Be prepared for Thursday's speech.................
"Stimulus" will be replaced by "targeted measures"..............
OK, I listened to the Detroit speech. First, Hoffa's talk was union thuggery at it's best.
Obama mentioned...."We're not waiting for them.." Who's the 'we' ?? Who's the them??
If the 'them' is congress, then unless you are a dictator or king, you are waiting for them.
Is the 'we' the union people he was addressing? that's only @12% of the population.....isn't he suppose to be the president of all the people. That kind of talk is not the uniting force America needs.
Thursday's talk should be precious.
So much for not using violent rhetoric....................Hoffa said this was war, his people were the soldiers, and the rest of us are s.o.b.'s. What a great speaker.
Instead of saying that was a little rough on the talk, Obama thanked him for the intro. Class acts, both of them!
Now the president says we won't get his entire plan in Thursday's speech......then why the joint session ??
He says his plan will be let out little by little throughout the Fall. I'm calling Bull poop! He just needs the time to make it up as time goes on. He's got nothing. Bluff !!!
Hoffa talks like a crime boss.......
Considering both were once lawyers, how could anyone have any faith in either.
Obama: I 'pulled our country back from the brink'
In his Labor Day message to the nation, President Obama credits himself and his administration with having "pulled our country back from the brink" of economic disaster.
"In the last several years, we have pulled our country back from the brink, through a series of tough economic decisions," Obama writes. "While we have come far, great challenges still face us."
According to the Labor Department, the national unemployment rate stood at 7.6 percent when Obama inherited a faltering economy from George W. Bush in January 2009. Unemployment rose to 10.2 percent by October 2009, and, with the exception of February and March 2011, it has been at 9 percent or higher ever since. It was 9.1 percent in August -- a month in which the economy created no new jobs. In addition, economic growth has slowed nearly to zero, raising fears that the country is entering another recession.
Zero: The number of new jobs added in the month of August…
9.1%: The [official] unemployment rate for the month of August… From March 2009 (the month after the failed $1.2 trillion “stimulus” was signed) through August 2011, unemployment has averaged 9.4 percent. Prior to President Obama taking office, unemployment had not been above 9 percent in 28 years.
31: The number of consecutive months the unemployment rate has been at or above 8 percent — the level the president said unemployment would never reach if the “stimulus” was approved. …
13,967,000: The number of unemployed Americans looking for work in the month of August, an increase of 36,000…
2,431,000: The number of net jobs the economy has shed from February 2009 — when the Democrats’ “stimulus” was signed into law — through August 2011. …
45,183,931: The number of Americans receiving food stamps as of June 2011, only the second month in history with more than 45 million food stamp recipients. Today, 14.5 percent of Americans receive food stamps, an increase of 40 percent since President Obama took office.
The total cost for Obama’s “stimulus” will reach $821 billion per the Congressional Budget Office, plus at least $347 billion in interest for a grand total of $1,168,000,000,000.00 — a number too large even to comprehend. It is likely to bankrupt America, which in return for the money received essentially nothing.
Rumor has it that Obama will want jobless benefits extended................it's almost 2 years now (99weeks) . If anything it should be lowered. Where's the incentive to even try to find a job if you're going to get paid to stay home for 2 years??
the only difference here is... crime bosses will back up their talk.
Hoffa: “No Regrets” Over Speech Calling For Violence Against Conservatives, This Is a “War”…
(TPM) — Teamsters union president James Hoffa would say it all again if he could, he told TPM Monday.
Hoffa riled up Fox News and the right wing Monday with a Labor Day speech in Detroit in which he called Republican members of Congress “sons of bitches” and said union workers are ready to “go to war” with the tea party next year and “take out” Republicans at the ballot box.
Hoffa said he’d say the exact same words all over again.
“I would because I believe it,” he said. “They’ve declared war on us. We didn’t declare war on them, they declared war on us. We’re fighting back. The question is, who started the war?”
The speech came shortly before President Obama took the stage in Detroit — and Hoffa’s remarks certainly overshadowed Obama’s on Fox. But the Teamsters chief said he was just matching fired-up conservative rhetoric when it comes to organized labor and Obama with some fired-up rhetoric of his own.
[h=1]Obama’s “Country Before Party” Nonsense[/h]
News reports suggest that on Thursday night, the president will tell Republicans in the House and Senate that they should put “country before party” and endorse his proposals for job creation. The “country before party” line has become Obama’s new theme in the wake of the debt crisis, and the passion with which he invokes it indicates it’s something he actually and truly believes in.
