David Axelrod, President Barack Obama's top political adviser, took to the airwaves this morning and claimed that none of last night's participants in the GOP presidential debate offered ideas on how to create jobs. Granted, none of them waved a stack of papers containing an unaffordable stimulus plan in front of the cameras, but all of them brought reality to the discussion by affirming that government does not create jobs it can only destroy them. That's a fact that the president and his cronies desperately hope the majority of the voting public doesn't understand.

First, President Barack Obama tried to characterize his political opposition as people more concerned with politics than country. Neither a new strategy nor one that hasn't worked before for other desperate candidates, but then he made the mistake of believing his own lies. The president's speech on Thursday night was tailored to bait the kind of politicians he claimed House Republicans are. But since they're not, Mr. Obama is left having to actually participate in solving the country's problems instead of engaging in the kind of negative political campaigning he prefers.

President Barack Obama made a speech today that was a preview of a speech he'll make on Thursday that, from all indications, will be a repeat of the same speech he's made many times before. Everyone who has paid even the slightest bit of attention has already heard his message for more government spending, more government borrowing and more government regulations. Obviously he is the one not getting the message that more speeches calling for more government is not what's needed and Thursday night may provide the next best opportunity to send it.

Not surprisingly one of the Republicans trailing badly in the race for the GOP presidential nomination is downplaying the importance of the polls that say he's trailing badly. But it's hard to imagine former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman will gain any ground when he discounts the current opinions of likely primary voters as "absolute nonsense".

President Barack Obama used his weekly radio address to engage in some political gamesmanship while calling for an end to political gamesmanship. Desperate to look like he's doing anything in light of yesterday's horrendous jobs report, the president used this morning's speech to once again claim there is a crisis looming and the Surface Transportation Bill will be allowed to expire putting 1 million workers in danger of losing their jobs if Congress fails to act. But the deadline for extension is weeks away and work on it is already well underway.
