    Republican government doesn't create any jobs.

    Obama has been expected to stop recesions without money, create jobs without money, stop leaking oil rigs without "", make sure there's no terrorists attacks "", (even though Bush spent trillions to do that) and he's supposed to pay off the national debt without any money too.

    Someone here is crazy or lying.

    My fellow Republicans, Mitt Romney has repeatedly and unequivocally said "government does not create jobs".

    So why would anyone expect President Barack Hussein Obama to create jobs, and how can anyone avoid hypocrisy while judging Obama for how well he creates jobs?

    Mitt Romney claimed to be a job creator, but admitted Government can't - or shouldn't - do that. So America took him seriously and put him where he could do what he does best: back in the private sector, and away from government.

    Can we at least pretend to have a coherent position?

    Actually, if you take out the first 6 months, Obama has a pretty good job creation record.

    It could have happened already if the House and Senate GOP had not blocked all efforts to do so.
