Actions not Words: A Response to President Obama’s speech – 9/8/2011

President Obama gave his much anticipated job speech to Congress today in which he addressed the issue of the economy and the need for the Federal Government to help in the creation of more jobs and stimulate the economy.

Or if you have been following politics but missed the speech; it’s the same bulls*** he has been saying the last three years. Bravo Mr. President for recycling but too bad that it can’t count towards your contribution to protecting the environment.

My opinion regarding the speech before and after has been very simple; he can cram it. Actions speak louder than words but unfortunately President Obama doesn’t seem to realize it. Speeches don’t solve anything unless you back it up with actions.

America is suffering through one of the worst economic crisis in its history and unfortunately than we elected to save us is a delusional coward who feels his words can conjure spells while trying to appease his political enemies at every opportunity.

With that said it’s guaranteed that the American Job Act will endure a long partisan battle in Congress. Spoiler Alert: the GOP will water it down into something more harmful for the American people while demanding more cuts, but President Obama will give in and claim it as a victory.

During the Great Depression, President Roosevelt enacted a series of work programs as means to strengthen the nation infrastructure and reboot the economy. When President Obama took office, proposed a Stimulus Packet that wasted billions of dollars in the hopes that it would magically reboot the national economy.

But hopefully the American Job Act actually dose more than just waste billions in the hopes that magic solves the economic crisis. I really would love to be proven wrong on this issue but if President Obama continues down this path than his Presidency will end with Rush Limbaugh announcing on his show “I told you so.”
