OBAMA'S JOBS BILL WON'T BE READY UNTIL NEXT MONTH, AFTER ANOTHER VACATION...
Los Angeles Times ^ | 9/19/11 | Andrew Malcolm

Posted on 09/19/2011 8:40:22 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

Everybody remembers the urgency of President Obama's attitude toward the awful jobs situation.

Back in early August, Obama said the jobs situation was so urgent that he was going to give another speech about it -- in a month or so, in September after his vacation on Martha's Vineyard.

And then in September the president announced he would give his major jobs speech to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7. But he neglected to check with congressional leaders first. And they suggested the 8th. So, since it was their House, the 8th it was.

"Tonight," the president said in the first 34 of his 4,021 words to a national television audience that night, "we meet at an urgent time for our country. We continue to face an economic crisis that has left millions of our neighbors jobless, and a political crisis that has made things worse."

The speech got panned as another political campaign one with Obama announcing, in effect, that.... ...since the first stimulus spending plan of $787 billion hadn't really worked, maybe another $447 billion stimulus spending plan would.

This is the kind of thinking that can make sense within Washington. But since "stimulus" has become a laugh line, he didn't use that word anymore.

And, hey, the debt ceiling had been raised to $16 trillion. (Speaking of which the president speaks on the debt this morning in another speech because he's a Real Good Talker.) So why not spend a half-trillion more to look like he's doing something about the terrible jobs situation with 14+ million unemployed?

...

The president was in such a hurry to get this new spending going, everyone remembers, that during that address he said the phrase "right now" seven times. ..

Why not just wait until February 2013, so it won’t be “Obama’s Jobs Bill” anymore?

LOL Thanks!

President Barack Obama will call for new deficit cuts of $3.0 trillion but warn Republicans he will veto any bill that trims healthcare for the elderly without hiking taxes on the rich

Don’t say that. Commies also hate the nazis. So call them a bunch of commies. They can’t disagree because that’s what they are but they’ll be put in a bind because they know everyone else hates commies.

LBJ got away with this sort of blatantly political manipulation because there were 3 networks, no internet, and he had successfully implemented the Fairness Doctrine.

Someone needs to tell Barry that it’s not 1968 anymore.

Congress should defund the President. So far he has spent more time at the golf course than he has in the office.

And pull the plug on Michelle’s million dollar vacations every few months. Gets back from one and immediately starts planning the next big boondoggle at the taxpayers expense. Apparently she’s a big follower of “make hay while the sun shines.”