And it’s utter nonsense. Offensive nonsense too. Obama isn’t truly asking Republicans to put country before party. He is asking them to elevate the interests and ideas of the Democratic party higher than their own ideas, their sense of what is best for the nation, and their deeply held convictions about the moral hazard posed by a too-large government and a populace too reliant on it. They won’t do it, and they shouldn’t, and the next time liberals complain that conservatives unfairly impugn their patriotism, Obama’s effort to do just that with his loyal ideological opposition should be thrown in their face.
White House: “No comment” after Jimmy Hoffa Jr. urged fellow union thugs to take out Tea Partiers during Obama campaign rally
(ABC News) — Despite President Obama’s repeated claims to change the tone in Washington, the White House has no comment this afternoon on Teamster Union leader Jimmy Hoffa Jr. calling Tea Party activists “sons of bitches” who Democrats should “take out.”
Hoffa made the incendiary statements before the president at a Labor Day rally in Detroit.
Warming up the crowd before President Obama’s speech in Detroit this afternoon, Hoffa warned the largely-union crowd that the Tea Party was waging a “war on workers” and said that, come November, they should “take these sons of bitches out.”
“We got to keep an eye on the battle that we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We’re going to win that war,” Hoffa told thousands of workers gathered for the annual event organized by the Detroit Labor Council.
“President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. . . Let’s take these sons of bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong,” he concluded.
So at the next Tea Party Rally what should I wear ?
And for added protection should I carry my union card or if there is violence will that just convict me ?
Everything in your post is a REPEAT of Megyn Kelly on fox this morning. Not a single word is your own. Not a single thought is your own.
Seriously, do you have any of your own thoughts?
Word for word, especially what you repeated about Jimmy Hoffa "union thuggery".... must you repeat everything you hear on fox news?
What J. Hoffa said is nothing more than political rhetoric.
You want thuggery? Try tea party members showing to rallies with guns. Those are the real threats to society.
tos, time to backup another wild claim you have made...........
"Try tea party members showing to rallies with guns. Those are the real threats to society."
When did this happen ?
Where did this happen ?
Who were they ?
Where did the acquire these weapons ? From the botched ATF gun running fiasco ?
What groups were they with ?
So far the only violence I have heard about is from union members attacking peaceful people exercising their rights.
Did forget about the guy who had his finger bitten off ?
Or the kid who was jumped by several much larger SEIU members wearing shirts that ID who they were with, who was only trying to sell some products to which the crowd might want . Much like your pal klein and his food carts.
Baba, did you forget the men involved were found NOT GUILTY of this hoax? Your man got what he asked for. He had a big mouth, threw the first punch and took the last punch.
There have been plenty of Tea Party ralies where people brought guns. Dont be silly, oh wait, you cant help it.
Go ahead, make my day and say these arent real pictures. I need a good laugh.
this is a good representation of a bible belt trailer park!
It's actually the same place Obama parks his illegal relatives in and we pay for their rent!
Oh, and what's wrong with trailer parks. People live in a home that's affordable for them....they work....they don't take handouts for their very existence. The double wides are as nice as any 1400-1700 square foot home.
Also, if you have a bible in your house you are somehow demented?? That's just sick!
[h=2]Bob Beauprez[/h][h=1]Jimmy Hoffa on Tea Party: Let's take these son-of-a------- out![/h]
As the warm up act for Barack Obama's speech at a Labor Day rally in Detroit, Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa, Jr. proved that big labor thuggery is alive and well and ready to go to war for Obama's re-election.
Referring to the President's political opponents and the Tea Party specifically, Hoffa incited the crowd of union members when he said there was a "war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party."
When the approving roar subsided enough he could be heard again, Hoffa spewed an familiar, bare-knuckled big labor threat; "President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son-of-a-*$#%!out and give America back to an America where we belong."
Remember when the left went nuts over Sarah Palin's reference to "targeted" congressional districts? And, whatever happened to the good old days when the Democrats just called the Tea Party Astroturf, racists, terrorists, and the enemy?
After Hoffa's tirade, Barack Obama gave one of his nauseating can't-we-all-just-get-along pleas for Republicans and troubled citizens to blindly and silently support the blah-blah-blah he's scheduled to roll out in yet another jobs speech on Thursday night. I expect Obama is planning for his kumbaya moment sometime after Hoffa's Army eliminates all the dissenters.
