Its Deja Vu all over again. One year ago today President Obama sat down with Brian Williams just before he went on his end of summer vacation to Cape Cod. The big revelation in the interview was the President’s promise that as soon as he is back from his family vacation he was going to present a jobs plan to the country. (See Video Below). Gee the only thing missing was the hurricane.
“We anticipated that the recovery was slowing – the economy is still growing, but it’s not growing as fast as it needs to. I’ve got things right now before Congress that we should move immediately, and I said so before I went on vacation, and I’ll keep on saying it now that I’m back,” Obama told Williams when asked if he had a jobs plan.
“There are a whole host of measures we could take – no single element of which is a magic bullet – but cumulatively can start continuing to build momentum for the recovery,”
Now where did I hear that before. Oh wait..I know, today in the White House Rose Garden:
Next week, I will be laying out a series of steps that Congress can take immediately to put more money in the pockets of working families and middle-class families, to make it easier for small businesses to hire people, to put construction crews to work rebuilding our nation’s roads and railways and airports, and all the other measures that can help to grow this economy.
See President Obama doesn’t even have enough respect for the American people to change the scenario in which he spews his political nonsense. Last year his post vacation speech led to almost nothing in terms of concrete programs. If history is our guide, nothing new will be announced next week either.
