Obama’s economic boom in Indiana is a bust for his climate change agenda

by Dave Boyer  |  published on June 1, 2016

Gas-guzzling motor homes that President Obama blames in part for climate change are the same vehicles the White House is cheering for spurring the economic recovery of an Indiana town where Mr. Obama will take a victory lap Wednesday.

Mr. Obama will visit Elkhart, Indiana, to claim credit for its economic recovery despite administration policies that discourage manufacturing of the fuel-inefficient recreational vehicles, which have helped the city rebound with sales buoyed by low fuel prices.

Elkhart is the first place Mr. Obama visited as president, during the recession in April 2009, to push for an economic stimulus plan. His vision became the bloated $821 billion recovery act that passed Congress with only three Republican votes.

Elkhart, where unemployment rose to nearly 20 percent, received about $170 million of that taxpayer money. Seven years later, the city’s jobless rate is about 4 percent, and Mr. Obama is ready to play a little bit of presidential “I told you so.”

    Obama taking credit for the boom in Elkhart Indiana would be like if Obama was on a baseball team and his team was behind and in the bottom of the ninth bases are loaded and Obama comes to bat. The manager replaces Obama with a pinch hitter. The pinch hitter hits a grand-slam and wins the game. And after the game Obama claims he won the game.

    HE A FOOL AND DON’T KNOW WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT I CAN’T SEE HOW SO MANY AMERICAN WERE FOOLED THE FOR A 2ND TERM WOW THEIR IS ONE BORN EVERY DAY

  • Discusted

    “F” Obama the Kenyan, he is a LYING WORTHLESS POS !

  • ch

    Obama the Muslime, lying, hyprocite. All his trips and vacations and those of his manwife, of course, do not contribute to global warming. His lying spewing mouth contributes to his perceived global warming as does Al Gore and those that believe in the lie

  • insaney

    Any chance to take the credit for a positive thing. But for things like ,fast and furiouse,or Bengahzi, or any off a dozen or more offenses, he says, ” I knew about it the same time you folks ( he loves usings folks. Thinks it makes him sound like a real good ol boy ) found out about, on CNN breakng news. It’s his fucking JOB to know about that stuff, not play stupid

    • ch

      He is not playing stupid he is stupid. If he attended any of his briefings, he would know what is going on. hard to know anything when you are golfing all the time.

  • robert sanders

    what about the rest of the nation

  • justinwachin

    The average Obama voter will not make the connection between reason for this town’s economic revival and global warming. They will praise President Obama for fixing their economic problems and join with him in demonizing vehicles which are allegedly causing global warming and all its problems.

    The mindset of the average Obama voter will never realize the contradiction. They will be too busy praising Barack the Great.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    if he ain’t talking out his ass he wouldn’t have anything to say, i seen really stupid people in my life , but he beats them all , he doesn’t even qualify for the label stupid brain dead is more like it, the freak is so 2 faced every day he controdicts himself

    • kbfallon

      Actually–he is very smart…he’s getting away with it isn’t he? I just hope that Trump will speak as highly of Obammie as Obammie did about the Bush presidency…..No one before him would lower themselves to do such a thing in the past. History will show what a scumbag he is/was.

      • Richard Bagenstose

        no he isn’t smart , the problem is we have a bunch of ass kissers in congress that are just as stupid, only looking out for there financial gain instead of doing there jobs, and when the shit hits the fan they will all be dead then let them laugh

  • Rodney Steward

    It’s coming on FOX NEWS in a few minutes on this very subject!!! He’s still a legend in his own mind, and still no accomplishments and Hellary is running for the same job with NONE EITHER, just a BLOOD TRAIL!

  • CBUJAN

    Obama worst president in history !

    • robert sanders

      who said he was a president. DICTATOR

  • Conservative3446

    But it’s all fine and dandy that the cost flying Air Force 1 is about 228,000 per hour, and he isn’t saying a damned word about the fact that in a single year, just two of his ‘family vacations’ (Africa and Hawaii) cost tax payers (for flying costs only) a total $15,888,585. Lying, hypocritical sOb.

