The “Jobs” Bill

14 09 2011

3.5 years into his administration and Obama has introduced a jobs bill. Well, sort of.

He wanted to make people think he had jobs on his mind, so he asked for a joint session of Congress to present his plan. Only he requested a date that was also the GOP Presidential candidate debate – a debate that had been scheduled months in advance. The Speaker of the House said no can do, move your speech…which Obama did…and made his lame presentation in prime time on Thursday, Sept. 8.

So his plan is to spend bunches of millions on new jobs – all paid by tax increases. Nifty! And following the speech he goes on a road show to push his plan. He chides the crowds that this bill must be passed NOW. He asks them to call their Representative to demand the bill passage. Only problem….the bill was not in the Reps hands yet.

On Monday, Sept 12 the White House emailed the 155 page plan to Congress.

Four days had passed with Obama saying this must be passed NOW.¬† You would think upon receipt of the email a Democratic representative would file it…I mean…Obama said do it NOW! But no…as of Wednesday, Sept 14, NO ONE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES had filed the bill, Democrat or Republican.

I’m guessing a bill costing mega millions to be paid entirely with tax increases would be toxic for any representative to file. As others have said, Obama’s “jobs bill” was not meant to be a bill; it was meant to be a campaign document.





He Spies With His Little Eye..and New Website

14 09 2011

Obama snitches unite: there is a new website just for you. Attackwatch.com is where liberals are to go to report gossip, smears and attacks they see, hear or imagine about Obama. Here they submit “evidence” of attacks on the President.

This is one of the more ridiculous things I have seen Obama do…since the last time he did this during his last campaign.

This from the guy who wants to put the circus of politics aside. Geeze.

So within the day, a rival¬†website was created…attackwatchwatch.com…where you can go to be watched by the watchers and enjoy the jokes that come with such a circus.





Solyndra….How’d That Happen Mr. President?

13 09 2011

An interesting story is unfolding about Solyndra, a clean energy, “green jobs” company touted by Obama. They received a $535 million loan from Obama’s administration at a sweetheart rate of 1.025% quarterly. Then they shut their doors suddenly in August, leaving 1,000 “green jobs” workers out of work. Part of their bankruptcy filing would pay one of Obama’s donors FIRST before the government loan is repaid.

So to recap: Obama appears to have taken care of a donor by giving his company government money, which he took, and ran, and will get paid back first before taxpayers do.

Good story outline here.
