As Twitchy reported earlier, President Obama spun madly today during a briefing on the economy and blathered on about headwinds and such. No ‘thingamajigs,’ though. The most damning part was that President Obama said, with a straight face, that the private sector is “doing just fine.” Unemployed with no job in sight? Whatever. You’re doing just fine. Can’t afford gas for your car? Doing just fine! Horrific jobs report? Shaddup! You’re doing just fine!


Twitter was at the ready to go all in on mocking and it didn’t disappoint. In fact, two hashtags sprung up: #headwinds and #DoingJustFine.

Yep. Worse, people understand that he didn’t misspeak; he actually meant that. To Obama, government jobs are all that matter. The State should control all. Representative Ellison said as much last week; the most disappointing jobs numbers to him were cuts in government jobs.

Talk about out of touch. Well, the Ivory Tower is doing just fine.

    The Strongest Headwind President Obama is facing is the bipartisan outrage pointing out the National Security leaks originating from the White House.

    “The private sector is doing just fine,” per President Obama. It’s his voter base that is really in need of governmental largess, i.e. Organized Labor membership.

    Perhaps all his trips with all the “beautiful” people in Hollywood have blinded his judgement? Could this guy be more out of touch???

    Romney has got this one right, this fool is defining what it means to to be “detached” however I’d (and so should he) go much further and state, unequivocally, that he as stupid and ignorant as his liberal voting base is, also, as long as he is at the helm this country(and whats left of the free world) is heading straight into Armageddon.

    To quote a certain iconic colonial marine: “GAME OVER MAN… GAME OVEERR!!
