Watching Obama Fail December 17, 2012

It’s not often you have a President make a concrete promise, and then get to watch him blow it in real time. That’s about the only silver lining in this particular situation, where President Obama promised to add 1 million manufacturing jobs by the end of 2016. That’s not that impressive a goal, but even so, it’s not happening:

Manuf Jobs Dec12

This President is like Kryptonite to jobs – everything gets worse whenever he makes a verifiable prediction or tries to make jobs his “top priority.”

Which, sadly but fortunately, is not that often.

Watching Obama Fail

It’s like a slow-motion train wreck.

Except we’re on the train.

But wait! There’s a light at the end of the tunnel! Oh, it’s another oncoming train…

I should mention, as I did in the previous post on this subject, that the Obama for America crowd made their chart with actual data through April of this year. I know it doesn’t look that impressive on the chart, but that sideways turn in the data represents the 7 months since then.

That’s not a brief hitch in the trend.
