President Obama's long awaited jobs speech

 Saturday, September 03, 2011

This was in response to an article in the Washington Examiner that was talking about the upcoming speech that the president will give on Thursday.  You are going to love this. This guy needs to run for office because he nails it.


The Article:
President Obama plans to lay out his long-awaited jobs speech before a joint session of Congress next Wednesday evening -- which happens to be the same night as a Republican presidential debate.
 "I respectfully request the opportunity to address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7, 2011 at 8 p.m.," Obama wrote in a letter sent Wednesday to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.
 White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says the timing of the speech is not aimed at overshadowing the next Republican debate, which is cosponsored by NBC News and Politico, and is scheduled to air at the same time as the planned presidential address.
The Response:

Keep Calm and Carry On . . .

August 29, 2011

Dear President Obama,

In the interest of history let’s do a little sum up thus far. You “wrote” a book. Confessed your transgressions. Promised your fellow citizens that nebulous concepts such as “hope” and “change” would enable them to find fulfillment in their life via the federal government. You left out that the finances of the federal government are built on various cons and scams that would not even pass the most rudimentary of financial reviews. You started a war on Libya. Admittedly, I’m for this, though not in the manner upon which you are doing it. You sacrificed Egypt to tomorrow’s enemy. You signed the most unpopular piece of legislation since Prohibition in the form of “Obamacare.” Without one Republican vote. You blew various moments of core principles, like siding with Nancy Pelosi as she attacked the CIA, and calling a cop a racist albeit in a veiled manner. Let’s not leave out the massive spending on some of the most insane things I can conceive of while not providing money for those things that the federal government has a vital role in doing, because if you did, you would lose more of your liberal support. Soon you are going to be advancing a “jobs plan,” do I need to mention what happens to businesses that you appear at?

As I drove through “Irene” the saying “Keep Calm and Carry On” came to my mind. It is high time that the citizens of this nation realize that there own safety and security in no small way rests on the personal choices that they decide to make, and no longer allow themselves to be conned and scammed by people like Al Gore telling them that the world is coming to an end if they do not plug their rectums with a mercury filled light bulb. Or that one thing or another is going to kill them. Something is going to kill all of us. I don’t much see the point in making society a basket case trying to stop it while not enjoying our lives and pursuing our American dreams, of course within some semblance of reason, but in the end, no matter which one of us buys the farm. The show must go on. Real Americans know this. There has to come a moment when the tones of liberal politicians singing the tune of victimization, fear, and race baiting fall on deaf ears. Considering what liberals tend to do to those people while promising to do something far different is criminal. How could you steal a mans dignity and then ask him to vote for you?

In the midst of this I have at times shouted into the wind in an effort to persuade other free citizens to stick together, and not permit you and those of your ilk, to divide us in your usual manner via race and economic class. You see Mr. Obama your way is the easy way. Your way requires little thought and only marginal effort. I, “We The People,” have a much tougher job. We must persuade our fellow citizens that being free is our most important goal, and that your philosophy is it’s greatest threat. That is why I keep calm and carry on in a relentless fashion as I steer my life through a nation that is being so poorly led, I know of no other way to preserve this nation from tyranny.
On November 6, 2012 we will make one great stride in attaining that goal.
