“I think the mayor of LA needs to jump off her high horse, get off her a$$ and come down here and live right on the border. Join us in the city that sits just seconds away from the biggest border city on the US / Mexico border. You may think twice before start pointing any fingers. There are legal immigrants in a large number living right here. Why should they not get a chance for a job before an illegal immigrant? The Unemployment rate for Hispanics is over the average. That in itself is disheartened. Like your friend in the Whitehouse....all talk no action.”

“Funny how quickly the Administration turns the stage to social issues when the economy is killing the nation. Wake up people. You are being fooled. Look at the timing. I am not offended with his decision but, I am offended how he went about it and how is using the American people to promote his agenda at the cost of the failing economy.”

“Bush has been out of office for over three and a half years Obama wanted this Job. He asked for it. He knew what he walked into. Now it is time he takes some responsibility and have some integrity. Do his job. He is not. Look at the economy. You all have time to type here. Do you have jobs? I don't but my insurance has gone up, gas is up no end in site.”

sdesign on May 11, 2012 at 17:05:12

“Did you ask yourself this question? How come the cost of gas, insurance is higher and I have no job, when those same companies are making record profits? Maybe you should ask that they pay less in taxes on those profits, so you can have a job. The President can't do that for you.”

REDSTATEREFUGEE on May 11, 2012 at 17:03:50

“As you may recognize, any President cannot enact postivie changes all by himself. It is folks like you, who voted in a Republican House, who ultimately are to blame. Did you really think that the Repug Congressmen and women actually cared one whit about what happens to most average Americans?”

meritocracy on May 11, 2012 at 17:02:47

“The Economy stunk and continues to stink because of Bush created and GOP embraced policies. Regarding the stimulus, Mr. Obama's economists' thought, to a person, that the stimulus package needed to be much larger, perhaps 2 or 3 times larger, and funded with a surtax on millionaires and billionaires--good luck getting that past Koch Bro lapdogs like Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, and Eric Cantor. Yet, despite its small size, the stimulus did produce positive results, per non-partisan CBO scoring. As to the growth of the deficit, clear the Fox Fog from your head and recall that Mr. Obama was honest enough to put Mr. Bush's wars and unfunded Big Pharma Medicaid-D Giveaway on the books, thereby distorting the growth in the deficit on his watch. Job growth/creation, although slow, has already outpaced the entire 8 year reign of George the Decider, and would be greater had Congressional Republicans not declined to represent their constituents, rather than their corporate benefactors. If you want to see America become a third world country, then by all means, support the re-installation of another administration of GOP plutocrats and oligarchs with no allegiance to anything but themselves and their personal bank accounts. Have a nice day.”

“If you are talking about your health insurance, Obama nor his health care bill has absolutely nothing to do with your rates going up.

As for gas prices - hey, dude, they are going down.

So now what is your beef?”

“Your insurance raising your rates has absolutely nothing to do with the Healthcare Reform bill. They do it every year. But the last two years, they have really upped them. Why?

Because of the uninsured who have to rely on emergency rooms for their basic health needs.

Everyone should have health insurance. Not just you.”

“Really? He was elected senator from Illinois. his campaign took down the favorite from the Clinton machine, Hillary.

He got more votes than any other president in history.

Obama has had to deal with a near depression where nearly 8,000,000 jobs were lost. this is more than the five prior recessions combined.

He is managed to keep us from going into a depression and created 4.2 million private-sector jobs.

Facts hurt. Thisman has played the worst set of cards Ever dealt to a post war President very well”

LoyalDem4646 on Dec 20, 2011 at 23:27:18

“You have no argument because for 8 years corporations got what they wanted and only produced 3 million jobs compared to 23 millions with Clinton. The problem is those Bush tax cuts which will expire in 2012 and everybody should have a good understanding of why the government has to spend to create jobs. Even I agree we need to stop borrowing and use taxes to pay down the debt and create jobs.”

“I think they mean..from Obama " Goodbye homeless while I jet off to Hawaii and have a great vacation". The jobless rates were up before the GOP controlled the house. Check your stats. Don't place blame were it is not warranted. The White House had to extend when the Dems controlled both house and Senate. Again, check your facts before you listen to the masses.”

“He was supposed to leave on the 17th and he's still in DC. It is unknown at this point whether he will leave or not. The payroll tax cuts did not exist when the Dems controlled both houses and although they have the majority in the Senate they do not have a fillibuster-proof majority. Check your facts. Yes jobless rates were up. They started their rise under the Bush administration.”
