HAHAHA don't you get the irony, you tell us how bad life is in Ohio and then say, but Obama has done a lot. Yes, indeed a lot?
The 1% and greed have ruined this country. I see the class warfare schtick is working.

Wrong, who is govexec. blogs anyway? I wrote 107 thousand the number is actually higher.
"We turned, as we always do, to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the official statistician for the United States labor force.

BLS calculates two categories that illuminate Boehner’s comment.

The first is the overall rise in federal employees between January 2009 and January 2011. The net increase was 58,000.

The second is the number of federal employees without counting U.S. Postal Service workers. Over that same two-year period, the increase was 140,800."

Oh okay not a ploy just doing a great job, after a year of dithering he is finally getting around to a State of the Union promise. The fact remains it is 3 billion over 10 years which is more than likely not going to happen and not one dime of it has been realized yet. It's just a proposal.

No. http://blogs.govexec.com/fedblog/2011/02/has_obama_added_200000_new_fed.php

<<.Obuma has issued an executive order within the past two weeks to combine federal agencies, an election year ploy>>

A ploy? Nope. It's what he promised in his State of the Union address.

1. Obamacare adds various hidden taxes some related to healthcare others not, Readily accessible on internet
2.Under Obama the number of federal non postal worker employees has grown 107 thousand in two years. readily accessible on internet.
3.Obuma has issued an executive order within the past two weeks to combine federal agencies, an election year ploy. Money saved so far zero, proposed amount to be saved (LOLnever ever will happen) 3 billion over 10 years. Regulations; "132 “economically significant” rules" 40% more than under Bush.or Clinton. More to come in healthcare and finance reform. readily accessible on the internet.
5.Cap and trade is a terrible idea several nations including Canada, are backing away from it. readily accessible on internet.
6.Obamacare and it's individual mandate will be decided in the Supreme Court. Most conservatives won't defend previous Republican pandering through ill advised government intrusions into healthcare via things like the individual mandate.

IMO, the reason so many are eligable for Food Stamps is because employers are not giving back what was taken.

No, Songwright gave opinion, backed with nothing. I stated my opinion, that Obama is a disaster. Do you really need a link to the unemployment rate, record high food stamps, etc...?

Yes, continually declaring what a disaster Obama is without any evidence is not a very compelling argument.
