The "Great and the Good" Fall Further Out of Touch With Reality
In a recent CNN article titled “Obama goes on the road to promote jobs,” we see the following statement:
Obama’s senior strategist David Axelrod vowed Sunday that every part of the bill will reach a vote.
“The American people support every single plank of that bill, and we’re going to vote on every single one of them,” Axelrod said on ABC’s This Week.
Just what “American people” could Axelrod be referring to there? Considering that his boss’, [ Barack Obama’s] approval ratings are still at historically low levels due in large part to Obama’s first failed Stimulus 1.0 package of 2009, just what American people supposedly support every single plank in his current Stimulus 2.0 plan? That statement shows the Obama administration to be completely out of touch with the American people today. This seemingly ignorant statement as to the reality of how Americans are very disgusted with Obama’s failed policies is not just being parroted by Obama’s administrative policy-puppets, but are also being parroted by the majority of the Liberal Democratic Party of today. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Shultz chimed in with the out-of-touch-with-reality rhetoric about how the American people support Obama’s fake jobs plan, which was voted down in the U.S. Senate with Democratic opposition.
On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said, “Polling shows overwhelming support for Congress to pass the entire bill. It’s absolutely critical.”
Just what “polling” is the DNC chief propagandist referring to there? Sure, if you poll 50 uninformed people, 3/4 of them Union teachers begging for more Democratic bailouts at taxpayer expense, I suppose you could see some support for the Union vote-buying scheme known as Obama stimulus 2.0.0. As far as mainstream working class people supporting Obama’s fake jobs bill, that statement is an outright lie. The simple fact of our current 9.1% unemployment rate proves that to be untrue, unless the American people today enjoy being out of work while the Great and Good of the DNC, like DWS enjoy $16.00 muffins, Platinum-plated health-care and enormous retirement packages after “serving” in congress for as little as two short years.
A recently disgraced member of the “Democratic Great and Good club”, Mr. Anthony Weiner will be receiving a generous pension package even though he was ousted from Congress for basically being shown to be a sexting pervert and a total disgrace to the words “Honorable Congressman.” From allvoices.com:
Even after stepping down like this, Anthony Weiner will still get all the retirement benefits from the Congress. He will be eligible for a congressional pension of up to $46,244 each year. In addition to that Weiner will even be able to collect the balance of his Congressional Thrift Savings Plan, which currently stands at $216,011.
Another member of the Democratic Great and Good society, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also parroted Obama’s lie about the American people supporting every plank of his Stimulus package 2.0.0, even though Reid voted no in the Senate vote on Obama’s jobs bill. Reid stuck to parroting Obama’s lie about Republicans not putting forth any bills to encourage job creation:
Speaking to a conference in Las Vegas on Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid urged the GOP to “get off of this kick of saying that the only thing that will create jobs is to lower taxes.”
“I say to my other friends on the other side of the aisle, if you don’t like what we’re trying to do, give us something that is constructive that we can do to create jobs,” said Reid, D-Nevada.
Senate Republicans gave Harry Reid this jobs bill, and the House also passed jobs bills here, that Reid ignored and refused to put up for a vote, and the Veterans jobs bill that Obama and Reid tried to claim as their own were all put forth by Republicans. So much for the lie that republicans have not proposed any jobs bills. Harry Reid also nuked the U.S Senate in an attempt to block the vote on the jobs bill.
In the ultimate example of just how far out of touch with reality the Great and the Good of Liberal-la-la land are today, even though Obama’s jobs bill went down in flames in the Senate, Obama is still harping at House Republicans to pass every part of it: (Talk to your Senate puppet Mr. Reid, Mr. President, instead of the petty partisan campaign ploy of blaming Republicans for your failed policies)
During the trip, “the president will challenge Congress to get to work this week passing every element of the American Jobs Act piece by piece,” Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.
The first part Obama will focus on is a proposal to prevent teacher layoffs, as well as saving jobs of police officers and firefighters, Earnest said.
Every single “job’ mentioned in the above statement just happens to be…. Union jobs. “Prevent teacher lay-offs?” I am unaware of not one single student who has arrived at school to be told there is no teacher available for class in any school in America this year. NONE. As a matter of fact, the last stage puppet Obama used to show the people just who he “will put back to work” with his jobs bill….wasn’t even out of work at the time. The Great and the Good of the elitist Liberal Party want to “prevent” layoffs, “create or save” millions of jobs, and generally fool the American people into telling Congress to give them another half a trillion in dollars of debt to be strapped onto the backs of our children. All in order to fill Obama’s campaign coffers for his perpetual reelection campaign of 2012 by paying off big labor Unions. The reality of the situation says the American people are, in fact, wise to your fake jobs bill to pay off Unions and crony capitalists just like you did with the stolen stimulus bill cash, and DO NOT WANT ANOTHER FAKE STIMULUS BILL. 2012 just can’t get here fast enough.
