Obama, Jimmy Buffett, and…… Jobs!

When I wrote my last post, our President was on his way to Martha’s Vineyard for a much needed vacation. But first he made one small detour taking his Death Star Bus caravan through the Iowa countryside to get “feedback from “Middle America” regarding the sorry state of the economy. He then promised everyone to unveil a plan to create jobs and happily motored off to the Vineyard to rub elbows with the “people who own private jets”.

I'll tell you my plan after my vacation


I had suggested that the President use his vacation to do a homework assignment and come up with three ideas to help get the economy back on track. Evidently he did that and more with the result being a Presidential address to the nation during a Joint Session of Congress. It was here that he unveiled The America Jobs Act; a half trillion dollar program designed to boost nothing except deficit spending and of course provide him with a platform for his 2012 Presidential campaign.

Jobs Bill Speech

You must pass this bill NOW!


Where was the money going to come from? Well apparently from the people he had just vacationed with. The one’s with the private jets and private yachts and all of the other unpatriotic wealthy Americans who were not paying their “fair share”.

Jobs Creation

If you love me you will pass this bill!


The President also proposed a new “Buffett Rule” to help the unemployed in their plight. Anyone know what that is?

Watchin the sun bake

All of those tourists covered with oil….

It definitely sounds like it was conceived on Martha’s Vineyard. But Mr. President, what about the millions of people that can’t find jobs? How will the Buffett Rule help them?

Strummin my six-string
On my front porch swing
Smell those shrimp they’re beginnin to boil

But you already said that there weren’t enough shovel ready jobs during the initial trillion dollar stimulus. Green Jobs it turns out are costing $5 million a piece to create. So how can spending another half trillion dollars work?

….there’s booze in the blender
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

So realistically you don’t really believe this Jobs Bill has a prayer? You’re just proposing it so that you can blame Republicans for not passing it and create the “class warfare” issue so vital to your next campaign?

Wastin away again in margaritaville
Searching for my lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame (Christina Roemer?)
But I know it’s my own damn fault!

If you ‘d like to watch the Buffett Rule in action just go down to “Margaritaville”, which has been set up in the Wall Street area and talk to some of the inhabitants.

When asked why he was protesting, one guitar strumming activist said; “I don’t know dude….but this thing rocks! I quit my job to come here”.   Sounds about right.

And that’s the way it is here: “a little left of right”.
