#OBAMAJOBSFAIL: “How Many Pivots Until You’re Called For Traveling”

RNC Communications - August 3, 2011

In case you missed, please find below some of the coverage of the President’s most recent “pivot” to jobs. As MSNBC’s Chuck Todd said earlier today, “I feel like my head is spinning.”

What They’re Saying…

ABC’s Jake Tapper: “How Many Pivots Until You're Called For Traveling?” (Jake Tapper, Twitter Feed, 8/3/11)

  • Tapper: " Plus, as ABC's Jake Tapper noted yesterday, "For the last two and a half years here as the White House correspondent for ABC News, it feels like every couple of months I am reporting that the White House is announcing that they are pivoting to a jobs agenda, and something else happens." (ABC’s “The Note,” 8/3/11)

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd: “How many times, though – I feel like my head is spinning how many times, ‘this is the time the White House was gonna to pivot to jobs.’ I mean it is it is sort of a recurring thing. What is it that he can do?” (MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown,” 8/3/11)

MSNBC’s Mike Vaquiera: “Well, it's been frustrating to say the least for the president. All along the president has tried to focus on jobs. We have heard of the hard pivot. We’ve heard of ‘Recovery Summer’. That wasn’t this summer that was last summer. And as a matter of fact, just about a year ago yesterday, exactly a year ago yesterday, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner had an op-ed in The New York Times that said quote ‘Welcome To The Recovery.’ So, here we are again.” (MSNBC’s, “Jansing And Co.” 8/3/11)

Politico: “The Eternal Pivot” “And the story of the Administration is, in no small part, one of a constant attempt to pivot formally to jobs. Emily and I identified what seem like six really attempts at it, with the seventh starting now …” (Ben Smith, “The Eternal Pivot,” Politico, 8/2/11)
