Obama Tries to Walk Back His saying "Private Sector is Doing Fine" Even Democrats Upset With Him ( videos)

What a gift this statement was by Obama. Oh the perils of being without the teleprompter:

LOL remember how we heard constantly from the media including Wolf Blitzer for example what a wonderful speaker Obama was.....well not anymore. Listen to Wolf say Obama cannot give a speech without a teleprompter or notes. haha


An obviously irritated Barack Obama had to clarify his ridiculous remark earlier today, that “the private sector is doing fine.” His remark set off a firestorm, with both Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee immediately making hay out of the statement. By this afternoon, Obama had to address the fallout by trying to clarify his remark, this time saying “It’s absolutely clear the Economy is not doing fine.”

Even the Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty knows Barack Obama’s “the private sector is doing fine” remark will haunt him for the remainder of the 2012 Election – and perhaps, beyond:

It would be hard to imagine a greater gift than the sound bite that Barack Obama handed to Republicans on Friday: “The private sector is doing fine.”

At a moment when the president is struggling to connect with the economic anxieties of the American public, that statement is likely to show up again and again in attack ads, conservative commentary and Republican stump speeches between now and November.

Those six words now stand as Exhibit A in the GOP’s case that, as Obama’s opponent Mitt Romney put it minutes later, the president is “detached and out of touch” on the issue that ranks at the top of voter concerns.

Republicans know well how toxic and corrosive one such remark can be. In 2008, their own nominee, John McCain, never recovered from his declaration that “the fundamentals of our economy are strong,” even as the financial system was melting down that September. And it was then-candidate Obama who had mocked him: “Senator, what economy are you talking about?”


Republican National Committee (RNC) has already moved to capitalize on Barack Obama’s unbelievable statement today that “the private sector is doing fine” in America. This ad is called, “Doing Fine.”


Wild Thing's comment...........

Keep it up Obama, you are showing those that have been slow to wake up exactly what you are.

He is really a mess. He had so many fooled and now that he has had his reign of terror on our country the presssure on him is huge and he just can't even campaign on a positive presidency, but only one of destruction.
