    Oh, so the problem is that the economy is just fine, but that businesses just won't hire anyone? The scary part is that he actually thinks that's how it is.

    He also had a "new" idea to help home owners:
    I seem to recall this was tried already and only 8,00 people got their loans modified. Excuse me, it was only 1,000:

    If those without jobs would become self-employed it would also solve the problem.

    Yup, it's all the fault of those bastard business owners. Fuckers just won't hire people when I tell 'em to, they insist on stupid shit like more demand.

    Translation: "Either start hiring or we'll pass even more laws against you."

    Reminds me of an old office joke: "NOTICE: THE BEATINGS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MORALE IMPROVES"

    Maybe if his government didnt have so many regulations, reporting requirements and tax by death people would hire. Your economy is fucked!

    I am so glad that Obama is president. No one else could possibly have thought of these things. We should all bow down and worship him.

    Now I understand why rdean says things like that, it is actually enjoyable to lie so outrageously.

    One of the most successful industries today is oil and gas.
    One of the most governmentally threatened industries today is oil and gas.

    Just don't hire too many people, you may be painting a target on yourself.

    I guess he's just trying to paint himself as the good guy. See, those nasty companies have money but they wont hire anyone because....uh, they're nasty BIG companies.
    Does anyone fall for that shit?
