No way, Obama. No investments in infrastructure
or education. Those billions of dollars belong to the "job creating" rich so they can offshore
hundreds of billions of dollars in hidden bank
accounts and create jobs in China.

Besides, having good, modern infrastructure
and education is socialistic and we can't have
that.

Anyway, the American people no longer deserve
to live in a first-class nation. We have to make
a choice between a super-rich class of Americans
or a modern, progressive country. The super rich
have won.

Thank God for conservatism.

He must be tired, but not as tired as the Republicans in
Congress who have fought tooth and nail for four years
against job creation under Obama. Over 300 silent filibusters
in the Senate to stop all Democratic attempts to turn
the economy around. The House? It belongs to the Repub-
licans. Nuff said.

And then the Republicans complain about no jobs. Guffaw!

U S A is too far behind the world tech curve to catch up plus almost all the invest dough has been siphoned off by the s--t on wallstreet. Just try to get a business loan you can afford. That is unless you're manufacturing and selling farts and air.

Further public funds for infrastructure expansion is contrary to economic health. Such brought about the bankruptcy of Detroit. The gimmick of telling people expansion of bloated government is a gimmick of a Socialist, a Communist. Democrats have already shown us for forty years such policies do not create jobs, but only unparalleled debt and undeserved pensions of outlandish size and burden. This Socialist's concept of funding education is giving free money to a created group of students incapable of rudimentary scholarship, some illiterate and destined to continue illiteracy, no matter the bought papers saying otherwise.

So, Obama does not promise economic revival, but a continued decent into increased public debt and ultimate bankruptcy for the nation.

Bush made that statement after 9/11......."as long as it takes." Bush formed the units that got bin laden, forced the intellence of FBI, CIA, Secret Service and the military to share info......Bush got the courier, who revealed the doctor and the compound..

oblumber said OK 16 hours after he was told that bin laden was in the compound.....found by Bush.

Don't bore us with the "we don't know where he is" bullshit. No smart person would say on national tv that we knew where he was hiding..three books by those involved now say the hunt went on for 10 years before the raid..........oblumber wasn't president for 10 years, ducky.

False claim Pat...you're new moniker.

Yet the republican states are whipping the blue states progressive asses in job creation..

It's not congress job to create jobs....the democrats have created the reasons jobs are going to other places...not the republicans, screwball.

Solyndra, Abound Solar, Energy Conversion Devices, BrightSource, LSP Energy, Evergreen Solar, Ener1, SunPower, Beacon Power, ECOtality, A123, Uni-Solar, Azure Dynamics, and Solar Trust. All of these "green energy" entities failed, yet Obama promised to bankrupt coal and natural gas powered power plants through taxes and regulations, as noted in a 2008 San Francisco Gate interview.

Shovel ready...epic fail...so was cash for clunkers.

The loss of jobs could be greater if you account for the amount of lost industry that moves out of the country due to higher energy prices," Professor Gabriel Calzada Alvarez of Juan Carlos University in Madrid said.

When are you going to stop the republican blame game and get it through your progressive head this bozo in the WH doesn't know what the hell he's doing??!!!

Hey pattypoop.....how come obama is closing so many embassies this week..........you said he "won the war against al queda...LMAO

President Obama's deputy national security advisor, John Brennan, confirmed that the death of bin Laden resulted from "a mosaic (of intelligence) appearing over time and by ... people who have been following bin Laden for many, many years."

After all, Bush did say, "I am truly not that concerned about (bin Laden)." President Obama, however, said much the same thing, assuming -- it turns out incorrectly -- that bin Laden "was in a cave somewhere."

Oops..........

Even if you cook the numbers with different statistical spices, you won't come close to the half-have-failed claim.

^^^Attention wrexas dumbass.^^^

By one energy department calculation, only 1 percent of more than 1,300 federally funded renewable-energy companies had failed as of late last year.

Only a very small percentage of companies receiving such funds have failed; the far-more-numerous successes have been largely ignored.

Ignored by the ignorant t-deads. hahahahahahahaha

Speaking of using the same lies and not having anything new, have you heard this one?

Obama is saying job growth won't come from gimmicks.
Took him over 4 years to figure this out, so we must assume he's pretty dense.
After all he's been focusing like a laser on jobs all this time, hasn't he?
You do recall his shovel ready jobs program, don't you.
You do remember his green jobs programs, don't you.

Don't you recollect that jobs program he had that really worked? Me neither. All Obama has is gimmicks, evidently.
