Yes, he thinks we're stupid
This is O's plan for the next four years. Hilarious. Evidently his strategy was to wait until after the debates to print the 3.5 million copies of this glossy, cheesy little 20-page booklet (where almost every page has a picture of--you guessed it--Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm. If he'd published it sooner, Romney would have eviscerated his "plan" during the debates.
Here are a few of the comments I'm reading about O's plan for the next four years:
Rich Lowry at Politico: "Obama's pathetic picture book." "As an artifact of the diminishment of President Barack Obama, it is hard to top his newly released pamphlet, 'A Plan for Jobs & Middle-Class Security' . . . . If the pamphlet works, it deserves to join the ranks of the classic picture books of all time, right up there with 'Go, Dog, Go!' and 'The Very Hungry Catepillar.'"
Paul Ryan is mocking Obama's new brochure on the campaign trail, calling it a "slick repackaging of more of the same" and a "comic book."
Obama, on the other hand, seems to think this little booklet is something quite swell: small-business creation (oh, when did he get religion on that issue?); a manufacturing policy; green jobs (!); and "education"--whatever that means, except that he's throwing a sop to the teachers' union. He keeps talking about hiring "millions" of teachers, and I simply don't know WTF this guy thinks he means by that. When did hiring teachers become a function of the federal government? Oh, he will also "find cuts where needed." And build roads. I keep hearing him say that he's going to "give" veterans jobs--building roads. Why does this O-tard think people want jobs building roads? Pass out the shovels! Besides--wasn't that what the stimulus money was for? I guess I'm just not smart enough to understand this guy's brilliant plan. Oh, yes, and he's going to ask the wealthy to pay a little more. I think he also has a line or two about energy in there.
Breitbart TV has a video of the Morning Joe gang mocking Obama's "plan." See it here. "Nothing new"--heh. One of the commenters writes this: "Listen to the tone of disappointment and resignation among these three. Whatever her name is [the snarky blonde, Mika Brzezinski--but I imagine the guy knows that] is acting like she's waiting on the limo to take her to the funeral; Joe is acting like a high school football coach hearing a story about his once football star, now gay, son has done; and Mark Halperin is completely resigned to the fact that his boy is finished."
The Columbus (Ohio--major swing state) Dispatch has an editorial by David Harsanyi: "Obama's jobs plan doesn't add up." "Members of the middle class will be pleased to learn that their children's future will feature marginally smaller class sizes and work as a midlevel functionary in a green-energy factory. According to the president, the best way to grow the middle class outward (whatever that means) is to strive for more menial-labor work in an unproductive manufacturing sector. Forward."
Even the NYT reports that the document contains "no new proposals, and was derided by a spokesman for Mr. Romney as a 'glossy panic button.'" The article uses the word "frenetic" to describe this past week of O's campaigning. The article also makes clear that O's schedule and the "tenor" of his appearances makes clear that "his primary mission now was to energize his own supporters and get them to vote . . . ." Good Lord. Maybe O is in worse shape than I thought, if that's the report from the NYT.
