    Mr. Davis asking yourself first. The jobs is overseas and your GOP party is sending them over therethe last ten years. We need the Robin Hood from England and not American Robin Hood.

    Do you remember when these problems began? Yes, that's right, when Geroge W. Bush become our president. He,and his administration are responsible for today's economy. Obama and his adminstration are trying to fix eight bad years we had with Bush and company. It is going to take a long period of time to turn the economy around. We have to stand behind our current president and support him instead of trying to knock him down at any chance we get.

    Seriously, this coming from Repubs, the biggest obstructionists to job creation? Give me a break! Whoever votes this regime back in power are total suckers for their lies. It's time for the middle class in this country, the wealthy continue to ride their wave. They still have their Bush tax cuts and it doesn't seem like that's been working very well, now has it? Why would we want more of these goons and their tired agendas? I don't get it.

    The liar! The Part of Avarice had its way for more then eight years and the only thing they created was more greed and economic choas. The Depression we are in is a direct result of Republican policies. The only playing card the GOP has is race and they are playing it to the Klansmen of America (i.e. Teabaggers) with great effect – lies and hate sell to the human heart which is exactly fits into the GOP playbook.

    You repulsicans destroyed the jobs when you deregulated Big Oil, Big Business and Wall Street over your 8 years with the bushwhacker. You almost destroyed our whole economy and now you want another go at it in November? I sure hope not! Americans remember how close we came!!

    These guys are such rubes - they just repeat lies and repeat lies and hope that ignorant people will return them to power. There hasn't been a tax increase, there's been a decrease, but they'll just continue the lies. Its just a shame that there's so much time lost in not solving problems because these power-brokers would rather see us all fail just so they can retake their seats.

    Why are the republicans keeping quiet about there agenda? Shouldn't they put them forward so we can start improveing the economy. Do we have to suffer, while they hold back their ideas. We've been waiting two years for them to contribute something constructive. I guess we wait some more.

    Good question. Given that this entire economic disaster is the result of GOP legislation in the 90's and unchecked spending by the GOP through 2 wars tax breaks for the rich, I'm looking to you to explain yourselves, not just more finger pointing. Own up bitches!

    The lack of Washington's rules and regulations allowed the Wall Street meltdown and the Gulf oil spill to happen. How many jobs has the lack of Washington's rules and regulations created?

    The Bush tax cuts are still in effect. Where are the jobs?

    The tax cuts for the rich didn't result in any job creation, so how do they expect the extension of those tax cuts, which by the way means keeping things the way they are today, to create any new jobs? What the Republicans are trying to tell us is that returning the tax rates to the previous levels would be bad for job growth. What they fail to observe is that growth in this country stalled when those tax breaks went in to effect. Now they want to extend (indefinitely I'm sure) those very tax breaks that did nothing to create jobs in this country. If the tax breaks were truly a job creating program, then I suspect that unemployment would be just a tad lower than it is today.

    I grow weary of hearing the Republican party say something, only to find out that what they said was far enough from the truth to be called a lie. Now it's on the media to call them out on it.
