    470,000 Americans lost their jobs so far this month. 20,000 higher than expected and the figure was adjusted for seasonal hiring....which means the number of first time claims is actually much higher.

    Now Obama proposed and the Congress passed a 187 billion dollar jobs package a while back...what happen's...we are STILL LOSING JOBS ON A MASSIVE SCALE!!!!...now he wants to propose ANOTHER JOBS PACKAGE!!! Then in the same breath says let's cut spending!!!!

    Axelrod: "The Stimulus was a success because we only lost 68,000 jobs in December." What a fricken dope.

    WHO THE HELL IS ADVISING THE PRESIDENT!!!!!!!??????

    The State of the Union address to the American people was ALL BULLSHIT and NO SUBSTANCE!!!!!!

    The only thing that you can be sure of is that nothing ever changes in DC. The whores waste as much of our money as possible and <<<<spin>>>> why it's necessary. You didn't hear Obama say that he was going to preserve SS & Medicare did you? He did not say one word about them. There is no way that the DC whores can save SS & Medicare, so why is the MF whining about "healthcare"??

    Its not the "Bush Recession", its the "Obama Recession". Look at the unemployment chart for 2000-2008 and 2009-2012 and tell us which has the higher unemployment. Besides, its poetic justice that Obama gets the blame for the recession he helped cause. Obama and Barney were the ones protecting Fannie & Freddie from GOP attempts at regulation. Clinton gets some of the blame for his promoting the giving mortgages to the unqualified:
    Bill Clinton's drive to increase homeownership went way too far - BusinessWeek
    Subprime mortgage crisis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I defined the actions by DEMOCRATS that directly caused the financial crisis and recession. Please provide proof that the GOP/Bush caused the recession.

    I'd say Boyking owns, at the very least, 100% of the unemployment over 8%.

    Maybe you should learn to read.

    Fewer Americans filed first-time claims for unemployment insurance last week and total benefit rolls shrank, indicating companies are nearing the end of staffing cuts as the economy recovers.
