"Obama challenges Republicans on Goal they Embrace"
"CHALLENGES?" WHAT? My subject line is the title for the following article by Erica Werner from Associated Press:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is promoting his efforts to make government more efficient and to persuade companies to bring jobs back to the U.S. from overseas.
He rolled out those election-year ideas this past week and used his radio and Internet address Saturday to urge Congress and the private sector to get on board.
The proposal is a challenge to congressional Republicans because it embraces the traditional GOP goal of smaller government.
"These changes will make it easier for small-business owners to get the loans and support they need to sell their products around the world," he said.
Z: Isn't this all what Republicans have been clamoring about for a very long time?! So the article title suggests Obama's about a "Challenge" instead of an "embrace"? Why? I think a better title to the article would be "Obama EMBRACES the Goals Republicans have embraced ...(for years)..." More from the article:
Obama is also promising new tax incentives for businesses that bring jobs to the U.S. instead of shipping them overseas, and he wants to eliminate tax breaks for companies that outsource.
Z: Again, he's embracing Republican goals. Where's the 'challenge?' By the way, does he know about his buddy, Jeffrey Immelt, the head of his Job's Council, shipping of jobs overseas? Yes, the Left denies it's a problem and it's okay when the Left does it, but it IS shipping jobs overseas! And now he's against it? Why now, 3 years into his office?
