No, you hate to see America thrive, don't you?
It goes against your political superstition, so you hate it.

Time to change your beliefs. The LIES that FOXLIES tells you are anti-American. They have made you hate your own country, and our success, and recovery.

You are like the "Southern Baptists" who created their own perverted religion, so that they could keep humans as slaves. BUT your life is now a lie.

Sorry for you.

but, you go right ahead and spew your blind partisan bullshit...no one would recognize you if you didn't.

Boo Hoo, the economy is coming back. Can't hit Obama over the head with Bush's ruins.

Well, good luck wacking him by opposing him on medical insurance for the middle class, and favoring FREELOADERS over families.

Any job is a good job.

Unless it's a non-military government or Union job, then it's parasitic and against the interest of the people.

It listed construction in the catergory along with technical and scientific so it has along way to to meet Obama's 5,000,000 . The private sector was about 2.4M with construction being the biggest followed by the other 2 lumped together for about 700,000 in those 2 catergories.

Since this is the first survey nobody can compare it to the years 2000, 2005 with the 2010 numbers.
