    Obama promises more than 600,000 stimulus jobs

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the United States remains in a deep recession that will take considerable time to escape.
    Obama met at the White House with his top administration officials on Monday to hear an update on his $787 billion spending plan. Obama says he is not satisfied with progress and told his Cabinet that administration leaders need to push ahead.

    Okay... so we're in a deep hole and it's gonna take a while.

    Didn't he just say:

    BEVERLY HILLS, California (Reuters) The U.S. economy is showing signs of stabilizing after suffering the worst economic crisis in decades, President Barack Obama said on Wednesday.
    "When you look at the economy right now, I think it's safe to say we have stepped back from the brink, that there is some calm that didn't exist before," Obama said at a fund-raiser for the Democratic National Committee.
    Obama took credit for a large share of the turnaround, saying his young administration had accomplished as much or more in its first four months as any administration since Franklin Delano Roosevelt's in the 1930s.

    So a few weeks ago he was all "Look what I did for you all! LOVE ME!!!"

    Now it's "Things are bleak, we aren't doing enough..."


    Why do people trust this guy?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    He's just echoing what the economists are saying; take it up with them.

    I figured that since this thread was taking a swipe at Obama I might as well use it to take a swipe at economists.

    One wonders what happened to the promise of the creation of 3.5 Million jobs.
    As with almost every so called Democratic administration, creationism numbers decline with time, while taxation creationism rises.
    600,000 jobs seems to be quite a drop on what was originally promised.
    One must also recall (during those heady day on the campaign trail) that 3.5 Million NEW jobs were going to be created, whereas after the US electorate had had their say that particular statement became reduced to 'We shall save 3.5 Million jobs'.
    I doubt that even by creating an overly bloated administration, President Obama will be able to save let alone create that number of jobs.

    It would also appear that almost everyone of his nominees for various jobs have had to remove themselves from the scene after either Congress or the 'free' press has reminded them of various nefarious 'oversights' in their previous careers.

    Dear Leader promises 600,000 stimulus jobs.

    1.6 Million jobs have been lost since he took office.

    He keeps bailin' and flailin' and losing ground with every step.

    Memo to Dear Leader:
    STOP DIGGING THAT HOLE

    The obvious problem here is that FAR too many people think the government needs to do anything to 'fix' the econony -- as the economy will, inevitably, will do that itself.

    He said he was going to create 3 to 5 million of those... three letter words JOBS.

    He's looking to be a carbon copy of Gerhard Schroeder.
    Schroeder promised to cut unemployment in half, but doubled it.

    Gerhard Obama.

    Well, perhaps if you leave it alone and let it fix itself.

    If you nationalize healthcare......there goes a ton of jobs. If you exact a federal sales tax and raise taxes overall......there goes a ton of jobs.

    Obama's about to go on another spending spree (since the first one did nothing), which scares the bejeezus out of me.
