It is clear that you do not understand simple economics, we know this because you don't realize that manufacturing and labor are mutually inclusive, one cannot exist without the other.
When it's "Made in USA" - Americans work
When Americans work - the economy grows
When the economy grows - more Americans work
When more Americans work - more middle-class Americans are paying taxes
When more Americans are paying taxes - the budget get's balanced, Social Security & Medicare get paid, fewer Americans are on welfare, you get to keep your pork and your campaign financiers get to keep their tax-free income.
Free Trade Agreements don't create jobs in America - they export jobs.
My entire life I never achieved wages that would be deamed middle class. I am a woman and also I am survivor of getting labeled in WI with a psychiatric diagnosis that destroyed my life and my family. www.mindfreedom.org is a big help for us survivors.

What is wrong with you people. Do you honestly think you would be better off under any one of those republican candidates. President Obama didn't cause this mess and unless you haven't noticed, he is bringing us out of it. The Stock Market is up, unemployment is down and Sandy Guiles I doubt if you would take a job held by a current illegal. And Jane Clark he is creating job. Do your research.
Notice how Republicans always sit on the sidelines and complain about the life-changing laws that Democrats create? They would never pass Healthcare Reform on their own. Yet they sit on their lazy asses, throwing curve balls to the party who seek to help Americans in their everyday lives.
LOL This guy always cracks me up when he talks about being "America" when every policy, every plan, and every action he takes does something to dismantle what America is. He has no clue what it means to be an American, and he has no clue what personal responsibility and individualism is. He has no clue what a real job is, and he has no clue how to lead a country. Everything he has done and is doing leads to American decline. Out in 2012!!!
Thank you Mr. President! You have done an outstanding job in my book, with all the negativity you have put up with, you continue to outshine their lies and darkness! Thank you for the care and treatment of our Veterans as well. I am saying this as a disabled US Army veteran, myself. You've got my vote again in 2012! God Bless you!
Time is moving on, sadly many Americans are stuck in the past, and blaming the President and Congress for not making things "the way they used to be..." What's so good about the past that we want to live in it? Sure things were different, but some of those differences were not good for many citizens, and I'm not just talking about minorities. Let's embrace the changes brought on by the new century, and change America and ourselves to better live, work and prosper in these brave new times. What used to work no longer does...let's do something new!
This could actually be a coversation if it weren't for the bazillion comments every minute. As things sit I still appreciate our White House staffers for this page. I don't have much of any problem depreciating you haters either.
What company is going to hire a middle aged woman with a visual impairment who must take care of her older husband with dementia. I want to work to help provide for my family but also because I want to use my brain. Some of us feel hopeless and hopelessly unemployable.
How about kick-starting alternative energy manufacturing business at home with some tax credits so we can ween ourselves off of our foreign oil dependency, which supports despots and promotes global instability?
It's re-election time-time to promise all those promises you didn't follow through with the first term. Back that up with a cash offer to all working Americans then screw us on healthcare. Where's those troops you promised would be hone by he first year in office all the way up until before 2011 was over. If impeachment were profitable, it would be the best plan - kick Obama out of the White House asap!
Yea ! The Republican Control United States House of Representatives, Could, Bring " The China Currency Manipulation Act " To The Floor of The United States House of Representatives for a vote, Since, It has already passed in The United States Senate 63 to ~ 35, The Senators in The United States Senate said, That when this Bill is signed into law !! It would create, More than One Million American good paying with Insurance, Manufacturing Jobs, But, Eric Cantor, Majority Leader in The Republican Control United States House of Representatives,& Speaker, Of The United States House Of Representatives John Beohner, Refuse to bring it to the floor of The U.S House floor for a vote, Because they know it will pass, & They don't want to make President Obama look good in an election year, It does exactly what Mitt Romney on The Campaign trail says he going to do, Put, American Companies on a level playing field with, China Manufacturing, Why, Eric Cantor & John Beohner waiting America needs Jobs Now, Bring The China Currency Manipulation Act To The Floor Of The U.S. House Floor for a vote Now !! Eric Cantor, It would help the 500,000 Americans that are unemployed in Ohio !! You Know !!
