    Yes you do, you keep denying it, but thanks to Obama we are not in the sewer, where we would have been if McClone and Failin would have succeeded in duping the people that thought Bush was so great. We have more hope and change than those two morons would have provided but I'm sure the ones that ride the short bus will continue to deny it.

    Look at that we agree the only way to get out of this mess is to grow our way out of it, now since the 10 year tax cut incentive did not inspire job growth what is your solution?

    What exactly did Obama do to get us out of the sewer? Think the 15 million unemployed today think Obama got us out of the sewer? I hope I am around when you actually grow up.

    The tax cuts worked, 8.5 million jobs created from 2003-2007. The housing bubble burst and the financial meltdown as a result negated the effects of the tax cuts which after a time wear out, just like a pay raise wears out over time and you expect another one. Cut the corporate tax rate, revise the capital gains tax code, restructure the depreciation schedules, and reward individuals for innovation and creativity, all contrary to the Obama beliefs and economic model.

    He kept us out of the sewer. Bush put us in the toilet, McCain would have put us in the sewer considering he was a Bush clone.

    I'm sure they blame Bush for putting them in the sewer, and if we hadn't had so much opposition from the party of no, they might have had jobs by now, but they can send their thank you notes to the Republicans in Congress.


    I hope I am around when you actually grow up.
    You are around, or are you a a figment of your own imagination?

    Meanwhile back in Wisconsin.


    <Salary boosted for worker with ties to Hopper
    A state worker with ties to Sen. Randy Hopper is being paid $11,000 more annually than her predecessor in a position at the department of regulation and licensing.

    State officials said the woman, 26, was hired to a limited term, communications specialist position last month, with a salary equivalent to $42, 328 annually.

    State officials Friday said the woman’s predecessor left the position in January, with a salary equivalent to $31,200 annually. No explanation was given for the new hire’s higher pay.

    Sources told WKOW27 News the state employee was the same person referred to by Hopper’s estranged wife when she publicly stated her husband started an affair in Madison. Hopper (R-Fond du Lac) and his estranged wife are in the midst of a divorce action.

    During an interview with WKOW27 News, Hopper declined to comment on his relationship with the woman.

    But Hopper told WKOW27 News he played no role in the woman’s hiring.

    WKOW27 News is not identifying the state employee at this time because her hiring or employment is not the subject of a formal inquiry or complaint, and she is not named in civil actions.

    The woman has yet return any phone calls from WKOW27 News seeking comment. >

    Guess which political party Sen. Randy Hopper belongs to ?

    Kinda looks like you finally got the Wisconsin thread derailed. I am proud of anyway, since it seems you have somehow managed to not to succumb to your natural knee jerk reaction of posting RANDOM BLS.GOV numbers…yet.
