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.
    Obama had a filibuster proof Congress for almost a year of his term something you never acknowledge. GW Bush generated those terrible economic numbers with Democrats controlling the entire Congress yet Democrats were helpless to prevent those numbers? Now Obama isn't responsible for the results generated 2 1/2 years after taking office?

    So you have no problem with sending jobs to China and having the CEO of the company head of Obama's jobs' committee? Thank you for another coherent position

    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.
    LOL! How long did the world listen to you people insist, DEMAND, that the nation understand that Bush could be faulted for the economy? We heard it and heard it during the Bush years.

    Why would you even ask me that?

    If I told you that if the situation were reversed I'd have the same opinion, would you believe me? Of course not.

    We've explained the reason for the 2011 results. You just don't like the answer. Republican fiscal policy is what's been enacted or kept in place, that makes this economy the results of those fiscal policies.

    Do Republicans ever take responsibilities for their policies?

    No, I have no problem with a U.S. company sending jobs to China if it's necessary to expand it's market share in China. Why would I object to that? If the company refuses to compete internationally it will fail and that will not do any favors to the tens of thousands of people the company employs in the states. The alternative for China to fill that demand itself, or perhaps for a German company like Siemens to fill the demand.

    The person I want advising Obama on jobs is a person who understands these dynamics. What I don't want is someone who doesn't understand the jobs market and who will dogmatically repeat some meaningless talking point about offshoring jobs -- as if that will improve the situation.

    Of course I have acknolwedged the Senate majority many times. As I said then, having a 60 seat super majority is only beneficial if you can muster 100% of the 60 seats for every measure you favor, which isn't realistic -- at least on the Democratic side, where there is a wide range of philosophies, from far left to moderate conservative. Come to think of it, in recent days the Republican House leader had a hell of a hard time even mustering the support of a majority of his own members -- let alone 100% of them.

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.

    I love it how you partisans settle for the lowest political common denominator. You assume that anyone who doesn't like the dumbasses, **** ups, clowns, dirt bags, religious fanatics and fascists who represent the GOP stable of candidates is a Democrat or a liberal. In making that assumption you then compare everyone to Obama. You wrongfully assume that everyone who doesn't like piss poor candidates that the GOP is stumbling over is happy with Obama; will defend Obama; will vote for Obama. You are wrong. How about we don't like any of them? How about instead of defending unworthy people we insist something better?

    Perry isn't going to win a presidential election and for a lot of reasons. He also sleeps with religious dominionists. You may think dominionists are just peachy, but the vast majority of Americans view them as religious fanatics. We don't want them in government. Period.

    I for one would like Obama to be primaried, but that's not going to happen because the Democrats don't have enough balls to forward a real candidate.

    And so here we are with pure crap from the GOP, a non-leader in the White House and Democrats without balls to proffer a worthy alternative to Obama. It's been dumbed down to unacceptable, but you accept it! A lot of us don't.

    Tell you what Conservative if someone ****s in your left hand and someone ****s in your right hand are you going to want to argue over which **** you like better? That's what you are doing. That is what the political system is doing to America. And you are arguing over the merits of the **** in your right hand as if it is somehow better than the **** in your left hand! I find that absolutely amazing. But the system is winning as long as sheeple accept **** to the point that they begin liking one handful of **** better than the other handful. How about more and more of us don't want anyone ****ting in our hands? Can you comprehend that? Just because many of us think Perry is a charlatan, and Palin and Bachman are seriously intellectually limited doesn't mean we think Obama is great. Not everyone is going to defend the other handful of ****.

    Rick Perry is merely being boosted by that new candidate smell. Does anyone remember how big Fred Thompson jumping into the race was in 2007? Then people started to actually hear him talk.

    Here's an interesting statistic about Perry's "Texas Miracle":

    Comparing Rick Perry and Fred Thompson doesn't really work.
