American Elephants


“A Year of Action” Same As Last Year, And the Year Before. by The Elephant's Child

President Obama’s in his weekly address, called for “A Year of Action.” He visited a company in Raleigh, North Carolina that makes electric motors that might save businesses money on energy costs and cut “harmful [but nonexistent] carbon pollution.” He said it was part of his push to make America home to more high-tech manufacturing to make America more attractive for good jobs for the middle class.

Then he added these shameless whoppers:

And increasingly, we are.  Thanks in part to our all-of-the-above strategy for American energy, for the first time in nearly two decades, we produce more oil here at home than we buy from the rest of the world.  We generate more renewable energy than ever, and more natural gas than anybody.  Health care costs are growing at their slowest rate in 50 years – due in part to the Affordable Care Act.  And since I took office, we’ve cut our deficits by more than half.

So we are primed to bring back more of the good jobs claimed by the recession, and lost to overseas competition in recent decades.  But that requires a year of action.  And I want to work with Congress this year on proven ways to create jobs, like building infrastructure and fixing our broken immigration system.

Our booming production of oil has nothing to do with his “all-of-the-above” strategy. It is entirely produced by private enterprise on private property in spite of all his efforts to shut down any possibility of drilling. Health care costs are not slowing because of the ACA, but because of the recession and new diagnostic tools and new drugs saving lives. And the deficit was cut by the sequester. Other than that, he will act on his own to create opportunity and jobs, fair shot to get ahead, infrastructure, jobs lost to overseas competition (in other words don’t blame him), and a Year of Action— and he firmly believes this can be a breakthrough year for America. He’s focused on that every single day of this year.

Clueless. Utterly clueless.

“He’s focused on that every single day of this year.”

Only until he’s focused on something else…
