GOP weekly address nukes the stimulus: “Where are the jobs?”

posted at 4:42 pm on June 27, 2009 by Allahpundit

Submitted for your approval, a preview of the line of attack Republicans far and wide will be using next year in the midterms distilled to three crystalline minutes. It’s all here: The gigantic stimulus waste, the travesty of cap-and-trade, and (soon) the unholy bloat of ObamaCare. Toss in Heritage’s now-famous graph of Obama’s deficits and Innocent Bystanders’ chart of how dismally the stimulus has failed to stem unemployment and you’re 90 percent of the way towards a generic GOP congressional campaign commercial for spring 2010.

Sure would be nice if we had a spokesman on the Republican side with Obama’s confidence and charisma, but this’ll do. Boehner’s having a good week, huh?

Hey America, remember when The One promised to make energy prices “skyrocket”? Yeah, good times, good times…

Any Republican who waits until next year to make these points is a coward who is already committed to losing and who does not deserve our support. The time to make these points is NOW in order to put a stop to the foibles of the Obamamaniacs before they destroy us all.

We need real Conservatives who have the courage of their convictions and both the will and the ability to speak out in a timely manner for the good of the country …without feeling the need to stop and take a poll or consult with a political adviser in order to gain maximum advantage for themselves rather than for the good of the country.

Since my favorite golfer isn’t playing this weekend I think I just found my new crush

proudteadrinker on June 28, 2009 at 1:33 AM

I am appalled, all due respect. Is there not anyone out there to speak to America and let them know wtf is going on?

Do they all talk double speak?

We may be more well informed, so it may be our job to demand representation that can stop this madness.

Cap and Trade? Phone lines should be burning for the next 5 weeks.

Health Care – another unread bill that the Congress pushes through.

When does it end People?

It’s insulting for me as an American with Children that will NOT have the same opportunities as I to witness this without trying.

I hope you feel the same way.

Where is Michael Steele?

I checked on the RNC’s web presence today, and it seems that their top priority is building a new web site!

Apparently the RNC is totally incapable of distinguishing between important and unimportant activities. If the RNC is too busy playing with keyboards to stand up and fight to protect the country, they are completely worthless.

If Michael Steele can’t turn this around within the next few months, that will be sufficient proof that he is the wrong man for the job.

If the RNC cannot clearly identify their core values and doggedly pursue them with the resources they already have, a new web site will do no good. The RNC must be able to tell everyone what they are doing, how each activity advances the core values, how YOU can support each activity, and why you should. Until the RNC gets its act together and has something meaningful to communicate, any attempt at communication will simply serve to portray the RNC as a shallow organization which doesn’t know what it wants. Until these deficiencies are resolved, there is no need for any RNC web site, and money spent on this will be wasted.

I sent the Chairman of the RNC a “what the hell are you doing and why do you deserve support” email through their content-free, worthless web site. I’m anxiously awaiting a reply.

We are coming like the Calvary!

Don’t be late!!! I’m not looking for a messiah personally–I am looking for a grassroots tidal wave, coming from many, unexpected directions. As Obamanomics continues to put the hurt on the middle class and working poor, and as his inflationary policies continues to squeeze these constituencies into an ever tighter corner, I think we are going to see a popular explosion. The media thinks they’ve been doing Obama a favor by distorting the reality of what he’s doing. The people being hurt by his policies are not fooled, however, but their collective experience is being denied, airbrushed out by the media. They are being rendered invisible, or to put it another way, they are being buried alive. The time will come when they will begin to connect, and when they are given an opportunity to be heard, when they find their voice–well it’s like you said, get out of the way.

To reiterate my prediction, Obama will be lucky to be as popular as Mussolini was at the end of his term–that’s how bad it is going to get. And the sense of betrayal will be profound in some of these constituencies–all those black working mothers who bought the lie, hook, line and sinker? Mmm, mmm, chile–Obama will be on their bad side, too–not a good place to be. And the media will have abetted that betrayal by magnifying that lie, by not being a corrective lense. The tea parties are only the beginning splashes of tidal waves to come. Rock on, freeus!

Most confident, competent woman in a position of authority are wives and mothers too. So it’s hard to do it all, so few reach that peak.

Men are better, married with families. So are women. Dads with girls and women with boys learn a lot.

JiangxiDad on June 27, 2009 at 7:26 PM

That’s bull.

Most of the female bosses I’ve had were single.

Jaynie59 on June 27, 2009 at 7:34 PM

Yes, that’s the common experience. Many of us know these woman. But I think you missed my point.

JiangxiDad on June 28, 2009 at 8:39 AM

The more I see and listen to this man, the more I am convinced he is the one that should lead our party or whats left of it. I hope the RNS is recruiting republicans to run for the districts where the 8 wussies who voted for cap and trade reside.

I don’t approve since it’s coming from a Republican member of the Trillion $ club.

If this message works, which it won’t coming from the GOP, we’d be screwed having a liar like Boehner back in power.

rcl on June 28, 2009 at 10:29 AM

The background for this speech is so tacky,wake up GOP you are letting us down more and more with each passing day.Stand up get off your a-s and show passion for what you are saying.

easyone on June 28, 2009 at 11:37 AM

John Boehner once stared at a bikini-clad coed on the beach. He must be destroyed!

SKYFOX on June 28, 2009 at 11:59 AM

With everything Uhboma and his administration has handed the GOP, this is the best he can do? Are you freakin kidding me. It’s time to get some serious leadership. This is Jimmah with a deep voice.

ALLAHPUNDIT/Rod Serling and everyone else:

If you are intending to use the deficit graph as exhibit A to turn your liberal friends around, you should note that it originated with the Washington Post (based on White House and CBO data), NOT the right-leaning Heritage Foundation. Heritage merely reproduced it on its website.

Why is everyone so down on Boehner? Have you listened to his speech on the floor of the house? How many of you could digest a 300 page monstrosity (cap ‘n trade amendment) dumped on you at 3:00 in the morning, and turn around the next day and summarize its most egregious points?

I thought he did a pretty good job rounding everyone up to vote against porkulus. The idiot 8 (okay, maybe Reichert needed to vote for CNT to get the fruits and nuts in Seattle to re-elect him) who sided with the democrats on this vote are using bad judgment in assuming their votes won’t count because it won’t pass the Senate. Boehner perhaps gave them a pass so he can put the screws to them when health care comes up for a vote.

America… 52% moron and growing.

bloviator on June 28, 2009 at 5:55 PM

He knows a “Pile of sh-t” when he sees one.

darwin-t on June 28, 2009 at 7:38 PM

Maybe somebody from the state run media will ask that moron, Joe Biden, the question. Afterall, he’s going to make sure that all this stimulus goes to what it was intended for or he will “put a stop to it.” Boehner needs to call Biden out and b**tch slap him over this
