And you don't think Obama is playing politics? Romney launched an ad highlighting how Obama has done nothing to address the unfair economic policies of China; guess who just filed a complaint. That is right, in direct response to Romney's attack Obama acted. Not last year, not two years ago ; now. Why, because it is an election year and President Dip-Sh!t needs to look like he is doing some thing, anything. It is the same reason he issued that dictate for illegals two months ago, Dream Act Light. Obama promised Immigration Reform in his first year and did nothing. Second year, nothing, third the same. Now as a desperate attempt to pander to Latinos he gave out his command to change policy, no vote, no approval, just the whims of a desperate man desperate to cling to power.

Obama is focused like a laser beam on important issues like women in combat, free contraception, gay marriage, open borders and football injuries.

Get over yourself, Preliar. January's Strong Jobs Report Trumps a Decline in GDP The Bureau of Labor Statistics, a unit of the Labor Department, said the January increase in nonfarm payrolls was 157,000, close to the 165,000 median estimate of economists surveyed by Bloomberg. The unemployment rate, which is based on another survey, rose a tick to 7.9 percent, from 7.8 percent. But the big surprise was the upward revision in job growth at the end of 2012. The economy added 247,000 jobs in November and 196,000 in December, the BLS said. That’s a total of 127,000 more for the two months than previously estimated. Bottom line: Friday’s report is truly good news, indicating that this week’s report of a decline in GDP was probably a false alarm. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-02-01/januarys-strong-jobs-report-trumps-a-decline-in-gdp Oh, and by the way, Consumer Confidence is down because Americans do not trust dysfunctional, obstructionist Republicans to do anything. And Obama's favorables are the highest they've been since O9 when he inherited an economy of the verge of collapse. You need to find a new pony to ride. Pathetic you have to go back to an article from September to find a reason to spew your extremism.

So we add almost a half a million jobs and the un-employment rate still rose? Care to explain? (oh i know why). Just want to have a good laugh at your propaganda machine based answers. "dysfunctional , obstructionist republicans" are the reason consumer confidence is down? Republicans lost their power years ago. Libs are driving the bus. You see the people that have money to spend if they choose tend to be hard working , Independent types. All the people on the government "tit" never have extra to spend due to the choices they have made. Thus the lack in consumer spending would actually fall on the shoulders of hard working , self-reliant people. People who do not trust the present administration i would imagine. See Hazel , some of us can even think for ourselves , regardless what some may think. Pathetic you have to use propaganda to replace rational thought.