Elliot, I agree with you that we have to be willing to accept change and that is hard to do but it is necessary. We really do have to think out of the box and innovate. This is somethng that President Obama is championing. It makes me very sad that there so many misleading and downright wrong comments about the achievements so far of this President while totally ignoring the terrible state of this country's economy when he took office. He took the necessary measures to prevent aother depression that would have made the Great Depression of the 30's look pale by contrast. I believe a number of those posting incorrect and misleading comments on this thread, in there heart of hearts, are aware of this and for whatever reason they do not want to admit that President Obama is doing a lot of things right. Saying this does not mean that I approve of everything the president has done since taking office, but I also know full well no one can please all the people all the time. I for one am very grteful for so many advances for the better since he has taken office and think one of his campaign themes should most certainly be, to quote the Prseident, "In America we don't give up, we get."
Does anyone else find it strange that the posts in support of President Obama keep disappearing. I know my did. So all you haters out there you can't keep us from voting in 2012. Obama/Biden 2012. Do you honestly think that you would be better off with one of those Republican candidates. Scary as hell!
That crazy pipeline was by chance, what will you do with this forknowlege. Think of it like a snow plow; if it had been through once; how will you then dig your car out. Lol Facebook's IPO was much to lazy to drive their sales department against google Ad words. I haven't made a dime. For fun i sent a professional client a bill for example.
Obama is just as bad for the republicans as he is good for the democrats because republicans obviously wants what the rest of the world hates, but he will get nobel prizes and honors after his second term, like democratic presidents and not warrants for his arrest like republican presidents
As Tea Party Patriots we have made a commitment toward situational awareness our perception is imperative in order to hold our elected officials accountable for their questionable decisions. The way to influence a decision is to question it. Do not accept a question for an answer, do not accept an excuse for a explanation.
We the People, a Force to be Reckoned with!
Obama is backed by the criminal bankers on Wall Street who, along with The Federal Reserve, (which is a PRIVATE bank) has stolen trillions from the American people. The Federal Reserve (and other central banks throughout the world) fund both sides of every war. Your taxes go towards paying the interest on the debt we owe The Fed and it is IMPOSSIBLE to ever pay it off. Obama is a Fascist, not a Socialist. Monsanto, the pharmaceutical companies and the military industrial complex rule this country. It is not a Democrat VS Republican issue. It is a WE THE PEOPLE vs THE FASCIST'S who now control this country issue. We all MUST wake up and unite. Stop with the name calling of your fellow Americans and TAKE THIS COUNTRY back from the criminals who high jacked it many years ago. For God's sake, STOP listening to the mainstream media, which is owned by 6 corporations. AMERICANS, YOU HAVE BEEN HAD!! WAKE THE HELL UP!!
I'm going to tell you people something--the GOPs lie-period and they have their base Fox throw their bs out--Fact check---plus the GOPs study States that the people are not too smart and that's where they put those Right to work in as work for less---GOPs laugh at all the people that vote for them--even Barbara Bush of daughter Laura stated she would not vote repub---she also stated all should have health care--that should tell you people something
I believe people should start getting there selves together and begin to see the positive side in their lives .Vote for what it will be yor right to maske your life better have stability and security.President ,Barack Obams has been preparing and ageda that will do and help to get training and jog for those who want a change in their lives .So think like the President ,Positivity and corage to make this mission to make the right choice .See ,feel ,build.create and work to have the future you want and deserve.I Vote for thar and for him.Putting attention to what realy matters in your life,family study,work and the future so you wont fail and keep that value of We deserve better life We want a better future.Be strong and remain with your head high and see your future how it can be for your sake and your family.This Man the President is putting in your hands a future that it will be hard to find or get without him been in that special place who all respect as he respect the value of every human.He has a Civil Heart and he is showing it.Bless his soul and his life.It is your life and the life of you family and the decendants that will follow your steps and security.Vote is very important but is more impotant who you vote for.MCH
Now let me tell you people about the Pipe line---if it goes through the GOPs will make big $$s---they say alot of people working--this is how it works.If a man is with that company 2 yrs he's already counted as 4 men--another one that is there 7 yrs he's counted as 14--so that is already 18---Bottom line 2 small towns in Canada Can Not use water-not to drink nor to cook because of leak plus till they found out kids get cancer---China is wanting it---let them have it--it will Not create the jobs like the GOPs have stated
Obama is trying to create jobs? why does he in to denver to give these speeches there? one of the fastest growing industries. and not in buffalo which is losing jobs. he wants to look like he is making the change that's why.
Even if they make a tax adjustment there still is going to be a stunt of growth. The rich only know what's on a print out of statistic of history. They don't know what's going on in the real world right now, and the poor don't trust the rich any more. They have been taking from the poor for the past 100 year's. I'm not sharing any more of my ideas to help. They just take it for their self with out sharing. I'm keeping my idea for my self to have something from. So how is the rich going to know what's out there to invest in? They can't.
