Recycled: Obama Promised Post-Vacation Jobs Plan in 2010
August 30, 2011
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I am holding here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers (shuffling paper) a story from the Cybercast News Service, Monday, August 29th of 2011. I take that back! I'm sorry! (stammering) I'm sorry, ladies and gentlemen. August 29th, 2011? What am I saying! One year ago yesterday: "President Barack Obama, in an Aug. 29, 2010 interview with NBC's Brian Williams, said he would propose a plan for jobs and economic growth when he returned from his summer vacation," one year ago. I am not making this up. Don't you think the way I just did that was pretty clever? I sucked you all in, did I not?
Folks, we're getting instant replay here one year later: August 29th, 2010 (for those of you in Rio Linda, that's last year), Obama conducted an "interview with NBC's Brian Williams, said he would propose a plan for jobs and economic growth when he returned from his summer vacation, the same claim he made after returning from his vacation this year." Now, they're out there saying that Rick Perry is dumb. The Politico had a story yesterday: "Is Rick Perry Dumb?"
How smart is it for Obama to repeat the same pledge two consecutive years -- actually, one year apart -- that he would have a jobs plan after returning from a Martha's Vineyard vacation? He went to Martha's Vineyard last year. He told Brian Williams he was gonna have a jobs plan and he was gonna announce it to the nation when he gets back from vacation. One year later, almost to the day, Obama says, "I'm gonna have a jobs plan when I get back from vacation." So the question is, how did last year's jobs plan work? In fact, does anybody even remember what it was?
