Maxine Waters Ready to Take On Barack Obama


This will be fun to watch. The crowd at a Detroit Jobs Fair have given Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) permission to go after Barack Obama on jobs. Waters told them (not her constituents, but never mind) that if they will “unleash” her, she is “ready to have the conversation.” The Congressional Black Caucus sponsored the Jobs Fair, and at least one other in Cleveland. Can’t begin to guess what these gatherings have cost “We the People.” Congressman John Conyers was in attendance in his home district. He is demanding a meeting with Obama pronto.

Wonder if Waters’ constituents ever think about her threatening to nationalize the oil industry? Or her party’s drilling moratorium in Gulf states – 190,000 jobs ready to be created right now! Or how she pushed to provide loans for homes many could not afford? Or the 150 jobs at Johnson Controls paid for with $300 Million in Stimulus funds – cost to taxpayer: $2 Million per job, all courtesy of her President? Or how about the $18 Million cost to erect, maintained by Democrats? Or Obama’s last budget which received zero votes in the Democrat-held Senate? And specifically related to jobs and the lack of them, $108.7 Billion cost in 2011 of new regulations, courtesy of Waters’ party and the first Black President of the United States?

Do her voters give a flip?
