    The real unemployment rate is still around 15%.

    So when is Obama's next meeting about the unemployment crisis?  I'd like to watch it on CSPAN.

    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      Blame the Republicans, where blame belongs for not passing Jobs legislation.

        He needs to start living up to them.  There's much he can do in the Executive Branch, particularly where unfair trade, etc. are concerned.

        Unfortunately, those are under the auspices of Treasury, where he just appointed another underling who supports shipping jobs overseas.

      I guess you think Obama can snap his fingers and create jobs.  You seem to invest him with magic powers he's refusing to use.

      We were losing 800k amonth, now.were gaining.  Much better.

      But please, proceed with your pissing.  It will only become more evident to everyone what yr agenda is.

        he can do within the Executive Branch, especially where unfair trade practices are concerned.

        He also has the power to issue regulations to government contractors and subcontractors about using domestic labor. We've been waiting several years for him to do that, no luck so far.
