    The unemployment rate is back up to 9%. He'll be sitting in the dugout, again, very soon.

    I'm guessing that he'll reserve the UBL pics for next year, so as to try and cultivate another boost.

    You have to have a credible candidate to run against him... you don't. You have to have a real solution to the issues... you don't.

    You can't deposit Osama bin Laden's body in a bank account or ask it for a job.
    When Obama wants to help improve bank accounts and jobs, you far-righties scream: "Don't Tread on Me"... then when he takes out the terrorist the W. couldn't find after 8 years, you demand Obama get you a job and put free money in your bank account...

    Make up your minds.

    Yep and will be asking like they are right now, "Where are the jobs," "Where is the reduction in deficit as promised?", "Where is the strong economic growth?", "Where did the trillion dollar TARP and Stimulus money go?"
    As Clinton said, "It is the economy, Stupid!"

    Where are the jobs? 14.76 Million unemployed and 2.6 million fewer people working today than in January 2009. You seem to be buying the Obama rhetoric and the question is, why?

    I don't know. We ahve those tax cuts still in place? Where are they creating jobs?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Right, Bush put tax cuts in place 10 years ago and those same cuts are in place now. How long between your last raise? Bush created jobs, Obama has lost jobs.

    So, we hasve to continuely reduce taxes until business and the wealthy pay none at all? Is that really your position?
