Should emoticons be added to the Obama jobs speech telecast?
The solutions President Obama offers for jobs creation when he gives his speech before a joint session of Congress will more than likely be more of the same that he has offered before.
Programs requiring massive amounts of new spending and a commensurate rise in our national debt all linked to new government infrastructure required for implementation.
Obama proposals will most likely be non-starters!
These programs will most likely be a non-starter for Republicans if for no other reason than the fact that the massive amount of spending already done by this President has resulted in zero new jobs and a still stagnant US economy.
An economy in real danger of moving into an even deeper recession.
In reality the Presidents proposals will be non-starters because of the massive amounts of spending and new borrowing they will require to be implemented.
Spending coupled with a probable proposal to increase the taxes on the "millionaires, billionaires and corporate jet owners" who, according to Democrat talking points, need to share the burden of responsibility to get the country back on track.
Friends of Obama excluded of course!
The President will in a veiled way say that if these programs are not put into place, and no jobs creation results in the time leading up to the 2012 presidential election, why then it's the fault of the Republican Party for being obstructionist and for playing political games with the lives of Americans.
Coming from the consummate political games player, these statements would be extremely ironic and disingenuous.
The President is going to be playing a high stakes political game with this speech, and the economy and the American public are going to be used as the pieces.
This is a campaign speech, nothing more and nothing less, although it is being positioned as providing hope and solutions for Americans unemployed, underemployed or who have simply given up.
President Obama, this time with feeling!
Although I should not be giving advice to the man who is single-handedly (with a little help from his friends) trying to bring down the US economy, here it is.
Get off of your teleprompter and speak from your heart about what you see and feel about the plight of so many Americans.
Act less like an emotionless automaton and more like a feeling, caring leader.
Understand that those people who still bother to watch and listen to your speeches are desperate for solutions and not for campaign slogans.
If it is not possible for you to accomplish these things, have your staff add emoticons to the bottom of the T.V. screen so the people know what points you are trying to convey!
