Chattanooga Paper Tells Obama to Take Your Jobs Plan and Shove It Before Speech By Andrew Johnson July 30, 2013 10:58 AM
The Chattanooga Times Free Press doesnt want any part of President Obamas latest jobs speech. Forgive us if you are not greeted with the same level of Southern hospitality that our area usually bestows on its distinguished guests, the papers editorial board warned this morning prior to the presidents speech at a local Amazon.com warehouse this afternoon.
The editors blasted the presidents job plan as being nothing more than a ridiculous government spending spree coupled with a punitive tax increase on job creators. Even regular folks with a basic understanding of math, not just top economists, understand that these are the most damaging policies imaginable for the country at this point in time, they wrote.
While local residents may not be excited to see Obama, the paper tells the president that ultimately its probably good that youre here because it will give you an opportunity to see the failure of your most comprehensive jobs plan to date, the disastrous stimulus scheme, up close and personal, in particular the wasteful electric/Internet/cable Smart Grid funded by the presidents 2009 stimulus. The Free Press editors detail that the grid, which they playfully call the Gig to Nowhere, will ultimately cost taxpayers a half-billion dollars which is nearly five times more than originally thought with little improvement in the quality of service, if not potentially worse. Along with driving up costs, the project has hampered technological innovation in Chattanooga, instead of fostering it as it was intended to do, they write.
Despite the Free Presss protests, President Obama will be making his latest jobs proposal in the city, but the newspaper could do without it. So excuse us, Mr. President, for our lack of enthusiasm for your new jobs program. Here in Chattanooga were still reeling from your old one, the newspaper concluded.
The press seems disenchanted.
No. They would endorse him tomorrow if he could run again. The papers are already gearing up to elect Hillary! and they need to make sure there are plenty of things that need the kind of fixin' Hillary! can handle.
wow....was always under the impression that Chattanooga was one of the “bluer” areas in the South.
They’re now officially racist.
Well we all know what he’s got to say.
Ifrastructure, I, meanie republicans, Me, phony scandals, myself, booming economy,........
Why not—Obama always says the same thing—always trys the same solutions—the ones that do not work?
I can't think of any other way for Americans to reverse their fate of enslavement to the government, internment or death than for the people to rise up and fight back. The lifting of 0bama's contemptuous and oppressive jack boot over what was once the envy of all the world is a monumental task that involves criminally prosecuting and impeaching scores of evil minions.
Christians and Jews are vilified. Gays and Muslims are empowered. Everything that is wrong, is right. This is 0bama's chaos upon America, aimed at sabotaging our free-market, Capitalist Republic AND ALL of the freedoms we enjoy. God please help us. Now.
Nobody’s listening to Obama on the economy anymore. They’re just waiting for him to leave.
bring eggs, lots of them.
