The President's Weekly Address: Crossroads on the Economy

From the White House blog:

The President lays out the choice between his plan to keep our economy moving forward, and the agenda put out by Republicans in Congress taking us backward to the special interest economy that created this mess.

No one highlighted this better this week than Jon Stewart. He took the "Pledge" from the GOPers and compared it to what they said in the past. Almost word for word, everything in this so called new pledge is exactly what they have said before.

John Boehner himself said, "We are not going to be any different than before". Now that is telling isn't it.

If people would just see this and realize how little new the GOPers have... surely they won't vote for them. How anyone could look at it and see they are wanting to take us back and act like everything didn't happen the way it did. Mostly due to their incompetence, spending and tax cuts.

I usually don't add anything to this, but as I said Jon did it so well, I think it bears watching.. So I am adding his take on the Pledge to the President's Address. Watch and behold why he has been voted the most trusted man in the news.

Like I commented at Sue's blog, New GOPers, just like the Old GOPers... no new ideas, not listening to the people and nothing to offer at all.

As you said, Annette, it's the "same old same old." Stewart nails it - frame by frame, a replay of everything they've ever said. Thanks for the clip - had heard about it, but hadn't had time to look it up - it's brilliant work!

So glad to see the Dems coming out swinging. Lots of surrogates for The President out there - Pres. Bill, Wasserman Schultz, my fave Joe Biden, and others. I'll pass on the Stewart clip in my post this week and suggest others do it, too. We must keep fighting the good fight for November and beyond!

Great post - thanks again, Annette!

Thank you MP... I always enjoy your visits and your comments. Jon is the best.. if only the so called MSM would do the same.

Sue said...

these two clips spell it out perfectly. It's all up to the voters now and you can be sure no republican is gonna turn their back on their beloved GOP. The way to win is to get out the vote, if dems vote we win!

Annette said...

Already the polls are turning.. not that you can see it by watching the MSM... but they are... I think we will be just fine.

Sue said...

i think so too! Did you read politicsususa? I'm gonna put a paragraph in my header. The tide is turning!

Sue said...

politicususa, I always put that other s in there!

Annette said...

Yes, I read it.. and I have been saying it all along that we will not do as bad as the pundits are saying. I hope my prediction proves
