Texas engineer, whose wife sent Obama his résumé, still unemployed

Add "headhunter" to the list of jobs that Barack Hussein Obama has failed miserably at:

More than two months after President Barack Obama asked for Darin Wedel's résumé, the phone is quiet, e-mails are no longer flooding in and the long-sought-after job interviews -- which had begun to be scheduled -- have petered out

"Not even recruiting companies are calling anymore," said Jennifer Wedel, the Fort Worth mother of two who chatted online this year with Obama about her out-of-work husband. She says his job search has been hurt by a program to hire skilled foreign workers.

Jennifer Wedel, in a moment of false hope from a false prophet...

Obama, who said industry leaders have told him that the U.S. doesn't have enough high-tech engineers to meet its needs, ended up asking for Darin Wedel's résumé. .. "I did feel we got our hopes up a little," Jennifer Wedel said last week. "I mean, he's the POTUS. But it seems not even the leader of our country can get [Darin] a job."

Disappointed by a man who made rosy promises he couldn't keep?  A man who, despite his powers, is basically impotent when it comes to influencing events? A man who speaks eloquently and sincerely, yet turns out to be remarkably inflexible, uninteresting, and unintelligent?

Join the club, Jennifer...

Sorry about your predicament.  And sorry you wasted your time.  But going to Barack Obama for help getting a job is a bit like going to a faith healer to cure inoperable cancer.  Both will give you some hope, but once the good feelings fade away, will have proven to have given you no help whatsoever...
