If Republicans had any desire at all to create jobs, they’d want to present their ideas to the American people. The fact that there won’t be a response to the President’s jobs speech tells you everything you need to know about the GOP-Teaparty’s plans going into 2012 — hoping and working for disaster to make Obama a one-term president.
“Republicans are, and have been, entirely focused on job creation,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said. “Every Member of Congress, and – more importantly – the American people, will provide a reaction to the president’s address. We trust in the good judgment of the American people, and the president’s proposals will rise or fall on their own merits.” — No formal Republican response planned after Obama’s jobs address | The Hill
