    Gary (there you go again) O

    Republican Obstructionism. When? The Democrats had 100% power when Obama was elected. Fillabuster proof Senate. They had total control of everything until 2011. What did they do with those two years? Pass an unpopular health care plan. They squandered so much of what you seem to think the Republicans have stopped. Or did they? Have you ever considered we are now seeing the fruits of Liberal Democrat policy? Pelosi and Reid began running the budget in 2007 when the Democrats took over Congress, (Bush years) and then had it all with Obama. Look where we are. These are the fruits of Democrats running things. It is yours and Obamas responsibility. "By their fruits, you shall know them". Own it.

    Followers of liberals are keeping this nation in a downward spiral.

    If it wasn't for Republican Obstructionism we would not have an employment problem in the United States.

    Obama's 2011 Jobs' Bill would have employed millions, but regressive "Conservatives" shot it down.

    Republicans have been keeping this nation down for far too long.

    Offer to extend benefits for 6 weeks and watch them flock back in. Watch the unemployment rate jump at least 2 points. They aren't employed. They are at home, or homeless, and totally depressed.

    I love it when they decide the unemployment rate by how many apply for unemployment benefits, when the benefits have run out for many, and are running out for many more. Those people, conveniently for liberals, drop off the radar.

    Anything to make the Obama look good. Nothing to help the unemployed/underemployed.

    Democrats rejoicing over this is the ultimate slap in the face on those suffering from the bad economy.

    But at least the rich democrat donors are doing better than ever.

    Or they have gotten themselves a McJob. Obamas job creation such as it is, has been low wage type jobs for the most part. Plus of course the people not counted who just stopped looking and are waiting for a real recovery. That of course won't happen until the Republicans are in charge again. Hopefully beginning in 2014 and 2016. Right now, the American work force is at one of its lowest in modern times.

    A sign their benefits have run out?

    What is sparking this recovery?
