Time after time since 2009, people have told the President, via polls, that jobs is the Number One priority and yet he's deaf to creating incentives that would make companies do more hiring. Perhaps if the money spent on illegal immigrants was used to put some blue collar workers back to work...you'll notice one of the black protesters said Bill Clinton was the real black President and he was the one, at the pushing of the GOP Congress, who signed the welfare reform bill that had a work aspect to it. Obama has gutted Welfare work requirements.

Maybe they should have thought about what a fraud obama was before they all voted for him because he was black ! This is what you get when you vote with your heart instead of your head.

The thing is, he does what he wants to do, not what needs to be done. He should have focused his entire first term on fixing the economy, but poured our resources into overhauling healthcare and we're still limping along with high unemployment, underemployment, stock market in a huge bubble and falling wages. Income inequality is worse under Obama than it was under Bush.

Today we have problems all over the country that still need to be fixed, and he's putting illegal immigrants on buses and shipping them all over the country. It shows where his priorities lie when he would rather help non-Americans enter this country illegally rather than help, you know, actual Americans.

Personally? He's standing by the bus telling them where to sit?

The economy is way over what it was when Obama took office. Part of that is due to health care reform because healthcare costs were dragging the economy down. They aren't separate things but a package. Getting out of the wars is part of the economy. Immigration is part of the economy. Housing, imports (down), exports (up), jobs, etc....all part of the economy.

All of which he's handled pretty well considering the GOP has been doing everything to block him.

Why would people think that Obama was going to do all those wonderful things?
Hmm maybe because he made a mother lode of promises he knew he couldn't keep. Anyone who voted for such an obvious liar deserves the results.

When Harry Reid sits on everything the GOP House proposes, who is blocking who?

Blame the voters for believing the horsecrap Obama talked about during both his campaigns.
