Pithy Comments About Skippy's Jobs Speech

To start the ball rolling,  here are some good ones.  Please feel free to add your own!

“3:47   Watching the members stroll in, it’s like a parade of all the kids you couldn’t stand in high school.
4:44   There are some good ideas in there, really. But it reminds me of Wall Street’s pony theory: “This thing is so full of horse s***, there must be a pony in there somewhere.”  Well, there is a pony. And it’s drowning in donkey crap.

Didn’t watch/hear it. Stuck commuting on 405….much more pleasant experience 🙂
I’m sure it was full of lies, “me”, and “I”‘s.

This is just a rerun of the last one. A few billion to union jobs, a few billion to blue totally broke states so they are not forced to lay off public employees ‘remember this is jobs created or saved’. A few billion to Ivy League colleges to study the problem. Last but not least a few billion to green energy jobs. What does Joe six-pack get out of this? Nothing, Nada, zilch.

I watched it. It was much of the same old tune at first – We have roads and bridges that need repair, right now. There is a bridge in Kentucky (he actually said this) that can be repaired, workers are just waiting. School windows and roofs (yawn. Sorry, like I said, we’ve heard it before) can be improved. It was most interesting. He was very forceful and direct as he spoke and many, many times said they needed to pass this Bill RIGHT NOW, stressing that if they pass this RIGHT NOW, all these good things can take place.

The Govt receives $130 billion every year in fuel taxes to keep up with bridge and road repair, wonder where this money goes?
Unless you belong to a union you will not be helped at all.

Fact: A school built by union labor cost 28% more then a school built by local workers.

I watched it. I wanted to be able to say I heard the lies for myself. Every single one. Nothing new. Everything was recycled, with only a little change here and there to make it seem like new, so at least BO was green. It was a campaign speech, declaring that people couldn’t wait another 14 months. I don’t know why not, considering the fact that the Dems didn’t come up with anything for two years when they had total control. It will only be another two years, only this time without the Dems having total control. He cited Warren… Read more »

All you need to know about Obama was his very first act, gutting NASA. The same guy that claims we need to be number one in technology.

Not one word said about giveing American manufactures a REAL incentive to COME BACK, No tax breaks, no nothing, this is 500 billion plan to do nothing that will really acomplish a come back, just more paint on a old board. It sounded good, but it put the pressure on the Congress to do it his way or it will be thier fault if things dont improve as he invisions. This econmony will not fix itself until the factories open up here again and the IRS gets out of everyones pockets. ..and this equal tax thing is a joke, 2%… Read more »
