    Right, shovel ready jobs were supposed to take care of that. Of course you ignored my post which is normal for you.

    Yes, and we continue to spend $700 + billion a year on the military industrial complex, almost more than the rest of the world COMBINED, while we try to figure how many more of the poor and seniors we can throw to the street so we can increase the tax cuts for the rich who already own more of the wealth than at any time since the Great Depression.

    We've really got it going on, don't we? Perhaps we should invade and occupy more countries to force them to live under our type of government!

    You are correct, there was no credit available during that period, its pretty tough to run a business with credit.

    its not designed to. the only jobs Obama is trying to save with hiking taxes on the rich are his and his dem buddies in congress who can use tax hikes to convince the weakminded that this hike justifies more vote buying spending

    Just think how great the unemployment rate will be when you get another million or so discouraged workers aren't counted as unemployed? Guess it doesn't bother you and other liberals whose ideology trumps reality.

    And that was after Bush lost 4 million jobs before the 4 million lost in the first 6 months of 2009. The economy was in free fall. And then ...

    Just goes to show what leadership will do to a private sector economy. In addition Reagan added 16.8 million jobs.
