there are no jobs because the Obama administration thought it was more important to use the crisis and a slew of dirty backroom deals to ram through obamacare, the most despised piece of legislation in decades. and the corrupt mainstream media was hand in hand with Obama in doing it.
in addition they spent almost a trillion dollars, not to help the job market, but to pay off special interests in a kickback loosely disguised as stimulus, as a result, we are deeper in debt and have less options now to try to actually help the job market.
any improvement now has nothing to do with Obama's failed policies but more to do with the resilience of the American economy, and the American people.
all we can hope for is that Obama and as many democrats as possible are sent packing this November, but it will be a fight as the corrupt media led by NBC will do everything in their power to keep the democrats in office and destroy this country further.
There are no jobs??? So no one in America is working. An observation worthy of your brilliance.

First, over 4 million PRIVATE SECTOR jobs have been created in the past 26 months. As usual at job announcement time the past couple of months of announcements were revised upward as will this one.

Secondly, just as everyone has been hoping government workers have been shrinking making the appearance of jobs look smaller than it actually is. 130,000 private sector jobs were created but 15,000 government jobs were lost.

Heck, in the 2002 recovery we actually lost jobs as the economy improved and in 2003 jobs still were not created. And that recession does not even come close to how bad this one is.

Obama gets an A+ while bush gets a D-.

Good News......More Govt employees are making in excess of $150,000 per year than ever before. Growing Big Brother/Big Union and increasing the horrific impact of unfunded tax slave funded Pensions will provide The Obama with quite a legacy.

This is comical, but some of the left wing zealots actually believe this.

the fact is that obama is the worst president in the history of this country and one of the worst leaders in the history of the planet.

i can not even give him a grade because frankly he has not even earned an F-.

everything he has done has been exactly wrong except bin laden in which case he just went along with the military and even then he put in a memo to make sure that if things did go wrong he would be able to blame others.

this president is not a leader, real leaders don't lie about their accomplishments, or take credit for the work of others, and real leaders don't pass the buck and blame their own mistakes on other people.

but that is what this president does time after time,

he has destroyed our economy, he has buried us in debt,with his payoffs like the stimulus/kickback and the green jobs scams.

he has ripped this country apart, pitting man against woman, black against white, rich vs. poor,

and all the way he has time after time taken credit for others accomplishments.

Barack Obama is without a doubt the worst president in the history of America.

They should be paid more, they are working longer and harder. Today we have one of the lowest government worker per citizen ratios in modern history. And thanks to Obama, the number continuos to go down each year.

Technology is killing jobs regardless of who is President. And unless a President can perform magic, the only thing that will improve housing is time.

"He" has destroyed our economy? I suppose you are going to say that bush handed over an economy that was doing good.

"He" only took credit for ordering and giving the go ahead to the mission. He has not claimed that "he" got bin Laden. How does that compare with joyous celebration of the administration in power when Saddam was captured?

Blame others? You mean like the bush administration and 9-11? The first recession under bush? The state of the military when bush ordered the invasion of Iraq after being in office two years? Blaming Carter and the CRA for the 2007 housing collapse? You mean like that?

bush ran up the debt and spending in good times. Most economists agree with the Keynsian philosophy, spend and borrow in hard times and pay it back in good times. What did bush do given a balanced budget?

Heck, even now the Republican House passed more spending than requested by Obama.....what is the deal with that?

LOL, there's still clowns out there who blame Bush? You think our bad economy might have anything to do with no jobs and banks who are not lending?

Perhaps if the bailouts ever stop we might even turn the corner.
The QE3 is all the doing of Obama and Bernanke. Can't blame Bush for that one.

I did not blame bush once. However, for a true picture of where we are you have to know where we started. Are things as well as we would like? NO. Could things be a lot worse? YES.

The problem is not the Fed, the problem is Congress. If Congress was treating this crisis as it should the Fed would not be involved at all.

The Fed has held rates to near zero for how long as a stimulus and where are we at?

Heck congress can not even agree to extending a 2% cut in SS in SS taxes without debating how to pay for it. How are they going to pay for extending the bush tax cuts?

now it is congress's fault, because it can't possibly be the fault of Obama, Obama had total control with both a democrat house and a democrat senate, and large margins in both, yet he decided not to fix the economy, but instead, he decided to ram through obamacare the most despised piece of legislation in generations.

in addition his idea of stimulus was an almost trillion dollar payoff to the special interest groups. and he spent billions more on payoffs to supporters disguised as green jobs,

and lets not forget his spending millions on date nights, expensive vacations, concerts, separate planes for his wife and himself, golf and parties while the rest of us cut corners everywhere we can, and the number of Americans in the job force hits all time lows.

my enduring image of Obama will always be him singing hey jude in the white house while we were facing one of the worst oil spills in US history, and he had not even talked to the head of bp.

and this recession does not even occur if the democrats in congress do not do everything in their power to stop any reform at fanny mae and freddy mac, but apparently it was far more important to pay off their cronies like frederick raines, then it was to do right for America.

and lets not forget the CRA, passed by carter and ramped up by Clinton, more pandering for votes by democrats with the result, more pain for the people.

but that is what Obama and the democrats have always been about, using tax dollars to buy votes time after time, no matter what the consequences are.

buying votes with kickbacks and payoffs, is a democratic party tradition, but Obama has brought it to new heights, never seen before, and the result is record debt and continued unemployment.

Barack Obama is the worst president in the history of America.

The economy was in the tank before Obama showed up. And I don't blame government for the majority of it, the majority of the blame goes to corporations and executives that put their personal profit ahead of this country. Teh governments blame consists of a lack of regulation and proper oversight.

Befpre the healthcare bill got underway, they passed a $787 Billion or there-a-bouts stimulus bill. Are you saying that they should not have waited to see if the stimulus worked? They should have started right away passing even more stimulus? Really? If that is not what you are saying, why don't you tell us exactly what you are saying?

The pay-offs to the unions were a Republican idea to help the states which were having much lower tax revenues with increased expenses. If you want to say that was a Republican pay-off to unions, be my guest. I might even support you on it.

I bet every once in a while you wonder when Obama will stop blaming bush. When you do it the next time think about you blaming Carter and the CRA. What was that over 30 years and 5 Presidents ago? And you think Obama should stop blaming bush? Really?
