Back To This Job Creation Thing Barack...
Create Any Jobs Lately Barack?
It's hard for Team Obama to stay on message these days. They want to talk about everything but the economy and Obama's failed policies. As James Carville so aptly put it back when, "It's the economy Stupid!"
Maybe all you business owners out there should take heart. You now know that if you are successful and created jobs for people that you didn't do that. Somebody else (read: the government) did that for you. But the shiny side of that is that you have obviously created more jobs than Barack Hussein Obama has ever created. I keep hearing Democratic talking heads saying "Obama has created 4 million jobs, blah, blah, blah..."
In fact Obama has never created a job in his life. The government's role might be, on a good day, to foster a healthy climate where businesses can start up, create jobs, expand and provide for the overall welfare of the economy but get real. The federal government should not be in the business of creating jobs. When it does they usually involve "make work" type opportunities.
Two instances have recently come to mind regarding Obama and the economy, both of which seem to center on his creating a commission, council or whatever other name you care to call it of experts/advisers to conduct deep studies for him to digest. The two that come immediately to mind are the Bowles/Simpson Commission concerning taxation and spending and the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
Ironically Obama named the Bowles/Simpson effort The National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility & Reform. Unfortunately for this bi-partisan commission, Obama never had any intention of ever being fiscally responsible nor reforming our entitlement heavy society. The commission's focus was on reducing the debt and Obama has also never had that flavor of ice cream in his cone either. The Commission's findings and recommendations were summarily dismissed by the White House even though they still occasionally hit the headlines as those measures that are going to be necessary in order to actually reduce our debt and not just raise taxes to enable the government to continue to spend even more of our hard earned tax dollars.
Lately people have begun to ask, "When was the last time Obama and his Council on Jobs & Competitiveness" held a session to discuss job creation?" Turns out it appears to be sometime this past January - the 17th to be exact. It seems that Obama is distracted from running our nation and more intent on campaigning and raising money so that he can keep his own job. I seriously doubt that at this point he cares whether you keep your job or not, just so he keeps his seems to be his focus. A successful incumbent can usually rest a bit easy about being re-elected. But I did say "successful."
He's totally preoccupied with campaigning. He's out there acting the clown and making totally false accusations against others while at the same time failing to accept any responsibility for his own failed policies and actions. His answer now is to "raise taxes on the rich." That would be those who make more than $250K a year as a couple and $200K as an individual. He's been down that route before and Congress, the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform (AKA the debt reduction commission) and his own Council on Jobs & Competitiveness all seem to agree that what he is proposing is bad policy and counterproductive to the creation of jobs in this nation. That isn't even taking into consideration that what he is talking about will be like an ant pissing on a forest fire regarding the excessive spending he doesn't want to adress.
Hope He Paid His Bill...
The American people do deserve better. What we have experienced since he assumed office is inexcusable from a leadership perspective. The came into a bad job's situation and rather than focus on that we ended up with an unpopular health care bill. He spent about $1 trillion of our tax money on a failed stimulus program then joked that "shovel ready wasn't really shovel ready." He appoints commissions and councils of experts then if their findings don't match his anti-capitalistic views he ignore those same experts.
Listen to the campaign rhetoric going on out there across the nation while he continues to ignore the pressing issues facing this nation. What is being said plays well in the rich versus poor, haves versus have nots theater but it is not doing diddly squat in creating jobs. Listen to it closely and where it is being said. In the swing states of Virginia, Ohio and Florida he tells his fawning followers that he is going to increase federal spending and wants more funding for his green energy horror stories. Where is that money going to come from? The deficit needs to be reduced not expanded.
At the time we, as a nation, needed leadership we got Barack Hussein Obama. Now we need leadership more than ever so lets not get stuck with Obama again. Yes Mr. Speaker, the American people do deserve better and some of us are working towatd achieving that goal.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The choice for President has now been made clear by Obama. After November's election you will either succeed by your own efforts, talents and hard work or you will let the government be the decider of who will be successful and who will not be.
