    The misery index and the unemployment numbers are exogenous to the realm of what the President can affect in the absence of massive increases in government spending in the form of infrastructure stimulus. The federal budget has increased by about 28% since 2008; not something you can complain about (it should have increased by 38%!).
    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.

    additional employees is just another expense for corporations, which means less money for investment dividends.
    So your argument for higher stock market and greater profits didn't work so now it is try something else like corporations don't want to hire people? What you and all liberals do is ignore that 80% of all hiring is done by small businesses and there is no incentive for those businesses to hire due to the rapidly rising costs of employment. Keep building that large corporation strawman while ignoring the foundation upon which our economy was built, small businesses

    No, he is "your" President as "your" means you voted for him. I didn't and won't. You see, I understand resumes and apparently you don't but more importantly I judge results which again you don't. If you generated the results Obama has generated you would be fired and if any Republican had generated those results you would call for their firing.

    if small-businesses hire all the new workers, then lets give them a tax-credit to hire new employees and pay for it with a tax-hike on millionaires.

    Only since Obama became president.

    Evidence of that lies in the fact that at this point in every presidency dating back to Truman every Democrat except for Obama has seen unemployment drop whereas every since Republican president had seen unemployment rise ...



    Nixon +2.6 +76%
    Eisenhower +1.3 +45%
    Bush +1.6 +38%
    Ford* +2.0 +36%
    GHW Bush +1.6 +30%
    Reagan +1.0 +13%
    Obama +0.8 +10%
    Kennedy -1.2 -14%
    Carter -1.6 -21%
    Clinton -1.7 -23%
    Johnson -2.0 -35%
    * = Ford was in office 29 months

    Obama is the first Democrat president to have unemployment rise during his first 34 months (of course, that's directly related to Bush' Great Recession) and now, for the first time in their lives, Conservatives complain about unemployment at this point in a presidency.

    no, if Obama was a corporate CEO he would keep his inflated salary and get a MASSIVE Christmas bonus, as per his contract.

    Better check your history, Clinton lost the Congress in 1994 and much of the Clinton tax increases were repealed.
