OBAMA ADMITS FAILURE TO CONGRESS – “The Economy Has Stalled” (Video)

President Obama admitted tonight in his speech to the Joint Session of Congress that his policies have failed…
The economy has stalled.

Yes that’s AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka in the background in the video.

From the president’s spending speech:

The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: 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. It will provide a tax break for companies who hire new workers, and it will cut payroll taxes in half for every working American and every small business. It will provide a jolt to an economy that has stalled, and give companies confidence that if they invest and hire, there will be customers for their products and services. You should pass this jobs plan right away.

    Dear president Obunghole,

    I am holding up a finger. Can you guess which one?

  • MrGoodWench

    I’m looking to find the transcript because I think I heard him talk about amnesty in vague terms

  • SM-AZ

    Thought he called the joint session in order to resign. Was disappointed to hear different.

    He has got to be defeated . The election of 2012 is the most important election in the history of our counry.

    No.No passage. Absolutely not until you or your tong prepare a budget and write the entire budget as 09 extend to 10, i.e. based on it. No doofus budget presentation. We want to know where all the money went line by line. Every dime of Solyndra and every dime of tarp. You can do it in two weeks if you get going.Meanwhile back in cong, the hearings can start on jobs but real solution, tax cuts for 6 yrs, eliminate Inher taxes, corp taxes down. Meaningful curbs on epa and other regs for years. Real cuts instead of vigorish payments. Move-it, trickster!

    he is is a serial spendaholic. earth to obama, we are broke. remember all those budget talks about cutting spending. now this is what we get another half a trillion dollar spending spree.

  • Hobbitually conservative

    Maybe he admitted that his policies have failed but he keeps moving forward with them. The title “WORST PRESIDENT EVAH” must really appeal to him. Jimmah’s happy to pass off that crown.

    If Obama had used the scalpel to cut the budget page-by-page as he promised in the debates with McCain in 2008 INSTEAD of using a bulldozer to add over $4 trillion more in deficits, our economy wouldn’t be in the mess it is today and we wouldn’t have a real unemployment rate of 16% – 18%.

    This arrogant dope did no such thing. As far as he’s concerned, it’s the GOP failure to increase taxes that has stalled the economy.

    He’s recycling the same failed ideas because he’s too stupid to understand anything else. He spoke of “bipartisan” proposals, yet he never talked to anyone on the other side.

    Talk about the bloom coming off the rose. To think of the superlatives that were uttered by gushy liberals throughout the 2008 campaign. The soaring rhetoric, the swooning parasites in the audience, the tingling down the legs of certain shills. Compare that with the tired, empty, desperate, testy speeches of the past week.

    Obama is strictly subprime. Some of us saw it back then, and our big concern is that so many white voters in this country couldn’t see it as well.

    A cool Trillion dollars wasn’t enough of a jolt to the economy? No point in throwing good money after bad or beating a horse that is already dead. I would suggest to every member of Congress that should they decide to go along with any further economic “jolt” they will find themselves without jobs.

    Want to fix the economy? Impeach Obama!

    Waste of air time as usual. 2012 can’t come fast enough, but watch out for a false flag event that could change all the rules. Who authorized the security info to be brought to the public just a couple hours before the ‘great speech’? Inquiring minds want to know.
