Obama Spokesman:President will not Introduce "Specific" Details on Jobs,only "Some Reasonable Ideas"
Pundit Press ^ | 8/24/11 | Aurelius

Posted on 08/24/2011 6:06:20 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

...This month, before going on a vacation to a luxurious estate on Martha's Vineyard, Mr. Obama tried to deflect criticism on his handling of the economy by stating that he had a "very specific" plan to announce on jobs come September. However, an Obama Spokesman has downgraded expectations for the President's speech, saying that the President merely will offer "some ideas" next month...

Before leaving for Massachusetts, the President emphasized that his "laser-like focus" was still on jobs, even as he swam and built sand castles. President Obama unambiguously stated:

"I'll be putting forward, when they come back in September, a very specific plan to boost the economy, to create jobs, and to control our deficit. And if they don't get it done, then we'll be running against a Congress that's not doing anything for the American people, and the choice will be very stark and will be very clear."

Despite this, however, it now appears that President Obama will not be terribly specific when it comes back. The newly added ambiguity comes from an Obama-spokesman who detailed what the President will discuss in his speech.

Mr. Obama will offer “some reasonable ideas that can have a tangible impact,” White House deputy Josh Earnest stated. “There will be some ideas that the President will lay out in this speech... new ideas... I think [Republicans] will find a lot of things in the President’s speech that they'll like,” he added.

Holy cow, just another ‘I’ve got some great ideas....’ speech...with absolutely no clue whether they’ll work, how they’re implemented, who and how anybody will benefit from them or even what the expected outcomes will be...

And when they turn into krap not worth a hill of beans, it’ll be everybody else’s fault.

Standard Oblame-o modus operandi...

Should anyone be surprised?

All through his campaign he said he had a plan, but wouldn’t provide details. Upon election he said his administration was ‘working’ on plan. Now he’s still working on a plan & we know it will work as well as the last one.

Is it 2012 yet?!

So in other words, it will be more of the same. No plan, no specifics, just more noncommittal, unquantifiable bubble-headed feelgood hogslop delivered by an unqualified marxist-leaning dufus through the aid of teleprompters.

It is like Groundhog Day!

The backpedaling and spinning makes me dizzy.

He’s on vacation, he’s not on vacation, he’s got a specific plan, he’s just got ideas.

The whole place seems completely lost. They should just keep their mouths shut for a while and get some grownups in there.

I'm not sure that Obama has ever had a reasonable idea go through his head.

Walk to work. You'll slim down, get a little sun and save gas. Yes you might have to get up 3 hours earlier to get there on time...no matter...it's for the common good.

So for all the salary and bennies he and his first moose get ..we get in return

1. speeches with words that mean nothing
2. our country turned over to thieving communists who know nothing about the real world - despite the fact they think they know it all.
3. guilt trip giveaways/bribes of taxpayer money to Obama voters.
4. world apology tour and abdicating our place in the world.
5. credit downgrade due to insane spending.

If we survive this and become a decent upstanding country again and the whole truth is told, no one would believe we were stupid enough to elect these people.

A reasonable idea would probably find the inside of his head such alien territory, it would get out of there in a hurry. Either that, or it would get so lost it would finally just curl up and die!

The Obamas are a couple grifters, very base, and very annoying. Their affirmative action show has gone stale. They need to hit the road, Jack, and “don’t come back no more, no more....”

52.9% of the popular vote went for Obama. This amounts to about (69,456,897/~300,000,000 X 100%) 23% of the country. But the percent that gave him the election (~9,500,000/~300,000,000 X 100%) was about 3% of the country.

What’s this “we,” kemosabe? I didn’t vote for Obama, nor for any of the cesspool Democrats polluting the halls of government. The left were always quick to declare that GW Bush was not their president, so I am tossing back to them the same sentiment: Barky is not my president.

Omoslem’s agenda is simple:

#1 Slow up Whitey by crushing the economy.
#2 Steal Whitey’s stuff + give it to blacks.
#3 Hand power to the moslems + terrorists + union bosses.

Unfortunately, those 3 items add up to a major doucheing.

He doesn’t have a clue on how to create jobs in the private sector. His plan is to 1) get other people to work out specifics and take the responsibility; 2) make a list of people to blame when things go wrong.

Like - Joe, I want you to take charge of a committee to come up with a plan to produce 10 million new jobs in the next month and reduce unemployment to 5%. And I want the plan on my desk next week.

Who was the last President to receive 50 % or greater of the voter age population? IF that has ever happened then he would have received a majority of voter age Americans.

Latest, is that it won’t be reasonable or tangible ideas, but fleeting thoughts about jobs while sitting on the john ducking Moo and the brats.

Just words, just speeches.....

This idiot will serve up another warmed-over speech laying out some generalities and vague details with no specifics and then pillory Congress for not acting upon his “plan.”

It’s the ultimate redoubt of the Great “Present” Hope.

It will be lackluster. It will fall-flat on the already generally deaf ears of the general public who has become desensitized to the Obama TV appearance and it will only add to Barry’s now personna as a shallow suit who can’t connect.

I heartily await his “plan” as it will finally strip any credibility or sensibility the man has as a politician from the average citizen. His vapidness and hollowness will no longer be defensible or excusable from the socialists...
