Let me get this straight. Eric Cantor (ReThug) thinks President Obama should just slow down, focus on one thing at a time – preferably the economy – because “people are out of jobs!” This from a jackass who voted against the stimulus package. If Mr. Cantor is having a hard time keeping up then perhaps he needs to find another line of work.
Ya know what’s it’s called – multitasking.
Although I’m not a fan of MSNBC’s ‘First Thoughts’ – specifically Chuck Todd, who I think is a goddamned dunce – Domenico Montanaro has it in these first few sentences.
*** Isn’t it ironic? Here’s what might be going through the minds of key members of the White House team today: Many of the folks who helped get the country into this economic mess — including Wall Street and even a few financial pundits — have been complaining the loudest that the administration, just seven weeks on the job, isn’t up to the task. Their latest criticism: The Obama White House is doing too much. Rather than focusing exclusively on the economy, they argue, the administration is also working on health care (as it did last week), stem cells (yesterday), and education (today).
I’m with Matt Cooper at TPM. If Mr. Obama suddenly lurched off to some corner focusing on an irrelevant project that makes no sense – devoting, say “significant energy to a border dispute between Columbia and Venezuela or a revamp of the Law of the Sea Treaty” then I might worry or wonder.
The hell with all the critics…..
Were the same people asking if Bush was doing enough when………
a record 2.6 million jobs were lost in 2008 alone, and job growth under his administration was the lowest in 40 years.
And it goes on just a bit, trust me.
The man has been in office coming up on two months and the good ole’ white boys are complaining they might be shown up for what they are – lazy bullshitters feeding at the federal trough. These were the same guys complaining when Steny Hoyer told them a few years back that the House’s workday included Mondays AND Fridays.
“Keeping us up here eats away at families,” said Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), who typically flies home on Thursdays and returns to Washington on Tuesdays. “Marriages suffer. The Democrats could care less about families — that’s what this says.”
