    The Democrats rushed to officially sponsor Obama's bill. So it's on the way to becoming law. Oh wait. They didn't.



    "House GOP Rep. Louis Gohmert (Texas) officially introduced the "American Jobs Act of 2011" on Wednesday afternoon."

    GOP rep. introduces alternative


    Way to go, Louis!

    Obama's Stimulus Round II will never see the light of day.

    Yeah, I wouldn't think so. But you'd think Obama would be organized and competent enough to at least get someone like Pelosi to secure his legislation's name for him.

    Did he consult with anyone in the congress about his ideas before he presented them?

    I hear that.

    But still I'm seriously shocked. If he really didn't have anyone on his side, why did he offer his opponents such a big target? What was Obama's skill set when he came into office? Speaking and politicking - "organizing" if you will.

    And he can't even do that? Can't even get a single Democrat on board with him when he goes over to Congress with all the pomp and circumstance to request his bill be passed.




    He has reached new heights of incompetence. I really didn't think he would have it in him. Why would he do this without even one person on board with him? You don't ask questions in court that you don't know the answer to. You don't send someone like Clinton or Carter in to negotiate high profile international coups unless you have an arrangement in advance. And you don't call together both houses of congress and take over a hundred million American televisions sets unless you have something up your sleeve. Politics 101.

    I can't believe the heights of failure Obama is scaling. His ineptitude is jaw-dropping. No joke. We on the right poke at him all the time. But to just hand this to us? To be sooo incredibly unprepared ..... ? WTH?

    And what evidence do you have for this very intelligent conclusion.

    TM please feel free to spend as much money as you like.

    However, me and my house will try to live within our means. And I have no doubt we will be much better for it.
