Breakfast Scramble: Obama’s New Plan, Same As the Old

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Dumbo’s job plan — SSDD, from Reuters [1]:

VINEYARD HAVEN, Massachusetts — President Barack Obama is finalizing a jobs package that could include a program to refurbish school buildings nationwide and tax breaks to encourage firms to hire workers.

The package, to be unveiled in early September, is Obama’s chance to convince skeptical voters he can bring down the 9.1 percent unemployment rate and steer the United States away from another recession – ahead of next year’s election

Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me.   Stimulus I did not work.   Is doubling down on failure all of which Dumbo is capable?

Environmental wackos lay a green egg. Promised massive protest against Keystone XL pipline come up short, from Unlikely Hospitalist. Lonely Conservative [2]:

Perhaps the earthquake chased them away today, but the promised thousands of protesters of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline has thus far only amounted to an embarrassing 220. At this rate this we will be lucky to see a thousand people arrested. Undoubtedly, the DC police are breathing a long sigh of relief.

The minimalist narrative is hard to explain at this point with celebrities like Margot Kidder and Tantoo Cardinal lending their names and reputation to such a noble cause.

Who would you rather pay the Canucks or the towelheads?
