Whacked with yesterday’s woeful jobs report, President Obama traveled to Minnesota to jazz up voters and remind America of his current economic stimulus strategy. He pushed his going-nowhere-in-congress mortgage refinance redistributionist strategy. You know, the one he hyped in his last State of the Union address.
Well, yesterday Obama upped the ante.
To prove he’s a real solutions guy – someone who really thinks out of the box – he went a step further by proposing a groundbreaking new idea…
“Buy furnace thingamajigs.”
“I assume there are some folks here who could use $3,000 a year,” Obama said. “Let’s get that done right now. That means they’re — you know, if you got $3,000 a year extra, that helps you pay down your credit cards. That helps you go out and buy some things that your family needs. Which is good for business. Maybe somebody will be replacing some thingamajig for their furnace. They’ve been putting that off. but they got that extra money, they might just go out there and buy that thing.” ~ Barack Obama, June 1, 2012
Oh, yeah. That’s the solution. Let’s get that done right now.
Reminds me of another one of Obama’s brilliant ideas.
In the summer of 2008, while running for president, Obama revealed his energy plan for America. A plan where “we could save ALL the oil they’re talking about getting off drilling”:
“Inflate your tires.”
Looks like this isn’t going to be another one of Obama/Biden’s “summers of recovery.”
It’s going to be the whizbang summer of distraction with doohickeys, whatchamacallits, whoseamajiggers, and thingamabobs.
