From Feb. 3, 2009 – USA TODAY – (See article here)The Congressional Budget Office says Obama’s economic stimulus package of spending programs and tax cuts would create 1.2 million to 3.6 million jobs. The economic consulting firm IHS Global Insight puts the number at 2.6 million.The administration estimates that unemployment would be 7% at the end of 2010 — barely below the current 7.2% rate.“The bottom line is this: You’ve got a piece of legislation that creates jobs,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said after several questions. “The latest statistics based on the economic reports show that 90% of these jobs are private-sector jobs.”
The Winston Group’s New Models National Survey revealed the shift in the most recent poll. Asked if the state of the economy is “more the result of President Obama’s policies or President Bush’s policies,” the public is evenly divided at 42 percent for each as recently as October.In July Bush was still getting the blame, 56 percent to Obama’s 29 percent. “The public may have held Bush more responsible earlier in the year, but as of the beginning of October, it was at parity with Obama’s policies. This should be very concerning for the White House. President Obama is just now beginning to fully own the economy, and we have already seen significant drops in his job approval,” said Winston pollster Myra Miller.
Here is the poll:
Do you think that at this point, the state of the economy if more the result of Pres. Obama’s policies or Pres. Bush’s policies?

The Obama Administration is also fond of claiming that the GOP has no solutions. No Solutions is quite different than not inviting the GOP to the table and ignoring them. As a matter of fact, Minority Whip Eric Cantor held a discussion at the Heritage Foundation yesterday that was a common sense approach. I watched it live on Facebook and you can read about it here.
Americans want jobs, not welfare.
Create jobs for Americans, not jobs for Bureaucrats.
STOP THE SPENDING.
Obama and his team of Socialists and Tax Cheats are meeting today to discuss jobs. for three hours. they are calling it a Summit.
Make no mistake, folks – this is a Second “Stimulus” plan and he will be asking for billions to fund it. Combined with his first “Stimulus” plan (FAIL) and the proposed healthcare plan (SOON TO FAIL) – Obama has spent trillions this year and placed us in debt for the foreseeable future with no Hopium left…
AND NO RESULTS.
Lady Libertas has just one question –
President Obama – do we look like Mrs. Obama??????
