What happened to Pass this Jobs Bill, Bitchez?

papaswamp's picture

The Prez forgot the majic wordage...'Bitchez'....

If Americans want to know why unemployment figures are so high, they need look no further than these cowardly and despicable republican senators. Compassionate democrats have been trying desperately to help the poor during these tough times with fiscal stimulus programs and by investing in education and healthcare, but heartless conservatives won't even let Obama pass a common-sense jobs bill which would get this country working again. My heart goes out to all those affected by the ideas of spoiled brat libertarians, which have been spread by anarchist nerds and redneck doomers and have somehow managed to permeate the senate. I can only hope this country wakes up to the shocking implications of libertarian bigotry before it becomes a reality.

lol...good one.

The senate is, of course, controlled by heartless democrats.

Your irrelevant facts have no bearing on MDB's programming/ideology.  Now that I think about it, I suspect we should be honored to be in the presence of one of the few remaining believers in the two party "dichotomy"!

nmewn's picture

He does have a way of twisting expectations with results...seems like I've seen this movie before.

And here I thought spending bills had to originate in the house.  That must be one of the numerous passages redacted in that document they're supposed to give an oath to pretend to abide by....

nmewn's picture

You are correct, they do...at least until recently.

There are about 100 bills sitting on Reids desk right now that went through the proper channels...he's afraid to bring any of them before the senate as some may pass and have to be vetoed publicly by Barry.

He's Obama's little bitch ;-)

“Their strategy is to suffocate the economy for the sake of what they
think will be a political victory,” Jim Messina,

The best rebuttal:

"We have tried spending money.  We are spending more than we have ever spent before and it does not work.  And I have just one interest, and if I am wrong ...somebody else can have my job.  I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job.  I want to see people get enough to eat.  We have never made good on our promises. ...I say after eight years of this Administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started. ...And an enormous debt to boot."  -- Henry Morgenthau ( U.S. Secretary of Treasury 1937)

Wouldn't this be a hoot?

@MillionDollarBonus: Are you a professor at an ivy league university?? What's your real job? Why do you always say Keynsian drivel?

Pure Evil's picture

MillionDollarBonus_'s spiel is the equivalent of reading turd leaves. First he sits on the toliet, a bunch of shit spews out of his mouth, he then rises, faces the toliet and then proceeds to write down the day's Democratic talking points to be posted on ZH later in the evening.

Translation: He's so full of shit, he makes a sewage treatment plant smell like a bed of roses.

ElvisDog's picture

Don't be silly, MillionDollarBonus is for "entertainment purposes only". Mildly amusing, but don't get worked up about anything he writes.

Hey! I copyrighted that one! Great minds think alike...or it's the alcohol...

piceridu's picture

LOL- MDB simply awesome! Just think, we get the greatest ZH lounge show act by far for free...it never gets old. Please tell me you'll never leave!

Hey MDB, If you think the dems here are compassionate I suggest you try on some compassion from their heroes, like Mao, Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot. Do yourself a favor and move to Cuba or Venezuala, compassionate lot down there, sure you'll fit right in.  

thatthingcanfly's picture

What's funniest is how so many people writing responses to MDB simply don't get his sarcasm. As of this writing he's got 41 red ticks. The joke went completely and utterly over the heads of forty-one people here. Astounding.

To save others the trouble:

"Poe's law states:Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing."

I don't think it was sarcasm at all.  Hard to believe but there are people who think just like that.

A democratic senate votes down it´s own president?

Please explain this to a foreigner...

nmewn's picture

The president is insane.

You're welcome.

cossack55's picture

and the senate is stupid and the house is corrupt.

nmewn's picture

Actually, on this, the senate did the right thing...for themselves first...and the country.

I'm not sure you'd want me to at this juncture.

Please do, your answers are always the best, you live up to your namesake!

The GOP is insane, but unified.

The Dems are incompetent, and disunified.

Raynja's picture

the gop is unified? how do you work the tea party into that point of view?

papaswamp's picture

Not enough 'bring home said porkulous baconage' yet. Think 'more bribery needed'.

PartysOver's picture

The Big "O" has perfected the fine craft "Delusional Academia".

Enough said.

Jena's picture

Some of those Democrat Senators want to be re-elected in 2012 and they know they would not have a chance if they had voted for that bloated spending bill.

Tragic mistake. If this had passed, it would have done as much for the economy as QE1 and QE2 combined...um...lets see...well...maybe not mistake after all.

Spitzer's picture

As of now, the Fed and treasury can do no wrong. They can openly monetize debt, become the largest holder of treasuries, get downgraded, lie about inflation, you name it, the world still buys bonds. But when sentiment shifts, the Fed or the treasury can do no right. They can try and cut spending and raise rates but nothing will stop the capital flight. NOTHING.

When you have a bad president the elections can't come soon enough.

Elections bring only more bad presidents.
