SHOVEL READY?

obama lying

Obama’s talked this morning about JOBS THROUGH REPAIRING INFRASTRUCTURE.

Isn’t that SHOVEL READY, that thing he highlighted in his first run for President?  Isn’t that the thing he didn’t do?

He’s now blaming the Republicans because, according to what he just said “Republicans just have this IDEOLOGY that small government is better.”

This morning’s speech was very obviously a stump speech for the Democrats…to the point that you started laughing at how obvious it was.

So, SHOVEL READY was his BIG DEAL , he did VERY little, and now it’s UP TO REPUBLICANS to take care of it…creating jobs, fixing roads, etc.

He added:  “Democrats run on what we’re FOR, not just what we’re AGAINST”…

He was just “Shovelin’ the Sh…”

He repulses me.

    It is so good to hear the folks on OUTNUMBERED pull that speech apart with FACTS…hurrah.

  2. Baysider says:

    Then he needs to CALL OUT clearly what Democrats are FOR: doing your thinking for you, spending a lot more of your money so you have less of it to clutter up your wallet, and keeping you dependent them and their bureaucratic whims that micromanage your life.

    GREAT graphic, btw.

    If only a tenth of the huge “Stimulus Package” Obama created when he first took office was used for the infrastructure he mentions, it would all be taken care of. Now, where exactly did that money go again? It wasn’t to back up the banking industry because Bush had already done that. So where exactly did it go again? Does anyone ever remember hearing where, for sure? My guess is he bought the media, and gave “loans” or “grants” to Muslim countries.

  4. Mal says:

    Oh! And had he used it for infrastructure, it would’ve created hundreds of thousands of jobs.

  5. Silverfiddle says:

    His propaganda and rhetoric are shovel ready, just like the manure I used to shovel down on the farm when I was a kid…

  6. Baysider says:

    ‘Shovel ready’ was always a vote buying scheme. Money controls. Our founding fathers were concerned that England would control the colonies through the church – cuz the government paid the pastors. Adams, Jefferson, Henry and Madison shifted to a disestablishmentarian position early on as they saw this danger lurking. So should we.

  7. Kid says:

    Great point/question MAL. on 9/30/2008 the national debt was 10 trillion – today 19 trillion and is expected to be 20 trillion by the time was get to tell that — Adios.

    (During the previous 8 Bush years the debt went up by 5 trillion)

    So, 9-10 trillion plus the collected tax revenue for 8 years. Yes, Where did that money go????!!! No where visible or that can be accounted for.

    A little heavy parody for y’all . . . wrote it coupla years ago — still kinda works:

    While my Aussie buddy and I strolled through the surprisingly pleasant morning air, some little dude in my head went into the archives and dragged out Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “Kublai Khan” and dusted it off. http://www.bartleby.com/101/550.html

    Half a century ago, anybody in a decent high school or liberal arts college would have had to read and explicate that poem. Basically it’s a lament by a brilliant guy who burnt out his brain on laudanum long before anybody realized how dangerous and addictive opiates stirred into grain alcohol can be. He realizes that his wellspring of creativity has dried up, and he drags the reader along on a fantasy trip through the warped and twisted corridors of his mind as he searches for a place where he might be able to get it to flow freely again.

    And being who and what I am, naturally I can’t leave it alone. Once it’s dragged out and put on display in the foyer of my subconscious, I just gotta take it apart and put it back together in my own fashion. Some people might ask “Why?” but I just look at it and say “Nah, that ain’t right. Lemme fix it.”

    In Syria did BHO
    An end to civil war demand:
    Where Blood, the ancient river flowed
    Through streets of Muslims’ dark abode
    And into nearby lands.

    So thrice spake he on world TV
    Of red lines for humanity
    And thought that once his word had spread
    We’d no more witness gas assault
    On those who lived in mortal dread
    Where jihad made belief a fault.

    But up in noisy consternation
    From the depths of their downfall
    Rose then the Red Bear’s revocation
    Of Red lines and bluffs to call.
    And like a flounder he was reeled in,
    Pulled from waters he had muddied,
    Strung upside down by his tail fin,
    A fledgling fool Putin had studied.
    The fount of mighty words receded
    As his blunder he conceded
    And to Congress then relinquished
    Power fact had much extinguished.
    With their ores refining swiftly,
    Persians o’er their kouskous chuckled
    While Israelis masks donned quickly,
    American prestige was buckled.
    Saliva gushing from the botox queen
    And the Senate’s senile left-wing dean
    Could not sustain the war-like chant
    When grass roots said, “Oh no you can’t.”
    Five years meandering in a smoky daze
    Through town and state the shallow river flowed,
    Until it reached that red line where it slowed
    And quickly disappeared in full disgrace.
    ‘Twas then iWon heard voices near and far
    Saying NOT let slip the dogs of war.

