    Was that Obama's Stimulus?... Because it was already 8% when he got into Office at the End of January.

    Either way, the Move Towards Job Creation has Begun... In Spite of Washington's Intervention.

    When Jobs are being Created next Spring, Obama will get the Credit...

    Doesn't Deserve it, but he will get it.

    :)

    peace...

    You know they will never be happy. They have set their platform on "the economy will fail" premise. Any information that does not meet the premise is rejected

    Little asshole forgot the very next paragraph in his article

    The fact is the stimuli (all of the stimulus packages from Bush to Obama) have been failures and were completely unnecessary... they were simply power grabs, political paybacks, and ways to increase government by instilling fears in the American populous.... and we'll all be paying for it for years to come

    Would the OP kindly explain how the loss of 11,000 Jobs in one month is now considered a success? Is is that we have become so accoustomed to large job loss numbers that when it's lower we celebrate that? They used to call that lowering you standards a little. I would also remind the OP of a few things,

    Jan. 09 US Unemployment was 7.6%
    Feb. 09 US Unemployment was 8.1%
    Bureau of Labor Statistics Data

    "I believe that legislation of this enormous magnitude, that by necessity we are moving quickly -- we're not moving quickly because we're trying to jamb something down people's throats. We're moving quickly because we're told that if we don't move quickly, that the economy is going keep on getting worse, and we'll have another 2 or 3 or 4 million jobs loss this year." Barack Obama 2/09
    Quotes from Obama talking to Democrats about stimulus package | Geeky Weekly

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Job losses continued to mount in March and unemployment hit a 25-year high, according to the government's latest reading on the battered labor market Friday.

    Employers trimmed 663,000 jobs from their payrolls last month, roughly in line with forecasts of a loss of 658,000 jobs, according to economists surveyed by Briefing.com.

    For the first three months of the year, 2 million jobs have been lost, and 5.1 million jobs have been lost since the start of 2008.
    2009 job losses already have topped 2 million mark - Apr. 3, 2009

    I suppose one could argue that by lowering the standard on what is the measure for success for spending 750 Billion dollars, that less people losing their jobs is a victory, however, I don't think any one of those 11 thousand would agree with you on that one of the several Million who have lost their jobs since Stimulus has been in place.
