JOBS and the ECONOMY are the campaign Issues Obama is desperately trying to avoid. Obama is hoping for a terrible storm so he can fly over and sprinkle Billions of Borrowed Dollars from China to all the Little People.

ou mean his record of stopping the death spiral of job loss? The return of our financial and auto industries? Why would he avoid that record?

Listening to the RNC right now i've heard several governors talk of how their states' economies are doing good....seems to be some disconnect in the message.

Yep. 1st time unemployment numbers show the country is losing about 400,000 Jobs a Month.

Obama Gave Billions of Tax payer dollars to the put GM and Chrysler THEN PU THEM INTO BANKRUPTCY. Then screwed the Bond Holders out of their legal claim to be paid. Then gave the company Tax Loopholes. They Pay NO TAXES NOW! Nothing like corporate Welfare and cronyism! Oh....And FORD Didn't need the Bail Out and Prospered ahead of Obama's Debacle.

Financial industry? You mean the one where there are 100's of Bank Failures annually under hussein?

Yes, let's continue talking about Obama's Record.

You're lying now.

Obama Put GM and Chrysler into Bankruptcy. They were going there anyway. Obama simply made the Tax Payer PAY FOR IT. Industries come out of Bankruptcy all the time. Only ignorant idiots equate death of a company with Bankruptcy. What does that say about you?

How did you extrapolate Job creation from Obama borrowing more from China while putting GM/Chrysler into Bankruptcy?

Ooooooh! Did you mean GM creating More Jobs in China! Ah! I get it now! Please forgive!

Actually, China bought US treasury bonds because they know they are a great, and safe investment.

You really do not understand what you parrot, do you?

lol! Obama got down on his knees, bowed and begged China to buy the Debt. If they didn't buy, the music would have stopped and Obama would have been exposed in his big red clown shoes. No. China protected itself by Buying Obama. They knew they had a puppet president in pocket the minute he cowtowed to their leaders. They also know America's Trade Imbalance favors China Big Time. They wanted to make sure Obama had stimulus money to start Solar companies that would take Obama's Money THEN MOVE TO CHINA!

Yep, let's keep talking about obama's record....

Now you're just making shit up. you lose.

It's sad that we have such poor citizens as you in this country. It is people as stupid and uninformed as you that are holding our country back, not any president or politician, it is you.

So sayeth the mynah??

Item - GM and Chrysler are businesses, not industries (try to learn the difference)

Item - Obama touted the bailouts as bankruptcy prevention, which was NOT the case. Both companies filed bankruptcy, anyway

Item - Many companies have gone through reorganization (bankruptcy) without government handouts, and emerged healthier

Item - Obama overturned bankruptcy law and precedent to screw investors while rewarding political backers (the unions)

Item - Obama's moves within the auto industry brought MASSIVE uncertainty to EVERY industry in the US, dampening the entire economy

Item - Even had (either) company been dissolved, viable assets would have been sold to the highest bidder, debt would have been restructured, and contracts renegotiated, thus keeping employees employed where applicable

Item - Both companies are still teetering, and the taxpayers are still on the hook for $100 Billion

Item - Government Motors is now producing a NON-viable product (Volt), at great expense, at the behest of their new Lord and Masters - the Feds (look up the definition of Corporatism, where government controls industries and companies, thereby being able to lay claim to any successes, and shift blame for any failures)

Sum total?
The bailouts accomplished exactly NOTHING - except waste taxpayer dollars and do irreparable harm to the entire economy.
