When I saw the following article yesterday, two questions came to mind:
1) Who writes
this crap Obama’s speeches?
2) Is anyone even listening anymore?
President Obama says he will use his upcoming State of the Union Address to “mobilize the country around the national mission of making sure our economy offers everyone who works hard a fair shot at opportunity and success.”
Mobilization? National mission? (Will we have to wear uniforms?)
….”Working folks are looking for the kind of stable, secure jobs that went overseas in the past couple decades. So next week, I’ll join companies and colleges and take action to boost the high-tech manufacturing that attracts the kind of good new jobs a growing middle class requires,” Obama said.
Oh, so now it’s not just Bush’s fault. Now it’s every POTUS “in the past couple decades.” Okey dokey…
…next week, I’ll be joined by college presidents as we lay out specific steps we can take to help more workers earn the skills they need for today’s new jobs. Later this month I’ll host CEOs at the White House to announce commitments we’re making to put more of the long-term unemployed back to work….
“I’ll keep doing everything I can to create new jobs and new opportunities for American families — with Congress, on my own, and with everyone willing to play their part.” He said the first order of business should be an expansion of unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed, and he also mentioned “wages and benefits,” education, health insurance and immigration reform.
“on my own” ? Oh, he must mean this: “We’re not just waiting for legislation, I’ve got a pen and I can use it to sign executive orders.”
I’m trying to follow O’s train of thought, but I got lost.
Could someone please help me out here?
First, he promises to mobilize the country (whatever that means). Then, he will meet with college presidents, who presumably will figure out how college kids with a Liberal-Arts degree in Transgendered Dance Theory (ok, I stole that line from Ben Shapiro) can find good-paying jobs. And CEO’s will be brought on board too.
And, first order of business? Yep, expansion of unemployment benefits.
Somehow, I have a feeling all of this has nothing to do with jobs for American citizens.
And everything to do with “immigration reform.”
