Republicans Attack Obama For Having A Birthday Party
Apparently, you’re not allowed to do anything other than create jobs, if you’re Barack Obama (Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs?). The right wing is going apoplectic because there is a star-studded Chicago fund-raiser in conjunction with his 50th birthday. How dare he!
“With 9.2 percent unemployment, he could work on creating jobs, but I suppose the White House is thinking he should stick to the part of his job he really likes,” said RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski in an email statement.
GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney also took a swipe at Obama for the trip, publishing an online video Tuesday that highlights a spike in Chicago’s unemployment rate and falling housing prices over the past three years.
Do they also object that he does things like sleep at night, eat meals, and brush his teeth? Or does that take away from job creation? Are only Republicans allowed to have fundraisers? Republicans ran on a jobs platform that resulted in them taking over Congress. Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs?
