Ohioans fry in high heat wave and Obama's failed promises
By Kevin Fobbs

President Obama brought his political bandwagon to Ohio this week and with it a whole tub filled with broken promises, failed employment creation schemes, and a an anemic jobs report from the U. S. Labor Department on Friday, which reported that America's employers created only 80,000 in June, which forecasts that the nation's economy is stalling out.

So here comes President Obama with yet another vague set of undeliverable promises to Ohio voters, in the hope that one of these flawed ideas will not die on the vine, much like the others have over the past several years. Ohio, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has approximately 425,782 residents who are unemployed. This amounts to 7.3 percent of the state's population, still searching for jobs that Obama's political "Hope and Change" anthem has not delivered upon.

In most presidential campaign years these type of failed political deliverables would have left the political pundits free to whack away at the limping presidency of the incumbent, yet, unlike former President Jimmy Carter, anemic ability to articulate a half way credible defense, Obama is a seasoned wordsmith.

As such, Obama has left many Ohioans, and Americans who have sipped the Kool-Aid flavored political drink , hearing only his attacks on the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and not targeting their attention on a sagging economy and his failing attempts to blame all things not accomplished on President Bush.

Well, Ohio and America is not going to keep drinking from the tainted waters of this political well for long. They understand that the summer heat wave which is baking Ohioans is not baking their brains. Nor is the heat diminishing their ability to make a distinction between staged political stopovers in voter rich areas like the Toledo suburb of Maumee, in Sandusky, and Parma, and their own misery resulting from his economic policies.

No matter how many times the Obama blame train makes its way through the well charted union voter territory of Ohio, voters in this state and others across the nation still can count. The hard facts are clear, Retailers in Ohio and America have sliced a total of 5,400 jobs in June, and even the manufacturing sector which has always been a tremendous engine for growth only added a mere 11,000 jobs.

So where does that leave the Obama failed promises political bus tour as it continues to make its way through Pennsylvania and other states? Well, when a train runs out of coal, the only thing left is steam. And unfortunately for Obama's campaign, Ohioans understand that you cannot pay your mortgage or car payment with steam, or "Hope and Change" and "Forward" slogans.

Wait until November, and let's see how Ohioans vote Obama into a new scenario called going "Forward" to the unemployment line, because he has "Changed" his residence due to an election result which was not what he "Hoped" for.

Let me know what you think:
