We'll just have to wait and see but it is fair to say today was not a good day for the Jack Ass, On top of this ignominious rebuff, Bill Clinton again rebuked him, calling for the Bush tax cuts to be extended in a time of recession.
So, let's indulge a little and fast forward to the evening of November the 7th, 2012.
Here’s the text of President Elect Romney’s brief evening television address to the nation, delivered on Wednesday November the 7th at 6.00 PM via all major channels.
“Good evening America. I’ve asked the television networks for the courtesy of a few minutes to speak with you in your homes this evening.
First, let me thank you for placing your confidence in me and my team for the next four years. I will work tirelessly and fearlessly on your behalf.
Today in America, one in every seven men and women who are willing and able to work full time is out of a job. That state of affairs is a disgrace. In fact it’s worse than a disgrace – it’s a national emergency. It has got so bad in these recent dark years, that one and a half million illegal immigrants have returned to Mexico because they think prospects for work there are better than they are in the United States Think about that.
My administration’s number one priority is to put people back into real jobs so that together, we can Turn America Around and you can support yourselves and your families, as once you were able to do.
I want to tell you how we will set about this great task so that you may feel reassured over coming days that help really is at hand. There are four measures we can take without delay.
First, I can tell you that when Mr Obama phoned me yesterday evening to offer his congratulations and good wishes, I asked him to immediately sign off on the commencement of the Keystone Pipeline project. This cannot wait another two days let alone another two months. We need those thousands of new jobs right now.
A few hours ago Mr Obama told me he has agreed to my request.
Second, we will open large tracts of hitherto closed federal land for oil and gas exploration and production. There will be stringent environmental controls. It is our goal to render the United States self sufficient in oil and gas and to be a net exporter within five years. The federal revenue from royalties, permit fees and taxes derived from these fields will be used to pay down our unacceptably high level of federal debt.
Third, our taxation system will be changed to close tax shelters currently available to wealthy people and to reduce the rates of income tax on ordinary Americans and on small business. Americans will keep more of their own pay checks for themselves and their families.
Fourth, we will repeal the law known as Obamacare, the real costs of which has been carefully hidden from the public. The threat of these huge and unknown costs upon businesses has been a major factor limiting employment and business expansion. The repeal of Obamacare will encourage many firms to resume hiring people without delay.
None of these four simple, practical and immediate measures I have outlined call for one dollar of extra government spending, falsely referred to by others as ‘stimulus.’ They will quickly generate for Americans real new jobs, in hundreds of thousands.
The Christmas season is almost upon us, with its fundamental message of joy and peace. I will be spending Christmas at home with my wife and family and no doubt many of you will too.. We wish you all a peaceful and joyous Christmas. I can promise you a more prosperous New Year.
God bless you all.
