Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama blasted Senate Republicans on Monday for blocking a small business assistance bill, calling their opposition "pure partisan politics."
The country needs a "full scale attack" on economic sluggishness, he told reporters at the White House.
"While we have taken a series of measures and come a long way ... too many Americans are still looking for work and too many communities are far from being whole again," he said.
The president also said his economic team is "hard at work" on a series of new measure designed both to spark short-term hiring and lay the foundation for long-term economic growth.
This Country needs another President.
Not true Mr. President! Your liberal agenda has severely hindered small businesses in the last 18 months, so please do us all a favor and stop lying by once again blaming the Republicans...
Fire that lousy, no good economic team of bozos who have no clue as to what they are doing. This economy is all their fault. FIRE ALL OF THEM.
Meanwhile this hypocritical Bozo wants to levy the biggest tax increase on Small Business Owners in history come January! We see through your charade Erkel and thank God Republicans are stopping your unbridaled spending spree!!!
Man this guy just can not be honest... it is getting pathetic how he lies and people just gobble it up without educating themselves...
BTW folks all those who state the Iraq war caused our economic troubles... I know that no one has educated you to this so allow me to enlighten you a bit.
The ENTIRE war has cost less than the money Obama has thrown away on stimulus that did nothing for the country!
WAKE UP!!! Read and educate yourselves, slick speeches do NOT make a leader.
Mr "Blame everyone else"..President doing what he does best. Out the door in four.
I hope in the next few weeks he starts calling out the Republicans for the pure obstructionists they are. If he can make the American people wake up and see the Repubs have no ideas to help the economy, he can spare us all from them taking too many seats in November.
I'm a small business owner and Obama's policies are hurting more than helping.
Also, this man is an idiot. The GOP CAN'T BLOCK his agenda. He's had a supermajority in the Congress for his whole presidency. Obama is just playing politics and laying blame. The man failed, get over it.
Here's your GOP at work people. Go ahead put them back in power. You think the "lesser" of us have it bad now. They'll become invisible once those American haters are back in power.
The media wonders how 20% of the nation can believe that Obama is a Muslim.
Well, this is why a bunch of the American people have no idea that the Small Business Bill is FULLY PAID FOR... because CNN et al lets the GOP get away with lies like this:
"Instead of growing jobs as promised, Washington Democrats have grown the size of the national debt, the federal government and the unemployment rate," McConnell said.
Please inform the American people that this Small Business Bill is already PAID FOR.
The President shouldn't be too surprised. Republicans have and always will be for BIG BUSINESS and could care less for the small business guy or blue collar workers, other than how they can be used to line their own pockets.
keep after them.mr president.hold them accountable.we the majority know what is going on.the repubs started on the day you were sworn in.with the intent of stopping everything you try.even if it means.DESTROYING EVERYTHING IN U.S. OF AMERICA.
Instead of increasing the deficit with all your bailouts, since nothing has worked and we are still losing jobs(2MIllion this year), there is a simple answer. Companies in the US now have close to 3 Trillion dollars. Because of your solcialistic policies, they are scared to death of what is coming next and that is why they sit on the sidelines. The answer is repeal the health plan, tear up Wall Street reform and continue the tax cuts. This will have a major affect on these companies. Small business do not want to hire because of the increased cost of your health bill. So no matter what you do on the small business jobs bill, it will have no effect whatsoever. That is why the Republicans wont vote for it. You are nothing but a crybaby and wont listen to people who know what they are taling about. Wake up Mr President.
Yes, too many Americans. He's not one of them, he's off on vacation again.
He's almost as brilliant as he thinks he is.
If you put a little propeller on his head, it all makes sense.
Way back in the '80's, Frank Zappa stated, in an interview, that 2 things destroyed the United States of America and they can both be abbreviated with 3 letters. Those 2 things, he said, were LSD and MBA. By LSD, he went on to explain, he meant the whole inward-gazing me, me, me attitude which started to replace a more common-good approach as the baby boom came of age. By MBA, he meant the commodification of everything as well as the change in our education system from one producing well-rounded individuals able to think for themselves to a vocational system which teaches specific skill sets for specific careers and churns out obedient little consumerbots. Frank Zappa was a smart man. Have a nice day!
All we hear is how the repulsive repuglicans are pro business and not Obama. Well! Where is the action to back up their empty words?
Palin's created jobs: one for herself, one for her husband Todd campaigning for her, one for Bristol and one for Bristol's baby daddy Levi. That's 4 jobs, all in the family.
How sad that the GOP is doing their best to ensure that our economy doesn't rebound from the disaster they caused just to improve their chances of winning some seats in November. Party before country is their motto.
The democrates don't even support this bill. He has enough votes in his own party to pass it if they wanted to. Wake up America this guy is a liar and cares nothing for anything but himself.
Should read, "Obamatard rips GOP for not supporting unions."
oh really ,,, lets see you control all 3 branches ....give me a break and man up.... i guess you havent heard of the buck stops here...looser..
It's much more important to defeat Barry and regain power.
The party of NO is at it again and they tell there voters that they are out for small business that is another joke that there brain dead party members suck up to maybe Obama needs to get a blackboard like Beck has and teach these uneducated idiots just like little school children and if they still don't get we can put a dummy cap on them and have them sit in the corner of the class
