Why doesn't Obama just work on creating more jobs instead of creating more unemployment.

Because he has no experience in those areas.

Really, 5 yearsis not enough. This President is an idiot. Along with unemployment comes welfare. Right up a black Presidents alley. This jacass ohbama would rather have people kept on unemployment than work for it.
This is why ohbamacare is a failure and he is a loser. We need a REAL MAN as President not some black who hasn't worked a day in his life. Or some biatch like hilliary!
STUPID Americans will keep right on voting democrap. Why? I have no idea what the uneducated will do.

Rather than call for extending unemployment benefits, why won't Obama simply ask Reid to start considering the jobs bills he gets from the House?

Why can't we give them an Unemployment check, and they can do so much volunteer work depending on how much money we give them. Say 10 volunteer hours for each $100, in the check. There are Government day care centers, Hospital, any number of office help needed. That way they could get a check, and learn a vocation at the same time, This way it is like pissing down a rat hole.

It's pretty bad when the person responsible for getting people jobs has to beg on his hands and knees to extend unemployment benefits.

The next 3 years will go by quickly. We can make a difference in 2014, and 2016 so Hillary can see what a difference it makes. Obama has been marginalized as far as whatever h e wants to do outside of Obamascam. He will likely play around with that for awhile. It will keep him busy, and amused.

The President of the United States actually isn't responsible for finding people jobs. That never has been part of the job description. The unemployed are responsible for finding themselves a job.

Obviously you are not ready to discuss politics yet. Just clean up your basement room like your momma told you too and go back to your video games where you just might actually have some knowledge.

The president IS responsible for policies that either create jobs or lose them.....guess which one Obama has been successful with?
I would say that his current desperation and pleading for more unemployment benefits for American's makes it pretty clear how Obama's polices have effected this country.
I love that he now wants to turn the subject into "income equality" and as far from Obamacare as he can run. He must know something about how to make money...after all, when he went into office he wasn't even worth 1 million...now he is worth 12 Million!!! Perhaps we should ask him how he did it. Of course he probably is paying a hefty sum to keep it on the down low like everything else about his personal life so we will probably never know. Gotta love this "most transparent administration in history" huh?!!!!

That's pretty high unemployment for a country with barely five million population.

The President creates policies that can help add jobs, or like Obamascam, kill jobs.

You can't stand the truth, because like all the people who rely on government for the very food they eat you can't stand the fact the free ride has to end some time. We already have more people laying around waiting for their freebies, then we have people paying taxes to take care of them. The war on poverty is over. You lost.
