I just received my tax return for 2011 back from the IRS. It puzzles me!!! They are questioning how many dependents I claimed. I guess it was because of my response to the question: "List all dependents?" I replied: 12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads; 42 million unemployed on food stamps, 2 million people in over 243 prisons; Half of Mexico; and 535 persons in the U.S. House and Senate." 1 useless President. Evidently, this was NOT an acceptable answer.
I KEEP ASKING MYSELF, WHO DID I MISS?

I am pretty sure that Bain and Romney had something to do with all these transactions and I am certain that Obama knows of a scenario where it can all be blamed on Bush.
#12646 Jul 6, 2012
Bill and Hillary.
#12647 Jul 6, 2012
Yes, he'll try to look back and blame Bush but then tell us in a commercial to "Look Forward."
Obama's slogan should be more like, "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain."

Obama is America's most ineffective, hypocritical and divisive president in our nations short history. He has done more damage to our country in 3 1/2 short years than any other president. Some of his damage may never be undone like the socialization of our healthcare which might lead to socialization of our whole country. The racial division he has caused has probably set America back decades in the healing process between blacks and whites while introducing tensions between socioeconomic classes as well. Other things like the debt will take decades of fiscal discipline that I'm not sure we possess anymore. I hope this presidency is a lesson to America to not put their trust in politicians to fix all of our problems because that simply cannot be done. We the people are responsible for America's rise to the greatest country in the world, it was we the people's fault for giving politicians so much power, and it will be we the people that will fix this mess we are in if it is to be fixed.

Five ways the GOP has sabotaged job growth:
Filibustering the American Jobs Act. Last October, Senate Republicans killeda jobs bill proposed by President Obama that would have pumped $447 billion into the economy. Multiple economic analysts predicted the bill would add around two million jobs and hailed it as defense against a double-dip recession. The Congressional Budget Office also scored it as a net deficit reducer over ten years, and the American public supported the bill.
2. Stonewalling monetary stimulus. The Federal Reserve can do enormous good for a depressed economy through more aggressive monetary stimulus, and by tolerating a temporarily higher level of inflation. But with everything from Ron Paul’s anti-inflationary crusade to Rick Perry threatening to lynch Chairman Ben Bernanke, Republicans have browbeaten the Fed into not going down this path. Most damagingly, the GOP repeatedly held up President Obama’s nominations to the Federal Reserve Board during the critical months of the recession, leaving the board without the institutional clout it needed to help the economy.
3. Threatening a debt default. Even though the country didn’t actually hit its debt ceiling last summer, the Republican threat to default on the United States’ outstanding obligations was sufficient to spook financial markets anddo real damage to the economy.
4. Cutting discretionary spending in the debt ceiling deal. The deal the GOP extracted as the price for avoiding default imposed around $900 billion in cuts over ten years. It included $30.5 billion in discretionary cuts in 2012 alone, costing the country 0.3 percent in economic growth and 323,000 jobs, according to estimates from the Economic Policy Institute. Starting in 2013, the deal will trigger another $1.2 trillion in cuts over ten years.
5. Cutting discretionary spending in the budget deal. While not as cataclysmic as the debt ceiling brinksmanship, Republicans also threatened a shutdown of the government in early 2011 if cuts were not made to that year’s budget. The deal they struck with the White House cut $38 billion from food stamps, health, education, law enforcement, and low-income programs among others, whilesparing defense almost entirely.
And when it comes to Mitt Romney, economists agree that his plans will actually make things worse and could cause another recession
#12651 Jul 7, 2012
You're assuming those things would have actually increased job growth and done what the Obama administration promised and what your so-called "multiple economic analysts" said it would. Considering how his other failed policies fared, it was inspiring to finally see conservatives stand up to the scare tactics and lies of liberals and stop their madness.
#12652 Jul 7, 2012
The other trillions of dollars thrown at these problems have brought about full employment. Had Obama's plan been implemented fully, so many jobs would have been created that we would not have had a sufficient work force and some of the stimulus money could have been used to create global jobs.
#12653 Jul 7, 2012
Full employment? I didn't realize that 8.2% unemployment meant "full employment." I know that the obama administration has us living in an era of lowered expectations, but that's ridiculous. You can no more say that his failed policies have worked then someone can say that had we done nothing at all, we'd be better off. Anyone who believes what you just said is either completely ignorant or a willing perpetrator of that ignorance.
#12654 Jul 7, 2012
LMAO, I don't think your buddy understood your sarcasm.
#12655 Jul 7, 2012
Sometimes a person just wastes a good line, some times a person just gets wasted.
#12656 Jul 7, 2012
Given the record of Obama's "promises" I can't see why anyone would let him have another dime of taxpayer money to do anything with.

#12657 Jul 7, 2012
it is no big secret that the republicans re tryng to tank the economic system so they can get thier own flip flopping fool elected, congress and the senate have passd no jobs bills or anything that could help the economy since the mid term election. We the American people are paying the price not the super rich fat Cat republicans.
#12658 Jul 7, 2012
If the don't handle their treachery any better than you spell and have mastered the English language, Obama has nothing to worry about.
#12659 Jul 7, 2012
1. When the president's last explination for one of his failed stimuluses was "Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected." I can see why the Republicans did all they could to stop another failure of an attempt by Obama.
2. Ben Bernanke was appointed by Obama so don't blame that on the Republicans. The Democrats still have 2 of the 3 legislative branches in their control.
3. Everyone, including the financial markets, knew the debt ceiling was going to be raised.
4. You and everyone else know the cuts were not real cuts but rather cuts against future spending. We are $16 trillion in debt because of real spending and to get out of this hole there will have to be trillions in real cuts to real spending.
5. Can't believe you even brought this up. You know that by the time all was said and done the actual cuts to current spending came out to be $30 million. The Republicans got screwed on that deal. That comes out to 1/53,333 of what we owe. Heck, even if they had gotten all $38 billion that still would have only been 1/421 of what we owe. Not near enough. The rest came out to be in future spending just like the rest of the cuts.
The government doesn't generate any revenue but rather depends on tax dollars from its citizens who work for businesses that do create revenue. A governments financial health is only as good as the financial health of the businesses within that country. This is a fact that you can't get around so the strength of businesses in America needs to be priority #1. Yes, that means there will be some very wealthy people but that is an unavoidable byproduct of successful businesses. It also means that the rest of the population will have more disposable income as well. A government can't tax and spend it's way to a prosperous country.

Everyone of these would either directly create jobs or ease regulations so companies would hire again. The end result would be money in the public's pockets and not the politicians. Looks like Harry Reid seems to be the problem and not the Republicans. If you have a problem with these bills then maybe you need to come the the realization that it's not that the Republicans are not trying to pass jobs bills but rather that you just don't like any of them and that's your problem. Please list all of the jobs bills the democrats have brought before the house that have been killed. Feel free to use as many posts as necessary. You probably won't need more than a couple of lines though.
