Can't Wait: Conservative Media Attack Obama's Jobs Plan Before It's Even Released

Conservative media have attacked President Obama's jobs plan as a "catastrophe," a "political stunt," and a "giveaway" to groups that Obama "favor{s}" before the plan has even been released.

Obama's Jobs Plan Has Yet To Be Released...

AP: President Obama Will "Deliver An Address On Jobs And The Economy To A Joint Session Of Congress On Sept. 8." The Associated Press reported:

In a retreat after an hours-long test of wills Wednesday, President Barack Obama agreed to deliver an address on jobs and the economy to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 8, yielding to House Speaker John Boehner, who had balked at Obama's request for a Sept. 7 speech.

Obama's address still gives him a grand stage to unveil his economic agenda, but it falls on the same evening as the opening game of the National Football League season. White House officials were working on the precise timing of the speech. {Associated Press, 8/31/11}

...But Right-Wing Media Have Attacked It Anyway

8. Indeed, Obama is asking for support even before the plan is released.

Not really a surprise that we'd see an attack even before the plan is released. I mean, we already know the GOP will oppose it, regardless of whether the plan is to their liking or not. Why postpone the attack just because the plan's unveiling was postponed?

Makes sense, in a pretzel-logic sort of way.

2. Hell, who needs a RW media?
Their minions have been attacking the President's plans for DAYS now...right here on an ostensibly 'Democratic' message board. Things that make ya go, 'hmmm...'...or perhaps not. No surprise on MY part, for damned sure!

Please tell me the WH won't be blindsided when they get ripped for the millionth time and this proposal gets thrown back in the President's face. Please tell me they're gonna fight for it!!!

5. Well of course they have
Think about it...anything in the plan that's not off the cliff far right is considered evul-socialist-communist-America-hating. They're just being proactive about it.

If we're not working 80 hours a week in non-paying sweatshop jobs, Republicans will call the plan a travesty to America.

6. Here too
They may as well. They have no intention of doing anything no matter what it contains.

7. If they wrote it for him and he read it verbatim they would still attack it.
All I ask is at the end of the day Obama does not say "Thank you"
