Obama to Start ‘Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tours (Gettin' hot - Get outta the kitchen)
WABC - AM ^ | May 5, 2013

(WASHINGTON) -- President Obama will kick off a series of Middle Class Jobs and Opportunity Tours with a trip Thursday to Austin, Texas, a White House spokesman announced Sunday.

“In his State of the Union, the president laid out his belief that the middle class is the engine of economic growth. To reignite that engine, there are three areas we need to invest in: 1) jobs, 2) skills 3) opportunity,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.

“Even though some in Congress are determined to create more self-inflicted economic wounds, there are things Washington could be doing right now to help American businesses, schools and workers,” he said. “We need to build on the progress we’ve made over the last four years, and that means investing in things that are already creating good-paying, stable jobs that can support a middle class family.”

Since 1 Jan, how many travel days and speeches are we up to? I’m getting this feeling that the whole next four years might be one grand tour, with four hundred speeches.

Excuse me, Congress is doing this?
"Always accuse the opponent of doing what you are doing" - Alinsky.

He talks the smooth talk indeed, but his policies have been a disaster for the middle and employer classes. The working class most of all.
Let me guess, he will invest tax payer money into creating these "jobs, skills and opportunity".
Not at any time does it occur to him that businesses will do all those things without his help if only he would get out of the way.
He's has not only been cutting off the branches we're sitting on, he's hacking away at the trunk, all the while he's bragging how tall the tree will be once he's done.
Doesn't work that way Mr. 0bama.

Yes, they would, but what is the point of going on a jobs tour to one of the few cities that doesn’t have a jobs problem? Is he going to take credit? How?

Gosh. When Obama wins the presidency everything will be unicorns and roses.

(Except that the clown has been in office going on 5 years and it’s worse because he missed the turn to Ringling Brothers and wound up in the White House.)

"Invest". That's the word they use in place of "spending". We've been down that road a thousand times already. How about not doing the same thing and expecting different results?

Five years after first being elected, Dumbass is now going to focus like a laser on creating middle-class jobs by investing in "jobs, skills and opportunity."

WTF does that mean?

Notice how he never mentions small business - it's always about forcing the creation of more openings as little, easily controlled cogs within larger entities.

Bill Clinton loved to fly around too on the taxpayer dime. These idiots have short attention spans and crave the adulation of crowds and complete strangers. They love the fawning and arse kissing done by Democrat hacks they never met before. Each day they get up and say to themselseves — “What new way can I fool and lie to the American people today?”

He’s going on his jobs tour so he can get the hell out of Dodge when Wednesday’s Benghazi hearings heat up. He thinks he can get the ppl to focus on how he cares about jobs instead of how he didn’t care about a white gay man & other Americans.

Simple. Borrow more money from the Chinese to give to his cronies and then conjure up more "jobs created or saved" BS.

“Austin is the only city in Texas that would welcome him.”

...and it’s got a mayor - Lee Leffingwell - and a police chief - Art Acevedo - who are fully in support of Obama’s gun control.....

Wanna know how bad it is now?
Columbia school of business is raising money ($100B from Ron Perelman alone -$600B total) to TEACH entrepreneurship).
Used to be that one had initiative to ‘find a need and fill it’.

From the WABC site: “He will visit these places to learn what has helped them become successful and use these models of growth to encourage Congress to act,” Earnest said.”

Oh, so Cool Preezy doesn’t yet know what to do and needs to visit these selected groups to get educated? REEEALLY? Any chance any of these workers are undocumented illegals?
