$287,000 Per Job Created

Obama  287 thousand Dollars

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – July 5 –

President Obama is right; this is not a example of American exceptionalism. This is not Bush’s fault. President Obama and his advisors concocted a plan. They bragged about the millions of jobs created or saved. They even predicted 8% unemployment.  I’ve seen it everywhere, endlessly. Now, it turns out that each job cost $287,000. If I was President Obama, I would hang my head in shame, and at least admit that the cost was preposterous. Thank God I’m not him for more reasons than one..

By the way, Rush Limbaugh made a speech in Joplin Missouri yesterday. He praised the citizens of Joplin for their exceptionalism. Drug addicts, fat people, and Conservatives can give intelligent speeches, and promote conservatism. He urged them to be individuals, and not dependent on government.

 

Selection from the speech transcript: 

    MAN: Freedom!

    MAN: Liberty!

    WOMAN: Freedom!

    RUSH: I heard a key word here a moment ago.

    AUDENCE: Liberty! Freedom!

    RUSH: The word is "freedom," but I want you to stop and think about something very seriously: This country has produced opportunity and prosperity unlike any the world has ever seen before. The first reason is our Founders -- this country is a miracle. Our Founders believed in the power of the individuals not the power of an elite government --

    AUDIENCE: (cheers and applause)

    RUSH: -- to dictate for people.

    AUDIENCE: (cheers and applause) RUSH: The power of the individual. They knew that people using their God-given gifts -- their own ambition and desires -- could exceed their own expectations, could realize their dreams, and in so doing create the best and most prosperous country in the history of civilization. But there's one other element to American exceptionalism. This is a term, when people bandy it about, they think, "Well, we're better than everybody else. We're exceptional." That's not what it means. The history of the world is oppression, tyranny, dungeons. Not here. We are an exception to the way human beings have always lived on this planet. This is a nation blessed by God.

    AUDIENCE: (cheers and applause)

    RUSH: This is our exceptionalism. This is not a country chosen by God; we are blessed by God because our Founders -- it's all in our Declaration, folks. "We are all endowed by our Creator," there it is, "with certain inalienable rights, among them Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

    AUDIENCE: (applause)

    RUSH: That's all up to us. This country turns America loose, it turns individuals loose, and look what has happened in 235 years. We, even to this day, run the world but we do it benevolently. We liberate people from tyranny. When there is a disaster anywhere in the world, we are the first to arrive. Now...

    AUDIENCE: (applause)

    RUSH: You -- those of you here tonight from Joplin, Missouri --

    AUDIENCE: (cheers and applause)

    RUSH: You may not know it yet, but you are the essence of what the Founding Fathers had in mind.
