    While I agree that he is not a good President - he is dead on with this one.
    Internet and computerization/technology has caused far more job losses than it has created.

    You're being ridiculous. Obama isn't blaming the Internet entirely for job losses, he is just saying that changes in technology are one of the factors, and they are.

    this is fact.
    But it needs to be understood that it not only caused jobs to be lost...but those jobs will never be regained.

    As more people buy on line, the less need there will be for retailers.

    People who buy on line are not buying from knee jerk reacting...impulse buying....they are buying knowing they will not have the product for days...soemtimes weeks....

    This allows a manufacturer a little lee way and does not need to manufacture more for inventory...and instead, he can manufacture more in line with demand.

    I can go on...but it happnes to be fact. We have lost jobs we will never regain...and will continue to do so for many years to come.

    Obama proved right away that he lacks the Character to take responsibility for anything. He has a long laundry list of things he says are the Reason for the Very Slow Recovery. The only thing he does not think has any effect, is his own Policies.