Connie I agree on refineries but right now refineries are closing. Sunoco has closed down 2 here in the North East, and there thinking of closing another near the Philadelphia area. If they do that we are screwed here in the. North East. They blame it in the margin refiners are getting. That is why Exxon Mobil is getting out if the refining business.
president Obama has the right priorities. The GOP has hatred for anyone who isn't a straight WASP. Look - the old white guy regime is over. Get over yourselves and realize that you can't dictate morality or religion.
Alot of people that are reg Republicans are turning away from them and going Dem---a person that was in the service that protected Bush and Obama till he got out of the military changed from rep to Dem because he believes in them,GOPs are going crazy with crazy thoughts.
No one ask the rich guy to share--they just ask to pay their fair share--it's always on the middle class to pick their tabs up like they are on welfare and bottom line the rich want to pay it's the GOPs who don't
Look. All I ever hear from leftists is how great of a job thus guy has done. Give me content. What in the form of his overused executive orders, or signed legislation has he done to push America forward? I can give you a specific list of the many things he has done to make things worse. Anyone want to compare, and his lip service lies do not count. It has to be real things he has done.
@ stephen, the poor are the worker's the back bone. They have insight. They have idea's. They have the experience first hand of what is working and what is not. The rich underestimate the poor. Because they don't have money. Not all people choose to be cut throat. Not all people choose to be selfish. Not all people choose to be the way the rich are. That doesn't make the poor dumb! The rich are the one's sitting behind they're desk's. Not the poor.
You see this is what you dumb asses seem to forget. People are not going to give a shit when they pull up to the pump about any of this bullshit out of Obama's mouth. All they will care about is damn "why in the F am I paying 4.89 a gallon? And then they will say what the hell is Obama doing? And they will say how come he didn't want to build that pipeline?. That's reality and if you don't believe me then tell me with just weeks before 2008 election McCain was leading in the polls until the Market crashed and everyone turned on the Republicans. People will vote with their wallets and when gas and food are through the roof the guy in charge gets the blame.................Next

Marshall, for one he has got us out of Iraq, two he has stopped the losses of jobs that we were suffering under Bush or you forget the in January we lost 700,000 jobs, December before that 600.000 jobs and now we are gaining jobs for the past 23 months. Or you refuse to see that, just like fatso Limbaugh who says those numbers were made up because the head of the Labor department is a democrat and she is fudging those numbers
wait, so the hike at the gas pumps is Obama's fault. I can remember when Bush was president and you had stupid people blaming Bush for the same thing and the people from his party were saying the same thing. please, don't make me laugh! too late, I cant stop laughing!
jobs??? if you wanted jobs you would stop all the usless controlling regulations that are chasing companies out of this counbtry... you would allow the pipline... you are doing nothing but spending money on useless solar companies going bankrupt loosing our tax $$$ you are chasing down little kids in schools checking lunchboxes, you are playing games with americans lives and lying about everything. the best thing that will happen to this country will when you pack your bags and l;eave the whitehouse in jan 2013. NOBAMA 2012
Now after three years of his tripe he now wants to encourage jobs. Gas is going to be $5 a gallon this summer and the debt load is high and taxes are not falling while Europe is surfing from 50% unemployment and we suffer with over 20%....he has not plan to fix this, it's just words!
Frank Tricamo pipeline has nothing to do with the price of gas.....the oil will be sold on the global market....at GLOBAL PRICES
about a minute ago · Like
Franky half the people don't even know who their representatives are. Do you think they will know this? Think about it?
Eric Keystone won't help us one bit. In fact it will hurt us. Keystone will not increase our oil supply. All of the oil that will go through that pipeline if its built is all for export. Even the oil Canada ia sending now to the Midwest will be sent to Texas to be refined for export. So, Keystone will lower our oil supply.
Record profits for Microsoft,Dell,Hewlett Packer,Vizio,Nike,Levis the list semms endless. All of these Fortune 500 Corps have Zero manufacturing plants in the USA. They could care less about you. We should stop buying these products now.
Foxconn employs about 1 million workers at its massive plants in China that are run with military-like discipline. The workers assemble iPhones and iPads for Apple Inc., Xbox video game consoles for Microsoft Corp. and computers for Dell and Hewlett-Packard.
