    Government can’t create jobs, all it can do is misallocate money which causes bubbles that eventually burst.

    Mr. Ima, with all due respect, you should diversify where you get your news.

    FINALLY!! A cartoon about jobs!!!
    In that context, I can provide my own insight on this cartoon. Those weights don’t look like much, but what you don’t see are the electromagnets republicans and amendment writing dems have placed under the floor making it impossible for the President to lift the job numbers and strengthen his presidency and our nation. Reagan & Clinton had “spotters” to help them strengthen employment A president cannot create jobs when legislators are too busy protecting political donors and those organizations who have promised them employment after they leave government service.
    And do you folks have any idea of the kind of benefits these people get after leaving office? It’s pretty insane and definitely qualifies as wasteful spending.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Well how many people would be proud to declare they got their job because of affirmative action… in a world where the successful are punished and the weak promoted… is the end result such a surprise?

    The Bush record wouldn’t …

    but but bush is no longer an excuse. Obama now owns this economy! He is a failure by his own mouth. The real unemployment has done nothing but go UP! His White house said they would have all these magic green jobs and unemployment could be under 8% and the dept would be half. Obama is a failure!
    I remember when Clinton was painting bush 1 as a job loser for losing like .1% off of 5. something, Obama has kept us in a depression. all he has done is grow welfare and the unemployment benefits!

    If Obama tripled the national debt like Reagan did he could have outstanding job growth.

    acutally i agree with ima here. The bush record would not fit into the box of the cartoon. It would be somewhere around down here with the posts. -700,000 per month! and it certainly paved the way for everything that has followed.

    the biggest problem is the GOP is trying to prove their wacky theories about FDR extending the depression. so instead of being like the democrats under bush and supporting their president, the current house GOP is obstructing economic growth.

    They are pictured. No one can see them since the jobs created were a negative.

    I swear I need to save this as a text document but here is a small note
    ******************************************************************
    The 1981 recession was caused by a small organization known as the Federal Reserve. It made a seemingly tiny change to the primerate 12%-23%. It seemingly is hard to produce a monthly return of 24% on origional capital.

    What was required and what happened was the government strong armed the federal reserve into reducing the prime rate


    Bill Clinton was part of the dot.com boom.


    The 2008 financial crisis ended up causing banks to either go bankrupt (Lehman brothers) or to foreclose on buisnesses and homes. This destroyed jobs and also reduced home value. In the psycological aftermath of the relatively traumatic event many people tried to sell their homes, further decreasing the value of the homes

    now to end this the federal government could have

    A) nationalized every major bank in the USA. Thus ending foreclosures.
    B) ban the sale of houses and effectively put an artificial limit on value of homes
    C) throw massive amounts of bills out of helicopters in a way of funding stimulus ( good ole Bernanke)

    Now considering this is all quite radical and would likely cause long term issues lets scrap all of that


    Following forward

    . Offshore drilling is at all time high

    . Income tax hadn’t gone up until fiscal cliff so the robin hood argument is invalid

    . Stimulus to green energy totaled at 300 million, not billion. 300 million

    300,000,000

    Compared to 700 billion for the financial bailout.

    700,000,000,000

    If Reagan’s job record includes giving American jobs to illegal immigrants via amnesty then Ramirez is right on the money.
