Posted on 09/08/2011 4:26:59 PM PDT by Jean S
Seeking to boost a slumping economy along with his hopes for re-election, President Obama unveiled his $450 billion jobs plan Thursday night in a highly-anticipated speech to a joint session of Congress.
The American Jobs Act contains a blend of infrastructure spending, tax relief, unemployment assistance and other aid. All the proposals are paid for with spending cuts although the president isnt expected to detail them until next week.
There should be nothing controversial about this piece of legislation, Obama said in excerpts released by the White House ahead of his speech. Everything in here is the kind of proposal thats been supported by both Democrats and Republicans including many who sit here tonight."

America needs WEALTH CREATION something government and the leftists can do nothing about except GET OUT OF THE WAY.
They polled that $300 billion was actually going to be passed and the blame would lay on Obama. It may be $600 billion by tomorrow. That way, when it doesn’t pass, they can blame it on the GOP.
The new super committee hasn't cut a dime off the current $14 trillion dollar deficit, so what "cuts" are going to pay for the latest Ponzi scheme?
Oh, and don’t forget, I hear it’s off to Bali in Nov for a “working vacation...” HAR, HAR
This is such a nightmare.
“”run hillary run””
If you got a gander at her at tonight’s speech, you might want to re-word that. She isn’t capable of running anywhere!
Oh! you meant - in 2012? From the looks of her, she’ll be in alcohol rehab before then...
How about just doing the spending cuts all by themselves?
Translation: This is Stimulus Part Deux. We know how well Part One worked out: no jobs created (in fact: jobs destroyed) and a higher unemployment rate than they said we'd have if it wasn't passed.
Exactly what was "new" about this political grandstanding?
>> President Obama unveiled his $450 billion jobs plan
By tomorrow it will be 600 billion, don’tcha know?
HIllary did have that worn out dyke look tonight.
When “keepin’ it real” goes wrong...
0 broke the economy and has no idea how to dig out of the whole he’s had congress dig.
I don’t belong to the party of NO, I belong to the party of H..L NO!
And the blue blood empty headed GOP leadership best not foist the RINO Romney on us. It would be trading a Marxist for a Socialist. Only a hair’s difference.
Please allow me to demonstrate to Mr. Hoffa the proper use of the term “SOB.” Hey you SOB in the Whitehouse, QUIT BUYING VOTES WITH MY TAX DOLLARS!!!
Rob social security, more money for union goons and unemployment benefits for the rest of your life.
Yeah, that'll get the economy going... NOT!
GOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDDD!! A vacation in Bali in November, Hawaii in December, that takes us to 2012 and those 2 vacations should take his poll numbers down into the teens, works for me. Enjoy Obongo and mau mau Mo.
Chris Matthews. He was seen walking bow-legged before the speech.
Good. Obama can kiss his ass goodbye. The idiot doesn’t know what drives currency. Get bent Barack.
Just wondering why Obama did not mention Oprah instead of Buffet? Wasn’t she the person calling him “the One” and endorsing his agenda? Could it be that Oprah has had a change of heart and is now against spreading her wealth?
Haha, come and get it.
Great photoshop; thanks for the laugh.

Those who swore to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to Posterity” further enslaving them.
Yes, he is our WORST president ever because he is intentionally destroying our country. He is not the worst because he is wrong, stupid, uninformed, etc. He is the worst because he is a traitor.
