Obviously the President's extremely urgent new
spending jobs bill -- that must be passed right now! -- won't even be considered in the Democrat-controlled Senate until sometime next month (maybe).
The president was in such a hurry to get this new spending going, everyone remembers, that during that address he said the phrase "right now" seven times. He didn't actually mean right now that night because the NFL season was opening a few minutes after his remarks.
But Obama did want to show how really urgent he said the situation was, even though it had taken him 961 days as president to say them. And even though from Day #1 of the brief Obama Era polls had shown jobs and the economy were the No. 1 priority among voters but he pursued healthcare and financial reforms first. And even though unemployment had been at or above 9% for 26 of the last 28 months.
So, given the president's professed urgency, the next day, Sept. 9, everyone asked where was his jobs legislation?
And, well, it seems the urgent jobs bill hadn't actually been written yet but should be ready in a week or two. When the laughter died, the White House said on second thought the legislation would be ready for a photo op the next Monday.
Well, here we are on the next Monday after that next Monday and we've just learned from the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, Dick Durbin, that actually it seems that body won't really be seriously getting into the legislation for a while yet. The Senate has some other more important business to handle. And then there's this month's congressional vacation, which in Washington is called "a recess," like elementary school.
Also obviously, the new "jobs bill" would simply be a money laundering scheme to pass taxpayer dollars to unions which then pass the money to the Democrat party. Also also obviously, the "jobs bill" has zero chance of ever passing, and everyone in DC knows this.
I hope everyone is enjoying the show that Obama is putting on, because it's costing your kids trillions of dollars.
