I really hate to be the one to break it to Democrat voters. As conservatives, we’ve long suspected that Obama and his cohorts in the Democrat party don’t really have much respect for people who vote Democrat. The last week or so has confirmed it. There’s no way Obama & Co. could pull the stunts they’re pulling and expect people who have only a couple of brain cells to rub together to support it – and even defend it as if the crap made any sense.
A few months ago, Obama restated that his administration’s number one priority is to create jobs. To prove it, he went on a bus tour where he told anyone who would listen that he had this super-duper plan to create jobs and congress needed to “pass this bill now.” The Democrats in the Senate apparently missed the memo and promptly 1) delayed a vote on the bill for over a month and then 2) failed to get it passed. Obama, to this day, still acts like this bill isn’t dead, by the way. He just keeps telling Democrat voters that Republicans aren’t willing to compromise and pass his plan.
It is this – the “compromise” canard – that really shows just how stupid Democrat politicians think Democrat voters are. You see, since Obama’s “jobs bill” died in the Senate, the new shiny thing they’ve been dangling around as the solution to everything is the extension of the payroll tax cuts which were part of the stimulus back in 2009. Don’t forget: Jobs are priority number one. These payroll tax cuts must be extended or the economy will take a hit. Democrats are saying this while simultaneously saying those tax cuts should be “paid for” by increasing taxes on rich people. Yeah. It makes no sense, but stick with me on this.
Anyway, the tax cuts need to be renewed and Democrats are saying that if you couple the cuts with an extension of unemployment benefits, it will create jobs. Let’s just roll with it. At this point, it is futile to try to explain to Leftists that unemployment benefits don’t create jobs. It’s time to just pat them on the head and just say “Okay, Spanky.” The point is that Democrats are saying they want to create jobs and are even pulling job-creating measures – like unemployment benefits – out of thin air. Still with me?
So the Republicans say, “Okay. You want to create jobs? We’re in. We’re going to give you the payroll tax cut extension. We’re even going to give you the unemployment benefit extension. But, since you say you want to create jobs, we’re going to take out job-killing tax hikes on the rich and insert a guaranteed job-creating project called the Keystone XL pipeline. Deal?”
Now, you read that and you think, “Hey. That sounds like a reasonable compromise. Obama and Democrats get what they said they wanted to create jobs, and Republicans modified it with something guaranteed to create jobs and took out a tax hike. That’s doable, right?” Nope! Obama, claiming Republicans were “playing politics,” issued an official notice that they’d veto a job-creating bill that had the Keystone XL pipeline provisions in it.
You don’t have to be a MENSA member to realize that Obama & Co. are playing politics by claiming Republicans are playing politics. It’s obvious they are. The only way Obama would pull something so blatantly partisan, so blatantly deceitful, is if he is confident the people he expects to vote for him are complete idiots.
Then, to wash down the crap sandwich that he expects Democrat voters to swallow, he claims that Republicans are using gridlock to keep the economy down so he loses in November. Really. He said this. Republicans passed a bill that gives him everything he said would create jobs, plus the pipeline which will create jobs, and he said he would veto it. Who is preventing things from getting done? Obama. That’s who. Meanwhile, the lemmings continue to parrot the lie that Republicans are holding up measures to improve the economy.
If I were a Democrat voter, I’d be insulted. Then again, I’d be too stupid to know I’m being scammed.
