Obama: We Need to Get a Handle on Long Term Debt So We Can Pay for Jobs Programs Now

The Obama administration is fully aware that the unemployment rate needs to drop if the president is to have any hope of re-election, so brace for more artificial measures to push down unemployment (besides increasing food stamp usage and extending jobless benefits). What will Obama propose? Mobilizing for a space alien attack? Possibly. But most likely, should the president’s spoken “plan” ever make its way to paper, more “stimulus” could be in America’s near future:

As he prepares to give a major speech with fresh ideas to jump-start the economy, President Obama told a Kansas City television station Tuesday that he wants to rein in the deficit in the long term in order to spend on jobs programs “here and now.”
[…]
“I think that we’ve got to take a longer term view — how do we deal with our deficit and debt in a long-term way? If we get that under control, we can actually pay for some additional job programs in the here and now,” Obama told FOX 4 in Kansas City. “It’s that kind of combination that I want to be able to present to Congress when they come home.”

John Boehner’s Press Secretary responded to the “another plan delivered via speech” approach (h/t HAP):

null

The CBO has said they can’t score speeches — so naturally another speech it is!

In other “Jobs Tour” news, the bus itself has helped create jobs. Well, in Canada, but it’s a start:

WASHINGTON — President Obama is barnstorming the heartland to boost US jobs in a taxpayer-financed luxury bus the government had custom built — in Canada, The Post has learned.

The $1.1 million vehicle, one of two that Quebec-based Prevost sold the government, has been tricked out by the Secret Service with state-of-the-art security features and creature comforts.

At least the Canadian buses would explain the recent appearance of all the hockey sticks.

Also, a couple of days ago, President Obama told the auto industry, “You can’t just make money on SUVs and trucks.”

Judging from his Midwest motorcade, you certainly can if you sell to the administration’s Motorcade Czar:

*****

They were going to include a Volt in the motorcade for “green” promotional purposes, but TOTUS refused to share its extension cord. That’s probably for the best anyway, because this guy was scheduled to drive.
