    Conservatives generally argue that government is too big, and thus a lower public job total should make conservatives happy. It would be a bit hypocritical to argue that government should be smaller, and then use smaller government as a cudgel to beat Obama. Wouldn't it?

    But then again, perhaps the only metric that should be considered when evaluating a presidents impact upon jobs is the growth of government jobs, since the president has very little impact on whether or not someone in the private sector hires someone or not.

    But the policies that the President and Congress pass allows companies to operate with more or less clarity. With more clarity of their future they can spend more money on jobs.

    When I am talking clarity, I am thinking specifically of the recent Health Care Act. Businesses were unsure how this would effect their bottom line, and some businesses stated that this triggered a hiring freeze until they knew what was coming down the pike.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    Not really true. The president has more direct control over federal jobs, but his policies certainly influence private hiring/firing.

    Govt is too big, wonder how many wage slaves here believe their employer is making too much and paying too little in taxes? You claim to be an independent contractor yet you seem to support bigger govt. and that govt. providing solutions for everyone else. How about solutions for you? Can't you see Conservatives are fighting for your right to make as much money as you can? Can't you see that Conservatives have no problem with you joining the upper class? Can you not see that the Govt. isn't the answer to all the social problems in this country? Maybe this will help you understand but doubt it

    This President is showing his true colors just like those supporting him. His budget says it all and promote the continued movement towards the failed European socialist model that has set Europe on fire. Keep supporting this guy and pay the price later or don't you care?

    What’s not to like about the budget sent to Congress? $4 trillion in deficit savings over the next ten years, cuts in the budget, wars winding down.Damn…your hard to please; one side of you mouth says one thing while the other sides saying something else.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Keep buying the rhetoric just like a cow being led to slaughter. Total ignorance of reality. There are no budget cuts just games. The Iraq War is over and those savings are already taking place, in the Obama budget they are counted twice. Medicare cuts are shifted to Obamacare costs. There are no cuts but instead another 1.3 trillion added to the deb. Stop playing your silly ass game and think for a change.