    • Dennis B Anderson

      And he said all he needed was a pen and a cell phone.!!! For a send off we should give him and his entire family a used 12 ft row boat, It should be at the New Jersey shore because the place has the statue of liberty turning its back to them. A bit of fanfare and a banner that reads
      Kenya Or Bust. With some gangster rap we will all wish that he sinks before he gets out of the Harbor. You put our country in dire straits Obama how long can you tread water, some of your menials once thought you could walk upon it!

      • robert sanders

        no, if he sinks in the harbor, he will pollute the water. wait until he gets out to sea. maybe the water is already polluted. shoot the bastard

        • Dennis B Anderson

          Well theres still time to make a gated community no phony Kenyan golfers allowed.

      • Bob

        Sorry to disappoint, but he already has his Post-Office home. He’s moving to an ALL WHITE DC Neighborhood, at a cost of over $9K per month to rent the house of a reporter and lobbyist. Why did any think he’d head back to Chicago with out armed guards?

  • The Redhawk

    tHE QUESTION :” When will this Baracky the Utter Failure and DELUSIONAL IDIOT” go and take a ROSE GARDEN Ball SPIKE about HIS SUCCESS IN INDIANA????

  • Blogengeezer

    Motor homes are Not commuter vehicles. Their inefficient mpg rating is not ongoing daily. The owners in most cases have turned Off their energy guzzling homes while away.

    Countless Canadians spend the winter in the Coastal areas because it is inefficient to heat and maintain their homes in the frozen north during the winter months. Cheaper to drive their motor homes south for the winter, than pay for the fuel costs of heating homes in the north.

    Economics historically drove the jobs and prosperity market before the ‘Collective’ society proven so deadly throughout history..

    Only in an ignorance dominated society lacking knowledge of physics, a politically dominated society that believes in a process of Five imported wind turbines [Solar equally inefficient], unsustainable loss energy production, required to replicate just One wind Turbine, does the personal ownership of socialist demonized conveyance, become a problem.

  • Bill Castellani

    Obama has been great for the economy….OMG….from 20% unemployment to 4%? Astonishing. A good reason to vote Dem.

    • James Maxwell

      Not if you discount the fact that they have skewed the figures since
      they have been in power to make them look better than they really are.
      If the admitted to a 20% unemployment rate you can bet it was much
      higher and closer to 25% to 40% and while the drop is great it is not a
      true reflection of the unemployment in the area.

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        Yup, 94 million plus, on some sort of social assistance, speaks for itself

      • mudguy1

        Can anybody name any fact that they haven’t skewed?

        • James Maxwell

          Not really

    • Sweet willy

      20 % unemployment equates to 33% dropout of the workforce due to no or lesser jobs. I think that come January we will see BLS revise its past 8 years of data to be more realistic with what has happened in this country.

    • mudguy1

      Yes Obama was so good that the Black unemployment is over 12%. We were told we could keep our doctors and insurance. We are close to 20 trillion dollars in debt. Obama is giving Iran the bomb. Anybody can use any bathroom they want. Medium income has dropped 5,000 dollars per year. More people have part time jobs or have two jobs or have their hours cut to less than 30 hours. And there is more.
      And you want us to vote for a lier that should be in prison or a hard core socialist.
      Time you learn the true history of the Democrats. When their true history is known NOBODY should vote for a Democrat.

    • Rodney Steward

      God Bless You, another totally uninformed idiot!

      • kbfallon

        All those receiving checks in the mail say the same…along with–I need more!….MORE!!!

    • kbfallon

      You do know that obammie changed how they computed those figures ……don’t you? WHY? He’s been playing three card monte with the figures!

    • Dennis B Anderson

      Well thats only the people that can still draw unemployment a good reason not to vote Dum

  • JOE

    why NOT 2 vote 4 a demoRAT!

  • JOE

    what a F’ING CLOWN.but typical liberal-demoRAT!

  • ABO

    Can you say ‘hypocrisy’?

    • SDofAZ

      To the point ABO!

  • Mike Tanco

    Why would anyone be surprised? Remember Solyndra? He is an idiot when it comes to developing jobs.

