I don't know why I was surprised to see Owebama propose almost half a trillion dollars in new stimulus spending in his "American Jobs Bill" speech Thursday night.  What a joke this guy has become.  He is actually a caricature of himself now, and when you think he can't get any worse, he give a speech like Thursday's.

I did some quick math on his newest spending proposal:

  • Owebama proposed $450,000,000,000 in new spending Thursday night.
  • The 2010 census estimates there are about 112,000,000 households in the United States.
  • $450,000,000,000/112,000,000 = $4,017.86 PER HOUSEHOLD.
Over $4,000 per household!  Are you kidding me?!?  Granted, this pales in comparison to his last failed attempt to fix the economy with the same ridiculous strategy, but seriously, this guy needs to have his head examined.  

We all know this will never pass, thanks to the House of Representatives, and we also should be certain that Owebama knows this too.  He has to be just proposing something absurd, knowing the Republicans will reject it, and he can start up the cries of partisanship, gridlock, and the "party of no", in preparation for his reelection bid.  

We know the media won't hold him accountable.  Hell, they're editing transcripts of his speeches, in order to try and keep him from looking stupid.
