The new Republican-led House promised "jobs are are number 1 priority." So what has the Right done to fulfill their promise to the American voter?
So you were asking to give Obama more time after 2 years and trillions in spending and you want the republicans to solve the problem in a couple of months without even having a majority in the senate?
All the Repubs harped about before they were elected was jobs.
"Elect us, we will give you the jobs that Obama isn't"
"Extend the tax-cuts for the wealthy--That will create jobs."
No, if I do recall, the wingnuts started slinging crap about two months into his Administration. And no, I want them to admit they don't have the answers either and that they snowed the conservative and Tea Party voter into believing otherwise.
Listen - you make big promises and blame the Left for all the country's ills, you have to eventually pay the piper when you have some say in leadership. So come on LEAD!
Lol! You want leadership?? Look at your guy and the dumb democrats who can't come up with more than 4 billion about the deficit for a days worth of spending!! The only thing democrats are good at is giving out free stuff for votes! The are gutless coward losers that have brought this country to its knees... I have no doubt the republicans will fix things after they win in 2012 by 2014.
LaLo - the point is that being opposed to President Obama is not a policy.
Being opposed to democrats is not a policy.
Being opposed to progressives is not a policy.
The House has produced hot air and cheap theatrics. And it shows.
Lady be crefull here, we have many liberal Repubs also, and so far, nothing to spur real debate, majority or not. We got a mess, and Both will be needed and they are "NOT" there in mind set.
They are all for sale, and we all deserve a lot more than what we got.
I am on your side, but something in the back of my head says
"Be carefull what you ask for, you just might get it!"
Exactly--Speaker of the House decides the agenda.....
That would be you Boehner.
So what are they going to do in the meantime -- besides nothing?

Republicans like Boehner will shed a tear when asked about THEIR federal job, but when the topic of you losing YOUR federal job, they respond: "So be it."http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/02/ … XO20110215BTW- He also lied about how many jobs were in question as well...just to...

During the 2010 mid-terms the GOP campaigned fiercely on the platform of job creation and, as a result of such promises, the GOP gained the majority in the House of Representatives. As the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner made the welcome claim that the primary goal of the Republican Party...

Is speaker Boehner right for not wanting to raise the debt ceiling and these words that were said?"... raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial...
