Might not be 15.00 per hour but you can find two 8.00 per hour jobs by morning!

Dominos Pizza is hiring!!!

Damn Obama, where is all those 5 million new jobs anyway!
You're wrong here. Obama said his stimulus would create OR SAVE jobs. Thus, if there are 5 million people employed in the country by the end of his term, he ca say he saved 5 million jobs. Without his stimulus, EVERYONE in America would be unemployed.

I happen to disagree. Its the governments responsibility to to enact economic policy to ensure a healthy economy.

Your statement is clearly incorrect.
My statement is there are not enough jobs.. Please quote me accurately. Bushs performance on job creation was dismal throughout his two terms, and now we are paying for it literally.

Lamexican never claimed there are no jobs. He said there aren't enough jobs.

It is the governments fault the economy is in the shape it is in - if the government had stayed out of it - things would be fine
