3. Mr. President, you should've been focusing on the economy all along.

Instead, as soon as your wall-street-style economic advisers told you that everything was going to be hunky dory (and you had a rough time with the Pugs), you just shimmied over to something else and left JOBS and the economy in a bad place.

Are you now, almost four years later, just starting to realize that things aren't as great as Larry Summers and Time Geithner told you?

By focusing on jobs and the economy do you mean focusing on the Trans Pacific Partnership?

I hate to say it, but the President has disappointed me so many time on this subject that I'll believe it when the U-6 number starts going down below 10.

On edit: improving education might help employment in the long run, but I have my doubts that
reducing the deficit will do much now and in the near future. And those Afghan vets will need jobs. Where will they come from Mr. President?
