    What was his bonus this year? Something like $12M?

    With two hundred more Public employed and Obama said the only president who has laid off the public sector during a recession is me. No Shame.

    If even Oliphant comments on it this way the “gaffe” must be more than I thought. But, in fact, the President was right. Read the full transcript. it was a comparison with the public sector and how much jobs got lost there because of the failed GOP-policies of fighting debt and deficit by European-style austerity measures. Who do they think they are? The socialists paradise, Germany? SOCIALISTS! COMMUNISTS! MARXISTS! Every-other-ISTS!!!

    200 more employed? You can’t even get your talking points right!

    The “gaffe” when taken in context, which is beyond “conservative intellect”, is pretty true. The REST of the story was that overall the economy is still ill, and needs more help!


    I’m disappointed with a number of Obama’s actions, but, as when “W” was in and we had to try to explain “Americans” rational for giving him a second term to folks from Europe and New Zealand, I’m far MORE disappointed with my fellow citizens.

    From John Steinbeck, AMERICA AND AMERICANS:

    “The President must be greater than anyone else, but not better than anyone else. We subject him and his family to close and constant scrutiny and denounce them for things that we ourselves do every day. A Presidential slip of the tongue, a slight error in judgment — social, political, or ethical — can raise a storm of protest. We give the President more work than a man can do, more responsibility than a man should take, more pressure than a man can bear. We abuse him often and rarely praise him. We wear him out, use him up, eat him up. And with all this, Americans have a love for the President that goes beyond loyalty or party nationality; he is ours, and we exercise the right to destroy him. "

    And the “jobs figures” keep going down — well that happens every year when we lay off all the teachers at the end of the school year (so they can collect unemployment insurance). Don’t know about elsewhere, but in Michigan the property taxes used to pay for education, but those got cut in half by one of our illustrious former GOP guvs — Engler. Now we don’t understand why there is no money for education — Duh!!
