Right after his vacation at Martha's Vineyard.
That's a relief.
At least he'll be well rested. That teleprompter is a bitch to read if you're tired.
To be as lucky to have 9 vacations by the end of August ourselves. Of course they're not really vacation-vacations. I mean if something catastrophic were to happen, he'd have to come home early.
What financial crisis are we in anyways? Someone needs to tell those 100's of thousands who haven't had a job, much less a vacation, in over 2 years.
They will be singing his praises I am sure...
Obama to lay out new jobs plan in Sept. speech - Yahoo! News
Best line of the story:
And another classic:
Obama's plan is likely to contain a mix of tax cuts, jobs-boosting construction projects and steps to help the long-term unemployed, a senior administration official told The Associated Press. The official emphasized that Obama's proposals would be fresh ones, not a rehash of plans he has pitched for many weeks and still supports, like his idea of an "infrastructure bank" to finance construction jobs.
Let me guess:
He will propose targeted tax cuts like the cut in payroll taxes. He will propose new "infrastructure" spending. He will finance this all with taxes on millionaires and billionaires and cutting corporate tax loopholes.
Those proposals are "fresh" in the sense that the guy mashing his lips on his date's is fresh. He is truly out of ideas. Has it not occurred to him that he's had 3 years to come up with a plan to do something? Has it not occurred to him that every plan he's pushed either a) won't get passed through the GOP because it consists of highers taxes and spending, and b) is a rehash of another plan that didn't work?
This is the first "Groundhog Day" presidency where the same things keep happening over and over.
We'll have to see the plan before we knock it... Obama is a horrible president but he has just over a year to turn things around. Now I highly doubt he will do what it takes but until I see "his" jobs report I can't attack it.
Can anyone say 'Stimulus, v. 2.0'?
Likely something like this
1# Raise taxes on the rich
2# Raise Taxes on the middle class
3# Raise the minimum wage to 9 dollars per hour
4# Create another government department
5# Increase government jobs 300 percent, with more paper pushers.
6# Tax the hell out of the private sector.
OK. What do you think the chances are that Obama has seen that his approach is a failure, and that the Milton Friedman school was right all along? That he will cease his war on corporate America and demonizing millionaires and billionaires? That he will understand that myriads of shifting regulations that impose huge costs are counter-productive?
I'd say the chances are better that he will reveal his membership in the KKK.
Obama wants to cut taxes for the middle class, increase infrastructure spending, and propose a bigger deficit reduction plan than the $1.5 trillion package that a new "supercommittee" of Congress must come up with by late November.
Republicans will say no to all. No tax cuts for the middle class. No investment into America. No bigger deficit reduction plan.
I have been hearing every 5 minutes on MSNBC,I listen for the laughs...
Every 5 minutes now...they are pushing for a massive spending bill,another stimulus.
This time they will go for rebuilding the infrastructure....
They need to spend a boat load of money to get people working...
How Fucked up are we now?
How fucked up are we gonna be when these clowns want to spend us into oblivion.
Where the fuck has this President been for the last three years.
Now's he's scared he will not be re elected so he's pulling out all the stops...
I predicted this a year ago....The big push to get something done so he gets elected again.
