    but....but.....but Obama was hired to play the hand he was dealt and failed. His lack of leadership skills and the ability to even propose a pro growth economic policy is evidence that you voted for someone incompetent and lacking the experience for the job he was hired to do.

    We could be China.

    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.

    now i ask again

    how many permanant jobs will the keystone pipeline create? last i heard it was less then 1,000.

    and what regulations, labor or enviromental, do you oppose inflicting on coal companys.
    Oh, yeah, don't forget that Republicans want to starve kids and kill seniors too in addition to polluting the air. You buy the liberal spin and ignore the liberal results. Let the people of W. Va. decide on their coal producing plants and the people of Nebraska decide if they want the Keystone pipeline. Why should a bureaucrat in D.C. do that?

    We will never know how many the Keystone Pipeline will create but if it is one it is one more than has been created now.

    Government controls their economy. That's what you want. Go China!

    Spent 35 years in the business world working in the U.S. economy. What is your experience?

    We asked the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food and Nutrition service for month-by-month figures going back to January 2001. And they show that under President George W. Bush the number of recipients rose by nearly 14.7 million. Nothing before comes close to that.
    And under Obama, the increase so far has been 14.2 million. To be exact, the program has so far grown by 444,574 fewer recipients during Obama's time in office than during Bush's.
    It's possible that when the figures for January 2012 are available they will show that the gain under Obama has matched or exceeded the gain under Bush. But not if the short-term trend continues. The number getting food stamps declined by 43,528 in October. And the economy has improved since then.
    Update, Feb. 5: RevisedUSDA datareleased in February showed the downward trend continued for a second straight month in November, when the number of persons getting food stamps was 134,418 fewer than it had been at the peak.

    sorry but the states need federal permission if they want to screw up their environments. you know those pesky EPA regulations.

    and you still are not answering the questions i am asking you.

    how many pipeline jobs are projected to be created by the keystone pipeline, do you have a guess?

    and what regulations are hurting the coal mineing industry?

    Here we go again, percentage change, numbers of new recipients never about the number on the program or the fact that it is close to 50 million today. Let me know when Bush had 50 million non food stamps. Keep distorting the Bush record but Bush isn't in office now, Obama is and the results Obama has generated are the issue.

    LOL, yep, the people of Nebraska have no concerns over their environment but a bureaucrat in D.C. does. That is a brilliant argument. Why don't you ask D.C. for permission for everything you do?
