YEP....this is ONE of THOSE battles in this WAR....
Obama: Pass jobs bill without ‘division or delay’= The madness of King George!
What is the president’s strategy here?
He has to know that its going nowhere fast, and probably won’t make it to a vote in House.
Yet, his shrill advocacy of a DOA bill continues as if it the thing could ever possibly pass in this Congress.
Problem is that no one on either side of the isle, is rushing to write or co-sponsor a bill...hmmm...
This might prove to be quite embarrassing to the obummer.
Has he even found a Dem to introduce HIS bill in the House yet?
If not, that would be a worse embarrassment than his previous bill getting zero votes in the Senate a few months ago.
That is bad when his own party members see his legislation as too toxic to handle.
>>”The No. 1 issue for the people I meet is how we can get back to a place where we’re creating good, middle-class jobs that pay well and offer some security,” he said.<<
It is seeping into “Peoria” that the gummint is NOT the way to create those jobs. Most people think this won’t work. Many people think this will make things worse.
This is DOA and barry’s childish passive-aggressive “if nothing happens it is THEIR fault” blame game has no more currency than the race card his proxies play all the time.
Blah blah blah....Idiot says something....blah blah blah.....
Quick, for the good of the USA!
Already wrote to Sen. Toomey. The other two from my state are lost causes.
At a fundraiser in DC on the 15th of this month, the usurper-in-chief claimed that this bill would create 1.9 million jobs. The bill costs a half a billion dollars so each job would cost over $250,000 per job. What a deal! /s/
Typical whinyass commie snotnose! “I waaaaant it nooooooow!” Knock off the whining Barry!!!
Why? At the moment, there is a Republican Majority in the House, and without some kind of quid pro quo, the level of interest in this bill is ZERO.
Like maybe, repeal the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act"? Defund EPA? Get the Senate off their duffs and pass a 2012 budget bill compatible with the Ryan version, as has already been passed by the House? How about, expediting a Balanced Budget Amendment through the Senate, and submitting it to the various states?
What's your move, Mr. President?
GoPM to Obama:
Shove it up your a$$ without division or delay.
Our master hath spoken.
That is a good question. But the current administration wants to continue using a failed policy that handicaps the private sector with regulation and higher taxes, adds to the debt, and expands government.
These are the very policies that led to current unemployment levels. Let's just raise taxes and continue to borrow and print money. Not so fast, Mr. President!
The Bill to Nowhere
He's frantically making speeches from the podium, but is not calling leaders to the WH for talks.
He'd rather do a 45 minute speech in front of the public than get dirty in an 8-hour nuts-and-bolts session in the back room.
Which bill? I had no idea a president had a say in writing legislation...in fact, if civics class serves me right, his duty is to execute laws passed in congress.
Can this “Constitutional scholar” please be clued in?
You hope that you can get the MSM to tank for you like Clinton did in 1996 but I and a great many others no longer watch the alphabet idiots and the only use I have for the Slimes and Compost is to wrap dead fish in. Saying the same mantra may work in some religious scenarios but a constant refrain of "Pass this Bill" starts making us say "Piss on this Bill" in response. The fact that you sat on this bill for weeks over your summer vacation adds to our contempt at your harangue!
