And you want to borrow and spend trillions more so you can say "see we created a thousand jobs.
    Austerity is never the way out of a recession. Spend money, but spend it on things that are an investment in your country. Giving huge tax breaks will never cure an economy. In fact, when the Great Depression hit the tax rate was at 24%

    Of course not, but it wasn't Bush's fault either. That economic collapse was decades in the making.

    Now back to the point, the current administratin is 1,079m jobs behind...where are all these '4.5 million jobs created'? The numbers do not reflect them...

    Don't Be Fooled, The Obama Unemployment Rate Is 11% - Forbes

    If you bring U3 back up to the participation rate of when he took office U3 unemployment is 11% and if you do the same thing to U6 it is over 16%

    Is that what Obama did, in your opinion anyway. Please correct me if I'm wrong, like telling me he spent money on stupid stuff and you would have spent it on __________

    Last I remember he campaigned to fix the problem, he did not, and now he wants another shot of doing it all over again. No thanks.

    Fantastic.

    Now that we've got that out of you.

    Do you really think it can be solved in just a couple of years?

    This meltdown was much more severe than most people realize, the fact there's any jobs being created at all is nothing short of a miracle, maybe because of Obamas policies... maybe not.

    But I can garauntee you, bigger tax cuts for the wealthy and de-regulation are not gonna help anything.
