"Now this is better than expected, considering the severe storms all along the east coast are estimated to have a depressing affect on the [jobless] numbers."
Well after 14 months in office it's a little hard to blame Bush, so let's try to blame unemployment on the weather. Is he kidding? How idiotic is that? Does Obama think that Americans are THAT STUPID? What an insult!
Wake up Mr. President. During those nasty storms, you grew government jobs by over 7,000. Why hasn't the $800 Billion dollar Stimulus created FULL employment? You claim that the Stimulus worked and yet the reality of it shows otherwise. Americans aren't BLIND or stupid!
The trends are getting somewhat better, but we are still loosing jobs at an alarming rate. Fact: The US is down 4 million jobs since Obama took office. Don't try and blame that on Bush, the bad weather, FOX News, or the Republicans. When will Obama take responsibility for HIS own actions and admit that he has failed on his promise to the American public?
Things are getting worse under Obama's policies – NOT BETTER. Ask yourself this question: Are you better off now or before Obama took office?
- We don't have more jobs – we have fewer
- We don't have lower unemployment – we have a solid 9.7% (higher)
America, your alarm bell should be going off. This administration has grown by 7,000 jobs in the last month while Americans in the private sector LOST 36,000 jobs. The problem is that the government doesn't earn money. The private sector pays the taxes that help fund government positions. The government gets money for their jobs from the people who are working in the private sector. If there are less people working in the private sector, why does the government keep expanding? That's ILLOGICAL! We cannot afford this. It's unsustainable!
To add insult to injury, the newly created government jobs pay higher than the private sector jobs. The people who are paying for these high paying jobs are making a lot less. Almost 50% less! And Obama says "Now this is better than expected…". What a pompous ASS!
Feel OUR Pain
Obama, you've got to take the good with the bad. Stop blaming someone or something else. It's your responsibility to fix the problems – not make them worse. So far, you haven't! Your reckless spending and outrageous borrowing are making things worse. So what do you do? You focus on healthcare and Tax & Trade. Where are the JOBS?
Obama is a looser and he's making America into a third world country because of his lack of experience and poor leadership. He treats terrorists better than his own countrymen.
Mr. A+, look at your achievements in the last 14 months. NADA!
