Joe Walsh Refuses To Attend Obama Jobs Speech That Isn't About Him

News

Screechy teabagger sideshow clown Joe Walshannounced he will not be a political "prop" in Barack Obama's jobs speech and will under no conditions sit still for a one-hour talk about unemployment that does not involve him. You tell 'em, Deadbeat Joe! If anyone is going to benefit from someone using Joe Walsh as a political prop, it better be Joe Walsh. Joe Walsh will stay at home hosting a sleepover party for small business owners and giving his own speeches about job creation, probably more than one of them, even. Take that, Obama!  The thing is, Walsh loves to snort and sneeze hyperbolic tears of apocalypse and damnation about the terrible regulations and taxes on small businesses that the GOP talks about like the bubonic plague, but we noticed another article next to the Joe Walsh article on McClatchy about the way small business owners actually feel about these beloved perennial Tea Party horrors. What do they have to say?


McClatchy surveyed small business owners to see how they felt about regulations and taxes:

Politicians and business groups often blame excessive regulation and fear of higher taxes for tepid hiring in the economy. However, little evidence of that emerged when McClatchy canvassed a random sample of small business owners across the nation.

"Government regulations are not 'choking' our business, the hospitality business," Bernard Wolfson, the president of Hospitality Operations in Miami, told The Miami Herald. "In order to do business in today's environment, government regulations are necessary and we must deal with them. The health and safety of our guests depend on regulations. It is the government regulations that help keep things in order."

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is among the most vocal critics of the Obama administration, blaming excessive regulation and the administration's overhaul of health care laws for creating an environment of uncertainty that's hampering job creation.

When it's asked what specific regulations harm small businesses  -- which account for about 65 percent of U.S. jobs — the Chamber of Commerce points to health care, banking and national labor. Yet all these issues weigh much more heavily on big corporations than on small business.

The rest of the story shares anecdotes from the business owners and is worth reading. It mostly proves Joe Walsh is a mindless yell leader who loves attention almost as much as he loves his sweet Congressional job doing nothing. [McClatchy/McClatchy]

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
