I find it interesting and funny the way the Statists try to justify the stimulus and all their other spending plans by saying, "Yeah, but it would have been a lot worse if they didn't pass it." They saved the US from going into a depression. They also say the Stimulus "Saved or Created" jobs, and now they are resorting to "Lives Touched." These statements cannot be quantified; they are a figment of their imagination.

Obama claims the country is headed in the right direction under his plan. The Stimulus plan was sold by the Statists by saying with the passage of it unemployment would not go above 8%. It rose to above 10% and is now at 9.6% and that is by using the new accounting methods. The GDP was at 5+%, a few quarters ago, then it was 3+ percent the next quarter, and is 1.6% the latest quarter. Let’s see, GDP is shrinking and unemployment is rising and Obama tells us the country is headed in the right direction. I don’t think he “Gets It.”

One of the reasons for the high unemployment is the "UNCERTAINTY" coming out of Washington with all the new TAXES and REGULATIONS. I do not believe they have begun writing some of the regulations in the new Financial Regulation (Coercion) Bill. They also mishandled the housing crisis. Then there is Obamacare, Cap and Trade and more taxes and regulation coming in the future. In December, Obama's financial Committee will be giving their recommendations on how to reduce the debt and deficit, watch for the "Value Added Tax."

Another reason for high unemployment is some corporations are trying to do more with less. They can do that for a while, but eventually the overworked employees begin to burn out and productivity suffers. The corporations would then begin to start hiring again, if they are “Smart.”

A good way to get the economy going would be to reduce taxes. I’d prefer to go to a “Flat” tax, but for now a reduction would do. Let the people keep more of their money, to spend as they see fit. Then cut government spending and reduce the burdensome and duplicitous regulations imposed on businesses. Repeal Obamacare and rework Healthcare, eliminate Cap and Trade Legislation and redo the financial regulation bill. Take away the CLOUD of UNCERTAINTY that is hanging over the heads of businesses and the economy will improve.

“Let me be clear,” Barack Hussein Obama probably will not rest and will be laser focused on jobs, unless he gets the urge to go on another vacation. He has a plan to spend $50 billion repairing roads and railways to boost jobs. The problem with that is the different states have a budget and plans already in place for road repairs. Also, the money should have come for the tax on gasoline, but the government has already spent that money when they put it in the general revenue fund. He wants another $100 billion for research and development tax credits, which will be paid for by eliminating other tax loopholes. Once again, the government through the tax system picks winners and losers.

Let’s see how Obama has really affected the job market. They mishandled the housing crisis, causing the housing market to collapse.Thousands of jobs were lost when they took over the Student Loan Program with the passage of Obamacare. The actions and statements made by the Obama Administration negatively impacted the hotel, convention and tourism industry costing jobs when he said the American people need to tighten their belts and they should not be going to Vegas. His Administration also demonized corporations for having “lavish” conventions, so much so, that many corporations canceled their convention with some paying a cancellation penalty. Then Obama forced the closing of many profitable auto dealerships when they took over GM and Chrysler, costing more jobs. He has called for a moratorium on offshore drilling. These actions not only affect the primary business, but it also affects the ancillary businesses, such as the bars, restaurants, ferries, movie theatres and other forms of entertainment, costing even more jobs. Therefore, it is the Obama Administration and his policies that have caused unemployment to rise. Then again, what did you expect when you have a Community Agitator as President?

Support Christine O'Donnell

To Karl Rove, Charles Krauthammer, Mike Castle: whatever happened to Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment, thou shall not speak ill of a fellow Republican. They have been trashing Christine O’Donnell after she won the primary against Mike Castle. They say she is unelectable and that with her victory, the Republican Party lost a sure seat in the Senate because Castle would have won in the General election. They claim this election was most important to win, in order for the Republican’s to take back the Senate to turn back the Obama agenda. They say, we’ll just see if she can win in the General election. If winning that seat is most important I ask them, what are they going to do to HELP her WIN? The National Republican Senatorial Committee stated they were not going to support O’Donnell until they were inundated with emails against their decision and they subsequently, reversed their decision.

Mike Castle was not a conservative Republican. He would not debate O’Donnell. He is for Cap and Trade and said he would not support the repeal of Obamacare. After the election, he did not call to congratulate O’Donnell, instead he released another hit piece on her and chastised the voters of Delaware for not electing him. Castle showed no class by his actions. Furthermore, we do not need anymore RINO’s in the Republican Party. Christine O’Donnell was the more conservative candidate and she won the primary. I too believe it is very important to get control of Congress to stop Obama’s radical agenda. Therefore, I say stop the attacks and name-calling and get on board and HELP Christine O’Donnell defeat her Marxist Democrat opponent and PET of Harry Reid, Coons.
