Boosting the hiring of the long-term unemployed is helpful for those who have been out of work for a long time.

However, this "JOBLESS HELP" is really more of a shell game.

If there are five uemployed people for each job and ONE is hired, it is still only one job and four are still out of work. The only difference is that the ONE who gets the job was off work longer than the ones who are still out of work. Four of them are still unemployed.

President Obama seems to want to engage problems from street level or on realities terms.

So the chief economic illiterate is directing guvment to look at the "long term unemployed first when hiring. Surely they wouldn't be in that group because they are not qualified, or maybe because they enjoy collecting free stuff. Or maybe they are part of the 30% who cant pass a drug test. Maybe the "look for work" provision that Obama removed from the rules should be reinstated.

Truly, incompetence on display

Yeah we know how tenure worked out for the education system don't we. Whats wrong with looking at qualifications??? Since the people are paying we should expect no less.
So you take other peoples money and give a job to someone who you think needs it more than someone who is more qualified.???? Now I know why going to the SSA office or the Drivers license office is always so painful.

Oh great, king ohbama is going to get you a job. This coming from someone who has never worked a real job in his life. Mommy isn't going to rescue you king ohbama and the Gov't isn't either.
Whats next, super welfare for those who refuse to get a job. Or now, we will have a bunch of unqualified, uneducated applicants working Gov't jobs. Don't we have that Gov't program now?
If ohbama would get out of the way and quit putting in his absurd Gov't job killing regulations. Then America would prosper.
Impeach this turd of an IDIOT.

5 years later, what we starting to crawl now. Two faced a-hole ohbama. All talk. Typical black. Has no idea on how to get a job and sure as heck doesn't know how to create jobs.
Invited his family to the U.S. to live on welfare. I see nothing has changed, it is how blacks live. Soon all his 2nd grade educated family will be telling you what to do America.
But not right now, have to stand in line fo the free cheese. To be continued...
Taught his family members the right way, the American black way.
