Well according to the job numbers, the jobs created were Walmart jobs.
See? That is my most cynical side.
On a less lighter note, my second oldest son sent out forty, that is 40
job applications after he graduated with honors from a small prestigious school. He was a "Gifted and Talented" student and won a Presidential Achievement Award signed by President Clinton. He had a degree in finance and traded stocks in NYC.
No one. Not a firm in the financial district. Not Target. Not the local pizza joint, not no one would hire him for anything.
Being the ingenious knuckle headed fool that he is, he opted to join the military, despite my warnings and admonitions.
His devil in the details amounted to six years in the armed services and a year of that time in Afghanistan.
His future education (masters in some kind of biological engineering stuff that I know nothing of), and some of his past education has been and will be paid for by the US Government.
But at what cost? And was it worth it?
I highly doubt he would choose the same path if he had to do it all over again.
Really is it a choice between a Walmart world and laying your life on the line?
Is that still Bush's fault, or is that a fault in the philosophy?
Really what are the options for kids today and who is at fault for that?
Only one person gets to sit behind the desk that says " The Buck Stops Here".
I don't care if it is Attila the Hun in opposition,. if you fail the people, you fail the people. And people are pretty in tune to that. However stupid they may be.
And for the luv o Pete; Obama is above nothing any other pol is above or will be above.
And Kerry tried to register his boat in Rhode Island to avoid paying Massachusetts taxes until he got caught.
They all are cut from the same fabric.
Some just have different coiffs.
