Cutting corporate taxes is a great start.

Grand bargain' for jobs’, would be better left to private businesses.

There seems to be no situation so bad that government programs can't make it worse.

Obama wants to "invest" in job creation. Wasn't that what he told us about the bailouts and the so called "stimulus package"? Didn't he promise millions of new jobs would be created by those "investments"? And he thinks more "investments" will be any better? Mr. President the government can not create jobs the private sector does that.

IEONY OF THE DAY: Republicans oppose their own platform. Obama is proposing to cut corporate taxes from 31 to 25% for manufacturers, more than Republicans have called for, and still Republicans don't like it. They have no rationale for opposing their own idea, except that now Obama agrees with them. Their hatred for him extends even to opposing their own platform. I have never in my life seen this kind of partisanship.

Irony guy,
no, obviously you misread the article.

BO is running the classic bait-and-switch

BO is offering NOTHING solid, NOTHING substantial, NOTHING definite.

The repubs aren't going to leave themselves open to a nebular proposal from BO to "invest in jobs" (whatever he means by that) and start to agree with him, just to see him renig on his agreements.

Didn't Obama already invest a trillion on "job creation"? Aren't we still running high unemployment and low labor participation rates?

If he hasn't figured out how to get businesses to create jobs over the past 4 1/2 years, what makes us think that this time he will actually do something beneficial for all american businesses?

HEADLINES: GOP loves that Obama proposes to reduce Corporate Taxes(Romney's Plan), but hate that Obama wants to spend more money adding more to the debt and that he calls that Job Creation? You would think this guy learned from cash for clunkers, stimulus, and his other hair-brained ideas.....that THE Gov't doesn't create anything but more debt! If he just dropped the corporate rate alone, the economy would fix itself without his help!
