    Yep, The Democrats are Proud of Fewer Jobs in Our Future Due to Obamacare 

    Truly sad.  This is something that the Daily Kos is circulating through social media.

    “Lost Focus” New RNC Ad – Video 

    I have to say, the RNC is getting better at this.

      Love it. Proud of Romney’s bunch. Pleasantly surprised at the great race Romney is running! Love Ann.
      God Bless Romney and his family!

      I`m still not ready to take Team Romney`s conservative creds to the bank, but I am pleased with his recent attack Obama mode. I mean, the ads are writing themselves !

      Obama`s focus on jobs has from very early on been called “laser-like” and as we know, lasers are destructive tools, so it just stands to reason that someone with the overall ineptitude of Obama and the dems who support his agenda would be using that focused laser to kill as many private sector jobs and the rest of the struggling economy as possible !

      Yes, the GOP is getting better, and thankfully, Obama does kinda make it easy.

    Saving the President’s Vacation 

    The poor man, victim of bad luck and those meanie mean people who still insist on buying SUVs, trying to make money and eating something fried, just wants to take his family on a modest vacation by the shore and he has these whiny whiners whining about wanting to have jobs. 

    Why do they want jobs? 

    They’re on vacation right now! That’s where he wants to be! But, he’s promised to deliver a master plan, a plan to end all other plans, a plan so brilliant, it will make all those cry baby people who complained sorry they ever doubted anything he said.  Soon.  Right after his vacation….except not.  It’s a reasonable request to wait three to four more weeks.

    After all, these sorts of plans take time to craft and develop…and it’s unfair to encroach on quality time with the family when work is so very demanding and he’s done so much.   So I feel for the President.  I do. I know the burden of the crown …er sorry, Presidency, weighs heavy.  I know because he’s told me he works harder and is less appreciated than Martin Luther King, and more mocked and misunderstood than Abraham Lincoln. 

    Because I feel his pain and think he and his family deserve this time away from the maddening crowds so he can eat his waffles or ice cream or Tuscan kale or arugula in peace, I will give him a gift.  That’s right, I will personally craft for him his master plan on jobs as it will be presented post labor day.  I can even help free up that time for that speech by presenting it here.

    Here goes:

    Good afternoon, I come to you today after completing extensive research, reviewing all the options, consulting experts in the field because I’m open to all options and am serious about this.  Let me be clear, the problems our economy faces are systemic, long-term and the result of over reaching and overspending and irresponsibility by congress, and the results of reckless executive decisions made long before I took the oath of office.  

    The country has had a string of bad luck in world affairs coupled with congressional political grandstanding that refused compromise.  Combined, this mix has prolonged if not crippled all attempts I have made at recovery.   

    Let me be clear, the way I offer is hard, fair and reasonable.  It is the way to prosperity for the good of all, but it requires that those of us who have more, be more generous and understand that this is what we must do for our country. 

    I know you think like I do, that it is unjust that Wallstreet and Corporations have profits in the billions and millions, while millions are on food stamps. 

    I know you agree that it is unjust for politicians listen to the rich who can buy access, and we have to trim teachers and soldiers and policemen’s pensions, or threaten the elderly and disabled with less economic security to enrich the pockets of those who have more than they will ever need. 

    We must act.  We must change our ways and the time is now.  

    Therefore, I’m directing Congress to pass my budget, which will include a three for one tax, for every dollar spent by the federal government, we will tax three, so as to reduce the deficit through new income revenue to the treasury. 

    The bulk and blunt effect of these new taxes will be born by the wealthiest ten percent of our country, so the middle class and the poor will not be affected or injured.  

    Further, I’m asking for an excess profit cap tax, percentage based on all profit reported by any corporation.  It will be set for 20%, recaptured and used to help shore up existing assistance to the unemployed. 

    Lastly, I will ask all those in the legislator shouting about cutting the deficit and a balanced budget, to show they are serious by forfeiting their salaries and benefits.  

    Any who step forward and make such a sacrifice, will prove they mean what they say.  Anyone who doesn’t, proves they’re just in it for political points.  

