Politics: The president tells building-and-trades union workers that Republicans have blocked multiple bills putting them to work, even as he blocks an oil pipeline their former union chief supported.
President Obama may have thought he was preaching to the choir when he addressed the AFL-CIO Building and Construction Trades Department Legislative Conference on Monday, blaming Republicans for blocking his attempts at job creation.
But he forgot one of the cardinal rules of public speaking know your audience.
"I've said now is the time to do this, interest rates are low, construction workers are out of work ... and time after time, the Republicans have gotten together and they've said no," Obama told a packed ballroom at the Washington Hilton.
Left off the teleprompter was the fact that he was speaking to a union group, one of many that has endorsed the union-job-creating Keystone XL pipeline, an issue he dodged in his speech.
"For America's skilled craft construction professionals, any discussion of the Keystone XL project begins and ends with one word: JOBS," Mark Ayers, past head of the group, wrote in the Huffington Post last November. He noted that "the Keystone pipeline represents the prospect for 20,000 immediate jobs, and as many as 500,000 indirect jobs via a strong economic multiplier effect."
Ayers added that "roughly 14% of the American construction workforce is unemployed," a number "significantly higher" than the national average, which has remained above 8% for 38 straight months, a post-Depression record.

I think 0bama is coming apart at the seams.
He’s forgetting who he’s lying to about what.
The parallel between Obama and Hitler continue. Hitler told everyone what they wanted to hear, he lied to everyone, he made outlandish promises, he got congress to toe the line, he had the SA and SS, Obama has the occupy movement, he took advantage of economic slump, and it goes on.
He must have read Mein Kampf.(sp?)
Words have meaning.
But a job trumps hope and change.
After 4 years this is news?
If he’s talkin’, he’s lyin’!!!!
That is sort of the difference. You don’t have to remember who you told the truth. You best remember who you lied to and about what.
His Czars did, he's not that smart. But as you say, he mirror images Hitler and Mussolini.
“...a pervasive pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others that begins in childhood or early adolescence and continues into adulthood.”
I should have added that Obama does not care about lying. He knows that the MSM will never challange him.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The BIG LIE method is alive and well in America in 2012. Who knew?
Challenge him? Not only will they never ‘challenge’ him, they purposely and actively cover For him. It makes me sick!
The media is the only reason this POS is in the white House.
It's an interesting dynamic, because the media believe that they are part of the administration; but is hasn't occurred to them that participation is not voluntary, and that they are mere disposable chattel.
