    Yes, Obama was specifically wrong in citing ATMs as one of the "changes in the economy" that he blames for continued unemployment, seeing as how they've been around since the 1970s. This was a true "Let them eat cake" moment for him, and it really shows how out of touch he is on the factors at work. Or it shows that he's trying pull a fast one on us. Either way, we don't buy it.

    Obama's a genius! Why he's a Constitutional Scholar! Just check his school transcripts... oh wait, never mind.

    LOL! I have to laugh when I read threads (and stories) like these. I ALWAYS have a suspicion that there's some kind of misrepresentation goin on. And I am right again.

    Obama blamed machines LIKE ATMs. It's a knock on both automation and productivity increases of the last few years which both permit employers to perform more task and complete more work while hiring fewer people.