    The republicans claim they care about ballancing the budget, so I will ask the leadership to restrain its members from inserting any pet projects or proposing any legislation or policies that result in pork to their own states, or create additional layers of bureaucracy or change existing law.  I will direct the Congress to only fund those projects that are critical, that save jobs.  But, we must do more.  I will demand more.

     We will create new incentives and Federal grants for companies that promote green energy and green jobs.

    There will be money allocated for college for students who want to enter into education to help in our public schools. An educated public is a working public.

    We will also improve America’s infrastructure with highways, high-speed rail and communications, like cell, satellite and high-speed internet to make sure everyone has access to the world-wide web.  Kids these days can’t get a job or get ahead without computer knowledge, and they can’t get computer knowledge without having access to computers, so we will invest in technology to give kids that leg up to the American Dream. 

    Finally, I know that a President gets credit or blame for the economy, but I want you to know that I am working as hard as I can, and that I will talk to anyone, anywhere. I am  open to any ideas that come from anywhere about how we can help grow our economy.  I’ve ridden across country and I’ve heard your frustration, I’m frustrated too.  I am.   I am!

    But change as we all know, takes time.  Phone your representatives and tell them, with their cooperation, We Can.  Yes we can.  This is the time when doubts could throw us off track.  Don’t let them make you doubt what you said we needed when you elected me to office.  Don’t let them return us to the same old same ole.  We all knew that change would be hard and tough, but now we all need to dig deep and hold on. They don’t want to have skin in the game, they want you to sit on the sidelines so they can continue to sit on their profits.  We need them to get in the game, we need them  to invest in what we’ve started.

    I invite every corporation, every investor, every American, to invest in our future as a country by being willing to give up just a little bit for their neighbor.  It is the just and right thing to do, and all of us will benefit. 

    Now, if you have any questions, I’ll just send you to our newest Job Czar. I have a tee time and I promised I wouldn’t be late. (Chuckles and leaves, no questions).

    Editor’s Note: Print, save and do a shot for each proposal that hits the mark, only promise not to operate heavy machinery for a good 10 hours afterwards.

      You`ve been ghost writing his speeches all along, haven`t you ?

      Inquiring minds sorta want to know !! ;-)

    Kudlow wonders what planet Obama is from 

    If only our president had a tenth of the common sense or brains of Larry Kudlow. His exasperation with Obama’s cluelessness is palpable:

    Believe it or not, with jobs falling for four consecutive months and unemployment stubbornly high near 10 percent, President Obama is out on the campaign trail bashing businesses and promoting class warfare. Huh? Oh my gosh is he off message.

    He’s slamming the Chamber of Commerce for allegedly using foreign money in campaign ads, even though there’s not one shred of evidence of this. Huh (again)? Is the Chamber really a big election-year issue? Is it causing high unemployment?

    Read all of Obama the Alien.

    If looks could kill… 

    Look at that opening shot frozen on the screen. A view of The View. Video via RCP.

    And he blathers about public sector jobs–which we all pay for. That is not growth for the economy. That is not a sustainable future for this country.

      Interesting anecdote related to the Forbes article as well as the POTUS photo op taking the Volt for a 10 foot spin. My father and his cousin worked all their lives for a major battery manufacturing company. My father was in sales and his cousin gained most of the patents the company obtained in all the years I was growing up, he was really a genius. I can remember he and my father discussing battery powered cars 40 years ago, this was always a target for the company. The bottom line was there was never any hope a battery powered car would be viable. Think of all the tech developments over the last 40 years, some have been developed that were likely not even thought of 40 years ago. In all that time they are no further along on a battery powered car than they were when I was a kid. It’s a dead end product line that only a government would continue to fund at this point.

      The screen shot of the Obama death stare is something. I am surprised she didn’t get the not-so-subtle middle finger. He can not take being challenged – he is too fragile.

      Great story.

      I slightly revise my view of Elizabeth H. She is pretty brave. She even did a follow up.

