Tone Deaf

What we've got here is...failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.     
Just when you think he might be getting the message, poof! Back into leftist field. It almost felt like the Obama administration heard the "Scott Heard Around the World" when he came out the next day talking about how he was going to focus on jobs. Nothing to see here in the healthcare front, but for now he was going to talk about jobs. Well? Good, right? After all that was the message that blue state Massachusetts said it was trying to send him. Even the stock market rose on the speculation that the administration may have changed gears, and had place healthcare on the back burner and decide to focus on jobs and the economy. After all, the population had spoken, and a message was delivered.

Well, not so fast there pilgrim. His idea of focusing on the economy is to piss off wall street. His threat, not articulated policy, but his threat of fines and regulation sent the market into a dive. And the next day, attempting focus on jobs, he talked about another pork laden stimulus bill. More spending.

He said a new stimulus spending bill emerging in Congress — the White House is calling it a "jobs" bill — must include tax breaks for small business hiring and for people trying to make their homes more energy efficient — two proposals he wasn't able to get into a bill the House passed last month
Guess what? The market dove again.
Some people just don't get it and they never will.
