. In that regard, I have a new campaign slogan that would suit the President very well:
Obama/Biden: THREE more years!
I'm having bumper stickers and yard signs made up, right now...

Cheers, all.


  1. Maybe if he hadn't spent all that time trying to kill the business jet manufacturing business, one of the few areas that still sold large quantities of (high-dollar) product overseas, I'd think he was on the right track...

  2. Excellent point, T.M. The private jet stuff had slipped my mind. Thanks for the comment.

  3. I saw a video in the link below and thought you'd like it. Nah... Obama isn't lying, he is just being creative with the truth.