    The glory of the chair of power
    Resting firmly on the floor,
    While ruling from his iv’ry tower
    Suddenly down came the door!
    And even far left-wing fanatics
    Finally did their mathematics.

    A virgin in a black burqa
    In a vision once I saw:
    She was a dark-eyed maid
    And on her rababah she played,
    Singing of global jihad.

    Could she restore inside me
    Through pure Qur’anic song,
    My brothers all again beside me,
    That with chanting loud and long,
    I would rebuild that hope and trust
    They allowed to slip away,
    And start again to tax and spend,
    Ride unicorns, eat pita crust,
    And play golf every day.
    Nay, weave a rope around him thrice!
    For he is no good US friend
    And will no US laws obey.
    For he on pixie dust hath fed
    And drunk the smoke of Maui blend.

    Got ‘nuther’n on “Teddy Bears’ Picnic” if you’d like.

  9. geeez2014 says:

    THanks, Bocopro…..you’re very good at this stuff!
    Would that we could rebuild the hope and trust…that’s LOOONG GONE. Now even Republicans mistrust every single politician no matter what. not good. Mostly ours.

    Kid and Mal; WHERE IS THAT MONEY? Food stamps? War? (we had more boots on the ground under Bush, right?) Healthcare? WHAT??? WHERE IS IT??

    SF…exactly why I wrote “shovelin’ the S…..” at the bottom of my post…exactly right…he was SURE shovelin’, but it wasn’t jobs
    And NOW he blames Republicans 🙂 And not ONE media person there at the presser asked…

    Baysider…I just hope some of what you wrote is flung at Hillary in debates….

  10. geeez2014 says:

    And now there’s a shooting in Maryland and it’s ALL we’ll hear about on the news for days….WHY? HOW? ARE THEY CONNECTED? HOW DO WE FIGURE THAT OUT? HOW DO THE VICTIMS’ FAMILIES FEEL? HOW DO THE PERPS’ FAMILY FEEL? WHAT’S HIS NEIGHBOR HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HIM, EVEN IF HE NEVER MET HIM? HOW DID HE GET THE GUN? WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE TO PREVENT THIS? yadda yadda yadda

    The world of news stops still for some twisted murderer’s mind.

    (and please don’t answer the questions above…I know, I know…some are answered already and I don’t care!!)

  11. Kid says:

    Did you see where they estimate 50% of the voters plan to vote against the person they hate. What a state of affairs eh?

  12. woodsterman says:

    That horses ass has had 7 years to “Attempt” to fix this economy, but he hasn’t even made an attempt. His view of success is to put more people on welfare.

  13. Baysider says:

    Woodsterman – you’re right! His view of success is to spread dependency on big government. And buy votes for its machine. So he’s achieved his goal.

  14. Bob says:

    I don’t know why people think that repairing roads and bridges will create thousands of new, permanent jobs. At the most, the concrete and asphalt businesses will get a boost. Tens of thousands of construction workers will have temporary jobs, Hundreds of connected construction contractors will get rich. Thousands of state, local, and federal bureaucrats will get pay-offs.

    Very few permanent jobs will be created. Even though re-doing old infrastructure will help a little in commerce, you are not building infrastructure demanded by NEW businesses. In other words your area repairing roads and bridges that bring trade to old businesses. Nothing new, here.

    What we need are new roads and new bridges that can bring new people to new developing areas. How does this happen and who decides? Not the government!

    Markets and people decide through their decisions to buy things, and to open businesses in locations where they think they will prosper. We don’t need bridges to nowhere. We need infrastructure where it will do businesses and people some good. The old “build it and they will come” idea is not a good one at all.

    All this economic theory says is that government is very bad at making market decisions,and just spending money does not necessarily create jobs. Look at the almost $Trillion that Obama spend on his stimulus. The economy was not stimulated, and the number of jobs created were not worth the effort. The nation would have been better off building a few thousand F-22 fighter aircraft, or maybe giving each unemployed person $100,000. Do the arithmetic.

    Plus, what has the government done with all the fuel tax money the nation has been paying for the last fifty years? That money was supposedly earmarked to maintain the roads and bridges. But, NOOO!!! Since they have spent all the highway trust fund money feeding and educating illegal aliens, we are now supposed to be happy paying more taxes to do something that was enshrined in law to be done otherwise.

    Thanks for the place to vent.

    @Bob…you nailed it.

    ‘Nuther little poem (rework of “The Village Blacksmith”:

    The National Black Mistake

    Under a spreading scandal cloud
    The Kenyan phony sits;
    His lies are big and long and loud;
    No budget he submits.
    He’ll cast disgrace upon us all
    Until he calls it quits.

