Bush ignored the impacts of 9/11, and two hurricanes, and missed the opportunity to mitigate this economic downturn.Bush deliberately ignored this impending economy destroying sunami in his last two years. Bush should either aplogize, or proclaim that he intentionally sought to facilitate this downturn.Bush shouldn;’t just hide in the shadows, pretending to be infantile–we know better.

I’m looking for work for over a year now. I’ll wash dishes or sweep floors. Unemployment is going to help pay my rent. So if you have some work for me I’ll stop taking money from the war on what ever it is this week or day

Hopefully the jobless rates will be lowered soon, but not likely. Isn’t really Obama’s fault, there is little he can do and he had done them…..

The last time unemployment was this bad was 1983. Who was president then? Reagan. How many years had he been president by then?At least under Obama the general economic numbers are trending up, even if job loss has continued for the short term as predicted repeatedly by the White House and economists.Things might have been better if Hank Paulson and Congress (both Dems and Repubs) would’ve forced the banks to use some of their bailout to extend credit to individuals and businesses, but as usual, the Bush administration screwed up badly.All of you who claim we’re heading straight towards socialism and think any White House push a button and change long term problems in the economy whenever they choose should (1) actually study economics (2) study up on global history — we’re very, very, very far away from anything resembling socialism, even with healthcare and (3) try reading multiple international news outlets rather than just relying on conservative radio and Fox.As it is, spouting off about socialism makes you sound scared sh*tless about something you don’t seem to understand.

Only this time, when the inevitable tipping point was reached, the top 1% made sure their bets were covered and the bottom 99% ate the looses, not the 1% at the top. So now we have idiots waving signs in front of the Capitol and shouting “no to socialism”, led by the very people who brought them this disaster. Calling these people sheep is a compliment. They are cattle.

This generation seems to want their kids to have it worse then they did.After all it’s the jkids that are going to be paying for all this.

That’s the sentiment of a majority in this country who do not believe in the policies being forced on us by the current bunch in power.What strikes me is that the president took credit for numbers suggesting we are coming out of this recession due to the policies put in place, but blames the previoius administration when things don’t work out so well.Well the economy isn’t exactly coming out of anything, so he can’t have it both ways. Either it is his economy or it isn’t.He campaigned hard in Virginia and NJ blaming Bush for the problems in those states. Well, his guys were handed knock out punches when he used those arguments. There were even campaign signs in NJ that said “OBAMA CORZINE”. The point here is that people are sick and tired of his overused blame the other guy BS.

I am a recruiter in the IT space and trust me, there a many $50-120K jobs out there going unfilled.Why? My opinion is because Socialistic/Liberal handouts make folks complacent with not working or not striving to learn and get higher skilled jobs. Why put the effort in going to school get a 50 hr. per week job when you can sit at home and get free handouts?
