    Speaking of Bush, what was his excuses for the unemployment rate skyrocketing from 4% to 10% during his presidency?

    Obama inheritied high unemployment, a bad economy, massive budget deficits, and two expensive wars, and a low standing on the world stage. Between his lack of leadership and a combative, ineffectual Congress, very little is getting resolved. But never mind the causes and players, there’s a Democrat in the White House. Everything is completely his fault.

    He’s had more than two terms to fix the problems he was “left”. Are any of them fixed? And even if you still champion this president, wait until 2015 when the ACA finishes kicking in. So comforting to think that the same organizational skills now applied to the VA will then be applied to the rest of us.

    I truly wish people would at least try to use facts. NO president since FDR has had “more” than two terms. By a constitutional amendment that is an impossibility! If you are going to post at least start off with true facts instead of unreasonable hyperbole!

    During a time when the government should be doing all that it can to get Americans working again the GOP-led House of Representatives, from which all jobs or infrastructure bills originate, have done almost literally nothing for four years, especially from 2013-on. This ineffectiveness is in no small part aided by the GOP’s own schedule which gave them 239 off-days in 2013.

    .
    The GOP was happy to pump out tons of legislation through the Dubya years but suddenly, after the biggest meltdown in economic history since 1929, the GOP decides that sitting on their hands for four years is the perfect solution to this country’s ills.

    America may never fully recover from the damage inflicted by the stupidity and incompetence of the Obamanation, of which Obamanationcare is only one part.

    No, Unemployment hit just about 10% under Bush. As for the “jobs bills,” most of them were unrelated to jobs. One can introduce a bill to weaken environmental, safety, or banking regulations and call it a “jobs bill.” That doesn’t mean they’ll actually increase the amount of jobs in the US.

    Communism: The Republican red herring since 1917.

    Yes, we remember when the Bush Administration failed to act on a certain memo and its aftermath. We also remember that Bush used falsified evidence to convince the nation to divert military attention away from Afghanistan to invade and occupy a nation that had absolutely nothing to do with said attack. We remember that instead of raising taxes to pay for two wars, he cut taxes and kept the cost of said wars off of the official budget.

    That has very little, if anything, to do with the doubling of the unemployment rate during his administration.

    RE: “jobs bill”
    The ONLY thing government can do to increase employment is to eliminate onerous regulations. Any other “jobs bill” is merely a redistribution of wealth and does nothing but decrease the capital pool that corporate America draws upon to start, maintain, and grow a business – and thereby employ people.
