I’m reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
Did you see this yesterday? Two weeks before the election, and he just now is unveiling his plan for ‘jobs and middle class security’. Two weeks?
Ba haaa haaaa. Obama went around yesterday touting a 20-page pamphlet. Two weeks before the election, and he just now is unveiling his plan for ‘jobs and middle class security’. Two weeks?
. “I’ve laid out a plan for jobs and middle-class security,” he claimed in Delray Beach, Florida, brandishing a 20-page brochure titled “A Plan for Jobs and Middle-Class Security” and going on to invoke his “plan” another dozen-odd times. “I won’t be running the okey doke on you,” he added.
Cant. Breath. Make him stop.
He said in that video that he was going to “summarize” his plan, but if you take a look at the pamphlet itself you’ll see that there wasn’t really much to “summarize”. It’s pretty much a campaign brochure with Obama pictures and bullet points. There is actually a picture of Obama on EVERY page.
(See for yourself; it’s at BarackObama.com/plans. )
Anyway, Obama’s going to hire 100,000 new math and science teachers, give business tax credits on hiring, and train two millions workers for (get this) “good jobs that actually exist.”
All of this is merely a kind of Junior Achievement version of the stimulus, trying to create jobs with more government spending that isn’t affordable, or temporary tax favors that fail because they are, well, temporary. Businesses hire based on total employee costs, not one-off tax benefits. Since 2009 the country has lost 610,000 net manufacturing jobs, despite such preferences.
He’s also, now, keen on expanding oil production- because that’s a winning issue. That comes with a ‘but’, though.
He also says he’ll open up millions of acres for development, but his booklet includes far more discussion of a mandate for 80% of U.S. electricity to come from “clean” energy sources by 2035. Such a renewable portfolio standard, as it’s called, would limit demand for the very oil-and-gas surge he wants to take credit for.
The pamphlet goes on to explain that he wants to raise taxes on the top 2% and promises to protect Obamacare, social security, and medicare from those evil Republicans.
Obama’s newest pitch:
“I don’t want to lose this election.
Not because of what losing would mean for me — Michelle and I will be fine no matter what happens.
But because of what it would mean for our country and middle-class families.
This race is very close.
I’m not willing to watch the progress you and I worked so hard to achieve be undone.
Time is running out to make an impact — please don’t wait any longer. Donate $5 or more today:
I believe in you. If you stick with me, and if we fight harder than ever for the next two weeks, I truly believe we can’t lose.
Yes, they will be fine. @@. I’m sure Obama’s voters were SO worried about that.
