    See, if a locomotive is going down hill at 100 mph, you can't throw it in reverse and expect it to change direction instantaneously. If you say it can change direction instantaneously you are just being dishonest.

    What is dishonest about what I have posted? So if we are gaining over 100,000 jobs a month why are there fewer employed today than there was in January 2009 and the unemployment rate at 9.1%? Talk about dishonesty? What exactly did Bush have to do with the Stimulus plan that was to get unemployment under 8% and added to the deficit?

    Why is it you have such low standards that you can justify all the Obama spending to generate such poor results?

    Yeah, why CAN'T a locomotive running down hill at 100 mph instantly start running uphill at 100 mph?

    Isn't it amazing that that locomotive running down hill actually slowed down and started turning upward in June of 2009 only to pick up steam heading downhill again in 2011? That is the Obama legacy and why his approval ratings are dropping. People are waking up to the empty suit they put in the WH and the failed promises made by that incompetent community agitator. Never in recent history has the economic results been this bad two years after the end of a recession. I am still waiting on answers to various question with today's being how can we create jobs at 100,000 per month and still have a net job loss and fewer people employed today than when he took office?

    This just goes to show that you buy the leftwing rhetoric and never verify it. Obama lies being perpetuated by you destroy your credibility as he alreayd has none.

    No, it's not really incredible that the locomotive stalled. It was being fueled in large part by stimulus which can't be renewed because SOMEONE determined that fuel doesn't really work.

    And the analogy doesn't work here, but it's also the case that our economy is affected by other economies around the world. Not much Obama can do about that.

    I doubt that your do-nothing solution would have achieved better results.

    Yep, it was a bad situation for sure.

    Now we're gaining over 100,000 jobs a month.
    No where near enough to actually bring down unemployment rates. And let's look at the lie behind this statement. Many experts have said for sometime now that in order to pull out of this negative employment outlook we would have needed to have jobs increase by some 150K to 200K per month at the beginning of Obama's term, not to mention that now if Obama is to get unemployment down to anywhere near 8% next year he now needs claims to drop, and creation of jobs to rise to over 300K per month right now.

    You are actually unknowingly making the point that Obama has not only failed at that, but continues to fail daily. Unemployment claims continue to hover at 400K per week, and jobs numbers recently have been as low as a paltry 18K.... That my friend is the morass of failure. And Obama will be lucky not to get defeated in a landslide in '12 should he stay on his predictable course of manipulating numbers, and spinning the results of his failed policies as anything but his fault.

    We started with GDP SHRINKING at a rate of 6% per year. Now GDP is growing.
    We see GDP numbers being adjusted on a regular basis these days, so I don't trust the manipulated spin on them anymore.

    See, if a locomotive is going down hill at 100 mph, you can't throw it in reverse and expect it to change direction instantaneously. If you say it can change direction instantaneously you are just being dishonest.
    I really hope that libs continue to come up with absurd analogies like this one here. See, although you can not throw that train in reverse and re climb the hill in a hurry, you certainly can't climb that hill if your planned destination is the bottom of the hill to begin with.

    LOL Con....your rhetoric might make a point if your own baggage of idolizing an absolute failure didn't stand in the way.

    So the stimulus did what it was supposed to do, keep unemployment at 8% or below? Why is there such a disconnect between what you believe and the 40% job approval rating along with the net job losses from this Administration? Please explain why the labor force has dropped since Obama took office

    2009 154185 154424 154100 154453 154805 154754 154457 154362 153940 154022 153795 153172

    2011 153186 153246 153406 153421 153693 153421 153228

    Please explain where there are more people unemployed today than when Obama took office

    2009 11919 12714 13310 13816 14518 14721 14534 14993 15159 15612 15340 15267

    2011 13863 13673 13542 13747 13914 14087 13931

    Explain to me why with increasing employment by 100,000 per month there are fewer people employed today than when Obama took office?

    142221 141687 140854 140902 140438 140038 139817 139433 138768 138242 138381 137792

    139323 139573 139864 139674 139779 139334 139296


    Then is there some reason that you continue to buy the lies from this Administration?

    I assure you that I do not idolize Obama at all but I do feel sorry for those that do. Putting your faith in an empty suit and incompetent community agitator doesn't do much for anyone's credibility. Since Adam won't respond, maybe you will. Explain how we are creating 100,000 jobs per month and still have fewer people employed today than when Obama took office and why with a growing population the labor force is decreasing?
