    How can ANYONE with a straight face excuse away this mess by pointing at "jobs" when yall had 2 fucking years to address our problems and you spent ALL your time on healthcare?

    This is by far the worst failed effort to change the subject I've ever seen.

    And with a 4.3 % Jobs number the Democrats were screaming for BLOOD...WORSE than the 'Great Depression' we were told with Bush.

    Yeah they had BOTH houses and the Exec...

    Obama and the Statists chose to TANK the Economy further with ObamaCare.

    TWO full years? Wow. Within less than four years, we were attacked on the US mainland, got into two wars, and a large city was destroyed by levees that were not maintained. Obama is moving too slowly to up the US DEATH TOLL.

    Levees that were not maintained well?

    You are funny. Have you ever been to New Orleans and looked at it. I have. My first thought was why the hell does anyone live here. It's an engineering feet just to keep the place dry when there isn't a hurricane hitting it. No amount of "maintenance" would have changed that out come. They are are Dirt Levees dude. Only so much they can do when so much Water is dumped on them.

    The monthly job/loss situation has turned around to the good by about 800,000 jobs a month,

    since Obama became president.

    What prevents nutters from understanding that we have added private sector jobs for 26 months in a row?

    First off the numbers say no.

    In the House, the Democratic share of only 59 percent, not a "supermajority" In the Senate the majority lasted only 7 weeks due to the Senate race recount here in MN and...


    So what youre talking about is seven weeks. OR if we disregard the Byrd portion, the supermajoirty didnt begin until September 24, 2009 when Kirk took office.

    Also the Pelosi house passed all of this:

    The bolded portions relate directly to jobs.

    lastly,

    It took us DECADES to get into this mess. BOTH parties spent like crazy, repealing the very controls that would have averted this crisis all in the name of profit. To expect that it was going to get fixed and all better in just a couple years is ridiculously naive.

    That's all swell. Only problem is ignoring F&F won't do shit for jobs. It would allow a crooked administration off the hook though. So, as I said a massive failed diversion tactic.

    How anyone can listen to a word she says is Beyond me. Her Partner in Crime in the Senate has Tabled over 2 Dozen House Bills with out even so much as Debate.

    If the Democrats manage to win at all in this election, and actually convince Americans that it's the GOP lead house blocking everything that caused all this. I swear to god I'm out of here lol. Please tell me Americans are not that Blind.

    Even if you think the GOP's Ideas are all wrong. You have to admit they have at least tried to get stuff done, and been Blocked by the Senate in every single Case.
