I do agree with the GOP on something,Obama do needs to fire Timothy Geithier,because the guy along with the White house don't have a clue about whats going on with Main street...Geithner is a Wall Street guy,so why would Obama put a Wall Street guy in charge anyway? Obama is a Wall Street guy,who has no clue on how to fix the economy,because he has no Blue-Collar people in his administration...The people Obama has in his cabinet don't have a clue on how to relate to ordinary people.

Internet poll waste of time. You might as well try to interpet nuumbers picked out of a hat.

I agree with melvin on this one. Melvin, who did you support during the 2008 democratic primary?

Obama should have did his homework before he signed a stimulus bill,because its no secret that stimulus bills don't work...Japan in Europe tried it in the 90s in early 2000s,before they decided it don't work...Obama should have just went with a jobs bill,and investigated the unfair Nafta bill that has made China a very wealthy Country....The Nafta bill has taken Millions of manufacturing jobs away from the American people...Its time the White house do something about this Major problem,because Walmart,Target,Home Depot,Lowes,and other big box stores are getting away with murder,because 80% of they're merchandise is made in other Countries...The big box stores wants Americans to sell they're merchandise,but don't want Americans to make they're merchandise,and its just about time the Govt.put a stop to this right now.

OMG, I agree with melvin when he said:

"Obama should have did his homework before he signed a stimulus bill, because its no secret that stimulus bills don't work...Japan in Europe tried it in the 90s in early 2000s,before they decided it don't work...Obama should have just went with a jobs bill"

However, I would have used better grammar. ;-)

Fred: I supported John Edwards 100%...John Edwards who have never let the GOP control his Whitehouse,and you can bet John Edwards would have plenty of liberals in his cabinet unlike Obama who has none....The only way to get a Country out of a bad recession is to move to the left,like FDR,LBJ,and Wilson did...You Govern to the right or center when the Country is not in a bad recession.

Travis: Its well none Timothy Geithner came from Wall-Street..Timothy Geithner negotiated the Tarp bill for Bush.

Travis:

@melvin: No, it's popular misinformation that Geithner "worked for Wall Street."

"Mr. Geithner interrupted: “I have never actually been in banking. I have only been in public service.”

His questioner persisted: “Well, a long time ago. A long time.”

“Actually, never,” Mr. Geithner replied.

“Investment banking, I meant.”

“Never investment banking.”"

The NAFTA bill that is the North American Free Trade Agreement benefited China in what way? Please explain.

Yeah, and we should really not allow other countries to export goods to us. We should only be allowed to export to them. The USA would be a much better place!

knowing now about Edward's affair and such, attention would be all on that, and he wouldn't have been able to get anything done. Probably would have been impeached, because he denied a lot at first. When you say Obama doesn't have any liberals in his office, what do you mean by liberal? Do you mean far left people like Kusinich and Barney Frank or Nancy Pelosi? I mean, it isn't like he has republicans there. Obama did make some terrible choices in his cabinet, with Geithner and even worse than him, Robert Gibbs, who makes Obama look terrible. Obama also has Biden, who sticks his foot in his mouth whenever he speaks.

melvin:

Fred: I agree with you on Gibbs,and Obama should have put someone like Feingold,or Kerry,in his cabinet..FM: If Walmart,and other big box stores would only make 15% of they're merchandise in this Country,it would create over 3 million jobs immediately.

melvin:

Fred: At the time no one knew about John Edwards personal life,but i think John Edward would have known how to deal with this econoomic mess this Country is in right now,because John Edward has a history of working with mainstreet...

Field Marshal:

FM: If Walmart,and other big box stores would only make 15% of they're merchandise in this Country,it would create over 3 million jobs immediately.

And no one would buy the products because they would cost 5 times as much. Remember, Walmart is responsible for lifting more people out of poverty than all Christian initiatives combined- and way more than all government programs combined.

fm: Before Nafta the United States had over 30 million manufacturing jobs in this Country, and now the United States has only 10 million...FM if you wants cheap labour i suggest you move to Asia,where you will be very happy.

____________________

Field Marshal:

And we had 50 million in the 1950's. Manufacturing jobs have been declining since WWII. Its an antiquated employment source similar to agriculture. However, we still produced more goods last year in manufacturing than we did in any other year. We are still the largest manufacturer of goods in the world though China will soon pass us. Seeking ways to promote a dying and inefficient use of labor and capital will just make this country more uncompetitive.

If you want to revert this country back 50-100 years, than i suggest you move to some destitute third world country.

Field Marhal...thank you for that. I knew it, but most don't.

People equate the fact that we don't have as many people engaged in low-skill manufacturing with the lack of a manufacturing base. Our manufacturing output is as high as ever, and our manufacturing base is more productive than ever because employees are concentrated in high-value added industries.

I work in a plant that maufactures very sophisticated and specialized electronics and communications equipment. It involves dozens of engineers, technicians and technical marketing people, all of whom are paid very well. All the government has to do is let companies retain the free cash flow needed to fund the sort of R&D such organizatios require. We spend millions on products before they ever go to market....policies have to encourage that sort of risk.