No Ron Shepard, blame the EPA and stupid regulations for high cost additives, blame the government ( state and local) for taxes. Exxons profit on a gallon of gas is 2.5 CENTS. That's right. Of course they make many other products, but gasoline is a high volume low profit product for oil companies. Do some research before making a fool out of yourself again.
Rodney Travis I work in the gas business. In the summer of 08 gas prices hit 4.34 a gallon and diesel was up to 5.05 here in New York state.<------That is correct, 2008 almost killed the most of the Owner operators and a lot of small truck driving companies.
@ Kary Coke ,,, Just think, If we get rid of obama and his “anti-drilling” policies. Use 100% of US oil. think of all the jobs that would open up.. but because obama is a dick head It will never happen..obama only has one plan, and that's to bend you over and kill America..
You are correct Chris T, but guess what, Women are paying attention, gays are paying attention, the elderly are paying attention. We see what the GOP is all about.
Obama will be reelected.
PS who would vote for Romney or Santorum???????
Mario Zambrano the repubs strategy to this economic turnaround is to try to instill fear to the american people by saying will be like Greece anytime soon! yes, I am really scared!
Mario do have a clue as to why they were rioting in the streets???
They got their entitlements cut because they couldn't afford them anymore. just think what will happen here when the checks don't go out.
Exxon profits only 2.5 cents per gallon ??? They've been preaching this BS for 30years. They sure protect their 2.5 cents like its all that matters to them. If you all believe that you're really messed up. As for the title of Obama's book "behind enemy lines". Its true !!! Big business, huge corporation are the enemy of the people. Always have been.
Stupid people like Brucey-boy have to get shown up day after day.
Gas prices and industry earnings: A few things to think about the next time you fill up
Here’s a simple fact of economics that’s getting everyone in Washington pretty excited this week: When prices increase for a commodity like oil, companies that produce and sell that commodity earn more money.
So, as we get ready to release our quarterly earnings on Thursday, here are a few things to consider when you see the inevitable headlines and sound bites about high gasoline prices and what to do about them. These facts probably won’t make anyone feel better about paying more for gasoline – and of course price increases can have a very real impact on family budgets – but I do think it’s important that we at least have an honest discussion about what’s behind recent energy price increases.
Less than 3 percent of ExxonMobil’s earnings are from U.S. gasoline sales
ExxonMobil’s earnings are from operations in more than 100 countries around the world. The part of the business that refines and sells gasoline and diesel in the United States represents less than 3 percent – or 3 cents on the dollar – of our total earnings. For every gallon of gasoline, diesel or finished products we manufactured and sold in the United States in the last three months of 2010, we earned a little more than 2 cents per gallon. That’s not a typo. Two cents.
This is coming from the same man who called us lazy and refuses to allow the Keystone Pipeline? Oh wait, Warren Buffet profits off of that. :/ And he profits off the oil going from Canada to China. Go figure.
Lenny that's the question I have. If we drill whose to say where the oil goes. Oil companies will send the oil to the rest of the world and the gas prices will continue to rise. I want to know how many people would be willing to put a memo to oil companies that state if they drill in America the oil stays in America.
folks, at the end of the day, we are all Americans and we all love our country, no matter what the right always says about us Liberals. I, for one, would never want the Pres to fail like they have. I never wished that on Bush or Reagan cause I respected the office of the President.
see folks, when they say that Obama wants to raise taxes what they won't tell you is that back when Reagan was president he raised taxes 4 times between 82 and 84 and we were in a crisis back then also but not as bad as this. He realized the we needed revenues as well! funny how they forget that... Reagan, the conservative God
Damn the torpedos full speed ahead when it comes to exposing the slimy underbelly of government and the office holders who accept the charms of the mistress of corruption.
Tea Party Patriots '''Ever Vigilant'''
I wish people would research a bit more before voicing opinions on ridiculously inaccurate things ... Obama has lower taxes now then Bush or even Regan .. While saying he supports illegal immigrants sounds great in the real world he has deported far more then Bush or even Regan and we have fewer coming in ... while saying he supports terrorism sounds cool reality is he killed Bin Laden and has worked out a better plan then playing cowboy and we have not had ANY terrorist attacks here ... If your going to hate on him at least be accurate .. or at the very least honest and just say it's cause he's black
How can you people be for punishing success and socialism that's not what made America great but it is what's making Greece Spain and France a he'll hole do you people not know how to put your bong down at get a job

The currant adminastrations dission is based on BIAS. They claim more time is needed to look into this project... meaning they won't approve it unless they get re-elected. Thats dirty politics, prejudism in any form is not welcome in America today.
