    No offense, but confidence was shattered by the recession that predated Obama. Did you really think it was this? "Obama administration regulations on new business rose to 3,573 final rules in 2010, up from 3,503..."? Increasing regulations by 2% really shattered the businesses community's confidence? I had no idea our entrepeneurs were such wilting violets.

    So the answer is YES, 2 1/2 years after taking office and 2 years after the end of the recession there still is a net job loss from when he took office. Thank you

    Which begs the question why you're blaming Obama for the 12 million jobs lost to underemployment during Bush's Great Recession?

    Obama takes office with 11.9 million unemployed at the end of January 2009 and today that number is 13.9 million or a 2 million increase so the answer is yes there has been a net job loss. Add in discouraged workers and you get 12.6 million unemployed at the end of January 2009 and 14.9 million today or 2.3 million increase. Yep, those results are a disaster.

    Again, are you blaming Obama for that as of February 1st, 2009?

    I can live with it, given the fact that Bush lost more jobs in the preceding four months than Obama lost in the following 30.

    Bush isn't in office and Obama has a net job loss but of course you can live with it because it doesn't affect you. Why do you care about 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans and a net job loss. You have that typical liberal compassion where you defend liberalism regardless of the results.

    I can live with it because I know that he's doing the best he can with the lousy cards that Bush dealt him, and because I know that your side would have done far worse if they'd had the opportunity to screw it up even more.
