    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    You are doing your best to make this thread about me but the thread is about Obama. Is this what you elected Obama to do 2 3/4 years after taking office?

    Obama economic results in 2011,
    .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011(bea.gov)
    25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011(bls.gov)
    2.6 million fewer jobs(bls.gov)
    4.2 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years(U.S. Treasury Site)
    Downgrade of the U.S. credit rating(S&P)
    Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.97 (The United States Misery Index By Year)
    38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings(Gallup)

    2008 Q2: 1.3%

    Re: Republicans block Obama jobs bill

    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

The only ones that igonre the Obama results are liberals like you who want to make it an intellectual discussion, there is no intellectual way to interpret the Obama results positively and you have yet to try
    Wrong, the correct answer was 2005.

    2010 numbers were reported in 2005 numbers as well and that is the point which of course you ignored. How is 2011 numbers looking vs. 2010? Is this why Obama was hired?

If those tax cuts spur job growth we should have seen an increase in jobs during the Bush Administration, but instead we saw a massive loss."
    Did you miss the 9/11 thing that put a great strain on the economy? We lost fewer jobs than were expected after such a terrible blow to our economy and then we had the housing implosion.

    We have a lot of house builders out of work along with all of the material suppliers. Barry/Obama knows that those jobs can't come back until the rest of the economy is allowed to grow. Hiring union members for government employment isn't the answer.

    Government employees create nothing and the more government regulators we hire the less the rest of us will be able to create.
    Producers create wealth and the government wants to spend our wealth on those who create red tape.

    Would love to debate Bush and Reagan with you but this thread is about Obama. You sure you aren't Sheik with a new alias? Keep diverting and ignoring the question, is this what you expected when you voted for Obama?
