President Obama will be most of the rest of the year campaigning not only to be re-elected, but to push is “jobs” bill that is another attempt to rush a bill through a-lá-Obamacare, presenting a false pretense that it’s “paid for” when the reality is that it isn’t. A bill that is fair to all of us that pay taxes and garnishes earnings and a reasonable effort to recruit more and more people cannot amount to the ridiculous amount of approximately $200,000 up to $312,500 per job created OR SAVED. Yes, no typos-per job.
Take a look:
The President’s deal is said to increase GDP by $300 billion or 2 percent and add or 1.9 million jobs. The plan is expected to cost tax payers $475 billion, well over the $300 billion that analysts were originally forecasting. ZeroHedge notes that $475 billion financed over a ten year basis at 2.5 percent will add roughly an additional $120 billion in interest.
If you don’t factor in the interest, it will cost the tax payers $250,000 per job and $312,500 after factoring in the interest tax.
Whoever is doing that math, is an evil malign tumor that has a laundromat with a Slushie machine inside.
This bad joke has got to stop now. What blows my mind is why nobody is stopping this madness. Who is waiting for what? If most of the United States are “game on” for destroying this country on purpose thinking that this can be in a jiffy, they’re absolutely wrong.
Unbelievable. At 75, he better pick a young VP candidate. Jesse Ventura, perhaps?
Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, whose outspoken libertarian views and folksy style made him a cult hero during two previous presidential campaigns, will announce on Tuesday that he’s going to try a third time.
Sources close to Paul, who is in his 12th term in the House, said he will unveil an exploratory presidential committee, a key step in gearing up for a White House race. He will also unveil the campaign’s leadership team in Iowa, where the first votes of the presidential election will be cast in caucuses next year.
Paul, 75, ran as the Libertarian Party candidate in 1988, finishing with less than one half a percent of the vote. After more than a decade as a Republican congressman, Paul gave it another shot in the 2008 presidential election, gaining attention for being the only Republican candidate calling for the end to the war in Iraq and for his “money bomb” fundraising strategy, which brought in millions of dollars from online donors in single-day pushes.
How will this affect the overall race, if he really goes for it? He’s got the cash, the help and connections to start this off. This will divide the vote, especially with the GOP if they dare put a RINO in-which is likely, looking at the environment right now. The establishment do not like to be called on their lack of efficiency, the lame candidates they could get behind, and the lackluster fighting spirit that they possess. Trump, Palin, West and Cain have put them to shame.
Look at it this way: Please “We The People,” or please the GOP establishment? Wise up, GOP! Listen to Republicans, Conservatives and those Tea Party folks that streak Independent-those Independents could give some votes to Paul, if he courts them properly.
Hmm…Paul/Ventura 2012. How’s that sound like?

GOP Establishment-Are you willing to give some, and take some? Or let the US Constitution fly by, ignoring what this president has done to this country that WE THE PEOPLE love so much?
GOP contenders: BE UNAFRAID. THE GAME IS ON!
Are the GOP possible candidates too afraid of the media?
Are the GOP possible candidates too afraid of confrontation?
Are the GOP possible candidates unable to engage?
Are the GOP possible candidates proven leaders with expertise with the military-and respected BY the military?
Are the GOP possible candidates salivating to take on Barack Obama, look him in the eye and tell him ENOUGH IS ENOUGH?
NO MORE! IT STARTS NOW AND PLAY HARD CORE CONSTITUTIONAL PROTECTION FOR AMERICANS!
Liberal heads will explode in 3, 2, 1…
This time Hollywood has taken notice of Governor Palin, and so far I don’t know how close the script will be based on the book, “Game Change” which covered the 2008 elections. “Game Change” was not 100% accurate with information about the campaign, as claimed by Palin.
So far, here are the details:
Oscar-nominated actress Julianne Moore will portray the former Alaska governor in the project, which will chronicle Palin’s burst into the national scene as a surprise vice presidential candidate in 2008. Directing Game Change is Jay Roach, director of the Meet the Parents movies as well as the HBO film Recount, which examined the aftermath of the 2000 presidential election with a focus on the Florida recount.
Game Change is based on Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book about the 2008 presidential elections and follows John McCain’s campaign from his selection of Palin as his running mate to their ultimate defeat in the general election.
Danny Strong, who previously wrote the Roach-directed Recount, penned the script for Game Change. Roach is executive producing, with Strong co-executive producing.
As soon as more information starts trickling in, I will post more details. Stay tuned.
