Whiner-In-Chief Continues To Complain In Weekly Address

Obama is like the Terrell Owens of politics, albeit, without the same talent level as T.O. Plus, whenever I hear him speak nowadays, I’m starting to hear the voice of the Blueberry Girl from the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory movie

As we work to rebuild our economy, I can’t imagine anything more common-sense than giving additional tax breaks and badly-needed lending assistance to America’s small business owners so they can grow and hire.  That’s what we’re trying to do with the Small Business Jobs Act – a bill that has been praised as being good for small businesses by groups like the Chamber of Commerce and the National Federation of Independent Business.  It’s a bill that includes provision after provision authored by both Democrats and Republicans.  But yesterday, the Republican leaders in the Senate once again used parliamentary procedures to block it. Understand, a majority of Senators support the plan. It’s just that the Republican leaders in the Senate won’t even allow it to come up for a vote.

That isn’t right. And I’m calling on the Republican leaders in the Senate to stop holding America’s small businesses hostage to politics, and allow an up-or-down vote on this small business jobs bill.

You’re welcome to watch the video, if your ears can take it. Senator Mike Johanns (Nebraska) fired back (disappointingly, this is still not on the GOP website)

Hello, I’m Senator Mike Johanns from the great state of Nebraska.

I begin with a very sincere question for our President.

Isn’t it time, Mr. President, to tone down the rhetoric and to govern?

I’m a relatively new member of the U.S. Senate.  But, I’ve had an opportunity to serve in the Cabinet; to govern a state; and to serve as the Mayor of a wonderful community.

And I learned early on that to advance an agenda, a leader needs to pull people together.

You talk about creating jobs and that sounds good, but your policies just do the opposite – with a fiercely anti-business tone.

Let’s take an honest look at the impact of your agenda……

Read the rest. Video is available at Johanns’ Senate website, or, go here.

    If they want to give small business owners a break, why not CONTINUE the Bush tax cuts? Wouldn’t that be easier?

    • Na, they prefer to blamestorm. If they extend the tax cuts, and the economy comes back strong, then the Dems whole rationale that tax cuts do not stimulate the economy will collapse, and it will furthermore show that their whole stimulus and other measures were worthless. Can’t have the masses understanding reality.
