You're talking about 15% of the American People... Double the poverty any time in American History... 15% of the American people are NOT dissing the system, most of them are struggleing inside the system... Living in their motorhomes since thier houses have been foreclosed on... At least 25% of the current poverty level Americans once made hundreds of thousand of dollars and can in no way accept this level as appropriate... Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers of all kinds and of course the top-line Executives that always seem to lose their jobs during tough times are currently using food stamps to eat and Obamaphones to find work. $50 in food and 1 hour of phone time each week is hardly "hustling the system"

I wish Obama and the Democrats could be as passionate about jobs as they are about, say, the contents of Happy Meals. Or the dust from cement factories. Or the habitat of the red-cockaded woodpecker.

While the wizard of DC remains a master of illusion and delusion, focusing everyone’s attention on the man behind the curtain- and his 20 Little Martyrs- the jobless recovery now enters its fifth year with no signs that hiring will be picking up soon.

So instead of worrying about the peckers, I wonder about the 12 million martyrs who remain unemployed. And the 3.6...
