How many jobs have Republicans saved since their take over in the midterms in 2010?
I gave up asking how many they created, now I just want to know if they even saved any. Republicans told us in 2005 it is not the presidents job to create jobs but now tell us Obama is not creating enough.

Democrats still control the Senate and WHite House. It's bad enough when they are the minority party everywhere, filibustering everything. This mess is all the Democrat's fault. You can't blame Bush anymore.

As many as Obama "saved or created" with the stimu-lie. Apparently, Obama's gonna make another speech today in Detroit. We'd better get our shovels ready because with Obama's BS, we'll need them.

Nothing significant. Obama is blocking them from repealing the job-killing Obamacare.
