What a silly, tiresome man. Does he hope to win us over by browbeating and boring us to death? Obama Makes Plea to ‘Pass This Bill’ 100-Plus Times
In six speeches during the course of seven days, President Obama has hammered home his call for Congress to act on his $447 billion jobs plan, saying some version of the phrase “pass this bill” more than 100 times.At times the nag-offensive descends into . . . I don't quite know what to call this:
The president repeated the rallying cry 18 times in his speech to Congress, another 18 times at his stop in Richmond, Va., 12 times in his Rose Garden address, 18 times in Columbus, Ohio., 24 times in Raleigh, N.C., and 12 times at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Gala in Washington, D.C., for a grand total of (drum roll, please) 102.
But the real punchline is that he knows it can't possibly become law. It's just a campaign ploy to shift blame for the high unemployment rate to the GOP.
And by the way:
(Bloomberg) — Applications for U.S. unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week to the highest level since the end of June, underscoring the risk of further weakness in the labor market.Even his own party has had enough:
Jobless claims climbed by 11,000 to 428,000 in the week ended Sept. 10 that included the Labor Day holiday, figures from the Labor Department showed today in Washington. Economists surveyed by Bloomberg News projected a drop in claims to 411,000, according to the median forecast.
