The President proposed the "Jobs Act" nearly three years ago, but McConnell & the anarchists thought it was better to concentrate on "making Obama a one-term president". How'd that work out fer y'all?
The last "good idea" that a Republican had was when Eisehower inaugurated the Interstate Highway System in the '50s! Okay, Nixon signed the bill that created the EPA in the 1970s ... The wingnut "Nancy Pelosi is a boogey-woman" thing worked in 2010, but it's beginning to sound like Rudy Giuliani (it's been so long, I hope that I spelled it right?) using "9-11" to excuse every sleazy thing he's ever done!
ObamaLand: Nancy Pelosi praised Obama as "one of the most "practically" non-partisan presidents I have seen in the White House" who is intent on finding bipartisan agreement.
The other side points out: "Minority Leader Pelosi has voted against every jobs bill the Republicans have put forward in this Congress, including construction of the Keystone pipeline, the SKILLS job training bill and the Working Families Flexibility Act which offered working parents a more flexible work schedule.
I guess it is not a good idea unless a Dem comes up with it.

His legacy is to exploit trajedies for political gain !!!
The legacy is gettin' a little muddled.
Under BO, the NSA continues its unprecedented data grab and domestic spying. This is the same program BO campaigned against. What a hypocrite. Then when he is called to explain, he says the program is not what we think. Even Eugene Robinson thinks that is hooey.
Welcome to Obam land.
Apparently you have forgotten: Way back then, I agreed that you had a valid point.
Yes, Kunect... I DO remember.
BeRight, I don't recall saying this scheme was good OR bad, and I certainly didn't "OK" the concept.
His legacy is that he cant stand Americans.
BobDahler - Apparently you must have missed all my ranting, on former threads here, about Jeff Immelt serving as both the present, floundering CEO of General Electric AND Barack Obama's (former) head of his Jobs Creation Council.
That incestuous relationship represented a conflict of interest with me because of Obama's drive for abandonment of fossil fuels, in favor of green technologies, and Jeff "I haven't moved the GE stock value" Immelt needing new markets for GE's involvement.
ObamaCare? Medical digitized data transfer technologies in abundance need there. Who's ALSO into manufacturing such capable devices? Good ole GE.
So private funding is OK for bringing electricity to Africa but it is not possible to use private funding to re-start White House Tours?
luvthesouth: I stand corrected on the source of the funding for this enterprise. Happy Fourth to you too!
OK, I guess the White House tours for elementary students are still off. But the DCSC folks will be still furloughed since the Gov’t can’t manage its own budget. Which reminds me of the Air traffic controller’s fiasco: When it was decided to furlough controllers and keeping with the Obama mandate to make it as painful on the public as possible, the controllers were all furloughed on the same day at the busiest airports causing massive backups.
A more rational person would have furlough controllers at the smallest and less busy airports and spread the furloughs over a seven day period. What a bunch of hooey.
good morning and happy 4th of july to you bob. from cnn, it was reported that the 7 billion was being promised as part of an initiative that will be funded as follows.."The program includes $1.5 billion from the U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation and $5 billion from the Export-Import Bank, the White House said." further research finds that the usopic and the e-i bank, which is part of the executive branch of government, operate outside of congressional approval. the latter entity being criticized for it's "politically motivated" lending habits. both lay claim to not costing taxpayers a dime, which should please everyone.
He didn't "find" seven billion... He "called" for seven billion (over the next five years). The rest is up to Congress, that is controlled by Republican interests.
And thus begs the question: How far off is he from what you actually desire?
Seeing that General Electric will be the main benefactor of the largesse proposed by this administration, with the exploitation of the coal and oil reserves of South Africa... It is difficult for me to understand your characterization of Obama as a Green Weenie kind of guy. Quite the opposite it would seem to be.
Today Obama’s administration found 7 Billion dollars to set up windmills and green power in Africa but can't find a dime to have White House tours for elementary students. What a bunch of hooey. This coming month DCSC in Columbus and Dayton will be laying off workers because this administration won’t allow them to manage their budgets in a way to avoid layoffs. Obama wants maximum pain inflicted on the citizens in an effort to put the blame on someone else. More Hooey.
Legacy? Have at it.
Yes I can, (not go there). Have a good 4th everyone.
