    Jeff, keep drinking the Koolaid. Public employment is NOT the answer to a growing economy and never has been. Keynsian policies of growing the public sector have never worked. And, frankly, again check the facts, private sector employment growth since the end of the most recent recession, also has significantly lagged behind other recoveries.


    Brilliant Obama racks up another stupid gaffe
    For a brilliant guy he sure says a lot of stupid things. Obama’s latest gaffe was so bad that even Candy Crowley was hammering David Axelrod on it. Obama claimed that the private sector was doing just fine and basically he already fixed that – it was just state & local governments that are struggling. Hear Crowley go after Axelrod and check out Glenn’s dismantling of Obama’s contention HERE.


    Offended: Obama cries foul on question about national security leaks
    The President proved he is easily offended on Friday when he snapped back at a reporter who insinuated national security leaks might be coming from inside the White House. Considering how vital the President’s national security record is for his re-election effort, the question wasn’t that off base. The President’s blatant refusal to face the facts has once again landed him on Glenn’s coward list.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Most of this whole page is “The Jeff Show.” Where you can always count on idiotic excuses for the Oblunder administration, and outright lies about Fox News. Did Bill O’Reilly ever drop Jeff on his head when he was a baby, which I think, wasn’t too long ago? Everytime I stop to read a post by this STILL baby, my Bulls–tometer goes off and I have to go to the next post.

    I also feel like an idiot by wasting my own time writing the above.

  • Jeff

    Yes I will second that for you Ralph, you should feel like an idiot!!

  • Jeff


    Will check it out for ya, and just plug my nose while I’m reading ;)

  • Jeff


    Yes you are correct that it is lagging compared to other recessions.
    But that’s about all I would agree with your post.

  • Jeff

    Glens coward list makes President Obama a Hero.

    President Obama gave the order to take out Osama bin laden, while Beck is praying for reasons for Americans to buy food insurance, playing dress up in military outfits.

    You can draw your own conclusions on that BS.

    ROTHLMAO!!!!!! He flew over Wisc on his way from fund raiser to fund raiser!!!! :lol: :lol:

    Obama Defends Lack Of Pre-Recall WI Visits: Busy With ‘A Lot Of Responsibilities’

    In an interview Monday with WBAY Green Bay (CBS), President Barack Obama explained his lack of appearances in Wisconsin in the months leading up to last week’s recall election, saying that he is busy with “a lot of responsibilities” and “would have loved to see a different result.”

    Obama has been criticized by Democrats for doing little more than tweeting his support for Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett‘s failed attempt to unseat Republican Governor Scott Walker in the recall election.

    Interesting Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About These TV Personalities


  • Ratboy

    Government worker unemployment rate 4.2%!!!
    Okay all you liberals hold up your LEFT hand and count 4 fingers. That is how many % lower than the national unemployment rate

  • Steve Perry

    “Yes I am sick of paying pensions for teachers ,police and firefighters.
    Teachers in the public system are overpaid babysitters
    Firefighters sit around and make spagetti all day
    Police hang out in doughnut shops all day”

    -That mentality is exactly why I left the Republican Party.

  • Steve Perry

    @ratboy … “Government worker unemployment rate 4.2%”

    -Whether one works for the government or the private sector, they’re still Americans working…why can’t you righties get that through your thick heads.

  • PaulG

    @ Jeff

    Mitt Romney Campaign Keeps Many Secrets, Unless Required By Law

    as opposed to the Obama administration,,that can’t keep a secret even if someone else’s life depended on it…

  • Jeff

    Steve Perry
    What’s sad about the remarks against cops, teachers and firemen is that is was not a gaffe by Mittwitt, we meant every word of it, he had his blubber mouth John Sinunu out today making the same remarks.

    Ratboy re: undocumented, not true!! Lou Dobbs has rotted your brain just a tad ;)

    Nick czar, that post makes you a loon!!

  • Ratboy

    @ Ratboy re: undocumented, not true

    Then what are they?? There are laws yep laws that EVERYONE needs to be documented one way or the other. When you break a law it is illegal therefore if you are undocumented you are illegal

  • Jeff

    PaulG, Every admin has leakers, unless you have been under a rock your whole life. Don’t act like that a leak is unheard of…

  • d.d.

    “Yes I am sick of paying pensions for teachers ,police and firefighters.
    Teachers in the public system are overpaid babysitters
    Firefighters sit around and make spagetti all day
    Police hang out in doughnut shops all day”

    @Steve Perry
    -That mentality is exactly why I left the Republican Party.

    While I have a substantive bias against public pensions , REM’s blatant blanket comments are untrue . I would hope she meant them ‘tongue in cheek.’ These indivuals
