Last Thursday, while millions of Americans were sitting anxiously as they wondered if Green bay Packers’ Quarterback Aaron Rodgers would gesture to his waist in a call for a fictional belt, President Obama delivered an all-important speech to Congress on the issue of jobs and the economy. The bulks of Obama’s ideas included a number of Republican ideas and proposals, which has angered many Republicans.
Here are a collection of Republican reactions from Obama’s speech:
“It never ceases to amaze me how unwilling this President is to hear the needs of ordinary Americans. I find it shameful that he’s offering a tax incentives to hire the unemployed. These people need jobs, Mr. President!”~House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)
“I am shocked and appalled how this president wishes to give my constituents jobs and improved infrastructure with his proposed bridge plan. How will my constituents get to work, Mr. President? ?” ~ Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KT)
” I am outraged at this president for wanting to cut payroll taxes. Is China supposed to pay for this?” ~ Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
” This President has to talk during the football game on my teevee makes me mad! Where’s his birth certificate, and how will he pay for the case of Mountain Dew I lost when I hurled it at my Teevee?” ~Bubba Joe Jim Joe, Tea party member
