  • Five million fewer people employed? That can't be. Preserving the Bush tax cuts for the "job creators" wouldn't allow that to happen. Maybe you meant 5 million fewer Americans employed? The job creators excel at creating jobs but they just don't seem interested in creating them in this country.

    Best explanation of the recess appointment I've found:

  • Who is Obamao? Must be a typo or maybe there is an lonesome bridge somewhere.

  • Read carefull,I said it was not enough but the trends in the last six months gives ME cause for optimism...Am I supposed to have a gloom-and-doom outlook no matter what the numbers say?

    Your dear leader President George W. Bush made 171 recess appointments..I am fully aware of the Pro Forma rules but I.m also aware of the gimicky and misinterpretation of thsoe rules and in your case the constitution.

    My ilk? I heard some Republican candidates wanting to repeal Roe v Wade and introduce an amendment to ban gay marriage...I never advocated changing the Constitution....Another case of "Every one out of step but Willy."

    Why all the anger over my personal opinion?

  • Since you were ecstatic about the recent BLS report, you might temper your ecstasy with the fact that there are five million fewer people employed in this country today than were employed at the same point in 2007. Bush has been out of office for three years, so it is now your beloved ObaMao's economy, which he is slowly but surely running into the ground.

    So you concede that the appointment of Richard Cordray was "...without the consent of Congress.", yet you proceed to applaud this action. Is there any unconstitutional action your Dear Leader could take with which you would have a problem? Apparently not. The "...arcane rules of the Senate..." with which you take issue are explicitly stated in the Constitution, Article I, Section 5, to wit: "Each house may determine the Rules of its Proceedings...". If the Senate says it is in session, it is in session until the Senate says otherwise. You may search the Constitution in vain for any provision allowing the Executive Branch to make a decision on whether or not either house of Congress is in session; it is not there. As has been said before, you and your ilk see the Constitution as a pesky impediment to what you want to do to us, all in our own best interests, of course.

    Great to hear from you again.

    Yes the GOP has selected amnesia  because President Bush had 171 recess appointments. Supply side economics (trickle-down) has run it's 30 year course..It does not work.

    I love your last paragraph but 20% of this country will never understand your message....They are trying to return us to the 1950s.

  • The GOP's grumbling about the appointment is just that but if they would like for the American public to review the fiscal collapse and convince us that too much regulation is what caused it then it sounds like good sport.

    It is a great day in our country because the way things are shaping up in less than a year our people will choose between a black and a Mormon to lead us. Greatest country on earth without a doubt.

    Your comment was deleted for being off topic...You can now go back to your sandbox.

  • Give a couple of GOP presidential candidates(Santorum & Romney) credit for having chutzpah. Blaming the current president for a bad economy is fair game in any election period, but it seems to me if we get some positive numbers, he should get a little bit of credit.

    Mitt Romney flatly stated that President Obama gets absolutely no credit for Friday's job report.... Rick Santorum jokingly said that the boost was tied to voters’ optimism that a Republican would win the White House. Really, the GOP controlled House of Representatives has a 11% approval. What has the house of representatives passed to improve the job numbers? They passed partisan bills that would never be passed in the senate, and two or three abortion bills.

  • That's OK because impeach is just charging a public official...The president has not done anything for him to be found guilty and removed from office or censured.
    As you know the house would have to charge the president with an impeachable offense but the senate would have to convict...The Dems have 53 senators;bring it.

    These penny ante rules in the senate have to be challenged...I don't mind a Mr.Smith goes to Washington filibuster but let's make them stay on the senate floor for the duration.
