Your tax dollars, hard at work!

Planned Child Prostitution:

"Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey a clinic manager was willing to aid and abet a pimp who ran an underage prostitution ring. Planned Parenthood’s cooperation with sexual abuse is not new."

Planed Parenthood?

You mean the organization beloved by leftists that was founded as a program for the practice of eugenics?

You mean the organization beloved by leftists that even today continues killing minority babies at a far higher rate than whites?

THAT Planned Parenthood?

At least the GOPasaurs are "focused like a laser" on jobs, jobs, jobs. Once again the republicans fall back on abortion, denying gays equal rights, and making sure the poor stay poor.

After an agreement was reached to extend the Bush tax cuts, President Obama promised us "laser like focus on jobs". Obama and the Dems had TWO FREAKING YEARS to laser focus on jobs....well hows THAT working out for ya?

Yep, all we got from the Dems were JOB KILLING LEGISLATIONS! The Republicans have been in majorty in the House for a MONTH AND A HALF and the slimmy Dems are bellowing for jobs! Dems illustrate the height of hypocracy!

Well let's see, the Obama has been CREATING jobs for the past 2 years, unlike the Bush who LOST jobs every month for the 8 years before that.

Seems like the Dems are doing a better job than the GOPasaurs.

By tabling the "Cap and Trade" bill, the Republicans, using the Democrat theory of logic, "SAVED" 10 MILLION JOBS!

WOOOOOOOOHOOOOO!

President Barack Obama has repeatedly claimed that his economic stimulus bill will "create or save" 3.5 million new jobs by 2011, including 600,000 jobs "created or saved" by the end of this summer. It is impossible to hold the President accountable to these promises because there is no way of measuring "jobs saved."

Meaningless Promise

The economy has continued to deteriorate since President Obama took office.

Analysts have also criticized the promise to create or save millions of jobs as being deliberately amor­phous. While the Bureau of Labor Statistics mea­sures job creation in great detail, no government statistics measure "jobs saved."

Obama is a total idiot, with a following for total morons!

Sorry, but you'll have to do better, if your plan is to convince me that Obama has created ANY jobs. I find it difficult filtering fact from your BS!

More jobs have been created in the past 2 years than the previous 8 years before that. If Obama gets the blame for everything that goes wrong, then he also gets the credit for everything that goes right. Just like happened with Bush.

The reality of course is that NO politician creates a single job, except for the number of staff they hire directly.

My original complaint was that the GOPasaurs ran in 2010 on creating jobs & fixing the economy, and yet all they've done so far is focus on abortion, gay rights, and denying services to the poor.

The only program that I am aware of is the one put in place by your "god" ronald reagan. At the urging of his good friend, donald rumsfeld, he made it mandatory to put msg (aspartame) to use as a "preservative" in most all of our prepared foods. http://aspartamekills.com/

Um, the topic is Planned Parenthood, dopey.

And it's not surprising that yet another ignorant leftist is "unaware" of the facts.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was an advocate of eugenics, and Planned Parenthood still kills more non-white babies than white.

As a conservative I disagree with you all the time here. Until today (except for the name calling stuff- just not helpful, you know?)

I do not think the jobs numbers that the stimulus supposedly created can be supported without fuzzy math. BUT the whole reason the Dems took such a huge tumble in November is because they were all about ideology, not pragmatism. I see the new crop of Republicans doing the same thing. I am ambivalent about abortion, have no problem with gays in the military or getting married. The cutting off increases in services to the "poor" I am more supportive of because that very statement is subjective and you always get more of what you subsidize. The point is, though, that none of these politicos has the nads to make the big changes that we must make if we want to avoid the pitfalls of an out of control deficit, and more throwing around of ideology to counter the other party doing the same is NOT good for this country. I do think they did a good job forcing the extension of the Bush Tax cuts, but I wish the bill hadn't been so loaded with pork for things like Ethanol. And unemployment insurance cannot become welfare, period. I know some conservatives will disagree, saying that these are the things they wanted from Republicans- to erase what the Dems have done, and the Dems did do a very poor job in my opinion, but when will we get people in power who are willing to do the tough things that nobody wants? Maybe I just answered my own question- never, as long as Main Street at all levels is unwilling.

Can you honestly say that this isn't how ALL politicians work? I remember when Paul Tsongas was running in the primaries against Clinton and he said, "I am not running for Santa Claus". I have never respected anything a politician said more. Of course, that kind of honesty got him nowhere- a real shame. I think Obama is the worst I have seen about that- he said anything and everything to different groups of people that they wanted to hear, and viola, well, you know the rest of the story.
