    MORE PUBLIC SECTOR JOB NEEDED TO JUMP START THE ECONOMY.

    President Obama also reiterated, a number of times, that we need more public sector hiring. The private sector is fine, the president said, but more jobs need to be created in state and local government.
    Ben LaBolt, an Obama campaign spokesman, said in a statement that “Mitt Romney promised to eliminate even more public-sector jobs

    Obama may blame GOP for a bad jobs report but it's no subsitute for leadership | Fox News

    Mr. Obama’s point at his news conference was that for more than two years, monthly jobs reports have shown growth in the private sector, but continuing cutbacks in the public sector as state and local governments slash jobs in their struggle to balance their budgets; the public sector — not the private sector — most needs additional government help.

    "President Obama also reiterated, a number of times, that we need more public sector hiring."

    He has been wrong on everything else but we should believe him on this?

    Let's just take a look at the countries where they tried public sector hiring as a 'cure' for economic problems.... Italy? Not doing so great. Spain? Not doing so great. Greece? Nope, they're tanking worse that the previous two. Ireland? Ohhh, they destroyed their economy by public sector hiring.

    The evidence is there - for anyone with the courage to look. But courage is not something that the left wing are familiar with.

    Public sector jobs would be great if you could tax them enough to pay their own wages, otherwise you have to raise taxes on everyone or borrow the money, both a bad idea.

    Public stimulus does not mean that the public sector can sustain an economy. Obama has been talking about jump starting the economy for 4 years now.... Auto bailouts, cash for clunkers, Obamacare, redistribution, taxing the rich, increased regulation, failure to shift America's dependence from foreign oil...... None of these have had the intended effect of jump starting the economy.

    Do we really need 4 more years of costly failures to jump start the economy?
