Boehner invites representatives of businesses to the BHO “jobs” speech (Updated)

Very interesting.  Speaker Boehner has invited guests from the small business community to the Obama speech tonight.

The Speaker’s guests are all employers who have run into unnecessary Washington-made barriers as they’ve tried to create jobs – barriers that will be addressed by legislation scheduled for action in the House this fall as part of the House Republican Plan for America’s Job Creators.

The list includes the CEO of Gibson Guitar, a farmer, CEO of a cement company, a mortgage company and others.  See a complete list at Gateway Pundit.

I wish he would allow each of them to speak.

O.M.G. Copycat.

“Uh, uh, look, I’ve got a bracelet, too.”

(See McCain’s remarks that preceeded this for full context )http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRsjkkmnPcU

Obama has invited a whole of bunch of people, including union boss, Richard Trumka, to sit with Michelle.  Maybe he is afraid of all those sons of bitches so he’s bringing his thugs with him.  🙂 

See list here:

(P.S. I just read that it is common for the president to invite guests to the SOU, but that’s just the way it struck me that he copied Boehner because I didn’t see his list until late this afternoon.) 

Whatever the case, he is a copycat.  The republicans put out a plan called  Plan for America’s Job Creators and he then calls his plan The American Jobs Act.  And can you believe that he AGAIN brought up Warren Buffett and his taxes when Buffett’s company owes a BILLION dollars in back taxes.  Do you think he is so ill informed that he does not know that???  http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-supporter-warren-buffetts-co-hasnt-paid-some-taxes-since-2002-2011-8

Connecting the dots: GE, Immelt, MSNBC, Economic Advisory Board

In line with my previous post, GE Shareholders Complain About MSNBC’s Left-leaning Bias and General Electric Company’s CEO, Jeffrey Immelt.

How did I miss this?

Jeffrey Immelt is serving on President Obama’s Economic Advisory Board.

So…..

  • GE is the parent company of MSNBC.
  • MSNBC for all practical purposes acted as an arm of the Obama campaign.
  • MSNBC continues with their biased coverage as of today, and I say today because I was just watching it, sort of like you would expect a PR firm to do.

But here’s the story in a Florida newspaper from February, 2009 that I just ran across while searching around on GE and Immelt:

“”The chief executive of General Electric Co. thinks President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus efforts will pay off eventually in fighting the recession.

CEO Jeffrey Immelt also says he sees some signs that things are stabilizing in a difficult economy. He told The Cincinnati Enquirer in an interview published Wednesday that his sense is that over time, Obama’s programs “will work.”

Immelt is on Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, meant to provide outside-the-Beltway input to the president.””

And this, more recently, from April 8, 2009:

“”The chief executive of General Electric Co. thinks President Barack Obama’s economic stimulus efforts will pay off eventually in fighting the recession.

CEO Jeffrey Immelt also says he sees some signs that things are stabilizing in a difficult economy. He told The Cincinnati Enquirer in an interview published Wednesday that his sense is that over time, Obama’s programs “will work.”

Immelt is on Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, meant to provide outside-the-Beltway input to the president.””

And don’t forget about the bailouts. Here and Here.

Do you think there’s a teeny, tiny little conflict of interest here?

I really think it’s the biggest heist in history.  Or – there’s more than one way to rob a bank.
