Republicans agree: They don't want job creation while Obama is still president

Post by Guest on Wed Oct 12, 2011 12:38 pm

Here's what the Republican Party accomplished yesterday:

They defeated president Obama's jobs bill by filibustering it in the Senate. Along with obstruction from House Republicans, the GOP is refusing to even allow the jobs bill to come up for a vote.
Their presidential candidates held a debate on the economy in which they failed to offer even a single idea about how to create jobs now.

Meanwhile, on the Democratic side, we saw a couple of things happen that we normally don't.

Despite some bellyaching from some corners of the caucus, nearly all Senate Democrats stuck together and voted against the Republican filibuster, providing 51 votes to move forward with Obama's jobs bill. That wasn't enough to clear the 60 vote threshold to move past a filibuster, but it means a majority of Senators want a jobs bill.
After nearly three years of giving Republicans the benefit of the doubt, President Obama's political machine finally said what they needed to say: Republicans are acting in bad faith, trying to sabotage the nation's economy merely to score political points.

What right do they have? I mean seriously do they honestly think they're the leaders of the free world and not the president. It makes them look very bad.

Yes, Hunter, they do think they are the leaders. Have you ever seen one of John Boehner's press conferences? He stands in front of American flags that are pinned just right so he can look "presidential". Ever see Nancy Pelosi do that?

On a side note, pinning those flags just right for news conferences and appearances is a paying job for some lucky person in DC!

They are misjudging the 99%. The movement will make the Tea Party a real joke. I hope many of them jump ship into this movement, since it was taken over by others that are phony 1%.
