    Yep, three years after Obama took office it is still Bush's fault that obama had 945000 discouraged workers in December 2011 and of course is it also Bush's fault that we have a declining labor force three years after Obama took office.

    I don't know what the answer is either although I believe that any true Conservative would take a beating by the media and would have a hard time getting the message out but could be wrong.

    Blaming the media is just whining. Take personal responsibility.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yes, that is who I will vote for since no President has that kind of power and we have an economy in such a mess we need his leadership and business skills.

    Most people feel that way. 54% still blame Bush. You know? The majority who you call "stupid." Only 29% agree with you.

    And what you post doesn't even ding what I posted.

    The only reason the private sector is down since Obama became president is because of Bush's Great Recession, which lost some 4 million private sector jobs during the beginning of Obama's presidency. Since 2010, more than 3 million private sector jobs have been added.

    I don't know. Someone posted up this link the other day 2012 Election: The Candidate Match Game - USATODAY.com -- I took the test and came out tied that my ideal candidate was either Obama or Romney. What?! Maybe the Republican stance on raising taxes is, in the end, a painful/hurtful position for them. 'Course I do support national healthcare...so maybe I'm reallly a Moderate.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    The President was hired to lead and promote private sector job creation and growth, not a declining labor force and fewer private sector jobs than when he was hired. That is the Obama record and I know how much he appreciates your support because you obviously need his kind of help.

    Well he had that kind of power in Massachusetts where he passed Romneycare which covered abortions. So yes, he did keep his word and protect womens' right to choose. Stop fooling yourself into believing nonsense which is not rooted in reality.

    I have no problem at all with a state program because it is easier to change at the state level than at the national level. Healthcare is a state and local responsibility not a Federal One Size fits all program
