RUSH: Folks, we need to define what Obama is doing with this latest phony effort at a jobs plan, that now he wants everybody waiting breathlessly for on September the 5th. It can be said that virtually every prior so-called stimulus or jobs plan that Obama has wanted has been passed. What opposition? He has gotten whatever he wanted, and every one of his plans have been disasters. Every one of them, they have been frauds, they’ve run up the debt, they’ve killed jobs, every single Obama plan.

Now he’s going to have another plan, just in time for his reelection effort. And this is not going to be a jobs plan. It is a reelection plan. It’ll be poll tested. It will be a grab bag of
populist talking points. It will be designed to pass one of those Frank Luntz colored graph chart things that they do on Hannity. That’s how poll tested it will be. Whatever it is it’s gonna be called a jobs plan, but it’s a reelection plan, poll tested so when Luntz and his crowd puts it up there it’s gonna look like the independents love Obama again. Get ready for this. It’s all part of the smoke screen. He’s gonna throw all kinds of stuff against the wall in this plan, claim that it is the answer we’ve all been waiting for, that it came to him while sitting next to the flowing brook at Martha’s Vineyard. He will use it to attack the Republicans in Congress for blocking job creation. That’s where this is headed. He’s gonna run on his record, what it would have been were it not for Republican opposition, but the thing you must never forget is there hasn’t been any, or the first two years there wasn’t any. We didn’t have the numbers to stop him.

So this is not a jobs bill coming up. It’s not a jobs plan. It’s not a jobs program. It is a campaign effort through and through. Obama surrounded by political hacks, not prominent economists and businesspeople, and it must also be remembered and repeated endlessly that Obama will be proposing yet another plan to address his own screw ups. Everything that he’s going to be addressing is his own screw up. Every plan that he has put forward has resulted in lost jobs, higher spending, larger debt, sum total of Barack Obama’s presidency.

We need a deficit plan because of his irresponsible spending. We need tax cuts because of his tax increases, especially those associated with Obamacare that haven’t hit yet. They, by design, are going to hit after 2012 when he will no longer be accountable and can’t be made to pay a price for it at the ballot box. You don’t even want to contemplate what your back pocket is gonna look like after 2012 when Obamacare kicks in, if it isn’t repealed. We need a jobs plan because Obama has destroyed jobs. I think it’s ironic and even hilarious in a pathetic sense that Obama is trying to position himself as a leader when in fact he is in truth confirming, demonstrating his own lack of leadership and failed policies. How many jobs programs has he done? How many laser-like focuses have there been? And how many resulting disasters have we had? And so now here comes Obama with another one admitting, in the real world, his total failure. And this is the point that needs to be made clear by Republicans and others.

There better not be any Republicans that take this plan seriously, analyze it seriously, give it one ounce of genuine economic respect, because it is not going to be an economic plan. I hope we don’t see all these blog analyses of the intricacies of the plan because it’s not worthy of that. There’s one job plan that should be on every Republican’s table, one job plan that needs to be in every Republican’s arsenal, and that is defeating Obama in November of 2012 and removing Harry Reid as Senate majority leader. That is the Republican jobs plan: Get rid of Obama and get rid of Reid in November of 2012. Permanent vacation for Obama is the best jobs plan this country could have.
