Amidst North Korea's threats new jobless fears, Obama works to...help Pelosi
As the North Korea nuclear threat heats up, President Obama stayed focused on what matters most to him --- winning the House in 2014.
During a California fundraising swing, he called Rep. Nancy Pelosi a "visionary" leader who "never lets ideology cloud her judgment."
Her hometown crowd of San Francisco ate it up.
Raising millions to get Nancy her gavel back, the President told the swooning Left Coast attendees: "Realistically, I could get a whole lot more done if Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House." Read: carbon tax, wealth tax, more EPA regulations, beefed up healthcare penalties, etc.
As the president collects gobs of cash during this chapter of his perpetual campaign, we are left with Joe Biden minding the store.
And the North Korean crisis isn't the only problem brewing, we now face renewed headwinds on the economic front as well. Jobless claims spiked to a 4-month high, to 385,000 last week.
CNBC reports that this is the third straight week of increase in unemployment claims: "Coming on the heels of data on Wednesday showing private employers added the fewest jobs in five months in March, the [Labor Dept. report] implied some weakening in job growth."
The fundamental responsibilities of his office -- economic stewardship, foreign policy threats -- hardly seem to be top priorities for President Obama. His passion is devoted to achieving the liberal social utopia: immigration amnesty, gun control, and climate change regulations.
He needs a majority in both Houses of Congress to get there.
I imagine Obama thinking: Hagel can handle that little North Korea matter. And Carney can wave off any concerns about a stalled recovery.
And when the Republicans give us trouble, I'll just remind them that the election is over.
