Today, in his weekly address, President Obama called them out on it. Sarah Jones:
Coming in for the partisan kill against blatant Republican obstructionism to murder what’s left of our economy since they were last in power in hopes of regaining power, Obama pointed out, “Since then, Congress has only passed a few parts of that jobs bill, like a tax cut that’s allowing working Americans to keep more of your paycheck every week.” He continued, “And that’s important but Congress hasn’t acted on enough of the ideas in that bill that would make a difference and help create jobs right now.”
Pursing his lips in disapproval, he condemned the Republicans, “There is no excuse for that. Not when so many people are still looking for work.”
In typical Obama fashion, he ended on an encouraging note, “My message to Congress is let’s get to work.” I picture him patting John Boehner on the head and offering him ice cream if he’ll put down the golf club and the Whiskey and just stumble on into the House for a few minutes to press Yes on a few jobs bill items.
This is what Republicans can expect for their unpatriotic cheering yesterday to disappointing economic news.
Republicans, you’re on notice. Get to work. Do something for the American people.
Not gonna happen. Republicans have been married to the idea of sabotaging the economy to gain full control of the country literally since the day Barack Obama took office.
Also let's remember that because Republicans have blocked jobs bills, we've done nothing sisnce the stimulus ran out at the end of 2010. Which is precisely what Republicans say we should have done in the first place. And surprise, we've stalled out for the last 18 months, more or less. This is now Obama's fault.
Funny how that works, huh.
