And it's REALLY hard to ignore the completely mendacious attempts to pawn this disaster off on a powerless Democratic Congress that stepped in after the die was cast. That last part is particularly laughable.
    More excuses! Even after saying George Bush was responsible for every bad thing that has happened to the United States during his administration, you still cannot accept responsibility for what the Democrats have done, or haven't done, since then.

    Despite all the campaign promises made, Barrack Obama and his administration have demonstrated that Liberals simply cannot be trusted to run an economy and should never be taken seriously anywhere. It's time to put adults in charge or the downward spiral will be unstoppable.

    Obama has done about as much as he can do, given the Republicans' absolute unwillingness to compromise. If the Republicans have any better ideas I have yet to hear them. They ran in '10 on the platform of JOBS JOBS JOBS and they haven't proposed a single f*cking thing that wouldn't actually make the jobs picture worse if implemented. I wish I could say that I'm astonished by the degree of incompetence and irresponsibility they've exhibited, but I'm pretty numb to it after the last 10 years.

    As Sheik would say, don't you ever get tired of lying and looking foolish. You just don't pay any attention to non partisan news. I have been called a partisan hack but you take the cake.

    I see where they mention the Republican talking point. Any chance you have any information about these supposed job creating measures?

    Why don't you ask Harry Reid to put the bills out there and debate them instead of claiming that no bills passed the House. You can get those bills from the Congressional Record but of course you prefer the partisan talking points.

    Okay, I searched for it myself because I needed a laugh.

    Job creating measure No. 1? Address the crucial insecticide, fungicide and rodenticide problem!!
    1) H.R. 872óReducing Regulatory Burdens Act: The bill would amend the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) to clarify that the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or a state may not require a permit under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act for the application of pesticides regulated under FIFRA. By removing duplicative requirements, the bill would reduce overlapping and unnecessary regulation on pesticides that are already regulated, thereby reducing costs to both farmers and small business owners.

    A quick revue of the other massive job creating measures reveals that the vast majority of them are designed to kiss the a$$ of the oil and coal industries, and of course to reduce environmental protection in a myriad of ways. Wow. Really. Just wow!!

    So you now care where jobs are created? Maybe Democrats can get Solyndra back on track and hiring again so we can add more debt

    I care THAT jobs are created, and it strains credulity to imagine that any serious job creation would result even if all 15 of the Republicans' screw-the-environment proposals were passed as written.

    And btw, the last two were bipartisan proposals that passed with the support of President Obama.
