Hand in hand with the Emperor's New Jobs Bill, is this part of He Who Shall Not Be Re-elected's radio address:
It is time for Congress to get its act together and pass this jobs bill so I can sign it into law.
Some Republicans in Congress have said that they agree with certain parts of this jobs bill. If so, it’s time for them to tell me what those proposals are. And if they’re opposed to this jobs bill, I’d like to know what exactly they’re against.
Some Republicans?? What about Democrats in the Senate? Democrats hold a majority of seats in the Senate, and so far, Harry Reid won't touch this bill with a ten foot pole.
It is extremely hypocritical for the President to single out Republicans, as though they were the only thing holding this ruinous (and erroneously named) tax bill back.
Obama is in full campaign mode. His so called "jobs bill" is just more hype, designed to be a poison pill for the Republicans, which he hopes will boost his re-election chances in 2012. The plight of unemployed Americans is not on Mr. Obama's agenda, except as an obstacle to his second term.
