By The Right Scoop


Yesterday before Obama’s speech in NC he was holding some kind of jobs council meeting before his speech where someone was talking about the difficulty of the permitting process. The man speaking mentions that Obama’s team probably clued him in on the permitting difficulties after he implemented the stimulus and Obama joked that “shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected”:

This is just offensive. One trillion dollars wasted on a stimulus that didn’t work and now he’s joking about being wrong on shovel-ready jobs? Running up our debt by one trillion dollars at one fell swoop is something to joke about now? We are at 9.1% unemployment by normal figures and people haven’t been able to find a job for years and all of a sudden shovel-ready jobs is a punchline?

Time to go cling to my religion and my guns because this guy isn’t doing it for me.

    My shovel is ready to fill a truck full of progressive crap out of DC in 2012, now that will be moving the USA forward.
    Defeat Obama in 2012!
    PS. just who the hell does fatbutt Imelt think he is? Boycott GE

    • Anonymous

      That FATCA tax that will kick in in Jan 2013…if it is not repealed…will be a kick in the gut to global companies like GE.
      A 40% tax on every outgoing currency transaction?
      That’s gonna leave a mark.

      Maybe those rumors of Imelt leaving GE and going to work for Obama full time are true.

        The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act of 2010 is like all the radical Legislation passed by the Progressive/Transformational Obama. The Rules and Regulations are being written so some unelected GS worker has a job. If the the World was so bad before Obama how come all the regulations for Banking, Healthcare,Recovery, etc., will go into affect after his first and final term?
        The first battle in the war against the Obama transformation was the mid-term elections in 2010. It was like the Battle of Midway, the turning point and Conservative Victory is in sight for 2012.
        Defeat Obama in 2012 and repeal ALL of his Transformal Agenda!

        Me too…which is not easy, since they are into…everything.
        And now with Obama subsidizing GE by granting even more government contracts, and the punitive legislation against products that compete with GE [lightbulbs] we are being forced to buy GE products whether we like it or not.

      That’s a good article.
      But it predates O’s rule in the last 2.5 years.
      I read it some time ago…and he was right about a lot of things.
      But he was wrong that Obama wants to take over 1/5th of the economy…Obama wants to take over it All.

      A lot of people didn’t want to believe that we were in for the worst possible scenarios by electing Obama.
      And some of them still haven’t awakened to that fact.

    I think that the BoyKing’s BS is shovel-ready.
    He keeps shoveling it.
    And fewer and fewer people are buying into it.

      Obama no doubt can count right on up to the event horizon of infinity.

      That was just OBlahBlah’s way of whining about the stress, IMO.
      He’s not used to being held accountable for his actions.
      He is desperate for some sympathy.

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/OUNFNNK4VWVNQZWD743RKW5UYM jonathon b

        you are probably right, but i was just reminded of my prediction(revelation) a couple of months back about him not making it through his 1 term.

        • Anonymous

          I agree, but I thought his own minions would have dispatched him already.
          They are on the brink of a total melt down.

            yup, as i see it the only ones that believe he will be re-elected also believe in pixie dust

    INTERESTING TO WATCH JEFFRY IMMELT TO OBBAMMMAS RIGHT, IT APPEARS TO ME LIKE THEY KNEW THE PREMIS OF THE QUESTION COMING, IMMELT STARTS LAUGHING BEFORE OBBAMMA EVEN FINISH’S HIS ANSWER.
    WE HAVE ALL BEEN HAD!

    • Anonymous

      I noticed that too.
      And, yeah we’ve been had…in more ways than one.

      But since Barry has admitted this before, I just figured that PattyMelt was laughing in advance because he’d heard it before and was being a good little Obama buttboy by helping to ridicule the question and thereby ridicule any ‘silly’ criticisms.
      If you’ll notice, the woman to O’s right does the same thing.

    He forgot the punchline of the joke which was for him to ask for another 3 trillion for the shovel ready jobs from before and new shovel ready jobs now. Oh wait that isnt a joke that is the reality of his policies.

    We were all laughing when he first used the term “shovel ready.” It was a joke to us bright conservatives from the beginning. What a numskull!

    We have had those damnable “Recovery” road signs all over the state for quite awhile now and not one shovel of dirt has been turned except to put up those freakin’ signs. A local radio show had a guest on who goes by (tongue in cheek) Captain Stimulus, he did the math on the Recovery signs and it worked out to about Ten Thousand dollars per sign. That’s where the money went.

      Same thing here in California, Cal-Trans it standing around all up and down I-5 and even on weekends, and then they have a CHP officer parked there for their safety. Big money wasted every where out here.

      “That’s where the money went.”

      If it were possible to funnel some of that money into Dem coffers for the 2012 election expenses, I think they would have/may have done it.
      Aren’t there billions that are unaccounted for?
      Who is going to prosecute them for it?
      It seems to me that having that many billions to spend would be more temptation than any Liberal could resist.

      “Captain Stimulus” <– Love it.

    This is a perfect commercial. Unless Obama’s ties to terror are exposed earlier, the GOP needs to use this in a commercial.
