    In his Saturday radio and Internet address, President Barack Obama excoriated House Republicans for commencing their scheduled recess at a time when there were numerous bills to be voted on that allegedly would have buttressed the economy. “Last week, without much fanfare, members of the House of Representatives banged a gavel, turned out the lights and rushed home, declaring their work finished for now,” Obama began. “If that frustrates you, it should, because their work isn’t finished. “When they skipped town, members of Congress left a whole bunch of proposals sitting on the table. These ideas have been around for...

    Today's weekly addresses from President Barack Obama and Governor Scott Walker speaking on behalf of the GOP both centered on jobs and economic growth. But the similarities end there as their comments demonstrate the stark contrast between left and right, recklessness and responsibility, failure and success.

    Both President Barack Obama and a representative of the Republican Party used their weekly addresses to encourage their political opponents to pass legislation they claimed will improve the economy. The difference is the House's American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act would generate revenue to pay for infrastructure by expanding energy production while the president's proposed housing plan is just another expensive gimmick. In today's GOP weekly address, Congressman Pat Meehan (R-Pennsylvania) said, "Instead of more earmarks or new taxes, our bill will remove barriers to job growth by expanding American energy production - which will help lower gas prices -...
  • Obama uses ‘Occupy Wall Street’ language in weekly address

    President Barack Obama and Occupy Wall Street are speaking the same language. In his weekly address to the nation, Obama cited an economic report showing that the middle class has lost ground to “the top one percent.” “The average income for the top one percent of Americans has risen almost seven times faster than the income of the average middle class family,” he said. “And this has happened during a period where the cost of everything from health care to college has skyrocketed.”

    Republican Majority Leader's website (GOP.gov) ^ | 10/1/11 | Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA)
    Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) delivers this week's address, detailing government regulations that cost private-sector jobs and impede economic growth. This fall, as part of the House Republican Plan for America's Job Creators, the House will continue working on legislation to stop excessive and unreasonable regulations. These common-sense bills will save thousands of American jobs and restore the confidence our job creators need to grow and expand our economy. It's time to get our country working again.

    Another day another version of President Barack Obama's 'Pass This Bill' speech. This time he used his weekly radio address to push his American Jobs Act saying, "every one of you can help make it happen by telling your congressperson to pass this jobs bill right away." But he has yet to explain how his new plan can possibly work when virtually the same ideas at double the cost didn't work last time. Mr. Obama is offering the same kind of temporary tax cuts, extremely targeted tax credits and employment subsidies that were contained in 2009's $800 billion stimulus bill....

    With the nation teetering on the brink of a double dip recession, President Barack Obama returned from his $50,000 a week vacation and delivered his weekly radio address. There was no mention of his promised new ideas for job growth and helping the poor and middle class. There was no comment on the re-estimated 0.7% economic growth for the first half of the year. Instead, there was a seemingly benign attempt to use the upcoming anniversary of the September 11 attacks to encourage Americans to participate in a National Day of Service and Remembrance. Setting aside the lost (or perhaps...

    Note to President Barack Obama: Telling the American people how to feel is not leadership. In his weekly radio address today, the president claimed it is "partisanship and gridlock" that have "hindered our efforts to grow the economy," that we have a right to be frustrated and we should let members of Congress know that we are. In short, the weak economy his policies have made so much worse is the fault of his political opposition so please join him in blaming them for his failure.

    The US economy is in serious danger of a double-dip recession, our military is embroiled in at least three wars, unemployment is over nine percent and the national debt is surging ever closer to the debt ceiling. So to what issue does President Barack Obama devote his weekly address? What a good dad he is.

    Here is video today of President Obama's new Weekly Address, which he used to talk about the U.S. Economy. Obama used the latest GDP data to say that the Recession was far worse than thought when he took office. Obama warned that Unemployment data next week is likely to go higher. That seems to be an attempt to lessen the pain next week when the numbers come out. . . . . (Watch Video)

    Here is video of Washington GOP Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers giving the Republican Weekly Address. She called the Democrats' Government Health Plan a "Prescription for disaster." She pointed out that the Democrat plan will add to the deficit, reduce health care choices for families and senior citizens, and impose a tax on small business that will lead to higher unemployment. Rogers said the GOP Plan in the House reduces costs, increases access, improves the quality of patient care, and preserves the doctor-patient relationship. . . . . . . (Watch Video)

    Here is video of President Obama's Weekly Address today, July 11, 2009, where he claimed the $787 Billion Stimulus Plan has "worked as intended." . . . However, Obama did not mention that they told Americans - without the Stimulus, unemployment would rise to 9%. It now stands at 9.5%. He then goes on to push his "Cap and Trade" bill and Government Health Care. Americans are beginning to question whether Obama knows what he is doing on the economy. Repeating the same things over and over again may not change their minds. . . . . (Watch Video)

    [video] e admit we’re a couple weeks late with this story. But with all the important news about killer monkeys and Muslim beheadings and tax dodging nominees, we just got around to watching President Obama’s first weekly radio address. So much for soaring oratory. So much for inspirational demagoguery. So much for sending a thrill up Chris Matthews’ leg. The president’s first weekly radio address proved that even Obama can be dull. IF FDR’s speeches were done at the fireside, this was done on the uninspired side. Here, as a public service of IHateTheMedia.com, is a brief synopsis of the...

    Listen to our charlatan-in-chief smugly explain how his trillion-dollar turd is going to make education affordable, provide police for our streets, and even save lives. Yes, the liberal Messiah is going to save people's lives with this turd... so we're all going to be really thrilled that we gave him a blank check. And, of course, he pays zero attention to the engine of capitalism, the stock market. It's down almost 20% since he won the election, but true to his brain Axelrod's comments, they don't care at all.
