Of course liberals think that only the government can create jobs. It hasn't worked for the 23 million unemployed or underemployed.
Economists say the republican bill won't create jobs.

there can be no bipartisanship with Obama in office as America is at a crossroads. Choosing the socialist path is not a viable option. this is not business as usual in american government. bipartisanship will return only if Obama is sent packing in November.

Gee, if there was so much compromise why did every republican in the house vote against it and only one republican, who was bought out, vote for it.

Obama can't get anything done because he does not have super majorities in the house and senate. If he is re-elected he won't even have a majority in the house and maybe not in the senate. So what makes anyone think he will be able to get anything done in his second term. If Romney wins, he would most likely have majorities in both houses so plenty will get done.

Liberal economists say that. They are the same ones that said unemployment would be 5.4% if stimulus was passed. It is time to go into a different direction. The one that worked for Reagan.

In addition,most of the GOP senators will be from red states. They will be under no obligation to negotiate with what is almost sure to be a very unpopular potus. If the GOP regains the senate their will be more investigations that have been covered up by Harry Reid.
This is why the Dems are going to lose the Senate...

Eric Holder, Bernanke, Geithner, and Zero himself along with many other's need to be held accountable for their Treasonous acts....

There's something rotten going on for sure right now with all this orchestrated Middle East crap...

Then you have the FED basically saying QE4ever!!!

It sure looks to me like SHTF soon!!!

I think that most leaners have completely forgot what a budget is so they ignore all those suggestions.

Which of the many bills are you speaking of? Are your economists those who think like Paul Krugman, or not?

If The One is sent packing in November there will be less bi-partisanship than there has been for all this time. The Democrats proved that when they refused to stop blaming the GOP for all the lack of it while Obama is in office. Nope, the Dirty One from Nevada will not change one thing even if he is the minority leader.

Stop talking about facts and get back on the leaner way of thinking. Of course, you are right but THEY can't see it because of where they get their "facts".
