    Sheez ... that's what 4 years of Democrats controlling the purse strings gets you...

    Well that and over 14 trillion in national debt..

    ---------------------------:hellno:

    In a potentially serious setback for the U.S. economy, hiring unexpectedly stalled in November while the nation's unemployment rate jumped to 9.8%, reversing a pattern of slow but steady improvement in the prospects for American workers.

    The grim report released Friday by the Labor Department flew in the face of strong job growth in October and a slew of largely positive economic indicators in recent days. And it called into question the belief of most economists that the recovery from the worst recession in a generation was gaining momentum.

    It's on the list of things to do folks......But first we have to look into Don't ask don't tell.Then we need to make sure all the illegals who crossed over with the kiddies in tow or had them later on are granted amnesty then are given a fully paid college education thanks to Uncle Sam or the taxpayers take your pick.Then we need to make sure Americans are eating correctly.Then at some point this administration will get around to looking into letting companies know what there energy costs and health care costs and taxes will be for the next year so these companies can plan.

    This administration could do what's needed to get people working but they would rather just dick around and do other things instead.

    If they gave this man the Nobel prize for doing nothing really.Can you imagine what he's gonna get for running up a debt into the trillions and having absolutely nothing to show for it.Unemployment for arguments sake is really into double digits,The housing market a shambles,Iran same old same old.North Korea and South Korea coming to blows.

    I could go on but what's the point the Left think this guy is doing an outstanding job as well as the media.

    So, with employment increasing, let's cut a bunch of people one unemployment loose. And make sure that nothing gets done in the way of projects that might repair our badly worn out infrastructure. The Republican plan seems to be to destroy anything that President Obama proposes, no matter what the cost to the nation. And if we have a nation left, give what is left to their very wealthy benefactors.
