Pass This Bill?
Okay, Let’s Do It. Hey you, Mr. Clerk of the House, what’s the File Number of the President’s jobs bill? Let’s call it up right now and take a vote.
Huh? There isn’t a House File number? Why not?
What do you mean the bill hasn’t been written, yet? He just called on us to pass it, a dozen times.
The President is going to start writing the jobs bill next week?
Then why in Hell did we have to listen to his speech last night? Why the hoo-haw about scheduling the speech on the night of the Republican debate, the hysterics about rescheduling it to the night of the Packers game, the wailing about the discourtesy of Republicans not responding to the speech, not even attending, when in the end it turns out the Republicans were right all along – there’s no point in responding, there’s no point in even attending, because there’s NO BILL TO PASS.
This entire episode was empty hot air from an empty suit. Worse than Carter, which I wouldn’t have believed possible.
Worst. President. Ever.
It’s always tempting to run a poll – but a poll with only two options is kinda anticlimactic.
