Perry: Americans Need Work, Not Symbolism; We Need New Jobs, Not New Agencies
Rick Perry ^ | August 16th, 2011 | Rick Perry & Staff

Posted on 08/16/2011 5:56:26 PM PDT by shield

CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA – Texas Gov. Rick Perry today visited Cedar Rapids, Iowa where he criticized President Obama’s proposal to create a new jobs agency as a solution to economic recovery. He also reiterated his call for the Administration to issue a six-month freeze on new regulations to help free employers to create more jobs for Americans.

“What is this president’s plan to fix the economy? Apparently to create a new jobs agency,” Gov. Perry said. “Mr. President, we have tried two and a half years of government creating jobs, it’s time to let the private sector get to work. Americans need work, not symbolism. We need new jobs, not new agencies. If you want to create jobs, don’t create a new agency, and stop all the unnecessary regulations of the agencies you already control.”

Perry is Obama’s worst nightmare, a candidate that’s almost impossible for him to counter and one that will fight back.

The MSM's failure to tell the truth about Obama created a huge vacuum. And now Perry is demonstrating that he has the guts to step into the void.

And the world takes notice!

And if you wonder about the power of the vacuum...remember when that loudmouth Donald Trump stepped into the vacuum. All eyes were upon him until Obama threatened him (how...we might never know. But he was threatened I am told!).

Well, the vacuum was never filled (no one of note still screams "the emperor has no clothes"...or BC)...and since nature hates a vacuum, Perry can now step into it.

And all eyes are now upon him.

And make no mistake...his accusation that Bernanke was traitorous was directed at Obama.

And Obama took note!

That's easy to figure. Obama owns Immeldt who owns GE who owns/owned NBC. Obama probably threatened to have "The Apprentice" cancelled.

Perry is saying what we conservatives know and believe. Government and government agencies do not create jobs in the private sector, government must get out of the way and the magic of capitalism will grow jobs and grow our economy.

Obama’s solution is another expensive and useless bureaucracy. He is so out of touch with reality we would be better off if he just stayed on that bus and did sightseeing for the next year.

The first step in the NEED for jobs is to make it a helluva lot harder to get ‘free money’.

Like the “Wizard of Id” cartoon... if you are giving me free food, free housing, free car, free tv, ETC ETC why on earth would I need a job....
that is the mindset we are facing and are spinning our wheels over.

Really....you obviously don't know the Jack Wheeler I'm talking about....he was with Reagan as Governor and as President. He helped to implement the Reagan Doctrine...'We Win They Lose.' The Wheeler that was killed was John Wheeler called Jack sometimes.

Jack Wheeler's Website. Dr. Jack Wheeler is one of the most respected conservatives in America.

Hear!, Hear!

I AGREE WITH THAT

The game played by the Marxists is war where the end justifies the means. No matter how it's dressed up, it's an assault on America's freedom.

We have a government that grows at 8 percent a year, with unelected czars and departments working to do Zer0's bidding -- writing regulation after regulation.

It's all a crock... of Barack

  Barack's working hard for the nation
  And he's needs another vacation
  Some golf would be nice
  And the pie he'll have twice
  As we endure
  This reeking Obamanation

Countdown until Obama leaves Office: 521 days as of August 17, 2011.

Just guessing, but I think it would take something greater (by an order of magnitude) than just canceling his TV show. With its popularity (not that I like it), Trump could have simply taken it to another network or cable channel.

I'm thinking it might have been a death threat against one of his children. Whatever it was, his bluster completely evaporated and he clammed up. Not a peep since.

what about Perry?

Well, since Obama is a street thug and threats are the Chicago way, I'm almost certain Obama will have some member of his cabal deliver a threat.

But I don't think it'll work with Perry. He's a sitting governor after all...and I think it'll just harden Perry's resolve.

8/16/2011 - NRO — The Corner: “The New York Times reports that in order to increase jobs, your administration is considering creating a “Department of Jobs” by, among other things, merging parts of the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the Commerce Department, and economic divisions of the State Department.

Speaking of creating cabinet-level departments, the Energy Department was created in 1977 when the U.S. imported 35 percent of its oil. The department’s purpose was to make the U.S. energy-independent. Since its creation, the department has spent hundreds of billions of dollars and has 109,000 employees and contractors. We now import 65 percent of our oil and no new nuclear power plants have been built in over 30 years.

The Department of Education was created in 1980 for the purpose of improving U.S. education. Since then, overall per pupil K-12 spending has increased (in constant dollars) from approximately $6,000 per year to $12,500 per year. Hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent by the department since 1980, yet scores for 17-year-olds on the National Assessment of Educational Progress — often referred to as “The Nation’s Report Card” — have remained unchanged.

Why should Americans expect a Department of Jobs to improve our jobs picture when the Energy Department didn’t improve our energy independence and the Education Department didn’t improve our test scores?

What will a Department of Jobs do that other agencies don’t already do?

Will the Department of Jobs render the Department of Labor obsolete?

How many non-government jobs do you expect the Department of Jobs to create annually and in what occupations? What will be the average cost of creating each job? What will be the Department’s initial budget?

The New York Times also reports that White House press secretary Jay Carney, commenting on job-creation proposals, said, “If you’re talking about a stunt, I don’t think a stunt is what the American people are looking for.”

How is rearranging bureaucracies, ostensibly to create jobs, not a stunt?

Why isn’t this proposal evidence that you’ve run out of substantive ideas to increase the number of jobs in the U.S.?
