Semi-Retired President Uses Weekly Address To Deal With Ex-Im Bank


Seriously, I just can’t understand why anyone would call him tone deaf (video here)

(White House) One place to start is by supporting something called the U.S. Export-Import Bank. Its sole mission is to create American jobs. That’s it. It helps many American entrepreneurs take that next step and take their small business global. But next month, its charter will expire — unless Members of Congress do their job and reauthorize it.

Now, past Congresses have done this 16 times, always with support from both parties. Republican and Democratic Presidents have supported the bank, too. This time around shouldn’t be any different. Because the bank works. It’s independent. It pays for itself. But if Congress fails to act, thousands of businesses, large and small, that sell their products abroad will take a completely unnecessary hit.

Huh. Now that’s interesting

(The Blaze) It’s a near-total reversal of what he said on the campaign trail six years ago.

As the: Washington Free Beacon noted: earlier this month, in 2008 then-Sen. Obama called Ex-Im “little more than a fund for corporate welfare.”

Of course, now that many conservative groups and pundits and legislators are calling for the ending of the Ex-IM Bank, Obama is for it. He sees an opportunity to create more division. And, since nothing else of importance is happening in the world, hey, why not discuss this subject? I really just don’t get why anyone would call him tone deaf.
