He owns it now. Employment is climbing, slow yes, but when you have the super rich Romey outsourcing as fast as they can to make even more money off cheap labor instead of keeping jobs here, tough fight but he's fixing it.
And this mess will always be Bushs legacy! What a useless human being!
Exactly how is he owning it by still blaming Bush? You talk out of both sides of your mouth. Typical of the Libtads.

More jobs are heading overseas because of Obama's constant war on business. Obama is fixing nothing. Unemployment is still at 8.3% with no end in sight. Actual unemployment is near 13% when you include the people that have stopped looking for work.

People like you are sheep. Just doing what your told so you can keep sucking on the welfare teet.

I could say you were stupid, but that would be an insult to the stupid.

A Moral Outrage

Senate Democrats Poised for Power Grab

Senate Democrats are going to be working over the Christmas break to deliver a lump of coal to the American people in the form of a radical changing of the Senate’s rules. This is a naked power grab by liberals in the Senate pure and simple.

The National Journal reports that Senate Democrats are laying the groundwork to chip away at the filibuster on January 5, 2011. They are going to push the idea that a simple majority of the Senate can abolish the filibuster rules, or radically change the rules, in a new Congress.

All Democratic senators returning next year have signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., urging him to consider action to change long-sacrosanct filibuster rules. The letter, delivered this week, expresses general frustration with what Democrats consider unprecedented obstruction and asks Reid to take steps to end those abuses. While it does not urge a specific solution, Democrats said it demonstrates increased backing in the majority for a proposal, championed by Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., and others, to weaken the minority’s ability to tie the Senate calendar into parliamentary knots.

They are angry that they could not railroad through the Senate legislation imposing Card Check, a Public Option for ObamaCare and Climate Change. Now it is pay back time


Ironically, it is Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) who has caused the unprecendented number of Senate filibusters with his strong arm tactics. Bill Wichterman, former high ranking Senate Republican leadership staffer and expert in the Senate’s rules, wrote over at at National Review Online in a piece titled “Blame Ried, Not Republicans, for ‘Obstructionism‘” that Reid is to blame for the large numbers of filibusters over the past two years.

We’ve all heard the complaint: Republicans are the “Party of No.” But the GOP’s historic number of filibusters is the only viable response to Sen. Harry Reid’s unprecedentedly authoritarian rule of the Senate. Senator Reid has blocked the minority from amending bills more than any Senate majority leader in history — and more times than the last four Senate majority leaders combined.

Wichterman explains the way Senator Reid has abused his authority as Majority Leader to stifle the free amendment process in the Senate. Republicans responded with filibusters.

Understanding the Filibuster – And Why it Has to Go

130 Filibusters Attempts in Last Two Years – That’s Around 129 Too Many

Between January 9th, 2010 and the end of the year, the 111th Congress has registered a whopping 132 moves to filibuster. That means 132 senators formally threatened to take to the Senate floor to rant for hours on end in order to halt the political process. By way of contrast, in the entire period of 1955-1961, this happened just once. But back then, a filibuster was a filibuster — any senator who wanted to prevent a vote on a bill that the majority was about to pass actually had to get up and talk, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington-style: Video
Now, nothing of the sort — in fact or fiction — ever happens.

Now, US Senate rules have gradually mutated to allow a mere threat of a filibuster to grind proceedings to a halt. This effectively means that each and every bill that passes the Senate must have a minimum of 60 votes (that’s how many it takes to override a filibuster). Clearly, this isn’t democratic. Over the last 20 years, the use of the filibuster has risen exponentially, utilized both by Democrats and Republicans when each party is in power. Liberals point to the last couple years as being particularly egregious, but the trend for falling back on the filibuster has been growing for decades now. Neither party’s hands are clean.
To put all this in context, Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sander’s 8-hour speech protesting tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans wasn’t even an official filibuster — there was never any motion to cloture. It evoked the principles of a filibuster and it embodied what a filibuster should be, but it didn’t obstruct the bill’s passage. However, it was undeniably a stirring piece of political theater.

Coincidence?

Some ignoramus thinking with half his brain cells makes a stupid comment and the whole Republican party is suddenly declaring rape legitimate? Are you friggin serious? What a stupid statement!!! So, Joe Biden makes hundred's of stupid statements all the time, does this mean we can hold the whole Democratic party liable and agree they are all on the same thinking plane???

Guess so, according to you!

So you think there's some miraculous God's plan to send a hurricane toward the convention? Use your head and before you talk nonsense and make yourself look like a jerk, please think, then delete!!

Oh great, just what this forum needs, another crybaby teenybopper with "I know you are but what am I" comments. Thank goodness somebody is stopping Obama from passing his brain farts. Look at the few things he has passed, how much they have cost, no positive results so you can only imagine what kind of "unfixable" mess our country would be in if they hadn't of stopped him from putting more failed Obama policies into place. Congress (republicans) have kept Obama's damage to a minimum and what damage Obama has actually done can easily be "unfunded" in 2013.
