He did it that way because otherwise, the long term projections showed that they would lead to massive deficit spending.
    businesses care about their shareholders and the opportunity for growth. Still waiting for you to explain how Obama inherited the 2011 numbers. When Bush got the tax cuts passed the Senate was controlled by the Democrats and in order to get those cuts approved had a sunset because that is what was required by Democrats. "Your" President extended them during the lame duck session of Congress that Democrats controlled. Keep trying to rewrite history

    And he extended them because the Republicans were holding 9/11 responders hostage. That's how Rethuglicans have been operating. They take something hostage and issue demands. Real stand up people.

    True Obama leadership and why Perry or Romney will beat Obama in 2012. Keep ignoring the Obama record

    General Electric is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing. In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers. This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year. but paid no taxes-the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the united States.
    So let me get this straight. President Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation (job czar). Immelt is supposed to help create jobs. I guess the President forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs.
    If this doesn't show you the total lack of leadership of this President, I don't know what does.

    LOL, nice spin. Still waiting for an answer, what would your tone be today if any Republican candidate generated the kind of results Obama has generated 2 1/2 years after taking office? Do Liberals ever take responsibility for their own actions?

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 24+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 39% JAR and well over 50% disapproval ratings.

    As we've gone over before, stimulus measures were quite successful in boosting GDP while they were in full effect. Now that the stimulus is winding down -- unsurprisingly -- GDP is coming down. The Republican solution, of course, is to engage in rapid destimulus to further drag down the economy.
    Aw yes, the stimulus created economic growth and now that the stimulus is over economic results are declining which of course is Bush's fault? The stimulus was supposed to stimulate the economy and when over the economy was to take off, it didn't and you still support this President and the results he generated. That says a lot about you

    So what's your point? GE moved some production to China because China is it's biggest growth market. Japan and Germany have moved some auto production to the States to take advantage of our auto market. Should Obama only hire bad business people to help in the jobs area?

    Jobs is my point but then again since Obama is in the WH this doesn't bother you but Bush sending jobs overseas is a travesty. When Obama said he was going to focus on jobs, did you believe he meant in China?

    I didn't say it was Bush's fault, did I? I think Obama should have gone for a bigger stimulus, but that wasn't a realistic possibility given that he needed some republican support to get what he did. We should be doing more stimulus now, but it's highly unlikely given republican opposition. Nontheless, the economy is growing and adding jobs, while it was contracting and shedding jobs when Obama took over. Apparently you prefer a collapsing economy to one that is growing slowly. Different strokes, I guess.

    Show me where I ever said a word about Bush sending jobs overseas. I'll go get a cup of coffee....
