Obama jokes about shovel-ready jobs

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.
