Obama’s ‘Jobs Act’ Too Much Genius For Republicans to Comprehend in One Bill

By Doug Powers  •  October 17, 2011 01:38 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Another bus tour is under way to promote the $447 billion “save the jobs of the same people whose jobs were supposed to have been saved by the first stimulus” bill.

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 17, 2011 09:32 AM

debsinger2 citizenbrad Time for some classic Obama Bus Tour photoshops (more here). Yep, he’s on the road again — campaigning on the taxpayer’s dime for who knows what whenever. In the aftermath of the Senate’s rejection of his massive government jobs slush fund, the White House will now push for passage of a slew of […]

By Doug Powers  •  October 12, 2011 11:20 AM

**Written by Doug Powers In June of last year, when “Recovery Summer” was just kicking off, construction began on an Orlando parkway to be named after President Obama and, fittingly enough, paid for with stimulus funds.

Obama’s Teachable Truthiness Moment

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 12, 2011 10:32 AM

I blogged last night about the Obama government jobs bill bust in the Senate. My coverage is here. The Hill’s report is here. The Dems know it’s another massive dud, yet Team Obama and his prog supporters are accusing opponents of wanting to deliberately harm the economy for political gain. Cloward-Piven projection at its finest: […]

(Click to watch) Well, another House hearing on Solyndra came and went this morning. In another Great Moment Of Transparency in the Age of Obama, the Solyndra execs took the Fifth as promised. The Democrats’ erstwhile chief inquisitor and witch hunter of Capitol Hill, Henry Waxman, demonstrated his trademark chutzpah by complaining that the GOP […]

By Doug Powers  •  September 19, 2011 04:56 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Privately, DC Democrats like Harry Reid know they need and even depend on the rich, but publicly they reject them like red-heads at Danish sperm banks.

**Written by Doug Powers Learning that Solyndra investors were placed ahead of taxpayers when it comes to who gets paid back in the event of a loan default wasn’t a big surprise.
