Saying it over and over and over and over again will not make people trust him.

Although you're twitted, I can guarantee that NOBODY is extremely strong wording, making your premise false.

Of course. I am sure that if you asked everyone in the United States, nearly all left wing liberals would support Obama's bill. However, for those in the government, democrats included, they realize that it is just another waste of $500 billion and there will be little, if any, support for the bill on either side of the aisle.

Obama's "job bill" was just a very cynical political ploy designed not to create jobs, but a final attempt to help Obama get re-elected. Along with his failed policies, Obama will be given the boot in 2012, as this "last ditch" political effort fell on its face, like everything else Obama has done.

The nation is tired of repeated failure and a president who is unable to change course, despite that failure. Obama may have had a chance if he had changed his strategy from "stimulus", which has failed, to cutting corporate taxes, reducing regulation, and repatriating overseas US funds. This, however, would require Obama to change everything he believes in, and therefore did not, and will not, happen.

The only thing that remains is finding out who is the republican nominee and thus the next president. The senate will be lost by the democrats as well, so the next president will have a couple years of being able to present and push an agenda with little opposition, just like Obama did. Hopefully, he will not blow it like Obama did.

Are you kidding? That's it? I was expecting some facts, figures, polls -- something, but instead just an unfounded assertion, eh?

His own party in Congress has come out publically against it. When Obama lost his own party who has control of the Senate his bill became destined for the incinerator.

A significant compenent of his bill, the building of a nationwide wireless network paid for by the taxpayer, is caught up in this LightSquared scandal (you know, the one wehre the OMB tried to get a 4-star General to change his testimony to favor LightSquared who's major investor is another Obama donor/bundler ). This bill of donor paybacks has no chance despite the clinging of Reid to his master's leg.

The bill if passed will lead to job growth seeing first hand at the I-85 Yadkin River bridge crossing in NC. I for one want it to pass and will tell my Repub. reps. that they need to get it passed. Stop messing with the economy to forward a failed concept.

Time is telling what obama is and what is going on in the WH! Ha Sad that there is not acknowledgement from the liberals that their own party for the most part is against this and they cannot see it for what it is and continue to blame the GOP. Forget it people are on to him and time is telling more and more he is an a dangerous idiot!
