Congress is Growing Tired Listening to Obamas Speeches

Not only the GOP getting weary of Obama's speeches, America is yawning too. For the beginning, Obama had America listening to every work, but now, everybody is tuning him out. The upcoming job speech is going to be the same recycled rhetoric Obama had used for the past 3 years. From day one of his presidency, Obama talked about jobs. Three years later, Obama is still talking about jobs. There is a good chance he will do the same next year.

(Politico) — South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint said Sunday he’s “tired” of President Barack Obama’s speeches and predicted it would be difficult to watch the president’s much anticipated jobs speech on Thursday.

“I’m so tired of his speeches it’s going to be hard for me to watch,” DeMint, a Republican told Candy Crowley on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Last week, Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) — who, like DeMint, affiliates with the tea party — drew fire for declaring he would not attend Obama’s speech, and even calling the president “idiotic.”

DeMint, though, made no such declaration and instead focused his criticism on the expected content of the speech, urging the president to send Congress legislation detailing specific proposals.

“What I’ve heard the president is going to talk about Thursday night is more of the same: extending unemployment benefits, payroll tax cuts,” DeMint said. “I just don’t think those things are going to create jobs.”
