President Obama just concluded another plea to the American People to cajole the Republicans into passing the Jobs Bill NOW (!). He was flanked by police, firemen, teachers (some, right out of central casting) and even a guy with a work shirt (sleeves rolled up) who looked to be a construction worker.
They were like a 21st Century version of the Village People.
As in his "Joint Session" speech, he repeated variants of the phrase "Pass the Jobs Bill NOW" ad nauseum, as though he were practicing some sort of mass hypnosis. Is this what passes for statesmanship these days? The entire episode was so contrived that it should have been an embarrassment to all involved.
