Obama Works Magic at Town Hall Meeting: Only 2,999,999 More Jobs to Create!

When Julio Osegueda set out to attend a town hall meeting hosted by President Obama in Fort Myers, Florida, on Tuesday, the 19-year-old burger flipper probably had no idea that the new president would immediately intercede on his behalf and work an instant miracle to resolve Julio’s employment problems.
As reported, in part, at the Oval (reference 1):
“It was quite a moment at the end of President Obama’s town hall meeting in Fort Myers, Fla., yesterday. As The New Press writes, 19-year-old Julio Osegueda “rocketed from a Cape Coral teenager who flips burgers for $7.85 an hour at a McDonald’s to an instant celebrity of sorts.”
“And he got a temporary job.
“After the event, the newspaper adds, Osegueda: Picked up another job — if just for a day — as the color announcer for the Fort Myers Miracle baseball team’s radio broadcast for its home opener April 10. The one-day gig typically pays $25, but the Miracle said the salary is negotiable.
“I’ll be ready,” he said about his debut.”
Julio’s experience confirms what levelheaded folk have been saying all along about the trillion-dollar joke that Democrats are trying to play on the American people.
Namely, any job created by government is certain to be very temporary, and not a cost-effective or common sense approach to the severe economic crisis our nation faces.
Nonetheless, after solving Julio’s job crisis, Obama quickly moved to solve the homeless mess left by George W. Bush.
As further reported at the Oval:
“Also during Tuesday’s town hall, a 61-year-old woman named Henrietta Hughes told the president that she and her 37-year-old son are homeless after having their house foreclosed. She asked for his help. Obama said he would, and his staff put Hughes in touch with local housing authority officials.”
Now THAT is bold and creative! Put the woman in touch with local housing authorities! Why the hell didn’t W. think like that?
The larger question: Isn’t helping kids find jobs and matching homeless people with local authorities the sort of task assigned to community organizers, and way beneath the pay grade of the President of the United States?
