Adler’s “Recovery Summer” Almost Over, Families Still Asking: Where Are the Jobs?

July 21, 2010

John Adler and Bernie Platt

The Obama White House promised that this would be a “recovery summer,” but as the days quickly fly by, New Jersey families are realizing that’s just more empty rhetoric from Washington, D.C. With news of New Jersey’s unemployment rate at 9.6 percent and midterm elections around the corner, it is abundantly clear that John Adler and his out-of-touch Democrat friends’ “recovery summer” is now turning into an autumn of discontent. House Democrats claimed their multi-trillion dollar spending agenda would produce results, but after eighteen months of broken promises and 2.5 million jobs lost, New Jersey families and small businesses are worse off than before. Now, after blowing his chance to lead New Jersey out of this jobless recovery, November’s midterm elections will serve as a referendum on his failed economic policies.

“A couple groups are especially unsettling for the president and Democrats. Less than one in five independents says the country is on the right track, and a plurality gives Obama negative ratings. In 2008, Obama carried the independent vote 52 percent to 44 percent.


“Obama captured 56 percent of women age 30 to 59, who also were major supporters of Democratic congressional candidates in 2006 and 2008. In the survey, more of these women in that age bracket say they think the economy is getting worse rather than better, and more believe that personally they are worse off than when Obama became president.”

(Albert R. Hunt, Economy Sets Up Democrats for Autumn of Discontent, Bloomberg, 7/18/20

More affirmation that the Democrats’ economic agenda is anti-business, major business leaders from across the country recently met to discuss a better path to economic recovery: 

“’We believe the cumulative effect of these proposals will help defeat the objectives we all share –  – reducing unemployment, improving the competitiveness of U.S. companies, and creating an environment that fosters long-term economic growth,’

wrote Ivan Seidenberg, the CEO of Verizon and the Chairman of the Business Roundtable, and James Owens, the CEO of Caterpillar and the Chairman of the Business Council.”


“The summit comes a day after the Chamber released a poll it conducted of over 300 small business owners, who expressed pessimism in the economy and the White House’s ability to turn it around. Of those polled, 71 percent said the job situation will stay the same or get worse in the next six months…Overall, 57 percent of small business owners polled “feel that this administration does not have a clear plan for creating jobs.

(Robert Hendin, “White House and Business Leaders: A Rocky Relationship,” CNS News, 7/13/2010)

“In the past eighteen months John Adler and his Democrat friends have taken their eyes off the ball and the economy has taken a turn for the worse as a result, putting the screws to both middle-class families and small businesses in the process,”

said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain.

 “With time running out on the Democrats’ ‘recovery summer,’ New Jersey families are once again forced to deal with high unemployment and more broken promises. Now, after failing to provide the fiscal discipline needed to create jobs and get the economy back on track, frustrated voters will use November’s election as a referendum on Adler’s failed economic policies.”

    One simple comment for John Adler and his 2 years of allegiance to the Tax and Spend Pelosi Liberal Democrat Agenda…John you can keep trying to buy votes with the extension of unemployment checks paid by just printing more money( instead of cutting liberal pork spending) and thus creating more DEBT and in the process KILLING the economy from ever coming back…BUT…we are not stupid…we do not believe your lies…we want JOBS…spending trillions on Union pay offs, pork barrel politic handouts, grand LIBERAL agenda SOCIALIST PROGRAMS…doesn’t cut it anymore with us! You spent trillions and in the process created enormous debt on our kids…and we got NO JOBS! YOUR FIRED!

    Get ready! You will be among the jobless in 2011…let’s see just how YOU like it!
