Obama to Propose New Stimulus in Lame Attempt to Set Up Campaign
The president’s jobs plan that everybody’s awaiting in September. Just redo the stimulus. Just double it. The first stimulus was so good, it just wasn’t big enough, all those jobs that were created and saved. Just do it again, especially since you know the Republicans won’t go for it. Remember the president’s jobs program — I told you this yesterday — the president’s jobs program is not a jobs program. It is a campaign proposal. Everything the Bamster does from here on out is about reelection. It’s not about substantive economic policy or foreign policy or anything of the sort.
Now, I know I’m right about this. If the strategery is to not run on the record, ’cause they can’t run on the record, but they want to, what they’re gonna do is they’re gonna run on how good the record would have been if it weren’t for all the Republican obstructionism. Now, they’re gonna have to work awfully hard to pull that off because we all know that Barack Obama had supermajorities in the House and Senate for the first two years of his presidency, and we’re only at a little over two and a half years. So for 2009 and 2010, he had 60 votes in the Senate ’til Scott Brown was elected, he had supermajority in the House. The Republicans did not have the numbers to stop him on anything. In fact, there wasn’t much Republican obstructionism. The Republicans were scared to death to say anything critical of Obama for the first year. The only obstructionism he got was from conservative media.
He didn’t get any obstructionism from Republicans and he’s not getting a whole lot now, but he is getting a lot of obstruction, nothing we can do other than talk, but conservative media is not rolling over and playing dead for the guy. So he’s gonna come along and gonna say, “Look, if it weren’t for all that obstruction, my record, we would be in great shape if it weren’t for the Republicans.” But, of course, they couldn’t have stopped him.
