    Obama left that little detail out of his election campaign speeches.
    That's fine, Ray. But do you actually believe that those tax cuts made jobs? I mean look at the economy even during the Bush years; it sucked.

    With nearly 50 million people on food stamps, and poverty increasing, why disband the Jobs Council, and why haven't they met?

    They are too busy counting the money they made from working hard all year!
    Their only relaxation comes once a year at the huge Arendish Fair, which was held last September. I understand a lot of horse-trading took place

Those job council guys did not like Obama's PPACA mandates, goofy EPA regulations and union backing nonsense anyway.

    Obama is now "laser focused" on making the repubicants look bad, so he will put forth as much loony lefty stuff as possible, forcing the repubicants to say stupid stuff. The republicants should simply shut up and let the demorats hang themselves by attempting to pass the Obama nonsense in the Senate since 1/3 of those seats are up for election next year.

    The republicants are tripping all over themselves trying be "bipartisan" on immigration reform (amnesty) while stupidly thinking that the hispanic voters will switch over to them if they play nice. As usual the amnesty (called guest worker permits or path to citizenship) will be right now and any border security additions and "absolute" workplace enforcement for hiring only "legal" workers will be "phased in" (i.e. will never actually happen).
    Agreed, and this column from the WSJ offers some insight to the rationale behind the Dem thinking:

    Back in 1965, when American politics watched the emergence of the New Left movement—rebranded today as "progressives"—a famous movement philosopher said the political left should be "liberated" from tolerating the opinions of the opposition:"Liberating tolerance would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left."

    That efficient strategy was the work of Herbert Marcuse, the political theorist whose ideas are generally credited with creating the basis for campus speech codes. Marcuse said, "Certain things cannot be said, certain ideas cannot be expressed, certain policies cannot be proposed." Marcuse created political correctness.

    But let's talk about Marcuse in the here and now. He also proposed the withdrawal of toleration "from groups and movements . . . which oppose the extension of public services, social security, medical care, etc."
    Can you see this tactic at work even on this forum, attempting to delegitimize opposing viewpoints?
    "We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress & the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."

    The jobs council wasn't useful because the GOP wont implement anything they recommend. (because the GOP doesn't want job creation under Obama)
