Obama Calls for 'Common-Sense Policies' to Move Economy
By Devin Dwyer | ABC News 16 hrs ago
Continuing to cast himself as an activist president defying slim odds for election-year legislative compromises, President Obama in his weekly address pushes "a few common-sense policies that would make a difference" with the economy.
"There are things we can do - right now - to help create jobs and restore some of the financial security that so many families have lost," Obama says.
The list of initiatives - which the White House has billed as Congress' "To-Do list" - includes elimination of tax breaks for companies that outsource; a mandated expansion of mortgage refinancing eligibility; tax credits for clean energy companies and small businesses that hire new workers; and creation of a new veterans job corps.
The Democratic proposals have received little or only lukewarm support from Republicans. But Obama has continued to tout them at a series of official events in an attempt to appeal to voters.

Didn't the omnibus porkulus do all that?
Common sense it is? All right!!! I can grok that! Common sense says resign immediately Barack. First, admit your policies have been disastrous, and you don’t know the first thing about economics. Then get out please.
Obama actually makes a vote for Romney, as bad as he is, an act of common sense.
The best common sense policy would be if His Excellency would resign.
How about reduce the tax on ammo? Oh wait they are at max production now. Or how about the tax on guns? Oh wait they are at max production now.
I guess O’dumby has done some things to increase the economy.
Surrrrrrrrrrrrrrre, just give us a laundry list of what you want and we’ll run it right through congress- like that healthcare thing you never mention...,
Well some of the things on his To Do List have already been done and they did not work he is such a liar but his base is stupid
“tax credits for clean energy companies and small businesses that hire new workers; and creation of a new veterans job corps.” these should have been crossed off his list already tried and failed
Sorry folks, I’ve never had a job, never made one dollar on my own, never done anything constructive, in fact, never done anything but stir the pot. So, my idea now is to raise taxes so the government can continue to spend money it doesn’t have and create anger and hatred where none exists. I’m pretty sure your all as stupid as I think you are and pretty sure there are enough of you idiots out there to elect me again. Just remember “from those according to their ability, to those according to their needs”. If we all pull together, we can have a country just like California.
‘There are things we can do - right now - to help create jobs and restore some of the financial security that so many families have lost’-————
umm he could do them now but not for the last 3 years...? create jobs AND RESTORE some of the financial security....
But I thought the media said, Obama couldn’t do nuttin about it!?
can do-right now- BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
So the last 3 years of watching American’s suffer, was just Obama having fun?
Oh wait, he wasn’t watching. Busy. Golf. Celebrity parties, vacations, fundraising....
“Common sense solutions”? I see brocko is now dipping into hilary’s lezicon for slogan ideas.
3.5 Years later?
0bama been holdin’ out on us!
Cease trade with China and send the Illegals back.
“...to help create jobs and restore some of the financial security that so many families have lost,”
He’ll probably never get through his thick, socialist head the following simple facts:
1. No one ever starts a business to create jobs
2. The only reason an entrepreneur starts a business is to make money, i.e. profit.
3. He will hire people to work for him only if they help him make more money, i.e. more profits.
Conclusion: If you want to create more jobs don’t demonize profits and businesses that make money, instead praise them and create an environment that fosters successful companies rather than tear them down.
Obama doesn’t know what common-sense is, and he certainly wouldn’t know what it is when applied to legislation.
Americans elected a ghetto president and he saddled us with a ghetto economy. Don’t talk to me about “common sense”.
I’m all for common sense!! Let us all use common sense on election day and send his a## packing!
He's got the instructions right there - in his little red book!
I thought he's been doing those things for 3-1/2 years and all they've done is destroy...
I don't believe one could choose measures that would harm the economy more. Once again, the consumer and tax payers are forgotten, eliminated from the equation, and we'll pay the freight.
If you believe what a liberal says when they start talking about “common sense,” your next stop will be a Cambodian rice paddy, or wherever that flavor of liberal decides to send you for their pet final solution.
Concentration camps were only common sense for National Socialists, city dwellers learning to work in rice paddy killing fields only common sense for the Kmer Rouge. FEMA camps for us?
