Talker-in-Chief


From James Taranto:

Lather, Rinse, Re-Elect

The Associated Press reports President Obama has figured out what to do about the unemployment problem, and you’re going to want to sit down before we tell you. Ready? OK, here goes:

He’s going to give a “major speech.”

Wait, there’s more! The Los Angeles Times reports that he’s already “daring Republicans to block” the “job-creation package” he has yet to devise. Yesterday’s Dilbert strip offered a preview, with Pointy-Haired Boss playing the role of Obama: “This is the best plan in the world, and anyone who disagrees is an ignorant nuisance.”

The AP adds that since Republicans are likely to oppose the yet-nonexistent proposals, Obama “is already preparing to lobby the American public for support. . . . That would set up an issue for his re-election campaign next year.”

So, to sum up: Give a big speech, demand that Congress do his bidding, implore Americans to lobby Congress. Lather, rinse, re-elect. What a fresh new style of leadership!
