President Barack Obama is challenging Congress to help him create jobs and rebuild the nations infrastructure.
In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama points to the launch of two new high-tech manufacturing hubs and a competition to rebuild the nations roads, bridges, mass transit, ports and railroads. Obama says Congress can help in both areas.

GOVERNMENT DOES NOT CREATE JOBS!
Holy crap, it’s like trying to talk to a toddler.
Obama is a stupid dunderhead. He does the same thing over and over and the proof is in plain sight that nothing he says or does works.
This infrastructure crap is just another gift to unions and the democrat party.
-— GOVERNMENT DOES NOT CREATE JOBS!
Holy crap, its like trying to talk to a toddler.
Yes. Yes it is.
You are so right. Of course, if they create these jobs, now let me think, just who would take all the credit for them, oh, that was too easy.
Obama has been front and center in preventing job growth with his over regulation of businesses, Obamacare, anti fracking, drilling and pipeline. He is by far the biggest obstacle to job growth.
His cronies have blown all the money in the first round of thefts, now he is back to steal some more.
The Democrat party is a criminal enterprise
Congress would do well to start by impeaching the fool.
Creating jobs is easy - just get FedGov out of the way. Jobs create themselves as hard-working Americans spot opportunities and work to meet the needs and wants of others, unless someone gets in the way of profiting from meeting those needs. Creating job while implementing ObamaCare, raising taxes on businesses, increasing regulation, and demonizing those who are productive? That’s an insurmountable challenge.
If dollars were miles, the US is in a hole going on four light-years deep.
Obama can only kill jobs with all his borrowing, not allowing the 1.7 trillion foreign held profits to be repatriated, not allowing the Keystone pipeline.
The House has passed around 40 Bills to help Business’ be able to create jobs. Reid has brought NONE up in the Senate so they wither on the vine. And, of course, the Dems/Big Media label Republicans the ‘do nothing’ Congress. And the wheels on the bus go ‘round and ‘round......until they fall completely off.
It may not create jobs, but it can sure destroy them.
Pray America wakes up
Approve the Keystone pipeline...zero cost involved.
Open federal lands to drilling, mining, and timber harvest...zero cost involved.
Remove regulations that block refineries, cheaper gas makes the economy take off...zero cost involved.
The President sets the tone for the economy. In the early days, President ‘I Won’ told everyone just what was in store. Many small businesses decided it wasn’t worth the costs and risks to stay in and closed, others went ‘slow roll’. Both have been proven correct in their actions with the continued business climate constantly being barraged with taxes and regulations.
I received an email containing a post I think very relevant to our economic condition...
“ A strong society is only sustained by warranted trust. When the excesses of power and corruption gain too much traction, people lose faith in conservative values of self sufficiency and responsibility. We slowly...and then quickly, morph into a world of complete corruption where anyone who would live by honesty and responsibility are considered the fool. We all know that corruption is not ultimately sustainable and what we have now is an unchecked progress toward absolute tyranny driven by personal greed for power. I see no way this can be stopped from meeting its ultimate end. Those who would lead us to a survivable path are destroyed by politics or worse. We understand why there is such a backlash from conservatives. They know they are being played for the fool and will be left with the bill. Sure, many of us want to see our country survive as well, but we also know where WE will be left in this. So many want to concentrate only on the dollars, which are important, but what I think is far more important is how these dollars are changing behaviors and expectations. This is what actually defines who we are.”
The best first step that Congress could take in creating a JOB FRIENDLY environment, would to be immediately open Hearings on the Articles of Impeachment.
Don’t hold your breath on the worthless, unprincipled, nutless wonders in Congress to do that, though.
I thought the ‘stimulus’ package was supposed to be used for federal infrastructure projects......
There is going to be a lot of road rebuilding after this winter.
His pen is out of ink and the phone is dead he looks out window and scratches ass.
Spend less, tax less, regulate less.
It’d be magical.
Obama will fire 100,000 troops + all the civilian jobs that support those troops also disappear , good start
“The Democrat party is a criminal enterprise.”
So is the Asspress.
How many signs printed by Obama are still all over this country saying ‘this bridge’ or this road built by Obama?
His only success at shovel ready jobs are those which involve the grave diggers & the increase of dying patients under Obamacare.
This infrastructure crap is just another gift to unions and the democrat party.”””
Keep in mind that such jobs would fall under Obama’s EO concerning ‘federal contracts’ and a rise in the MINIMUM WAGE.
Maxing out his gravitas I guess...
You don’t get the depth of the criminality of the enterprise...... AP is the democrat party, the propaganda bureau
