Isn’t it Time to Pass the Small Business Jobs Bill?

President Obama urged Congress in his August Employment speech before the Labor Day Week-end to set aside partisan politics and be the leaders Americans want by coming together to pass a small business jobs bill to aid businesses when they return to Congress later in September. Will the Republicans set aside their political mindset before the November 2010 midterms and think about what is best for Americans instead of their party? One can dream… Continue reading

Congress Passed Resolution Against Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You Lie” Breach of House Decorum Rules

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a resolution 240 to 179 disapproving Rep. Joe Wilson’s violation of House Rules Code of Conduct when he unceremoniously shouted “You Lie!” to the President during a national televised speech at a jt. session of congress. Wilson had ample time to apologize to the House for his uncivil behavior towards President Obama during his nationwide speech on Health Care Reform. The resolution admonishing Wilson’s uncivil actions is solely to uphold well-established Rules of Decorum instituted by the House in 1909. Wilson violated those rules and should be properly called out for doing so. Continue reading

President Obama Gave an Encouraging Speech to Students

President Obama gave an encouraging speech of hope and responsibility to America’s school children today. Even Jim Greer, GOP chairman in Florida, after finally reading the speech recanted his earlier criticism of it and said “It’s a good speech, I’d let my kids watch it.” Unfortunately for some parents, who were caught on video crying and fearful about the speech in the days before President Obama delivered it due to the constant strident voices from uninformed political pundits and media personalities–including Jim Greer, their children missed the speech. That is the price their children paid for their parents misplaced crazed fear that their president might indoctrinate young people. The reality of the written speech and President Obama’s actual delivery of the speech proved the right wing pundits completely wrong about their deliberate mischaracterization of it. Continue reading

Yes…and it’s important for President Obama to clearly explain to Americans in a TV fireside and simultaneous internet chat why now is the time for meaningful Health Care Reform that includes at least a public option. This post includes President John F. Kennedy’s live historic 1962 Speech at Madison Square Garden to the American public about why the time had come then for Health Care Reform. President Kennedy said that night, “The business of government is the business of the people and the people are right here.” Continue reading
