    Do all politicians think we are absolutely stupid?? Just talk to your neighbors and see if they are better off than they were 4 years ago. Ask how many of them have been looking for a job for how long. Ask how many of them have taken a job, any job just so they have some sort of income.

    Liars, every last one of them but this guy is now the Liar-in-Chief.

    So rather than, oh, say pass a law to boost employment or do anything about the job situation, the GOP's plan is to pass a law that will show how bad it's really gotten to pin the blame on Obama?

    Conservatives got in power almost 18 months ago and THIS is the ONLY thing on the jobs front you can think of?

    Here's a little hint.
    You know all those tax cuts the rich have been getting? What happened BEFORE all those tax cuts? Top earners were hit with a 91% tax rate. So rather than take the money and run, like what happens today, they REINVESTED in it their COMPANY and GREW IT. Either their company got it or the tax man did! Which meant new factories and jobs and increasing workers wages to remain competitive. Now the exec board just takes the money and runs...even after doing an INCOMPETENT job. Look at republican senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina. PERFECT EXAMPLE. Wrecked a multimillion dollar company, got handsomely rewarded for it.

    So, when we gave tax cuts to the rich, we cut our own throats vis a vie jobs.

    Trying to pin the jobs picture on Obama alone don't fly when 700,000 JOBS A MONTH were fleeing this country when BushCo left office. You think you turn around hiring on a dime?

    And hey...low grade morons.
    Banks now hold 70% of the oil futures contracts in this country.
    Do you think banks use that oil to wash their money in?
    No, they're buying it, driving up the price and making a tidy sum and who pays? We all do.

    Oh and republicans voted to not raise the budget of the oversight body that controls oil speculation.
    So, if you complain about high gas prices and vote republican, you have no one to blame but yourselves.

    Only shocking to us, Eagle....

    Liberals care not one iota.


    For a Liberal not data, facts, proof of any kind, or even experience will matter a bit in informing belief.

    Even hearing their champion promise the Russians that he will betray America after the election, with more 'flexibility,' they will race to the polls to pull the Democrat lever!

    So...you think they will be shocked at the lies about unemployment???

    The nation can't do anything until it has been given the TRUTH....something BO is not doing...

    The GOP has all kinds of bills in the works to improve the economy.....not that you'd know because Harry Reid in the Senate is making sure they never see the light of day....:mad:

    Obviously you believe that MORE government and MORE of BO's BS will solve the problem......talk about a low-grade moron......:cuckoo:

    It can most certainly be done in three years. The recession of 1920 lasted a mere 18 months and Harding did the exact opposite of Obama. He slashed marginal tax rates and pretty much stayed the hell out of the way.

    Obama agreed to continue GOP tax policy and added tax cuts of his own.

    In all fairness, you can blame him for that.

    Looks to me like that chart shows that GW Bush pretty much demolished all of the gains made by Clinton,

    but Barack Obama has managed to stop the bleeding.

    I'd hardly be offering that up as a case for putting the GOP back in power.
