Obama’s “Green Jobs” Pipe Dream
President Barack Obama has a problem on his hands when even his stalwart allies at The New York Times have no choice but to admit to a glaring reality: The President’s “green jobs” promise has failed miserably.
Last night at a town hall meeting in Miami sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus, the subject was supposed to be jobs, but Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D- FL) turned it to partisan politics and told assembled job seekers:
“Let us all remember who the real enemy is… the real enemy is the Tea Party… the Tea Party holds the Congress hostage.”
Congresswoman Maxine Waters, herself known for vitriolic anti-Tea Party rhetoric, and the Reverend Jesse Jackson were also present at the town hall. The stated intent of the gathering was to hold a preview discussion of a mega jobs fair in Miami held today.
Yep! I’m the real enemy! The enemy of leftist, socialist, communist policies. And DAMN proud of it!
For the past few months, sleep has been at a premium. Sleep a couple of hours, wake a couple of hours, sleep an hour, wake several hours, sleep half an hour…wake… over and over, night after night. I’d say pain had something to do with it, wouldn’t you? So, imagine my surprise when I woke up at 4:00 this afternoon! Yep….I’d say I was pretty flippin’ tired. Granted, there were periods of waking, but not for long enough to even count. Oh, well, I did wake up around noon, long enough to munch a bowl of cereal, and went right back to sleep.
I’d like to say there wasn’t any pain involved, but I’d be lying. But obviously, the brain decided to ignore it for a while….about 14 hours worth.
OH yeah….REAL tired.
