Obama is previewing his “jobs speech” which he’ll be giving on Thursday, and it’s basically deja vu all over again.
“On Thursday, we’re going to lay out a new way forward on jobs to grow the economy and put more Americans back to work right now. I don’t want to give everything away right here, because I want you all to tune in on Thursday, but I’ll give you just a little bit.”
We’ve got roads and bridges across this country that need rebuilding. We’ve got private companies with the equipment and the manpower to do the building. We’ve got more than 1 million unemployed construction workers ready to get dirty right now. There is work to be done and there are workers ready to do it. Labor is on board. Business is on board. We just need Congress to get on board. Let’s put America back to work.”
Let’s see: Obama’s $862 billion – actually $3.27 TRILLION – pork-laden boondoggle wasn’t big enough the first time. The stimulus totally failed. But if at first you fail, why then fail, fail again. And why not spend America into its grave failing while you’re at it?
“Ready to get dirty right now.” What does that remind me of?
Oh, that’s right. Watch this video to find out:
“Ready to get dirty right now” is just another damn way of saying “shovel-ready projects.”
What was it Obama said? You know, after selling the first massive stimulus as being one huge “shovel-ready jobs” package???
But what the hell. Let’s waste another few billion tons of money. Let’s make sure we dig our way into a hole that will guarantee out complete economic collapse.
Please don’t be stupid. It’s being leaked that Obama is going to propose another $300 billion for the same crap that conservatives RIGHTLY predicted would fail the last time when it was three times bigger. It’s not going to work. It’s going to fail for the same reasons the stimulus failed so abysmally before.
People are most concerned about jobs right now; maybe they should stop listening to mainstream media ideologues and start listening to the people who actually create jobs:
Chief Executive Magazine’s most recent polling of 751 CEOs shows that GOP presidential candidate John McCain is the preferred choice for CEOs. According to the poll, which is featured on the cover of Chief Executive’s most recent issue, by a four-to-one margin, CEOs support Senator John McCain over Senator Barack Obama. Moreover, 74 percent of the executives say they fear that an Obama presidency would be disastrous for the country.
“The stakes for this presidential election are higher than they’ve ever been in recent memory,” said Edward M. Kopko, CEO and Publisher of Chief Executive magazine. “We’ve been experiencing consecutive job losses for nine months now. There’s no doubt that reviving the job market will be a top priority for the incoming president. And job creating CEOs repeatedly tell us that McCain’s policies are far more conducive to a more positive employment environment than Obama’s.”
“Disastrous for the country.” That doesn’t sound good. And that’s about as optimistic as the CEO’s get about Barack Obama:
“I’m not terribly excited about McCain being president, but I’m sure that Obama, if elected, will have a negative impact on business and the economy,” said one CEO voicing his lack of enthusiasm for either candidate, but particularly Obama.
In expressing their rejection of Senator Obama, some CEOs who responded to the survey went as far as to say that “some of his programs would bankrupt the country within three years, if implemented.” In fact, the poll highlights that Obama’s tax policies, which scored the lowest grade in the poll, are particularly unpopular among CEOs.
“Bankrupt the country within three years.” There. You want socialism, you can have it. “Spread the wealth around” so that country itself is as broke as the defaulting homeowners and the defaulting mortgage houses we keep hearing about.
How can you people not see that these professional job creators were RIGHT?!?!? These CEOs KNEW what they were talking about; how much more obvious can it get that Obama DOESN’T?!?!?
Please vote this disgrace out of office before it’s too late for America to recover.
