They Said It! September 8th Flashback

- September 8, 2011

Obama’s Speech Tonight Might End Up Seeming A Lot Like His Own Speech From Exactly One Year Ago

Click To Watch Some Familiar Talking Points From Exactly One Year Ago

Exactly One Year Ago, Obama Said, “I’ve Proposed A 6-Year Infrastructure Plan That Would Start Putting Americans To Work Right Away.” OBAMA: “So this week, I've proposed a 6-year infrastructure plan that would start putting Americans to work right away.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)

ONE YEAR AGO …  OBAMA’S REMARKS ON THE ECONOMY

President Obama Claimed “The Economy Is Growing Again. … There Are Roughly 3 Million Americans Who Are Working Today Because Of The Economic Plan We Put In Place.” “The economy is growing again. The financial markets have stabilized. The private sector has created jobs for the last 8 months in a row. And there are roughly 3 million Americans who are working today because of the economic plan we put into place.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)

President Obama Attacked Republicans For Wanting To “Ride This Fear And Anger All The Way To Election Day.” “And so people are frustrated, and they're angry, and they're anxious about the future. I understand that. I also understand that in a political campaign, the easiest thing for the other side to do is to ride this fear and anger all the way to election day.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10) 

President Obama Said “I've Never Believed That Government's Role Is To Create Jobs Or Prosperity.” “See, I've never believed that government has all the answers to our problems. I've never believed that government's role is to create jobs or prosperity. I believe it's the drive and the ingenuity of our entrepreneurs, our small businesses, the skill and dedication of our workers that's made us the wealthiest nation on Earth. I believe it's the private sector that must be the main engine for our recovery.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)

President Obama Proposed A Tax Credit For Research And Development. “I want to change that. I want to change that. Instead of tax loopholes that incentivize investment in overseas jobs, I'm proposing a more generous, permanent extension of the tax credit that goes to companies for all the research and innovation they do right here in Ohio, right here in the United States of America.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)

President Obama Proposed 100 Percent Bonus Depreciation For Investments Made In 2011. “And I'm proposing that all American businesses should be allowed to write off all the investment they do in 2011. And this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment and will encourage large corporations to get off the sidelines and start putting their profits to work in places like Cleveland and Toledo and Dayton.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)

President Obama Claimed His State Bailout Saved Teachers, Cops, And Firefighters’ Jobs. “Mr. Boehner dismissed these jobs we saved—teaching our kids, patrolling our streets, rushing into burning buildings—as, quote, ‘government jobs,’ jobs I guess he thought just weren't worth saving. And I couldn't disagree more. I think teachers and police officers and firefighters are part of what keeps America strong.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)

President Obama Proposed Investing More In Infrastructure Because “One In Every Four Jobs Lost Were In The Construction Industry.” “Now, let me give you another example. We want to put more Americans back to work rebuilding America: our roads, our railways, our runways. When the housing sector collapsed and the recession hit, one in every four jobs lost were in the construction industry. That's partly why our economic plan has invested in badly needed infrastructure projects over the last 19 months, not just roads and bridges, but high-speed railroads and expanded broadband access. Altogether, these projects have led to thousands of good private sector jobs, especially for those in the trades.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)

President Obama Said “We Need To Rebuild This Vital Infrastructure.” “Now, there are still thousands of miles of railroads and railways and runways left to repair and improve. And engineers, economists, Governors, mayors of every political stripe believe that if we want to compete in this global economy, we need to rebuild this vital infrastructure. There is no reason Europe or China should have the fastest trains or the most modern airports. We want to put America to work building them right here in America.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks On The National Economy, Parma, OH, 9/8/10)
