Obama on new jobs

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama credits the creation of 2 million jobs with steps his administration has taken toward economic recovery, adding in his State of the Union address Wednesday night, "We are on track to add another one and a half million jobs to this total by the end of the year."

    I'm sure the phantom jobs Obama is talking about would all be in the government section. It sure won't be in the private sector. As for putting the future on hold, well, how about he puts all that spending on hold.

    As for second plave for America if he won't accept that then why did he bow so deeply to all the other diplomats? Where was his pride in America then?

    Where do these figures come from? Thin Air? How can they possibly credit 2 million jobs which may have been lost but were saved? That is not possible to count nor credit to Obama's stimulus package and how can people believe claims like this? He may as well say he invented the question mark. Unemployment is the highest ever and his spending is completely out of control which everyone will need to pay back. He claims he didn't raise income taxes but they raised every other tax in the world. He claims he will make banks pay back but gives free passes to Freddie Mack / Fannie Mae / GM which were worse than any financial firm because the unions there helped him get into office. In addition, by making banks pay higher taxes which is unconstitutional, they will pass that cost to the consumer which is the middle class which is the same as raising taxes, doesn't anyone in the middle class understand that?

    He keeps saying Americans, but almost 50% of the people I work with are not American. I fear that my job will be eliminated and replaced by a non American. In my case, 50% of the workers are indians. In my brother's (and cousins) case, they are mexicans.
