It’s been 100 days since the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre and President Obama still hasn’t banned guns yet, but he assures us he hasn’t “forgotten about those kids.” We’d begun to suspect he had forgotten, though, about that important three-letter word that used to be thrown around during his first term: J-O-B-S. It has been nearly two years since Obama joked that “shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected.”

Tomorrow, though, Obama promises to campaign like it’s 2008 and recalibrate his laser-like focus on the economy during a visit to Miami, Fla.

We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to learn if “smart, targeted investments” is just another euphemism for “stimulus.”

So, has the country’s dad plugged that hole in the economy yet? What’s the plan?

Patience, please. You can’t change Washington from the inside, after all.

    If I can’t borrow and spend my way to wealth, my family can’t, my city can’t, my county can’t, and my state can’t……….. please tell me with some semblance of sanity how in this world, our the next, our nation can. The absurdity runs deep and wide in D. C.

      Its the constant fellatio he gets from the media that emboldens him…..

        They’re not journalists, they’re fluffers.

        • SpinMeNot

          ok, both of you … that’s enough of that … I’m going to cough up a lung.

          • V the K

            You know the bathtub scene from ‘Coming to America?’ Every morning, Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer, Savannah Guthrie, and Joe Scarborough catfight viciously for the privilege.


          • SpinMeNot

            Can somebody give me a link for putting a lung back in its proper place …

      They can print a lot of money to pass amongst themselves, imagining this makes them rich. That’s the difference.

      • beebop1952

        One more devaluation and the “rich” people on the right can pool our resources and BUY America back. That may be the only way to save it.

    • Scott Anderson

      That’s easy. We make leaves legal tender instead of the dollar. Then money will grow on trees.

    • J. Cox

      Pffft..your doing two things wrong

      1.Spend even more
      2.Spend other people’s money

      Claim that you created wealth from nothing,waalah,you just became a Democrat econ major.

      /sarc/ if you couldn’t tell

    The horse and pony show continues as the traveling snake oil salesman gets back to doing what he does best… Showing up for photo ops, telling lies the public cheers about, and riding off into the sunset, never to be seen again…

      Don’t worry, He’ll get tired after 2 weeks and get a vacation; and then to the next shiny bauble.

      This is all the Community Agitator can.

    • teapartydoc

      I like that last part. Really wish he’d do it.

    • conservativechick

      Get those shovels ready ……again

  • Marty Luther

    The old promises are the best ones, aren’t they? Well, at least Obama recycles.

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Ya know, I despise everything about Jimmy Carter’s Presidency, and pretty much everything he’s ever done or said since…

    Yet…there’s a part of me that’s happy that he’s alive to see this Obama sh!t…and know history is gonna let him off easy.

    • SpinMeNot

      When the bubble we are riding on bursts, Mr. Carter is going to look like an economic genius. Those 18% interest rates on mortgages will seem like a bargain.

  • Miss Clairee

    No more tricks up the sleeve. Please, please no more tricks up the sleeve! Aren’t things bad enough from your previous tricks, Mr. Obama?

    • SpinMeNot

      Hey Joe! Watch me pull of a budget out of my ass!

      Ah, Barry, that trick never works!

      • beebop1952

        He will have personally spent more time on his NC2A brackets than he did “his” budget. And his bracket sucks.
        hey? where are all of the 0bama worshippers …. kinda silent …. have their hours been cut to under 28? hahahahahha

  • arttie

    O is bouncing around from important topic to important topic like a fart bounces around a skillet. Are he and his staff all unmedicated ADHD?

  • dennylee60

    He will announce that he will stimulate the economy by taking all his vacations in the US for the next 6 months.

  • KansasGirl


    • SpinMeNot

      Now now, you have to encourage him …

      “Barry, that was very entertaining, but this is economics not creative writing.”

  • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

    How can jobs be created, infrastructures repaired, when Obama is giving our money to terrorists? People you are paying HIGHER taxes to support TERRORISM, no matter what lies you are told.

  • DavidKramer

    What is the point? or like Hillary likes to say, what difference does it make. Hell, why not give the Japanese a call and get one of those weird human like robots to go around and give speeches? At least then the robot would not need Totus along.

  • DavidKramer

    For those that do not understand Obamaspeak, let me translate.

    Building infrastructure……… his cronies cash. Nothing more, nothing less. It is Obama’s turn to loot the treasury, and oh boy this guy knows looting!

    George Washington, “The last act of every government is the looting of the treasury.”

        It is almost like I knew what I was talking about…………

        edit to add, notice how the US is declining while the Communist countries we began to trade with are expanding………….almost like it was planned all along. International redistribution has always been their plan. Americans were getting too uppity.

  • almarquardt

    I just realized “Shovel Ready” has an entirely different meaning every time Obama speaks.

    • KansasGirl

      Absolutely Andra, and we taxpayers have to stand in it…and pay for it too boot.

      • nc

        Then clean it off our boots.

        • KansasGirl

          I know what I’d to do with my boot…and I certainly wouldn’t clean it off before I stuck it up (ahem) a certain government employee.

  • nc

    Whenever he says “infrastructure” I hear “placate the masses.”

    • beebop1952

      Or “union payoff.”

      • nc

        You are so right, it’s The Big Pig.

    He wouldn’t know a ‘smart’ investment for our money if it was stapled to Beyonce’s butt…..

  • RightThinking1

    I expect an emotional appeal…, something like, oh, “Our shorelines are crumbling!”

    Come to think of it, I’ll bet eco-nazis everywhere are blaming global something-or-other for the cliff collapse in Washington state.

  • ClinkinKY

    “40% of savings accounts over $250,000.00…no wait, $100,000.00… will be ‘redistributed’ to infrastructure to provide jobs for the unemployed”—-B.O.

  • Guest

    After depleting all his diversionary issues, Obama is compelled to address the economy.
    It will not be long, however, before creative Herr Axelthug creates another sideshow,
    with which to draw the attention of the American people away from Obama’s failure.

    • KhadijahMuhammad

      Another vacation is more likely.

  • David

    I think OBlamer said this same thing about five years ago. Per usual, his words are just words.

  • DeafRanger

    Oh no! Not shovel ready jobs again!
