    Why are you so afraid to answer a "yes" or "no" question? Do you blame Obama for all jobs lost starting from February 1st, 2009?

    Number of people employed in August 2011: 140,335,000

    140,335,000{now} - 140,105,000{then} = + 230,000

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    No, I blame Obama for the economic results of 2010 and 2011 as it was his economic policy that generated those results. Discouraged workers are his responsibility and the loss in consumer and business confidence is his responsibility. This is the Obama economy and the results are a disaster

    Most people either forget or just don't mention that credit was for the most part unavailable during Obama's first year which killed economic activity. This wasn't his fault, it was caused by the severe recession.

    Then why do you claim Obama's results gave us 3 million additionally underemployed since you have to start counting from February 1st, 2009, to reach? Seems to me you are attributing job loses to him that even you don't believe belong to him.

    Are the 2011 results his fault? Seems that the credit problem was also ignored during the 2008 recessiion but Bush was still responsible for the results. Good leaders accept responsibility for what they inherited and solve the problem. Obama never accepts responsibility for anything.

    Is Obama responsible for the 2011 results or do you want to blame someone else for those as well, probably Bush?
