“American Jobs Act” Speech

Obama’s American Jobs Act Speech: Sign Of Changed GOP Attitude Or Opening Salvo Of Obama Reelection Campaign Against Republicans?

Barack Obama’s American Jobs Act speech, calling for a $447 billion dollar combination of tax cuts and spending programs to help us out of the economic mess we are in, has received a surprisingly good response from GOP leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor.

Obama called for the end of the “political circus” in Washington, DC, referring to public perceptions of Congress, which has reached a low in polls of 13 percent in favor and 82 percent against, along with 54 percent wishing to throw out all members of Congress and start all over in November 2012.

It seems as if it may have resonated with the GOP, although one cannot be sure how the Tea Party radicals in the House will react, and whether they will work with Boehner and Cantor.

The answer is that Obama should work with the GOP leaders, and if they can come along and cooperate on what is good for the nation, all well and good!

But if they do not, then it is the opening salvo in the Obama reelection campaign, with Obama going into every congressional district of a recalcitrant Congressman, or the state of every recalcitrant senator, and bringing public pressure on them, and hopefully defeating many of these reckless members of Congress!
