Barack Obama, our next President

The government’s employment numbers maintained by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics support Mr. Jealous‘ latest criticism. The black unemployment rate was 12.7 percent when President George W. Bush finished his second term and Mr. Obama took office.

It soared over the first three years of Mr. Obama’s first term to 16.7 percent by September 2011, the worst jobless rate for black Americans since 1983. Unemployment among black teenagers exploded to 39.3 percent in July 2012.

“Statistics show that the African-American community is in bad shape under the Obama administration,” the widely read black website Your Black World said this week.Earlier this month, Rep. Marcia L. Fudge, Ohio Democrat, the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, let loose with some stinging criticisms of Mr. Obama’s record on his appointments in his second term.“The people you have chosen to appoint in this new term have hardly been reflective of this country’s diversity,” she said in a letter to the president.“Their ire is compounded by the overwhelming support you’ve received from the African-America community.”Ms. Fudge and other CBC members complain that Mr. Obama has not devoted enough attention in his agenda to many of the critical economic issues within the black community, especially severe unemployment.”I think we are going to hear more voices of opposition coming from all sectors of black leadership, and certainly from the most hard-pressed sections of the black population,” said Tony Monteiro, professor of African-American studies at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Unfortunately, most black leaders do not understand that it is Mr. Obama’s economic policies that have contributed to the high level of unemployment among all Americans, especially blacks.

The NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus still think that Mr. Obama’s $800 billion economic-stimulus plan, largely made up of public works, infrastructure and other government spending, was the smart way to create jobs and boost economic growth. If anything, they wanted him to spend more.

There were no economic-growth incentives in his plan, though, that would have boosted venture-capital investment, the mother’s milk of business expansion, new business formation and job creation.

Don't nned a dictionary to know the definition of those words separately.

The specifics I was asking you about is why you think Obama is "doing a good job" as a single phrase.

Soon after Mr. Obama’s stimulus plan became effective and the money began flowing out across the country, a look at the list of recipients revealed that it included hundreds of federal agencies and programs. It expanded government programs and maybe some of the money trickled down to workers, but it created relatively few permanent jobs.Once the stimulus funds were spent on roads, bridges and other public works projects, the jobs ended.The proof that Mr. Obama’s Keynesian spending didn’t work is in the numbers: high unemployment that is still skirting 8 percent, and that is 14 percent when you include workers who want and need full-time employment but are forced to take part-time jobs.

The economy isn’t getting stronger, as we can see in the economic-growth numbers that measure the gross domestic product. It grew at a barely moving pace of 0.4 percent in the last three months of 2012, according to the Commerce Department’s latest estimate Thursday. The Federal Reserve says unemployment will remain high this year and next and that economic growth will remain weak for at least the next two years.

Now Mr. Obama is calling for a $9-an-hour minimum wage, which the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus have supported in the past and no doubt support now. This is a job killer, however, particularly for small businesses and especially for minorities. It will kill entry-level jobs, and that will drive black employment even higher.

A whack on the hiney with an open palm of the hand when it's well-deserved avoids violence further down the road.

Children discipline themselves when touching a hot stove. They never do it again.

When it comes to teaching right from wrong, they need a loving parent to teach them the same hot stove analogy.

THE BIGOTTED OBAMA SUPPORTERS WHO USES OBAMAS COLOR TO ROB PEOPLE OF FREE SPEECH SO IF YOU DISAGREE WITH OBAMA IT'S ONLY BECAUSE HE IS BLACK NOT BECAUSE HE MIGHT BE DOING THE SAME THINGS THAT BUSH AND COMPANY DID ;Can It Happen Here;The decision of the government in Cyprus to simply take money out of people's bank accounts there sent shock waves around the world. People far removed from that small island nation had to wonder: "Can this happen here?"

Well that explains why you're a liberal who only cares about what you want.
Hope you didn't resort to calling your poor parents names when they tried to instill some common sense into your "it's all about me" mentality too.
Aw, come on, dumb carol, when are you actually going to get around to dieing for me? I mean like the baskets and bunnies are half price all ready--get on with the big gesture.(BTW, how early does hubby have to leave to pick up his crew at Home Depot? Weren't you due for a dye job to get you out of the grey?)
