Obama Declares God Wants His Jobs Bill Passed

President Obama went to another bridge to speak about his jobs bill that is languishing in Congress.  It still has no support from either party yet he continues to blame Republicans. If his jobs bill was so fabulous, wouldn't it at least have one Democratic sponsor in the House of Representatives?

A small amount of time was taken to have a vote on a non-binding resolution to state that the national motto is In God We Trust and it passed with bi-partisan support.  Instead of the President of all the people in the country mocked Republicans and Democrats in the House for not spending every moment on a bill that none of them want to bring up. 

The president rebuked the House of Representatives for passing a bill reaffirming the US motto "In God We Trust" rather than getting to work on his stalled $447 billion jobs program.
"That's not putting people back to work. I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work," the president said.

That's a bit odd, isn't it? Even of the arrogant and vain Barack Obama this is going a bit over the top.

In recent votes, several Democratic senators from conservative states where the president's economic policies are unpopular, have also declined to back portions of the jobs plans.

It's a tough re-election for Obama, despite the spinning coming out of the DNC and Oval Office. The country is in a funk and now Federal Reserve Chairman Bernanke has put out a of the next three years. He says unemployment will barely get below 9%gloomy prediction next year and jobs simply will not be out there. The economy is still recovering too slowly.

“I’m dissatisfied with the economy – unemployment is far too high,” said Mr. Bernanke after the Federal Reserve, after its latest meeting, reduced its estimate of US economic growth for the coming two years. It now foresees slower growth of 2.5 to 2.9 percent next year, and 3.0 to 3.5 percent in 2013, with the unemployment rate above 7.8 percent two years from now.
Instead of blaming Republicans for the woes of the nation, maybe President Obama could work with both sides of the aisle for solutions as he promised to do in 2008 while he campaigned for this term.
