Obama: “If you love me, pass this bill!”
Yes, he is trying to revive the Cult of Personality and make it all about himself. Seriously. He went there.

The voters of New York just rejected Obama in NY-09. Let’s not | Read More »
Majority Think Jobs Plan is Crap: Weak and Indecisive and Now Even More Dead on Arrival
Mark Hemingway points out just how fast the White House caves these days. Yesterday morning, David Axelrod went on television and declared the GOP must pass the President’s jobs plan totally. All or nothing or something like that. By early mid-day, the White House began signaling it’d cut a deal with the GOP. By last night David Weprin got annihilated in NY-09. This morning, Bloomberg | Read More »
The President Moves on to Jobs
Yeah, let’s roll the tape again.
Last Night, President Obama Sowed the Seeds of His Own Destruction

He wants to give tax credits to small businesses to hire people. He wants more government pork for more roads and bridges. These are all things Republicans have gone along with in the past. These are all things Republicans will | Read More »
The Obligatory Word Cloud For Tired Old Rhetoric
This speech sounds pretty much exactly like all his other failed speeches. Pretty much every job he talks about, just like in 2009, 2010, and 2011 are government jobs or jobs dependent on government. The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more | Read More »
All You Need To Know About the President’s Speech

General Electric is a prime example of a business that has profited lately not through the free market, but through the government | Read More »
Job Creation vs. Career Politician: The Romney Path to Victory
“Romney has the money and manpower to walk this tight rope carefully. If he pulls it off, he is going to be a far better general election candidate than even Romney supporters can imagine.” I have written that I thought the better attack for Mitt Romney would be to go after Rick Perry for being a career politician rather than try to discredit, as the | Read More »
We Don’t Need a Speech. We Need Jobs.
President Obama and Speaker Boehner have agreed that the President will address a joint session of the Congress next Thursday. The President wanted Wednesday during the GOP debate, but John Boehner said no. Folks at the White House said the Speaker had been consulted before they put it in writing and did not object.

Will the Opposite of “Saved or Created” be “Killed or Wounded”?
Barack Obama wants everyone talking about the jobs he has saved or created, but it is time to put some attention on those jobs killed or wounded by Barack Obama. A case in point would be the oil industry. According to a report by CNS News, Barack Obama has killed or wounded 19,000 jobs due to his ban on drilling for oil. Of the 19,000 | Read More »
Jeffrey Immelt to Lead a ‘Jobs Committee’?
The President of the United States is doing what liberals do best — creating a committee to figure out why his liberal policies aren’t creating jobs. Who is he putting in charge? Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of GE, also known as Keith Olbermann’s boss. Since Mr. Immelt took over GE, we’ve seen its financial business bailed out by the federal government, its total number of | Read More »
