It is in now way Barack Obama’s fault that the country has been bleeding jobs and not creating new ones at a rate that satisfies the American people. Instead, it’s this crazy thing called “efficiency”, which is reducing the need for people to do certain jobs. And who benefits? Big corporations (definitely not the consumer. No way.)! Look at ATMs! How could the President ever be expected to create jobs with ATMs taking away all the teller jobs!
“It’s not as fast as it needs to be to make up for all the jobs that were lost. The other thing that happened, though, and this goes to the point you were just making. There are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to be much more efficient with a lot fewer workers,” the President said.
“You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM,” he added.
“I didn’t know the banks were getting richer by screwing the good union jobs of tellers,” Glenn joked.
The guys then ridiculed Obama for blaming efficiency and capitalism for reducing jobs.
“No president in history has had to deal with these automated teller machines,” Stu joked.
“And for this poor guy it’s one thing after another and then people won’t let him they won’t cut him a break,” Pat said of Obama.
“But what about the businesses that have been created to create these job killing robots? They don’t exist,” Pat added.
Clearly, the President is just trying to pass the blame anywhere he can on the lack of job creation. Word on the street is that he plans to go after Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and other innovators who have put hard working Americans out of work by generating efficiency but completely failing to create new jobs.
