Do You Feel the Panic?

Do you feel the panic? I do. Barack Obama promised to roll out “new ideas” to boost growth and spur hiring next week as he embarks on economy-focused trips with less than two months until congressional elections.

Armed with what he called “positive news” on the jobs front after the Labor Department reported yesterday that private payrolls climbed 67,000 in August, more than forecast, the president will travel to Wisconsin and Ohio to promote his economic policies, which Republicans argue are ineffective and have added to record budget deficits.

Unless some miracle happens and until the public becomes convinced the Obama policy is working and that the economy is improving measurably and that jobs are being created -- it doesn’t matter how many speeches the president gives promising to fix the economy, it just ain't gonna work.
