So last week, in the Rose Garden, President Obama paraded out three jobless folks, using their plight to implore Congress to extend unemployment benefits.
One of them was a delightful woman named Leslie Macko.
Here’s what he said about her.
“We need to pass it for Leslie Macko who lost her job at a fitness center last year and has been looking for work ever since because she eligible for only a few more weeks of unemployment, she’s doing what she thought she’d never have to do. She’s turning to her father for financial support.”Well, our President was right – she did lose her job (giving facials!), but it might have been for good reason. It occurred one month after she pleaded guilty to felony prescription drug fraud, in March 2009.
What is it about this administration that brings out the stupid in people? Seriously!! He is making a big enough fool of himself WITHOUT the help of his idiot staff. It's not the president's job to look into subjects before making speeches but with his track record so far... if I were him... I would start.
