The unemployment level may be at an 18-year low, but it’s not exactly like the Democrats are giving the president or Republican-controlled Congress any credit for it. If anything, they’re downplaying it.
The occasion of the May jobs report — 3.8 percent unemployment, lowest black unemployment in the history of the statistic — was met not with glee by Nancy Pelosi but instead with an airing of grievances.
So, what did conservative actor and Twitter legend James Woods do? Well, first he attacked Pelosi and the Democrats, who he said were following a “strategy … based on welfare, illegal immigration, and taxing those who work and create.”
And then, he reminded Twitter users about what the past administration said about jobs — with a not-safe-for-work meme.
In fact, it’s so not safe for work, we’re not republishing it, but feel free to check it out here. (Bet you laugh out loud.)
Woods was referring to remarks Obama made during a town hall-style meeting during the 2016 campaign in Elkhart, Indiana.
During the meeting, one worker said, in reference to the Carrier plant job losses, that Obama was “doing a lot of things, but in Indianapolis, there’s nothing there for us.”
“I mean, what’s next? I mean, what can we look forward to in the future as far as jobs, employment, whatever? Because all of our jobs has left or in the process of leaving, sir,” he asked.
After Obama touted his economic record, he then noted that “those folks who’ve lost their job right now because a plant went down to Mexico, that isn’t going to make you feel better.
“And so, what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now, because some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back. And when somebody says — like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for — that he’s going to bring all these jobs back, well, how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do?”
Well, apparently, 3.8 percent unemployment kind of says he does, especially after the dead cat bounce that was the “recovery” during the Obama years. Of course, any good economic news is attributable to the Obama administration by former Obama administration officials, but any retraction of the “magic wand” remarks seems unlikely.
Thankfully, we have James Woods and his memes to remind us that we could be dealing with Hillary Clinton and the Democrats’ ideas regarding job creation and wealth.
We saw where eight years of that got us. It turns out that simply reversing course from that was the only magic wand the president and GOP needed.
