RICK PERRY’S JOB CREATION CLAIMS
As America is introduced to Rick Perry of Texas, we hear claims from this governor who replaced Gov. George W, Bush that are not true. While a whole lot of jobs were created in Texas, Rick Perry cannot lay claim to them. Anderson Cooper of CNN explains:
“Cooper also noted some of the help the state received for its relative economic boom: $6.4 billion in federal stimulus money, which did not get rid of a serious budget shortfall in 2009. Cooper brought in Republican strategist Alex Castellanos and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile to parse these numbers, and Castellanos did argued that much of the federal money was taken from the states initially and so Perry had an argument that he was merely asking for money back that was taken from him.” Alex, if we allowed the states to reclaim their tax money, what would be point of taxes? GOP governors took money under false pretenses. They praised President for stimulus money with one of their tongues and decried the President with the other. Rick Perry’s is revealing his strange ideas about governance and the American people find them abhorrent.
PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BUT ONE PART OF OUR GOVERNMENT. MUCH OF HIS SUCCESS WILL COME FROM WORKING IN CONCERT WITH THE CONGRESS. DEMOCRATS CONTROL THE SENATE ALONG WITH A RABID TEA PARTY MINORITY LEADER. THE HOUSE IS CONTROLLED BY REPUBLICANS WHO HAVE LATCHED ONTO THE ENERGY OF THE FRESHMAN TEA PARTY REPRESENTATIVES. THE HOUSE MINORITY LEADER IS NOT VERY VOCAL.
MR.PRESIDENT, THE MEDIA IS FULL OF THE PEOPLE’S CALL FOR YOU TO PERFECT A NEW AND BOLD PERSONA AND NOT APPEAR TO GIVE INTO THE OPPOSITION. GO INTO NEGOTIATIONS “CARRYING A BIG STICK” AND DO NOT LET THE CONGRESS ‘GOBBLE YOU UP.’
MAKE THIS CARTOON A LIE!
WE ARE LOOKING FOR BOLDNESS AND POWER IN TOMORROW’S ADDRESS FROM THE WELL OF THE HOUSE. PLEASE, SIR, IT’S SHOW TIME. SOME MIGHT SAY, “BE BOLD OR GO HOME.” DON’T LET THEM SAY ON FRIDAY, “OH, IT WAS A GOOD SPEECH.” LET A CHORUS PRAISE REACH THE RAFTERS OF THE SHIP OF STATE!
