With practically zero support for this sham even from within his own party, President Obama’s only hope now is a “parody of himself” stimulus:

President Obama used his weekly radio address to urge Congress “to get its act together” and pass his jobs bill.

“It’s been almost three weeks since I sent the American Jobs Act to Congress – three weeks since I sent them a bill that would put people back to work and put money in people’s pockets,” Obama said. “And now I want it back. It is time for Congress to get its act together and pass this jobs bill so I can sign it into law.”

Obama then rattled off a few self-defeating stories of economic hardship, which is an approach that makes no sense whatsoever: “The economy continues to go to hell, so here are some tales of economic woe to serve as examples of why we should be doing more of what’s undoubtedly only made things worse for these people.”

Roll the desperation:

    "It’s been almost three weeks since I sent the American Jobs Act to Congress – …”

    And it's been how many weeks since the DumbOCrap Senate has passed a Federal budget ?

    It used to be that the primary advantage of the incumbent president was that he could campaign from the Rose Garden as the leader of the country pre-occcupied with leading. Obama does not relate to that. He still sees himself as the community organizer leading an angry mob of protesters in the street with his bullhorn in front of a company's headquarters. His former die-hard followers have died hard including the fawning MSM that is now leading the reporting on Solyndra and lately, F&F. Even his role models Castro and Chavez mock him. He is an effete pretender, all style and no substance.

    This is not a "jobs bill", it`s a $1-1/2 Trillion tax increase bill. The far left may love it; it sticks it to the man, taxes the rich and regulates (read stifles) business; They love that stuff, but thank GOD, congress on both sides of the aisle sees it as a no-win.

    Oblunder rattles on, not aware at all that the majority of the country sees he has no clothes. (sorry for that visual) He`s fooling fewer and fewer ! Gooooood !

    ..soon Dear Leader won't even be able to get arrested in Washington. Ohhhh the incredible satisfaction of watching this epic socialist loser crash and burn!!

    He left out the poor Jose Menendiz who's father was beheaded on the border due to the fact that Washington D.C won't pass a Jobs Bill.

    I really would like to see Obama in Dredlocks. He needs a Lady Gaga makeover. Nobody is listening to his BS anymore, so let's make watching him more fun.

    If I had photoshop, I would do this. But, because of the government, I can't afford it.
    BECAUSE they have passed too many job/stimulus bills already.

    It's amazing what a little pity/party can do. Like his jobs bill is going to save "Destiny"

    I think he made all those up.

    "This is not a "jobs bill", it`s a $1-1/2 Trillion tax increase bill."

    It's not even that. These cretin have no intention of passing this farce – it's naught but political positioning… "Ya know, if they'd a passed my bill last year you'd all be fat and happy now, but the racist, obstructionist, conservatives…. " yadayadayada gag me with a stim shovel already.

    Were this sham of a bill to be passed and implemented, it would be little more than I first described, but you are correct; this and most everything this admin. does is well planned in advance. We are little more than pawns; sometimes, I feel like no more than "dust" on the pawns; insignificant in the overall leftist scheme of things !

    It`s encouraging to see that fewer and fewer people are fooled now.

    Joyanna,

    Of late, I ( and I imagine others ) have come to view P'BO as PINO. pResident In Name Only. His faux 'policies' are dead in the water, as others have noted even the LSM is tuning him out and NO ONE expects anything from him. Period.

    I'm already moving past a lot of the 'fray' at MM's where regular posters passionately argue for this Rep. candidate or 'that' one..? MY biggest issues have become, how do we NULLIFY the bs this Leftist has attempted to implement 'today'?

    As Michelle often says, "We don't need to send people to Washington "to get things done" ( we need to send some people there to get things UNDONE! )"

    My strategy has been to try to point out how self-defeating it is to board Hannity's "but Obama" choo-choo. We (Tea Party conservatives) need to make it crystal clear that we are NOT going to vote LOTE next year or ever again. We are already seeing that they are getting the message. We are putting their carefully laid plans in disarray as they read the polls that keep telling them that their various "front runners" just cannot break out. Romney gained almost none of the support that abandoned Perry last week. He is stuck at 24%.

    This means that they are in big trouble. They can't support Obama again but there is no reason to believe that the GOP can produce a candidate they like that can win even if they spend TWO billion dollars.

    No one wants to say it but the Tea Party has jelled and we are scaring the hell out of the establishment. Obama seems to be planning to win on the crest of a wave of radical left-wing protest while the Republicans fumble along.

    We are making it more and more clear that there is a substantial and growing number of us who are looking to vote 3rd party next year. We need to find an Abe Lincoln, not a Ronald Reagan. Cain?

    Phil,

    Good points as always and you'll note, more times than not ( as a fellow Tea Party mbr. ) I find myself siding w. you! It's frustrating that even amongst conservatives there's still this stigma they can't get past?

    Yes, we can RUN a conservative AS a conservative and WIN! Either they don't get it or a good many have let their drive and desire for "spirited debate" get the best of them!

    The mental block is with those who buy into the fear and allow themselves to be easily manipulated by the "Republican Uber Alles" party loyalists. It sometimes seems like they are in the majority in the MM threads but they aren't. They are just more vocal and nasty. As we have seen over the past few weeks, the Tea Party backlash is substantial and has appeared to have frozen the dirty Rove money in its tracks. INHO, the noseholder population is shrinking fast and will shrink faster if Cain stays strong.

    The GOP leadership just doesn't know what to do about us anymore. They seem to be suffering from the "yips". They aren't as cocksure of themselves these days and keep making bigger and bigger mistakes.

    The response to the FL primary scheduling, for instance, is a huge mistake that may very well open up a big honking opportunity for a conservative to either gain the support of the party or threaten to break away and run independent if they work against us as they did in DE, AK, CA, NV, AZ, NH and elsewhere.

    It would be so easy for the GOP leadership to simply walk away from the dirty globalist money and embrace the Tea Party rather than fighting us. They would once again find the wind at their backs and momentum on their side. They would also find that they don't need half of the money to get re-elected they thought they did when they were selling us cancer.

    I trust you understand that you are siding with a lying sack of sh!t?

    Ah fiddle me bones … does he not see the irony in lamenting the lamentable stories of those whom his policies have so adversely affected? What a dumba$$.
