Obama and Senate Democrats plan to spin … er … pivot to jobs

by editor on August 8, 2011

The Ballerina-in-Chief is at it again. Now that his debt ceiling melodrama is going on hiatus, Barry and fellow dancers are planning to “pivot to jobs.”

Seems we’ve heard this song before. Yet the unemployment numbers continue to worsen despite the administration’s frequent announcements that it’s now pivoting to jobs.

It's times like this that the Obama administration really misses the ballet stylings of Rahm Emanuel

Politico’s “exclusive” reveals new revolutions:

Senate Democrats hope they now have “checked the box” on debt reduction and can move to an agenda focused on job creation and economic growth, through a combination of spending and tax cuts.

Sure, worked so well the last two years. Doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result is the definiton of insanity and liberalism.

Many Democrats fear the budget fights of this year have distracted from the issue that will be central to voters in the fall of 2012 – and officials want to get Paul Krugman off their backs.

Running backwards full speed into a wall will also work, both for distracting voters and getting rid of Krugman.

POTUS has closed meeting with AFL-CIO Executive Committee in East Room at 9:15 a.m.

Sounds like Boeing wants to move another plant.

Vice President Biden told reporters… “…[we] should be talking – right now about job creation initiatives. We should be talking about infrastructure. We should be talking about investment in education. We should be talking … about investing in innovation.

No Joe, you should be talking about taking a bullet train out of town. The only thing you people know about jobs is it’s a 4-letter word. The music employers want to hear is Obama’s swan song.

Obama is like a gyroscope—always spinning around at a frantic pace, but not really going anywhere.

I was thinking along the lines of the little spinning top from the movie INCEPTION….because Obama & Co are definitely spinning and they’re MOST definitely in Dreamland…the bad part for the rest of us…we’re on that second level of dreams that is collapsing…

When you’re in a deep hole, the solution is to stop digging, not dig faster.

Remember how ObamaCare was going to create jobs? LOTS of jobs? Pelosi telling us about those 4 million jobs? The 400,000 jobs starting immediately?

Here’s your morning giggle:

An oldie but goodie:

THE HAIRCUT

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, “I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.”

The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a “thank you” card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop came in for a haircut, but when he tried to pay his bill the barber said, “I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.”

The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a “thank you” card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber said, “I cannot accept money from you; I’m doing community service this week.”

The Congressman was very pleased and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And THAT, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

a combination of spending and tax cuts.

Is that spending cuts plus tax cuts, or spending and then tax cuts?
What am I saying? This is Obama! Spend, spend, spend, then cut taxes (yea, right, cut taxes!)
Now, who was it that was saying we need to increase revenue?
Hmmm, spend more, collect less. Yep! That sounds like the formula to eliminate the debt! 8-(

There goes the Senate Dems running right towards the middle before the 2012 election when 22 of their number are up for re-election.
