Hey, Obama tell them they can be just like Minnesota. Our unemployment rate went down, and all we had to do was lose 11,400 jobs in April! FORWARD!!!!!!!!!

Deficit falling, revenues increasing, unemployment falling, jobs increasing, wars ending, housing market awakening... whatever should the teapublicans in Congress do? Should they focus like a laser on jobs, jobs, jobs.. or fail again at repealing Obamacare? Should they take advantage of record low interest rates and work towards a bipartisan infrastructure bill, or continue filibustering sensible legislation that 90% of the public is in favor of? Should they work in a bipartisan fashion towards an immigration bill, or should they falsify more documents in an attempt to breath life into their manufactured scandal over BENGHAZI!!!!!!!!?

dogman, I know! Right here in MN our unemployment rate fell, and only 11,400 jobs were "shed." Things are awesome!!!! Obama's "Jobs" record STINKS, and his attempt to deflect attention from HIS 3 MAJOR scandals ain't gonna happen. Let's get the answers, and hold those involved in the corruption accountable, and I for one hope that Obama is implicated for the sake of MY country.

dogman, wow, what country do you live in? We should all move there. No party had to manufacture any scandals. Obama is doing fine on his own. Here's the deal and I'll bet your Mom and Dad taught you this - if you cheat, lie, threaten, steal, treat people like garbage, it will all come back to bite you. That's what is happening with the 0bamanator!

dogman, Deficit growing, taxes increasing, unemployment falling as more people drop out of the market, lower job creation each month' , housing market awakening due to the feds artificially low interest rates, whatever should the DFL do? Should they focus like a laser on jobs, jobs, jobs.. or fail again implementing Obamacare? Should they work in a bipartisan fashion towards an immigration bill that lets everyone in, or should they continue to point fingers at everybody else regarding the Benghazi coverup, IRS and AP scandal.

The real headline shouldn't read....Obama: 'Our focus cannot drift' from jobs, economy, as he leaves scandal-engrossed Washington.....Instead it should read.....Obama: 'Our focus cannot drift' from my fundraiser in Vegas a day after Benghazi, as he leaves scandal-engrossed Washington...again".

"Obama's "Jobs" record STINKS" -- in just over 4 years, stepping into the biggest economical and fiscal mess we've faced in 70 years, and in the face of a aggressively obstructionist Congress, he's created more private sector jobs than his predecessor did in 8 year ________ "deflect attention from HIS 3 MAJOR scandals" -- you mean the 'worse than Watergate' scandals? The 'scandals' that would be his Waterloo? Like the birth certificate 'scandal'? The Joe Sestak 'bribe scandal'? The FEMA Detention Camps 'scandal'? Or are you talking about the recent 'scandals'? It's rather telling how the Obama haters abandon the specifics of their complaints and retreat to vague, non-specific reasons to hate the current president. The 'smoking gun' BENGHAZI!!!!! emails are no longer mentioned now that they have proven to not only support the President's side of the story, but also having proven Issa to be the liar we've always known him to be. As a result.. the argument against President Obama has been reduced to wild rants of how inexperienced he is, how experienced he is in Chicago-style politics, how weak he is, how he intimidates his opponents, how stupid he is, how shrewd he is. The haters don't even notice how they contradict themselves. A little less than four more years and they can turn their hate towards President Clinton for eight more years. And I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.
