The GOP’s laser-like focus on jobs just cut the economy to pieces.
Orange Julius is firmly on the side of the One Percent At The Top, as if that was news or something.
To convince Obama how futile this effort is, at least in terms of getting legislation passed, House Speaker John Boehner’s office has come up with a new slogan and a snarky infographic to go along with it.
“All Roads”: New Infographic Looks at @WhiteHouse Plan to #PassTheBill,” reads the Twitter-friendly title of a new post on the Speaker’s blog.
Cutting through it all, the point is Republicans want Obama to end his public campaign to either build support for the bill or (more likely), align Democrats behind it and then run against Republicans for blocking the American Jobs Act. Right now Capitol Hill Republicans are putting a lot of effort into making sure it doesn’t reach that point. They’re trying to trip up Senate Democrats as they coalesce around the bill, and they’re insisting it’s “dead” in the House. This is part of that effort.
But the graphic’s kinda funny, so take a look.
Yeah, it looks like somebody in Boehner’s office went to Kinko’s. What, no Comic Sans font?
So what’s the Republican plan to create jobs? Why, to blame the unemployed.
If you’re dissatisfied with the economy, or unemployed, Herman Cain thinks you should take a long, hard look in the mirror.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal posted Wednesday, the up-and-coming GOP 2012 contender and former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza summed up his bewilderment about recent demonstrations on Wall Street.
“Don’t blame Wall Street,” Cain said. “Don’t blame the big banks. If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself.”
Right, so we’re back to jobs magically being spontaneously created by large groups of unemployed people, much like 18th century scholars thought maggots were created spontaneously by rotting meat. All we have to do is shame them into taking minimum wage jobs and then they’ll pull themselves up by the bootstraps and become CEOs though the power of CAPITALAWESOMEISM.
After all if you were a Real American, you’d be rich.
