    Well it's jobs anyway, then the economy, then healthcare. Despite a "brazilian" healthcare speeches by President Obama, and a faithful MSM, Americans just don't consider it that big a deal. The Democrat Party better wake up before November or... well...

    Americans Say Jobs Top Problem Now, Deficit in Future

    Q. Most important problem facing the country today?

    Hot Air Blog Archive Brown: An entire year has gone to waste

    Video and transcript available at the last link via Hot Air.

    If 2008 was the year of "Anyone but Bush!" then come November, the American people will take a hard look at the House and Senate and proclaim 2010 the yaer of "anyone else!". Which in a way is really sad. I hate to see Harry Reid go. With Reid out of power there will only be two people working their butts off to destroy the Democrats, Pelosi and Obama. Now if only there were someone, anyone in the Republican Party that raised above the political enthusiam of "meh". Oh well, so long as Congress stays tied up in knots the the POTUS is useless our freedoms are secure. Hmmm. Maybe we should keep things just the way they are? :tongue:

    But he promised a laser like focus on jobs jobs jobs?
    Oh that was last week.

    Obama is obsessed with passing health care. He sees his presidency in the balance. Of course if it passes it will be so bad his presidency is dead. If it doesnt pass it will be dead. A win-win for the public.
    I imagine him Nixon-like traipsing through the white house at night, cigarette in one hand, MD20-20 in the other yelling for Rahm to bully those SOBs into passing this thing.

    When job losses were being clocked under Bush so many of you just called it whining to mention it.

    Why are you now concerned about the jobless?

    Under Bush the jobless rate was about 6%.
    Under Obama the jobless rate is about 10%. And that's if you believe the figures.
    See the difference?

    Why was joblessness not important when it was growing under Bush but is now a BIG deal to you when its abating under Obama?

    Why did the right mock anyone who showed concern for the growing problem?

    Please show where anyone "mocked" anyone showing concern.
    It is a big deal because the rate is twice what it was under Bush and because it is not abating at all.
