Labor Day launches Obama’s new jobs drive, during which we will hear the president talk about jobs as much as Colonel Sanders talked about chicken.
Only difference is, Colonel Sanders actually created chicken.
The Obama Jobs Festival 2011-2012 reminds me of the Recovery Summer. As you may remember, the Recovery Summer was last summer. So much for the Recovery Summer.
Speeches and gimmicks do not a successful economy make. Nor will the marginal proposals Obama is planning to adorn his jobs speech with this Thursday. Serious action – major tax cuts for stimulus coupled with long term cuts in entitlements – ain’t going to happen in the current politicized environment.
The time for serious moves was earlier this year, and it didn’t happen.
Anyway, here’s the schedule:
12:30 pm || Arrives Detroit
1:15 pm || Delivers remarks at Labor Day event in Detroit
2:40 pm || Departs Detroit
4:15 pm || Arrives White House
All times Eastern
