Obama; Racking Up Failure After Failure After Failure....

Another $20 Million down a pit that provides a handful of "management" jobs but few actual working jobs (remember "shovel ready"?).
He could have given me that $20 Million and I would have shown him what real jobs that put people to work look like.

Quote:
Last year, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn announced the city had won a coveted $20 million federal grant to invest in weatherization. The unglamorous work of insulating crawl spaces and attics had emerged as a silver bullet in a bleak economy – able to create jobs and shrink carbon footprint – and the announcement came with great fanfare.

...

But more than a year later, Seattle's numbers are lackluster. As of last week, only three homes had been retrofitted and just 14 new jobs have emerged from the program. Many of the jobs are administrative, and not the entry-level pathways once dreamed of for low-income workers. Some people wonder if the original goals are now achievable.
"The jobs haven't surfaced yet," said Michael Woo, director of Got Green, a Seattle community organizing group focused on the environment and social justice.
Wow, $20 Million to create 14 new management jobs... Sounds like big government to me.

Maybe this his why now Obie has a whopping 26% approval rating for the way he is handling the economy.

Impressive he is NOT.

He reminds me of the type of person who has a brand new caddy in front of their mobile home. He's taking his vacation, earned or not. Problems or not. Country in shambles or not.

By the way, where are all of the obammy supporters? There sure aren't as many as there were back in the fall of 2008. Are they ashamed of what they did?

Threats mean diddly crap to me.

If Obama goes in on thought processes such as yours, we are indeed doomed.

I like Ron Paul and if he is selected as the Republican Nominee I will vote for him.

How would you fee if I said I was a Perry or Bachmann person and if they were not on the ticket, I would write them in if Paul were the choice? Screwed probably.

I'm not ashamed of anything, very proud of supporting the President, and there is actually a decent chance he will be relected.
Is that a sure thing? nope, only time will tell, but while the right basically self destructs in search of a candidate, the left already has a great one
I just dont bother to hang in the basement anymore, besides the hot chicks thread, of course!
And again, if you think a toy plane forum mostly frecuented by old, angry white people does accurately represents this nation political spectrum....AT ALL...well, there is a big chance you may be wrong.
