Obama’s Contradictions In Jobs Debate…

Writing about President Obama’s campaign for Stimulus 2, The Associated Press caught three contradictions coming out of the White House:

  • CONTRADICTION #1: Obama Does Bring Republicans And Democrats Together…In Opposition To His Tax Hikes: The biggest piece of the payment plan would raise about $400 billion by eliminating certain deductions, including on charitable contributions, that can be claimed by wealthy taxpayers. Obama has proposed that in the past — to help pay for his health care overhaul, for example — and it's been shot down by Republican lawmakers along with some Democrats.
  • CONTRADICTION #2: As Obama Accuses Republicans Of Playing Politics, Obama Plays Politics: “And even as Obama was accusing Republicans of playing politics, he and his Democratic allies were marshaling an aggressive political response of their own.”
  • CONTRADICTION #3: White House Avoids Estimating Job Creation Only To See Obama Say Jobs Plan “could Mean An Additional 2 Million Jobs”: The White House, which has gotten burned in the past by making overly optimistic job-creation predictions, has avoided estimating how many jobs the package would create. But in an interview Monday on NBC News, Obama embraced an estimate from an outside economist, Mark Zandi of Moody's Analytics, and said the bill "could mean an additional 2 million jobs."
