    So, another poor jobs report and unemployment rose to 9.2%. The economy sucks, the qtryly GDP report coming out soon is not expected to improve over the 1st qtr which also sucked, and the housing situation has not gotten better either.

    This is what you get when your president continually badmouths businesses.
    This is what you get when your president continually spouts off about raising taxes on the very people who could invest here in the USA instead of elsewhere in the world. Why else would the foreign investors stop putting money into our economy and instead are buying our gov't bonds and treasuries?
    This is what you get when your corporate tax rate is the highest or 2nd highest in the world.
    This is what you get when you write reams of new regs that cost businesses 1.5 trillion a year to comply with.
    This is what you get when you do everything you can to stop drilling for oil and natural gas and instead waste billions on ridiculous high speed railways that will never be economically viable, or on wind and solar companies, many of which are overseas, that won't be viable either.
    This is what you get when your EPA does an end run around Congress to implement as much of the cap and trade program as they can.
    This is what you get when your NLRB obstructs expanding into right to work states.
    This is what you get when you let the environmentalists delay or destroy every project that could grow an economy and create jobs.
    This is what you get when you focus on FAIRNESS for some people instead of what's best for everybody.

    This is what you get when you elect a man who doesn't know how to givern, has no courage and no clue. He gives a helluva nice speech though. I hope we do not re-elect him, but if we do we'll deserve what follows.
