Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act, or Barack Obama's Own Job Act?
-by Scott Rohter, September 2011
“The only Job Bills that Barack Obama cares about are the bills that he needs to get his own job back in November. Those aren’t job bills, they are dollar bills! The American Jobs Act is only an act to protect
Barack Obama's own job in November!” – Scott Rohter
He will deliver the Sun, and the Moon, and the stars in the sky too! Barack Obama is about the best darn vacuum cleaner salesman that I’ve ever seen! President Obama literally promised the American people everything last night in that speech he gave about jobs, but the kitchen sink! He promised to do everything except tie your shoelaces for you when you get dressed in the morning, if you just pass his Jobs Bill. A four thousand dollar tax credit for businesses that hire unemployed workers, who have been out of work for more than six months. Two thousand dollars into the pockets of every American family regardless of whatever! New roads, new bridges, and new schools. The list was long and inclusive. I lost track of everything that he promised us, if we just pass his Jobs Bill. And he is going to do all of this without raising taxes for the most part, and while cutting the Federal Deficit too! Talk about pie in the sky, or having your cake and eating it too! He promised to be everything to all people last night. And you know if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is! He must have said, “Pass this jobs bill,” twenty times if he said it once! And he almost had me convinced.
But the way that President Obama delivered that speech last night, sounded more like Ron Popeil delivering an infomercial for ‘the Vegimatic,’ than it did the President of the United States addressing a joint session of Congress. It sounded more to me like a sales pitch, than a speech. No wonder that several conservative Republican stalwarts refused to be present at this joint session of Congress. They didn’t want to be used as stage props for an Obama campaign commercial! And I don’t blame them, either. I can just hear the master of late night television marketing now, pitching his famous ‘Vegimatic.’ Why it slices, it dices, it does 14 different things, all for the low, low price of only $4995. And if you call right now, we will throw in absolutely free, a such and such, that will do the only thing that the amazing Vegimatic doesn’t do!… But wait, there’s more! If you buy right now, we will include a second Vegimatic for no additional cost, plus we will reduce the low, low price of $4995 to only $1995, and we will still throw in the free such and such, that does this and that, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah… and on, and on, and on!
I have only one thing to say. If jobs were so important to President Obama, then why did it take him three years to address this problem? Why weren’t American jobs a priority, before it was time for him to run for re-election? It sounds like another worthless campaign promise to me. Hell, he hasn’t fulfilled all of the last campaign promises yet! The only Job Bills that Barack Obama cares about are the bills that he needs to get his own job back in November, and those aren’t job bills, they are dollar bills! The American Jobs Act is only an act to protect Barack Obama's own job in November! But that won’t stop Obama from making more promises that he won’t keep! EXCUSE ME IF I DON’T BELIEVE ANY OF THIS B.S. ABOUT CREATING MORE JOBS.
Whoever came up with the name for this Bill should be given an A+ for innovation. However if the Deficit Reduction Act of 2011, which President Obama wanted so badly, caused America to go another 1.3 trillion dollars deeper into debt, then the American Jobs Act which the President is pushing so hard for right now, will probably cause another 1.3 trillion Americans to lose their jobs! If Richard Nixon could have delivered a speech the way that Barack Obama does, then he probably wouldn’t have ever been impeached, or forced to resign!
I think that Barack Obama is about the best, darn vacuum cleaner salesman that I’ve ever seen! He could even sell ice to Eskimos! He could probably go to work for Ron Popeil when his short stint in the WhiteHouse is over next fall! I think he would make the perfect sales person to market the GL5. That was the little can of black spray paint that you applied to the bald spot on the top of your head, that was supposed to make it look like you were growing hair!
