From my point of view he has done neither. Need the nation be reminded of the previous eight years under that administration and how jobs just went out of the country to avoid paying Americans a fair wage. Instead under that administration jobs left the country left right and center. The reason? The large corporations didn't have to pay the amount of wages to foreign workers like they did in America. Under that administration they catered to the large corporations and allowed them to ship all of the viable jobs over seas. What's worse is the corporations are still dong just that. Is it any wonder people are out of work? What made America prosperous was its population was working. Enter President Obama whom I regretfully have to admit hasn't done much better in getting the population back to work. Granted he is somewhat stifled by the opposition party however, I am not overly thrilled with his policies either. Class warfare is NOT the way to unite a country and put people back to work. The solution I would use is to bring America's jobs home and the heck with the rest of the world. Pay Americans a fair wage with reasonable benefits and let the country get back on its feet. The main thing is for the government learn how to cooperate with both sides of the aisle and quit playing politics with the people's money! Both parties are guilty and need to get their act togather!

The government cannot spend its way out of a bad economy. Get out of the way and let the people run the economy.

Right on Jim! At least there is one person out there who can see reality. It is a cinch the government can't.
