The Obama spend-a-rama is not a jobs program it's a pork barrel spending program.

this will only slow any economic recovery plus cause inflation

Don't worry Joe, I can't think of one sane person who actually thought you and B. Hussein Obama knew what they were doing with the economy. Biden is a complete joke and it's pretty sad when he is the VP. 2 major bums in control with no clue. Gotta love those Dems. OH yeah, I'm sure just a ton of new jobs are on they way Joe. Go put your foot in your mouth like you always do.

Biden finally admits his administration's utter incompetence on addressing the unfolding economic catastrophe. Sounds a lot like the previous administration: Obama/Biden--just like Bush/Chaney except even worse. Be afraid, America, be very afraid....

Well we had promises made and not kept, NOW, it's we misread things despite all of the experts we have at our disposal. I used to like Biden until he became bozobama's stooge and was muzzled. We don't accept the promises being broken, being lied to and the flimsy excuses for failure!! Time to take OUR country back!! The stooge is ruining OUR country!

No, but so far I've managed to have my hrs. almost cut in 1/2, and my neighbor is forced to take off at least every friday. I guess we aren't eligible for those promised shovel ready jobs.

Biden should take a page from Palin's book and resign he is a national joke if the lousy media would highlight how stupid he is. He has his family reaping millions in nepotism as he struts around acting like a dunce.
How did that trip to Iraq go Joe, were you well received or did Obama tell you to take a hike?

Here in Chicago they dont evern want a Walmart to be built on the Southside. The politicians are against it. It would bring jobs to the City and a new store that would help revitalize the area.

Biden is a goof who knows very little of economic causes and effects.

No one in their right mind is spending much money with these clowns in office.

Shovel ready, that's the funniest thing I've heard since "line by line with a scalpel". This guy didn't even read the stimulous bill before rubber stamping it Chicago style.

What ever happened to " we must reduce our independance on foreign oil" seems like when gas goes over $3.00 a gallon, we send the president over to Saudi Arabia to kiss the kings royal ass.( same as bush did)

Where are the jobs?

Biden is such an entertainer. Every time he opens his mouth it's a true blunderfest - always good for a laugh. I can only imagines O's people scrambling every time he has a speaking engagement. I love the truth though.

Eleven Trillion Dollar deficit folks - the tax payers have seen NOTHING.

Here we go... this was too easy to predict. Obama and Co. can just banging on the "it was bad when we got here drum" for 4 years. Shoot, they can probably blame Bush into his second term if they work it a little bit.

Add to that the insanely stupid stat of "jobs saved" and they can buy time for as long as they want.

Never mind that their policies (not Bush's) are discouraging a recovery. Murky plans for huge government intervention in everything from carbon credits to health care to even CEO pay are hardly the way you get businesses to build for the future.

Sorry fellas, but blaming "tax cuts for the rich" is gonna have to stop at some point.

They knew da-mn well. They are trashing the economy with cynical contempt. This is a PLANNED part of their "change". Think about it. Massive unemployment creates public panic and chaos and calls for the "government to DO something!"

What BETTER way to gut the constitution and force millions on their wet-dream "governemnt healthcare"?


According to some, when different employment sectors are taken into account, such as those working part-time, those thrust into "self-employment", those who have simply given up looking, and those who have had their current employment cut in half, UNEMPLOYMENT IS AT 20%.

BOTH my sister-in-law AND brother are unemployed. Two different sectors of employment. They've got 5 kids.

THIS IS WHAT OBAMA WANTS. Chaos, public panic and crisis. He can't seize a free-market economy any other way.

The government has NEVER created a thing but misery.
