    Does Obama control this? If he does, then government IS the answer!

    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.

    A better question would be, 'If we had added jobs since Obama took over, would he claim credit for it?'

    Answer, of course he would.

    And would be just as wrong. We, however, promote this type of lying. We insist he do something, and expect results. This allows our leaders to blame and take credit where it isn't deserved.

    Obama said it would stay below 8%. The stimulus has not created the jobs Obama said it would. Then we have this.

    Applications for jobless benefits rise to 462K - Yahoo! Finance

    More people applied for unemployment benefits last week, the first rise in three weeks and evidence that companies are reluctant to hire in a slow economy.

    Initial claims for unemployment aid rose by 13,000 to a seasonally adjusted 462,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. It was only the second rise in two months.

    The only unemployment numbers that count are the country wide percentages, not snap shots, and so far they're holding at 9.4 percent, 1.4 percent lower than the 10.8 percent when Regan was president in 1981.

    That is far above 8% Obama said the stimulus would keep it at.

    Obama has lied and done nothing to get the private sector to create jobs.

    Of course he did. And he was hoping, fingers crossed an all. And if he controlled it, it would have bene less. He doesn't. But as long as you expect the president to control it, the president, no matter who he is, will make such claims and hope. And will take credit when it happens, or is anywhere close.
