Jobless claims again rose. So Obama is going to hold another conference to he can .....talk again. Probably going to be the usual its someone else's fault nonsense.
I guess 0bama needs to pound his fist and demand even more tax increases, and yell at the same people whose taxes he wants to raise to simply hire more employees, yup, that will help create more jobs.

I'd like those of you who think like 0bama, to explain how raising taxes and giving the government even more money to blow, will help the economy, or create jobs.

Where are the "significant" results from those accomplishments? Everything that should be down is up, and everything that should be up is down.

You mean two years. Plus he still has control of the Senate. What has he done with the significant leverage that gives him?

Well, those build bridges and schools American Jobs Act is still in congress. Do you think that the people dont see that this is needed? The difference between a Repub. and a Dem. is that one party thinks that by the magic of the free market these will be fixed and the other wants to get the jobs done with a public private partnership. Where a groupof people that dont want to pay for anything but still beifit from those structures.

The govt. is cutting employees. The problem is if you check that the majority of them are the people we need to perform services (Teachers,police, office staff). The real cuts should be done at the top. They should be looking to cut Mgr. personal and take advantage of the computer equip. they all have.

My ADD kicked into high gear seven minutes into his lecture. If he held his news conference later in the day, we could have played the "Pass the Bill" drinking game.

obama has accomplished noting since he walked into office. He is working hard to destroy the country, but 70 % of the people now know he is corrupt and a liar, so his future is zero...
