Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

UPDATED: Obama FINALLY discovers reasons behind high unemployment: ATM’s and airport kiosks!

UPDATES BELOW.

Man, when that guy goes off of his telebinky, it ain’t pretty:

President Obama explained to NBC News that the reason companies aren’t hiring is not because of his policies, it’s because the economy is so automated. … “There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers. You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM, you don’t go to a bank teller, or you go to the airport and you’re using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.”

Oh, so THAT’S why no one is hiring!  The automation of jobs is destroying the employment sector, I see.  And here I thought it was his and his party’s left-wing, anti-business, hostile-to-capitalism, anti-growth policies that were choking off hiring!  Whatever was I thinking?

UPDATE (06/16/2011 – 07:30 AM ET): Boehner responds (full press release at link):

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) issued a mocking press release Wednesday chastising the president over remarks Obama made claiming that ATMs and airport ticket kiosks were partly to blame for persistently high unemployment.

The release, cheekily written from the point of view of an everyday ATM, poked fun at Obama for claiming that greater efficiency from automated machines like ATMs was to blame for high unemployment.

“This is a guest blog post from the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) in your favorite convenience store near the Slurpee Machine,” Boehner’s press release said.

“I didn’t do it.”

Boehner’s fake ATM further poked fun at the president, noting that kiosks, cash machines, and even teleprompters were merely devices that made things “a little easier.”

“ATMs and airport kiosks (and even teleprompters) are tools that help make life a little easier,” the release read.

Heh.

  1. Ovimit said that? Wow, he is really stretching to reach that conclusion. Obviously his powers of reasoning are long gone. No surprise there. Is that something Soros told him to say? This time I am surprised, somewhat.
    Wait a minute. That fits with what he and the rest of the muzzies want for the world. Their idea is to push all of us back to a maybe Bronze Age civilization with the Koran as the guiding book of rules. His statement fits right in with that ideology, and a push to go that direction.
    Us folks with any kind of reasoning know that the problem with the economy is the leftie policies of this administration and his cohorts in Congress. As you so pointed out so well.
    Silly liberals. I still have this unsettling feeling that he and his commie buddies are gonna pull something prior to the 2012 elections to ensure his continued reign. I don’t think its gonna be pretty.

  3. When I used my ATM this morning, I got a receipt with a note on it that said, “Your withdrawl of $40 just caused unemployment to jump 0.0037%”.
