Cagle Post – The Obama Record: More Speeches, Fewer Jobs

If a $787 billion stimulus didn’t work in 2009, why would a $447 billion stimulus work in 2011? Mr. Obama’s dwindling numbers of supporters are giddy that he delivered yet another rousing speech last week, but everyone else is wondering how this stimulus will bring unemployment down and how it will be “paid for.” We’ve been down this stimulus road before and all we have to show for it is more Obama speeches and fewer jobs. Our country is desperate for bold leadership and big ideas that will change the failing status quo.

It didn’t happen last night because the President’s number one concern is getting re-elected. Mr. Obama supplied further evidence for this charge by sending out a campaign email to supporters just prior to the speech that stated, “If you’re with me, let me know. And the campaign will make sure you are looped into our efforts to support this plan.”

How exactly does the billions in new taxpayer-funded government spending President Obama proposed last week mesh with the Super Committee’s mission to find $1.2 trillion in budget cuts over the next 10 years? Citizens United is closely monitoring the Super Committee proceedings and is poised to send 15,000 signed petitions to Democrat members Sen. Patty Murray and Rep. Chris Van Hollen urging them to make the Bush tax cuts permanent. Americans are struggling and one of the ways to help our economy is to guarantee our citizens and businesses that their taxes aren’t going up. It’s common sense that economic uncertainty discourages investment and growth.
