    McCain's manager says Palin had talents. What on earth were they? She would be a catastrophe for sure. Is the Republican party now so lame that she could become a nominee?

    Under The Republican Rule if they were incharge the UNEMPLOYMENT FIGURE would have been close to 19.80%. Think about it. Thank God for the Democrats.

    I just checked, the worst the unemployment rate has ever been in the US since 1940 is 10.8%. If not for Obama’s heroic stimulus efforts that created and saved 2 million jobs, our unemployment rate would now be over 11.1% (current 15.1 million unemployed divided by 9.8% = 154 million employable. 17.1 million that would have been unemployed divided by 154 million employable =11.1%).

    If not for the heroics of Obama, the US would have seen the worst unemployment levels in our history. Obama has saved (or created) the collapse of our nation.

    Thank you Messiah.

    EVERYONE who complains about Sarah kuddah is someone who didn't get "enough" of her....

    after all, she is not available to anyone and everyone – you know? So what if you are the campaign manager -huh?? Bush can have me – he is influential and get things done for her and I asked Todd and he's OK with it too, Cheney is tooooo old – Cantor / Boehner had me...

    We who are old enough, remember the Twin Recessions of '81 & '82 when Ronald Reagan was president.

    Recessions take time to run their course. Now is the time for Congress to implement some tough Financial legislations to secure our banks and Wall Street from the greedy schmucks who brought our Nation to its knees!

    Considering that when President Obama took Office, we were losing, 700,000 jobs per month. This is good news.

    WE WILL RETURN TO PROSPERITY AMERICA!

    To the wingnuts who bash Carter: No attacks on American soil during his entire presidency. Bush,on the other hand, less than nine months and we were attacked.

    The only employment you going to get from Obama is Welfare.

  14. Dont blame me

    Tim – you sir are an idiot.

    85% of the stimulus package isn't even slated to start to be spent until the summer of 2010 so that the democRATs can claim all of the good that it has done.

    Obama's policies have made the recession worse that it should have been. Who is it that hires people? Businesses that's who. And Obama's policies of uncertaincy has made the business community jittery and unable to plan for the future. So what do they do? The cut spending, they cut hours, they cut employees, and the are going to wait until there is some direction before they start hirign again.

    Get ready, thanks to Obama, things are going to get worse before they get any better.

    Anbody that took economics 101 know that, and obviously the Obama adminstration SKIPPED that class.

    @Tim, even O'Liar doesn't claim to have created or saved 2 million jobs, and in fact there is no evidence he's created or saved a single job. The stimulus has been the single biggest waste of money in our nation's history.

    Okay kool aid sippers, when are you going to wake up and realize that you put a bunch of dumb a$$es in the white house with your "we want change". Well your getting it now boys and girls. This isnt even the end of whats comming. It will get a whole lot worse and it will get there fast. All that Odumbo sees is health care reform and cap and trade right now, he should be looking for ways to get people back to work. Wouldn't that be a heck of a stimulis plan for the economy.
    9.8% unemploment, that isn't even close. what about the people that cant file for unemploment that the goverment doesnt count or doesnt want to count. I bet it's pushing 14 to 15%. You voted him in and you can vote him out. WISE UP!
    God Bless All

  20. When liberalism becomes a disease

    See Tim........People on here are blaming Bush even though Oliar is sitting on the stimulus to have the economy "magically" recover next summer. Oliar has lied about EVERYTHING except including healthcare. "Illegals will not have coverage" and Deficit Neutral, ya right.

    That's the most sensible thing anyone on this page has said in a while. It'll never happen, though. It will be lobbied into a watered down joke with no real reform, just like healthcare reform. America is over. The corporations won. Have a nice day!
