Obama wrecks havoc on all American cities. He'll give Billions to the Muslim Brotherhood while these US cities wilt and die.

Obama Bankrupted GM and then ordered the Judge to give them TAX FREE CORP STATUS for years while they still owe the Tax Payer 50 Billion!

I can't think of anything Obama's done that hasn't directly hurt our country or backfired in his face. It's time to send him back to wherever he came from. We cannot afford 4 more years of his mistakes and LIES. Enough is Enough.

Towns that recover through Capitalism are free. Towns that "recover" through Socialism are slaves.

INSTANTLY the thread is highjacked by a reTHUGlican troll. Is there any thread you scumbags won't take over and use to attack Obama?

I can't WAIT until he beats Mittens and Boy Wonder, and you all go home crying. I CAN'T WAIT!!:)

Evangelical Rightie Christers want a Christian Taliban America. But they won't get it.

GE sends jobs to China. Where's Obama? Immelt is Obamas jobs creator. Why is he creating jobs in China? Why isn't the president stopping this?

Most of the jobs in 'right to work' states offer slave wages with no benefits.

"Lower-paying jobs, with median hourly wages from $7.69 to $13.83, accounted for just 21% of the job losses during the recession. But they've made up about 58% of the job growth from the end of the recession in late 2009 through early 2012."

Obama's "recovery": low paying (dare I say, slave wages?) without benefits, nationwide, not right to work states....

I agree he shouldn't look to a corporate thug like Immelt for help, but note that the article says jobs aren't being lost HERE:

"...none of the 150 staffers in the Milwaukee-area facility will lose jobs or be transferred."

And that Immelt is "...a self-described Republican.." ;)

Obama doesn't create jobs or send them anywhere. Save your outrage for corporate America, which DOES control what jobs are created or lost, and where.

Duh.

Obama: outsourcer in chief
http://www.forbes.com/sites/paulroderickgrego...
After the bailout by Obama, GM has 122k jobs overseas, 12k in Mexico, 12k in Canada.. 75k in the US. Two thirds of GM's jobs are in other lands. Only one in five cars is manufactured in the States. Mexico does quite well on the American taxpayer back. BRIC countries are doing just fine, too. Forgive me if I find Obama funding their good fortune with my money unappealing.

Oddly, Romney claims he'll created "16 million of 'em." He won't, and neither did Obama.

Mostly Obama talks of jobs created during his Presidency, which is somewhat more honest.

So, how many of those were actually outsourced by Obama?

Burger flipping...swell.

But he promised millions more of good paying jobs. Where are they? He spent a trillion bucks and got burger flippers, many who, btw, had decent jobs before Obama stuffed the pockets of public employees and union bosses.
