You keep mentioning LANDSLIDE elections. I dont remember any landslides. Obama beat McCain by %7.2 and beat Romney by %3.8. Hardly a landslide considering Reagan won in 1984 by %18.2, Nixon by %23.1 in '72, now those where landslides. But Im gonna go out on a limb here and guess that your total and complete ignorance and political bias is getting in the way of you acknowledging actual facts. Pesky facts. What was I thinking???

Your attempt to enrage only shows your how weak your actual feelings are for your empty suit. To bad words won't puff him up. He won't even make a good scarecrow.

Yes, they prove the definition of insanity is timeless and forever accurate for the Liar in Chief.

With the bungled launch of HealthCare.gov and the Affordable Care Act causing millions to lose their health-care coverage, Ted Cruz urged the president to use Tuesday’s State of the Union address to apologize to the American people.

“For the State of the Union, one of the things President Obama really ought to do is look in the TV camera and say to the over 5 million Americans all across this country who’ve had their health insurance canceled because of Obamacare, to look in the camera and say,‘I’m sorry — I told you if you like your health-insurance plan, you can keep it,’” the Texas senator said on Face the Nation on Sunday.“‘I told you if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor, and that wasn’t true — I’m sorry.’”

Rebound? Millions left the work force and are no longer counted in the employment numbers. 1.6 million still need unemployment checks. More people then ever before getting some type of government handout. Some rebound

So your claim is no Democrat authors and zero Democrats voted for the Patriot Act. Interesting. Can you back up your claim Skippy.

Further you must believe it is Republicans fault too for Obama extending Pat Act, not once, but twice through 2015. After he had made campaign promises not to extend the Pat Act. Not too mention all the amendments that Obama and Democrats added to Pat Act.

You have been schooled. You're dismissed moron.

238,000 additional jobs? So, in 7 months ALL those 1.6 million will be able to find work.

Amazing!

Democrats should spend their time TIGHTENING UP enforcement of illegal immigration and then NOBODY will be out of work.

Why waste their time on unemployment benefits, when they could actually be doing something good for the ENTIRE country.

But, since giving away free money BUYS votes, they will fight for this tooth and nail.

U.S. ADD'S 238,000 JOBS, MORE PROOF OF REBOUND....AP(1-9-14) Washington -- A private survey shows U.S. businesses added the most jobs in a year, in December, powered by a big gain in construction. The figures are the latest evidence that the economy gained momentum at the end of 2013.....Payroll processor, ADP said Wednesday that companies added 238,000 full-time jobs in December, up slightly from 229,000 the previous month. November's figures were revised higher....The report showed higher gains in higher paying jobs.....Construction firms hired 48,000 additional workers in December,the most since 2006. And manufacturers added 19,000 positions. The companies in retail, transportation and utilities also gained 47,000 jobs....The ADP number's cover only private businesses and often diverge from the government's more comprehensive report. But both reports have shown a solid pickup in hiring since the summer......

Unemployment does not need to be expanded if all these jobs were added. Or are these made up figures from Obama that are LIES? lIKE HE DID WHEN HE WAS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT AND GOT THE FIGURES CHANGED ON NEW JOBS?

You are absolutely correct.

IF all these jobs were added there would be no need to expand unemployment beyond the normal limits.

They just need to be more forthcoming with the truth.

Either the economy is getting better and there is no need to expand unemployment OR the economy is still in the crapper and Uncle Sam needs to rescue the poor victims of our country's lack of competent leadership.

If only they could make up their minds <LOL>
