White House Hints at More Economic Speeches, Proposals Ahead
fox ^ | Fox

Posted on 09/02/2011 12:51:07 PM PDT by sunmars

In what could be a way of lowering expectations for next Thursday's big economic speech, aides to President Obama are privately spreading word that he will not present his entire jobs plan in his address to a Joint Session of Congress.

Aides say Thursday's speech will be part of a bigger plan the White House will roll out throughout the fall with the president hitting the road for speeches and town hall appearances. Aides have already confirmed that Obama will be traveling to California, Colorado, and Washington state for one three-day swing later this month that will include economic events as well as some fundraising.

The move could be a way to try and lower the stakes for Thursday's Joint Session appearance, but it could also be an attempt by the administration to show the president is trying to stay all over the economy heading into what will likely be an uphill re-election battle.

He will wait for the polling results after each partial release of “his plan”. Then after the polling results are in he can massage his message. Just pathetic.

More speeches. I guess that explains why the Dow is down 232.46 points right now.

That way if everybody hates the “plan”. He can come back a few days later and declare that was only a small part of the “real” plan, then let loose a few more trial balloons.

Politicians should continue making speeches alone, and stop tossing waves of extra federal funding to local, radical environmentalist, anti-family revenue-gobblers.

The people won’t wait for partial releases. They don’t have the time. They want jobs now but this guy can’t deliver and never could. All he is doing is running a campaign at tax payers expense.

As George Stephanopoulous once remarked, when he was part of the Clinton Administration:

To a Democrat, SAYING something about a problem, is the SAME THING AS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT A PROBLEM.

So, the Liberal Media will SWOON, the Dems in Congress will heap praise to the skies and the Dem Base will wet their pants in joy.................

This is pure campaign BS. He is going to counter the republican primary via this “joint session campaign kickoff.”

Hope the Pubbies don’t fall for this.

A crisis requiring the convening of congress should require the man to lay out the situation in its entirety.

That’s like FDR saying, “Dec 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy. The Japanese....sorry folks...next installment on the campaign trail, later on.”

NBC: Stay Tuned to Learn what the Japanese have Done

ABC: FDR Firm about...Installments of Information

Fox Poll: Installment Approval Rating: (1) Are you eager to read the next installment in a series of magazine stories, (2) Have you ever read an installment in which the president is mentioned? (3) Do you consider different radio stations to be separate installments? (4) Have you ever had new equipment installed in your house?

Me thinks Obama is a speechaholic. What the heck else can the guy do? He is worthless at anything other than community organizing, riding easy street, and running for the presidency. At least when he is fired, he'll always have his teleprompters as a keep sake. Oh I guess not they belong to the federal government.

That will be like a crack head without his crack pipe. Not going to be a pretty picture. He'll go through withdrawal. Would love to do a cartoon where he is using them at home with the family. Probably already been done though.

1. Focus like a laser on jobs.

2. Declare before your vacation, that just after your vacation he will reveal is jobs plan.

3. Concoct a political farce to have a joint session of congress on the day the republicans have a long planned debate.

4. Revealing yourself to be acting like a junior highschooler, you get rolled by the Speaker of the House.

5. Pouting, you then tell the country that you plan to only give a part of your plan to the joint house/senate speech, thus proving that you called the leadership of the country together for crass political reasons, not giving a shit about employment in this country.

6. ....saying you will slowly reveal it during the fall campaign, thus again, proving you are a stupid, witleww, mindless, nitwit who only care4s aout his reelection, and revealing that he, the president, thinks this country if filled with morons for his subjects.

7. The national nightmare continues.

So now we get the “plan” in a form equivalent of a chinese water torture, drip by drip as he vascillates, trial balloons and pivots into whatever the polls tell him. What a guy.

Take the long weekend to dream up a few more ploys, diversions and speeches. Maybe he can write the two word speech I’m praying to hear...”I resign.”

It's worse. The Obummer administration is politicizing the jobs issue and trying to "not waste a crisis" that it has created.

PS: The same can be said on Social Security and Health Care.

This arrogant fool is pushing even his most ardent supporters over the edge. I hear it in my brief flirts with lib talk radio. Oh, I know they won’t be changing their votes. They may well sit out, though, principled bunch that they are/s. The night of the speech-schedule change, I couldn’t believe it. 95% of his supporters expressed “camel’s back” total disgust w/0bama. And the ones who still supported him?

OMG, talk about drooling, babbling psychos.

No need to interfere with this, not at all. This (the speech snafu) is perhaps the only time I have seen 0bama supporters able on their own to be able to figure out what what an absolute goofball move it was. The retention of the Bush tax cuts sort of produced this kind of reaction, but nothing like this. Very entertaining.

His “jobs plan” is to keep oodles of White House speechwriters and proposal developers fully employed.

If you’re a talented writer of fiction, I hear there are plenty of openings.

Apply at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington, DC.

In other words, he has no plan for jobs.

The only thing he's ever been good at is campaigning, so....he hits the road. Off to the campaign! Rev up those tax payer paid buses (because no one is voluntarily donating)....
"Hope! Change!"

There is no problem a socialist can’t fix with a mediocre formulated speech.
Especially, if the speaker doesn’t have to answer for any part of it.
It’s what are country needs right now.. more talk less action..Oh, and more spending.
The problem is obvious..we haven’t spent ENOUGH.

I'm guessing the spin will be: "Look at how hard he's working to turn the economy around.......that's why he's talking about it in speech after speech........ He's so focused on this issue because he knows how much the American people are concerned about this.......yada, yada, yada"

In England, in the early 1800's there was a wonderfully deranged prophetess named Joanna Southcott.

Amongst her many wild acts of prophecy, which included predicting that at the age of 64 she would give birth to the "Shiloh of the Messiah" (whatever that might be) she left behind a sealed wooden box of prophecies to be opened after her death.

This became known as Joanna Southcott's Box. It was bequeathed to a ungrateful nation with the instruction that it be opened only at a time of national crisis, and then only in the presence of all twenty four bishops of the Church of England - who were to spend a fixed period of time beforehand studying Southcott's prophecies.

Well, it is a new millennium, and Obama is even more fey and ridiculous than Southcott. He is directly responsible for the national crisis, and at this time of financial peril he is, over the course of a few months going to impart a series of partial and fragmentary revelations on how to fix it. All we mortals have to do is collect the texts of his inspired teachings and somehow make sense of them!
