Jimmy Kimmel Quotes From Emmy Speech

“Downton Abbey is not the kind of show I would typically watch, but it gives you the sense of what it would be like to grow up in Mitt Romney’s house” (laughter from the Hollywood audience). Downton Abbey depicts the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants after the post-Edwardian-era.

Jimmy Kimmel then asks of the Hollywood audience, “Are any of you voting for Mitt Romney?” (some whistles and applause from the audience)

“Alright, there’s 40 republicans and the rest godless, liberal homosexuals. You see, that is why Kelsey Grammer didn’t come tonight.” (Kelsey Grammer, American actor and comedian, is a Republican).

“It’s difficult being a republican in Hollywood. Being a republican in Hollywood is like being a Chick-Fil-A sandwich on the snack table at Glee.”

Was Jimmy Kimmel Aware

We respect Jimmy Kimmel’s openness about Hollywood’s bias towards republicans. Mr. Kimmel even openly jokes about how Hollywood believes republicans view liberals, as “godless, liberal homosexuals.” As absurd as this stereotype is, Hollywood believes it.

Perhaps, Mr. Kimmel, you can draw a joke from the list that Americans, including republicans and democrats, really worry about. Some records under President Obama. Yes, Obama inherited an economy in recession. His policies, however, have only made things worse. He has had almost four years to improve the economy, two years of which the Democrats had complete control of Congress and the presidency.
1. $18,000 is the bill that President Obama has handed each and every American. (see notes below)
2. $98,000 is the bill President Obama has handed each and every American taxpayer. (see notes below)
3. $2.6 MILLION is the cost to create each job during President Obama’s tenure. (see notes below)
4. Average U.S. family’s wealth plunged 40% in the recession. (source)
5. Long-term unemployment – 45.9% of total: highest since 1930s (source).
6. Employment – 58.1% of population working: lowest since 1983. (source)
7. Slowest job growth after a severe recession since World War II. (source)
8. Teenage unemployment 24% (Aug 2012) verses 21.4% when President Obama took office (source).
9. 81 million Americans were not in the labor force when Obama took office; 88 million Americans (Aug 2012) are now not in the labor force and are not counted in the official unemployment rate (source).
10. U.S. sovereign debt downgrade: first-time in American history (source).
11. Federal spending – 25% of GDP: highest since World War II (source).
12. Budget deficit – 10% GDP – highest since World War II (source).
13. Raised the debt ceiling to $16.2 trillion – highest in history and in the world (source).
14. President Obama’s proposed budgets spend your child into more debt than all the previous 43 U.S. presidents COMBINED.
15. President Obama will have spent 5.6 trillion dollars in 4 years – that is more money than any one has ever spent in history (source).
16. From 2007 – 2011, the number of people receiving food stamps has increased 135% to 47 million people – the highest in American history. (source)
17. Home ownership rate – 59.7%: lowest since 1965 (source).
18. Percentage of taxpayers paying no federal income tax 47% (2011) (source).
19. As of June, the African-American unemployment rate is a staggering 14.4% (was 11.9% Dec 2008), with Latinos and Hispanics having an unemployment rate of about 11.0% (was 9.2% Dec 2008), while the unemployment rate for whites is 7.4% (was 6.6% Dec 2008). (source)
20. Raising taxes on the “rich” will do little to pay our bills. You would have to raise taxes on the rich 142% – yes that’s over 100% – just to pay for one year’s deficits. (source)

Notes
*President Obama raised the debt $5.6 trillion ($16.2 trillion debt limit – $10.6 debt the day he took office). There are 314 million Americans. $5.6 Trillion divided by 314 million Americans = $17,834.40.
**President Obama increased America’s debt $5.6 trillion ($16.2 trillion debt limit – $10.6 debt the day he took office). There are 114 million American tax-filers; half pay federal income tax. $5.6 Trillion divided by 57 million Americans = $98,245.61.
***January 2009 there were 140,436,000 employed Americans; August 2012 there were 142,558,000 Americans employed. So there was a creation of 2,122,000 jobs divided by $5.6 trillion that Obama has spent = $2.6 million.
