    Nah, it was all the democratic congress's fault under Reagan, despite the fact the budgets passed where within a couple percent of the budget's Reagan submitted.

    Obama should have focused in the private sector not the public sector and we would be creating jobs today just like Reagan created.
    How do you explain the addition of private sector jobs while government jobs have been bleeding off?

    Corporate welfare in your world is actually corportions keeping more of what they earn and using that for job creation, dividends to shareholders, charitable giving, and expansion, something apparently you will never understand.

    Reagan, if running today, would be labeled a RINO.

    The creation of private sector jobs is a good thing but way too low to significantly impact the unemployment numbers. One million people left the work force last month and that is why the rate dropped. Add those million back into the unemployment number and what is the rate?

    My mistake, I thought the name Conservative was just for your political party. No I was not alive during the Reagan years, I get most of my information from literature, and documentaries, I actually watched a documentary on Reagan that aired on HBO the other day and thats where I got the information about him pinching the middle class as well as increasing the National Debt. I also read a wonderful book called the Reagan years, which talked about his record, and yes he was a great president in many ways, but he has been over hyped for what he did in the financial sector according to many of the books I've read.

    As for Govt, you ignored my comments about the mess that Bush left us in. Was Obama supposed to ignore that mess and jump straight to the private sector? If that happened you would probably be bashing him for not handling those issues first before jumping on the private sector. The same solutions you suggested is what got us in most of the mess we're in now.

    Going back to Reagan and his years, the Budget for America was not as large as it is now, so that plays a part in the growth of the national debt. Obama is far from a Horrible president. Just like Reagan is far from a horrible president. I dont think Obama is perfect but you're talking about a president who came into office with an economic situation that can only be compared to the one Roosevelt had, oh and two wars, and a failing educational system. lets wait until he's out of office for a couple of years before we judge him as a president.

    He would definitely fail the Tea Party purity test.

    I agree with this point. I disagree with your assertion that Obama has emphasized the public sector at the expense of the private when it comes to job creation.

    But you said that Obama is growing government which contradicts what the job numbers states. Private employers added 222,000 jobs last month and 30,000 public jobs were slashed. Please explain to me how does that reflect growth of public jobs.