      I still can’t make myself watch the show tho, other than these one-offs, in the interests of observing liberal women’s thought processes. An exercise in futility.

      • rubyslipperblog 9:41 PM on 07/30/2010 Permalink | Reply

        I never watch the show, ever. I only see the clips here on the net when they become newsworthy I have liberal women friends who I swear drink a potion turning them from Jeckles into Hydes when politics comes up. It’s a book discussion so we generally try to avoid lighting a fuse with politics and religion. Surprisingly though most don’t buy the global warming scam – at least not among the group I know.

    It Is Better To Be Thought An Idiot Than To Open Your Mouth And Remove All Doubt, Ron 

    On June 25, 2010, Ron Blackwell submitted himself to a smackdown from Fox Business Managing Editor Neil Cavuto.

    Blackwell is the chief economist for the AFL-CIO.  His bio reveals he received awards for his work in the labor movement and in social justice.  Social justice, as you know, is progressivespeak for the fair distribution of advantages, assets, and benefits among all members of a society.

    Blackwell is the author of “Globalization and the American Labor Movement” in the book edited by Steve Fraser and Joshua Freeman, Audacious Democracy: Labor, Intellectuals and the Social Reconstruction of America.

    The “gotcha” moment in the embedded video comes when Blackwell says, “I’m answering you right now—these programs did create jobs but not net creation. We lost more jobs because of the recession than were created by these programs. Net, gross—is that a complex idea for you?”

    Since the beginning of the recession (roughly January 2008), some 7.9 million jobs were lost in the private sector while 590,000 jobs were gained in the public one.  And since the passage of the stimulus bill (February 2009), over 2.6 million private jobs were lost, but the government workforce grew by 400,000.

    Dow is down 600 points and there’s no Republican to Blame! 

    Between yesterday’s fat fingers surprise and all the fingers in the private sector investment pie today, we seem to be having a bit of trouble in Obamaland.   After all, the stock market isn’t behaving in a friendly type way what with the unrest abroad in Greece and potentially Spain and England.  No one really seems to know why even though there’s the 9.9 % unemployment, the trillion plus deficit and the massive debt buying by China, no, none of the smart people who make a living explaining how smart they are by comparison to the rest of us huddled masses seem to have any idea why the main means of generating wealth, investing, is a bit more risky than people who actually know how to make money and want to make money, would want.  It’s a big mystery. 

    It must be Bush’s fault.  He was in bed with big oil.  Granted the sitting President took 750 million from BP but in Obamanomics, that’s chump change; and the necessary give back by a company that makes too much money.  All that profit has to be modified properly so that when a company does profit, the best thing to do, is not invest in your infrastructure or improve your facilities to prevent such calamities, but lobby potential presidential candidates for access.   

    And I don’t hear the howls of the environmentalists at the government filled with powerful people who are 1) taking middle class vacations to North Carolina  2) secretaries of the interior who go white water rafting 3) homeland security people who say they were on the job from Day 1 envisioning a worst case scenario.  (Well that might be true with Janet on the job) while the coastline was being destroyed.   It began on April 20th, and now oil is coating and endangering the two primary sources of revenue in the State of Louisiana, fishing/shrimping and tourism.    Oysters can no longer be harvested, neither can crawfish or crabs.  They’re all covered.  These are jobs that will be lost until the situation is well beyond capped, and they’re jobs which created a culture and were a way of life that is now suspended indefinitely.

    Now when modern day Rome finally does burn, the fire will be easy to start.   If there is an oil cased lining to all of this, we will need a lot of people to clean up this mess along the whole gulf coast and you know what that means, more government J-O-   b.s.

      If we want to create more jobs, just blow up another oil well or two. Simple.

      Didn’t you hear.. the White House is open to the ideas of sabotage in the stock market?

      Of course, we’ll have none of that talk when it comes to discussing how that oil rig mysteriously exploded, even though it was built with what, four layers of fail-safe devices?

      • Soloman 8:13 PM on 05/07/2010 Permalink | Reply

        Oh yeah.. and to watch State-run MSNBC, it’s all Cheney’s fault.
