GOP mocks Obama's new 'can't wait' slogan, tells Senate to act
By Pete Kasperowicz - 10/24/11 07:29 PM ET
House Republicans on Monday night mocked President Obama's new "we can't wait" slogan that he introduced in a Las Vegas speech earlier in the day.
Obama used the slogan to stress his plans to introduce an administrative effort to help people refinance their mortgages. The plan, to be run through the Federal Housing Finance Agency, is aimed at making an existing refinancing program available to more borrowers.
The plan and the "we can't wait" slogan is meant to show an administration attempt to help struggling borrowers without waiting for Congress to act. But Republicans turned it around to ask why Democrats are ignoring more than a dozen House-passed bills that would ease federal regulations on companies.
"In my opinion, this slogan is an odd choice, especially coming from the president and his party," Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-Pa.) said. "Right now, 15 different House-passed jobs bills, each reducing the red tape that is hindering small business, each removing obstacles to domestic energy production, are stuck in the Senate awaiting action from Democratic leadership.
"Mr. Speaker, the president is right: We can't wait," he said in response to the Senate's inaction.
Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) mirrored Thompson's remarks. "It's not that the Senate has voted these jobs bills down, the Senate just won't vote," Poe said. "To my friends down the hallway in the Senate, how about voting on these bills?"
Poe also came up with his own slogan for the Senate, which has struggled to pass much of its own legislation this year: "It's time for the Senate to pick a horse and ride it."
Then he should quit his bitchin'.
I “can’t wait” til Klownie the Kenyan is out in 12’.
The pubs need to become more vocal about their stance..just say it, uhbummer is a total waste , a liar, and cannot be trusted at any angle..his tax and spend policies are the cause of the issues and to hell with the POS POTUS..
“We can’t wait!”
You should have taken care of that before we left home.
Here’s my slogan......”can’t wait for him to be brought out in handcuffs”
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
It worked well for Adolf Hitler, Il Duce, Hugo Chavez, Idi Amin DaDa, Pol Pot, Francisco Franco, Salvador Allende, Daniel Ortega, Fidel Castro and a bunch of others.
It did not work out so well for those who allowed them to get into power.
