There is a good reason business's are not laying off people. First off Obozo has not created any jobs and second the people without jobs keep having babies and live well on welfare and food stamps. This is not a slam against the people that need to be on relief, just the idiots that don't want to work for a living and took all of Obozo's free gifts. Americans next gift, "Obozo moves out of the White House as this is his last term." It is a shame we have suffered for almost six years with this Know nothing/do nothing president.

Has anyone asked Obama how he feels about the "fastfooders" wanting a $15 an hour minimum wage?

Well stated, Ragnar.

74% of small business say they are reluctant to hire because they don't know the real impact of Obamacare yet.

Thanks Barry.

About 70% of those "new jobs" created are part time McJobs in the service area with little or no benefits.

Hope & Change!

Still blaming Bush more than five years into his administration.

Remember when Bush blamed Clinton for the dot**** bust, recession and terror attack that he left behind? Me neither.

Bush was dealt a lousy hand and he did the best he could and never-NEVER-blamed Clinton.

His only deficit approaching $1 trillion was in his final budget year, due to the Social Democrat party real estate bust recession.

After his tax cuts and before the bubble burst, his annual deficit was down to $162 billion. That is still a deficit but it is much less than the $1 trillion deficits Soetero has had every year.

Bush also passed EIGHT consecutive budgets while Barry has yet to pass a SINGLE budget (though this is required by law-who cares about the law?)

Bush was not a true conservative and he spent far too much money, in my opinion, but he was a good and decent man. He had an awesome First Lady for a wife. He had dignity and he respected the office.
