In my January letter, I warned readers that the only job Obama was certain to create is the "snow job."
As sure enough, Obama`s 3 to 5 million promised new jobs (depending on when during his campaign he was lying to us) are nowhere in sight. Instead the U.S. unemployment rate is approaching 10 percent.
Worse, Obama`s chief economic advisor, Christina Romer, predicts that unemployment will increase into 2010. [Obama Advisor Sees Unemployment Rising Until 2010, by Joshua Brustein, New York Times, May 10, 2009]
As bad as the economic news is for unemployed Americans, it gives the GOP its best chance to make meaningful gains in the 2010 Congressional elections and build a foundation for recapturing the White House in 2012.
Amakua writes that he is one of Hawaii`s "few" natives not completely taken in by the "Obama hype".
Peter Brimelow writes: I agree with this analysis, but it irritates me that the GOP might benefit, for the reasons laid out here by our Ellison Lodge. Sometimes, I just think we should go to the generic term "American Party"—maybe the GOP, maybe not.
