The president has taken to the campaign trail to promote his American Jobs Act. Thats a good name for it: an act. Pass this bill now! he declared 24 times at a stop in Raleigh, N.C., and another 18 in Columbus, Ohio, and the act is sufficiently effective that, three years into the Vapidity of Hope, the president can still find crowds of true believers willing to chant along with him: Pass this bill now!
Not all supporters are content merely to singalong with the prompter-in-chief. In North Carolina, a still-devoted hopeychanger cried out, I love you!
I love you, too, said the president. But . . .
Oh, no, here it comes: conditional love. But, if you love me, youve got to help me pass this bill! Youd be surprised how effective this line is: I tried it on Darlene in the back of my Ford Edsel when I was 17 and we didnt get home till two in the morning.
Pass this bill now, or Ill say Pass this bill now! another two dozen times! With this latest inspiration, Obama has taken the post-modern phase of democratic politics to a whole new level. Pass this jobs bill? Simply as a matter of humdrum reality, there is no bill, it wont create any jobs, and it will be paid for with money we dont have. But the smartest president in history has calculated that, if he says the same four monosyllables over and over, a nonexistent bill to create nonexistent jobs with nonexistent money will be yet another legislative triumph in the grand tradition of his first stimulus (the original Dumb and Dumber to the sequels Stimulus and Stimulusser).
The estimated cost of the non-bill is just shy of half a trillion dollars. Gosh, it seems like only yesterday that Washington was in the grip of a white-knuckle, clenched-teeth showdown over whether a debt-ceiling deal could be reached before the allegedly looming deadline. When the deal was triumphantly unveiled at the eleventh hour, it was revealed that our sober, prudent, fiscally responsible masters had gotten control of the runaway spending and had carved (according to the most optimistic analysis) a whole $7 billion dollars of savings out of the 2012 budget. The president then airily breezes into Congress and in 20 minutes adds another $447 billion to the tab. Thats what meaningful course-correction in Washington boils down to: Seven billion steps forward, 447 billion steps back.
This $447 billion does not exist, and even foreigners dont want to lend it to us. A majority of it will be electronically created by the Federal Reserve buying U.S. Treasury debt. Dont worry, its not like printing money:

he has another debt ceiling extension and he can’t wait to spend it (preferably before the next election) so...
“pass this bill now”
or “pass this bill right away”
Does anyone else but me find it ‘odd’ that he uses this expression over and over “right away”
Does he speak before the same crowd of idiots everywhere he goes or do they round up a new pack of idiots for him.
Maybe we should add “pResident Double-down” to the list. When normal people discover that something doesn’t work they try to fix it so that it does. Failing that they move to something that will work.
pResident Double-down just keeps on doing the same wrong thing, hoping for a different result. I’ve heard that this was the definition of something.....now what wuz that? LOL
How is it he is not impeached for his horrendous disastrous condition he has purposefully gotten America in to now?
It has been purposefully accomplished and it is charging ahead daily
Do not sit and shake our head. PROTEST in an effective manner. IMPREACH this man. He has bent many rules and taken powers not designated. All for the destruction of America.
Why not pass a110% tax on all income and send it to him to see id he’ll sign it?
