"“Today’s weak unemployment report which showed that we created just 114,000 jobs is another sign that the President’s policies aren’t working. When the President passed his nearly trillion dollar stimulus bill in 2009 he promised that the unemployment rate would be around 5.5 percent this month but we are still at a high rate of 7.8 percent. I agree with what Vice President Joe Biden recently said when he stated that the middle class was “buried” over the past four years.”

“That is why the House voted to stop President Obama’s tax hike proposal on small business owners and the middle class, which would destroy over 700,000 jobs. We need the President and the Senate to work with House Republicans instead of continuing to promote job-destroying policies that the American people can no longer afford.”"

This is exactly why we need some hope and change in the White House - Romney in 2012.

Wrong.

The report is positive. Not as positive as many would like, but positive nonetheless.

As we continue to shore and sheath, and climb out of W's hole, we don't need Romney/Ryan's shovelsfull of BS raining on our heads looking to again collapse the hole under us.

No promises were made. Nor can you show any documents that such promises were made. The fact neither you NOR Harris read NOR comprehended what was said then is irrefutable proof neither of you should be allowed to vote or hold any public office.

Couple of points:

1) Neither you nor Harris can back up that bogus claim of 5.5% by this month.

2) It's pretty hilarious that on one hand Regressives celebrate blocking Obama's legislation and on the other hand say his legislation hasn't produced results.

3) The GOP has clearly turned the term "small business owner" into its own brand knowing that most voters think of the local ice cream shop, dry cleaners and such -- and not know the term also applies to the likes of Bechtel and PWC. Which of those do you think would feel the pain of those taxes and send lobbyists to Congress with paper and cash to stop passage of the bill?

"No promises were made."

Huh?? He promised "hope and change." And depite those lofty promises, not much has changed. So much for campaign promises - not worth the teleprompter they're written on.

Romney in 2012. Anything else and were doomed.

Request: all those so "doomed" when the President wins reelection kindly leave the planet and make more room for the rest of us.

Wow, short memory.

#1. Healthcare reform.
#2. OBL is dead.

The US public likes the healthcare reform. The majority of Americans wanted UHC or SP/UHC--but conservatives were having conniptions over ANY change whatsoever and absolutely opposed it. Funny how they also opposed Social Security. Today, Social Security is regarded as one of the best run programs in the world.

Wow long memory:

#1. I'm going to close GITMO;
#2. I'm going to keep lobbyists out of the White House;
#3. Rahm the "pitbull" is going to come in and show everyone how Washington should be run. (He didn't last the entire first term before being ushered out the back door.)

Except the small business people who are going to be forced to offer it at great expense. So much for stimulating small business.

Small business does not have to offer healthcare as a benefit. "Small" business--remember? LOL !!!

The ones who do have to offer healthcare OR pay a penalty are NOT "small business".
