1) The recession started in the 4th quarter of 2007 and is the cause of the unemployment. The rate was over 7.5 when he left office. To blame Obama for the effects of the Bush recession is beyond pathetic.
2) Most businesses are doing OK. Corporate profits hit a record in December.
3) The budgets submitted by Presidents are rarely diretly put up for a vote. They typically go to Congress where it the budgets are modified. Congress put up two of Obama's budgets only as apolitical game. An informed person would know this.
4) Stimulus spending has been done by Presidents in the past & is a valid method of fighting recessions. Again, an informed person would know this. You comment on green companies is a blatant lie.
Slashing spending before the economy recovers would plunge us into recession.
5) Why is unemployment even being discussed?? Because Republicans went wild on spending & plunged us into the worst recession in 80 years. Republicans like Boehner, Canter, McConnell & your buddy Paul Ryan.
A budget resolution based on President Obamaís 2013 budget failed to get any votes in the Senate on Wednesday.

In a 99-0 vote, all of the senators present rejected the presidentís blueprint.

Itís the second year in a row the Senate has voted down Obamaís budget.

Obama's 2012 budget failed 97 to 0 last May after Obama himself last April said he wanted deeper deficit cuts.

The House earlier this year unanimously rejected Obama's budget.

Hypocrisy Feinstein?
Despite calling in the same year for an outright ban on all firearms, Senator Dianne Feinstein, who is set to introduce legislation that would gut the second amendment, said in 1995 that she carried a concealed gun in order to protect herself against terrorists. Yes Dianne more terrorists and crime should mean continued rights and freedoms to protect ourselves.http://pushbacknow.n et/2012/12/31/senator-dianne-f einstein-carries-a-concealed-w eapon/
Stricter laws and harsher penalities for crimes committed with guns. That's the better solution over criminalizing law abiding citizens.

Why is it liberals don't seem to quite understand it's criminals who don't obey the law?

Again, we, i.e. conservatives, know this to be true.
Maybe I just haven't gone back far enough yet to find someone on the left who addressed that post.

No one is criticizing him for that.

<quoted text>Well they had them hiding under their desks in the event of an atom bomb attack back in the 1950's(Flack and a few others still living there) so I suppose a zigzagging class makes about as much sense.
Duck and cover drills were routine across the nation as well as short safety films about topics such as looking both ways before crossing roads. Those little films were pretty effective, I only got hit by a car once.

I zagged when I should have zigged and a Packard Clipper got me.

The President is on the side of the American people; not the killers, like you are.
Most people are murdered by someone they know. When a person owns a gun; that gun becomes the ultimate solution to a problem.

Welcome to flack world, where children getting killed by another crazed gun nut is called a good crisis. You are one pathetic little man that continously attempts to elivate your pathetic self. I suspect that you have been a failure all of your miserable life, and it certainly shows.
