President Obama isn’t the only one taking a “jobs tour” of America these days. In fact, the skies and roads are crammed with jets and buses, as politicians take the pulse of an increasingly gloomy unemployed population.
While conducting a “For the People” Jobs Initiative Tour, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) found herself in Detroit, and confessed to the audience that she and her fellow members of the Congressional Black Caucus are “getting tired” of supporting President Obama:
This is a fairly astonishing vote of no-confidence, an “unconscionable” haymaker punch wrapped in a thin “we love the President too” boxing glove. Just imagine how grumpy Waters would have been if she knew Obama was going to postpone doing anything else about jobs for three weeks, while he jets off to Martha’s Vineyard for a luxurious vacation!
Waters actually asked the crowd for permission to go after Obama harder: “When you tell us it’s alright and you unleash us and you tell us you’re ready for us to have this conversation, we’re ready to have the conversation.”
I know Rep. Waters doesn’t owe me any favors, but ma’am, I’m begging you: please record that “conversation” for the rest of us to enjoy.
