The Obama Effect: Businesses visited by obama feel the "reverse midas" touch
Now, we all have heard about the Gore Effect. The Goreacle, flitting around the world, hawking his GW snake oil, bringing cold, snow, blizzards with him.
In obama's case, businesses he visited to either tout his plans for his Failed Stimulus, or his "green" energy ideas, or any other business he used to tout one of his truly bad ideas have been shuttered, closed down, cut jobs, etc.
Allentown, Pa.-- When Barack Obama visited the struggling Allentown Metal Works in December 2009, the factory's industrial landscape and its rugged workers made a perfect backdrop for the president to talk about his efforts to jump-start the economy.
On Thursday afternoon, its workers gone, its windows boarded up and its lot overgrown with weeds, the century-old building again made a perfect political backdrop.
A small north Toledo eatery whose origins date back to 1923 will close Sunday, just days after being feted in a speech to Chrysler workers by President Obama.
New Chet's Restaurant, in the 1000 block of East Manhattan Blvd., is closing for good, bringing to an end a nearly 90-year run at the corner of Manhattan and Cecelia Avenue, co-owner Richard Lawrence said Wednesday.
Now, if a small business or corporation were thinking of inviting obama over for a photo op and some propaganda, I'd think twice about that.
I guess the right wing have given up conspiracy theories in lieu of superstition?
What's next? A republican mandate that we avoid stepping on the cracks as a means to avoid the tax payer cost when we break our Momma's backs?
Let me shed a little light on the subject, since you clearly don't have a clue.
When the President chooses a company, an individual(s), or an entity to tout, it is not done on a whim. It is after careful analysis by his staff, who run the scenario through a political filter first. If no particular derogatory can be deciphered, then his advisors draw up plans for using the entity as a stage prop. NONE of this is done ad-hoc. It is a carefully planned and executed event.
What does this mean? It means that Barack Obama, even after careful vetting, has chosen to puppet specific entities to tout his policies, only to see those entities fail while under his watch.
This is no small conincident. Either the President and his advisors do not fully grasp the reality of the sitiation people and companies are facing, or his policies are a Failed Experiment.
Yes, you have to admit the GOP and their allies will have tons of material for campaign ads.
Absolutely, and all in obama's own words, or his top allies. Those are by far the most devastating commercials - I read that the one currently running where he cracks the shovel-ready joke measures extremely high in the test groups.
its like when obama pushed the 'nations largest' concrete plant in Missouri, how it created jobs.....what he didnt tell you it in creating those Missouri jobs....thousands lost jobs from the closing plants across 7 states..the net job gain/loss between the closing plants and the one large one...a LOSS of 150 jobs...ZERO gain
yep more obama lies
