these all war criminals are really funny. How does he want to create these jobs if ruling politicians of usa spend majority of budget for wars and speculations. It is rather beginning of end of usa.
And people of USA it is time to realise that another president - Ron Paul can change it. Voting for such people like till now- bushes, clintons, obama will ruin the country. Change now or never because it will be no such possibility later.

C'mon Bill. Like we are going to listen to some guy that can't even control his wife. Also, let's not forget the truth - you increased teh national debt by 28%(at the time).

Clinton took office with $4,188,092,107,183.60 of debt. He increased the debt by $1,539,684,631,121.04 to $5,727,776,738,304.64

Load of shyte.

So you think "business" will act morally and ethically if we take away all the regulations?

Put down the GOP-teabag Kool-aid. Go get a glass of clean water...OH wait! There might not be any if we had not regulated - thru the EPA - businesses dumping their wastes in waterways, etc...

My guess is this idiot has no historical perspective whatsoever to go by...he thinks Businesses are all a moral/ethical entity by default. That they had to be forced to do the right things by the public and environment...

How come no one mentions that since 9-11 the Intelligence Industry, a several billion dollar industry, has spawned hundreds of thousands of jobs in the private sector...? Which means that Govt can create jobs.

At least the big dog knows it. Jobs, full employment with living wage jobs, will solve most of the problems in this nation.

Boy, all those union people were good enough to build weapons in thos auto factories, to help fight Hitler. Now, our traitorous GOPers are handing it all over to the German auto companies. What the heck did we fight for? Unions are not a dirty word, traitorous Republicans ARE!

United Auto Workers (UAW), is a labor union which represents workers in the United States and Puerto Rico, and formerly in Canada. Founded as part of the left-wing CIO in the 1930s, the UAW grew rapidly from 1936 to the 1950s. Under the leadership of Walter Reuther it played a major role in the liberal wing of the Democratic party, including the civil rights and anti-Communist movements.

I GUESS IN YOUR CASE IGNORANCE IS BLISS. JUST SHOWS WHERE UNIONS STAND RIGHT COMMIE. UNION WORKERS ARE NOTHING BUT LAZY OVER PAID WORKERS WHO MAKE A SECOND HAND PRODUCT.

OMG you are one libtard dipshit! The unions did not have anything to do with the productivity during WWII. It was patriotism and a 100% focus on Americans supporting and winning the war. The CIO joined with the american communists to block any type on involvment in the war and there were several labor union strikes during the war which forced FDR to inact the first of its kind, an anti-strike legistaltion, which banned any type of strike to keep the war effort moving! You liberals really need to open a book other than saul alinsky's rules for radicals. Your post is nothing but liberal, socialist propoganda.

Focus on stimulating the economy??? That's what President Obama already has tried to do. The problem with Keynesian economics, however, is that the government can only put into the economy money that it first takes out -- or that it borrows or prints by fiat, thus artificially inflating the economy.
