Skip to comments.Obama's Jobs Speech Long on Promises, Weak On Substance (But pass it "right away"! /sarc)

The weak underbelly of President Obamas economic philosophy has been apparent for quite some time now. When faced with a choice between a social agenda and economic growth, choose ObamaCare.
When given the option of unions or economic growth, sit on trade agreements and empower the National Labor Relations Board.
Espouse the need to soak the rich and attack successful corporations even if your own party blanches at raising taxes on American small business.
Let the green agenda at the Environmental Protection Agency undercut growth imperatives.
In short, make the wrong call on policy tradeoffs consistently. But when the chickens come home to roost years of substandard growth and chronic high unemployment argue that what is really needed is a jobs bill or American Jobs Act. As if economic growth was a government program.
For all these reasons, I did not expect the president's speech Thursday evening to be a policy home run. After all, the specifics nearly all of which were leaked in advance were warmed-over retreads from previous jobs speeches.

I regard Obama as a bolus.
And I’d like to pass it....
There is no bill.
But pass it anyway.
I noticed when he said the republicans didn’t want to ever tax anyone more ever the applause was the longest!
don’t bills get written in committee rooms in the HOUSE, then go to the Senate, then signed into law by the President. Did he take a course of Civics in his high school in Indonesia?
BTW, the obolus was a Greek coin put into the mouths of the dead so that they could pay Charon the ferryman who would transport them to Hades.
There seem to be layers of meaning here.
He can have his people write the bill and then have any one of his lackey Rat members of the House or Senate introduce it there.
Krauthammer called it right before the speech;
Propose something undeliverable, then blame the republicans.
So many unanswered questions ...
Where does the money come from?
How are we going to "Made In America" when all the factories and plants are shut down, deteriorating or razed?
The mini musolini just dares anyone to go against him.
BTW .. he DID apologize to America and chastise Jimmy Hoffra jr ... right?
Did anyone notice in one line of his speech he stated that he somehow belongs to the congress?
Obama is so popular that I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if those 16,000 new IRS agents get an immediate transfer to the SS/
I was at work and didn’t hear the speech. Looks like I didn’t miss much. Same old lies and promises. Glad I missed it, it saved my tv from being kicked in.
The idiot hasn’t a damn clue. He can take his welfare and shove it. People work Mr. President, They don’t sit on their ass and watch you talk bullshit. Either get on board or jump the hell off.
This guy is a colleague of DHE.
The two other words are superfluous!
Empty suit goes well with the jackasses empty head!