    • Rodney Steward

      This was a GIANT SCAM, almost a billion $$$ went missing on this Solyndra scam and NOBODY knew where the money went, gone, never found, but all of a sudden we had ISIS!!

      • Danah DeMartin

        That is such a good point! Also Solyndra isn’t the only $$ gone missing in BO’s administration when you think about it.

        • Rodney Steward

          You’re right, there’s the partnership of Hellary and Obama on the gun running that left people dead in Benghazi that was a cover up, and dead people can’t talk!

      • kbfallon

        Look to H.Clinton who probably has most of it squirreled away in the slush fund that they play with…

  • Patrick Driscoll

    Everything he does is corrupt or a bust. This idiot has no game and no clue.
    A 5 year old child could do better.
    Why do we and congress tolerate such stupidity.
    There has never been a more clueless president. He needs to be impeached before he comes up with anoth bathroom sceme.
    Can’t give him anymore time to fuck-up more stuff!
    Let’s impeach……jail …….trial for countless treason……max punishment!

    • rannan3

      naaahhhh, most will probably defend his presidency . After all, he is the first black president. That fact alone inures him from any repercussions.

      • Rodney Steward

        What’s so bad is how low we had to lower our standards because of this black President!

        • Rod Wilmoth

          HE WANTS WHITES TO LOWER THEMSELVES TO THE LEVEL OF FREELOADERS.

          • Rodney Steward

            He’s doing it with our school systems!

        • Danah DeMartin

          Affirmative Action at the highest level! What a fraud he is!!

    • Francisco Machado

      “We” elected a Congress that campaigned on the promise to do “everything humanly possible” to thwart and undo the administration programs. The action they took was the Omnibus Spending Bill that Obama wanted. That sure was educational. We didn’t believe the Democrats before that and we didn’t believe anyone in politics afterward. The Republicans in Congress left their voter support feeling badly misused and sorely reluctant to trust them again.

      • bob

        And that’s one of the reasons Republicans voters are flocking to a person like Trump. The GOP ” TALK ” a good game, but when it comes time to ” ACT ” on that talk ( which is also called BULLSHIT ) they fold like a cheap tent in a hurricane.
        Ryan is no better than Boehner, as he has an excuse for all the stuff the House is NOT getting done.

  • Dan

    If an industry booms despite Obama’s policies he’s there taking credit. I wonder when he’ll visit the Smith & Wesson factory and praise the gun manufacturers for their contribution to the economy and job market since he became President?

    • Blogengeezer

      Truth be known, he, as many politicos, most likely have portfolios containing a bit of high performing S&W stock. Political insider knowledge of legislation affecting any industry, is a powerful investment tool. To know precisely when to buy ……and when to sell…. is not random luck, if reliable profitability is the goal. Reason for the inevitable Wall Street connection bordering on Govt Fascism.

      • SDofAZ

        It is also called INSIDER TRADING and people in my chosen profession, any CPA or finance person with any related credentials, can go to jail for that. It is why Martha was on house arrest but these lawmakers ride that wave legally because they make the laws. This congress is criminal and has been for decades. This should have been verboden long ago and for the rest of the country it is a crime!

    • The Redhawk

      he’ll visit Smith and Wesson after he gets his YEAR end BONUS check for being S&W number ONE salesman…

      • Gary Smith

        LOL

        • The Redhawk

          Exactly!

      • SDofAZ

        He did boost their business, did he not? Good one Redhawk.

        • The Redhawk

          and Holder won SECOND PLACE!!!

          Take care!!!

          • Dennis B Anderson

            Yeah, Eric The Hair Lipped Holder hes a reallll one! Its not official yet but hes got 1 st prize for his Fast & Furious gun running. His guns made it all the way to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Somemore of that slithering rainbow prestidigitation.te hee.

          • The Redhawk

            Eric the Wesael belongs in pRISON for MURDER!!! and BTW, may be BHOBAMMY should get a Trophy by FOX NEWS for driving their audience to new HEIGHTS!!!

            Could be the ONLY posituve Trophy to go with his Many pinocchios!

    • The Redhawk

      ODUMBO is TRULY a LYING FREAK…..
