Everyone is sitting in baited anticipation for President Obama's 'After Labor Day' Jobs Creation Plan speech and it had better be an all encompassing eye-popping whiz-banger, in order to keep people from quickly laughing it off!

Mr. Obama needs to stand up for the people who worked to get him elected. The time for playing politics is done; he needs to fight for people's right, not compromise with the fat cat Repugnant Party and their wealthy sponsors.

We are also going to have to do our part if he does come out with a big bold plan. You can bet the republicans are going to do everything they can to block it. We have to begin putting pressure on Congress immediately after he presents his plan otherwise it will have no chance of passage and we will be left right where we are right now. We have to make it perfectly clear to republicans that if they fail to act they will be joining us in the unemployment line at the end of next year.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to John because you have done so within the last week.


John S.; No, of course not ... But nobody wants burnt bacon either and we are afraid that President Obama's 'NEW'(?) Jobs Creation Plan will in reality fall far short of the needed 2+ million jobs as required by the 2009 federal assessment ... To be created No Later Than late 2009(cannot underline 2009) ...

And this is 2011!

> Quote From: "Is President Obama Responsible For The Mess We Are In? @ Before It's News:

"The White House was fully economically advised that the United States would seriously suffer if there were not 2+ million jobs created beginning in late 2009 and into 2011 ... well guess what! ..."

"And looking at the hardcore reality of evidence or rather the lack thereof, as we watch our nation derailing and skidding into the gutter at a frightening pace."

"We are probably already beyond any possible recovery, unless President Obama enacts one of his empty Campaign 2008 promises to rebuild America's infrastructure with GREEN ALTERNATIVE ENERGY reconstruction projects, that would help to save the environment and lift the United States of America up from its impoverished D+ infrastructure safety-rating as of 2009, which would rebuild America's roads, bridges, dams, tunnels & electric grids; thus creating those aforementioned 2+ million desperately needed jobs across the nation!"

"There 'would have been' or could still become our 2+ million jobs creation, but the monetary allocations have already become known as the STIMULUS PACKAGES, which has also miserably failed."

"Is President Obama going to start throwing 'clunkers' at the problem (referring to Obama's 2008 cash for old American automobiles = 'clunkers' program, which also shriveled and disappeared!) and try to trade them to pay-down our toxic multi-trillion dollar debt to China???"


What is President Obama and the U.S. Congress waiting for???

Because this is what is causing many Americans to assume the worst case scenario of a 'Kill the Middle-Class of America' conspiracy!!!

why is it we seemed to have forgotten all the jobs shipped over seas uunder the Republicans watch Ala Bush
What is going on now is just the same old same old.The businesses that are left are using less workers.They make them work harder with little pay increase.They are breakinng up unions as this is written.They are causing thousands of public jobs to be lost.They are even forcing the post office to cut back annd eventually close altogether.Sure I am not thrilled with President Obama either,but we are devided so much that a 3rd party will only insure the demise of this great country becoming a spoil for mega corporations. Come on does anybody really believe that even one Republicaan or Tea party vote will change for a 3rd party.If we want to do something we should march on Washington and our state houses. We should also buy less from corporations until they again become servants to us . Of Course Pigs Will Be Flying by Then.Lets face it we are destine to again become slaves or at tthe most serfs of the few.And our inactions brought this to reality.Diid you ever think what 20 mmillion phone calls to The White House would do?How about a 100 million letters there? All saying we got your back noow do what wesent you there to do.There would be so many bathroom accidents in Congress ,more jobs would be created just to clean them up. We are and always will be the majority.The FEW know this probably have nightmares about it. What a shame we forgot it.

> CNN Breaking News - 08.31.11 12:23 PM:

President Barack Obama has sent a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid requesting the opportunity to lay out his jobs plan before a joint session of Congress at 8 p.m. ET on September 7.

"It is my intention to lay out a series of bipartisan proposals that the Congress can take immediately to continue to rebuild the American economy by strengthening small businesses, helping Americans get back to work, and putting more money in the paychecks of the Middle Class and working Americans, while still reducing our deficit and getting our fiscal house in order," the president wrote. "It is our responsibility to find bipartisan solutions to help grow our economy, and if we are willing to put country before party, I am confident we can do just that."


Okay, now we have heard it, so now let's see some based-in-reality action.

Talk is cheap Mr. President and we are tired of talk and empty promises too!!!

No doubt, Obama will, ho hum, try to compromise AGAIN. When will he ever learn? Repugs will never agree to anything he proposes. If, in fact, they do, it'll be on their terms only, i.e. cut out all regulations and entitlements, and not to forget, REINSTATE BUSH TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH PERMANENTLY. Obama better not cave.

I can't actually give any credence to the attached article, but this jobs plan has been a long time coming. It doesn't matter what he tries, the Republicans will say no and try to block it until he and the weak-willed Democrats compromise. Neither party cares about the majority of Americans, particularly the Repubs, so this will be another embrassment. But then, our Congress hasn't done anything in this 3 years either. And, remember, they are the legislators, not the President.

President Barack Obama has called George W. Bush "irresponsible" and "unpatriotic" for spending 4 trillion dollars during his 8 year presidency. Now Obama has spent 4 trillion dollars in just 2 1/2 years, so what do you call that??? Just think about it.

The Department of Labor has released its ugly unemployment facts and figures today 09.02.11, and it confirms stagnation in any U.S. economic recovery. Some analysts are also going public today and stating that another Recession has now become inevitable.

The truth is out there and incomprehensible!

It took decades of administrations enveloped by arrogance and greed to create the 14 million trapped in massive U.S. unemployment.

It's now on congress, but Obama has not produced real job legislation either.

Some 73% of Americans say the country is heading in the wrong direction, a level of pessimism not seen since late 2008.

Nearly 44% now say they will vote Republican in 2012.

Many different polls are now reflecting nearly this exact same general opinion.

There are those who will attempt to throw mud all over the facts, but they cannot ultimately extinguish the truth!

The once muscular and robust Obama presidency has now undergone a dramatic downsizing.

Three polls on Tuesday revealed he is quickly losing core support and even the dwindling Obama die-hards are beginning to question his limited abilities.

Trying to reach everyone:

Don't just tell me to vote for Obama ... Convince me why I and others should do so!

We must review ALL of the facts and we must know the whole truth and not just half-truths before making a rational 2012 election decision!

If we go around wearing 'rose colored glasses', then how can we ever make the right choice???

I myself will either vote Third Party or else exercise my right to not vote at all, but I refuse to just vote for Obama because a few Care2 bullies 'try' to force me to!!!

It's my decision too, you know!

Post any and all counter-evidence here or on the main site comment line, in order to prove beyond a shadow of doubt that President Barack Obama deserves another 4 More Years in the highest office of the land.

NO Republicanophobia or Anti-Social Racism!
