Mr. Obama speaking in front of the Tappan Zee Bridge two days ago.
Mr. Obama dedicated his weekly address to his plan to implement a pen and phone dictatorship over infrastructure repairs because congress won’t act. He is going to launch major transportation infrastructure projects in a repeat of his Stimulus packages of 2009.
Using the shiny object style of leadership, he is ignoring the Benghazi and IRS scandals, Russian imperialism and the flailing economy to talk about roads.
Mr. Obama keeps using the same old failed ideas to distract from the reality of his failed leadership.
He began his address with a lie: “At a time when our businesses have created 9.2 million new jobs in just over four years, and more companies are considering bringing jobs back from overseas, we have a choice to make. We can make it easier for businesses to invest in America – or we can make it harder.”
We actually have 4 million fewer jobs than we had when he came into office. He is the one sending jobs overseas. He talks about cutting red tape but he is the leading purveyor of red tape.
He wants another $302 billion plan to repair the country’s transportation system. He used the demand for the money as an opportunity to bash Republicans.
Obama already wasted much of the 900 billion on the Stimulus in 2009, money that was spent on frivolous green energy projects.
Why doesn’t Obama approve the Keystone XL pipeline? That’s a project that would add jobs and is an actual shovel-ready project.
House Republicans said the White House has not supported any legislation that would improve permitting of job-creating infrastructure projects, citing four recent House-passed bills to streamline energy projects that have stalled in the Democratic-led Senate.
He said in his address: “So while Congress decides what it’s going to do, I’ll keep doing what I can on my own.”
Mr. Obama, the Great Divider, is a brazen dictator.
