Obama holds a news conference. Holds up a teacher as an example of someone unemployed.
The guy actually has a job. Natch!
Just another lie from Obama. One of thousands.
President Obama used the story of a Boston teacher to push his jobs bill Thursday, even though the teacher has a job.
At the beginning of his White House news conference, President Obama told a story of how he recently met Robert Baroz of Wellesley, an English teacher in the city.
“I had a chance to meet a young man named Robert Baroz. He’s an English teacher in Boston who came to the White House a few weeks ago. He’s got two decades of teaching experience. He’s got a Master’s Degree. He’s got an outstanding track record of helping his students make huge gains in reading and writiing”, Obama said.
“In the last few years, he’s received three pink slips because of budget cuts. Why wouldn’t we want to pass a bill that puts somebody like Robert back in the classroom teaching our kids?” (Obama’s rhetorical question.)
But, Baroz is working in the Boston Public Schools this year as a middle school English teacher.
He told aides to President Obama that others have not been so lucky in finding a job. He did not meet directly with Obama.
He’s employed through a U.S. Department of Education teaching fellowship.

Steve Jobs last week. He was a brilliant man and a real innovator. Love ’em or not, Macs are good computers and their users are fanatical about them.
He was pushed out of Apple by the CEO he hired to run the company. I guess he thought a real businessman should be the CEO. How did that work out? Apple went into the toilet. Apple needed a real visionary like Jobs. He came back and once again, Apple took off. A real simple invention was the iPod. A thousand songs in your pocket. He revolutionized cell phones withe the iPhone.
What other ideas did he have swirling around in his brain? We’ll never know. He was only 56 years old. Way too young to die.
Like Bill gates, he was another college dropout who became incredibly rich at a very young age.
RIP Steve. We’ll miss you.

Two tourists were driving through Wisconsin. As they were approaching Oconomowoc,
they started arguing about the pronunciation of the town’s name.
They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch.
As they stood at the counter, one tourist asked the blonde employee.
“Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us?
Would you please pronounce where we are… very slowly?
The blonde girl leaned over the counter and said, Burrrrrr, gerrrrrr, Kiiiing.”
Yup. They’re just like the tea party.
IN PLAIN SIGHT: A protest attendee named Dave (above) relaxes in Zuccotti Park, where he said he’s been getting high while running from warrants.
The pot-smoking Occupy Wall Street and Do Drugs goons admit they are hiding from police.
The New York Post reported:
The criminals are crashing the party.
Lured by cheap drugs and free food, creepy thugs have infiltrated the crowd of protesters camped out in Zuccotti Park for Occupy Wall Street, The Post has learned.
“I got warrants. I’m running from the law,” boasted Dave, 24, a scrawny, unshaven miscreant in filthy clothes from Stamford, Conn. “I’m not even supposed to be here, but it’s as good a spot as any to hide.”
Wanted for burglary, the drug-addled fugitive said some of his hard-partying pals clued him in that the protest was a good place to be fed, get wasted and crash.
I’ve been smoking and drinking in here for eight days now,” said Dave, booze on his breath and his eyes bloodshot as he lay sprawled on a tattered sheet of cardboard. “I need to get some methadone. Every day, I wake up, and I’m f–ked up.”
Drugs can be easy to score — a Post reporter was offered pot for $15 and heroin for $10.
They’ve already fueled at least one violent incident, when a wasted nut job socked a medical volunteer in the face before others hauled the attacker away.

The kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very Excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a Talk on productive salesmanship.
Little Sally led off: “I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30 ,”
She said proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s Civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”
“Very good,” said the teacher.
Little Mary was next: “I sold magazines,”
she said, “I made $45 and I
Explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current Events. “
“Very good, Mary” said the teacher
Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn.
The teacher held her breath.
Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a
Box full of cash on the teacher’s desk . “$2,467,” he said.
“$2,467!” cried the teacher,
“What in the world were you selling?”
“Toothbrushes,” said Little Johnny.
“Toothbrushes!” echoed the teacher,
“How could you possibly sell
Enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”
“I found the busiest corner in town,”
said Little Johnny.
“I set up a Dip & Chip stand and gave everybody who walked by a free sample.
” They all said the same thing ,
“Hey, this tastes like dog crap!”
Then I would say,
“It is dog crap. Wanna’ buy a toothbrush?”
“I used the Obama approach of giving you something shitty for free,
and then Making you pay to get the taste out of your mouth.”

(NY Post) — The 9/11 imam Anwar al-Awlaki may be dead, but his old mosque is still open for business and remains a dangerous breeding ground for terrorists — and it’s right in the president’s back yard.
Nothing much has changed since 2002, when Awlaki voluntarily left the pulpit of the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center in the Washington suburbs of Falls Church, Va.
It maintains the same radical leaders who hired him, and the same owners — even the same fax number that investigators believe 9/11 planner Ramzi Binalshibh used to send instructions to Awlaki and key hijackers he aided there. An unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center attack, moreover, still leads prayers there.
In 2001, while Awlaki was preparing the hijackers for their martyrdom operation, Abdul-Malik raised the banner of Palestinian jihad, saying it’s within Islamic law to “blow up bridges” and other infrastructure. “You can do all forms of sabotage,” he said at a US conference held by a Hamas front group, while cautioning against killing “innocent” people.
Three years later, a founding mosque member was arrested for allegedly casing the Chesapeake Bay bridge for possible attack. Ismail Elbarasse was released on $1 million bond after Dar Al-Hijrah leaders put up their homes as collateral.
After Awlaki fled the country, Abdul-Malik told me in an interview he saw nothing wrong with Awlaki’s sermons encouraging Muslims to become martyrs.

Proving once again he is incapable of taking responsibility for any wrong doing or accepting blame for his mistaken policies, Obama spoke before Congress and blamed Bush, the Europeans, the Japanese, gas prices, etc. for the lousy shape of our economy.
President Barack Obama urged Congress to act on his jobs plan Thursday, saying it was needed to protect the United States from another economic downturn.
Obama acknowledged that “there is no doubt” that economic growth has slowed and that the economy is “weaker now than it was at the beginning of the year,” when people were more optimistic.
The Japanese tsunami; the Arab Spring, which drove up gas prices; and economic problems in Europe have caused concerns, he added.
“And we did not help in Washington with the debt ceiling debacle,” he said.
Obama said many of the problems the economy faces predate the financial crisis, as middle-class families have seen their wages and incomes remain flat despite rising costs.
“So folks have been struggling not just for the last three years. They’ve been struggling for over a decade,” he said. “We have to take action that is big enough to meet the moment.”

What we can learn from the Obama Regime’s failure to get on the same page, besides that it is incompetent, is that defending the country from foreign incursion is seen as a strictly political issue.
In front of one group they pretend to defend our sovereignty; in front of another they pretend not to. Despite being the first responsibility of any national government, our border defense consists primarily of Obama’s spin, gestures, and lies.

Leave it to Pelosi ( AND Obummer ) to “God bless” a group of godless leftists.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday praised the thousands of “Occupy Wall Street” protesters crowding New York City and other cities across the nation.
“God bless them for their spontaneity,” Pelosi told reporters. “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”
The comments from Pelosi, the top Democrat in the House, came after President Barack Obama embraced the protesters in a nationally televised news conference, saying their furor would “express itself politically in 2012 and beyond.”
