Obama gave a speech? Hmm, I must have slept through it. What? It was a jobs speech? I thought he focused like a laser on it way back when. Urgent? Why? Because he’s about to lose his job and join the ranks of the unemployed? I get it, he feels “our pain”, right? Not exactly yet, but he will come January 2013. See, he only cares about your job now that he’s about to lose his.
Let’s face it, we’ll have to sludge through the remainder of his term and hopefully the savior called Obama won’t decide what’s good for us. Oh sure I saw bits and pieces of the speech and I have to admit, I thought, “who the hell does he think he is?”. First of all this petulant man child thought he could walk into congress and tell them when they will have a joint session? Secondly, he actually believed he would be more important than football? And third, where does he get of ordering congress to “pass this bill’? I don’t know how things are ran in the other 7 states, but in the fifty states that I know of, our federal government doesn’t work that way.
Herman Cain had it right about Obama’s job speech “We waited 30 months for this?”. I wish I had a job that paid $400,000 a year with perks, 4 years of vacation, only occasionally having to stick my head up and subtly say “congress is full of stupid idiots” and tell them your “plan”: spend more money, cut spending, tax more, tax less, balance the budget, and go deeper into debt, which will lead to a surplus. Congress really has no choice but to act without Obama and his lap-female-dog, Nancy Pelosi. What an absolute joke Obama has become.
But I won’t waste more of your time by making you relive bad memories if you actually watched his speech, after all, there may just be a perfect storm brewing for Governor Bobby Jindal in Louisiana. Seems the Democrats have hatched a plan, or may have simply stumbled onto, a plan to divide Bobby Jindal’s support. Judging by the way the Democrat Party of Louisiana runs things, I’d say it was a complete accident for them to find Ivo “Trey” Roberts. Who dat? Who dat indeed, and after watching an Obama inspired Saints performance Thursday night, a “Who dat?” is desperately needed.
Ivo “Trey” Roberts– a Democrat and an outspoken tea party member has decided to run for governor. Why? Well one can only surmise that he believes he’s better suited to be Governor, or maybe it’s a publicity stunt, who knows. Maybe he believes Jindal hasn’t been good enough and needs to be replaced. Perhaps he should heed the words of Voltaire “don’t let the perfect become the enemy of the good.”
I’m sure Representative Bill Owens didn’t mind having two “conservatives” in the race and watching Dierdre Scozzafava 5.7% of the vote away from Doug Hoffman. Bill Owens took 48.3% of the vote, but that was enough to give the Democrats an additional seat.
Now lesson to be learned? Well if you’re a conservative, you know, the people who love to wear shirts that say “United we stand, divided we fall”, then no. If you’re a Democrat, stick with a winning strategy. Do what won you NY23.
It’s widely assumed that Bobby Jindal is a shoe-in for this election, in fact so much so, Bobby Jindal’s supporters don’t even need to get out of bed, they can simply vote in their sleep. In fact, I’ll bet you that many Republicans with all their bravado will simply not even to show up to vote because Jindal’s going to win anyway. If the Democrats can hit Jindal hard on his own side, many more might not vote for him and vote for Trey Roberts instead. Better yet, if enough people get the impression that Jindal isn’t doing a good job as Governor, maybe his supporters will get just discouraged enough to “not vote for him, besides he’s going to win anyway.”
And if you’re a Democrat, that’s prime picking. Sell the conservatism, get your vote out, and hope the other side stays home.
With a “tea party candidate” in the race, and with that candidate running as a “Democrat”, I’d find a way to get that guy money if I were a true liberal Democrat. Give him all the publicity he desires, give him the praise that he wants, and do whatever you can to make sure he gets his “anti-Jindal message” out. Do everything, except vote for him.
It’ll be interesting to see where he gets his funding from, and just as interesting who he accepts it from. Maybe it’s John Georges with his fingerprints on this, but nonetheless, as a pro tea party and long time conservative, I have to wonder, what on earth is Trey Roberts thinking?
Not that I think the Democrats could pull this magic rabbit out of their hat, but if Tara Hollis becomes governor, Trey Roberts might just become a name in Louisiana as synonymous as Ross Perot is nationally.
