The Perfect Summation Of Obama’s Economic Wisdom

Do I think this Keystone Pipeline is the greatest Economic Boost Evuh? Of course not, and I think that there may be some serious Kelo-related issues for it to even get built.

But to me the importance of this is it has forced Obama to play his cards instead of petulantly snooting from the sidelines, to choose between private sector growth or government growth, between independence or dependence.

He could not resist the latter, of course.

His “shot” at Republicans should be played and repeated by every single Republican candidate this year, for it clearly and unequivocally states his guiding philosophy:

“However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline,” he said, “they’re going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance.”

That’s right. In his mind the Government paying people unemployment insurance creates more jobs than private industry.

Good God.

    He must think there are a whole lot more greenies than people who want to work. What a douche bag. The jobs this would generate would be high paying and not just short term.
