    Isn't it a shame that no one told us it would not work?

    Hell - At least with FDR's WPA we got something for the money the government spent. Obama just gave money to his friends.

    Indeed..........that should play real well in places like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida come 2012!!

    You're seeing the last hurrah of the liberal establishment for at least a generation...........at least 30 years......at least in the oval office. Tens of millions have died since Jimmy Carter left office so many voters under 35 have no clue that this is what you get when you put a lefty in the office of the presidency.

    Anyone following the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Employment Situation, Household Survey has the data that employment in 12/2009, was 137,291,000 jobs. Up to May, 2011, then 2,488,000 jobs have been created: Subsequent the impact of the Stimulus, continuing. The Obama-Biden Stimulus was signed into law in February, 2009.

    The Employed Persons Number in May, 2011, was 139,779,000.

    That is an increase of employment, showing the success of the Obama-Biden Stimulus, following the Stingy, American-Murdering, Foreclosure-Creating, Financial House Collapsing, Stock Market Crashing: Bush II, Terms I and II, 2008 Stimulus.

    The Bush/Tea Party/Republican Stimuls of $170.0 bil. clearly pales in comparison with the $800.0 bil. Obama Stimulus. The Bush/Tea Party/Republican Stimulus was niggardly, in comparison.

    After over a $1T we have fewer jobs than when we started.

    But it could have been worse! That will be Obama's stump speech. Yes, things are bad. But when I got into office they were really bad. Really Really Bad. REALLY REALLY REALLY BAD. So you should be happy things are just bad. Because they could be a lot worse.

    I'm sure that will get votes.

    If all those jobs have been created, why then has the unemployment rate not fallen? Why has the economy not even close to starting a recovery? Why is consumer confidence still down in the dumper? Why is the general feeling of the country still as bad as it was in 2008?
    2 million jobs created...In which industries? The private sector surely is not participating.
