    The credit downgrade was done by the same outfit (S&P) that should be held responsible for the financial meltdown. Where in the so called liberal media see that pointed out?

    Unemployment

    Suggest that regulations affect business in Oregon more than low taxes

    The main difference between liberal and conservative media critics is that the latter would prefer that journalism just didnít exist. Thatís why conservative media criticism is less concerned with making reporting better than it is with making sure reporters don't ask big business pesky questions.

    Donít believe me? Take a look at Dan Gainorís piece at FoxNews.com, in which Gainor goes after liberal billionaire George Soros and the ďwidespread influence the controversial billionaire has on the mainstream media.Ē

    Riiight ... and that's Obama's fault for inheriting an economy with -9% GDP, 22 million underemployed, 14% unemployment rate, a $1.2 trillion deficit, 11 trillion in debt, a housing crisis, a mortgage crisis, a credit crisis, a stock market in free fall, and a monster recession which lost 8 million jobs and over 5% in GDP.

    Fox News:

    Obama approval rating: 42%
    Congress approval rating: 10%*

    * = all-time record low

    it'd be like the prodigious prof posting a link from breitbart

    OCPP's Core Principals:

    Stand with the poor. We search for solutions that benefit all Oregonians, but always with a special focus on the interests of the low-income.

    Economic justice. We believe in the equitable distribution of the economy's benefits.

    Good government works. We believe that government plays a necessary and positive role, and we are vigilant and critical in pursuit of improved effectiveness and efficiency.
    About OCPP - Oregon Center for Public Policy

    more power to you, of course

    Since Congressional elections are local and the Presidential elections are national, doubt that a 42% approval rating will get it done. The best news for business is "Barack, your fired!"
