In other words, a complete and utter failure, just like Obama.

How are we supposed to know how his previous jobs plan worked out, since congress keeps blocking and delaying anything he tried to put forth.

It will keep the damage the Republicans did to the economy from being as bad as it could be?

So possibly good, but never able to be proven due to a Republican filibuster?
 
2012-01-05 11:54:12 AM  
When Republicans obstruct EVERYTHING, his plan won't matter. But at least he has one.
 
2012-01-05 11:54:46 AM  
It'll be blocked by nihilistic shiatheads, or eventually passed in a horrifically watered-down form that still manages to help somewhat but is held up as evidence that Taxbongo's plans don't work?

So, almost enough, but ruined by Republican obstructionism? I hate summer sequels.

We really need a "TROLL" button next to the "SMART" and "FUNNY" ones. That way we can acknowledge a troll without having to actually quote it.

4) Republicans point to Obama and say, "See? He just doesn't know how to get things done. Vote for more Republicans."
5) Stupid Americans actually do what the Republicans tell them to do.

Unless it involves a slew of tax cuts on corporate capital gains, it's a failure right out of the gate.

His economic plans, hampered though they've been, have been largely successful. We're out of the recession and have had a decent trend of job growth for some time.
 
2012-01-05 12:02:13 PM  
That's a massive bit of chum in the water along with a nice, juicy chunk of bait for the obstructionist Republicans in Congress.

I wonder if they'll take it?

Lost Thought 00: Unless it involves a slew of tax cuts on corporate capital gains, it's a failure right out of the gate.


Even if it were, the GOP would still shut it down. Obama can't even pass a payroll tax cut extension without massive whining from "Taxed Enough Already" republicans who apparently want higher taxes on the middle class. His last jobs plan was almost all TAXCUTSTAXCUTSTAXCUTS. Still no movement.
 
2012-01-05 12:02:54 PM  
You mean that'll either die in the House because House Republicans have the demeanor of 5-year-olds or die in the Senate because neither side have balls.

Is that what you meant subby?
 
2012-01-05 12:03:11 PM  
His jobs plan is estimated to create 5 million jobs each month for the next 10 years.

Later revised down to 5 jobs each month for 10 months at a cost of $250K per $30K/year job.

/Keynesianism!

Ayup. 22 consecutive months of private sector job growth.

Subby, you missed the great Summer of Recovery during which the economy and a lot of other stuff recovered.

Too bad Obama followed that up with the Fall of Fall.

But Mittens assured me he had created more jobs than President Obummer!

Ahh ageism.

Why is he trying to placate the youth vote....did his approval rating go down with that demographic? Does it have something to do with OWS?

What about all those middle aged people who don't have any jobs...why not give them jobs instead of these kids? It would probably be better for the economy if older people could start paying their bills and mortgage again...the kids are just gonna buy drugs and the money is gonna disappear into the underground econmy not really herlping anyone but the drug dealers.

We had the Summer of Recovery which was when the House and the Senate where controlled by the Dems.

How did that work out?

So, blocking his jobs bill worked?

There's not much a president can do to create jobs. About the only thing the government can do to create jobs is hire people.
 
2012-01-05 12:12:38 PM  
Subby, experts predict the GOP will not let it pass unless it's tied to giveaways to the richest people and corporations?

WTF are you talking about?
Biden and Obama announced in either May or June that there would be a Summer of Recovery.
Nothing was filibustered. Nothing.

How did that work out?

I know you want to keep blaming the GOP for everything, but the "Summer of Recovery" was all Obama. All fail.

And the money to pay them has to come from someone......

Why does it seem like one of those creative accounting scams....or like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic?
 
2012-01-05 12:18:22 PM  
I see the trolls trying to pretend that the previous plans ever even got a chance are here in force. What's up guys? Having a good time? Haven't seen you much lately, what with it becoming increasingly hard to come up with even bogus defenses for the GOP primary candidates' insanity, but at least you always have a chance to shine in the Obama threads. Can't ever go wrong claiming things that never even happened are failures, amirite?

It failed to do what the GOP intended it to do: stall the economic recovery until they could slip a DERPing republitard into the White House to take credit for regression-to-the-mean.

The GOP's professed, #1 priority is to make Obama a 1-term President. Any economic recovery puts that priority in danger. The GOP's economic agenda is perfectly clear here.

5) Stupid Americans actually do what the Republicans tell them to do.


6) Employment numbers continue to languish after GOP takes White House.
7) Republicans insist that "it's not the government's role to create jobs!!!"
 
2012-01-05 12:34:43 PM  
Still, it's *one* more jobs plan than the Republicans have put forth thus far.
 
2012-01-05 12:34:44 PM  
You mean Republicans will block it and it will therefore have no economic effect subby? Probably.
 
2012-01-05 12:35:40 PM  
I'll just leave this here...

FTFA: "A major reason for Obama's record high score this year: Democrats took away a significant number of seats from Republicans in the 2006 and 2008 elections, resulting in big majorities in the House and Senate for the president's party.

But Sarah Binder, a congressional analyst at the Brookings Institution, says there's another key reason he scored so well. She says he only took an official position on issues that were really important to him - those that he knew he had a very good chance of winning. He picked his battles carefully."

Furthermore, they're only tallying votes, not how laden with Republican assjuice the bills had to be before they got to those votes.
