White House ‘Can’t Wait’ To Help Young People Get Summer Jobs
abcnews.go.com ^ | 1/5/12 | ABC.

President Obama will continue his campaign to bypass Congressional opposition to his jobs agenda Thursday by announcing a new partnership aimed at helping a quarter of a million young people find summer jobs.

The initiative, part of Obama’s “We Can’t Wait” campaign, is intended to replace a youth jobs fund that would have been enacted had Congress passed the president’s $447 billion jobs bill.

“America’s young people face record unemployment, and we need to do everything we can to make sure they’ve got the opportunity to earn the skills and a work ethic that come with a job. It’s important for their future, and for America’s. That’s why I proposed a summer jobs program for youth in the American Jobs Act — a plan that Congress failed to pass. America’s youth can’t wait for Congress to act. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment,” Obama said in a written statement.

to help young people get summer jobs

a.k.a. bribing them with public money in an election year. I have no doubt that these people "can't wait" to do that.

All these things; the recess appointments, the so-called mortgage assistance, summer jobs for the yutes, disregarding Congress...it all shows a clear desperation on the part of the Clown-in-Chief. He knows time is running out on his re-election chances and he’s throwing things up at the ceiling and seeing what sticks. Next move will be declaring martial law and suspending the elections “for the good of the country”.

The comments section is brutal. I thought I was reading a thread on Obummer for a moment.

People are wise to the Regime and their empty programs. This whole thing is shades of the Census Worker garbage a few years ago.

I assume this means he will fund Americorps with several billion dollars to pay thousands of street scum to help his campaign by threatening violence and intimidating the already compliant citizenry and media.

If he just can’t wait, he should just sign an executive order declaring that summer starts immediately. The MSM will happily report about the “unexpected” cold weather for the next 4-5 months.

Our New, Happy Life—Comrades! Attention:

All over Amerika this morning there were irrepressible spontaneous
demonstrations when workers marched out of factories and offices and
paraded through the streets with banners voicing their gratitude to Big Bro’
for the new, happy life which his wise leadership has bestowed upon us.

Obama CAN wait to produce a Budget for Congress.

Obama CAN wait to build a Keystone pipeline or open up drilling in ANWAR or provide real jobs for real people.

Obama CAN wait to close the borders so that returning US service people don’t have to compete for jobs with illegal aliens who’ll take a lower wage and accept cash.

Obama CAN wait for the USofA to go bankrupt.

But he can’t wait to sign up new 18 year old voters.

KING OBAMA .... Your Excellency ....

That’s words. Obama is a wordsmith, but what exactly is he going to do to fit these young people with jobs?

Hold his feet to the fire. Insist on knowing what he personally is going to do. Have him tell you what he will do to put young people into jobs. When he does that, I will believe him. Otherwise, he speaks a lot of jibberish.