    His hair is kinky, short, and gray,
    His face a dirty tan;
    His smile is false and pretentious;
    He lies whene’er he can,
    And thinks a speech can fix it all,
    For he has no real plan.

    Week in, week out, from prepared lines
    We hear his minions crow;
    We hear how “green” is good for us
    And warming we must slow,
    While all the things he recommends
    Just cause our debt to grow.

    His wife and daughters flit around
    Like regal VIPs,
    And gala parties are designed
    For black celebrities,
    While White House tours are suspended
    For reg’lar families.

    He goes some Sundays to a church
    To project his façade
    That he is Christian, not Muslim,
    Which some consider odd
    In light of how he seems to think
    That he is really God.

    The measure of a man is known
    By whom he calls his friends,
    And tricks he justifies to bring
    About his desired ends.
    But Eric, Janet, Rice, and Hill
    Are those he most defends?

    So spinning, lying, denying
    Through second term he’ll go;
    Each day with some new scandal
    His incompetence will show,
    Until he finally becomes
    Ex-Precedente BO.

    Thanks, thanks to you, our left-wing friends
    For what you have taught us!
    That half-black rookie senators
    Are lousy as PotUS.
    And we were correct when we said:
    “He’ll be calamitous.”

  17. Sparky says:

    I was told, or read somewhere, that the “shovel ready” money was used as payment (bribes) to the Unions for their votes.

  18. Imp says:

    Sad day..Bill Whittle to leave PJ & Afterburner.

  19. geeez2014 says:

    Imp; WHY? Is he going on his own? Just when we need him….

    Sparky…probably so….GRRRRR

  20. bunkerville says:

    His arrogance is amazing. He thinks the GOP has problems? Wait until Hillary falls on her you know what. She is having a Criminal FBI investigation about her going on. Does anyone else get this?

  21. geeez2014 says:

    Bunkerville…I’m hearing on the news, and reading, that she’s going to get OFF…that it looks, more and more, that there won’t be an indictment/ man, I was SO depressed yesterday about it… I hope I’m WRONG, but….

    He really IS SO ARROGANT…SO smarmy, so racist and so unable to grasp that we’re entitled to OUR opinions….I guess this is the only time he doesn’t believe in ENTITLEMENT.
    It’s like I always say the Leftwingers only support CHOICE when it’s got to do with killing babies.

  22. geeez2014 says:

    Imp; I’m Googling all over; did Whittle say he’s retiring, or??

  23. Mal says:

    Right, Sparky. I inadvertently left out the Unions. I’m pretty certain some of the funds went there, too.

  24. Baysider says:

    Bill Whittle IS going on his own – and looking for support! https://www.billwhittle.com/

  25. Baysider says:

    ps – that’s because PJTV is closing.

  26. Eject, Eject, Eject!

  27. Bob says:

    Ed: Can’t do it. I am always the last one to leave the party.

  28. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider, thanks for the link.
    Do you know who he is backing?
    Imp, do you know?

  29. Lisa says:


    And here he is disrespecting us once again

  30. Baysider says:

    He has said he will vote for Trump over a traitor (the Hildebeast) or a communist (Sanders). It’s hard to imagine T is his FIRST choice … but he was only addressing the “I’ll-sit-out-the-election” anti-Trumpers with that statement.

  31. geeez2014 says:

    hard for me to know what he was joking about only hearing those few words…but it doesn’t look GOOD…!

    Baysider…You mean he was mimicking the anti-Trumpers? Because that MIGHT be the most sensible thing he’s ever said :-)!!

  32. Bob: Eject Eject Eject was Bill’s first blog, years ago.
    I hope his new blog hosts some of his classic posts which are hard to find.

  33. Kid says:

    Bob, Jobs – absolutely agree. If I were to complain about the lack of barry doing nothing, it would be becuase of the example of the Brent Spence bridge across the Ohio River from Ohio into Kentucky. This is one of the infrastructure items that would have been done by now. It’s on I-75, a major interstate used to transport all manner of freight between Southern USA and Canada. It’s a federal concern and should be a federal project but Ohio and Kentucky are left to try to figure out how to pay for it. Good luck. Glad I don’t have to use it for anything.

  34. Kid says:

    Ed, Here ya go. I’m doing full link so its easy to see where you go to get archived web content. It’s commonly called the wayback machine. Yea, those posts are superb.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20120217212402/http://pjmedia.com/ejectejecteject/

  35. Kid, thanks.
    And I love that bridge.

  36. Kid says:

    Ed, If you use that bridge a lot, good luck to you. In a couple years it won’t matter for me, we’ll be back somewhere in the Southwest.

  37. Just when I’m going to Florida on 75.
