Skip to comments.Obama's Latest Bailout Plan Summarized In 4 Words: "3000 Bucks For Thingamajigs"

For those who missed Obama's post-NFP sermon on Friday, here is a summary of the Keynesian-in-Chief's latest plan to fix the country: $3000 for everyone to buy "thingamajigs." We wish this was a joke.
The farce gets going 25 seconds in. (Video at link)
This stinks of desperation and panic. Obama's Big Banker Buddy Donators need another trillion dollar bailout, and he KNOWS he can never win by saying that.
After all, he famously said, "The ERA OF BAILOUTS IS OVER!".
Does anybody in the media recall this is what Bush did, and they villified him for it?? Or is the politically-correct DoubleThink too strong?
Also, does anyone remember that the REPUBLICAN Stimulus Plan was to give every TAXPAYER $5,000 in early 2009, instead of giving trillions to Obama's cronies as political payback?
just go back to $5.00 or a bottle of whiskey to buy votes
When Bush sent everyone $600, Michelle O snorted that all it would do is allow you to buy “a pair of earrings.” I guess that’s not as exciting as a thingamajig.
Was zer0 calling for $3k to every American household?
Blatant highway robbery, taking $6000 from every tax-paying household, to give $3000 to every [tax-paying/non-tax-paying] household. Net change to a tax-paying household: -$3000
And since whites are the ones paying nearly all the taxes... this amounts to backdoor reparations.

Well, y’know ... thingamajigs can be hard to find making them much more valuable than $600 earrings.
Whatchamacallit Maufacturers better get with the program, and give Obama some big bucks, lest the IRS,DOJ,EPA, and Jesse Jackson show up at the door.
I believe your calculator is correct.
My local Mercedes Benz dealership has a thingamajig for $85,000. Can You good folks buy me one? My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
BO...you are NOTHING without the inherited greatness provided by your stolen citizenship in the USA.
Left to your own devises you couldn't sustain yourself beyond the point of impovrishment and deprivation.
Stick your $3000 thingamajig up your a$$.
Clearly the president misspoke. He meant to say “doohickey.” I think we should cut him some slack.
Now WHAT could possibly cost $3,000 that needs to be replaced ON "one's furnace".....WHEN the average costs of a COMPLETE NEW FURNACE averages $3,000???
Just goes to show how out of touch, completely clueless, and a MORON our Community Agitator In Least (who has never had a "REAL" job and knows 0 about life much less economics) realllly is.
Did I mention a frickin IDIOT, to boot?
Try this, you can do it in your head or, in a pinch, on a slide rule:
3.11 x 10^6 * 3 x 10^3
Multiply 3.11 * 3 and get 9.33
Add the exponents together to get 10^9
You’ll get 9.33E9 (9.33 billion)
Obozo was speaking at a Honeywell plant in Minnesota that I believe manufactures thermostats.
So, bereft of teleprompter, he probably meant to say “thermostat” but choked (probably because he’s never touched one himself).
However, a thermostat costs nowhere near $3,000.
You've just killed 99% of the country, you @#($(@($*!
Try 3.11 x 10^8 * 3 x 10^3
and you get 933 billion.
Is that the same thing as a “Thingamabob?” Or is it more like a “Doohickey?” Come to think of it, I think he mean’t to say a “whatchamacallit?” Or maybe is he thinking of a “Gizmo?”
I think it’s good to get those old words out there for the new generation. Thank you, Mr. President.
