Dr. Obama’s Miracle Jobs Tonic

“Government cannot ‘create’ jobs it can only allow favorable conditions for prosperity; or it invents new government jobs that are—by design—vampiric and feed upon the real jobs creator (the private sector) and its employees. Note: In the private sector, people who work are called employees. Marxist government working people are called “workers”…sort of like ants.”

—Sher Zieve, Canada Free Press

“A popular definition of insanity, variously attributed to Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, and Ben Franklin, is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. By this standard the President of the United States is clearly insane.”

—Matt Patterson, Is Obama Insane? (The American Thinker)

Despite my long-held conviction that all liberals are in desperate need of emergency electroshock therapy, it’s beginning to dawn on me that the American people these days are also quite a few cards short of a full deck.  After all, we’re the ones who, in the midst of a worldwide war against Islamic terrorism, elevated a glib Marxist with the middle name “Hussein” to the highest office in the land.  And now we expect this same guy, a man who has for three years presided over the most anti-capitalist administration in American history, to suddenly promulgate policies that will reinvigorate the very private sector he so obviously despises?  Fat chance.  Barack Obama’s latest incursion into the economic sphere, a location as unfamiliar to him as the final resting place of the Titanic–where, incidentally, he is taking the entire country–sports a sticker price of $447 billion, and is essentially a repackaged, cheaper version of his last trillion dollar “shovel-ready” stimulus package.  Jobs? The only thing Obama knows about jobs is that in 499 days, he won’t have one.

But the man can read a teleprompter like nobody’s business, and the danger, of course, is that those poor, trusting fools in the hinterlands will fall for this medicine show malarkey and start lining up to buy bottles of the new and improved miracle elixir that Obama promises will definitely cure their rheumatiz this time while also eliminating the sneeze, the wheeze, and financial miseries.

“The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple,” grins Dr. Obama, holding up a murky bottle of his Miracle Cure.  “To put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more jobs for construction workers, more jobs for teachers, more jobs for veterans, and more jobs for the long-term unemployed.”

And how do we know all this?  Because the good doctor says so, that’s how.  Step right up, Ladies and Gentlemen, “Pass this jobs bill, and we can put people to work rebuilding America. Everyone here knows that we have badly decaying roads and bridges all over this country. Our highways are clogged with traffic. Our skies are the most congested in the world.”

But, as John Hayward points out:

Obama already grabbed a trillion dollars for “infrastructure.” How can we still have all this decay and devastation? Where did all that money go? Why didn’t that bridge between Ohio and Kentucky get fixed last time? Shouldn’t Obama, his cabinet, his cronies, and the recipients of his lavish “stimulus” grants be answering those questions under oath? (The Obama Jobs Speech – Human Events)

Picky, picky.  Dr. Obama’s new and improved tonic is unrivaled in scope, and warranted by the doctor himself to contain nary a particle of any injurious substance.  No other formula available is as strong or as efficacious.  So step right up.  Guaranteed to regrow prosperity or your money back.  Er, strike that last.

    I read that piece by Sher Ziev over at CFP yesterday. What a perfect description of the roll of government in “job creation”.

  2. Right Thinking says:

    The empty suit is a fool and he was elected by fools. Doing nothing or resigning are the only two viable options for Berry.

  3. LD Jackson says:

    I watched all but the first few minutes of the speech and I thought he came across as one ticked off individual. It’s clear what he was trying to do. Full campaign mode and trying to twist the debate around to blame everyone but himself. Oh how he wants to be able to claim these ideas have always had broad support from both parties. This, so he can blame the Republicans if and when they drag their heels on the American Jobs Act.

    The only thing Obama knows about jobs is that in 499 days, he won’t have one.

    And lining up for the bottles of vinegar elixir they will all desperately wanting to believe this deceiver’s hope and change now pass the damn jobs bill speech.

    Obama the deceiver. How can so many people put their faith in one such a narcissist?

    This is about Obama keeping his job while emptying our pockets. WAKE UP AMERICA.

  5. Bob Mack says:

    From Andrew Malcolm in the L.A. Times:

    With the national debt already increasing $3 million every minute of every day, Obama wants to repair and modernize 35,000 schools. Obama wants $35 billion to go toward salaries for teachers, firefighters and police.

    Obama wants $140 billion largely to update roads and bridges. Obama wants another $245 billion in business and individual tax relief. Obama also wants to extend unemployment benefits.

    And Obama wants it all right now. Seriously. Now that his Martha’s Vineyard vacation is over, this situation is urgent.

    …Aides said Americans should trust the president…

  6. bunkerville says:

    Now he will get in his airplane and fly fly fly around the country and try and sell his snake oil. I really don’t know if I can stand to watch the same action for the next year. I would have thought eveyone would have caught on by now.

  7. samiam60 says:

    Love it Bob and once again you drive home the obvious. The Snake Oil Salesman will ride again on the Tax Payer Funded Air Farce One!

  8. Joanna says:

    ohhh good grief!
    I did not listen to obama’s speech, but read a transcript, and I would say:
    if you want to create jobs?…
    RESIGN!!!! (and take your thugs with you)
    all of European markets were down today, because…
    ahhh !!! ….
    they do not trust obama !!!!
    …I am in shock!!!!!….

  9. Obama’s new tonic has about as much chance of getting our economy growing as does in getting hair to grow on my bald head. But it’s free, right? When does he want to spend this $447 billion? Right away, of course. And, when do the spending cuts take place to pay for this tonic? Mañana. It will forever be, mañana!

  10. TexasFred says:

    The cartoon sums up the Obama bullshit tour perfectly…

  11. Bob, just happen to see this a couple days ago— as true now as it was when we were– younger-
