You probably saw it coming.
It's rather obvious.
On Tuesday, his wife had to talk him up and make him seem normal due to the fact that despite being president for nearly 4 years, he seems strange to many Americans.
On Wednesday, he tried to hog Bill Clinton's spotlight.
He prattled on with:
My opponent said it was 'tragic' to end the war in Iraq, and he won't tell us how he'll end the war in Afghanistan. I have, and I will. And while my opponent would spend more money on military hardware that our Joint Chiefs don't even want, I'll use the money we're no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work -- rebuilding roads and bridges; schools and runways.
After two wars that have cost us thousands of lives and over a trillion dollars, it's time to do some nation-building right here at home.
FactCheck.org notes on that section of Barack's speech, "Obama quoted Romney as saying it was 'tragic' to 'end the war in Iraq.' What Romney was criticizing was the pace of Obama's troop withdrawal, not ending a war."
Yes, he lied. And lied and lied.
And today the idiot really looked like an idiot. Boston Herald breaks it down:
The celebration confetti hadn’t even been swept from the floor of the Democratic National Convention when the latest jobs numbers were released — and they aren’t pretty.
So President Barack Obama can talk all he wants — as he did Thursday night — about “moving forward,” but the dismal 8.1 percent unemployment rate dipped slightly only because more than half a million Americans had stopped even looking for work. And that is the saddest news of all. If those who had stopped looking for work and those working part time when they would rather work full time were factored in, the real unemployment number would be 14.7 percent.
Oh sure, the administration pointed to the 96,000 private sector jobs added to the economy last month. But it takes 150,000 new jobs just to keep pace with population growth, and it would take more than 350,000 new jobs each month for the next three years to bring the unemployment down to a respectable 6 percent.
That's our Barack. Idiot of the week. Over and over and over.
