    Obama says alot of things that are retarded.

    Wait till tomorrow, when he finally explains his speech in Germany on how cars in Boston are causing the ice caps to melt. Obama, you can count on him to say the wrong things !

    Obama's about to go on another spending spree (since the first one did nothing), which scares the bejeezus out of me.
    Obama should really try talking to other economists besides just the outdated Keynesians (aka monetarists). It's like the blind leading the blind.

    Is it just me, or will those 600,000 jobs make up for about one month's worth of job losses since Novermber 2008?

    Isn't this then kinda like bragging about cutting $100M from federal spending?

    It's exactly like that. But he's only talking to the ones who don't pay attention.

    He's cornering himself. 2010 can't get here fast enough, and I hope Americans wake up like they did in 1994.

    Doesnt getting a whole 600k jobs out of the huge amounts of money spent on 'stimulus' prove that the 'stimilus' is a failure?

    But its getting better, only 345,000 were lost last month, compared to what the "experts" claimed.....lol.

    Ever noticed how the experts are never right? Hey, is it me, or does the term "expert", mean you know what your talking about???? But they are always "surprised" at the numbers that come out month to month.

    Yes... "about half of the monthly average for the last 6 monthts".

    That means the losses for the last 6 months average almost 700k each.

    I wonder if we could turn back the clock, erase Bush's stimulus and every ounce of stimulus from Obama since, where we'd be right now.

    Dow might be at 11,000. GM would have filed banko anyway. AIG, Fannie, Freddie, BofA, etc. We might be in the exact same situation as now, with less debt, and a vanishing recession.

    Books will be written one day on this question alone.

    Except for one thing: revisionist history. FDR is glorified as ending the depression and Hoover is regarded as a rugged individualist. Both are bold-faced lies. History will praise the liberal who did the most.

    History is being erased right before our eyes. It's a very scary thought.

    "the economists"? Which ones? Are you asserting that all economists have the same views and echo the same words? Do you not realize that "the economists" all disagree with each other on pretty much everything?
