He has two concerns: his next vacation and getting re-elected (which in a rational world would be impossible).

I’m still trying to figure how that $20 a week payroll tax reduction is going to rebuild the economy, even with those extended unemployment benefits that average 36% of a working wage AND the 70% increase in food stamp recipients!

Somehow using ‘urgent’ and the president’s concern don’t compute: not so urgent that it didn’t fall behind the $Trillion payback to his public sector union campaign supporters; a multi-Trillion bailout of foreign bankers; an asinine power play on healthcare; an illegal moratorium on drilling in the Gulf; thousands of job-destroying idiotic regulations circumventing the will of Congress; illegal arms sales to Mexican drug-runners; an illegal incursion into Libya; and $Millions in taxpayer subsidized extended-family vacations to Spain and South Africa; innumerable private White House concerts and parties; 75 rounds of golf and untold basketball games with his peeps.

Maybe ‘urgent’ has a new definition that we missed.

This White House has lied so often that everything they say is no longer taken seriously.
