@Jeff Klass. You say, Funny - looking at the founding documents hanging on the wall in my office, I see "Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness", not "food on my plate, healthcare & a J-O-B. But then the leftys never did like the constitution, did they. It's not Ryan's job, Obama's job or any other politicians job to create jobs. Their collective job is to MINIMIZE the influence and effect they have on on people's lives - not maximize it. The left just doesn't get that this country was founded on samll government, Large indivdual liberty. Yes, that means the opportunity tro succeed beyond your neighbor (a good thing) anfd it means the opportunity to FAIL. Just what the hell is the Republican party's message here? You say the country was founded on small government? Who says? Today, it ain't no small government when a political party snoops in private lives such as reproductive rights, gays, etc., etc. It's more like fascist, nazism to me!! Nobody at that hall was asking for any handouts, just what the hell is he doing to fix the economy and exactly what the hell does he do anyways?? Take the blinds off, buddy.

@Mike in OC. You quote to Deborah: "@Deborah... what has King Obama done to help employment numbers?" We wouldn't know because his "Jobs for America" was thrown out by an obnoxious Congress that is hell-bent on obstructing, impeding, slamming, thwarting, and plain old crybaby tea partiers, and other Repubklans refusing to buckle down and cooperate and compromise with Obama. By the way, it wasn't Obama's fault for this entire economic mess and no President, Dem or Repub can repair this issue in 3 1/2 years in office, moron1

@occocoob.... nice job being subtle throwing out the race card...... Repubklans. Obmama had a Democrat madate his first 2 years in office.... so nice try passing the blame. You sound like my kids coming up with excuse after excuse but not accepting personal responsibilty. Keep throwing out the race card and making up excuses.... it's helping our cause.
