If the President's policies created jobs instead of killing them we wouldn't need to extend unemployment every time we turn around. Put their clients on welfare, but stop making a career out of unemployment.

Good point. On the positive side, Obama performed the miracle of making Jimmy Carter look good by comparison.
Obama can count on my support.. for anyone running for Congress who states that they are willing to impeach him.
Obama is the worst pile of crap in the White House since the flush toilet was installed.
BUCK YOU FARRACK!

Looks like finally the lying has to stop, because Americans will not believe a word out of Obama's lying mouth. He may as well talk to the wall. No one is listening except a handful of malcontents from the Carter era. Even James Carville is calling Obama a liar. Carville, the Democrats best friend, and ally. But then Carville always was a Hillary guy. He will see to it the truth about Obama comes out this time so his friend Hillary looks better. She can't beat Uncle Joe, but she will give it the old College try.

Yawn, yes we know, Obama is just an over achiever that never knows anything about anything until it's time to run in for the photo op.

Maybe we should only give a President one term. By the time they are reelected they are totally ineffective, and out of ideas. Plus their scandals are catching up to them, and they are busy trying to save their behinds from public ridicule.

This is precisely my thoughts on this. After focusing like a laser on jobs for over 4 years, Obama seems to be admitting his policies don't work. But, rather than ask for help on increasing employment, he is begging for funds to feed the unemployed. Of course, if he asked for help on jobs, he realizes, the elimination of Obamacare would be one of the first recommendations. That, he will never go for. He'd rather delay the inevitable by granting delays to Big Business so the full effects won't be felt until after the election. It's his only hope to save the Dems from another shellacking.

boner and the teahadists said jobs were their priority, yet haven't sent over a clean jobs bill since making up that lie in '10. 48 attempts to repeal the ACA law will do that. Where's all the repeal talk now that the website is up and running, people are signing up and teahadism has been exposed as a useless one-trick pony, once again?

Where is the greasy canukian hiding today?

As you've been told by many but are too stupid to realize, it's not congress job to create "jobs" bills. Lower taxes and regualtion, get the frivolous liberal lawsuits stopped, there will be plenty of jobs.

The ACA law is crashing on it's own, youth are REFUSING to sign up, hispanics are disgusted with it.....hahahahahaha where's the old hippy peelosi these days?

What do you mean by "clean jobs bill"? Could it be a bill that gives you what you want without having anything you don't want? That sounds like "all or nothing".

Consider this: perhaps a problem with job creation is that businesses, small and big, are reluctant to bear the increased costs of a job due to Obamacare. Those costs are still unknown, as Obama continues to modify its implementation by fiat. The costs to big business have been delayed for a year but have not gone away. These costs are still unknown as Obama continue to rule on whims and fancies. We've already seen how businesses and state/local governments have eliminated jobs due to increased costs due to Obamacare. We've already seen how small businesses have reduced hours because of Obamacare. It seems to me that the Republicans have been offering solutions. I don't hear anything from the Democrats, though, except pleas to cover the problem by extending payments to the idle.

The tax cuts created more jobs than shovel ready, cash for clunkers, green energy taxpayer funded jokes and anything else the community orgaizer has tried. Oblumbercare is costing more jobs than those other failures combined.

One republican led state has created more jobs than all 49 others..hahahahahahaha

You're a joke.

"Hispanics are no different than anyone else, at a minimum they are looking for honesty. Without honesty as a base, ideology is irrelevant. It should be apparent to every single person on this planet that Obama defines dishonesty. No matter what the issues are, his utter lack of integrity trumps everything else."

The President's policies are not conducive to creating jobs. The Keystone Oil project would create jobs, but he doesn't want that, he wants as many Americans on the dole as possible.
