James Pethokoukis: Obama's jobs bill totally political, not serious

On Bill Bennett's "Morning in America" radio show, heard early in the morning, James Pethokoukis said Obama's job proposal is totally political and not a serious proposal.  He said there is no serious effort at entitlement reform, but at the same time calls for what amounts to 1.5 trillion dollars in tax increases. He calls that unbelievable.

Mr. Pethokoukis said Obama's proposal just goes along with his main goal since he came to office: Income redistribution.  But it's not just take from the rich to give to the poor. It is take from some groups he doesn't feel worthy [like non union workers, entrepreneurs, etc.] and give to those he feels entitled, [like the unions, his Democratic constituents, government workers,  the "green" companies, etc.].

I agree totally with James Pethokoukis. President Obama is not serious about job creation, only about income redistribution so he can pick the winners and losers of America.  As almost all the pundits are saying, Obama knows his plan will get nowhere in congress, and in fact is hoping it will get nowhere, so he can blame the Republicans in the house for the bad economic conditions.  It won't work.  Whether fair or not, the president is the one who gets the credit or the blame for the economic conditions of the country.

This income re distributor will be given his walking papers in 2012 by the American people.
