Right Wing Media Attacks The Paper Clip Used To Bind The American Jobs Act
I can’t believe this isn’t an Onion story. We say that a lot on this site, but seriously…..criticizing the paper clip used to bind the bill?
O gives jobs ‘clip’ service
$447B ‘tax hike’ plan bound by chintzy fastener
WASHINGTON — President Obama’s plan to reverse the nation’s staggering jobless rate is held together with a paper clip!
‘Here it is,’ Obama said, waving a copy of his jobs plan during a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden yesterday, an enormous paper clip binding the pages together.
And not to be outdone, Steve Doocy decided to jump all over this story
DOOCY: Meanwhile, come and get your copy. President Obama’s jobs bill, hot off the presses — at Kinko’s? Hundreds of billions in tax hikes and new spending bound together with a chintzy clip. Look at that thing.
BRIAN KILMEADE (co-host): Right.
DOOCY: What’s that about?
KILMEADE: We’ve never had the word “chintzy” in the cold open before.
GRETCHEN CARLSON (co-host): We’re in a recession.
