Fail: Obama: ‘Step in right direction,’ ‘Don’t read too much into it’

As Twitchy reported earlier, the White House pulled the old “don’t read too much into it” when talking about the latest jobs report. Oh, yeah, and they have used the same line thirty times in just the past 32 months. Someone needs to recalibrate that teleprompter!

Twitter users immediately, and deservedly, began to mock the phrase.

I didn't read too much into any one jobs report, but added together their starting to form a picture of suckitude.

They also called out President Obama for his insanely out of touch “step in the right direction” remark.

@bccohan @rcmahoney Yeah yeah, step in the right direction, blah blah blah. Really? #doingjustfine

If Obama thinks this is "a step in the right direction" it means he's totally, hopelessly lost. #newGPS "@hale_razor: #StepInRightDirection"

This is a #StepInTheRightDirection, @BarackObama? I think you stepped in something, all right, because I can smell it from here.

When you start to walk from the bow to the stern of the Titanic, you're taking a #StepInTheRightDirection

The RNC was out in front with a rapid response.

Step in the right direction? No, champ. That will happen in November.
