You simply haven't any idea what you are talking about. It isn't the President's job to create jobs, but it is his job to create the economic environment for the private sector to create those jobs and things like demonizing the wealth creators and Obamacare don't do that.
    According to Repblicans government doesn't create job and deficits don't matter! Just oing by conservative rules lol!

    What on earth is wrong with people like you? You get something in your head that is wrong and you keep digging the hole deeper. Stop listening to the leftwing media and actually take a civics class and economics class. Do some actual research as to the role of the govt. and by all means go to verifiable govt. information based websites like bls.gov, bea.gov, and the U.S. Treasury. I assure you that ignorance can be cured

    Do you have a quote, in context, of who said "deficits don't matter?"

    Re: Most would blame Republicans

    [QUOTE=

    I will bet money that a large number of the ****heads that blame republicans dont have a clue what the issues are. They are the same mindless twats that support Obamacare without knowing what it is they are supporting (and yes...that goes for the mindless jagoffs that blame Obama just because he is Obama).[/QUOTE]

    I blame Republicans, I don't think I'm mindless or a ****head.
    I joined this site with the sole intention of trying to understand how reasonably intelligent people are so divided on this issue of the shutdown.

    I blame them because a) repealing, defunding, or delaying the ACA do not seem like legitimate reasons to not pass a 6 week CR to keep the govt open. I believe they are desperate to stop ACA before it gets started, and they will do anything to achieve this, even if it means shutting down the govt and harming the economy.

    b) because they have the votes to pass the CR as it stands right now, but will not put it up for a vote. There are a lot of Republicans that disagree with the "hostage" strategy,

    and c) Republicans have not been shy about the fact that they wanted to shut the govt down. It was a deliberate tactic that they used, and Ted Cruz even talked about how there was not too much political fallout from the '95 shutdown, implying that it's not as risky as some might think. They wanted to it, and they're doing it, why pretend otherwise?

    If I'm missing something, I can take it, let me know. I am not an "Obamanot," and I think it's funny that some people think those who support Obama do so blindly.
    I watched GW get us into some deep ****, and I think Obama has done well with an obstructionist, pass-nothing house. It's all relative.

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry when I see posters like you. This is either an act or an incredibly bad indictment of our education system

    I think my synopsis is a lot closer to the truth than blaming the Bush collapse on Clinton while giving Reagan credit for Clinton's great economy.

Ask anyone you know that if 1.7 trillion dollars in 8 years is worse than 6.4 trillion in 5 and after the laughing stops let me know the answer?
    Lady?

    You really can't read. Can you?

    And, adding $1.7 Trillion to a debt that was under a trillion is far worse than adding 6 to one that is already at 10 or more.

    Well, I didn't give Reagan credit for Clinton's economy now, did I...

    Nor did I blame the collapse of Clinton. He was simply president at the right time. If Bush (41) was reelected, the economy wouldn't be much different then, than what Clinton had.

    Why are you making things up?
