Fears hit a fever pitch in D.C. this week; ….. unemployment too high and the Stimulus money waning, in light of the potential loss of control of the house of Representative, (including Queen Pelosi’s Speaker of the House job), has administration officials grasping at lone straws and each others’ throats.
Hoping to make it look as if the economy is improving Obama and wanting to look as if he is governing from the center, …. as if he is pro-business ….. Obama is taking some relatively unexpected steps.
The public has not bought that the Obama administration has saved 3+ million jobs; unemployment is just too high to sell that to even a gullible public.
Somehow, he has to try to boost his chances to again be elected POTUS – thus, with his popularity plummeting, Obama, has called on former president Clinton and Billionaire Warren Buffett to help.
In spite of NAFTA’s expelling manufacturing jobs to foreign nations, Clinton was successful in creating an economic surplus during his tenure. It’s interesting that Bill Clinton is taking on more from the Obama Administration – he heads for somewhere in Asia, next week.
Obama has come under increasing fire from business entities / organizations, as shown by his recent Obama / Geithner “Charm tour“.
