head-winds from Europe, Japanese earthquake and resultant tsunami, bad winter weather, ATMs, airport ticket kiosks (oh, if only we had more ticket agents in airports the country's problems would be solved), GWB, this boy president obama is like a pre-teen who fails at everything and wins nothing. He's pathetic with all his annoying excuse-making.

But, Rick, don't you understand that the way to improve the economy is to suck up more money from the private sector and use it to burden the unfunded public sector liabilities even more by hiring more teachers and firefighters?

Some awesome news: all 17 states that elected a Republican governor in 2010 has seen a reduction in their unemployment levels. In just over a year and a half since those new executives took office, these states have seen some serious improvement:

Kansas - 6.9% to 6.1% = a decline of 0.8%

Maine - 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%

Michigan - 10.9% to 8.5% = a decline of 2.4%

New Mexico - 7.7% to 6.7% = a decline of 1.0%

Oklahoma - 6.2% to 4.8% = a decline of 1.4%
