I've been told many times by people on TH; government doesn't create jobs.

Who do you think pays the salaries of government workers? We the people do. Government never produces anything but more laws to take away more freedoms. Tell me when government made any money itself. And leave taxpayers' money out of your answer.

More accurately, it creates short-term jobs.

It can certainly get in the way of creating jobs, though.

gov't has to enable a decent business climate.

except that Comrade Hussein is doing the opposite.
Deliberately.
It's all part of his efforts to weaken the US economically,politically,and militarily.
"once is accidental,twice is coincidence,three times is enemy action."
Comrade Obama IS the muslim Manchurian Candidate.

they don't but they can sure make it much more difficult for the private sector to create jobs with stupid policies.....elections do have consequences and in this case the consequence is massive joblessness, drastic increases in the number of people living in poverty, and a mass exodus of jobs leaving the country

only those who can afford not to work or have been responsible and paid off their homes and debts are going to financially survive the next four years

SO..One point. After the BP explosion and oil spill, OBAMA ORDERED ALL the Gulf Coast Oil platforms SHUT TOWN...a process which he does NOT have the legal authority to do...after months of inactivity, the platforms were taken elsewhere. THOUSANDS lost their jobs in the oil business. A Federal Judge ORDERED obama to allow drilling, He ignored that! You trust this guy? Got ocean-front property in Iowa ...

EPA regs on coal-fired plants;raises the cost of electric power and directly affects the economy. Comrade also closed Yucca Mountain "safe storage" for nuclear waste,hampering nuclear power. then he has blocked permits for domestic oil production,closed off government land for oil and mineral production.

Yikes,are you uninformed,Lois. or intentionally obtuse. probably both.

Many keen political observers have noticed the complete lack of a serious jobs plan, let alone an open and honest discussion about ways his administration can spur economic growth, in the president’s second inaugural address. In many respects, this comes as no surprise: the president ran a maliciously negative and unserious campaign that sought to destroy his political opponent at all costs. And it worked. But with another recession possibly on the horizon, shouldn’t this issue have been substantively addressed at some point during his somewhat lengthy remarks? The Wall Street Journal’s Stephen Moore addressed this question in a...
